Eat Anything You Want: As Long As It's Green Vegetables, Brown Rice, or Lentils
I took my son to the local water park today and had a lovely afternoon sitting in a lounge chair reading. I was sitting right by a group who was apparently extended family or several families of close friends. One of the women was getting out he... Read more
What I Love About SparkPeople
I'm Baaaaaack!! Wow, I didn't realize that I had so many entries from before!
Anyway, when I started this program I weighed about 145. At 5'4" it was not obese or even officially 'overweight' but it was the most I'd ever weighed in my life... Read more
Oh I Suck.
Alright, so I went off tracking 2 weeks ago for camp. What else could I do? And then last weekend for Mabon (a week late). And to eat the Mabon deserts after Mabon. Again... understandable. Now tonight, I found myself eating for absolutely no re... Read more
Back to Normal (so to speak)
The best thing about camping is that one of my coven mates is a physical therapist. He took a look at my "wooden leg" - showed me an extension to unclamp the guilty nerve - and my legs are back to normal. He recommends avoiding crunches, but I d... Read more
I'm blogging this mostly so I keep track of how long it lasts and when it was. Late last week, my left calf lost all strength. I noticed it at Zumba on Saturday, when I could not lift up my toes... I blamed it on the shoes, so it couldn't have b... Read more
And on we go
So I met my first goal to make 125 by 8/29/08. Or close, I think that I was 125.6. And there I stayed for a while. But, I also started eating near the top of my range instead of near the bottom, and I took 3 or 4 'days off' - like my birthday - ... Read more
Whoo! A Monday with no gain!
Alright, it was only a 2/10 drop... but it was NOT a gain! And this after a weekend of not working out. :-) I am following that goal line right along.... Read more
You Can't Go Back Again
After 3 months of diet, with only one "pizza and beer" night a month or so ago, we went out for pizza to celebrate the end of dh's dieting contest. I couldn't enjoy it. It was sad. Maybe it was just that I didn't like the pizza. Who knows.

Another Monday, Another Rise
Looking at all the bumps in my weight graph, I notice that the minimum is always on a Sunday. Even if I've been in a "bump" all week, I hit the low on Sunday. And then Monday is back up. So, it's no surprise that after yesterday's low of 127.5, ... Read more
Breaking my usual history of only blogging when I'm disgusted, I have to say that I got into the 120's (which I haven't seen for a few years) and have stayed there for 3 days. Granted, it's the high 120's. The very high 120's.
And the othe... Read more
Whooooo... the other side of 130!
Granted, not MUCH on the other side of 130, but it's been a year since I saw a 2 in that 10's place. We'll see if it lasts of if it's one of those preview weights.
I was just analyzing the last time I had a fairly steady loss for a week (a... Read more
Broke out of 132-hell
Yay! Yesterday's strategy seems to have worked. Today I dropped a pound. I'm theorizing that it was from not eating before I worked out, which gave me a (temporary) deficit of calories for the day. Or maybe it was just time. Or maybe I'm jumping... Read more
Still stuck, see? After a low of 131 on 7/31, I've been cruising between 131 and 132 for 7 days! So far, I've been doing everything "right," to no avail. Today it snapped. I skipped breakfast and lunch, worked out in the afternoon (just cardio) ... Read more
Jumping the track again!
Again, I'm stuck for no reason. For 3 days, the scale has been stalled at the same weight. I say I don't care, but in fact, I'm digging out every other scale I can lay hands on to try and get a better weight. This time, I do believe it's added m... Read more
Back on Track
After that surge on pizza and beer night (I still can't get over that large a jump over one lousy day!!) I am finally back on track and even with my goal line.
And about time, too. I've been working out 6 days per week! And for the past we... Read more
