FIVE POUNDS FIVE POUNDS FIVE POUNDS!
Goal #1: CHECK.
Also, while my waist was slightly larger than last week (less than a quarter inch increase? which I'm not fussed about?), my hips stayed the same (meh; my measuring is suspect all ar... Read more
Last week, no weight lost, but waist was shrinking. I thought it was an anomaly, to be honest.
This week, .4lbs gained, and waist shrunk even further.
I'm happy there's progress, because, hey, my underwear fits better. I just wish I ... Read more
Thinking things through
I desperately need to get my weight under control. This is a post where I talk to myself.
So I've spent the morning pondering my calorie creeps - you know, where I've increased portions or changed what I've eaten to more calorie heavy or l... Read more
Ah, the blame game
...in which I blame everything else for my troubles.
I stepped on the scale this morning and then informed my husband it was mean to me.
Yeah, probably not. It's just a scale. It reports the facts, ma'am.
I blame work stress, bu... Read more
The scale said unhappy things to me this morning.
I reminded myself that I am sick, I stayed up too late, and I didn't sleep well.
However, the waist measuring tape said "good job! Another half an inch gone!"
Also, my skin says "H... Read more
I was significantly more successful last night. Less mindless eating and better choices. My evening snack was a serving of almonds. Still pretty high calorie but definitely a better nutritional punch than the candy from the night before.

Track track track vacation track
Okay, back from vacation. It was a great vacation. I didn't watch what I ate, but I ate only stuff that tasted good. We walked everywhere all day every day. I hit up the gym 3 or 4 times while we were on the ship and the other days, I counte... Read more
I have successfully completed my first week of tracking, tracking, tracking, regardless of whether it was good or bad. And it was some of both. Tracking certainly helps give me pause, when I reach for that... thing.
Like, Monday. I've go... Read more
A not-so-fond farewell to 2012 and open arms to 2013.
2012 was challenging. It started challenging. It ended challenging.
But 2013 is here. I'm not going to make excuses for anything in 2012, because I am taking the opportunity to start over and start fresh.
I have joined the SP Januar... Read more
Rock bottom and yet drilling for lower
I feel like I refuse to get my feet underneath me and get my diet under control.
I feel like the 100 degree temperatures are working against me, though. A few days at the in-laws, where the temps never dipped below 90, and with no workout ... Read more
With a week that starts with me actually curled up on the floor in my office, sobbing, is it any wonder that I didn't do a thing with SparkPeople this week?
I also gave up eating normal meals. I did not give up eating, sadly, but today was... Read more
I just bit my tongue
I've noticed that I'm doing that more - chewing my tongue or the inside of my mouth.
And just today, I paid attention to why. I'm eating too fast. I'm eating out of stress, out of sadness, out of frustration, and out of a sense to control... Read more
And where does the time go!
Vacation was AWESOME. It was warm and sunny and restful. I ate lots of different tasty foods. I started training for a 5k.
Did you ever think about how silly a sentence like that is? "I went to the Caribbean in January and decided it wa... Read more
I was thinking...
Bi-annual dental cleaning tonight. It's been a pretty good run, recently. Few cavities. Had a root canal a couple years ago, but that wasn't unexpected.
I think we can trace my joining SparkPeople back to the time when the cavities slowe... Read more
The scale today said that I've gained .4lbs since before Christmas. Not a success but not a bad thing. I feel so much better - that I'm starting to get the idea of weight loss/portion control/choice management back under control.
Don't ge... Read more
