I was last successful at weight loss in 2008-2009. That was when I joined Sparkpeople. The lowest weight I recorded back then was 141 down from about 162. (My Mom insists I made it into the 130's but I can't be sure.) Right now I am at 142.4 dow... Read more

Winter running: Temperature was -12C/10f. Went anyway!

Monday, January 04, 2016      2 comments

I needed some exercise to deal with a bout of crippling depression. The temperature was -12C/10f. (-20C/-4f with wind chill) so I thought, "I can't go running in this weather. I am fighting off a cold." Therefore I got ready for a mid day swim. ... Read more

Down to 150 lbs goal but reward postponed to 145 lbs due to finances

Friday, November 20, 2015      2 comments

I reached 150 pounds a couple of times. I was even 149 one day this week. I'm not going to buy the black pencil skirt just yet because I am super broke. It seems getting divorced is expensive. For my last date I also had to buy new ahem...u... Read more

Big drop this month of 4.6 pounds, dating stress

Friday, October 30, 2015      4 comments

The secret to my "success": Not very healthy at all. I have been skipping meals on multiple days in a row. I have still been keeping up with my exercising. The reason for this madness: I am dating again after 23 years. I have to contemplate... Read more

Day 275 - Alcohol was a big calorie problem for me

Wednesday, July 22, 2015      1 comments

Each time I had regained a lot of weight alcohol was one of my "food" problems. I am a bit of a rebel and alcohol allowed me to feel like I was doing a fun thing at the end of a boring week. So, I always need to find other fun, social and ... Read more

I am currently 166 down from a high of 195. When I was hanging around 190-195 my period started coming more frequently. I swear once it came only 15 days apart. I hear this does happen with a higher body fat percentage. Well, this last cycl... Read more

Last year I had gained all my weight back again and more. In May 2014 I was 195 pounds. I had to speak at a convention and at a formal function so you can imagine I was not happy with all the photos taken. Since last October I have been working ... Read more

Yay, it feels like it has been a long time since I earned a board game reward. I was starting to lose hope in the reward process. I * just squeaked * in one more pound down this morning. I suspect it is partially due to dehydration from a ... Read more

Interesting talk about body image issues stemming from child beauty pageants

Friday, September 20, 2013      0 comments

I listened to this talk in the car last night and found it fascinating. I have no experience of child beauty pageants at all so it was a foreign world to me. I don't even have cable so I have never seen the "toddlers and tiaras" show. Read more
