Finally found a cold cereal I like.
Haven't eaten the stuff in decades other than a reluctant bowlful here and there.
And wouldn't you know it, it's HUGELY fattening!
Quaker Harvest Crunch with Raisins and Almonds is freaking awesome.
Probably b... Read more
Bad month is bad.
Had a weigh-in at the doc's last night; I've gained back 6 lbs. I'm not happy about that but I'm not surprised.
Lots of reasons why the last 6 weeks didn't go well, diet-wise.
Lots of excuses. Loooots of snax and unhealthy eating and not nearl... Read more
My Weight Loss Goals
I used to have these on my profile page, but it was long and awkward looking, and I've stopped and started so many times that some of the goals became obsolete over time.
So here goes:
Starting weight: 269 lbs
Current weight: 259 lbs
Goal weigh... Read more
Stop. Start. Stop again. Start again.
Ok. Week 2 of attempt eleventy kerbillion to lose weight and get healthy.
So far so good.
I'm back working with my weight loss doctor and following his advice. I'm eating about 90% correctly; sometimes I'm cheating a little bit, but at least I o... Read more
Back on track.
This past weekend was a sh*tshow of eating ALL THE THINGS due to mondo health-scare-related stress.
Which continued up until last night. Froyo for late-night dessert? What was I thinking?!?
But I'm back on plan today, and the hub appears to be ... Read more
Adding in exercise to my daily routine
I wanted to take this weight loss plan thing slowly this time around. I have a terrible habit of going all-in and then burning out within a few weeks or months.
To that end, I haven't added exercise into my new routine. Yet. This weekend changes... Read more
Sabotage much? Grrrr. .....
My hubby and I are not skinny creatures that subsist on Ryvita crackers and the occasional vodka, dahling.
We are both considered medically morbidly obese. Which is a horrible thing to say to someone. It brings to mind that show, My 600 Pound Li... Read more
Naughty. But worth it. I think.
I've apparently been too restrictive on my breakfast and lunch portions; I was faint with hunger by the time I got home.
Not a good sign.
So...after running an errand with the Hubster, I stated we were going to Swiss Chalet and that was that.
I... Read more
I have decided to subscribe to the notion of having an occasional "cheat" day or meal. Even though I don't really believe in allowing myself to eat ALL THE THINGS, but only once a week or whatever. But sometimes it seems to relieve the pressure ... Read more
To Fitbit or not to Fitbit?
I'm on the cusp of buying a Fitbit brand fitness tracker, probably by this Saturday.
Does anyone have any feedback or recommendations?... Read more
For the lulz
Today was a challenge. A near-full day of work, then rushing off to university to get in some last-minute studying before a big exam this evening.
...have I mentioned that I stress-eat?
I had to prep enough healthy food for essentially 2 days... Read more
Finnegan Begin Again
Ok. Please tell me this time I'm actually going to put my money where my mouth is and DO THE THING.
...the thing of course being lose weight and get fit...
I really like SparkPeople, and I'm thrilled with the improvements to the app, so I'm pre... Read more
Third Time's The Charm...Right?
Ok, I've tried to stick with Sparkpeople twice in the past, and wandered away (ooh, shiny!) twice. I lost weight, and then slowly it crept back when I wasn't paying attention to what I was sticking in my mouth.
This has got to stop. it is... Read more
Embarassed and Angry at myself today.
I can't believe all that hard work I did last year to get healthy and fit is *GONE*. I am back up to my original weight, and have added a very disturbing pot-belly to my already ample curves.
Interesting note: While I know that Morgan Spur... Read more

Fall Down, Get Up...Fall Down, Get Up...Fall Down, Stay Up.
It's been a weird couple of months here at Casa del Chubbo.
It's been hotter than the inside of a crematorium lately, and I've been working all sorts of hours at my job.
As I had stopped doing my "official" exercising and sensible eatin... Read more
