I'm living that Japanese proverb. Fall down 9 times, pick yourself back up 10.... 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
Hungry Hungry Hippo
I keep adding more calories, and keep thinking I'm hungry, but I think I can tell the difference between severe can-hardly-move-a-muscle-I'm-s
o-starved hunger and just "I like to eat a lot" hunger. I am a person who LOVES to eat a lot, but ... Read more
I have to admit something. I have NOT been feeling fantastic all the time the past few weeks. Here I am with a great job, my own condo, the best boyfriend I could ever possibly imagine, and now even THINNESS, and I was miserable the past few w... Read more
Ups & Downs
Last night I was feeling tired and hungry even with the increase to 1,300-1,400 calories per day. But I really wanted to have a happy Tale from the Scale this morning, so I just got in bed and read, watched TV, Jess and I watched a couple episo... Read more
I just filled in a worksheet I got from my WW meeting. It's called "Empowering Beliefs."
Believing in yourself makes a big difference. It's very important to become aware of what you believe about your weight-related goals. Your weight-m... Read more
