Day 74 - 'New' pants & Why am I so hard on myself?

Wednesday, May 14, 2008      3 comments

Here is the latest photo I took last night. I really was sucking in my stomach in both photos, not just the one on the right. I always see those before and after shots in magazines where it's obvious that part of the "loss" was the person s... Read more

Day 73 - It's All About the Exercise! (retitled)

Tuesday, May 13, 2008      3 comments

For the last few days I've been pulling clothes out of my closet that didn't fit a few months ago. It's an amazing feeling. I'm wearing a blue fitted ski sweater today (it's been cold in So Cal the last few days - I'm tired of freezing!) I tri... Read more

Day 71 - Day after my offical weigh-in & update on step-mother

Sunday, May 11, 2008      3 comments

Well, apparently yesterday's low weight loss (0.4 lb) wasn't real. My weight this morning was MUCH lower than the 179.4 I weighed yesterday. Today it was 176.x (I don't remember what 'x' was). Kind of annoying since it did have a small effect... Read more

Day 70 - Putting Mothers Day in Perspective

Saturday, May 10, 2008      0 comments

Last night I had a serious headache, so I skipped the treadmill and working out. I went to be early and got a very good night's sleep. I wasn't thrilled with my weigh in this morning. It was just 179.4. But at least that's still lower than l... Read more

Day 67 - State of the Diet Address

Wednesday, May 07, 2008      3 comments

I'm doing really well. But I still don't know what the catalyst was this time. I guess if I knew that I could bottle it, sell it, and become rich. What matters is that I'm exercising, watching what I eat, keeping it nutritious, and steadily l... Read more

Day 65 - Tired! & Cholesterol Results

Monday, May 05, 2008      2 comments

I blew it for sleep last night. I finished cleaning at 10 pm and then I got on the computer. I was on the web site for my high school's 20 yr reunion. More and more people are updating their profiles with history and photos. I got totally su... Read more

Day 64 - Speed BLOG

Sunday, May 04, 2008      2 comments

Fast BLOG, no time. Must do dishes, garbage, and clean house. Decided since house is trashed I'll clean on Sunday nights instead of exercise. Will exercise the other 6 nights. Went to San Diego Wild Animal Park today with kids. Great ex... Read more

Day 63 - How did that happen?

Saturday, May 03, 2008      1 comments

As I walked toward the scale this morning I had no idea what it was going to tell me. Had I gained weight due to my recent slacking and eating Thai food last night? Had I stayed the same as last week or lost very little? Or was it possible fo... Read more

Day 61 - Struggling, but overcoming

Thursday, May 01, 2008      3 comments

I've been struggling lately. I feel like I've been going through the motions. But this is where my strict adherence to exercise and food in the beginning is paying off. Even when I'm "cheating" lately, it still hasn't been bad. My cheating... Read more

Day 57 - The 181 is official

Sunday, April 27, 2008      0 comments

The 181 I saw on the scale a few days ago became official yesterday. I didn't get my photo taken last night because I was exhausted and it was either take my photo or get my exercise in. I chose my exercise. My son is going through a stage wh... Read more

Day 55 - Saw 181.0 on the scale this morning...

Friday, April 25, 2008      0 comments

... It wasn't an official weigh-in today, but it was nice to see that number. At this rate I should be in the 170s again either next week or the week after. Yesterday I ate a cookie bar my coworker brought in. It was soooo good I just cou... Read more

Day 54 - Hanging in there, update on Step Mother

Thursday, April 24, 2008      0 comments

Last night I did my 45 mins on the treadmill. I should have upped it to 60 mins because the 2.5 mph 15% incline for 45 mins is getting too easy. Pretty cool considering how I felt about it at the beginning of March. My weight for the last... Read more

Day 52 - Ugh, the pressure's on!

Tuesday, April 22, 2008      0 comments

Today I decided to show one of my coworkers (she actually works for me, but I call all 'my employees' my coworkers) the before and current photo of me from my SparkGallery. It was a whim. She's one of the ones involved in the President's Chall... Read more

Day 51 - Added new photo - definitely seeing progress! Some of my history with weight too.

Monday, April 21, 2008      2 comments

[What's with these photos in the blog being faded out? For a full color version, see my photo gallery.] I have added a new photo that shows my March 8 photo and my weigh-in photo from Saturday side-by-side. It's cool seeing what a differe... Read more
