Tuesday, April 12, 2011      4 comments

Saturday, April 09, 2011      3 comments

I need to find a balance for this way of eating. My life style and my foods have been such that I have had rather steep losses and the adjustments (gains). When I began ETL, I was so very strict and simplistic with my meals. I did the breakfast ... Read more

April 8, 2011 (up 1) A normal adjustment to the huge loss (2.4 lbs) reported yesterday, but I was so pleased to see that I had still lost overall. I had aches and stiffness after yesterday’s 2 ½ hour hike. I was so out of shape and the climb... Read more
Catch Up
Tuesday, April 05, 2011      1 comments

April 5, 2011 (down 1.2) Such a big drop, but it was because I wasn’t home, because I was on the go yesterday, because I didn’t have a good choice of foods to eat and because I wasn’t willing to off plan. Therefore, I didn’t eat as much as I... Read more

April Fools, Really?
Friday, April 01, 2011      5 comments

Maybe this is my body telling me not to get so cocky! The scale took a jump up this morning. Not the little jump I have had before. This wasn't huge, but it got my attention. I still believe that I can branch out with my eating to ward off ... Read more

Thursday, March 31, 2011      2 comments

March 31, 2011 (down .6) Seeing that scale move this morning was so reassuring this morning, but I also “felt” like my body was changing. I woke earlier than usual and with no stiff achiness. Dressed to run errands, had breakfast, emptied th... Read more

I have enjoyed four days of consistent weight loss and today I am up .4 . I knew it had to come sometime, but it is still difficult to see that number on the scale going the wrong way. I have been so strict that the least variation caused the ... Read more
