I lost 7.2 pounds for the month of September! Hello October! Yes, the month starts on the first Monday of the month-deal with it. If I'd managed to stick to "the program" and lost 7.2 lbs every month this year I'd be weighing in at almost 100lb... Read more

So I'm back again. Weighing 170ish and a size 14ish when I should be 135ish and a size 8ish :-( It took me a long time to get started. I was going to get started in May but then I had a set-back with the asthma and everything. I admit it the... Read more

Four months in and I'm actually starting to see some real progress. My hips seem to have shrunk the most. I wasn't really expecting that as in the past when I've lost weight ... Read more

March was a surprisingly successful month. Surprising because even though I only completed one of the three challenges I set myself for this month I met two of my three goals. I did not use the fitness tracker or the nutrition tracker re... Read more
Nothing Tastes as Good as Being Thin Feels?
Thursday, March 17, 2011      3 comments

I sort of feel sorry for whoever said "nothing tastes as good as being thin feels" because the whole food & bev thing is one of the greatest pleasures in my life and to imagine anyone going without that makes me sad. But seriously, how does bei... Read more

February was one great big giant FAIL. I managed to make it through the December holidays and stay on plan and then BAM! I was hit in the face with Chinese New Year. Chinese New Year is sort of like the Spanish Inquisition in that nobody expec... Read more

Argh I don't look very pretty do I. You would think there would be more of a difference since I went from a size 18 to a size 14. I chose the outfit on purpose because it isn't very flattering. The top is still too small (size M) and I shoul... Read more

I didn't quite reach my goals for January but, they were overambitious. Reach for the stars and you might just hit the ceiling, right? Lost 4.6 pounds in January which is certainly within the "healthy" range of 1-2 pounds per week. I was just ... Read more

Woke up this morning feeling beyond "meh". Didn't feel like working out at all. Had a big bowl of generic rice crispies and felt like having another so I did, along with some ginger snaps and a fiber one bar. Breakfast of champions. We... Read more

If you live in New York City you've seen the ad. A woman is sitting all askew at the bottom of the subway stairs, drunk and unable to get up. The caption says "Two drinks ago you could still get yourself home". ( Read more

I had no business buying those biscuits in the first place. Yes, the tin was very pretty, yes they were half price and yes it is the civilised thing to have tea and biscuits on hand when someone pops over, but the bottom line is a big tin of gi... Read more

Got on the scale this morning and looked down after it settled on a number and I swear I saw 184.0! Woo-hoo! Go me! Happy Dance Time! I'll be at goal by my birthday (April) instead of Thanksgiving! Bent over to pick up the scale to put it aw... Read more
