So I did lose two more pounds last week, after all that whining. I'm coming to realize, though, that slowing down is probably partially my own fault. The last 2-3 weeks have been really stressful with our schedules getting turned upside down. ... Read more

OK this really bites, my last entry was on March 3 and I was 190 then, and it's now almost the end of March and I'm still 186. 4 pounds in a month is kinda pathetic. Actually, I'd be pretty darn excited about 4 pounds in a month if I wasn't tr... Read more

I met my first goal! And no I'm not talking about surviving The Move. I hit 190 pounds, which was my first milestone. Not that that's a ton of weight loss, but 190 pounds is the magic number that fits me into size 14 jeans again, so it's a bi... Read more

Well, I haven't been losing weight nearly as fast as I'd like to (which would be about 1 pound a day, is that so much to ask?) but I did check my BMI last night and I have officially crossed the line from being obese to merely overweight. Wooho... Read more

Carrots are addicting. They aren't even that good. But if I have a little ziploc bag of carrots, and I open it and take one, I just keep eating them until they're gone, almost without realizing it. They're like pringles, once you pop you can'... Read more

I've lost 5 pounds in one week, go me! And yes I know you're only supposed to lose 2 pounds a week, but there will be plenty of weeks that I lose 0 pounds, so it will all even out in the end. I'm still struggling with the whole carb-watching t... Read more

It's Tuesday. Tuesdays are the worst day of the week. It started out poorly because we ran out of milk and I couldn't have the fruit smoothie that I woke up craving, and continued with the scale swinging up by half a pound. And it's exacerbat... Read more

I've lost 4 pounds already! I know the first ten pounds or so is going to melt off like water and the rest is going to stick to me like glue, but I'm still happy to see some progress. Even though I ate like a pregnant lady yesterday. I'm maki... Read more

I lost my first pound this morning! Yay me. I know that really doesn't mean a whole lot since my weight is constantly fluctuating by a pound or two no matter what I eat, but still, it makes me feel like I accomplished something. Which is good... Read more

Day 2! The first day of the rest of my life, "or something". I used the lifestyle calculator thingie last night to calculate whether or not I'd had a "good" day. Now, normally during the course of the day I've eaten twice as much as I did yes... Read more

Well this bites, I had a nice entry all typed up and it didn't post. Blogger Deja Vu. I'm officially on day 1 of the Spark thing, and it's been a very enlightening half day. I had a fairly modest breakfast and snack, motivated entirely by ... Read more
