Friday, January 28, 2011      9 comments

....but it's still frustrating. On Sunday, my official weigh-in day, I was down to 179.6--a new all-time low. On Monday, it was the same. But on Tuesday it went up and every day since then, and today, it was 182.6, which means a 3 lb. gain. Now ... Read more

Still Obsessing over Maintenance

Thursday, January 27, 2011      6 comments

I can't quit worrying about the effort it is going to take to maintain this weight loss. I know SO MANY people (myself included) who have regained at least part and sometimes ALL of the weight they worked so hard to lose. Every day is a struggle... Read more

It Drives Me Crazy

I do a lot of things wrong, I admit it. I screw up from time to time. BUT...when I have not screwed up, yet get blamed for making an error, or worse yet, made to look like it was my error when it was not, I get UPSET. Yesterday my supervis... Read more

Going Back Would be So Easy...

Thursday, January 13, 2011      9 comments

I know I need to be careful, or I could go back to being that 328 pound woman in a second. I have a skinny picture of myself from 1980 on my fridge right now, it's supposed to be for inspiration. But maybe I need to put a picture of myself from... Read more

A year ago when I started this journey, I decided I wanted to be below 200 lbs. by my 60th birthday. In July 2009, I weighed 328 pounds, but when I went to the doctor for a check-up in December, somehow I had lost 24 lbs. That loss inspired me, ... Read more

HCG--is it for me???

Wednesday, December 15, 2010      5 comments

A co-worker of mine has done the HCG diet/drops several times, evidently you can only do it for so long and then you have to be off it for a period of time, or the drops lose their appetite suppressing effect. I guess you only eat about 500 calo... Read more
