Still going strong on the Dukan diet
I had a faltering few days where I wasn't sure Dukan was going to work for me after all, since the day I switched to Cruise my weight loss slowed way way down. I've lost only 4 pounds in 12 days of sticking to the plan pretty rigorously. Of cour... Read more
Doing the Dukan
Yawn. I get so tired of whining about my weight loss not working- I really need to focus on the 17 pounds I've lost in the last few months, and especially the 12 I've lost since starting the Dukan diet. I am just so impatient. I want to see a po... Read more
One step at a time...
I get so frustrated and then I just give up. Not pretty, but there it is. I was doing okay, and then realized that I was not dropping the weight like I felt I should be for as much work as I was putting into my workouts... so I quit. Not on purp... Read more
Back on track
Late July was the last time I blogged? Really?
Gee. Time does fly when you are sliding into bad habits and living in denial.
I spent the rest of the summer trying to convince myself that just because I wasn't "actually exercising and loggi... Read more
Progress is happening... I can finally feel it!
Well, after a month or more of frustration and adjustments and thinking I was really doing this to the best of my ability and discovering I was just sort of getting ready, I feel like I am finally moving down the path to fitness and weight loss ... Read more
Still no weight loss... :(
I don't know... part of it is probably my slowing down on exercise, but I just got so tired of working out 2 hours a day and nothing happening. I still go for big bike rides 3x a week, and lots of walks, but I've just sort of lost the will to do... Read more
Been working out at least as much as my fitness suggestions, and eating directly from the nutrition suggestions (with a few changes here and there, I admit) and have been really working at this thing. No progress with the scale... still says 151... Read more
And furthermore! :)
I worked out pretty well this week, I think. I had a migraine one day from too much sunshine, and another day was a rest day, and what's funny is I think I really benefited from the 2 days of sitting on my rear. When I did my EASA t... Read more
Okay, so I am still trying to get this all figured out. And I was reading some other member blogs and someone mentioned going to find a calorie-needs calculator. I found a few different ones, including a government chart, and they all say I need... Read more
Feel like I'm spinning my wheels...
It's been about a month now since I came back to SparkPeople, and about 2 weeks of really committed exercise and careful attention to what I am eating and how much water I am drinking... the first week I lost 5 pounds, and though I didn't really... Read more
Going in the right direction
I really feel like I am headed off in the right direction today... started the morning with a brisk 15 minute walk around the neighborhood, stuck to my nutrition plan and hit all my targets there except that somehow I was still under in my carbs... Read more
Okay, then... now I AM fat.
So this morning I finally went to put on some summer clothes, after a long, chilly, wet spring, and .... can't get into any of last year's clothes. Not in an adolescent sort of "these don't look nice, I don't like the way I look in these" way, b... Read more
Reality vs my head
Okay, so I was feeling really rotten about my weekend and what I ate, and then I went back and actually entered it in, going with the worst case scenario when I wasn't sure, and you know what? I was totally okay. I just have not gotten good at a... Read more
Monday after Easter weekend
The weekend was really hard for me- I have been doing really well with my calories and keeping fitness minutes up and exercising daily, and then Easter weekend and we had a family party to attend, which was fun, but it meant lunch in th... Read more
Oh, there's a blog here? :)
Okay, then. :)
It's Tuesday, I've been here on SparkPeople since April Fools' Day, so a week today, I guess. It's been a bit of a roller coaster so far. I started counting my calories and fitness minutes right away, and there were some big sur... Read more
