Plodding along
Monday, May 11, 2009      5 comments

Well, I'm still here, sort of. The past couple of weeks have, without question, been made up of the worst food choices that I've made in nearly a year. On Saturday I stopped at McDonald's not once but twice. Yes, I was on the road but sti... Read more
Doing some thinking and facing some fears
Wednesday, April 22, 2009      3 comments

I've noticed a pattern. Every time I get to a new lowest weight under 210 I start bingeing and sabotaging myself. I'll reach for foods that I haven't touched in months, or start compulsively eating things I've been okay with only one or two of. ... Read more
A belated thank you for the birthday wishes!
Saturday, April 11, 2009      2 comments

Thank you so much -- long-time (well, you know what I mean) friends and new for the birthday wishes! They contributed to an absolutely wonderful day! I haven't been online as much as in the past, which is why you're not seeing me here as mu... Read more
Who cares if it's not "true" sizing!
Sunday, March 15, 2009      5 comments

Today I decided that knowing that something's a 16 only because of "vanity sizing" is completely irrelevant when you fit into said size 16 pants. Size 16! Me! Now, if you look at my weight you'll see that I'm not a true/old size 16 -- not... Read more
Changing perspectives on weight and kids
Saturday, February 21, 2009      1 comments

Several years ago I went to some dance team competitions with my friend P. I got excited every time I saw a heavier girl on the team. I was excited because she loved dancing and was eager to perform on a team because she either didn't know or di... Read more
Sleep now?

As it turns out, I managed to wash all the salt out before my WI -- I was down 2.4! So the .4 from last week was gone, plus another 2 besides. Yay! Zumba felt harder this week, but it was still fun. I think my legs were still a bit tired... Read more

Last week wasn't great for activity *or* salt intake, but it's just one week in a lifetime. I can live with that. I'm a little worried about WI tomorrow because of the salt in my dinner tonight (lasagna), but again -- it's one WI. I'm in this... Read more

Results already!
Wednesday, January 28, 2009      2 comments

Some of you may recall that I started a new weight training routine on January 2. Yesterday, after only 25 days -- and strength training only 2 days/week -- I already saw results. And I mean really saw -- not looked for. I was in my belly... Read more
Back and trying something else new!
Monday, January 12, 2009      4 comments

I'm back from NJ and am ready to try keeping myself to a schedule again. I'm using Google Calendar and Outlook to help me this time -- I'll let you know how it goes. Last week I did a couple of new things while in NJ. My cable there has E... Read more
New strength training routine -- ow!
Friday, January 02, 2009      4 comments

It's not a bad ow, but ow! I've always believed in strength training for endurance rather than being able to quickly lift a high weight for a very short period of time (8 reps or less). Up until today, I've done 3 sets of 8 slow reps (5 se... Read more
New Goals for 2009
Thursday, January 01, 2009      2 comments

I've spent a lot of time, over the past several days, working on my goals. I tried to make goals that were SMART this year. This was a challenge -- I may have a vision/outcome, but I'm not always great at enumerating specific goals to reach it... Read more
End-of-year Assessment
Thursday, January 01, 2009      2 comments

Yes, this is the ubiquitous self-evaluation. But hey -- you can't move forward without looking to where you've come from. I started out by stating the following goals here: 1. Create a happier and more balanced life for myself, over... Read more
Happy holidays, everyone!

I'm at my in-laws' house, so am having very limited access to the internet. I just wanted to pop in to wish everyone a bright and joyous holiday season!... Read more
A Promise
Tuesday, December 16, 2008      2 comments

Today I promise to find small rewards to give myself each day, for the next 2 weeks, to reward myself for all the good things I've been doing for my body. I've been putting this off for at least weeks, maybe even months at this point. I've... Read more
