ACHIEVEMENT. n. "The death of endeavor, and the birth of disgust" From the Devils Dictionary by Ambr

Sunday, March 31, 2013      1 comments

Well here we are, the last day of March, Easter Sunday, and I am posting a slight new low weight. I am "moving in" to this body now. This "old" new body is a delight to me in so many ways. So why does this Bierce quote resonate with me? In 12 mo... Read more

Maintenance is not fun. The alternative is scary though. I went to a meeting yesterday where there were some individuals who had some difficulties that made my own recent aggravations seem sort of whiney. And small. For some inexplicable reason ... Read more

I know why no one wants to do this the way I did :)

I looked at the history spreadsheet I have this morning, to attempt to get an idea how long I have been on this road to "normal" BMI. My life has been this struggle. This is not to say that I have done nothing else, most people see me as a succe... Read more

So THIS is how it happens

Maintenance is a minefield. I got to the weight where Weight Watchers lets me attend meetings for free late last year. So at that time, I intended to lose another 5 - 10 pounds to move more safely into the normal BMI range for my height. I have ... Read more

OH NOOOES Don't tell them it's Okay to be a little fat!

I have been thinking of this for several days since the rash of posts about that article that suggested it is "healthy" for people to be a bit overweight. So most of my friends here know I am a nurse, and that I teach nursing at a local U. I hav... Read more

Okay. Things are going Very Well here, on day 256 of tracking my food and a bunch of other things. This past two days I shifted gears a bit, and started paying attention in a different way to my food. It is not all put into the spark journal bec... Read more

I got a gift card for Christmas and went to use it today. I needed a lift in the worst way after a rather rocky day yesterday (WHEN I STILL JOURNALED EVERYTHING I ATE) and it was ugly. The cool thing is that I know one day does nothing (especial... Read more

256 Days of food journaling even while on vacation

Friday, January 04, 2013      1 comments

And I get bugged because I didn't park far from the mall when it was raining and cold? Sometimes I amaze myself. I am nicely in my goal range for a free Weight watchers weigh in tomorrow, after holiday food and travel. I did learn something from... Read more

I already missed a goal, darn should I delete that one?

Thursday, January 03, 2013      8 comments

To say that I am hard on myself would not be an exaggeration. I have to admit that it has gone so far that if I have a goal that I mess up early, I will often just remove that from the long list so that I stay at 100 percent (or even fudge it a ... Read more

New year officially begins

I have felt new for a while now :). But here we are with January, and there is not going to be anywhere near the amounts of tempting junk all over. Of course the stores will have Valentines out, and Easter candy. But I can stay out of those area... Read more

I won Christmas too

Wednesday, December 26, 2012      5 comments

So. I have great admiration for the power of a streak that is long enough to be difficult to blow off. This past few days (weeks?) of holiday extras, stresses, events..... truly designed to wear down the best will of a person who is on a path th... Read more

La Ti Da, I won Thanksgiving, and I know why ....

Sunday, November 25, 2012      2 comments

So I had pie. Just not an extreme amount. I had some of everything. Ok, so I was maintaining my weight this past week, and losing a half pound a week the two weeks before that. I imagine that if I continued to eat an average of 2000 calories dai... Read more

Eat This instead of THAT :). Day 206 of the journal, and yep Keeping It Today Too

Thursday, November 22, 2012      1 comments

So there is all this stuff here in the house for Thanksgiving. There are people here that I love to impress with my cooking skills. I have home made organic pumpkin pie, zucchini bread, all kinds of vegetables, other things. I have been cooking ... Read more

Day 210 of keeping the journal, if I made it last week I can make it 365

Monday, November 19, 2012      0 comments

I sort of lost my focus last week, and if not for filling out that food journal and committing to weighing in at WW for November, I might have wandered off track. That concept of streaks is a powerful thing. Once the streak gets past a certain p... Read more

0 this is so exciting ...

I got a new scale low this morning. And now I am standing here at a podium at work trying to entertain myself while my students take a math exam. They are all wanting to go to the bathroom, and we cannot let them go because they are on computers... Read more
