I've definitely been losing focus on the NN challenge. My anxieties are at an all-time high. Work is really, really bad. I'm really upset with how unfair management is being... to me and to other people. Decisions are being made that are... Read more

I went to the hospital for my pre-operation appointment. They asked so many question, to which I answered "no" expect for having high chloesterol (on medication), being overweight/obese (they know that from the stats), and overdrinking (obvious... Read more

Today was weigh in and I GAINED 3 of the 4 pounds I lost last week. Very discouraging... But wait, I'm not a victim... I'm in control over everything I put in my mouth, and how much exercise I get... my biggest problem is caloric intake. ... Read more
Day 11 of NN challenge

I've been distracted lately... it's so easy to forget what I should be doing, as I always seem to play those tapes over in my head, moreso than actually doing the change. I'm not sure I'm using my new knee brace right. Is it on right? It ... Read more

The scale says I've lost 4lb in a week. I'm wise enough to know that wasn't all fat... how much water? I don't know, but it's a loss and it gets me closer to my goal. I have so much to improve. ... Read more

I finally got back on track on day 4... better late that never! What I did well today - made a delicious simple salsa and had it for breakfast (3 veggie servings right there) - planned for a movie outing...I brought a protein bar and wa... Read more

I reluctantly report on myself.... What I did right... - I took a rest day from exercise (that, in balance, is a good thing) - I didn't do evening snacking (which is commonplace for me) - I didn't purchase any chocolate - I didn't e... Read more

I just tallied my calories from yesterday and see that the second bowl of Pad Thai and extra peanuts put me over. Yes, it was unplanned. My daughter loves Pad Thai so I like to make it for her but it is definitely a trigger food for me. I nev... Read more

Day one done... I can't say that I felt strong on the first day out of the gate, but seemed to have done better overall than I thought. What I did well - I stayed within my daily calorie range (when I count the exercise calories burnt) ... Read more

I went to a clinic, months after being recommended for a knee brace. Let's back up.... I have osteoarthritis, and it's definitely been causing me "knee discomfort"... many years after being in denial I went to the Knee Replacement Clinic wit... Read more
I don't want to be obese anymore

I want to be back at my weight 20 years ago when I thought I was fat. Now, that is my goal weight. It would be within the healthy BMI (upper end). I've never been a skinny gal so it'd be silly to think I ever will be. I do want to be health... Read more

Dear self, You have had a very defeatist attitude for years now. You've taken the view that it's not worth restricting your caloric intake since you won't be able to anyway. Deep down, you know that is not true. Yes, it may be difficult and... Read more
Advice Sought....

It's not diet related, but more of a "social concern" I’m looking for some feedback here. I have an acquaintance at work who has passed out “save the date” notices to certain females in our age range. I just found out that she had checked... Read more
