Finally left the fractions behind

Thursday, October 23, 2014

I've been coasting along with 1/4 pound losses, gains, for awhile now. Decided to get serious this past week and lost 2.25 at weigh-in today. Was top loser in my little weight loss group. Now to keep momentum going. It was not rocket science. Practiced portion control, raked a lot of leaves, and reduced the amount of evening eating. Felt good.

Another Quarter

Friday, October 17, 2014

Still squeaking by here, lost 1/4 at weigh-in yesterday. I remain active as I tackle the autumn outdoor chores, but apparently feel that the activity gives me license to eat more heartily. I am reminding myself that holidays will soon be upon us, and it would be nice to begin them with a little more positive momentum. So between now and next Thursday will track, move and pay a little more attention to those portion sizes and snacking frequency.

Squeaking becoming tiresome

Friday, September 12, 2014

Squeaking becoming tiresome could refer to the sinus infection I've been fighting for a couple of weeks. Major symptoms are managed, but never sure when I open my mouth the quality of voice that will emerge. Made for some humorous moments trying to conduct choir rehearsals yesterday. But mostly tired of weekly weigh-ins that reflect 1/4 pound loss or staying the same. (In my small weight loss group we refer to those results as "squeaky turtles.") Need a new motivation to get me moving more quickly toward my goal. Was reminded yesterday that there is a convention coming up in July of next year that I'm interested in attending. Wouldn't it be nice to enjoy it at goal weight, with appropriate goal weight attire? Something to get started on - Today!

    You just start "maintenance mode" a bit early. I hope you can find the right motivation - I've been having problems myself! At least you've got the right attitude!

Salty cure?

Thursday, September 04, 2014

I've been fighting allergies, sinus, whatever, for a few days now. Decided to pick up something to manage symptoms. Just grabbed one that promised relief from the symptoms that were irritating. Didn't feel like going to my weight loss group but stepped on scales just for a check. Weight up 3#. On my way past medicine box spotted "each tablet 476 mg of sodium". Since the doses involve 2 tablets every 4-5 hours, I had ingested tremendous amounts of sodium, no wonder scales were up. Lesson learned. Even have to check ingredient lists on OTC cold remedies. I have to admit that I'm feeling better, but the weight gain was quite a shock. Working to get it off by next Thursday.

Like the slogan that I saw on SP earlier today. Make one healthy choice. Then make another.

Squeaked by again

Thursday, August 28, 2014

My goal for today's weigh in was not to have gained weight during our vacation last week. Actually lost 1/4 pound over the 2-week period since last weigh-in, so was pleased. Now to set some goals for September and hopefully make that scale number a little lower.
