Some rambling thoughts.
I am down to 153.0 today! I guess after two or three weeks at 155-156, my body decided it was finally time to drop 1.2 pounds in one day and then 0.8 pounds the next. Very exciting.
Last night I met up with friends at a bar. The plans ac... Read more
The scale says 153.8 this morning. :) That's the big drop I'd been waiting for! My weight report (love that feature!) shows me right on track with a goal I set in early July to reach 130 by October 30. Even though I had some big ups and downs... Read more
All good things :)
I spent a lot of time today on food preparation and I am all set for a while. I made smoothies for four breakfasts, I made a six-serving bean stew, I boiled five eggs, and I bagged one-ounce servings of walnuts. I planned for about 1,300 calor... Read more
Time to increase calories
I spent about three weeks at 1,200 calories! That's far longer than I thought I'd be able to handle. And I was handling it, just fine...not hungry and as active as I wanted to be. I'm disappointed that I didn't lose more weight (I'm at 155.2 ... Read more
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.)
I'm leaving tomorrow in the lat... Read more
Restaurant Calorie Information
I just came across this article about New York City's new law forcing chain restaurants to post calorie information about their menu items. It was fascinating because ever sin... Read more
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
