Whoa, I'm getting close to a healthy weight! Under 6 lb to go. I'm also pledging to get in even better shape over the holidays. I am becoming the me I envisioned when I joined SP: a healthy weight person who prefers to nourish herself... Read more

Today my body asked for rest, and I gave in. The 80 minutes of Level 6 treadmill on Friday night left my muscles stiff. I slept late, and did laundry. Eventually, I kicked myself out of the house to walk 4.09 miles in 60 minutes on the treadm... Read more
Ah, That Feels Good
Friday, November 13, 2009      1 comments

With only 2 weeks left of the Fall 5% Challenge, and 19 days left in BLC11, I'm curious to see just what I can accomplish. Tonight I am 6.2 lbs from a healthy weight. So this morning, I got in 53 minutes on the treadmill at Level 6 before ... Read more
10 Days to Consolidate
Thursday, November 12, 2009      3 comments

I love hunting season! I have no desire to hunt, but while DH pursues his dream, I get to do my own thing. (I enjoy my own company.) The next ten days are mine, all mine! This year, as I face the wind up of two weight loss challenges, th... Read more
Does Anyone Let SP Plan His/Her Meals?
Wednesday, November 11, 2009      5 comments

Tonight I thought I would let SP tell me what to eat for a while. So I turned on that option, and saw that I would have to change everything right off the bat. That experiment lasted 30 seconds. I have been so busy with exercise and being... Read more
The Picture in My Head
Tuesday, November 10, 2009      1 comments

Around July or August I suddenly had an epiphany: I had a vision of myself at a healthy weight, and I saw myself selecting only healthy foods to eat. I was happy being that way. Had I been able to draw, or been good with Photoshop, I migh... Read more
Coming Out of Hiding
Monday, November 09, 2009      7 comments

It started with mention of a visualizer website,
ightmirror/index.php?id= . plays with an uploaded photo to project how your weight loss might look. So I had DH take a photo of ... Read more
Work vs. Home Environment
Sunday, November 08, 2009      5 comments

It's odd to me to read about people who have great difficulty making smart diet and exercise choices on the weekend. On the weekend, I can work in long walks and eat discrete meals without snack attacks. I take a veggie tray to parties, ... Read more
Exploring "Burn the Fat, Feed the Muscle"
Friday, November 06, 2009      2 comments

I just signed up for some intense reading by Tom Venuto, a master body builder. His directions for calculating desirable nutritional needs are quite different from SP, so I will start after I complete the Fall 5% Challenge and BLC11. After... Read more
How Does a Normal (Healthy) Person Eat Out?
Thursday, November 05, 2009      6 comments

I am going out to dinner tonight, and the choices were prime rib, stuffed chicken breast or stuffed rockfish. None of those are particularly diet-friendly. I wonder if I can sweet-talk the restaurant into switching to Mango Chicken Salad. Hmm... Read more
Let's See What November Brings
Wednesday, November 04, 2009      4 comments

So far my aerobic activity is still effective, so I'm riding this wave as long as I can. Who knows, if my trend continues, I could possibly meet my healthy weight goal by the time BLC11 ends. ... Read more
Only 9 to Go!
Tuesday, November 03, 2009      3 comments

If you see someone dancing down the street, it's probably me! I weighed in at WW today at 149, so I have only 9 lbs to go to a healthy weight. I have the Fall 5% Challenge and the BLC11 to thank for this dramatic progress. I plan to c... Read more
So Close I Can Taste It!
Monday, November 02, 2009      2 comments

I'm hovering at the 10-lb-to-go mark, and I'm giddy! My exercise and diet mix seems to still work for me, so I'm going to keep on keeping on. I am focused on the prize!... Read more
Changing Out
Sunday, November 01, 2009      5 comments

Finally! I washed my next-size smaller shirts and went through my next-size smaller gym clothes. There is no need for me to wear tents over my slacks or "culottes" made of spandex. ... Read more
Exercise on a Rainy Day
Saturday, October 31, 2009      6 comments

I'm curious, what exercise do you do on a rainy day? The treadmill at the gym is my favorite way to burn calories, but that is located close to work, not so close to home. At home, when the sun shines, DH and I love to walk around the park... Read more
