real hunger vs "head hunger"
Saturday, June 23, 2007      0 comments

I'm working on paying very close attention to the difference between HUNGER and "wanting to eat". They are different but I usually react to them the same. And I've had to admit that, altho all the low carb snacks and treats look good, I tend t... Read more
Working out

I exercised 9 hours week 1 and 9 hours week 2 This week I've already done 5 hours and I have 2 scheduled for Friday and 2 for Saturday. I was hoping to "up" that a bit this week but I didn't. But consistence wins the battles, so I think I... Read more

From a daily email I receive: One of the best side effects of dieting is the purging our bodies receive. Interestingly, our bodies function best when we eat less. We don't overload our systems, and therefore they work better. Our bodies... Read more

I know someone who had HUGE weight loss success in the past and who has really been struggling with about 30lbs. She is over 50, and from stories she's told me, she probably has binge eating disorder (believe me, it takes one to know one) ... Read more

I'm sore today. Yesterday I did a 60 minute spinning class at 5:30 am and then went back to the gym for a 9:15 weight lifting class. My back was aching (not really hurting, just a dull ache) so I came home and did a 25 minute Back Care Yoga ... Read more
weigh BEFORE starting a challenge!

I've been on my 10lb challenge for a week now. Its kinda hard to know if you lose 10 lbs if you forget to weigh yourself! So, I weighed this morning and was very unhappy. My clothes have been getting looser but the damned scale doesn't sh... Read more
Does the number really matter?

I started a challenge Memorial Day weekend. Five weeks til Independence Day & I want to lose 10 lbs. But I never weighed myself. I have no idea what my starting weight was (well, I have an idea but no number) So, it dawns o... Read more
Lifestyle change

Yesterday I stuck with my exercise plan but not my eating plan. I'd made a decision in advance to go ahead and eat Mexican food at a party I was attending. Also had a cheeseburger at my neighbor's house. What makes me laugh is ... Read more
Steps in the right direction
Wednesday, May 30, 2007      2 comments

I've learned something about myself. If I make long-term goals, I overwhelm myself. I started a Memorial Day to Independence Day challenge. That's 5 weeks. That's doable. I see lots of people set very high expectation goals and it ... Read more

Today begins Memorial Day Weekend. July 4 is 5.5 weeks away I need a jump-start. I'm back on Atkins Induction (low carb is the best plan for me in MANY ways). Between today and July 4, I want to lose 10 lbs. I start... Read more
Outside together
Sunday, April 22, 2007      1 comments

After responding to a SP poll about outdoor activities, I realized my boyfriend and I don't do much TOGETHER outside. He's a golfer. I like to bike ride. We're both condo owners so we don't have the yard work and exterior maintenance of house... Read more
My best effort?

One of my teammates posted this: "Are You Giving Your Goals Your Best Effort? Your dreams deserve better than a half-hearted effort. Meet your goals with a weak handshake and they'll soon be waving you goodbye. Since you probably don't... Read more
New month

I lost 2 lbs last month. The negative committee in my head wants me to say "only" 2 lbs b/c I didn't meet their high expectations. I'm working on positive messages. So I tell the committee, "hey, shut up, I LOST weight last month. If... Read more
Got my feelings hurt
Saturday, March 31, 2007      2 comments

Why is it that I allow someone from SP to hurt my feelings? Someone I don't even really "know"? Someone who is admitting to the possibility of being cranky due to a low calorie intake. I guess we just want everyone to like us. ... Read more
