What your GW should be, that is. Well, it's a highly personal decision. I know when my weight creeps into the 140s, I am not happy: I don't like how my face looks or my clothes fit. It's often only a matter of a couple of pounds, but when you're... Read more
It all adds up SO quickly!

It really is amazing how a little bite of this & a little bite of that adds up pretty quickly to a LOT of calories. With his sister's wedding fairly fresh in mind, I figured we'd be sitting down to dinner at 9 pm. Which of course would be e... Read more

Firsy, my Olympic update: I'm not a night person, so I tape it & watch it the next day. Just finished watching the duel in the pool . . . great race! I'm 3/4 thru women's gymnastics & was so sad to see ally falter. I can't even imagine how paren... Read more
Failed experiment? Or was it?

So I tried to eat as much lime last week as possible. It's really the first time I've tried it. Nope, no big loss this week. A . 02 gain, which is still winning in my book. Sure, I was hoping for a better outcome - who doesn't want a loss every ... Read more

Just because you lose the battle doesn't mean you've lost the war. Another week unsure for me: I think I've done well, but I'm not really quite sure what the scale has in store for me. I ate wll -- actually far less BLTs than last week -- a... Read more

I'm not only repeating last week's food as much as possible because I had good results, but because I enjoyed my food, too! These came from The Vegetarian Lunchbasket, a cookbooki've had forever but never used until now. Asparagus Rollups ... Read more
An experiment

Altho I definitely have some staples, I love trying new things. But I'm experimenting this week, trying to repeat the previous week's food. I can't completely - it's just not in my nature & of course sat's potluck throws a monkey wrench in there... Read more

Had a really nice long run yesterday. Funny how 6 miles doesn't really seem to qualify as a long run anymore. Don't get me wrong -/ it's still an effort & tiring, but it no longer seems long. And I still remember the high of being able to run on... Read more
Sometimes it's all just weird

There are times I know I've lost weight. There are times I know I've gained. Sometimes I know why; and sometimes I'm totally clueless. And sometimes I'm unsure, like yesterday (and clueless). For most of last week I was way hungrier than us... Read more

Of today's WI, that is. Eating-wise my week was ok, but it was one of those weeks with more BLTs than normal (bites, licks & tastes). I wore a pair of skinny jeans yesterday. I've been trying to wear something form fitting once a week, so t... Read more

No yoga in a dress yesterday, but I did grab a mat upstairs & started to do abs upstairs - many of the moves standing, so I was easily visible. Still dressed in jean shorts & a casual tank top. It seemed such a hassle to change & I was onl... Read more
Am I the only one who buys everything BUT veggies at the farmer's market?

Well, I did buy grape tomatoes & devoured almost a quarter of the 2 pints the minute I got home. And I bought apples, too. I would've bought corn but i'm not wuite sure what we're doing for dinner. It can be hard to get into the veggie stalls wi... Read more
Yes, it can be ok to eat after a certain time

There are "diets" that warn notto eat after a certain hour - because your metabolism slows down at night and it will all just turn to fat. And I know people who will take it to heart & skip eating dinner if the witching hour has arrived. La... Read more
