Update #11 (One Goal Met!)

Tuesday, July 24, 2012      8 comments

Down 2.8 pounds at today's weigh-in for a grand total of 23.2. 23 pounds was my first goal, so that's one down. WooHoo!! I'm just over one-quarter of the way to my final goal. I need to change my tracker, but I think I'll savor this for toda... Read more

Update #10 (Pieces are starting to come together!!)

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      4 comments

WooHoo, some success!! Today was weigh-in day, and I was down 1.8 pounds, for a total of 20.4. I am so stoked to get to 20. I still have A LOT to go, but I had a gain last week, so this loss was good news indeed. The walking and jogg... Read more

Update #9

No news on what's wrong with my dad. They did some exploratory procedure earlier in the week and won't have the results for a while. They do NOT think it's cancer, but he definitely has some obstruction in a kidney. In other news, I gai... Read more

Update #8

Tuesday, July 03, 2012      2 comments

First of all, I am so grateful for all the kind words on my last blog about my dad's illness. It is such a comfort to know that people take the time to respond like that. Spark People are the best!!!! I have no news on that front, but my mom i... Read more

Rough Week (Family Emergency)

Sunday, July 01, 2012      7 comments

I have to consider this a "lost" week as far as Spark People is concerned, but it also served as a scary forecast into my future if I don't get myself together pronto!! I had to leave work early last Monday and drive like a maniac to Albany... Read more

Update #7

Tuesday, June 19, 2012      1 comments

I was up .2 pounds for a total of 17.6 pounds lost for my Tuesday weigh-in. (My Medifast buddy hit 30 pounds this week, which is awesome!) I am actually really happy with how I did this week. In addition to three work events with meals last we... Read more

Update #6 and First Test

Thursday, June 14, 2012      1 comments

I lost 1.4 pounds this week for a total of 17.8 in 7 weeks. Not too shabby. My buddy on Medifast is kicking my butt with a total of 27 pounds, but that's OK. We're both doing awesome. This was also my first real test in a while. I atten... Read more

Update #5

Tuesday, June 05, 2012      4 comments

I was down 2.6 pounds this week, for a six week total of 16.4. Not too shabby, but of course I would like it to be higher. An average of 2 pounds a week is more realistic in the long run. At least I didnít go up! My Medifast buddy has lo... Read more

Medifast Update #4

This is my weekly update related to my weight loss buddy who is doing Medifast and me (who is NOT doing Medifast). My buddy was down 2 pounds this week for a total loss of 20 pounds. After my previous slight falter last week (see my previo... Read more

OK. So this week I gained .8 pounds. I know that's not a huge amount and that there are all kinds of reasons for fluctuations like this, but still... ugh. I'm down 9.8 overall so I'm OK with that -- not ecstatically happy, but OK. My Med... Read more

Medifast Buddy Update #2 (with photo)

My friend and I both lost weight this week. She lost 4.4 pounds and I lost 4.6. I also hung out with my friend for dinner on Friday and she made salmon and fresh asparagus. She used no salt or pepper or butter on anything. I have only h... Read more

Medifast buddy update

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      5 comments

My friend is doing Medifast and I'm following my own plan, which involves real food and tracking everything. I did WW many years ago and reached goal weight, so I'm also incorporating some of the stuff I learned there. I do some walking too, b... Read more

Medifast -- no not me, a friend of mine

Friday, April 27, 2012      6 comments

I work closely with someone (we're not in the same building but we have the same job title). I have been hanging out with her quite a bit. She's about 15 years younger than I am, so she's almost like the daughter I never had too. We're b... Read more

A Little Good News

Thursday, March 08, 2012      3 comments

I have been taking blood pressure medicine for years. My doctor put me on it because I had "borderline" HBP. Well, I started to have some problems with the medication (chronic cough), so he told me to stop taking it and come back in six weeks.... Read more

Why I Don't Lose Weight

Wednesday, March 07, 2012      4 comments

I read an interesting book called "Why I Don't Lose Weight" by Dr. Wilfred Aguila. It talks about conquering the cycle of obesity. He talks about how we become trapped in it and provides some insight into how to break out of it. One of th... Read more
