Where does the weight go?
Okay, so I am a college educated woman, but I never thought about this before. Where does the weight go? How does it leave your body? How simple is that question?
The answer is that we excrete mostly through respiration and urine. That... Read more
Cinco de Mayo - Logging my food
We are going out with some friends for dinner tonight to take in some patio time at the local Mexican restaurant for dinner in celebration of Cinco de Mayo. It's one of those little mom and pop joints, so the quandary was how to calculate my ca... Read more
The hubby is a BAD influence
I'm doing pretty well, but not great. I keep allowing my husband to pull me off of the wagon, but luckily he will be heading out on a work trip again for a couple of days. I guess I can say that even though he is pulling me off the wagon, it i... Read more
So I ate over on my calories over the weekend - both days I might add. Do I feel guilty? Not really. I was busting my rump on redoing the upstairs. Moving furniture, cleaning out closets, etc. I put my activity in as 2 hours of heavy clean... Read more
I had some great opportunities for discussions with Grant last night about healthy choices.
On the way home from soccer he asked for an can of Arizona and I said no. He objected and pointed out that the half and half versions only have 150... Read more
Day 3 of back on track
I'm still kicking myself for allowing myself to gain the weight (plus more) that I had lost several years back. I have decided that the best thing to do is to log my food for the rest of my life; the good, the bad or the ugly.
On the plu... Read more
Long Time No See
I am back and I am still very fat. Surprise, surprise...
Anyway, I am trying to get one or two of my friends to buddy up with me for this adventure. I need someone else to be accountable to besides myself, and if we are keeping eachother ... Read more
I ate the M&Ms
So yesterday I had my food log filled out in preparation for what I was going to eat for the day. I was doing well, with just a little bit of modification to my original food entry, I ate a little beef that I hadn't originally logged. Not a bi... Read more
I'm trying to get back on track...
Life has been very busy lately. Things are starting to return to normal in my life, which is allowing me to gather my senses back and attempt to move in the right direction again. A month ago or so I was just trying to maintain my sanity and I... Read more
My horrible not so secret...my guilty admission
I hate my arms. I am tired of buying shirts that are two sizes too big just so my upper arms can fit. I have pillows for arms. I have seen people that are twice my size with smaller arms. I am not over-exaggerating, do not be fooled. I have... Read more
The found dog - part 2
Okay, so I have been gone for a couple of weeks. I have had some issues that I don't really care to discuss here, but I am back. It has not been the best couple of weeks, but I know that there are so many people out there that have had worse, ... Read more
I'm still here
I haven't blogged, or logged my food for several days. I was a little off of the wagon for 2 days (I did good for Easter - it was the 2 days that my kids were gone and DH and I were alone), but I am back. Yesterday I was very conscious of what... Read more
Another day...another crisis
Life is becoming such a roller coaster lately. Last night my MIL was in a car accident. She is okay, but we spent last night in the ER with her, waiting to hear anything. DH was so nervous and edgy. He was flashing back to when he was in HS ... Read more
I didn't make my goal last month
I really wanted to earn at least 1000 SparkPoints last month - as discussed in a previous post. But I didn't...I only earned 635. I really wasn't on the site as much as I wanted to be because of the various things going on around me (Gracie's ... Read more
I am on a chocolate hunt...
I have been tired and wanting to eat everything that I see. DUH, why could that be?!? I have only been a female for...let's see...all of my life! I have eaten a chocolate kiss, a 60 calorie Hershey stick and a chocolate chip cookie so far tod... Read more
