Coming Along
Wednesday, April 18, 2012      11 comments

Out of the last sixteen days, fourteen have been under 2500 calories. I'm down to 555. I wish it were a bit faster, but I'll take what I can get. I've added daily exercise. Every hour I do chair dancing to one song on iTunes. I'll increase the a... Read more
Follow the Bouncing Ball
Wednesday, April 04, 2012      6 comments

Dropped to 558, back up to 560. My current short-term goal is to get as many days under 2500 calories as I can. (Two days so far.) Then my next goal will be to try and beat the number of days. My exercise hasn't been great. It's been really... Read more
Back to Where I Began
Wednesday, March 21, 2012      3 comments

I've time warped back to January 1st and again weigh 560. I suppose I shouldn't feel too badly. I could have continued to binge and put on more weight. I think, as a friend put it, my "don't want to binge" muscle was strengthened by this latest ... Read more
Fallen Behind
Thursday, March 01, 2012      10 comments

I've been ashamed to post because I went on a binge streak and have gained a lot of weight. I think I'm finally over it though. I hope this is the last time I lose control like that. It made me realize that overeating solves nothing plus I regai... Read more
Holidays Were Unholy
Friday, January 20, 2012      7 comments

Okay, so I started off okay during the holiday but then got up to 565 for a total of 14 pounds regained. I'm heading back down now though and with luck will be on track for losing 100 pounds in 2012. I tried not tracking my food, but that was a ... Read more
Holding Steady for the Holidays
Thursday, December 22, 2011      3 comments

My weight hasn't changed much in the last couple of weeks and I'm okay with that. I've been taking a break from food tracking and it shows on the scale. As long as I don't gain, I'm happy. Come January first, I'll be focused on my single goal of... Read more
Seem to Be on a Roll
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      0 comments

Everything seems to be coming together now and I'm consistently losing weight. Even if I fall off the wagon for a meal or day, I tend to get right back on again before any damage is done. This is good because I'm tired of the skin infections. Ye... Read more
Average Weight Loss
Monday, November 14, 2011      8 comments

I've been seriously working on weight loss for about 2.5 years. I'm averaging a loss of 48 pounds per year. Slow, slow, slow. Okay, it's twice as fast as I put in on but at this rate it will be six years before I'm at a decent weight. I really n... Read more
Keep on Swimming
Monday, October 17, 2011      1 comments

I'm still losing weight. It's a combination of tracking my food daily, staying with my calorie range, one hour of pool exercise twice a week and, probably, adjustments to my thyroid medications. I slip now and then, sometimes badly, with my... Read more
That's More Like It
Monday, October 03, 2011      1 comments

The seven pound loss is unexpected but welcome. I'm the lowest weight I've been in a decade or so. I have to say that the pool exercise and the additional activity, mostly light housekeeping, I've been doing has really paid off. I'm also trying ... Read more
Finally Updating
Tuesday, September 27, 2011      2 comments

I lost control and gained so much weight I was too ashamed and embarrassed to blog the last couple of months. But I'm back on track now and have lost near everything I gained. My husband is in a new job and, while I don't want to get my hop... Read more
A Get Together
Tuesday, September 20, 2011      3 comments

I'm on the far right. I'm not one for posting pictures, as you can imagine. But I had a good time with good people. It's hard for me to get out but I'm glad when I do.... Read more
Short Update
Tuesday, July 26, 2011      6 comments

I've been out of control eating for about ten days now and have gained 14 pounds. It's time to stop! Husband's hours got cut. Then he got laid off. Then he got a new job. Hormones are affecting my moods. Emotional eating is my downfall. I s... Read more
It's Been a Bad Week
Monday, July 18, 2011      5 comments

And it's a bad day. Found out that my husband's hours are being cut on Thursday and it went all down hill from there. Lost control of my eating. Premenstrual. Bad dreams at night. Having thoughts of ending it all because I'm so bloody tired of f... Read more
Keep on Trucking
Wednesday, July 13, 2011      2 comments

No change this week either. It's not entirely unexpected as my food isn't where I want it to be. I'm more on track this week and staying within in my calorie range. I've been speaking with Rick B. who was featured as one of the 80 people in What... Read more
