Better this week
My weight went up to 136 point something last week; today, however, it was down to 134.2! I hope I am on the right path now. I've cut out most of the cheese I eat (I'll have it in, say, one or two meals per week) and my blood sugars have been ... Read more
One small change
This week, instead of Insanity, I will try to go along with Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint lifestyle and do three days of easy cardio, two days of 30-minute strength training, and one day of sprints. Might as well go all-out, right? I think I'... Read more
Still Working at it, with no results ... yet
Still no weight loss since starting to eat LCHF. I am reading Mark Sisson's Primal Blueprint and have decided to cut the cheese (except for a bit of aged gouda that I bought yesterday), eat more nuts, cut all artificial sweeteners and as many p... Read more
Bad Day Yesterday
Yesterday was a disaster! I was doing all right until I went out to lunch at Chili's with my daughter and a friend. I ordered the Monterey chicken w/o BBQ sauce and had the broccoli as it was the only side I could eat. Sometimes my stomach ge... Read more
Hoping Weight Loss Starts Soon ...
I have gained two pounds since starting to eat low carb. This week I am going to start working out at my old pace (running three days per week and strength training three days per week) since I've slacked off from not feeling too well the first... Read more
Day 1 of Low Carb
I've read Dr. Bernstein's books and became inspired to try his diabetes diet. I am a type 1 diabetic and would LOVE to get my blood sugars under control. The low-carb plan makes sense. I was afraid to start at first because I didn't know how ... Read more
Disappointed in Myself
I've gained three pounds since last week. The past month and a half have been difficult for me to maintain my good eating habits (the working out part hasn't been much of a problem though). This really reinforces the fact that for me at least,... Read more
I have been so hungry this week! Last night I pigged out on dinner (turkey burgers with guacamole and organic Tostitos). I definitely went over my calorie limit. This whole week has been a challenge. I eat a meal and I'm starving the next mi... Read more
I Have a Problem ...
All of my pants are too big!
I thought I would be happy to have this problem. Don't get me wrong; it's a great indication of my progress; however, I don't want to go out and buy a bunch of new clothes now and then lose some more weight .... Read more
Rough Couple of Weeks
My mom has been in the hospital since mid-January and my days have consisted of dropping my daughter off, going to work, picking my daughter up, going to the hospital, coming home from the hospital, going to bed ... and going out to eat in betwe... Read more
I couldn't believe that I was down to 134.8 lbs. this weekend! Granted, I weighed 137 this morning, so we'll see how that all pans out during my weigh-in on Sunday.
I honestly did not expect to see results like these when I started my late... Read more
Sundays are my weekly weigh-in days but I usually hop on the scale a couple of times throughout the week. I did this on Wednesday and saw a number that I hadn't seen since before I had my daughter 4 years ago - 138!!! I haven't been in the 130... Read more
Last week I saw the scale drop again, which was awesome! It showed that my dedication to eating salads and lean protein at lunch while staying within my calorie range and working out 6 days per week was really helping.
Now, this week is ... Read more
Thanksgiving Wins Again
I did not stick to my "everything in moderation" plan toward Thanksgiving dinner. I think my problem is that when I have the opportunity to eat food that I do not normally have in the house (junk food), I overdo it and eat it like there's no to... Read more

A Little Disappointed
I gained a couple of pounds since last week. I'm not surprised, but I'm disappointed. This past week I didn't track my nutrition as well as the previous weeks. I worked out on schedule, except for yesterday but I will make that up today with ... Read more
