Profile of a loser
Saturday, November 18, 2017      7 comments

A weight loser, that is. Honestly, I'm a little scared about these last two weeks of the fall challenge. I'm so close but not as close as I'd like to be. I admitted when the challenge started that I've never made the 5% goal. I'm giving it my ... Read more
An egg or a cookie...hmmm

Choices, choices. There's a leftover box of cookies on the work table. I have a snack planned before I go to the gym on break. Yes, I'd like a cookie BUT...I brought a hardboiled egg for my AM snack. Both is NOT an option. Which will be... Read more

OK, here we go again. Today it's leftovers for department lunch from yesterday's potluck. My strategies for yesterday worked well enough to drop my scale another 2 oz. Eating together as a department cuts into my lunchtime workout, so I got u... Read more

Creative "cheating"

Sometimes it's better to simply have a small portion of a treat than offend the person who made it. OK, so I had a little piece of homemade pineapple upside down cake that couldn't have been any better. To compensate, I got cottage cheese from... Read more
It's never all straight down
Monday, November 13, 2017      6 comments

Weekend washout. I see in retrospect that I should have recognized I'd be vulnerable to overeating after a stressful week with the time change and not feeling rested. In spite of best laid plans, yesterday was one of those days when I wanted t... Read more
What keeps me going
Saturday, November 11, 2017      7 comments

Remember my reasons. First and foremost, I'm tired of being the weight I've been. I'm over it, and I want to stop being "obese", stop being "overweight", and actually be "normal" and at a truly healthy weight for my age and height. I'm l... Read more

I'm glad to be at the end of this day. It's been full of stress both good and bad. I'm not even going into it except my normal routine was anything but from one end of the day to the other, starting with waking up a whole hour too early. Inste... Read more

Another potluck today, and I hope I'm ready. I'm bringing fruit and my own coffee. I've had a substantial breakfast omelette with green onion, mushrooms, rosemary, parsley, veggie hotdog, and almond "mozzarella". I won't be hungry. I will avo... Read more
Friday gleanings

It will be interesting to see what my scale says when I weigh in tomorrow. As I mentioned in this week's blogs, it's been mostly an off week for me. My scale took an upward leap and then started down again so I'm hoping for good numbers tomorr... Read more
You make it a success
Thursday, November 02, 2017      7 comments

I had a dear friend who believed attitude was everything and that much of life is what you make of it. The recording on her phone ended with "You make it a good day." I'm applying that to the fall challenge. It's up to me to make it a success... Read more
