Woo Hoo!!!

Wednesday, December 01, 2010      6 comments

Well, I got on the scales this morning. Apprehensively, of course. I LOST 6 POUNDS since the last time I weighed! I was (and still am) so totally psyched. I wanted to whoop and holler, but didn't think my family would appreciate the 5 am wake up... Read more

Going Strong

Tuesday, November 30, 2010      2 comments

Everything is going great. Still have yet to get back on the scale. I am apprehensive, of course, but I have seen more results from the measuring tape, so I am not going to focus on the scale! Busy day today. And first basketball game for m... Read more

Feeling Good Again!

Monday, November 29, 2010      2 comments

I didn't like myself much over Thanksgiving. My kids and husband tried to help, but I resented it a bit. Especially when my husband asked me if I had tracked the chips I ate while he gorged himself.... (I have read on here that men think their e... Read more

I got a HRM

Sunday, November 28, 2010      1 comments

Well, I got a heart rate monitor. It actually said I was burning more calories than my treadmill. While not an expensive monitor, I did have to enter my sex, weight, height, age. I read that the monitors are more accurate than the exercise machi... Read more

I am back.

Saturday, November 27, 2010      4 comments

Well, it is so good to be back home. I enjoyed my time with my family, but "there's no place like home." Did I do as well as I had hoped? No. Am I discouraged? No. Do I forgive myself for eating Ro-Tel dip and move on because today is a new... Read more

The Challenge Ahead.

Wednesday, November 24, 2010      6 comments

The next couple of days will be a challenge for me, just like so many people on this site. I am focusing on portion control, and staying away from the high fat foods, like the Ro-Tel dip my mom always makes. I could eat my weight in that stuff. ... Read more

Better Day Today!

Tuesday, November 23, 2010      3 comments

I am taking everyone's advise to heart and stepping away from the scale. I am still logging my food and exercise. Nothing else about my journey is gonna change. In two weeks (if I can be that strong) I will step back on the scale. It was getting... Read more

Another dissappointment....

Monday, November 22, 2010      6 comments

For a week I have been battling this up a pound, down a pound, up a pound, etc. I was hoping that by today, my body would have figured out that I want the scale to go down! I am so glad that I took the body measurements. At least I can see that ... Read more

Lazy Sunday

Sunday, November 21, 2010      2 comments

Church this morning, then lunch. My husband wants to work on the landscaping around the pool, so that is what we will do. Then cut a load of firewood. We are so far behind! It does feel good to not be worn out by the slightest activity. I s... Read more

Well, I am now back to my weight that I was on Monday. Wow, thought it would never happen. So much for the 2 pounds a week streak. I was hoping for 10 pounds a month, but I will be okay if it is a bit slower than that. As long as I am making pro... Read more

Finally...

Friday, November 19, 2010      1 comments

Well, instead of staying the same, I finally lost half the pound that I have gained. I did take some measurements, and I have lost 4 inches, so as long as I have a loss in some area, I am ok. I would just like to see that scale move a bit faster... Read more

No Loss

Thursday, November 18, 2010      3 comments

No loss again this morning. I was just sure there would be. My scale measures in 1/2 pounds, and it flickered between 211 and 210.5, deciding 211 was more it's style. I am going to weigh again in the morning. Cait told me I should stop weighing ... Read more

What the Heck?

Wednesday, November 17, 2010      3 comments

I was so good yesterday, but added yet another 1/2 pound this morning. I am not entering daily gains, only losses. Come tomorrow I will post my weight no matter what, as it will have been a another week on SP, and you are supposed to weigh once ... Read more

Still truckin'

Tuesday, November 16, 2010      3 comments

I am still truckin' on with this weight loss. I did have a smaller portion of the traditional meal served last night. Lots of sodium. I gained half a pound, but I know it was the salt. I did my best to estimate my intake, and I was still under f... Read more

Today will be a true test!

Monday, November 15, 2010      2 comments

Well, today is the annual PTO Harvest Dinner at my kid's school. We feed about 400 people, and it is the only fundraiser we do. I baked 4 double batches of cornbread, a 22 pound turkey, 2 cakes, and 2 batches of cookies. All with no cheating. No... Read more
