Before I head to work:
I am up another pound! Not great, but the carb reload day was a huge one. I'm up a total of 3.5lbs from Saturday morning, basically all the weight I lost last week. Yesterday I didn't eat a lot, and stayed completely ... Read more
The day after carb reload...
Well, I promised an update, so here it is!
On Saturday I did eat primal, but I overate and had some alcohol in the evening so I was up a half pound on Sunday--Carb Reload Day. I started the day with leftover steak and homemade bread toast ... Read more
Looks like the short-term ELC is working!
Down 13.6lbs as of today!
ELC is a short-term diet--some studies point to protein being hard on one's liver. Plus, I'm not really getting veggies (that plateau was a tough one to break!). Today I'm adding in some grapes (I've missed grapes... Read more
Broke through! And three weeks primal!
Only 7.4lbs to go to my first goal! AND I'm finally below my plateau weight. I am still following the ELC plan for the rest of this week, and then on Saturday (or Sunday--depends on when our party happens) I'm going to have a "no diet day" to te... Read more
I had an ELC (extremely low carb) day yesterday. Only about 5g. Trying to do that today, too. My weight has been hovering up and down about 2lbs for over a week and I am ready to break through the plateau! So I'm trying this. So far it is workin... Read more
Yeah, I thought I'd broken through my plateau yesterday. I was back down to my 'pre-plateau' weight and had great plans to come home after work and eat a healthy early dinner and go for a hike. Then I ended up working 10 hours and had to take a ... Read more
What's working...and what REALLY doesn't!
Well, today is the 2 week mark--and I didn't even realize it, haha. I'm not trying to count days or anything this time, because I think I get discouraged when I look at the amount of time it takes to lose!
That being said, I am down 11lbs! ... Read more
A bit of a ramble...
I have finally noticed that almost every time I have lost a significant amount of weight, I don't gain it all back. I might gain most, but I always end up about 10lbs less than when I started. This means that my current "high weight" and the wei... Read more
I have gained back almost all the weight I lost over the last few weeks. I gained 2.2lbs since yesterday morning. I've had a couple binges involving pizza and my inability to eat a regular portion.
So, yeah...I haven't been tracking well th... Read more
Back and on track
My nephew is doing MUCH better--he should be able to leave the hospital this week!
I was on track all weekend on our trip--I totally indulged, but I didn't stuff myself and ended up not gaining at all. I probably would have lost if it wasn'... Read more
I'm going AWOL for the weekend
My sister's baby is in the NICU right now, and I am really worried about him. Work is very stressful and I was let down by a colleague on a project at *almost* the final hour (and while my sister was in the hospital about to give birth--I had a ... Read more
Makeup and feeling good about appearance
I'm sure that a lot of you do this too: when I am heavier or gaining weight, I stop wearing makeup, I stop dressing as fancily, and I stop feeling as attractive. Once I start losing weight for more that a couple days I start wearing makeup again... Read more
Down a whole pound from yesterday! And I mowed the lawn (with a push mower) for the first time since moving here :) If I do that every week I will have totally awesome arms!
I got a little frustrated when I realized that I still have 22 mor... Read more
Why I weigh everyday
This is not meant to be a snarky rebuttal, but an explanation. I also want you to know that I appreciate every comment I receive, and I don't want my spark peeps to stop offering suggestions! With that in mind, here's my explanation:
I weig... Read more
Okay, no complaints in this one :)
Dianitah's comment yesterday, combined with what my husband has been saying, made me realize that I have a lot of "highs" to be proud of, and that obsessing about the "lows" is just discouraging me and making me more prone to overeating.
Today... Read more
