Moving Down Again
Thursday, February 01, 2018      1 comments

Well, the scale cooperated this morning and showed a result (about a pound and a half down in a week and a half) that has me breathing a sigh of relief. I don't need fast results, just results. A pound a week will suit me fine. Also, I'm ... Read more
Emotional Eating
Friday, January 19, 2018      2 comments

I'm a seriously emotional eater. Any emotion, you name it! Happiness (cake!), sadness (chips!), boredom (Oooooo... donuts!!!) Yes, boredom is an emotion and the donuts are singing their siren song to me right now. Our office gets donuts ... Read more

Hi anyone who's still following along :) I've not posted since September of 2015. Ugh. It's been a roller coaster. I've weighed as little as 144 and as much as 175 (like, yesterday :P ) since that time, pretty much due to how I handle... Read more
Progress!

The scale was most cooperative today and said I weigh either 159.8 or 159.2. I can't remember which but since it's on the right side of 160, I'll take it :) For the past while I've been having cottage cheese at breakfast, but I wanted a ch... Read more
Sigh.

Well, I'm back. And I'm at 162.2 as of this morning. This year has been exhausting for numerous reasons. There was a big family broo-ha-ha last fall, almost a year ago, which still has not shaken out. Thankfully it's not my nuclear famil... Read more
2014 Q2 Post
Monday, May 19, 2014      3 comments

Seems like I'm posting once a quarter at this point, LOL All is well :) I went through what I believe was a giant re-feed from mid-March through the beginning of May because after doing the Whle30 last year and being told about the 5:2 die... Read more
Present and Accounted For
Tuesday, January 28, 2014      4 comments

Only three months have passed since my last entry! Not bad, considering... LOL The good news is that this year's Holiday Food Fest was somewhat moderated when compared to that of 2012. I ended up 5 lbs. over what I was before Christmas, b... Read more
The Good and the Bad
Monday, October 21, 2013      2 comments

On the plus side, roasted chickpeas are GOOD :) On the minus side, the party got cancelled. Not only did it get cancelled, but after all my angst-ing about cake, I ended up buying one at Publix Friday afternoon. It was called an Apple Sta... Read more
Ahoy Mateys, There Be Rough Waters Ahead!
Thursday, October 17, 2013      5 comments

Yep, I'm totally having a flashback to International Talk like a Pirate Day. Thank you for all your comments re: the Holiday Eating Frenzy. It's good to know I'm not alone at least! But good grief it makes me insane. My husband and I hav... Read more
And Two Steps Back
Monday, October 14, 2013      3 comments

I am such a stereotype it kills me. I do really well for a week/ a month/ a quarter/ whatever, and then some massive dining event occurs (usually several clumped up together) and I feel as if I'm right back where I started, both psychologic... Read more
Still Progressing :)
Sunday, October 06, 2013      3 comments

So far so good, still. I had a cookie yesterday (tiny - 60 calories) that wasn't planned for and a bowl of frozen yogurt that was planned. I'm only obsessing about the cookie to any degree because I'm trying to eat just what I've planned right... Read more
Definitely Progress :)

I did well yesterday, hooray! I stuck with my plan even though the stupid Halloween candy that Those Who Sign My Paychecks crave was sitting out all day. It about killed me because I LOVE the Reese's pumpkins (love!!! Even though they're terr... Read more
How'd That Happen?
Thursday, October 03, 2013      9 comments

Well, while I didn't fly off the rails yesterday, I did deviate somewhat from my planned food intake. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't my best moment either. When it came time for my marvelous daily chocolate, I thought "Hmmm... you know,... Read more
Day 3 On the "Let's Not Get Crazy Here" Diet...
Wednesday, October 02, 2013      4 comments

Day 3 and all continues to go well. My meals stay pretty static on a weekly basis because I tend to do a big "cook-up" on the weekends for my work lunches, and for dinners I stick with fish because I can generally trust it to thaw by the time I... Read more
Success!
Tuesday, October 01, 2013      4 comments

Okay, one day down. I stuck with my plan, hooray! And I stuck with it in spite of my delightful husband saving me one of the last two Reese's Pumpkins. He really is good about not pushing, because when I say "no" he accepts it and moves o... Read more
