What is "Willpower"?
I'm not going to try to take credit for this idea...I actually think I first read about it in Dr. Phil's weightloss book a few years ago. But it makes so much sense, and I'm living it now, so I want to write about it.
Everybody knows you n... Read more
Now I Know it Works
It has now officially been two weeks since I started eating 1,500 calories a day (actually it's usually closer to 1,480). I started two weeks ago weighing 140.6. After one week I weighed 140.8 (but my weight had done this funky jump up thing f... Read more
I'm blogging about my lunch so that I can remember how yummy it was and make it again! In my quest to check out new and exciting fruits and vegetables, I came across a frozen bag of organic mixed mushrooms. (They also had shiitake which I will... Read more

This morning I weighed myself three times...139.4, 138.8, 138.4. I lost a pound in a half hour, heehee! (@Jess')
So I'm almost positive that 1,500 calories is going to work for me.
Tried on 4s and 6s at H&M yesterday. Some 4s fit ver... Read more
Up just a littttttttle bit from yesterday. but it was on the scale at my place and yesterday's was on the scale at Jess', so maybe my weight didn't "really" go up at all.
I actually think I might be more toned in my "problem area" - butt a... Read more

1,500 Feels Good
140.0 today. I knew it was going to be a good weigh-in just by looking at my tummy this morning. :)
At 1,500 calories per day, I don't really get hungry, except sometimes right before bed when it's been a few hours since dinner - and when ... Read more
Wow - Stuffed Today!
It's around 1,500 calories today...same as it's been just over a week now...but for some reason I've been really stuffed today! I started off with a huge healthy smoothie, which actually stuffed me to the point of being uncomfortable. I never ... Read more
My NEW Goals
A little more experienced in the weight management game, a little wiser. I now realize that the ultimate goal really IS the optimum number of calories for feeling good AND controlling weight. Having said that, here are some goals, broken down ... Read more
One Week of 1,500 - Maintained.
Two weighings this morning, one week since I started eating 1,500 calories per day. First was 140.8, second was 141.0. My baseline weight one week ago was 140.6. Miniscule change - basically maintained. I will keep at this level to see what... Read more
This Could be HUGE!!
Is it possible?? Can I eat enough to feel good, energetic, not cranky/hungry, and STILL lose weight??? I was actually up to almost 1,600 yesterday due to an unplanned Bacardi and diet Coke (oops :) ) but this morning I weighed 139.8!!!!!! And ... Read more
1,500 Challenge Results So Far
Day 1: 140.6
Day 2: 142.8
Day 3: 142.4
Day 4: 141.4
Day 5: 141.2 (today)

Day 3 of Challenge
I need to record what's happening with my weight so I can be "scientific" about this. I finally have the patience, control, and willpower to systematically figure out what works best for me, so I am starting to dream up a rather long-term plan ... Read more
Today's my second day of eating about 1,490 calories. My weight jumped up to 142.8 today, but I'd like to see what happens over the course of a week.
I am getting REALLY sick of "being good." How badly do I want to just pop down on the co... Read more
