Sun, 7 Jan 2018 08:52:30 EST Back on Track Today's weight revealed that I had lost that 1.5 lb plus .3 more. Good. Stay off! Thu, 20 Apr 2017 08:38:37 EST Easter, Oi! Easter holiday sucked. Not only did we hardly have any company because kids are off doing other things, I had consumed too many calories and gained 1 1/2 lbs after losing 2 during the week before. I'm going to try awful hard today to stick to my calorie limit and keep on exercising. Those lbs will come off again, I guarantee. Tue, 18 Apr 2017 11:26:07 EST Class Today The day was the usual with running to town, doing my Avon business, choosing something that fits my diet plan at the restaurant. Today I picked a taco salad with the taco meat on the side, no sour cream but yes to the Salsa. I had blue cheese dressing on the side too and only took out a tablespoon for the salad.Ate the salad part and left the tortilla bowl. Of the taco meat I put at least 1 oz on. The rest went into a to go carton for home. <BR> <BR> Anyway, class tonight which always starts... Tue, 4 Apr 2017 21:34:28 EST Monday It's a blah day here today. It's raining outside. Today I have to go to Eau Claire for a appointment to see a dermatologist. I have this cyst on my neck that my parents want me to get checked out. I'm not concerned, but since we recently lost a sister-in-law to cancer, they don't want me taking any chances. I should get it taken care of anyway since once in a while it builds up and gets infected. <BR> <BR> After that I think I'm going to the book store to get the Mayo Clinic Diet book. All ... Mon, 3 Apr 2017 10:50:00 EST Trying something new 2 weeks ago I started a new diet plan called the Mayo Clinic Diet. I'm going to class on Tuesday nights for 10 weeks to learn more about trying to lose weight and the proper way to eat. So far it's working. The first week the weight came off fast with 11 lbs lost. This week not so fast with 3 lbs so far and I hope a couple more by Tuesday. I realized that I have to up the game and work out more or be more active. The weather is getting warmer here in WI now so I'll be outside more often than ... Sun, 2 Apr 2017 10:25:11 EST It's Been A While I haven't been in here lately but since last week I've been logging on at least to count my calories. I weighed myself on that starting day and realized that in the 159 days since I last weighed myself, I had gained 5 lbs. That isn't bad but it's going in the wrong direction. Since then I've lost 4 lbs and I am trying to get more exercise and count the food that goes in my mouth. It's going to be hard as it is the month of Christmas and New Year's Eve. How to enjoy it w/o gaining the weight..... Tue, 13 Dec 2016 14:06:52 EST
