One more thought about the weight gain (just can't let it drop, can I?) - I'm wondering if my thyroid has dropped again. This would definitely make weight gain a possibility. I wouldn't have thought of this if I haven't also been really tired ... Read more

Yesterday we took the kids hiking for a couple of hilly miles. They did phenomenally well, and at one point they wanted to climb down a rocky slope. S took them and I took the 'stuff' and went around via the trail to wait for them at the botto... Read more
Very Active Day

I got up early, as usual, and did my CP25K routine... 35 minutes + stretching. Then I decided I wanted to feel it more, so I hopped back on the treadmill and walked (only 2.0mph) backwards. Later in the morning, S came up with the idea of taki... Read more

I hope. I wasn't going to put my "new" weight in the tracker because I kept hoping it wasn't realy. Well, 1 week later and no change and I'm putting in my +6 or +7 pound increase tomorrow (my weigh-in day). And I'm not giving up. I'm wonderi... Read more

freak out about weight gain during TOM - BUT I DO! Why do I do this to myself? There are so many positive reinforcements (BP, clothes fitting, feel better) - why is the scale the one that matters? Last month it happened - this month it's hap... Read more

I had a hypertension clinic yesterday - a 'check up' since my last clinic in November. Since then I had started clean eating, lost 10 pounds, started exercising regularly and started a new medication. Good news is my blood pressure is only not... Read more

Back at work and it was tedious today. But I ate well and have already had 9 glasses of water. yippee! Dinner is BocaBurgers, which I LOVE, my kids'll eat and my husband will eat if he doesn't pay attention. If he thinks its a turkey-burger,... Read more

Both of my kids have eaten crab and lobster before, but it has been a while. I hadn't realized how long until we got to the dinner table and these were their questions... 3 YO - "what are those owie things?" 5 YO - "why is there chicken in... Read more

Well, the crab was yummy. I didn't drown it in butter, like usual. I DID drizzle 1 tsp on the last few bites, but since this is my high calorie day (calorie cycling) it turned out okay. I was, as I expected, over on sodium. HOpe that won't a... Read more

I am officially, intentionally, going over my limit on sodium today. I am having king crab for dinner and just one of those legs has over 1000 mg of the stuff. I'm limiting myself to 4 oz, and limiting sodium for the rest of the day as well. ... Read more
5 pounds?!?!?!?

1.) Five pounds lost this week. 5 pounds. I always have heard that the goal should be 1-2 pounds per week. And I've lost 5. I kept weighing myself the last few days to see if it was a fluke. Apparently not. Even though I've been eating cl... Read more

Friday, January 11, 2008      0 comments

What fun. They make great food, verbally support my lifestyle change, and then continue to serve white noodles, beef stew, etc. So... I'm eating beef for the first time since i started this journey. I am NOT going to turn up my nose at my par... Read more
