The week of allergy pain and a night of splurge
Friday, January 20, 2012      1 comments

So, this week I 'failed' the exercise goal (unless I put in heavy time today and tomorrow - I just might, we'll see) because Monday afternoon I got hit with the Mack truck of allergy pain. Monday noon, fine - by 5PM I had a headache that almost ... Read more
Weigh-in!
Monday, January 16, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday's weigh was another hurrah - I discarded 3.2 more pounds! I think my scale is against me - it said I had maintained. I was prepared to walk in to the center thrilled to maintain as there is a cyclical thing where I increase for a while... Read more

Didn't need that!

A day on my own for lunch (not the JC foods) - had a lunch meeting with food supplied -- Pizza Hut medium pizzas. I grabbed two slices, one 1/8 of a pizza and one smaller (you know the one, with the adjoining huge slice!). Counting them both as ... Read more

W00t! Just mowed my lawn... in January... in 70 degree weather. So nice to be back down here and out of the snow! I bought a rotary push (people-powered) mower. The best thing I find about it is my ears aren't ringing and my hands aren't numb af... Read more
Celebratory moment!!!
Wednesday, January 04, 2012      7 comments

I bought my current-sized pants from Lane Bryant for Christmas, a present for myself: size 20. It took me until this week to try them on to wear for work. The good news is they were too big, so off to the store I went to exchange. The great new... Read more
Did first measure, second weigh in
Thursday, December 29, 2011      1 comments

It looks like I am down a couple of pounds, and I went ahead and measured everything. Next month I hope to be able to post a difference in amount, negatively of course! This is one time where negative is a positive! ... Read more
10 lbs, then 10 more
Tuesday, December 20, 2011      0 comments

I'm in Information Technology. I just read "5 Mind Games You Need to Stop Playing" on the site and it struck me. Just like many projects are changing from long-term, huge endeavors to small goals set out with lots of small releases, so too we ne... Read more
Child's BDay weekend
Monday, May 03, 2010      1 comments

My youngest is sixteen now, and a weekend of going out, cake, ice cream, etc was the norm. I also made a cake that was gluten-free and still worked well, simply changing the flour in one of my cookbook recipes. No real change in calories but sma... Read more
So, how many times does one start over?
Tuesday, April 27, 2010      3 comments

I guess the idea is to keep trying - what has kept me away? relationship issues; hard times with my family that finally ended up a month ago in my being single again. What did all that stress do to me? I went back to bad habits, mostly no exerci... Read more
Proof I had been learning
Monday, September 14, 2009      3 comments

I am working on fast start again - meaning I don't "think" too much about what I am eating, I just log to see where I am. Yesterday's numbers were in the gold for every single thing I have been tracking. The only two ouchers: not enough fruits/v... Read more
starting over... where am I now.
Friday, September 11, 2009      1 comments

Not sure I am ready to start over. But that doesn't mean I shouldn't try, right? I am going to pretend I didn't stop.. and in some days I didn't! I have found my new set point: 233. I rose back to that level from 223 and STAYED there. 10 lbs is ... Read more
Feb recap - March Goals
Thursday, March 05, 2009      2 comments

Feb goals: At least 10 glasses of water per day - not good - if anything a bit of backsliding. At least 5 fruits and veggies per day (with more servings of veggies than fruits) - failure - lucky to get four a day. At least 25 g fiber ... Read more

Back to Work blues?
Monday, March 02, 2009      2 comments

Blech, I tell you, I am having not much fun on a regular basis! Mondays seem to be let's be sick day; this has happened three out of the last four weeks! Today is worse than the other two. Hard to get into gear when the gear keeps breaking. ... Read more
