What Works for Me
CHALLENGES. I haven't proved to myself yet that I have made this a permanent lifestyle. I can sum up my entire SP experience like this:
Jan-April 2007: ON program. First time ever getting my weight below upper 140s. Strict, perfectionis... Read more
I will meticulously track and eat 1,475-1,525 balanced, healthy calories per day tomorrow (Wednesday), Thursday, and Friday. On Saturday we are going to an early Thanksgiving dinner, and I won't track but I will make good choices. Saturday nig... Read more
Gotta Do This One Thing...
I MUST spread out my food to make it last longer, take more/longer water/gum/plain old no eating breaks in between, and DON'T eat extra at night.
Even if I do this one little thing, I will be doing better than I have been!... Read more
Without really trying, I have managed to get back down to 147 from 152 in a few days. I do believe it is possible to keep my weight in the 140s while eating basically what I want with lots of exercise. Just a little control in the eating depar... Read more

Below is a copy/paste of what Alamogal1963 wrote on the Weight Watchers Friends Group forum in response to my whining about how hard it is to manage my weight. She has a lot of great points and I am so grateful for people like her who truly too... Read more

Flutie 5K Road Race
Today I ran the Flutie 5K Road Race (proceeds to benefit the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc.) in Natick. The race was 9 hours ago and results still haven't been posted, but I think I was just under a half hour.
Racing is great... Read more
It's already after 10:30 p.m. so I don't have time to blog in detail about my race and my newest goals, as I would like to.
However, I will say that I completed the 31st Annual Tufts Healthplan 10K for Women today in 1:02:16, 10:02 minute m... Read more
Twas the Night Before Race Day
I did another "zoomin' elliptical" workout today - love it - sweat was literally pouring off me, I was at an almost 1,000-calorie-per-hour pace, and more importantly, I was at about a 9.5 minute mile pace. And I still think I can go faster when... Read more
Copied from the Weight Watchers Friends Forum
Hi everyone...I picked up my materials for my 10K today. I got a cool shirt, I am going to feel SO proud whenever I wear it, a chip for timing purposes, a number (I'm #1720!), and a goodie bag with food in it! :) I am so nervous and excited, but... Read more
Zoomin' On the Elliptical
My weight's back up to 147.something and I don't fit into the size 4 pants I bought a week and a half ago. However, my immdediate concern is NOT my weight, although I definitely want to fit into my new pants again soon (and I HAVE to fit into m... Read more
Tonight at the Gym
Unfortunately I made poor choices this afternoon...WAY too much eating, and a nap. Normally I wouldn't have gone to the gym after a "fat" afternoon like that, but since the Tufts is in just 6 days, I knew I had to.
I did legs (2 different ... Read more
LOTS of exercise and LOTS of food
Did over 2 hours of cardio yesterday.
5 minute walking warmup: 1/3 mile
10K in 61:07 (wish it could be consistently under an hour) - this averages to almost exactly 6mph or 10 min/mile
a couple more minutes to bring the treadmill total to ... Read more
Today Ended Up 50/50
Part good, part bad.
Good - I mostly stuck to my nutrition plan. Bad - I added a LOT to it tonight.
Good - I bought and prepared a lot of healthy food including having all my meals planned out for the next 2 days. Bad - I nibbled awa... Read more
What is the Root of my Eating Problem?
This is a question I need to explore...find some answers, and most importantly, find some SOLUTIONS. I've just requested _100 Days of Weightloss_ from the library, at the suggestion of the WW Friends team leader, Kara.
Here are some stats:... Read more
