Inching along

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I've begun tracking my actual waist size - it's 42 inches. My pant size is still probably around 38 but is inching closer to 36. I'm gonna buy a pair of size 36 jeans soon to celebrate!

Weight loss is now up to six pounds. Next marker there will be 10, or 224. You'll find the 5 lb achievement marker on my page.

Gay bowling is fun. Today will mark my third week. Last week I improved my average 10 points - up to 95. Everyone there is better than me, but it's about fun. I'm watching calories while I bowl. We're not in the habit of constantly munching, which helps!

    You are doing fabulous! Great job on the weight loss. I do a lot of walking and recently realized that I'd dropped a full inch on both my hips and waist just from the walking. Always good to drop inches too. emoticon

I've reached the 5 lb mark!

Sunday, January 05, 2014

I'm now weighing in at 229, the first of many mini-milestones and psychological markers in my weight loss journey - except I'm hesitant to use the word "journey" because half of you are so damn literal you'll ask me what town I'm going to! (Speaking of which, "foggy day in London town" is just an old expression - I was going to Olympia, Washington from Portland, Oregon.). ;-) Next stop is 10 lbs.

I've begun measuring my waist and am reeling from the difference between pant waist sizes and real life. I had no idea there was a three or more inch "vanity" difference the two!

4 pounds lighter

Saturday, December 28, 2013

So far so good. One pound per week. I seem to have already lost some around the waist, but at this point I could be just imagining it! I certainly feel better. I continue to make good nutritional and exercise choices. The walking really seems to be working!

    Be sure to use a tape measure !! Many times you lose inches and not weight. It helps to track all that info.

Sounds like you are doing a great job even through the holidays ! Keep up the good work.

And saying no to a Dove bar for dessert and cake at the Lacey train station(?). I treated myself to a one candy treat today and decided that was ample. :-) train leaves in five minutes.

I'll tumble for ya!

Thursday, December 19, 2013

Played Clue, charades, sang carols, went out to the Olive Garden, opened gifts. I've been making making sensible food decisions this whole visit - even at the restaurant. My sister bought me mixed fresh fruit to snack on - an unexpected treat!


I found out last night via Facebook that I won a tumbler set much like this one at our holiday drawing at work! They'll be giving away prizes through next Tuesday.


My sister and I are about to see "Anchorman 2". She loves the 70s and Will Ferrell, so this should be a hit! My train back to Portland leaves tonight at 6:50. Apologies in advance if these pics are at odd angles.

    Anchorman 2 was fun - a must-see for far Will Ferrell and Steve Carrell fans!

    So how did you like Anchorman 2? I've heard it is very good. Hoping to see it myself during Christmas break next week.
