Yup, the low fat thing totally backfired. I kept it up for 2 weeks, saw a little progress, went back to work and gained twice as much as I lost. I need a diet that can flex with me, that is sustainable, that doesn't require me to track every bi... Read more
So much has happened since I posted last. It's been a busy year. I returned to work, eldest child started kindergarten, and I have even less time than ever. Since my son is now weaned, I can think about weight loss. I have tried dieting while... Read more
Its been 13 joyous years since I last weighed 200 lbs. The feeling of déjà vu is hitting me like the proverbial ton of bricks. The chub rub, the difficulty getting out of low chairs. Suddenly my rump has got the gravity and girth of a piece o... Read more
My blood pressure cuff arrived this week. I want to find out if there is any connection between how much refined carbs I eat and how much I snore and my blood pressure. My husband reports that I have been sleeping quietly. Another non-scale vi... Read more

I finally got on the scales and I was up nearly 4 kgs! That is my worst gain in... Read more
Nov 5th, morning. I had some mild cramping, some spotting and a brown discharge. I was late for work and I had a prenatal appointment that afternoon. I figured whatever it was, it could wait.
Had a sh*tty day at work.

A few weeks ago I was freaking out. Summer was coming to an brupt halt, I was returning to work and I was going to be having a new responsibility~ I would be babysitting my niece on Weds, Thurs and Friday afternoons. Additionally, every other We... Read more
Does anyone use the automatic meal planner? I was looking for a forum here that discussed it, but I struck out. I am on the heart healthy one and I usually use it to come up with how many carb and veggies, etc I should have in a meal, this week ... Read more
