Brain surgery is fairly precise and has an expected outcome, right? Losing weight is not. Nowhere close. And it's pissing me off...cuz it took NO EFFORT to gain it. Stands to reason in my messed up head that it should NOT take THIS much effort t... Read more

I've seen a lot of folks saying they gained over the holidays. I gained over my "spark break" too. Which was longer than the holidays and put me back to nearly my highest weight ever. I am on the path again, but I think...that maybe there's som... Read more

I haven't spilled them in a long time. Busy stuffing them, I guess. Yes. It's emotional eating. Yes. I recognize that. And no...it really isn't half the battle. It's maybe a one hundreth of the battle...one percent. A penny to the doll... Read more

I want to run. In my heart, I do. My legs do not want to cooperate. I started the C25K program today with some downloaded podcasts. The guy tells you to start out and warm up by "walking briskly" and then he tells you at intervals when to r... Read more

I know, walking is one of the "easier" exercises. I don't do it much. I get on the bike and in the pool and go for hours. But walking hurts me. My feet, my hips, knees, back. I'm not saying I never walk any place. It's just not my exercise of ch... Read more

Well, ok, let's just say my self esteem has been sharing that little row boat with the TidyBowl man for quite awhile now. This last week of exercising every day has actually made me feel pretty good. Physically. I feel good. It's bizarre. I was... Read more

Maybe my attitude for one thing. I'm not being so strict that I want to flog myself if I have a burrito. I'm eating healthy most days, but if I deviate I am not going to throw myself off a cliff. Life happens and the whole point of being thin... Read more

OK, so...fell off...dragged behind the wagon for a week or so. Then pulled my self up onto the wheel, only to be run over and over and over for another week. *sigh* So melodramatic. Heh. Actually, several things happened. And, I learned, s... Read more

Trying to figure this cheat meal thing out. I love the idea of it, but in researching I found some conflicting opinions about it. For example: "Eating junk for a day is like quitting smoking and allowing yourself a day to smoke a carton i... Read more
