Getting A Little Cocky and Complacent

Sunday, May 17, 2009      4 comments

Yesterday was a rare day of rebellion. I was hungry. I didn't want to deal with calories, weight issues, or whatever. Didn't eat junky stuff, but did ingest more than usual. It was like I needed a vacation day from just thinking about all th... Read more

Saturday, May 16, 2009      4 comments

I'd been thin and active all my life - up until a few years ago when a combination of things tidal-waved me and packed on the pounds. These included hormonal changes, lots of stress, less activity due to more time spent working, etc. You get t... Read more

Wednesday, May 13, 2009      6 comments

Okay, I was on Cloud 9 for a few days due to being 3 sizes down since October 08. But now the reality has resumed in knowing that I have 20 more pounds to shed and, wow, do they feel heavy. I mean, I feel as heavy as when I first started. I t... Read more

I've Been Talking to Myself All Day, Like a Raving Lunatic - 3 dress sizes down!

Sunday, May 10, 2009      4 comments

Revisiting My New, Healthy Eating Habits - #8 Breakfast & Regular Intervals

Thursday, May 07, 2009      0 comments

Revisiting My New, Healthy Eating Habits - #7 Eating slowly

Wednesday, May 06, 2009      3 comments

I'll make this one short and sweet - there is nothing like slow eating. It takes the stomach about 20 minutes to get the message that food is coming into the body. I used to just eat ravenously and was "starving." The overly-full feeling of h... Read more
