I Couldn't Do This Without Jess
Yesterday Jess made my lunch for me with ingredients I specified, but he made it taste so much yummier than I could have. (I think the key is the spices he included in with my chicken and stewed tomatoes!)
Just now he lovingly stopped me fr... Read more
_Mindless Eating: Why We Eat More Than We Think_ by Brian Wansink, Ph.D.
I wish I had "blogged a book report" on all the weight management books I've been reading (You: On a Diet; Eat, Drink, and Weigh Less; Secrets of a Former Fat Girl; Winning After Losing, maybe even others I can't think of at the moment??), but I... Read more
Ann Taylor Loft again, of course. All sale stuff was buy one, get one half off. I got khaki and black capris (former wide leg, latter fitted), three short sleeved, V-neck sweaters identical except for the colors, and a pair of heels. Pants ar... Read more
Back to School Challenges
Probably food is going to be the biggest challenge. It takes a ton of time and effort to plan and prepare all my food at night after a long day of working and the gym. And every other day, after I do all the food preparation, I have to then dr... Read more
My September Goals
At my WW meeting today I received a September calendar with a different tip or question on each day. 9/1 says, "A new month brings new opportunities. What is your weight loss goal for September?"
Great question especially for someone like... Read more
Went to the gym after school today...one day done, 184 to go... :)
I was thinking about taking it easy at the gym because - poor me - I actually had to get up when the alarm went off and be at work all day. But I decided I'd just see what ... Read more

Another Sunday, Another Day for a Weightloss Checkin
137.8 last Sunday, 136.4 today. (After my last blog I went back to bed and just weighed myself again. It kinda breaks my rule from a few entries ago about one weigh-in per morning though.)
That is 1.4 lb down in one week. Granted I didn'... Read more
Clarification - I Don't Run Marathons ??
Two people now have left messages on my page congratulating me for the marathons I'm running. I haven't ever even considered running a marathon. 5K I've done; 10K I'm considering. A marathon is 4 times longer than a 10K and I think a 10K is w... Read more

I WILL Stay in Control
Today I am taking a weight management field trip! I am going to a wedding and I am going to practice all those things I have read about so many times about how a weight watcher should handle a social event where there'll be food. As a pre-wedd... Read more
Slow Bike Ride
After yesterday's immense amount of exercise I just wanted to do a little something today, so I went for a slow bike ride. Very humid though, so I still got sweaty. Felt a little worn out, maybe because I couldn't sleep very well last night, m... Read more
Let's Try Not to Be So OCD About This
My doctor did tell me she suspects I have OCD once because I was flipping out over long-shot potential medical conditions (long story). Now I know I'm healthy though, and I don't do that anymore.
But I am getting a bit OCD about my weight ... Read more
A Couple Things to Add to Last Entry
First my dinner...I used the nutrition tracker to find the closest matches I could to what I ate at the restaurant, and it's telling me I only had 1,036 calories today!!! (I try to eat 1,500 per day.)
Second, I just learned about a REALLY u... Read more
I have been on this incredible high all day. I can't get over how fantastic I feel. I was feeling a bit guilty about not working out yesterday, and today was weigh-in day, and I'm not working this week, so I decided today was going to be super... Read more
