Friday, October 30, 2009      8 comments

Last year I weighed 30 lbs more than today. Yet, I feel bigger and heavier now than I did then... how can that be? Maybe I'm more sensitive to the extra meat on my bones and aware of how much I want to be rid of it. In fact, some days (like t... Read more

Yup, I'm at it again - trying to get off of coffee. Yes, there are ways to wean myself, but yesterday I'd had it for a number of reasons. I realized that I wanted out of the coffee syndrome, even though I don't drink that much. It makes me fe... Read more

I'VE BEEN BAD, AND THAT AIN'T GOOD

Sunday, October 25, 2009      4 comments

Yes, my last blog was the gateway drug, so to speak. Just a little dessert that I wrote about. Yeah, right! I've been at another turning point. I think it started the week I busted my butt exercising and didn't lose a thing. I said, "forget... Read more

Trying to Get Out of This

Saturday, October 24, 2009      10 comments

It's a REALLY tough lesson for me. The other night, I was out to see Lion King, and eating dinner beforehand at a nice restaurant. I ordered "a little dessert" and let myself know that this was not going to be the norm. However, it DID open ... Read more

Tuesday, October 20, 2009      8 comments

I worked my tush off last week, to the point where I thought the scale would applaud my blood, sweat and tears. (okay, just sweat) This morning, I bravely embarked on each of my scales. The first one - same weight, no loss. Same ole plateau.... Read more

Ah Oh! The Perils Of Thinking I Can Eat More Because I've Exercised More

Sunday, October 18, 2009      5 comments
