I lost a pound this week. And I'm happy about that. It's one thing to know that if you work out and eat well you'll lose weight, it's another thing to see the reverse - how if you don't eat quite as well or work out quite so much, you don't ge... Read more
Losing Steam
Thursday, September 19, 2013      2 comments

Well, the weekend did me in. Not completely, but partially. I lost my get-up-and-go, gung-ho-ness! I stayed home from work on Tuesday, so I didn't work out. I did go swimming last night, but I didn't get as many laps in as I would have liked... Read more
Fantastic First Week!
Monday, September 16, 2013      4 comments

Well, the first week of the Fall Weight Loss Challenge is over and I lost 6 lbs! In a week! I know it's partly my body in shock - I mean, c'mon. But that doesn't make me less happy about it! I was aiming for 8 lbs actually (because I like my... Read more
Weekend Worries
Friday, September 13, 2013      6 comments

So I'm approaching the first weekend that I'm being healthy, and I've got to admit, I'm a little nervous. Things are just different on the weekend, you know? It's easier to deter from my plans and to decide to be lazy, or at least be busy with... Read more
Fall Weight Loss Challenge - Day 3
Wednesday, September 11, 2013      1 comments

Well, I'm still at it! It's a miracle! :) Today I had my first test in a restaurant. I did okay. Not as well as I could have, not nearly as badly as I usually do. I'm still in my calorie range so all is good! And because it's a place w... Read more
Fall Weight Loss Challenge - Day 2
Tuesday, September 10, 2013      0 comments

Today I made myself work out. It wasn't my idea, but when a friend said "hey, we should go to this class!" I said you know what? Yeah! My gut reaction was "eww, no" - but that's what I'm trying to change. And the class didn't kill me. Al... Read more
Fall Weight Loss Challenge - Day 1
Monday, September 09, 2013      0 comments

Well, I'm doing the Fall Weight Loss Challenge at work - yay! I'm really excited about it actually. There's nothing revolutionary about what we're doing in the challenge - eating well and working out, but there's a new level of accountability.... Read more
Back Again
Monday, June 24, 2013      1 comments

How many times have I written "back again?" It feels countless. I have now, officially, been yo-yo dieting for ten years. All of my adult life. And I've only gotten, with brief respites, heavier and heavier. I don't want to be this moti... Read more
My Precious - the food version
Thursday, December 13, 2012      0 comments

I'm pretty good about sharing, anything, especially food. Until we get to dessert. I HATE sharing dessert (unless it's planned upon beforehand). I don't mind sharing a bite, but a history of half of my dessert disappearing into the mouths of ... Read more
Emotional Eating
Tuesday, December 04, 2012      4 comments

When I think of emotional eating, I generally think of comfort food. Emotional eating is for when things are bad, right? Wrong. I use food as a celebration, as a comfort, as an escape. Happy, sad, stressed, excited - it all means food for me... Read more
Here I Am!
Sunday, December 02, 2012      3 comments

Well, I reset my Spark information - after YEARS (of course, spreadsheet junkie that I am, I do have a spreadsheet of my weight history). I'm horrified, HORRIFIED, by how much weight I've let myself gain. And I look at how long it will tak... Read more
Bad Mood
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      2 comments

Today I am in a bad bad bad bad mood. Today started as one of those days that Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables) called a "Jonah Day" - a day when your patience is tried and tried and where everything that can go wrong will. Well, that's ... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me!
Tuesday, May 29, 2012      1 comments

Well, yesterday was my birthday! I am now 27 years old - eek! That's SO close to 30! And it also means that I've been actively trying to lose weight, off and on, for 9 years now. And all I've done, in the end, is get heavier and heavier. ... Read more
Kill Me Now!
Friday, May 25, 2012      4 comments

This entry has nothing to do with weight loss or eating or anything like that, just ME. I'm just using it to vent some personal issues.... SO - ugh - how to make a long story short? Yesterday I found out that I would be going to a 2nd i... Read more
Changing My Mindset
Monday, May 21, 2012      3 comments

I have this problem... this idea that as long as I eat a little bit better than the completely horrible way I was eating last week, that that's enough. And that if I have a couple of days where I'm actually good, not just a little bit better, w... Read more
