Curse you french fries!!!
Well...actually I didn't have very many french fries. I did, however, have a ridiculous amount of fast food because we ran out of groceries and I've had a headache all day, so I didn't feel up to grocery shopping and cooking anyway. I'm still ... Read more
can't give up
I keep failing, but at least I keep trying. I have fast food less than once a week now, no fried food at home, etc. AND I am now off the antidepressant that was causing some of my weight gain, but still not a bit of progress. The thing I hate ... Read more
No more fast food torture!
I finally convinced my husband that eating fast food in front of me was extremely cruel and was sabotaging my diet. It only took crying for half an hour. "It doesn't hurt you to not eat a cheeseburger," he said. I just about kicked him in the ... Read more
Sleep? What's that?
My husband and I are both having trouble with our CPAP masks hurting, so last night we switched with each other. It worked out surprisingly well. My sleep schedule is SO screwed up right now though. I'm getting up at like 1:30 in t... Read more
Total = Cinnamon Toast Crunch?!
Total came out with an awesome new variety that is very similar to Cinnamon Toast Crunch. It's not quite as lightly crispy, and there's a lot less sugar dumped on it, but it tastes almost as good and still has 100% of your daily vitamins. Sinc... Read more
Curse you Red Lobster!
They're doing that 'endless shrimp' thing again. This is something my husband and I used to look forward to immensely, as we both love shrimp and don't eat at restaurants very often. Unfortunately, pigging out on shrimp scampi is about the stu... Read more
Can't. Stop. Craving! *sigh* At least I found out my cholesterol is not as bad as the doctor thought. They took the reading from when I had my thyroid levels checked, and you don't have to fast for that so I'd eaten like an hour before. It... Read more
Real food is yummy!
After eating home-cooked meals for almost two weeks straight, I can definitely say fast food is nowhere near as satisfying. I still have cravings for Burger King's cheesy tots, but I have lost the desire for a take-out meal. It may be quicker ... Read more
I'm starting over, trying to get back in the habit of tracking my calories, trying to start exercising again. I'm trying to cut out fast food entirely by cooking with mixed success. I'm also trying to cut out soda. We'll see how it goes. I'm... Read more
Exersize videos replaced by video games!
I am really enjoying Wii Fit, and I am delighted to have our 360 back from repair so I can play DDR again. I think my favorite part of Wii Fit is the yoga. It doesn't require a lot of strenuous movements or hopping around, but at my size, even... Read more
Wii Fit! Yay!
I still don't have a job, but at least I still have fun ways to exercise! I'm going to try out Wii Fit as soon as I get back from my job interview (at Walmart, sigh). I've heard great things about it, so we'll see.... Read more
still jobless =(
I've had some good interviews but nothing else yet. I haven't entered my food log for days. I'm having trouble not eating fast food three meals a day because my schedule is so messed up =( At least I haven't forgotten how to make healthier ch... Read more
back to square one
After a long and arduous period of anxiety, I lost my job. Now I find out I've gained five pounds back. The two are definitely related. It's hard to say no to comfort food when even with medication it feels like your life is ending. This con... Read more
I just rearranged our computer room and went on an exterminating frenzy. Talk about a workout! Of course, I also accidentally ate most of a pint of ice cream. D'oh! (chocolate with white and dark fudge chunks, walnuts and fudge-covered almon... Read more
keeping it up
I've been meeting my calorie goals without much trouble. I still need to get more exercise though. I reckon I'll weigh/measure at the end of March.... Read more
