Week 11 - Success I So Needed
I didn't weigh in last week because it was sort of a "so-so"/not-so-good week, but today...today is very good. In spite of it my T.O.M (I began Sunday), I'm registering a loss today and am finally in the 240s! Well into the 240s!
SW - 259... Read more
Week 9 - Recommitment
OK, so I've skipped a couple of weigh-ins and really haven't been as successful as I would have liked to. I truly intended to go back to work noticeably thinner and just feeling better. The fact is, however, I've only lost 8 lbs since February... Read more
Week 8 Weigh-In - Vacation Follow-up
I almost didn't weigh in today. After all, I spent last week in glorious Mexico and pretty much ate and drank my heart out. In fact, I wasn't as bad as that, but I didn't really hold back either. Still, I was pleasantly surprised this morning... Read more
Week 7 Weigh-In....Gains aren't as much fun...
As I expected, I'm registering a 2 pd gain this week. No surprise really. A little too much celebrating, I suppose. I'm not too upset though. After all, it was my birthday. But I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't disappointed - particularly... Read more
Loss is Good - Weigh-in 6
Time to weigh-in again. This has been a fairly good week, but I still wasn't altogether perfect this weekend. I did, however, track my food and found that I went about 300-500 calories over my limit. I almost wish I had those flex points WW h... Read more
Week 5 - Weigh In: No Change...
No loss again. Can this be because I had my period this week or is it because I'm not at all careful during the weekends? I mean, I don't go nuts and consume a bag or chips or anything, but I don't track and I do eat things I generally steer c... Read more
Measurements - 1 month in
It's officially been a month since I began my weight loss adventure (and - eeek- since my sabbatical began) and now it's time to track my measurements.
Bust: 46.5 (-3 inches)
Waist: 45 (-.5 inches)
Hips: 55.5 (no change)
So ov... Read more
Week 4 Weigh In
Well, I sustained that loss from last Friday and even added to it (even though I was bad on Saturday when Marilyn and I went to an incredible Italian pizzeria). Here goes:
Loss: 7 pds!
Good! Very good! Part... Read more
Truly a Wardrobe For Every Size
Since I'm off work for the next few months, I figured I'd do what I could to not only get my body in order, but get my life and house in order as well. For the record, I am not the most organized person. In fact, I love what things look like w... Read more
Hard to believe but...
So I just woke up and suddenly found I "felt" lighter. It's a weird feeling, waking up and just feeling as though you weigh less, but that's how I felt this morning.
Sure enough, when I weighed myself I was shocked to discover I weighed 25... Read more
Weight Gain: A setback, not a destination
Can't say I didn't see this setback coming, but it's disappointing all the same.
Total Loss: 2.5
That means a gain of two pounds after injuring my knee last week and not really watching what I ate ... Read more
I've somehow buggered up my knee.
In fact, there's little "somehow" about this. I know exactly how I did it. I over-exerted my knee, stupidely pushed through the pain and now I'm in agony.
My knee has always hurt - particularly after... Read more
Week 2 Weigh in
In spite of a not-so-great weekend, I'm still registering a loss this week:
A pound isn't great on week 2 and I'm not exactly celebrating the loss, but I'm celebrating the fact that I didn't... Read more
OK, so the weekend wasn't good - rather, my food choices weren't good, but the weekend was great.
On Friday night, we went to a delicious Brazilian BBQ restaurant with all you can eat red meat. I filled up on the salad, but I did have the r... Read more
Temptation...Dealing with it
Hopefully, this weekend won't be too much of a binge-fest although it is my husband's birthday today and Superbowl on Sunday, so I'm worried of course.
Beyond that, I haven't been able to work out for the last two days. Yesterday, my dog ha... Read more
