Holiday time and starting over
Tuesday, November 29, 2016      6 comments

Well I've looked at this blog and am so sorry to have to report I've let myself slip back. Currently 168.5 lbs. I was doing SO WELL so of course I sabotaged myself and gained over 10 lbs back. Weight I worked hard to lose. The thing that stin... Read more
the Before and the during....with PICS
Tuesday, June 14, 2016      4 comments

Well last time I blogged I did start with a picture of the “during” of my journey. It was a picture of me at approximately 165 pounds. What I did NOT and have NOT posted, was the “before” the “start” the really tough one to look at. It’s ... Read more

Tuesday, May 17, 2016      3 comments

First of all my sincerest apology to the runners out there. You know who you are - you pop in your ear buds and hit the open road or the treadmill! You relish the runner's high! You faithfully replace your sneakers! Thus does not describe my re... Read more

Holiday (ish) Weight Gain
Saturday, January 02, 2016      2 comments

What is it about holiday time that lends itself to weight gain? If I'm honest, I guess I've been gaining since about October. Such a bummer since I was so good in August and September. But then come November it was like oh well may as well ju... Read more
Own your feelings
Thursday, September 10, 2015      4 comments

We own our feelings - no one can make you feel anything you don't let them. This has been a rough few weeks for me. I started a new job and unfortunately my coworker doesn't seem very happy about it. He wasn't passed over for a promotion or ... Read more
Portion size smack-down - the ugly truth
Wednesday, September 09, 2015      6 comments

We all know that portion sizes have been getting larger over the years. How were people in the 50s able to eat red meat and noodle casseroles every night and white bread / cold cut sandwiches for lunch AND breakfast....and still be on average 2 ... Read more
Embrace the Plateau
Tuesday, September 08, 2015      7 comments

Ok Ok - before everyone starts after me with pitchforks and torches, let me explain. Plateaus are annoying. They're frustrating. They're maddening. But they're also a cause for great hope and excitement. Look at it this way, a plateau is you... Read more
I hate the turtle!!
Wednesday, September 02, 2015      8 comments

or the tortoise. Whatever. I don't WANT to hear slow and steady wins the race. After all these years, and all these attempts (sometimes successful!) at weight loss, one would think I would be used to this by now. But still somehow I am wantin... Read more

Not much to say….wait a sec, that doesn’t sound like me?
Thursday, August 06, 2015      3 comments

So I’m starting this blog admitting I don’t have much to say, although, since that sounds NOTHING like me (LOL) it will probably turn out to be a long one anyway. I’m down to 180.3. This is completely as a result of the soup cleanse I’m cu... Read more

Tuesday, August 04, 2015      3 comments

I have started Day 2 of the iBurn plan from the Dr. Oz show. Actually, it’s from a guest on his show, but I got the recipe for the soup off his website. Let me start over. Yesterday I wrote a blog about how I was back in the 190s and ... Read more
Back in the 190s, and the Biggest Loser redux
Monday, August 03, 2015      1 comments

Well, I’ve gotten back into the 190s. Not that I can say I am especially surprised, I’ve been eating and drinking with wild abandon for about a month now. I blamed stress; I am starting a new job in a week but for weeks I didn’t know if I ... Read more
July Goals? Why not!
Wednesday, July 01, 2015      1 comments

So I’ve been reading the member blogs as usual this morning - it’s been motivating as usual. I see that a bunch of you have set monthly goals, or talk about doing so. I looked down and realized it’s July 1st - so hey! Why don’t I set some July... Read more
