Sunday, June 24, 2012      2 comments

This is going pretty good. I can make the first 30 days and keep with SP even longer [hopefully until I reach my goal weight]. After my friend Jeri obsessed over WW and nagged me to join it [I don't do meetings], I don't want to bore my friends ... Read more

Friday, June 22, 2012      2 comments

When I started SP 3 weeks ago I had recently done a major grocery shopping and my house was full of food that I had thought was healthy [in moderation] and a few treats. With SP I soon learned that my 'healthy' diet was packed with fat and not e... Read more
I over ate

Okay, yesterday I was really hungry. I've been exercising a lot and staying on track with food. But after an early supper and all the calories I could afford for the day, I wanted an evening snack. But I did that better than I ever have: on... Read more

measuring for success

It's true: fat people can't measure. I have read that overweight people often have trouble estimating sizes of clothing, weights and measurements of food. I had measured my favorite big glass to use for drinking water, then forgot it almost imme... Read more

This is the second time that I have eaten out with a group after Hebrew class. Amy suggested it and lots of [people went to a shopping center nearby with an outdoor food court. Five of us went again this week and I still managed to come in under... Read more

Friday, June 15, 2012      3 comments

I looked up Spark People after I read an article about a guy who lost weight using high-tech apps instead of meetings. I'm not much of a meeting person but I am a techie. Sparks looked like one of the best, but I downloaded 3-4 to check them out... Read more

Here'e the deal. I want to lose weight so that I will feel better, but that lose word is a no-no. So: I want to tone and strengthen and improve my body so that I can have an active lifestyle. That's better! I want my joints to stop hu... Read more
Better Breakfast
Wednesday, June 13, 2012      1 comments

I tend to have a couple of glasses of water and read the emails before I even think about eating. That's okay, that's my style. But I need to eat at least 300 calories when I finally get around to it, and with a healthy helping of protein. Yeste... Read more

I didn't get my workout this morning at the usual time and was feeling kind of lazy. Then around noon it hit me. I wanted to get some exercise! How cool! And how long has it been since that happened? So I got on my bike and rode to the sho... Read more

Finally found a scale to weigh myself. I just guessed at my weight when I started last week. Turns ou that I overestimated it by 5 pounds. And I've lost 2 pounds. At least that's a pretty good explanation for now. Still have a long way to go. Bu... Read more

Having started to get out a bit more, I'm feeling more energy already. I'm also less comfortable sitting around for long periods of time: an hour or two reading or on the computer is fine, but the 5-6 hour stretches I used to do get boring to me... Read more
Shabbat Challenge
Sunday, June 03, 2012      0 comments

Shabbat is always a challenge because it is so long between meals. Torah study at 9:00 means breakfast by 8:15. I'm embarrassed to eat in public, so don't snack between study and service although there is time. After service coffee and bagels ar... Read more
