100 calories too many

Monday, September 14, 2009

So this morning I went back over my calorie tracking . On the plus side I am pretty consistent, and have become pretty self regulating so I come pretty close to my target every day. I also discovered that on many days I come in about 100 calories over my target. This would pretty much explain the 1/2 pound a week weight loss. So I need to either work those hundred calories off, or quit eating them. Probably a combination of both.

I'm pretty pleased that I can now eat responsibly. I can even adjust pretty well for the days I have alcohol or other treats. That feels really good. Now I just need to work a bit harder I guess. Where, oh where, is the time?!

    Doesn't it stink that 100 tiny calories can make such a difference. Do something easy...find out how many jumping jacks burn 100 calories...LOL

Another half pound

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Wheee, another half pound gone, making 22 pounds on the way to shedding 40. Boy this is slow. But it is so awesome to look at the scale and see the number go down. My pants told me first though. Sometimes the scale is such a liar!

On vacation until the 21rst. Feels good to have the days at home stretching in front of me. No hurry up and relax and have fun on the weekend, because there is a whole 'nother week in front of me. emoticon

    You are right there. They say the fat goes to muscle and it weighs more so this accounts for the difference plus getting toned trims you. But there is not weight change, hard to be patient is it not? emoticon

Finally one pound gone

Saturday, August 29, 2009

This week I finally lost a pound! Mind you, I had to walk nearly 5 miles nearly every night since last Saturday to do it, but I did it. Surely there must be an easier way?! I'm not saying I'm not willing to work for it, or that I don't expect to work for it, but good grief, I need a life too!

The first 20 pounds really came off so easily compared to what I'm experiencing now. It is so hard not to be frustrated but I will keep working...and working...and working....


Messy house and home made pesto

Sunday, August 23, 2009

Yesterday I spent 6 hours working on getting my messy house in order. Then a friend and I walked between 6-7 miles. That was the longest walk I've had in a while and boy did I come home knackered. But it felt good and the day was gorgeous and the perfect temperature for it. We followed the waterway and watched all the boats. Slept the sleep of the dead! Today DH comes home; he has been away all week at his yearly men's shindig. I want the house to look better for him when he comes home, so back to work for a few more hours! Our basil plant was getting bushy so I just made a double batch of pesto. It is so good when you make it yourself! Tonight I will make pizza and top it with pesto and onions and mushrooms and asparagus and a bit of mozz. Mmmm. Welcome home DH.


I'm still here!

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

Well here I am sitting at the half way mark. Twenty wonderful pounds down, and another 20 pounds left to lose. I am so pleased with what I have accomplished. I like what I see and I feel good about me. But then there is the other 20...I've been maintaining the 20 pound loss since about February. It wasn't on purpose...we've just been so darn busy. I'm glad I have maintained it, and without much effort. That is a good thing. Just some exercise and mindful eating instead of mindless eating. But now I need to get going on the plan again and boy is it hard! Poor DH found he has put 10 of his 20 back on. I KNOW WE CAN DO THIS!!!

Meantime I have decided my brain needs more stimulation so I am learning German. Guten Tag!

    Good on you! (Don't know how to say that in German) My journey has been the mirror of that of your DH... but I agree: we can do this!
