I was so shocked that I've been dropping 2 pounds a week. this week I hit the wall and struggled to stay where I was at last weigh-in. a few days ago I was a 1.5 pounds heavier! I was kind of sick last Friday, had company Saturday and didn't ... Read more
Initial goal reached
Now I weigh what my driver's license says I weigh. Clothes fitting much better, too. Took an extra walk today because it is nice and because I was afraid I'd start eating everything in sight if I stayed in the house.

Tracking going well
Now that I've committed (resigned might be a better word) myself to tracking everything I eat, I think things are going well. My gray pants do not cut in the waist like they did last time I wore them. I have also been weighing myself daily and... Read more
I've creeped up to the 180's again. My clothes hurt and I don't like the way I look or feel. Since its January and the whole world is dieting, or at least talking about dieting this seems like a good time to jump in again. After a couple of d... Read more
Well, I seem to have stalled the rate of gain that I've sustained since Thanksgiving. I'm down half a pound since I last weighed myself on Dec. 17. Lord knows I probably actually started at a higher weight than I recorded since I didn't weigh ... Read more
In the deep midwinter
I have gained over 15 pounds since stopping WW last spring. Most of that has been in the last few months. And now its Christmas, which is usually good for several pounds of weight gain. I'm still exercising each morning, but food intake is mo... Read more
Knee improves--she walks!
After the initial morning stiffness yesterday, my knee felt pretty good all day. I slept wonderfully and went for a long walk this morning. I'm definitely better. I wish I knew what caused this issue in the first place, though, so I could avo... Read more
I was down almost a pound this week and I haven't exercised since last Thursday. Friday I was getting over the UTI, Saturday and Sunday we had company, and every morning since then I've been dealing with a bum knee which is especially stiff and... Read more
Annoying health issues
The exercise has been a problem lately. Late last week I developed a UTI and decided not to work out because I still felt a little punky and feverish. Then over the weekend I did something to my knee. It was fine when I went to bed Friday nig... Read more
Work has been pretty busy so I haven't had time to post much. Now that I have a few minutes, here's what has been on my mind...
The glacier finally retreated and I started my morning walks again this week. I missed being outside! I jog f... Read more
A quiet month
I haven't posted for a long time, nor even peeked in at SP, but I have stuff to report today!
New weight! I'm finally down into new weight loss territory again. I got my 40-pound star at WW today, which was my goal for the week. I lost a... Read more
A new low
I'll wait until after my WW meeting at noon today to update my weight ticker, but the number I saw on the scale this morning was VERY encouraging. I think the chocolate cake is now officially history. We won't talk about the two birthdays comi... Read more
Day of Reckoning
According to Wii Fit, I've gained 3.5 pounds since last Friday. Gulp. OK, I knew that was probably coming. I don't think its all cake, though, since I've got the usual PMS weight gain going on this week, too.
I disposed of the last corne... Read more
Monday was such a bad day, and I sabotaged myself big time further compounding the horrendous-ness of it all.
Weather got awful, so an important medical appointment had to be postponed, which is causing me some stress, but I'm dealing with ... Read more
Graduated from "grannies"
A diet strategy that has worked for me many times is to buy clothes that are too small and then diet to fit into them. I did this again last fall when I picked up a pair of jeans at Wal-Mart that were a size smaller than what I was currently we... Read more
