Tuesday, February 19, 2013      4 comments

My exercise is so-so, but eating healthy and consistently weighing in at my target weight (up to + 2 lbs) for 6 months now! ... Read more

Exercise is a struggle...

Sunday, January 13, 2013      4 comments

I have managed to maintain my weight since August, but I am not exercising the way I want to. I want to walk 3x/week at a minimum, but last week I didn't walk at all! I have walked today and will be recording my workouts until I am back on... Read more

5 months of maintenance .. WOW!

Friday, January 11, 2013      1 comments

I returned from the holidays and weighed in this morning. I was pretty fearful because I had been trying to eat healthy, but I never can trust my judgement. I had to weigh in as part of my commitment to healthy living, but really didn't wan... Read more

Week 1 of Maintenance -- round 2 and it went well :-)

Friday, August 24, 2012      4 comments

I weighed in 1 pound less than last week! What did I do differently than last month when I attempted maintenance and gained 3 pounds? Well, I made sure I exercised and logged my food at least every other day. That is it. Week 1 == success... Read more

Target weight, size 10 and on the road.

Thursday, August 16, 2012      1 comments

I weighed in today and I am at my target weight (again) and wearing size 10 capris. My size 12 capris, from this manufacturer, are too loose. I just can't believe it! I have learned a lot and hope to continue to learn, but self-care really re... Read more

Monday, August 13, 2012      0 comments

.. So, my cholesterol was 212 a year and 40+ pounds ago. Returning to the Dr. today, she told me it was up to 221. This was a disappointment until she told me that the good news is that my HDL is 70 and the ratio is just fine! I GOT A CL... Read more

This can't be maintenance!

Saturday, August 11, 2012      2 comments

Well, I hit my goal weight a few weeks ago and have been weaning from daily logs of food. This is the 2nd week of weight gain, so back to logging! As we say back east, it was dawn on Marblehead. I am new to maintenance. I probably can b... Read more

Shopped for clothes in a store for the first time in over a year..

Saturday, July 07, 2012      4 comments

I don't think I have been purposeful avoiding clothing stores. I have been able to get clothes online and on ebay through this weight loss journey. Who knows, but today I found myself having to shop for walking shorts and sneakers. I then ... Read more

1 pound to go; 2 pounds; hovering on this side of maintenance

Friday, July 06, 2012      1 comments

I have been within 2 pounds of my target weight for over a month. I lose a pound, gain 2 pounds, lose 3 pounds, gain a pound. I am afraid to move out of weight loss and into maintenance. I tend to be an all or nothing kind of gal. I jo... Read more

I work in Higher Education, so spring is award season. For some lucky reason, I won an award last year and this year. May, 2011 -- ... and May 2012 ... Read more

How to handle the unsolicited 'you are getting too thin' comments?

Saturday, April 21, 2012      4 comments

I am struggling a bit emotionally. I ate whatever I wanted today so let's nip this in the bud. This week more than 1 person (ok, 2 but another said something 2 weeks ago) has come up to me and told me I need to stop losing weight. They ... Read more

Been on both sides...

Saturday, April 14, 2012      0 comments

First, thank you sparkpeople. I am still in the 'losing weight' phase and the last month have been kept on track by the check-ins and blogs. I have 6 pounds to go until my goal. I can't believe it. It hasn't been that hard but a few confes... Read more

Size indicators and other random Monday thoughts...

Monday, March 26, 2012      2 comments

As I gained weight in the early 2000's there were little signs along the way that I conveniently ignored. I am getting a train trip down memory lane. I am probably missing some 'size' indicators, but here you go: 1. My feet are losing ... Read more

My goal is to lose 10 pounds by May. This is based on my original schedule set back in August to lose 40 pounds between August and May. I have been losing a pound, sometimes 2, per week with a few weeks of noise added in. I would like to ... Read more
