I got a haircut yesterday. It's a lot shorter than I'd intended, but I kinda love it! Here's how it looked after I went to the gym this evening:

It's been a week, so I figure it's time for a blog even though I don't have much to report. Work is busy. Last Sunday we got up early and went to Wachusett for morning skiing before a lunchtime birthday party, and then we went to the gym. So ... Read more
Gym Research, Spark Friends, and Second Day Below 160!
WARNING - The section on gym research is extremely boring and is written mostly only for me to sort out my own thoughts. However, if you feel like commenting on it, I'm most interested in people's thoughts on these two issues:
1) As a die-... Read more
"Are you going to blog about the magic weight loss cake?"
I'm guessing most people would be rather turned off by wedding cake that's been in the freezer for a year. I know a lot of people skip the tradition altogether, or they just have a symbolic taste and then they throw the rest away. But I was re... Read more
Ahh, I loooove a week off. Yesterday I slept in until 10:15 - I guess I just really needed the sleep! When I woke up I got on the scale and was down 3.0lb from the day before, and that's even after having had a huge slice of cake for dessert! ... Read more
The Monday of February Vacation

Today felt like spring!
I went for my first outdoor run since Christmas this evening! I ran from 5:00-5:45 and it wasn't totally dark, and I was in short sleeves too! This route normally only takes me 40 minutes, but it was an obstacle course today with the puddles a... Read more
Almost too good to be true ;)

The note says: "Happy First Year Anniversary! Love You!! -Love Jess"

Reasons Why I'm Happy Today :)
1. Since I've decided I'm ok just the way I am, that means I'm already in my goal weight range! (Just thinking that way makes me feel more confident.)
2. Despite #1, losing weight still makes me very happy! I finally saw something lower o... Read more
A funny thing has started happening....
My weight has been steady at exactly 164.6 for at least a week now. And yet, I'm feeling more at peace with the whole weight thing now. I'm looking thinner, probably from being less bloated, especially in my face and stomach. Maybe I'll lose... Read more

Four Days' Worth of Reading!
I just finished reading my entire SP blog - from 2006 to now. It took me four days to read the whole thing!
I have gone through many, many ups and downs and come up with revelations - sometimes multiple times, forgetting I'd already figure... Read more
How am I Going to Lose Weight?
Yesterday I wrote that my weight had been sitting at around 168lbs since I've started my Eat Whatever I Want And Track It experiment, and I wrote that if I wanted to lose weight I was going to have to cut calories somehow.
Wellllll....today... Read more
I Just Feel Like Writing
I forgot to mention in my last post that I've started taking fish oil supplements. This decision came after I read an article that suggested fish oil can actually REVERSE heart damage. If it's powerful enough to do that, imagine what it can do... Read more
I've now been Eating Whatever I Want and Tracking It for over a week, and it's going better than I ever could have expected. I'm not sure if it's just the act of tracking what I eat, changes with my cycle, or something else, but suddenly someth... Read more
