So, been working but not blogging. I actually lost some weight--6.4 since starting WW. Not spectacular, but at least it is downward. We travel a lot, eat out on weekends with friends--it's no excuse, but it is fact.
Still working, and t... Read more
A new day
Well, it's been a long time since I posted. Still trying to find the key, yes, but I remembered that once in the past when I was doing WW, I tried to reduce carbs--the whites and heavies--and had some success. To that end, I have tried this ov... Read more

Feed a cold? or starve a cold?
Trying to fend off the nansy cold my husband has. Last night he was out of town and I was exhausted. Didn't have to fix dinner, so I didn't...and that's where the trouble started. Had some leftovers, some crackers, some ice cream...all things I ... Read more
Disappointed, but slogging ahead
So, another wimpy 1/2 pound loss at WW this week. Erghh! I see all these posts "I lost 5 lbs week one!", etc. and I've lost a big 1-1/2 lbs in 4 weeks. Something has got to give, so I guess it will have to be my attitude. At least it is a d... Read more
Moving along nicely
Since I found Skinnytaste.com, I've been trying new recipes and staying within my WW points. I planned out a menu for the week and have been trying to stay right on target. So far, so good. Lost 1/2 pound this week...plan to do better next Sa... Read more
Goal for January...and beyond
We were asked in our WW meeting last week (Dec 31), to pick just one thing that we will focus on in January to make January a success. Well, I didn't give it a lot of thought. Here I am again at WW (started up again on Dec 17). I picked Dec17... Read more
Rude awakening...reality shock

1) How much did you weigh at 18? 125
2) How much did you weigh at onse... Read more
one step ahead, 1/2 step back
So, despite the excesses of the holiday week, I managed to gain only a 1/2 lb which means I am still 1/2 less than when I started WW 2 weeks ago. That's a positive. My kids are slowly filtering back to their homes, one tomorrow, one Thursday,... Read more
Hope it continues--I'm working on it.
Successes: avoided treats at work past 2 days; exercised 2 days in a row
Weaknesses: Hunger!, planning, grocery shopping, accurate journaling
OK--off to cook dinner. It's hard, but it's worki... Read more
Hard work, waiting for payoff
See that double chin? It's going--yes it is. I am hungry. Trying to stick to regular, real, unprocessed foods. Needless to say, it is hard to just eat something without excess planning, and hard to plan when I am swamped with work, both at h... Read more
Concentrating on success during the holiday
Well, I haven't had much success keeping track by myself...so I joined Weight Watchers--again--on Saturday. I had planned to do it as a birthday present to myself, but between my big day on Dec 4 and Saturday, I could not fit it in. I quit bef... Read more
