Met my first weight goal
Tuesday, May 30, 2017      3 comments

I met my first goal! Just 6 pounds left to go. Sugar cravings are much less severe - although still an issue when I get seriously stressed at work. Focusing on keeping stress level down. When cravings feel beyond my control, I will get up an... Read more

I don't know what to do

A week off work and was down 3 lbs. A week back at work and I was back up those 3 plus 1 more. I MUST figure out a way to stop the work stress, or at least deal with it in a different way. I wish I was one of those people that couldn't eat wh... Read more

It's only been two days of cutting out sweets and I'm already a mental case! Man that sugar is evil! I want it so bad and yet I know if I gave in and ate something I'd surely say it wasn't worth it afterwards. I've got to keep my eyes on the pr... Read more

I don't know why I can't get my act together. I spend two weeks taking some weight off, and less than a week putting the weight back on. I continue to workout every morning, but my eating is all over the board. I'm great on the weekends. I k... Read more

I simply cannot get away from logging my food. It is the ONLY way I stay accountable. I have gained 9 lbs. I know to some people that wouldn't sound like a lot, but we all know how 2 lbs becomes 5 lbs becomes 10 lbs, etc. My goal: Lo... Read more

Would I hang out with an enemy day after day? NO! So why do I continue to eat junk that I regret eating immediately afterwards, and what is it going to take for me to STOP??? Those are the million dollar questions. ... Read more
Getting back to basics
Sunday, January 19, 2014      0 comments

I've learned that I can't exercise away a bad diet, and sugar is a slippery slope. Unlike previous years, I am not going to vow never to eat sweets again, but I am getting back to the basics of tracking my food and exercise. It's too easy to e... Read more

Quitting the fight
Friday, February 15, 2013      5 comments

I've had enough! I'm throwing in the towel on trying to be a certain weight, and trying to eat perfectly. It makes me obsess about food and eventually binge. So what if I weigh 120 instead of my desired 115? So what if I have a little belly ... Read more

50 is getting closer
Thursday, October 04, 2012      5 comments

The days leading up to my 50th birthday are going too fast and my progress too slow. I feel fat, tired and unmotivated. It's getting dark before 7:00 which has brought my weekday biking to a hault--this saddens me. The time between October an... Read more

I've done much better the last couple days with sugar cravings. One suggestion I read recently said it was better to eat a dessert in the middle or immediately following a meal so it doesn't spike my blood sugar level. I've been doing that as ... Read more
I just want to stop thinking about food
Tuesday, September 18, 2012      3 comments

I am mentally exhausted. I'm so tired of thinking about food, logging food, planning ahead, thinking about what I can and can't eat, packing my breakfast and lunch. I just want to be "normal" and eat when I'm hungry and not eat when I'm not. I... Read more
