Today, Day 1, went well. I stayed in range and even exercised in the evening, a rare occurrence for me. But now I am hungry, tired and it's time for bed. But I know there will be fireworks going off all around the neighbourhood. Fat chance of s... Read more
Happy Canada Day!
I'm laying bare the truth about my body right now. I'm posting this on my page and will update it every day with my weight, my calories in and my exercise. Once a month, I will update my measurements.
I think this wa... Read more
I am committed to getting serious in July. I hope that by making July a good, losing month, I will get on a roll and continue losing weight for the rest of the year. I want to be back at goal weight in time to ring in the New Year. Tomorrow mor... Read more
I just read the article below. I won't be eliminating all those foods from my diet at once, and some of them not ever, but in July it will be NO FRENCH FRIES FOR ME!
Next up (in August): POTATO CHIPS!

That's how many points I think I got today. No exercise. Ate out in a restaurant and my dh, who got there before me ordered TWO entrees for me, and I seem to have done my best to eat BOTH of them.
Tomorrow will have to ... Read more

Exercise: 2 points!

I've been giving myself a score out of ten for how I've been doing. And, as usual, my ability to sustain an effort beyond a few days has been less than impressive. I've just been grading myself on "feel" and since I'm a teacher, I realized that... Read more
Well I've done a LOT of running on treadmills (at my YMCA). Something like every day for 2 years or more. But in September because of my new job, I found I couldn't get to the Y as often. After struggling to get there for a few months, in March,... Read more

2. Exercise 6 days a week. I'm currently planning six sessions a week, bu... Read more
