Biggest Loser Week 1
This is my first entry in a series which I plan to make during the BL season. The intent is to learn from each episode and weigh in every week before the BL.
What did I learn this week? First of all, I learned that I'm not pushing myself ... Read more
A bit of progress?
So I'm about 3 days in to my new, fresh start.
I'm feeling really good! One of the things that I'm working on is eating meals instead of snacking all day. Also, no more sampling at work! I'm trying to eliminate temptation: my husband went o... Read more
I'm back to my highest weight in 2 years: 174 pounds. 2 years ago, I got down to 154. Just 3 months ago, I weighed 165. I think working at the coffee shop isn't helping.
Okay, so here is the plan: back to South Beach, but NO cheating. I ha... Read more
Yes! I'm finally done with finals, woo hoo!
Definitely time to focus on ME. My goal is to get down to 145 by the time I go back to school, at the end of september - so 20 pounds.
What is amazing is that I've actually gotten my husband into... Read more
I'm feeling so great and it feels wonderful! I'm stepping on the scale and finally seeing a loss. South Beach is definitely my thing. I knew this, but avoided it. But here I am, almost done with phase 1 and I've lost 5 pounds! I'm not as hu... Read more
So I think this is my 4th day of my third attempt at SB in the last month or two.
Its kind of a good thing that I don't know exactly which day I'm on...it means I'm not quite obsessing or hating the process.
I have a brand-new scale: the off... Read more
I'm definitely finding that any form of carb is suddenly making me crave more.
I was doing fine all day until I had chilli for lunch - the carbs are in the beans, I guess. In any case, despite the fact that it was super filling, it made me fe... Read more
South Beach and Glucose
I'm doing well on South Beach. I haven't weighed myself since I started, because I had a 3-day fall-off-the-wagon bout after 3 days. I started over, so I'm on day 3 today and feeling great.
So I looked through my physiology book yesterday be... Read more
Phase 1, Day 6 or 1?
I've had two bad days in a row now. Darn it. Its those stupid left overs from my brother's graduation party. I knew I shouldn't have taken them home with me. They are supposed to be for my husband, but yeah right.
Shoot! I was almost at th... Read more
Phase 1, Day 4 and 5
So yesterday was day 4 for me on phase 1...my brother graduated from law school and there was a party. I knew of this ahead of time and knew what to expect. And yes, I did allow myself foods that were not part of phase 1. But I knew that this... Read more
Phase 1, Day 3
Again, a great day!
Today I got up, made breakfast (2 turkey sausage links and an egg)...had coffee...a serving of peanuts for a snack...chicken for lunch...a few slices of turkey lunch meat for a pick-me-up...woo hoo! Plus, the sugar cravi... Read more
Phase 1, Day 2 - hooray!
Yesterday was amazing! I feel so good about everything!
Yesterday I had a really good talk with my husband. He doesn't understand why I'm so threatened by other people, especially women. This includes the girls that I go to school with and ... Read more
SP Phase 1 - Day 1...again...
Okay, I did well yesterday, but broke down. We went to dinner at friends and it was tough! Plus, I hadn't eaten all day, which isn't really conducive to this process.
Anyway, I got up this morning, had coffee and an egg.
Lunch: steak salad... Read more
South Beach - Day 1, Phase 1
Its 10 am, so far I've managed to remember not to reach for my neighbor's wheat thin's or malt balls...
So far, so good, but I need to bring a mid-morning snack to school. I am STARVING right now, and that's not the way to do this...so I'll d... Read more
Okay, I'm back. I can't take this anymore! 4 days of splurging and all I can think about is salads and sparkpeople!
But things have to be different, this time: no more obsessing about everything I eat and how many minutes I work out.
I've ... Read more
