So lately I have been drug down by a case of who cares. With an extra helping of "I don't have to do this any more". I quit logging my food daily *who does that ?* As if. Normal people don't have to do that (resentment). Predictably there has be... Read more

July of 2003 was the first time I reached a normal BMI

So, I should be all perfect right? Well, I guess today I feel as if that is a true statement in part. Of course I still want to grow. That said, I have had 100 pounds of the extra 200 something I once carried on my body in the late 70's early 80... Read more

7 more days of writing down my food makes my 365 day streak

Friday, April 05, 2013      3 comments

So last year on April 12 2013 I began a food journal. And set a goal to write what I ate every day for a year. This morning I am 30 pounds lighter than I was last year, have been around that goal weight give or take one or two pounds since Novem... Read more

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

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

Tuesday, February 26, 2013      7 comments

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!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013      8 comments

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

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

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

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
