I had no idea how deeply I can be affected physiologically by my emotions. I wasn't hungry again today. I'm ALWAYS hungry, so two days in a row of having no problem eating practically nothing?! It HAS to be related to how excited I am about J... Read more
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
