I have a new digital scale. Previously my scale was set 5 pounds ahead to make it accurate, but I could lean and change the weight. I also could change the angle of the lighting and receive a different reading. I had some room to grow. Now, this... Read more

My great nephew is a great stabilizer for my more Grinch like moods this time of year. I am stressed and worrying about what to get, when to be at events or family gatherings, the cost of all the "cheer". He on the other hand, just wants to sing... Read more
Eating like CRAP again.

Pizza, Chinese food and A&W all in the last 3 days and I feel sluggish and yucky. I did this almost a month ago and had the same feeling, but I guess I am a slow learner. I really need to change my thinking. Can't keep doing this and maintain le... Read more
Tracking is soooooo important!!!

I went over my calories today by about 500 and I thought that I was doing well. I knew that the brownie I had was decadent but man was I surprised by the score today! I have the night shift at work this week and even though I can sleep, I am a l... Read more

So yesterday I had Chinese food and it was quite greasy and gave me a "heavy" feeling. I later had stomache pains. Then today I had fish and chips and had the same stomache pains. I have had some minor issues before, but this was pretty persista... Read more

I have been on track now for about 2 weeks. I had a bit of disappointment though when I "lost" 5 pounds in the first week only to gain 2 of them back. I know rationally that some of the initial weight I lost was water and that there are other fa... Read more

I lost my dog to a battle with cancer and I have been trying to move past it. I have another dog and he was always the "other" dog. Now he is numero uno. I had to deal with the loss fairly quickly because of a near death of a beloved aunt of min... Read more

So I met my weight goal and have been maintaining for about 5 months. I feel worried that I will fall back, as I had done once before. I am trying to figure things out this time though. You know, instead of just counting calories and adding some... Read more

Well right now I am in the maintaining part of my weight loss. I am having problems with it though because I go up a pound and down a pound fairly regularly. I have lifted restrictions on foods I had mostly put aside and I think I am sabotaging ... Read more
