On Track Today
Last night I planned out what I was eating today (except dinner). I stuck with it. I have a new rule, NO EATING WHAT'S IN THE TEACHERS' ROOM!!! Today I JUST SAID NO to some kind of banana nut bread or something plus a coffee cake. My body d... Read more
I think I'm sick....I have a painful sore throat and feel tired. Unfortunately my appetite seems to have increased....and I mean the "I want to eat even though I know I don't need to" kind of appetite. Even though I'm supposed to be on Block I... Read more
I could write a book on MAINTANENCE!
Why AREN'T more books dedicated to maintanence alone? It's always an afterthought chapter added to the end of a diet book or program. In some ways, it's even MORE important than the weightloss program itself, because weight loss is temporary. ... Read more

The past few days every time I tried to post a blog entry I had technical difficulties. Luckily those entries were never very long. I had a few hard days on Monday-Wednesday and I ate too much, but of course I learned from the experience:

I actually got to go out and have a life AND get my weight back to 136 this weekend. I had 2 glasses of wine last night and hit the dance floor!:) I tried to figure out my points using the Eat Wisely book, but I redid it when I came home on SP... Read more
After a few rocky weeks I am settled into a somewhat new routine and very pleased with my new "weight management program." My new goals are:
*energy, happiness, and good mood
*any weight in the 130s will make me happy (though I have to a... Read more
Relieved that it's Working and Excited for the Weekend!
Down to 138.2 today. It feels great to be losing again. It feels even better to have energy and feel great while doing it. I haven't been planning out meals. I have low sugar oatmeal packets, Total, Fiber One, and cans of tuna here at work. ... Read more
Today I was at 138.8 (accidentally typed in 138.3 on SP), which is LOWER than I was on Sunday morning before the binge. Yay! That means it only took 3 days to lose the weight from eating THE MOST I would EVER eat. That means that at any point... Read more
Smartest Words Ever: "Lifestyle, NOT a Diet"
I am very pleased with myself. I ate only about 850 calories before dinner, so I was able to go out to a restaurant and eat a real dinner, but in a very healthy, moderate, reasonable, "lifestyle-not-a-diet" kind of way. I had iced tea to drink... Read more
I am back down to 139.8! That is only 0.8 pounds higher than before my Sunday binge, and it only took 2 days of strict dieting, though I don't know how much I lost because I was too scared to weigh myself on Monday after the binge, so I don't k... Read more
So today I was at 141.2. I am so glad I made myself guess at what I was going to weigh so that I wasn't too disappointed when I saw what my real weight was. I had guessed 142 so I was actually HAPPY it was 141, even though that's about 6-7 pou... Read more
Make It or Break It Point
I've read that 95% of people who lose weight gain it back, and I can see why. I seriously think that I am at a point now where I could go in two very different directions - I could either slowly revert back to the overweight old me, or I could ... Read more
Hungry Hippos Can't Run Like Me!
WHY was I beating myself up over being hungry? Athletes don't feel guilty about the food they eat to increase their performance! Here's the thing. I am officially ready to start maintanence. My weight is well within the healthy BMI range, I ... Read more
