Somebody brought donuts in to the office today. I'm happy to say that they didn't sound good, and I didn't want one. Even after several people said, "You better get a donut! They're really good!" I just didn't feel like having one.

OMG, I want some chips. Had a small V8, which helped. I know that this is a simply a HABIT - bored at work, eat something. Well, not today! Make a blog entry instead, and reaffirm my goal.

How many times does it take?
How many times do I need to "recommit" before I make progress on my weight loss goals?
As many times as it takes. That's it. There's no magic number, no rule that says you get three tries and then you have to give up.

But I don't usually get nearly enough. Today I tricked myself, though. I usually have a bottle of water at my desk all afternoon, and I sip. Today, when I reached for a sip, I took about three big pulls on the bottle. I drank 3 "glasses" of wate... Read more
Had an OK weekend as far as dieting goes. Not great, but not terrible. For example, a turkey sandwich instead of micky D's.
I discovered some really interesting different kinds of mustard this weekend. Bought one that is blueberry honey... Read more
Had a healthy dinner last night, in spite of being in a rush to get to an appointment. Also didn't snack when I got home. Pretty good.
Had a good lunch today, although I wish I had more. Guess I'll have to add some veggies to fill up bet... Read more
I really appreciate the encouraging comments left on my previous post!
As of right now, I have gotten the evening snacking under control, and look for something else to do instead. I've made more reasonable choices (Subway chicken sandwich... Read more
I can't stand it
Ive gained more weight. I'm the heaviest I've ever been. I only have 2 pair of shorts that I fit into and my one pair of loose, lightweight summer pants are too tight to be comfortable. I don't understand why I keep doing this to myself. I know ... Read more
I really needed new jeans, so I went shopping last night. After realizing I couldn't even squeeze into the largest size in the regular section, I ended up in the plus sized clothing. It was a tiny corner of a huge department store, without a c... Read more

I walked for 15 minutes during my lunch break today. That's two days in a row.
And after lunch, I really wanted a candy bar from the vending machine, but I'm having peach yogurt instead. I think that is a much better choice.
