Too much water?
This might be TMI for you, but I peed 14 times yesterday. And every time, it was like I HAD to go, RIGHT then. Like, I was doing what my mother used to call "the wee wee dance." It wasn't an issue of having a "tiny tank" or something...there was... Read more
I didn't push myself super hard today!
I feel very happy with the mental progress I made today. :)
Granted, it happened primarily (I think) because the scale this morning showed 120.8, which is still much too low for me (goal is minimum 129) and I realized that I have made VERY ... Read more
Feeling all kinds of off-balance with my exercise!
For two reasons:
1. I overslept this morning.
2. I COULD NOT get the SP run/walk tracker to work for me today. It just wouldn't come up at all in IE at work, and when I switched to Chrome, I got partway through my morning ... Read more
Scaling back, kind of
So as you may know if you've read my previous blogs, I'm actually supposed to make the totally-seems-wrong, holy-crap-this-is-backwards, never-thought-I'd-be-in-this-p

I didn't work out a lot today! Yay?
I only did about half an hour on the elliptical and 30 minutes of weight lifting. It made me kind of uncomfortable for the rest of the day (so much sitting around!) but I guess it's good for me. Gotta get my fertility and body fat and all that b... Read more
Judging other people's choices
Does this make me a bad person?
I was at the dentist's for a cleaning, and the dentist and his assistant (who is his daughter) were discussing food and weight loss and so on with me. The dentist said something about his granddaughter (the a... Read more
Trading one control problem for another, it seems
I don't know about you, but in my heavier days, I struggled a lot with the whole "just one more bite" or "just one more cookie" issue. I'd let myself have more than I should of something, and I'd just tell myself I'd do better next time. I'd eat... Read more
Some babymaking humor :)
I got upset a few times today thinking about a girl I went to school with, who I learned just had a baby via the blessing/curse that is facebook. She's one of those naturally skinny people - and I mean SUPER skinny. Like, she looks anorexic, but... Read more
Delicious healthy dinner (and low-calorie, too!)
Technically, that subject line is a little bit of a lie. Because I didn't have dinner.
I had dinners.
I'm telling you, it's so hard to eat as much as I'm trying to in order to gain weight. 3300-3500 calories per day, and I'm really not... Read more
I will be de-cysted and probably de-ovaried on September 11. Got some pre-op appointments Sept. 7 with my gynecologist, who will be performing the surgery, and the hospital in order to have an "anasthesia consult" and whatnot.
Yaaaaaaaay.... Read more
Fun weekend activities!
Yesterday we went to a big lake that's about an hour and a half drive away, just to check it out. It seems to be a big deal to locals, I guess. It was a lovely drive, and a lovely scenic lake, though of course that meant that there were TONS of ... Read more

Addicted to those endorphins!
Yesterday was my "rest day" or active recovery day or whatever, so even though I did 30 minutes of abs and walked for about 10 miles during the course of the day (whoops)...there weren't any big intense cardio workouts that made me breathe hard ... Read more
How much does an ovary weigh?
Because having it surgically removed is certainly one way to lose a bit of weight.
(Not that I'm trying to lose weight any more, of course, but still...I had to make the lame joke.)
So my gynecologist and my reproduc... Read more
Well, I *was* feeling good...
I had a good time this weekend, I ate a lot, I didn't exercise as hard as I usually do because I was camping with family, etc. It made me nervous - I almost definitely gained a bit of weight - but weight gain is good, taking it easier on exerci... Read more
