Buckling Down to Prevent the Slippery Slope
I just made my third and final* appointment at the GWU weight management lab. My last DEXA scan and consultation with the RD. I had the first two in a month, but then I started traveling and since that third session doesn't expire I wanted to ge... Read more
Choo Choo ... Back on the Train
I had a rough 3 weeks with too much travel and therefore too much food and booze and not enough routine and exercise. And the scale shows it.
Overall, it's not that bad. I'm basically up about 2 pounds. But given it takes a month (if I'm l... Read more
Benefits of a Proper Trainer
I've been around the block enough times to know the difference between a good trainer and a bad one. I've had bad trainers. The ones who took a 10 hour course and signed on at the local gym who just hand you a weight and call it a day. The ones ... Read more
My Mysterious Body
I am so confused by my body sometimes. I went on a (much longer, granted) vacation and came home up about 3 pounds. One came off, but the scale remained up. Then I left again, only for four days this time, and truly ate horribly, and came home h... Read more
The Good, The Bad, and the Protein-y.
I'm back from vacation and up about a pound and a half. Honestly, I'm good with that as I thought it'd be worse.
What I did well:
1. I did the Grouse Grind!
Length: 2.9 kilometres (1.8 miles)
Elevation Gain: 853 metres (2,800 fe... Read more

I lost 3.6 pounds in the last 4 weeks after this new diet change. My efforts haven't been perfect, but I've really cleaned up a lot of my habits lately, and I'm feeling really good overall. There's definitel... Read more
In The Groove ... Mostly
I go back to my new RD for a 4-week checkup on Thursday. I shared yesterday that I've managed to lose 3.6 pounds this month which is a holy miracle, so I suppose that means something is working. Digging into my handy stats via the app, I realize... Read more
My Weird Brain ... But a GREAT WEEKEND!
So, a few things happened over the weekend that make me think I might be slightly crazy. But for once in a good way? hahaha
1. The scale has be... Read more
Thing one: I have 15 days until I leave for vacation. (Yay!)
Thing two: I have been going over my calories way too many days lately.
Therefore, I have 15 days to GET MY ACT TOGETHER. Honestly, I can do anything for 15 days.

Yesterday, I shared that I'm officially (by 0.2 pounds, but whatever) the smallest I've ever been. I was trying to think back to when I might have been this size growing up and my best guess is somewhere around 5th grade. That seems crazy, doesn... Read more

A few months ago, I decided to go to a Registered Dietician for some diet help. Part of the reason I went was because they offered metabolism testing and I wanted to know my resting metabolic rate (RMR). I've been operating on the assumption it'... Read more
There's A Dent In My Fat Roll. I Love It.
This definitely falls into the TMI category, but since I presume:
1. 97% of the people on this site are women, and
2. 50+% of the women also have fat rolls, and
3. 100% of us are on the weight loss struggle bus ...
I am sharing my... Read more

Bad Attitude, But I Went
Some days my heart just isn't in class in the morning. I've been really sore since Monday -- everywhere, really, but particularly in my butt. I almost slept in this morning, but eventually got my sore butt out of bed and headed in.
Trainer:... Read more
