Tuesday, August 25, 2009      3 comments

I've decided to visit the Grand Canyon AFTER temps and tourists leave. It'll be a much more enjoyable trip when not going through 110 degree deserts. Even with a/c, no thanks. Had my second acupuncture appt. today and realized that I have a l... Read more

Monday, August 24, 2009      6 comments

It's been a very bumpy road this past couple of years with mega-losses, deaths, and non-stop other personal challenges. As a result, I found myself in what has felt like emotional quicksand and nothing I tried (degrees in psychology and lots of... Read more

One of the biggest lessons I learned this 7th month (total journey of 10 months - started October 08), occurred when I crashed and burned for the first time since last October. Wow, was that weekend ever a learning experience. What I learned w... Read more
Almost Done with Coffee/Caffeine
Saturday, August 22, 2009      3 comments

I've begun gradually eliminating coffee (it's the only caffeine I consume) from my day. Even though I don't drink that much (about half a small mug), it makes me feel yucky. The withdrawal headache is minimal and by the end of the weekend, I t... Read more

Friday, August 21, 2009      4 comments

Okay, I've had this ongoing saga with my wretched scales. (smiling) Both are good ones and supposed to be accurate. Yes, I've learned not to put all of my excitement on the measurement of pounds lost, but I really need to know how on-target (o... Read more

Okay, so I've decided that a short trip will do me good in reducing my stress level and have never been to the Grand Canyon. Am researching a moderately- priced place in Williams, but not sure. Anyone have first-hand experience to offer? The p... Read more
How Fruit Smoothie Lip Balm Made Me Ponder My Progress
Wednesday, August 19, 2009      5 comments

There are times of clarity, when it becomes so obvious that I've made progress during my 10 months of healthier eating. Not just the pounds lost or the smaller sizes of clothes (although those are very nice too). Last week, I bought some lip ba... Read more
Just When I Stopped Caring about the Scale - Go figure!
Tuesday, August 18, 2009      10 comments

Today was weigh-in day and I'd given up caring about the scale since my food bender a couple of weeks ago. Although I didn't totally pig out, it was the first time in 10 months that the train left the track. So, I've been kinda discouraged. I... Read more
If I've Lost All This Weight, Why Do I Still Feel So Heavy?
Monday, August 17, 2009      4 comments

Maybe because I am? Not really. I've lost about 33 lbs., but I feel like a blimp even though I'm not. Honestly, I seem to feel each and every one of these remaining 20 lbs more and more. Is it because I'm more in-tune with how my body feels... Read more

Sunday, August 16, 2009      4 comments

One Week After The Huge Crash
Saturday, August 15, 2009      6 comments

Last week, for the first time in 10 months, I went on a 3-day food bender. In retrospect, it was nothing like what I used to eat on a normal day. My overeating did not entail sweets, or anything similar. It was just being hungry and eating a ... Read more
Stress, Cortisol and Weight Loss
Friday, August 14, 2009      4 comments

It seems that I have heard this report several times lately and maybe the Cosmos is trying to give me a message. (smiling) That is, stress produces higher levels of cortisol which inhibits weight loss. My level has been off the charts for a lo... Read more

Thursday, August 13, 2009      5 comments

Yes, I'm signed up to get them on my page, and have been getting them until yesterday. I feel disconnected and not able to respond to blogs and other things. Anyone else having this problem? Guess I'll give it another day and see what happens... Read more
Forgiving Myself
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      4 comments

I'm so kind and caring to others, but not so much to myself. Oh sure, I do nice things for myself, but when it comes to forgiveness for the 3 days of eating rebellion, I have to really work on letting it go. I'm a tough taskmaster and have to ... Read more

Tuesday, August 11, 2009      3 comments

Okay, so I went on a 3-day eating bender last weekend after being a REAL good girl for 10 months now. It was a turning point where I just wanted to quit everything. And I blogged yesterday about what I learned from failure - including forgivin... Read more
