It's all about choices
Wednesday, April 16, 2008      0 comments

Basically, to lose weight, you need to burn off more calories than you take in. And it all boils down to choices. We all make lots of choices every day, both big and small. We choose to exercise; or we don't. We choose to stick to our meal ... Read more
Chair exercises
Tuesday, April 15, 2008      0 comments

One of the most important ingredients in weight loss is to get moving. I committed to exercise a long, long time ago (pretty good for a total couch potato growing up), but most of my hobbies are quite sedentary. So I have to push myself to add s... Read more

Psychological vs physical hunger
Sunday, April 13, 2008      2 comments

I wrote a while back about how I always want something sweet after both lunch and dinner. Most of the time, it's a psychological craving. I'm not really hungry; not physically hungry (no growling stomach, no stomach pains, no headache, not tired... Read more

Saturday, April 12, 2008      2 comments

You know that heady feeling when you first fall in love? Like all you want to do is be with that person? That the person can do no wrong? And then one day, you realize your beloved has a habit that just drives you nuts. And you want some me... Read more

I'm going to try to make Fridays a day to post healthy eating tips. Lord knows, after 20 years or so of trying to eat healthy, I've got quite a few. So, are you feeling a craving? Employ the 20 minute rule. Do something else for 20 minutes ... Read more
The beauty within
Thursday, April 10, 2008      7 comments

Why do you want to lose weight? I have a whole list of reasons, and none of them say "to look pretty". Yes, one of them is to be happy when I look in the mirror. But this morning I was having deep philosphical thoughts. Well, a little deep... Read more
You gotta know when to hold em . . .
Wednesday, April 09, 2008      2 comments

. . . and know when to fold em. Cravings, that is. I've been having sweet cravings lately. Not terrible, but more than normal. I thought my period was a week away, but turns out it's going to start a bit sooner. The joys of being in your mi... Read more
What would you sacrifice to be thin?
Tuesday, April 08, 2008      2 comments

Supposedly there was a poll on Ivillage, and the 20 somethings said they'd rather be thin & stupid, whereas the older people said they'd rather be smart & heavy. How sad is that? What would you sacrifice to be thin? Your eyes? Abs... Read more
Diet books don't work
Monday, April 07, 2008      0 comments

Well, that's not exactly true. But I just find it amusing that it seems every diet book I've ever bought (yes, there are a fair amount I've tried) says oh, diets don't work because yadda yadda yadda, but follow MY plan & you'll lose weight.... Read more
The green smoothie experiment

This is a quote that I pasted into my visual collage, which I keep in my journal. So after I journal each day, I look through my visual collage. One thing I've seen a lot, in myself and others, is trying for a weight that we look great at .... Read more
Sports Challenge
Saturday, April 05, 2008      0 comments

I think it was on my 1 Day Challenge team that today's challenge was to enjoy a sport. And that was a toughie for me. I'm really just not into sports at all. Of course, you do what appeals to you, and I don't have to do it -- but I thought about... Read more
An Aha! Moment
Friday, April 04, 2008      4 comments

I voluteer at a friends' small cat rescue on Thursdays. And as I was driving up yesterday, I had an aha! moment. My parents, neither of whom have been thin for many, many years, are very judgemental about other people's weight (my own inclu... Read more
Sweet Salmon Rub
Thursday, April 03, 2008      1 comments

One of the teams I'm planning to join had a challenge of sharing something beautiful. Ok, I don't think this qualifies as beautiful, but it is pretty. I took a photo of the dogs in our wild roses patch out back. They're weeds, really, but a weed... Read more
