The slow climb out of the hole

Some months back, I was in a car accident. Whiplash left me in a lot of pain so that just getting up out of bed some days was too much to manage. As time has marched on, I've gotten better, but it's been slow. I had to heal. I had to go through ... Read more
The magical expanding waist!
Thursday, April 25, 2013      0 comments

Oh golly. I've gained a couple of inches around my waist since the last time I measured, which is somewhat disheartening. My weight didn't change, so I'm thinking I must have lost a lot of muscle mass and made up for it with fat. As frustra... Read more
Wasting Time!

I am absolutely awful about wasting my time on the computer. It's a kind of self-medication I do, when I'm feeling depressed or anxious. Even if nothing else is going right, I can play a game or read articles and sort of distance my head from my... Read more
Too much

I've been doing very well at moderating myself lately, but the birthday party was just too much for me. I ate more than I intended--way more--and came over my daily goal. However, my weekly average hasn't taken much of a hit from that and ... Read more

I believe it was someone on the Dope who suggested cutting a portion of soup in half and replacing the other half with vegetables. Since soup makes for an easy, quick lunch, I'm immensely grateful to whoever it was that came up with that one, be... Read more

My scale is apparently off by ten pounds. So, I actually am just nudged right over the line into overweight. More distressing than that, though, is my body fat percentage. The estimate I got this morning was 32.3%, which goes into the "obese" ca... Read more

I've never been much of a dieter. I was always underweight as a teenager and while my mother accused me of having an eating disorder because of how incredibly skinny I was, I actually ate more like a teenage boy than a body-conscious girl. Once ... Read more
