Wk 19 Weigh In
Not too much to write today, My son started his sophomore year of high school this week, giving me some peace and quiet to do my own schoolwork. Had a computer down for a couple of weeks and finally got a new system hooked up on Thursday.

Wk 18 Weigh In
Ok, I know it's Monday and I weighed in on Saturday. But I had computer go down last week and I've been letting my son use my computer until school starts (which was today!!). Have a new computer on the way and I have my days to myself (mostly)... Read more
Wk 17 Weigh In

Wk 16 Weigh In
Still hot here in Central California, mid to high 90's mostly. I had kind of a bummer of a week, although I did finally get a paper written for my Ethical Situations in Business class, a paper that I had been putting off for a couple of weeks. N... Read more
Wk 15 Weigh In
It's hot here. 94-95 degrees, which isn't bad considering that usually this time of year it's 100+, but still I'm feeling uncomfortable. But on the flip side, I know that if I hadn't lost 39 pounds to date, I would be much more uncomfortable. W... Read more
Wk 14 Weigh In (a day late)
Yesterday was my weigh in day, and I weighed in. But then the day was pretty hectic. Went to lunch with 14 other family members to celebrate maternal grandmother's 90th bday. Good times. Grandfather's 91st will be coming up in a couple of months... Read more
Week 13 Weigh In
So this last week was a real diet doozy. First I weighed in Saturday morning then had the rest of the day as my "free day" to eat whatever I want. I don't ever really pig out, but usually take in between 2500 and 3500 calories on "free day". But... Read more
Week 12 Weigh In
So after a week of not eating all the way clean, I feel pretty good. Weighed in this morning and was happy to see what the scale had to say:
Loss of: 2.6lbs
I have pledged to lose 15 lbs this month (there are 5 sat... Read more
Week 11 (changes)
Okay, I have changed my weigh in day from Monday to Saturday. Simple reason is that Saturday has always been my "free day", the day that I do what I want (including eating). But, the local Biggest Loser challenge that I did from April 11th to Ju... Read more
Week 10 Weigh In
So today marks the end of my local Biggest Loser (BL) contest. I weighed in at 290.2 for a loss of 2.6 lbs. Approximately 12 minutes of kettlebell work done this week, that's it for exercise. Officially I lost 27 lbs in the ten week period. In t... Read more
Week 9 Weigh In (loss!)
Week 9 of my local biggest loser challenge and I lost 3 lbs. at today's weigh in! Slowly but surely the weight is coming off.
I've lost 11.2 lbs in the last 4 weeks with zero exercise (for the last 3 weeks, 20-30 minutes the first week).... Read more
How I lost 8.2 lbs in 3 weeks (must read stuff!)
In 3 weigh ins (May 24, May 31, June 6) I managed to lose 8.2 lbs. In the first week I did approximately 20-30 minutes of exercise. (I hurt my back that week and it hasn't fully recovered yet.) In the 2 weeks that followed I did zero fitness min... Read more
Week 8 Weigh In (another loss)
Well another week down. This week's weigh in was good. I lost another 2.8 lbs. So far in 8 weeks I have lost a total of 21.4 lbs. Of course I wish it were more, but I'll take a loss over a gain any day!
Probably the most beautiful part of ... Read more
Week 7 Weigh In
Week 7 weigh in today ...
But before I get into that, I need to fix some math from last week. The gal that wrote down my numbers last week miscalculated. I lost 2.6lbs last week, not 3.6lbs. So my weight last week was 301.4, down a total o... Read more
Week 6 Weigh In ... finally a loss again
So today was my week 6 weigh in and I dropped 3.6lbs., hurray!
After 2+ weeks of not losing any weight I decided to completely change my diet and exercise regimen. From Friday to Monday I lost 3.6lbs and I am now looking forward to my nex... Read more
