Logical health analysis
So this is my first blog entry in 5 months...I just re-read my last one and interestingly enough it's about the same thing that this one is going to be about: a small weight gain, 1 lb this time. But the point is that this time I'm trying NOT t... Read more
Well, GAINED two pounds this week...guess my body wasn't over that tantrum yet and I can't judge when I've eaten too much...I miss being so in tune with what my body needs! I am going to start tracking my food again, and I'll keep it going thro... Read more
Happy New Year with a positive attitude!
Ha, just read my last blog entry (from the summer). I'm getting over that "little kid's tantrum" yet again. You think you're done with crazy overeating and can sense when you're full, but that balance can so quickly slip away! I'm not freakin... Read more
pleased with 1lb weightloss
It's been a rough week trying to get more "hardcore" back on track. I'm always trying to make the right choices, but it's only in the past few days that I started using my nutrition tracker again, and before I did that I know I had some out-of-... Read more
Had an incredibly enjoyable vacation AND lost weight?
Yes, it appears to be true! Unless this is just some trick like "oh, that's airplane weight-loss" (does that exist?). Anyway, even if I'd just stayed at the same weight I would have been happy, but now I'm really excited! And I wasn't trackin... Read more
Relief! at a weight-loss
So great to be 3 lbs down after a month of slow gains! Also, I am only 1 lb above my lowest weight on this weight-loss journey, so I'm pretty happy about it. I'm going on vacation a week from today, and I will quite possibly be in a bathing su... Read more
Not an idiot...
I'm not stupid, I just need to stop eating so much, and then I'll stop seeing the scale go up. Hummph. Also, I think I will give up alcohol for this coming week, at least to get myself back on track. Not that I've been drinking like crazy, bu... Read more
Just shared my food tracker!
Yikes! I never thought I'd want to do that, but I'm hoping that maybe it will help me get back to being more consistently in my ranges. Lately, once I go over my calorie range for the day, my brain is like "that's it! we can eat whatever we wa... Read more
Up again a little bit
Well, I gained another 1/2 lb, and initially I was disappointed, but upon a little reflection, I don't feel so bad. First, I want to say thanks for the supportive comments on my last blog entry! I'm going to continue to write as honestly as I ... Read more
Up 2.5 lbs
I was expecting it. I could just feel it, and I haven't been tracking much, so that's how it goes. Anyway, I think this might motivate me to get back into a better routine. I'm also really determined to eat well while visiting with family thi... Read more
In yoga, they always talk about "observing" your thoughts and your body and just being aware of your emotions and your current state of being. I think that I've started to do this to some extent. I can't believe how unaware I used to be. I re... Read more
Alcohol and Sodium
I had 6 beers last night, I think, ranging from can size to pint size (which despite its common usage does not mean small!). Anyway, I woke up feeling full of beer and headache-y (surprise, surprise). I also craved food with SALT. I made eggs... Read more
Maybe I need to be less comfortable
I weighed in today, and I lost/gained 0 lbs. That's good, bad, and not totally unexpected news. I ate out a lot this week at places where it was not really possible for me to count the calories. I think I did pretty well at not eating until I... Read more
Maybe a little emotional eating
I ate a few extra after-dinner snacks tonight, and I think it's because I got a little stressed out by a phone call. The call made me worried about money, family, and decisions that have to be made. Luckily I think I've stopped myself at about... Read more
Back to Nature Fudge Mint Cookies
...are something I can never buy again. They're so delicious, and healthier than a lot of other cookies out there (no high fructose corn syrup, no hydrogenated oils, and only 150 calories for 4 cookies). The only problem is that I can't stop e... Read more
