The Science is Good; the Conventional Wisdom is Unwise

Saturday, February 19, 2011      11 comments

This morning's round of measurements show me 1.25 more inches down - yay! Better, my waist-to-hip ratio is down to .77, which makes me a pear (better than an avacado). I'm pleased! Read more

Ramping up some things in February

Sunday, February 06, 2011      6 comments

In my last entry, I crowed about having lost 9 lbs and 3.75 inches as of the 3rd week in January. I'm still so proud of that! This morning, I measured and had lost 2 more inches, but I haven't seen any weight loss at all since January 31st, whe... Read more

Success for the first time in at least a year!

Saturday, January 22, 2011      4 comments

I posted this morning to one of the two 4-Hour Body/Slow Carb diet teams to which I belong on Sparkpeople and realized my post was more like a blog than a post. So I'm copying it here and sharing some changes in my measurements. I looked i... Read more

One more day of 46! and All About Emotions

Thursday, January 13, 2011      3 comments

I got home from work a little while ago, ate a snack (some Oscar Mayer sliced chicken and water - sounds boring, but I'm not too hungry) and thought, "Hmm, what should I do for 15 minutes before leaving for my son's orchestra concert at school?"... Read more

The "31 Days to Unbreakable Resolutions" calendar on Sparkpeople starts with a reminder, on day 1, to settle upon our top goals for the year. I think people quibble too much about the concept of New Year's Resolutions, as if just calling them "r... Read more

Doing quite well on BfL

Wednesday, May 12, 2010      0 comments

It's been about a week since I started Body for Life. It's really nothing more than eating the way Dr. Wells [bariatric doc] taught me to eat several years ago; it's helpful to have a program to commit to rather than doing it on my own, though. ... Read more

Blogging more and Day for Mothers

Saturday, May 08, 2010      2 comments

I feel like I've been talking a lot lately. Like, suddenly I'm my annoying neighbor whom my ex-husband used to call "The Mouth" because you couldn't go within 10 feet of her without her coming over and telling you all of her business, and there ... Read more

March's Goals

Tuesday, March 02, 2010      2 comments

February didn't turn out as I would have liked ... but I managed to do a few things: * I did get started on working with my son to research scholarship opportunities * I did meet my daily goals some of the time * I shifted more towards who... Read more

February's goals

Sunday, January 31, 2010      3 comments

At the beginning of January, I summarized my goals for the month and promised myself I'd re-visit and refine for February. With the help of some journaling and reading about goal-setting in THE SPARK, I made my January goals more specific and ha... Read more

A Person's Perception about Self

Saturday, January 09, 2010      3 comments

I was surprised by the response I got from some dear friends to my January 2010, so I'd to clear up some things because I obviously miscommunicated! Sorry about that! Goals need to be specific and achievable. So, I'd like to lose 25-30 pou... Read more

January 2010

Sunday, January 03, 2010      3 comments

At the beginning of the year, I'm reading about setting and meeting goals ... I didn't do too badly in 2009 until fall/early winter. Then I underwent various changes that were unexpectedly stressful. Couple that with the time change on 10/31 and... Read more

Binging in boredom

Tuesday, July 07, 2009      2 comments

The good news is, I haven't binged in a few days ... even if I've been bored, I've managed to delay the binge: Take a walk, drink some tea, get my hands on my laptop and keep them busy [amazingly effective when I'm poking around Sparkpeople and ... Read more

Growing Older and Standing up Straight

Saturday, November 08, 2008      5 comments

Have you seen the new MORE magazine cover? It shows Jane Fonda, Sharon Stone, and Tea Leoni. It's sobering to realize that Stone and Leoni are in their 50s and 40s, respectively, as they both look great and defy what you'd assume a woman in or ... Read more

One day at a time ... again

Friday, November 07, 2008      0 comments

A person who is dear to me is working to get sober and sent me a text message last night that said, simply, "3 days." I am SO glad I didn't send my first thought, which was, "What is THAT supposed to mean?" (I'm both proud of and angry with th... Read more

Those Sabotaging Emotional Things ...

Sunday, October 05, 2008      3 comments

It's interesting that the one Stage 3 activity I haven't taken part in has to do with blogging about emotional eating because I haven't done all that well during the past 2-3 weeks when it comes to caring for myself (i.e., eating right and exerc... Read more
