A few bumps on the road...
Sunday, September 06, 2009      0 comments

So last week, I did what EVERYONE tells you not to do. I ignored all the good habits I'd learned in the past 8 weeks. I didn't drink much water, didn't get any exercise, didn't journal my food entries, ate later than I needed to, had too many tr... Read more
No longer in the 300-Club

It first happened last week; the digital scales I'd purchased 3 years ago showed a number starting with something other than '3'. I didn't quite believe it, so I took 3 readings and averaged them out. 301lbs. not bad I thought. Even though my pl... Read more

OK, I have to admit I'm in a really good place now. After a bumpy start at the beginning of the week (I weigh myself everyday), my weight just fell off the last 3 days. I'm actually ahead of my weekly target right now, and I haven't done anythin... Read more

Actually, it was a good week overall, food-wise. I mostly stuck with the plan, made some adjustments as I wentn along, kept track of my food, and started to understand my food moods better. (It seems I am something of a carb junkie). Now... Read more
Do it afraid

I almost feel like I scared myself into a less than spectacular week. My weight went down by less than 1lb, and yesterday I just fell - well, to be totally honest I JUMPED - off the wagon entirely. I didn't let myself enjoy those weeks (rare, bu... Read more

It's been 2 weeks of daily weight loss (I weigh myself every day, but track a 5-day moving average to save my sanity). So I should be excited, right? And I am. But I'm also just a little scared. I've never in my life watched my weight so close... Read more
5lbs down and counting...

I'm not as excited over the fact of the 5lbs as I am over the fact that I consistently shed poundage over a week. I'm used to falling off the wagon every 3 or so days, and my weight bouncing around. But this week, pretty much everything went the... Read more

Just the act of sitting down to write out all my meals for the week has been so liberating! And so empowering. Knowing ahead of time what I intend to eat allows me to be more focused and efficient (and penny-wise!) in my shopping, spend less tie... Read more
Wow! I'm just a fount of wisdom these days..

Another thing I learnt recently about my weight loss journey. I really cannot hide it from my friends and family. I know this sounds silly, but I had this fantasy that I would just somehow whittle away my waist slowly over time, and my nearest a... Read more

Fear. Safety. I've thought about those two things a lot the last few days. It seems to me that I've used food to feel safe. It's not exactly clear to me why, and even writing it seems strange. But I think my way of dealing with stress and u... Read more

I've been away for about a month now, not entirely planned and not entirely my fault. (Although enough of my fault that I feel really bad about it). anyway, here I am in windy north england, manchester to be precise, contemplating taking up... Read more

YAAAY! Yesterday I fit into a pair of pants I bought in February this year but haven't been able to wear since! I wore it to work and got quite a few compliments. I haven't really told people at work I'm improving my lifestyle (hate the word 'di... Read more

Yaaay! Made it through week 5. Have successfully worked out 5 days a week for the past 5 weeks, raising my minutes on the elliptical trainer from 5 the first day to 20 every day this week. Some days (Wednesday!) were hellish, but I pushed throug... Read more
Moving along just nicely thank you

Yes, it's been a while since I last checked in here. But actually I've been on the site consistently for at least 5 weeks. Yaay! I've also lost 3lbs, and have moved from 5 minutes on the elliptical machine to 20 minutes- 5 days a week! I'm so p... Read more
