Uncharted territory
Tuesday, September 25, 2012      2 comments

Yay for me I got in 92 minutes of exercise today and the dogs got to swim a LOT! I also got to see some sandhill cranes and a flock of grazing geese and a pheasant. I was also very happy to lose another pound! I've been reading the Spark boo... Read more
Good exercise day.

I really do think I'm getting in better shape. I went for an hour walk with the dogs and when I came home I went back out and rode my bike for 1.5 miles, AND I'm not exhausted! I recently bought a Fitbit activity and sleep tracker and it's ... Read more
Drug of choice
Friday, September 21, 2012      9 comments

For way too many years, alcohol was my drug of choice that I used to treat depression, anxiety, anger, fear and loneliness. I also used food but when I quit drinking I really turned to food and gained a 100 or more pounds. I'm pretty sure this... Read more
Find a streak
Thursday, September 20, 2012      5 comments

Well, if I had a streak it sure faltered and almost went out. I was not able to get my anti-depressant meds before I went on conference and I think by day 3 I was on a downward slope. Then I ate the two pieces of cake. By the time I got home... Read more
Oh noes!

Oh noes! I just ate two pieces of cake at lunch although I did not eat the French fries. No exercise yet either and I don't think I will get home before dark so I can walk or bike. ... Read more
I used the workout room!

I actually used the workout room at the motel! I walked for 12 min. at 2.5 miles an hour an worked up quit a sweat. I've never, ever used the workout facilities while at a convention! Dinner was at a Fudruckers and I had a steak sandwich with... Read more
Convention challenge part 2

Okay,so far at the convention I brought my own breakfast and for the mid-morning break I just had fruit. Yay me! For lunch it was a salad with grilled chicken, so that was a good meal choice, I did fall down on having two dinner rolls with but... Read more
Taming the convention monster!
Saturday, September 15, 2012      3 comments

I've got another challenge facing me as I'm at another library convention. I did follow some suggestions I've got from other members here and packed my granola bars, fruit and vegetables and a morning drink. So I'm all set for breakfasts and f... Read more
Dang it all.

Dang it all! I gained another pound. This is just plain aggravating and hateful. I know it's gotta be that I had too much bread.... Read more
Temporarily lost Pollyanna hat
Wednesday, September 12, 2012      2 comments

I called in sick today and I'm feeling guilty. I wasn't THAT sick, mainly exhausted from not enough sleep caused by a mini manic episode last night. And as is normal for me, after one of those episodes I get really depressed and fall into my p... Read more

Oh it's late and I need to go to bed. I wanted to say thanks to all those who commented on my last blog post. Maybe tomorrow I can respond to each one. Only lost .2 today but that's okay as at least it wasn't a gain! I wonder what tomorrow w... Read more
100 pounds of fat on the wall
Monday, September 10, 2012      7 comments

I'm reminded of the song "99 bottles of beer on the wall" as I take weight off. Maybe the title to my song could be "100 pounds of fat on the wall." I took another pound of fat off the wall today so now there are 86 left. Whoo boy, I better n... Read more
I'm gobsmacked!
Monday, September 10, 2012      4 comments

I lost another two pounds! I couldn't believe my eyes and I'm still suspicious that it really isn't so. I'm starting to have a little hope that maybe, just maybe I can do this. I was just looking back on some old weight and blood glucose num... Read more
To weigh or not to weigh
Saturday, September 08, 2012      3 comments

Well I'll be! I weighed myself this morning even though I had decided to only weigh once a week and I had dropped the two conference pounds. I was sure it would take another week to do that, so hooray for me! If I don't weigh every day I wor... Read more

I'm up two pounds. The conference was a real test for me and while I didn't do as bad as I feared I still gained weight. I only had one cookie, so good for me! And I didn't eat any of the chocolates sitting in front of me. It was hard to con... Read more
