Photos? Scary!

Tuesday, July 28, 2015      2 comments

I've read some blogs that ask why we think some people do not post photos. I never posted a single photo until very recently and it is my profile photo. I found that I like seeing people's profile photos and decided to add my own. Today I'v... Read more

This is New...

Monday, July 27, 2015      4 comments

I've never had an active Friend on Sparkpeople. In all the years, in all the weight I've taken off and put on, never once did any post show up in my friend feed. This time I've taken the time to read blogs and find a few people who seem to reson... Read more

How did I do this to myself?

Sunday, July 26, 2015      3 comments

I step on the scale or look in the mirror and my primary thought is "how did I do this to myself?" I was at goal. I look at the pictures when I was there and I look so triumphant. So why on earth am I here. Again. Heavier than I was when I star... Read more

Travel is Difficult

Saturday, July 18, 2015      1 comments

I attended some long and intense training this week out of state. Food choices were a struggle. I made the best choices I could not knowing what was in anything. Lots and lots of salad. I am still disappointed with the scale upon my return home.... Read more

Is This Me?

Saturday, July 11, 2015      1 comments

When I got my new job in February I thought my energy would come back and I would return to doing the things I used to do. Things like go to museums and bike riding on the weekends. The stress from my previous job wore me into the ground. I... Read more

Not Alone

Wednesday, July 08, 2015      2 comments

I've been reading so many blogs. Watching vlogs. Paying attention. And you know what I've found? I'm not the only one. Not that I want anyone else to hit goal and then regain the weight. Not that I would wish a struggle on another. But it is com... Read more

When it gets even more humbling

Monday, July 06, 2015      0 comments

Well. Not only was I humbled but I am even more humbled if that's possible. 46 pounds up. Yes indeed. Which puts my net loss since I was at my highest at 36 pounds. I am not as comfortable or as happy. I've definitely been using food emotionally... Read more

Day 2 of Re-Do

Tuesday, May 12, 2015      0 comments

Made it thus far! Went out to lunch with a colleague and had a moment of panic when I was told the menu item I knew was on program was no longer carried. I saw a sign for a new salad which was also on program and ordered. Cheerfully ate it and f... Read more

Back on track

Stuck with program thus far today. Forced myself to get on that elliptical. Did not get as far as I wanted, but at least I started. Worked up quite the sweat!... Read more

Gorgeous Spring Day

Sunday, May 10, 2015      0 comments

We took the bicycles out and rode about 5 miles. This is the first time since 2013 we've ridden the bikes. Primarily due to my previous job and the exhaustion it left me with. It felt great. But now everything hurts! That just means I need to do... Read more

Here we are...

Wednesday, April 01, 2009      0 comments

Here we are, and I have stuck to my guns. I got up at a ridiculously early hour yesterday and got on the elliptical for 30 minutes. I went walking at lunch today in the cold. It looked bright and pretty, but by the time I finished I was bundled ... Read more

Windy Blustery Day

Monday, March 30, 2009      0 comments

I got up early to use those blasted weights, but I did it. Again. This time I added more crunches to sit ups and tried to do "core" exercises. That is what my girlfriend told me it means when you face the floor, rest your weight on your arms, an... Read more

Trudge trudge trudge...

Wednesday, March 25, 2009      2 comments

Let me assure you, working out with weights has not suddenly become sexy or motivating for me in the last week. But I still do it. I keep chanting to myself, "if I keep doing what I always did, I will keep getting what I always got." What I got ... Read more

Slow but Sure...

Thursday, March 19, 2009      0 comments

I did more weight training today. The weight continues to come off. I am not cheating with food at all. I distract myself with other things. Today I saved my celery sticks till later afternoon and that felt like a "big treat." HA HA!... Read more

Ow ow ow...

After some time away from exercise, I am back in the groove. I worked out with the hated weights yesterday. I had lost muscle mass. I could not do two sets, but I pushed hard. Boy howdy do I feel it today! OW OW OW! My arms hurt, my tummy hurts... Read more
