Ok, so I did it again. I fell off the tracking wagon, and fell off the exercise wagon. It's been less than a week, though, and I'm hopping back on. Never give up, right? I don't have any words of wisdom, but I do have insights. When I get d... Read more

So those last three pounds that took me up to 215 went on REALLY FAST!! I sort of developed an addiction to white chocolate covered pretzels, and ate them almost every day in very large quantities. If I went to the movies, those babies were stas... Read more

So today I got on the scale and it read 215. I can't believe I'm back here again when I was so full of joy for getting below 200. However, I know exactly what I did wrong. I tried to reinvent the wheel. I thought I could find an easier, softer w... Read more

For those of you who are against HCG, let me tell you that I kept the weight off, even when I went back to eating normally. I'm doing another round right now and it's easier than before, especially since I know it will stay off and it's not jus... Read more

Do you adjust your schedule, get up early, and exercise for two weeks straight... and then find that you only lost half a pound? Do you adjust your eating so that you eat smaller portions, fresher ingredients, and avoid your trigger foods w... Read more

Last night things went particularly well with my eating, and today I lost half a pound of water weight, most likely. Whatever the reason, the scale cooperated and it helps. I'm still 1-1/2 pounds above 200 so will be working on that daily. ... Read more

My husband took me out to dinner last night to Sweet Tomatoes, which is also known as Soup Plantation. I got a really healthy salad with spinach and bright vegetables, no cheese, and just a tad of ranch dressing. THEN, I was faced with all the... Read more

Maintaining TO THE OUNCE!

It's so funny that my weight is EXACTLY the same this week: 198.6! I'm increasing my calories a little bit at a time, and adding in peanut butter. That has healthy fats (which I need) and even some sugar (which I should avoid). Tonight I'm ma... Read more

Thursday, February 17, 2011 7 comments
For those of you who say weighing daily is bad, I understand what you are saying. That is certainly conventional wisdom and it has helped a lot of people stop making themselves crazy over the scale. I just want to clarify that the only reason ... Read more
Some weight gain, hoping it will go away.

Ok, it's true... I did have some chocolate cake on Valentine's Day and I'm probably paying for it. When ending the hcg protocol, I am supposed to avoid sugar and carbs completely for three weeks so this could be the deal. I hope so. The idea ... Read more

So I'm reading the Beck Diet for Life book and it had me create response cards to different temptations. For instance, when my mind says "I really MUST have that piece of cake," I write a response on the back of that card that says something li... Read more
