Who do you trust?
The scale at home (Madison) said 180.0 before I left. It's not real, I'm not declaring any goal met or anything of the sort, but it's close. The scale at the parent's house when I got home (Michigan) said 188, after a 8.5 hour, traffic scarred j... Read more
9 days' wonder
Again, just a comment on the (mind the) gap betwixt and between postings. The internet lack, and the phone dead spot does put a damper on things, including job search stuff. That's back on in relatively full swing again, after a break for malais... Read more
yikes and stuff
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
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?
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?
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
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 walk...at 3 AM
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
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
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
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
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
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
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
