Easiest Ten Pounds Ever
Well that was the easiest ten pounds ever! Technically, I'm down eleven pounds since the first of the month, but ten is a nice, round number.
What I Did:
- Ate THREE pieces of Black Forest Cake from Costco

I just ordered something from the Home Shopping Channel for the first time ever! I feel like such a loser!
I'm buying the Tony Little Shaper Bar, which is like a body bar with detachable resistance bands. It comes with four DVDs, includin... Read more
Two Thumbs Down - Easter Eggs
I ate two MINI Easter Eggs (one Caramilk, one Creme) at work today. I immediately felt extremely ill and spent about an hour in the washroom afterwards. Yuck! However, they went through my system pretty quick and I was able to go to the gym a... Read more

Mmmm... Home-Cooked Meals
This week I've been eating pitas with homemade hummous, homemade Greek salad, and mock chicken. It's SO good! I love making hearty salads that can hold up for a few days at a time.
On the flipside, I cleared out my freezer over the week... Read more
Somebody noticed that I'd lost weight. I was wearing my least-flattering (but most comfortable) dress pants, and I just passed it off as the pants being too baggy... I want to keep things on the downlow in the real world. There have been times... Read more

... but the knees of an 80-year-old!
I've always, always had naturally hyperextended knees, although I learned in Grade 6 that they're considered unattractive so I do a darn good job of not letting them lock backwards. However, it seems ... Read more
Out to Dinner
This was my first restaurant meal of the program! I tried to plan ahead throughout the day but still ended up eating more than my fair share of calories. I tracked them honeslty though; even adding in extra oil under the assumption that it was... Read more
I'm Not Bluffin' 'Bout My Muffins...
Seriously, that 700-calorie muffin from Costco pissed me off (even though I only ate half... luckily). I have already emailed Costco to say that I think their muffins need to be reformulated.
I also took it upon myself to buy the things I ... Read more
Costco Banana-Nut Muffins
I ate half a muffin with breakfast this morning (from the staff room)- 350 calories! WTF? Seriously! A whole muffin should not be 700 calories! That's obscene!
I am actually going to write an email to Costco saying that I think that i... Read more
I feel like I'm treating this weight loss thing as though it were a part-time job. I go to work all day, and then in the evening and on the weekend HEALTH is a huge thing. Three weeknights each week I do 60+ minutes of cardio at the gym, follo... Read more

Can I blame George Bush for this somehow?... Read more
My friends have been constantly nagging me to do some online dating.
So, I signed up for eHarmony. In the past two months, I've been matched with four men (one of whom was more than twenty years older than me). Their profiles were all sup... Read more
