the importance of tracking your food!
Well, I gained a pound last week. Not so horrible in the grand scheme of Christmas and all, but still disappointing.
Last week was also the first week since I started my weight loss journey (about a month ago, even though I've been a SP membe... Read more
I went to the gym this morning and had an excellent workout.
In the past, those were not words you would expect to hear from my mouth. Hell, most people don't expect to hear those words from my mouth NOW. But it's true. I completed day two ... Read more
Just thought I'd post the family contest / challenge information that I came up with. I'll be presenting this to my family tomorrow; hopefully it will go over well!
DUMP THE WEIGHT IN 2008!

down with the sickness; weight loss contests
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas (or happy whatever-you-celebrate!). We had a lovely holiday. We also ate a lot of lovely food...too much! We had a lot, lot, lot of sweets. And considering that I'm newly diabetic, my aunt has been diab... Read more
I think I forgot to note here that I'm also on Metformin for my diabetes now.
My blood sugar numbers still haven't been great. But then again, neither has my diet these last couple of weeks. I've been doing 'OK' staying in my calorie range ... Read more
Not only did I not gain, I actually posted a loss! .6 pounds. Not a lot, but better than I was hoping for...and a loss is a loss. I'm thrilled, and I'm vowing to do even better this week. The stress of knowing I may have gained was really not m... Read more
I had a bad eating weekend. (Really, a bad week, for one reason or another every day.) I sort of expected some trouble on Saturday, since we hosted our annual holiday potluck, but I let it continue onto Sunday. Since then, I've been feeling sha... Read more
I had my second official TOPS weigh-in yesterday and I lost 3.4 pounds! I've been using the calorie counter (both the sheet they provide as well as the resources here) and, though I've done pretty well, I had a couple really bad days the past tw... Read more
tops. and middles.
I forgot to start my crunches yesterday. I did, however, do my ten crunches today.
I also joined TOPS yesterday.... Read more
I *meant* to track my food intake these last several days. Really I did. Somehow it didn't work out that way.
I started out doing really well this week...and did not-so-well, foodwise, the last three days.
Overall this week, I gained a... Read more
dealing with missing and late meals
I learned some things today. I thought, after eating my dinner, that I just had an EPIC FAIL moment.
Turns out it wasn't so bad.
It wasn't so good, either.
I was doing pretty well, overall, during the day with regards to my meals.... Read more
This whole dieting thing sucks. I'm hungry, I have a headache, I have to pee all the time from all the water I'm drinking...
I know it will get better. I'll be less hungry as my body adjusts to the correct amount of calories, the headaches ... Read more
My diet has been so full of sugar and fats that, as I try to stop eating them, I feel like I'm going through withdrawal. I think it's mostly sugar related; every time I try to stop eating simple sugars I get these horrible headaches and feel lik... Read more
I would just like to note that, willingly and of my own accord, I ate a salad with lunch today. At home. A salad I fixed myself, with measured portions and light salad dressing. It accompanied a half (HALF) sandwich. NO MAYONNAISE. (That's a big... Read more
