The camera stole my soul
Saturday, March 21, 2009      3 comments

I feel that way, anyway. It's been 3 months since I had a comparison photo taken. And in those 3 months, I've lost 2 1/2 pounds -- most of that in the last few weeks. So why was I expecting to see a difference in the photos? Here's the odd ... Read more
Woohoo! I did it!
Friday, March 20, 2009      5 comments

Weight loss 3 weeks in a row. I broke the pattern. Next week should really begin TOM, so I'm not holding my breath, but hope springs eternal, as they say. There were several days this week when I was just a bit hungrier than usual. I just tried ... Read more
It snuck up on me
Thursday, March 19, 2009      6 comments

While the above could certainly apply to weight, it's our move date! Just a little over a month away, we now have a "firm" date -- of course, it was also firm a couple of days ago until DH realized he couldn't possibly finish the flooring in the... Read more
I get no respect
Wednesday, March 18, 2009      5 comments

Do you ever feel that way? I know I do. I had hoped that a year apart would bring my husband new-found appreciation for all those little things I do: take care of the animals, shop, cook, clean, laundry (he does his clothes, but I do the re... Read more
The best things aren't as good as a best life
Tuesday, March 17, 2009      4 comments

I'm paraphrasing Oprah here. In the last half hour I've forgotten what the exact quote was, but you get the gist. This blog sort of goes hand in hand with yesterday's, but lately I seem to have trouble focusing so I ramble a bit. Hopefully it'll... Read more
Shopping in my own closet
Monday, March 16, 2009      3 comments

I think I have done the final cut in my closet. Although maybe I need to do yet another run-through -- do I really need 3 little black dresses? Truth be told, there are more than 3, but there are 3 beaded little black dresses. I have very ... Read more
Going for 3
Sunday, March 15, 2009      3 comments

Weeks of weight loss, that is. I'll put my goal out there. For a long time I was stuck in a holding pattern of gain, lose a little bit more, gain not quite all of it back, lose a little bit more . . . things were inching down . . . slowly. ... Read more
Cutting the sugar
Saturday, March 14, 2009      4 comments

For a long time I've been drinking Silk's fiber-enriched Vanilla soymilk. But it has something on the order of 17 gm of sugar per cup. That's more than 4 teaspoons of sugar! Okay, I don't have a carton here now -- it might be less, but it still ... Read more
I know I can do it
Friday, March 13, 2009      3 comments

I don't know why this time seems different from past attempts, but I just feel I can do it. It's the first time in many, many years that I've lost a fair amount of weight. Little surprise that it's also the first time in many, many years that I'... Read more
Running away from problems
Thursday, March 12, 2009      3 comments

They say you should never run away from things -- only sometimes, you should. Actually, I don't have any real pithy thoughts on that -- except if maybe you should run away from burning buildings -- but I just couldn't come up with a snappy title... Read more
Hooked on YBB
Wednesday, March 11, 2009      4 comments

I considered Yoga Booty Ballet for months. While most people seem to love it, the reviews on various sites were rather mixed. Not a good enough workout. Well, I am totally hooked. I should be changing up my routine and doing other workouts... Read more
Exercise or food, which comes first?
Monday, March 09, 2009      2 comments

I pondered this for a while. Both are necessary for a healthy lifestyle. Food has to come first, to my mind. Without good food, you won't have the energy you need to power through your workouts. It takes a long, long time to burn off food. ... Read more
A 17 year love affair
Sunday, March 08, 2009      3 comments

That has nothing to do with food or weight loss. Or maybe it does. Like all good love affairs, there have been times when I couldn't get enough of it, and times when I couldn't be bothered with it. Sometimes years went by before something sparke... Read more
The great water experiment
Saturday, March 07, 2009      3 comments

I have been a water drinker for years and years. I gave up all soda many years ago. Every once in a great while I might sip my husband's, but even that urge is fading as I continue to curtail (but never completely give up!) sweets. I found ... Read more
Can I be happy where I am?
Friday, March 06, 2009      1 comments

I am still avoiding the p-word, but there's little doubt I am stalled -- according to the scale and according to my measuring tape. Yet things do undoubtedly fit better. I can't quite figure it out, but I'm happy for it. Could I be happy in... Read more
