yikes and stuff
Tuesday, August 14, 2012      1 comments

The yikes is about not having done a bloggy posting in 12 days. It's definitely due to the not having internet at home thing, but that not a particularly valid excuse when considering I've made it to the library or coffee shop, and have managed ... Read more
back to the primitive
Thursday, August 02, 2012      5 comments

The word primitive is used relatively here, since I'm referring to typing on a blog on a phone, which if you think about it, is pretty freakin' sweet. Then again, an Android interface that is buggy, and a propensity for eaten posts causes this t... Read more
Moving is good for losing weight?
Monday, July 30, 2012      3 comments

And no, I'm not talking about moving in terms of getting up and exercising, although come to think of it, that might work, too. If only there were a web site dedicated to motivating us to do so... I speak of the act of packing up all your ... Read more
Does spending more time on this site actually alter habits?
Saturday, July 28, 2012      5 comments

Started the month a certain number of spark points away from the next level (5500 pts) and thought, I want get there. So I did. Meant reading a few more articles, taking a few more quizzes, not too much extra time, but a bit. And now I'm curious... Read more
Monday wasn't all that bad, I must say
Tuesday, July 24, 2012      3 comments

I began the week at the dentist's office, going in for a cleaning and emerging with a filling. First cavity since, as far as I can recall, the 80s. So I walked around half the day (4-5 hours, anyway) with half my jaw numb, thinking, hey, I could... Read more
Went for a 3 AM
Sunday, July 22, 2012      8 comments

Not a huge walk, just a quick 10 minute jaunt, headed into the park a bit, listened to the frogs and other night time creatures sing their songs. It was dark, other than the brightly lit oasis in the middle, so the stars were shining, but I'd st... Read more

Never did manage to scribble down relevant numbers at the start of this trip, other than that big scarlet numeral of the weight. Was thinking the other day that I was curious about the size of this and that portion of my anatomy, so when I found... Read more
one little victory
Wednesday, July 18, 2012      4 comments

The scale was kind this morning, showing a number not too far away from where I was at the end of April, when dreams of reaching the goal weight swirled betwixt the tendrils of thought roaming my brainspace. Didn't really help matters much by go... Read more
Got my car back, two days early
Monday, July 16, 2012      2 comments

Someone canceled an appt at the dealership, and they snuck my vehicle into the slot. So I walk the couple of miles out there, in 98 degree heat, arrive soaked through with sweat and rescued my steed. The tests they did made it seem like it was a... Read more
The end of Fitchburg days
Sunday, July 15, 2012      1 comments

As mentioned, moving soon from the current apt. in Fitchburg, over to the east side of Madison. I'll miss living across from McKee Farms Park, which until this spring would have been more of a generic statement than a real one. But I've actually... Read more
Well, I was going to go to Milwaukee
Saturday, July 14, 2012      2 comments

But I was low on gas, and so I stopped at Speedway, after passing by the BP station I usually stop at, after passing by the Mobil station that I stop at if I don't choose the BP. And I fill up at the Speedway, which I've only done once or twice ... Read more
Flipping the mental coin
Thursday, July 12, 2012      6 comments

How likely am I to fit in those size 34 waist jeans at any point soon? Is there any hope of ever using the 33 waist dress pants for myself again? It's the pre-preparation process for moving that has me pondering these precious proposition, ... Read more
Feels like being on a treadmill sometimes
Tuesday, July 10, 2012      2 comments

Not in a particularly good place regarding the weight loss journey, the alternate view of the past two months' weight change has taken hold of me, and I can't shake that perception, despite your (much appreciated!) efforts. And taking my mind of... Read more
It's all in how you look at it
Tuesday, July 03, 2012      3 comments

Or, an entirely different theory of relativity. You know how I mentioned being okay with losing in June about half the weight I put on in May? Today, a different interpretation struck me, that in the past 4 months, I've managed to shed just a si... Read more
July already? Geez...
Sunday, July 01, 2012      2 comments

The initial goal was to get down to 180 lbs, and at the end of April, it was within reach, 5 lbs away. May was rough, a +7 pound month, with some known and somewhat expected causes. June for the most part was positive, about 4 lbs down, leaving ... Read more
