Well, Hell

Back up to 191, but I am not discouraged! (well, almost not). This is the way it ALWAYS is with my body, so I was expecting to flip back up to the 190s. In the next few weeks I'll flip back down. Things will all even out, and my trend i... Read more

There is a great episode of Star Trek Voyager where a nasty, scary species from another planet is preparing to attack earth. To do so, they have a ‘training camp’ where they ... Read more
A simple little story about a coat

I was sitting with a group of about 15 people the other day. One of them noticed I was shivering and asked if it was cold. I was, I was freezing and underdressed. One of my... Read more
OK, for real this time

So a sinus infection during the holidays proved to be too much to meet my goals, both because I was too sick to work out, and because I was sick for so long I stopped caring about my daily health very much. Somehow, inexplicably, I still lo... Read more
Let's Look Toward the 180s. Seriously.

I just read a blog that I LOVED about focusing on being healthy, and losing weight being ONE of the by-products of a healthy life, not the goal. The blog also talked about all of the things that the scale doesn't measure that are so, so much be... Read more

Perspective is hard to get. Especially after so many years of not having much. If you had asked me 2 years ago how I would feel about weighing 198 pounds, I would have said I couldn't imagine it--that it would be mind boggling and wonderf... Read more
198 is the most beautiful number I've ever seen
Wednesday, September 02, 2009      12 comments

When I started all of this I would sit and read posts of people who had been successful. 30 pounds and counting, 40 pounds and counting, 100 pounds and counting. I would just shake my head, hopeful but doubtful. The doubts have crept awa... Read more

After 17 months on SP with things going fairly well overall, I may have hit a plateau. I'm not really sure, but I am realizing that since June not much has happened. No... Read more
Not off Track (except my negativity)
Sunday, July 19, 2009      2 comments

How many times do I have to relearn that my negative voice is not accurate? I was feeling really down today because I'd been off track, eating over my calorie range from tuesday until today. It made me want to rethink everything, b/c it fe... Read more
July Goals and Damn Nachos!
Wednesday, July 01, 2009      2 comments

Adding onto Junes goals, which went well, I think. I feel like my head and heart are more into the game again, which feels good. So for July: --work out at least 4 times a week. --track most days --time alone 3 times this month ... Read more

My last post was on my one year anniversary at the end of March. Since then, nothing much has happened. I've gone on tracking my food most days, and working out most days. Except in May, when we got a new puppy (7 weeks old). I did not work ... Read more

SP Survey
Sunday, February 01, 2009      2 comments

I just took the SP survey--wow it made me feel good. If I had taken that survey a year ago--wow would my answers have looked different! A lot can happen in a year. Here's what I wrote at the bottom of my survey: Taking this survey has pu... Read more
