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
First Day of 1,600 Calories - So Far a Success...
It's 5:30 p.m. on a school day and I still have about 100 calories left to eat - a grapefruit and a cup of diet hot chocolate. This has been really nice and there hasn't really been a single moment all day when I felt overly hungry or wished I ... Read more
Should I Eat More?
Down 4 pounds today...155 yesterday, 151 today. It's coming back off as fast as it came on, so far. I've stuck faithfully to my planned 1,500 calories, 45 minutes of cardio, and about a half hour of strength training per day both days since I ... Read more
The Food Addiction Strikes Back
I gained 14 pounds in San Francisco - from 141 to 155. I had my scale with me and saw my weight going up, but didn't do anything about it. I guess I knew I could lose it when I came home and I STILL associate celebrating with food - oh do I ev... Read more
Day 8 - Last Day at Home
142.4 today. So there's no chance I'll be leaving for San Francisco in the 130s, but that's okay. I fit into my dress, and I can get into the 130s when I get home. I am down 0.4 pounds from yesterday.
I don't have a plan yet for how I'll... Read more
