Some Little Slip-Ups
I have definitely slipped up and had more sugar this week than I would have liked. This was in part because of the death of a cousin (DH's cousin, actually). It sent me into a bit of a tailspin. I slipped up at the repast and did not turn awa... Read more
My Sugar Battles
Without going into a lot of detail, they have actually been pretty good. I've made a lot of progress in the last month or two as far as fighting my sugar demons is concerned. I've drastically reduced my intake of refined sugar, and I am very p... Read more
A Non-Scale Victory
I have been wearing XL T-shirts ever since I can remember. Depending on the cut of my shirt and my current weight, sometimes they could be a little snug.
Today in my office, they were giving out free t-shirts (some organization; I am sti... Read more
Couldn't handle the praise
I know it's been a little while. I have a few things i can comment on. Last Saturday, the 14th, I went to a family gathering. My cousin's (actually my husband's) son just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. He has been in the military for ... Read more
Just to clarify
When I talk about giving up sugar, I am only talking about refined sugars, which includes HFCS of course. I am NOT talking about fruit. I love fruit and I think it is very good for you!!! It is beside the point that today I was not very good ... Read more
What is my biggest healthy eating accomplishment so far?
I just answered this question on the Daily Spark. I LOVE edamame!!! A year ago, I never even heard of it. Now it is one of my real favorites. Give me shelled edamame, and I am a very happy woman. Fortunately, it is frequently on the salad b... Read more
It's Deja Vu all Over Again
The above is a quote from Yogi Berra, though he may not have really said it. The significance here is that I experienced a sense of deja vu when I was in California last week. We were at a Polo Ralph Lauren outlet, and that is where I was when... Read more
Lost my internet (temporarily)
My participation here is likely to be erratic until Sunday. As luck would have it, that is March 1, so I can start off with the new month.
We got home from California, and almost immediately, we started having problems with our internet. ... Read more
I'm Back - in more ways than one
We touched down at JFK Airport at 4:45 am on Monday morning, which is 1:45 am Pacific time. The trip was really good. I had a great time with my son, David. The short reprieve from the cold weather was nice, too. As for my parents, they are... Read more
Greetings from California
Well, I am here, and the weather is beautiful. I am having a hard time eating normally, if you will. Part of it is the time change, and part of it is being away from my normal routine. So far I am not proud of how I am doing, but I will just ... Read more
Recap for the week
I am down 1.4 lbs. this week. Of course, that is after a 2 lb. gain, so I still net a gain for the month.
What I did right:
Major elimination of sugar. I did a reasonable job adhering to my goals for 5 of the 7 days. Some difficul... Read more
What worked and what didn't
Well, I am up 2 lbs. this week. It is discouraging, but I really think I can stop it. I think that a lot of us that have let our weight get out of hand have had a point (a high weight limit, if you will) where we will really not want to gain m... Read more
I haven't blogged for a few days. I have not been as good as I should be about sugar. Once again, I feel like I really have to swear it off pretty much. Small pieces of dark chocolate seem to be ok. Candy itself (like jelly beans) doesn't ha... Read more
Finished the month
Down 7 lbs. Not quite as good as I said it would be, but not so bad either. Gotta go get 'em this month.
I was hoping to go to the gym tonight with DH to use some of the machines. I figured with Super Bowl Sunday it wouldn't be too cro... Read more
Much reason to be proud in spite of setbacks
Well, as the month comes to a close, I tend to get reflective. So here goes:
I continue to "cheat" a little more often than I should. I would like to make February my month to analyze my triggers and try to tame them. This gets me upse... Read more
