Comfort of the Elusive Third Kind

Tuesday, June 08, 2010      8 comments

I wrote earlier about physical comforts of goal weight -- sitting and breathing more comfortably -- and emotional comfort -- just feeling more comfortable "in my skin." But there is one more kind of comfort I'm looking for. This one I've yet to ... Read more

Comfort of a Second Kind

Sunday, June 06, 2010      8 comments

I wrote yesterday that goal weight makes it more comfortable to sit, confident that I will have enough space, and keeps me more comfortable, sweating less and breathing easier, in the heat. There is another kind of comfort that I find at goal we... Read more

The Comfort of Goal

Saturday, June 05, 2010      7 comments

I wanted to lose weight to be healthier and to look better. I never really thought about comfort as a reason to lose weight and get fit, but it is definitely a reason I want to maintain my weight loss and my fitness gains. Seats are so much... Read more

Talk About Mindless Eating

Friday, June 04, 2010      8 comments

I made it three whole days with absolutely no artificial sweetener. (I have been a Splenda-Equal-SweetnLow-saccha
rine "addict" for more than 35 years.) Today my hubby did the grocery shopping as usual. He came home with sugar free choc... Read more

Read the Label

Thursday, June 03, 2010      6 comments

I know you should read labels and I thought I did. But on two occasions recently I found surprises, not of the good kind. Pillsbury Grands Fat Reduced Whole Wheat biscuits that come in a refrigerated can are what I tried to get my husband t... Read more

Raisins in My Oatmeal

Wednesday, June 02, 2010      15 comments

I am celebrating a big accomplishment! A streak of one day may not be particularly impressive to most people, but I think this one may be significant. I did something yesterday that I haven't done for at least 35 years. I went the entire day wi... Read more

Don't Burn the Beans

Monday, May 31, 2010      8 comments

The good news is I got 9 hours of sleep, awaking without an alarm, feeling very energetic. The bad news is that I forgot about my beans cooking in the crockpot - no salt added pintos. Instead of cooking 6 hours, they were on high for 15 hours. Y... Read more

Hungry Week

Sunday, May 30, 2010      7 comments

All last week I was hungry -- extra hungry. I actually went over my calorie range 4 times -- 3 times just a little and I balanced it with extra activity; one day I overate at least 400 calories. Yesterday, though, the extra hunger wasn't there. ... Read more

5K Commitment -- All Wet

Saturday, May 29, 2010      7 comments

Today my WW meeting was all about exercise and activity. I found myself re-energized and motivated to take it up a notch. I went to the Y from WW and did my hour long Zumba class, my strength training machines, and then another 25 mintues on the... Read more

Amazing "Sweet" Vegetables

Thursday, May 27, 2010      11 comments

It was an amazing revelation. As I enjoyed a fresh ear at supper last eve, for the first time I understood why they call corn "sweet corn." As I've cut back my sugar and sweetener I can begin to taste the sweet in corn, peas, and carrots. Someti... Read more

Fresh Fruit Plate

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      5 comments

Today for lunch Natalie and I each had a fresh fruit plate. We enjoyed low fat cottage cheese with blueberries, strawberries, cantaloupe, and grapes. It was truly delicious and enjoyed by both of us. Somehow it seemed very special today. I ... Read more

Food Tracking for Maintenance

Saturday, May 22, 2010      9 comments

I have tracked my food all but maybe 10 days since December 1, 2008. I used to track with Weight Watcher paper journals. Now usually I track online @ SparkPeople. For a while I did both. When I go visit my mom in S Dakota (her summer home) in Ju... Read more

I Prefer to Eat More

Thursday, May 20, 2010      9 comments

I had a minor injury and had to cut back my exercise to allow my hip to heal. So I had to cut back my calorie range target in order to maintain my weight. My hip is now healed and I have added the calories back in. I know without I doubt t... Read more

Buffet Success

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      13 comments

I attended a buffet today. Several people commented that it was a difficult place to eat wisely. Not for me. I passed up the plain white dinner rolls. As far as I'm concerned they are nothing special. And then I didn't need the butter. So t... Read more

Learning from Our SparkFriends

Tuesday, May 18, 2010      10 comments

The new Secrets to Success section of SparkPeople has become a real favorite of mine. I love reading what other people have found helpful. One thing I didn't figure out until today, though, is how to find the Secrets to Success that a specific S... Read more
