I just finished reading "Women, Food and God" by Geneen Roth. It's the second time I read it. I alway thought about emotional eating and knew I was an emotional eater, but I just never really SAW myself as an emotional eater. I just didn't mak... Read more

My last blog entry was May 31st and I was up 5 pounds. *sigh* I'm back up to 330. The family crisis escalated and now my old aunt (84yrs old) has moved in with us. It was a case of trying to rescue her from an elder abuse situation. She's sw... Read more

A family crisis and two weeks of unguided, untracked, and uncared-for eating. Five pounds up. I won't go down without a fight! Nooo no no!! (Insert "I will survive" theme song here) Today started off rough and will continue t... Read more

I ate so much today, if I even begin to explain it I think I might explode. My niece's grad party...started with breakfast and ended with home made black forest cake. If I ate less than 6000 calories today, I would be surprised. S... Read more

This is so weird. Why does the scale NOT go down the day after I work out? It's like I work out, then have the next day OFF..and the NEXT morning I'll see the scale budge. Hmm....gotta think on that. Wonder why that is. I only seem to see a we... Read more
Choosing to Live - It's not too late

I woke up at 3am with the following thought - is it too late? While sure I'm losing weight .... - Is my heart already damaged and full of blockages ready to kill me? - Is my circulation so bad that even if I hit my goal I'll one day ... Read more

Fat and Happy?

Well, the weekend was a bust. I ate way too much, but funny, I didn't gain anything. Anyway, that's behind me. It was more like a controlled increase of calories. I didn't go over 2200 on any day and I did keep my carbs under control for the mo... Read more
Not eating enough - that's my problem

Ok, so I said that this week I would try increasing my calories to see if it helped me lose (again, I don't really weigh in officially until Sunday, but I've changed it to every two weeks) and get some results. So far since last Sunday the sca... Read more

Ok, so I've been obsessing about the fact that I'm addicted to my scale. I had a doctor's appointment this morning and told my doc about my obsession. He said something really profound... As you know our weight can fluctuate up and down 2-... Read more

I'm hanging on for dear diet-life! The last couple of days have been SO hard! It was my neighbor's birthday and they brought over cake..and insisted I had a piece...so I did. I had about 600-800 calories left for the day, so I think I'm still... Read more
Still not noticeable. Oh well.
Monday, May 10, 2010 6 comments
One thing I always find frustrating is that on some people a 10lb, 20lb, 30lb loss can be really noticeable. Like, stop you in your tracks type of noticeable. On me a 20 pound loss isn't really that obvious. The last time I lost a lot of wei... Read more
