Five Weeks, Four Days and New Issues
I'm staying on track in a very balanced, moderate way. I've made healthy choices at restaurants twice so far, and I've gone to the gym and made improvements already there - as measured by the way my heart rate rises and lowers, and also I can n... Read more
Six Weeks, Two Days
I weigh 151.0 today. I have lost over 7 pounds in three days since getting back on track.
I also haven't been able to manage a single complete workout, which is usually about 75 minutes. Today I made it through my 45 minutes on the elliptica... Read more
Six Weeks, Three Days Until Jamaica
...and the best body of my life.
Down to 152.6 today and sure to see more losses in the next few days. It is a relief to be officially out of the overweight BMI range once more and will be an even bigger relief to be out of the 150s soon. ... Read more
Jamaica Countdown Begins! (6 Weeks, 4 Days)
I just updated my page...and now it is in writing: I will weigh 130-135 by February 18, 2008, when I go to Jamaica! I have exactly 6 weeks, 4 days to get there. I weigh 154.4 today and if I were to lose weight steadily I would need to lose bet... Read more
My weight is finally moving back in the right direction. Yesterday I was 158 - point - something, today I'm 154.4. I wasn't very hungry yesterday and almost considered not eating all of my 1,615 (or so) calories, but by the end of the day I wa... Read more
Happy New Year!
My page is a bit overdue for a 2008 makeover. For one thing, I am 30 now and my page still says I'm 29. Also, I no longer feel the need to have a history of so many specifics of my 2007 weight yo-yo adventures. I can sum it up quickly and the... Read more
Cozy but boring weekend
It's a winter wonderland out there and I haven't gone anywhere all weekend except the gym yesterday. Will go later today, but who knows if they're even open. There's a LOT of snow out there.
I still weigh 143.8, but I somehow think I look... Read more
Well, the only thing I didn't eat that was on my plan was a 25-calorie diet hot chocolate so overall I ate about 1,900 calories yesterday and today I was up to 143.8 even though I did a full gym workout. Lately, by the way, I have been doing 45... Read more
143.6 yesterday, 143.0 today...no time for the gym the past two days! But eating has been good despite many temptations. Very good, I'll allow myself to say! I feel like I'm in a place right now where minor deviations from plan don't set me o... Read more
I Have Energy :)
I weigh 145.2 today.
Jess wanted to know why I was in such a good mood last night when he came home. I was happy to see him, but I was also happy at how great my workout was. Exercise really does make you feel happy and good - but only if... Read more
Fitness Level Doesn't Yo-Yo the way my Weight Does
So in the past few weeks my weight has been bouncing around a range of 141-155, because my eating has been inconsistent. However, my exercise has been consistent and today I noticed it's paying off. I was going 6.3 mph on the elliptical traine... Read more
So the first party I went to was on Saturday night. I ended up having a few drinks (low-calorie), then a stuffed mushroom, a cookie, and 1 piece of fried plantain. Not bad and I gained 0.2 pounds to 144.2 on Sunday (144.6 early in the morning)... Read more
The wedding pictures are slowly streaming in...a batch was just emailed from my aunt. The above is my parents walking my brother down the aisle...see how HUGE my mother's smile is? Makes me teary just to look at it.
I'm at 144.0 today...f... Read more
"Goal Date" is not consistent with my weight management philosophy
(Before I start - weight today was 146.2 - NICE)
I just read several posts on a very interesting thread with the subject, "Does it help you to have a goal date?" After reading many of the posts, I realized that this question really taps in... Read more
Making Mental Progress
There is no way around it...either you learn it or you fail: It has to be a permanent lifestyle. NOT:
*a temporary diet
*something that is so strict you feel awful doing it (mentally or physically)
I hadn't learned this before. The O... Read more
