AAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH! I had a decent week last week... I worked out 4 days (burned over 2000 calories) and stayed 'around' my cal requirements (+- one or two hundred cals) and I had an AMAZING weigh-in... (only .5 lbs away from goal number o... Read more

In 30 days I lost 6.3 pounds and 6 inches all over... Like last month I am shocked by the inches lost. I also lost 1 point on the BMI scale. August was a struggle for me. I ate what ever I wanted for approximately 2 weeks. Thankfully I was a... Read more

Today I was faced with a decision... a decision that asked me to apply all that I've learned over the past few weeks to every day life. Today I ordered a salad from a pizza place that had St. Louis Rib Sauce, chicken, lettuce, onions, peppers, ... Read more

I am having struggles with exercising... One - I hate it (I know... I have to suck it up and just do it) Two - I think I may have done something bad to one of my feet. I have a 'bubble' protruding from the side of my foot. It doesn't hurt wher... Read more
Nervous 'bout weigh-in
Wednesday, July 22, 2009 6 comments
Tomorrow is my 'official' weigh-day and I am terrified to weigh myself. It's not that I've fallen off the wagon or haven't been exercising, it's that I have... and the last time I weighed myself (after doing a week of 'behaving') I'd only lost ... Read more

If I don't want to weigh myself... why would I want to weigh my food...?

Another day has come and gone and I'm still managing to stay within my nutrient requirements but I'm finding it hard to track some of the food that I'm eating.... such as salads... diced meats... veggies/fruits that are sliced/diced or in chunks... Read more
