5k ain't no big thang
Friday, September 30, 2016      4 comments

Today I ran a 5k as one of my daily runs for the first time instead of my usual 3.5 or 4! Before this I have only ever run 5k or higher at a run event. I haven't had a great month (that's another post) but this was a nice little victor... Read more
Starting to think about new goals for maintainance
Thursday, August 04, 2016      2 comments

I am only 6 pounds from my original goal of 125 (today 131) so I need to start thinking about how to maintain a weight close to this for the long term. Well, it might take a while to lose that last 6 pounds. Then as I get comfortable with this ... Read more Fruits and vegetables are good for mood

My depression and OCD induced ADHD have been kicking my butt over the last two weeks partly because I haven't been able to exercise as much. In turn that was due to one operation and one injury. That led me to reading some psychology articl... Read more
Day 632: Body image rambling on the cusp of the 120's (narcissism alert)
Tuesday, July 12, 2016      6 comments

Warning: Rambling and nasty generalisations about attractiveness follow. I guess the big body image question is what do I want from my body? It's pretty ambitious. I want to look great in short shorts and a spaghetti strap tank top. I want ... Read more

Day 603: Finally bought a new LBD
Monday, June 13, 2016      4 comments

Way back in November I planned to buy a LBD from Modcloth when I reached 145 pounds. Now I have bought quite a few other nice clothes along the way but I never did get the planned dress. Today I happened to browse the site and they only had one ... Read more
Mini-Goal acheived (close enough)
Friday, May 20, 2016      2 comments

I had a mini-goal to get to 134 before May 22nd. Today I hit 134.6. I am going to let that count. It's in the 134 range. Close enough. After my almost 2 month plateau and one bad, bad week I had to work reaallly hard to get down here. I wan... Read more
And the plateau came back, the very next day

I had a blip or three all in a row. A family friend visited and took me out to an amazing Thai restaurant. I had a work convention at a resort where the food was incredible and the convention was always too busy for exercise. I drank more than a... Read more

A little plateau over
Saturday, April 23, 2016      1 comments

I just got over a 1 month plateau. I weigh myself every day to take the stress out of weigh ins. Once I reach goal I think I will switch to 3 times a week for maintenance. Anyway, I finally made another small drop to around 135 down from hoveri... Read more
A mini-goal and a new reward
Tuesday, March 15, 2016      6 comments

My birthday is May 22nd. I am going to do a mini-challenge for myself to get down to 134 by then. Why 134 and not 135? 134 is the number I need to hit to have a normal range BMI. This should be doable since I just had a surprise drop down to aro... Read more

Friday, March 04, 2016      6 comments

I made another milestone today by hitting 139.6. This is my first time below 140 since I don't know when so it should be a big celebration. I took all but 3 pieces of clothing out of my "too small" box. One of the pairs of pants had a $5.00 bill... Read more

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
