First 5 gone!
My scale finally went under 240 this week!
It's taking less time this time around to get acclimated to eating healthier and making sure there are vegetables and fruits in every day.
So far, I've only changed my food, not my exercise.... Read more
Treat, not Cheat
I know I've blogged about this last time around, but I think it's important to understand.
I've seen many diet plans laid out that give you a "cheat" day.
In my mind, to cheat on something means you're setting yourself up for failure i... Read more
It's easier when you see smaller goals pass
To go with yesterday's blog...
It may look like a long time down the road to hit that final goal, but if you see that you are passing milestones, it may make it easier on you.
I have a set of mini-goals set up on my spark page to go wi... Read more
85 pounds is a daunting task
This time around I have 85 pounds to lose, or at least I did when I started 3 weeks ago.
Dread and crabbiness are some of the things that are felt when you need to lose weight. Depression keeps on lingering.
When you look at that numb... Read more
3.6 pounds down, only 81.4 to go! With a picture.
Last time I managed to lose the weight, I took photos of my loss. This time I'm going to do that too, but in closeups. I realized I never got to see how different my face looked well during the last big loss, so I'm taking close ups.
Don't... Read more
Slowly, very slowly...
Last time I tried to lose weight, I did it well and it went fast. I was losing almost 2 pounds a week!
This time, I'm starting out fatter, and older.
It's 5 years later. I lost the weight in about a year the first time. It stayed off f... Read more
Your weight doesn't define your happiness
I admit that I may get frustrated that the weight isn't dropping fast enough sometimes. I know I've seen others post things about getting upset at the scale.
The thing is that when I'm not happy, I just can't focus on being a good weight. ... Read more
The scale is weird
Or maybe it's just my body that's weird.
It's weigh in day today. I got on the scale right away and it said I was up from what it's been saying most of the week, so I would have only lost half a pound according to the first step on the scal... Read more
I shared a cup of cake
My husband went out to pick up some groceries yesterday and he came home with cake among the fruits and vegetables.
This is a good way to cake though. They are microwaveable cakes that you put in a coffee mug. They are still 300 calories, b... Read more
Quality over Quantity
In the realm of food choices, there are a lot of convenient quick grab things. There are also a lot of bland, tasteless things.
I find that many of the things I make from scratch tend to taste a lot better, and I don't feel the need to keep... Read more
It only works if you're honest with yourself.
This site is just a tracker. It's one tool among many. It does not lie to you, it does not care if you did well or failed miserably. It just tells you what you did, if you're honest with it.
Say you had "just a spoonful" of something, or "j... Read more
Sweet tooth challenge, day 6 and oficial weigh in day.
Despite all the salt I ate yesterday, I am still down nearly 2 pounds from initial weigh in! Logging works for me. It keeps me right in that spot for my body to be at the right weight.
Today we went for a walk. It was a slow one, but we got... Read more
Sweet tooth challenge day 5 and eating out
Tomorrow is my official weigh in day, and it's looking grim, mostly because my sodium intake was so high today it will probably take a couple of days to flush it out of my system.
I had an appointment this morning, which meant a long drive,... Read more
Sweet tooth challenge day 4, and flavor musings
The challenge says to have someone help you. I outright told my husband to stop bringing home fast food and candy. We even play argued over that when he called me from the grocery store yesterday. He is my biggest supporter and won't bring home ... Read more

Sweet Tooth Challenge, Day 3, again...
Well, stress is fun...
It either makes me not hungry at all or want to eat everything. Some days it makes me not hungry until I'm starving. Yesterday was one of them. I would have loved to eat more. I probably should have made some popcorn.... Read more
