Monday, November 12, 2012      1 comments

Counting calories is . . . a total drag. I've tried other things, but today I earnestly counted all the calories I ate. Eye opener there!! I am eating 400 more calories than I would have guessed. That's a lot of course. Particularly when I... Read more

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      4 comments

When I started the plan, it was honestly working well. It was by many accounts working too well. I was losing weight before I was supposed to. Who could complain about that? Because I'm so worried that brain damage may be playing a factor in my ... Read more

Friday, January 20, 2012      1 comments

I'm going to say that I really paid attention to my diet this week. Which I did. I took pictures - that was my goal #1, but I didn't lose any weight. I wasn't 100% perfect on the diet, but I still feel let down. It's like the system has to be pe... Read more

Reviewing my diet log - deveilish carbs
Wednesday, March 23, 2011      2 comments

I started journaling my food this week. I really hate doing it because I get so fixed on the accuracy. "Was that 1 oz of almonds or 1.2? And why doesn't this scale go to the second decimal place anyway?" I got entirely frustrated for 2 minutes ... Read more
