Happy Valentine's Day! :)
I had absolutely no candy today. With my trip to Jamaica just four days away, I wasn't even tempted. A few students gave me candy and I gave it all away. I also asked Jess if we could celebrate without food, which was fine with him. He had s... Read more
My Appetite is Back
I knew it couldn't last forever. After three days of eating very little, today I'm back to eating everything I've planned (about 1,430 calories) and wishing I could eat more (but I won't!). In response to what my body is telling me, I've plann... Read more
I Just Read my Blog from June 2007 to Now
And boy is my head spinning. I went through more fresh starts, more revelations that I'd finally "found the answer," than I'd even realized! More times watching those 140s drop back to 130s and then later those 150s dropping to 140s...UGH. An... Read more
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
