Thursday, July 22, 2010 35 comments
I'm a good Canadian--I looooove Tim Bits (they are the donut holes, for those who live without the Double/Double, eh?). I was leafing through the paper yesterday and read a little article about the mighty TimBit--50 to 120 calories, dependi... Read more

Changes are Working--I can cross my legs!
Tuesday, July 13, 2010 34 comments
I was having some problems with motivation, eating, and exercising during June. With some help from Spark friends, I realized that a big part of the problem was that summer had disrupted my routine. People gave me a lot of great suggestion... Read more
Fat--the Ultimate Crime
Friday, July 09, 2010 16 comments
Watching last night's episode of X-Weighted (which I enjoy because it is a much more realistic and positive show than Biggest Loser), I was dismayed by the self-loathing the mother felt toward herself because she was fat. At one point, she was s... Read more
4 Pizza Boxes--but I still have the power of CHOICE
Wednesday, July 07, 2010 20 comments
So, four pizza boxes are sitting in our paper recycling bin. Which is collected every two weeks. And, sad to report, 3 of those boxes accumulated over 4 days. Yep--we ate pizza for dinner 3 nights out of 4 last week. ... Read more

This morning, I'm putting on my jeans (which is brand new for me to even wear pants) and I realized that I was standing on one leg and pulling on the other pant leg!!! Some of you reading this blog will know what a huge deal this is--you've had ... Read more
5 New Milestones

1. On Saturday night, I fit into an old dress that I loved and hadn't been able to wear for at least 4 years. My husband was actually speechless for a moment--he told me seeing me in that dress again really brought home the changes I was making.... Read more
Summer is Tough
Tuesday, June 22, 2010 25 comments
This might sound kind of whiny, but it is really more of an acknowledgment that I have to realign my expectations. Back in January when I started this, I dreamed about summer--all the fresh produce, not having to worry about slipping on ice, goi... Read more
Running for the Bus
Monday, June 21, 2010 13 comments
I ran for the bus twice this weekend and caught it! Okay--so running was actually a very quick shuffle that probably looked pretty funny if anyone had been taping it, but I still caught both buses. One bus catch saved me a $15 cab fare... Read more
ONE pound up--and No, it's not muscle
Thursday, June 17, 2010 26 comments
I was not looking forward to getting on the scale this morning and sure enough, I was a pound up over last week. Ughh! Yes, that was my first reaction. And my second reaction, too. Okay, maybe a bit more R-rated. ... Read more
60 pounds down AND BMI is below 50!
Thursday, June 10, 2010 29 comments
This morning marks 60 pounds lost. Yesterday, at the supermarket, I did spend an enjoyable 5 minutes staring at the Crisco blocks and seeing what 60 pounds of lard looked like! I could have made a lot of flaky pies with what I've burned up since... Read more

"My wife with the pretty jowls"
Friday, June 04, 2010 26 comments
My husband: "Ready for dinner, my pretty-jowled wife?" he actually meant to compliment me on my re-emerging jaw-line, but had a bit of a word mix-up! Me: "Smooth-talker!" It is kind of nice to look in the mirror and see "my" face comi... Read more
Unrealistic Goals Set Me Up to Fail
Wednesday, June 02, 2010 22 comments
Between January 8th and April 1, I dropped 10% of my body weight--34.8 pounds. An absolutely great result that came from eating within my nutrition tracker suggested calorie spread and meeting the exercise suggestion of 15 minutes of exercise a ... Read more
