Weight Loss After 40 Requires a Different Approach

Sunday, September 27, 2015      3 comments

The equation used to be so simple. Weight Loss = Exercise + Dedication - Calories. I've been doing that for years now. It no longer works. I can log food until the cows come home. And that alone is a time consuming process. I can work out... Read more

Picking myself up - AGAIN

Monday, September 07, 2015      2 comments

This is getting so tiring, but giving up is not an option. I just reviewed my blog here over the past 3 years. I've come a long way, mentally, psychologically and physically. But I'm still embarrassed over how I look. I hate my stomach with... Read more

It's Not a Race

Sunday, August 23, 2015      1 comments

For the past 18 months, I have lived under the weight of some school deadline or another. I needed to complete the last requirements for my application to grad school. These included the specified higher level undergrad classes; Intermediate Mic... Read more

Hit a Roadblock - No, Not Fitness

Tuesday, August 04, 2015      0 comments

This is in optimization problems. I have to make up my final from the summer class. I hit a wall sometime before the midterm. I just discovered what that wall was. It was in the discussions of the various economic functions. I was lost in class.... Read more

Unfortunately...IT'S ON

Saturday, August 01, 2015      1 comments

My mediocre quantitative score on the GREs did not disqualify me from application this semester. That leaves only to complete the class. Tamara returns on Monday. I need to step up my game. This will mean having to keep the pedal to the me... Read more

Determined, Dedicated, Disciplined

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      1 comments

What a mess this past year has been. I've been under terrible strain with school and my personal life. I haven't had a break from exams for well over a year. I need to get my life back. I was doing great with running. I was able to drop 4-5... Read more

Back and Swinging

Thursday, October 30, 2014      1 comments

Last summer was a whirlwind of activity, but it was nothing compared to what this autumn is turning out to be. I hit an important milestone in July - getting to below 135 (even briefly below 130), but then I got a chemical peel procedure at the... Read more

Eyes OFF the scale

Sunday, June 22, 2014      0 comments

I do a semi weekly weigh-in. Sometimes I weigh myself more than once a week. Sometimes I'll go nearly two weeks without a weigh-in. More times than not, however, I find myself disappointed that I have not yet moved from the weight I reached i... Read more

Grinding to Glacial Speed

Saturday, June 21, 2014      0 comments

Following my surgery on April 10, I had a 3 week long recovery and was stopped from exercise for 6 weeks. That was murder on my energy level and overall well-being. It was great to realize that going without exercise was making me feel so bad... Read more

A Year's Progress (Almost)

Saturday, April 05, 2014      1 comments

On April 29, 2013, I began a regime of interval jogging. With an iPhone app called "C25K", I took on the challenge of increasing my jogging speed and endurance with the diverted goal of keeping it at intervals instead of training for a 5K. Tho... Read more

Shifting Focus Again

Sunday, March 23, 2014      0 comments

My weight loss has stalled at this point. Two weeks ago, I hit a goal of being under 139 lbs. Then, after my son wanted to switch our Weds night dinner venues to a local Chinese restaurant, my weight jumped back up about 4-5 lbs and stayed the... Read more

The Most Important Factor in Weight Loss

Friday, March 07, 2014      1 comments

Last May, I made a commitment to myself that I would allow for a YEAR to pass for weight loss. I told myself that I needed to set small fitness goals and be content with body shape changes, if any, instead of focusing on the scale. I wa... Read more

I have a separate blog about this, but about 40-ish days ago, I started a 100 day challenge. And what a CHALLENGE it's been. There were 5 short term goals stated in the challenge that I was to take on every day. 1) Meditate 2) Do creati... Read more

More Pieces to the Puzzle

Sunday, December 01, 2013      0 comments

My weight has still not moved. It's disheartening to see the same weight range appear again and again for 6 years of trying. My low carb diet needs some tweaking, and I've researched common pitfalls to the diet and have resolved to fix the... Read more

Inching My Way There

Sunday, September 29, 2013      1 comments

For six torturous years, I have tried to lose the extra 15 pounds I gained in pregnancy. I've blogged in two of those years here and journaled through the other 4 in other locations around the internet. My biggest challenge was the unrelen... Read more
