Great Weekend on the Cape!
Okay, that's obviously not me, but the only pictures I allowed to be taken of myself are on Jess' mom's camera, and she's still on the Cape. The picture is my boyfriend, Jess. Isn't he cute???:)
I really did follow through on my plan with... Read more
Last blog entry for the day, I promise! I'm pleasantly surprised that the advice I've received has been unanimous - coincidentally my boyfriend gave me the same advice that you guys did. I am going to bring all my own breakfasts and lunches an... Read more
Meal Plan - Three Options
I'm not sure what my plan should be this weekend, food-wise, so I am hoping that writing will help me figure it out. (And if that doesn't work, I'm sure someone reading will steer me in the right direction.)

Excitement - Why I Shouldn't Depend on it
Yesterday I was dealing with a bit of a weight gain after a weekend of less-than-perfect eating. It occurred to me that it wasn't going to be particularly fun to step on the scale in the morning because of the higher-than-previous number I knew... Read more
I went to two parties this weekend and I gained about 2.5 pounds in two days. But I'm not disappointed. First of all, I didn't totally blow it. At the first party, I drank red wine and ate a tiny smores (would you call just one a "smore"??), ... Read more
I'm already down to 155.8 - sticking to around 1,200 calories a day and exercising, the weight I've recently gained is just sliding back off. I will definitely increase my calories soon, but I'm hoping to stay strict until I go to the beach nex... Read more
Sticking with it
I just wanted to report that I have been sticking with it - eating right, working out.. I've even started doing a little jogging again! I'm back down to 158.4 and plan on being down a few more pounds by the time I go to the Cape next weekend.... Read more
I did it!!! :)
I am so proud of myself. I set some reasonable goals, not too strict but very healthy, and I stuck to them, on a WEEKEND VACATION no less!!! I had amazing but healthy meals this weekend - lots of salads, grilled fish, only a little carbs/desse... Read more
It's Friday afternoon - the weekend is upon me, and I need a plan to stay on track. I planned what I'll be eating on Monday already. I'll throw it all together in a bag and leave it in the fridge so I'll definitely follow through on Monday.

Back to basics
Before I go to bed each night, I need to be committed to a specific eating plan for the next day. On a regular day, the plan should include specific amounts of specific foods and be prepared in advance. When I'll be having a meal out, commit ... Read more
Frustrated and a cross between jaded and angry
I was doing fine last week until the weekend came. On Saturday I didn't track, but I decided to make reasonably healthy choices without overdoing it. Or so I thought. Somehow I ended up three and a half pounds heavier the next day! I couldn'... Read more
The only way
The only way to manage my weight that could really be both effective and healthy is to be consistent and moderate. It has to be long term, so it has to be something I can do for the long term. I have been exercising only 30 minutes per day lat... Read more
OK... the burst of energy that I was feeling when I wrote my last blog entry didn't last.
To summarize the past few months, I was doing really well from mid-April until early June when I went to Maine for the weekend. I did well the first ... Read more
