Where'd my appetite go?
I never thought I'd be saying this, but I was busy today and forgot about eating! I KNOW I should not make a regular habit of this, but I only at 888 calories today. I figure it's kinda like a day of eating way too much, but in reverse. Once ... Read more
Tuna Noodle Casserole
I just decided I'm going to make a healthed up version of tuna noodle casserole tomorrow. I looked at sparkrecipes for inspiration but in the end I'm going to pretty much invent my own recipe, with whole-wheat noodles, tuna, peas, mushrooms, on... Read more
I noticed at the gym tonight that I am starting to get my nice-looking body back. It's not the 135-pound body I had back when that profile photo was taken, but it's definitely not the overweight body I had for most of my adult (and teen) life, ... Read more
I need to learn to have healthy expectations for my weightloss. I shouldn't hope for losing more than two pounds per week - everything you read says that losing faster than that isn't healthy and is less likely to stay off (except on the Bigges... Read more
I did the happy dance this morning - I was down to 146.6! That was the drop I'd been waiting for. Looking back at my weight graph, I'm pretty sure the gain I experienced a few days ago was from overdoing it on Saturday night, and somehow the w... Read more
Today I've been thinking about streaking. No - not running naked across the quad!! I mean it as a new way of measuring my progress - I want to see if I can come up with a "streak" of staying on track.
My reason is simple. I need to teach ... Read more
Two Weeks to Go
Today's blog will have good news and bad news, and I think the good will outweight the bad.
First, yesterday. I ate a lot earlier in the day than I thought I should, because I was bored. But it worked out okay - I actually wasn't too hung... Read more
Oops - A Little Excess
We have this one friend who seems to cause me to go to excess whenever I'm around her. I spend too much, eat too much, and drink too much. We went out with her last night.
Well, I'm currently a little panicky about money, so I made sure n... Read more
Good Saturday :)
Down to 148.4 today! (after adjusting the scale anyway...)
We slept in soooo late, nice....... til 11:15!! Then I had a HUGE, 800 calorie breakfast - green tea, then coffee, then a 250 calorie serving of veggie lasagna, then a 350 calorie... Read more
I Prewrite my Blog in my Head all Day...
Whenever I have an insight about my weight management, which seems to happen a lot when I'm on track, I make a mental note and start thinking about blogging the idea when I get the chance. Not sure if this is true for everyone, but for me the b... Read more
I hit 149.0 today - yay! But it was on Jess' scale - which tends to have more favorable reads than my own. I'm gearing myself to not be discouraged by seeing something higher on my own scale tomorrow morning - a likely scenario. Not only is i... Read more
So I asked my question on the fitness boards and a guy who's a personal trainer told me that I've probably only gained 2-3 pounds of muscle in a year (although in a later message he said it could possibly be more - up to 8ish). So, I figure, I ... Read more
TWENTY DAYS TIL JAMAICA!!!
Yup, one day less than three weeks to go! Today I weighed 151.0. I am actually doing that obsessive thing where I calculate how much I lost since yesterday (0.4 lb) and multiply that by the number of days left (20) and then subtracting the pro... Read more
I LOVE SKIING!!! I skied about 4 hours on Saturday and 3 hours on Sunday, and only fell twice. I also stuck 100 percent perfectly to my food plan with the one exception of actually NOT EATING one item on Saturday. That 1,800 calorie idea ende... Read more
Shoot for the Stars
The advice you always hear is to set realistic goals that you know you can achieve so you won't be disappointed by being unable to reach a tough goal. But recently, I read something totally different (can't remember where) that totally resonate... Read more
