I haven't had a moment to blog until now. I'm at my brother's place and we're about to bike the MInuteman trail...that lovely, FLAT, paved path that's about 25 miles round trip from his place. Yesterday I was so busy I didn't even eat everythi... Read more

It's late and we just got back from the gym in South Boston... the closest Gold's to my boyfriend's place. I've only been there a few times. They have funky weights like 7.5 lbs in a women's only section. The best thing about it is that most ... Read more

Summer's over already...can you beleive it? I spent most of yesterday preparing...NOT lessons or my classroom or activities, but FOOD. It is truly my priority - that and exercise, which I actually did not end up having time to do yesterday oth... Read more

I was so scared to actually do it. I wasn't going to. I didn't feel hungry. I did a huge cardio workout (the run) and then 35 minutes of shoulder/bicep/tricep strength training at the gym and I'd only had 1,400 calories. But then I felt hung... Read more

Oh what a run. From my parents' house to the town hall and around back. Gorgeous weather. How sad that I only saw three other walkers and two other runners, and two houses with kids playing outside, the entire time! *1 hour, 13 minutes *5... Read more

Drum roll please.... I weighed in at 149.4 today!!! As all of us weight losers know, hitting a new, lower digit in the tens place is always so very exciting, though one weight loss book I read pointed out that's just a side effect of our base t... Read more

It was too late to go to the gym...ended up being a blessing in disguise because my workout was BETTER outdoors. We went to Brookline and walked...and then while Jess had dinner I ran...and then we walked some more! I will do stats separately ... Read more

Yesterday I came up with an idea. I have never, ever done this before and I am hesitant about the emotional effects...but I think I will learn a lot and it will be very healthy for me, too. Here it is: As soon as I am under 150 pounds, swi... Read more

My weight is down 2.0 pounds since yesterday...I weigh 151.6, which is the lowest I've weighed since early June. Soon I will be hitting a milestone - the 140s - which I have not seen since mid-February!!! Yesterday's workout was great - lo... Read more

My weight graph since early July has been a wavy line that slopes downward. My weight has gone down, then up, then down some more...with the overall trend, thankfully, decreasing. The waves have been getting smaller too...closer to a straight ... Read more

I'm still right on track with that sloping red line on my weight graph - the one that has me losing two pounds a week until I hit 130 on October 30. I am confident now in my ability to trust myself to make the right decisions and stay on course... Read more

I just studied my SparkPeople weight report. It started with a few random entries in the high 160s way back in 2006 when I was a member of the site but not really using it. Then there is a sharp decline from January to May 2007 when I was doin... Read more
