Week 12 Update
Tuesday, March 28, 2017      0 comments

I forgot to weigh myself this morning. I have graduated to plain coffee -- I don't need to brew it with spices in the hopper anymore! This means I also don't necessarily need cream and sugar when I'm out, either. I'm trying to figure o... Read more
Week 11 Update

Stayed the same, weight-wise. I'm not needing coffee quite as often, which is great! I want to figure out my health stuff but I'm not totally sure where to start. Diet, exercise... what's been key for you?... Read more
Week 10 Update

Regained this week. Oops. I think it was partly a messed up schedule. I'm back on the wagon (mostly) after a weekend of not worrying about it. Today I didn't need coffee! I felt sleepy around noon, but I was able to get through it and had a... Read more
Week 9 Update
Tuesday, March 07, 2017      6 comments

I lost three pounds last week. Obviously something is working! I think LoseIt! is my favourite of the three apps. Still using all three and I'll always use SP of course. What I've found is that most days I eat less than my allotted cal... Read more
Week 8 Update

I lost more! So glad. I am currently tracking my food here as well as MyFitnessPal and LoseIt. I'm going to see which of the other two I like best. Or I might keep using all three, it's interesting to compare the differences. One thing I like ab... Read more

Down again. New meds have been making me really sleepy but that may be lifting already! Busy-ish day tomorrow. Hoping to be able to continue making good choices food-wise.... Read more

Regained that 3lbs but I'm okay with that for now. I saw the doctor on Thursday and had some bloodwork done. My right foot requires physiotherapy (I have a note) and I am supposed to get custom orthotics (another note). My husband's in... Read more

Three pounds down! Not changing my plan yet. Stick with what I've been doing, basically. I have a doctor's appointment Thursday afternoon. I'll tell you about it next week, probably.... Read more
Week 4 Update

Missed last week. Sorry about that! I've been doing okay. Not much weight loss (if any) but I'm okay with that for now, especially since exercise isn't a thing I can do at the moment. I'm sticking with my plan pretty well. I'll just li... Read more
Week 2 Update

Last week went well, I think. I probably snacked too much in the evening though, leading to just a half pound loss. Onward and upward, though; any loss is good, and right now as long as the number doesn't go up I'll be satisfied! This week I'm... Read more
Week 1 Update 2017

A variety of things happened last week that sabotaged my attempts to cut sweeteners and yeast, but I did my best and made the best choices that I could in light of the situations I found myself in. I am pleased to report that I lost 1.5 lbs... Read more
Happy New Year!

My plans this year are pretty simple. I'm cutting sweeteners and yeast from my diet. I'm hoping to get into physio for my plantar fasciitis. Once the weather is nice again I'm going to start going for a nice long walk with my todd... Read more
Making a plan and working the plan -- Keep It Simple Silly!

I do meal planning on a monthly basis. By which I mean, I have a rotating schedule of meals for dinners and Saturday breakfasts, and I put it all into Plan to Eat as recipes, and it generates my weekly grocery lists. I set up the month and then ... Read more
Back to tracking.

I can't track my walk today though. I didn't bother checking the time when we started and ended, and I'm not 100% sure where along the river we were. But I did get outside and get some exercise with my husband and son and my brother-in-law. ... Read more

From dieting and stuff, at least, taking a break. Last week I went for a really long walk with my son one morning, it was half an hour to the neighbour's and my right foot rebelled at the end of it all so I am nursing plantar fasciitis on t... Read more
