Weight Loss Program Session 3 plus HUGE weight off my shoulders
My weight loss group took a week off because of Memorial Day, but we're back on. Tonight we talked about food portions and things like that. I like the group more for the support aspect because, really, I've been "trying to lose weight" since I ... Read more
Weight Loss Program Week 2 recap!
I lost about two pounds in a week after resuming my old tracking habits. I didn't exercise as much as I had planned, but I am starting over, basically, and it's okay for me to start slow.
Two pounds is a LOT for me to lose in a week, and I... Read more
I am not sure if I was overreacting or not, but I don't think I was.
Yes, I'm overweight. There are multiple reasons for that. Some of those reasons are physical, and a LOT of those reasons are psychological. I have some deep-rooted self-esteem issues. I don't like myself. I never have.
I was seeing a therap... Read more
Weight loss program Week 1 recap!
I rejoined my gym back in January, and honestly, I haven't been all that consistent. There are several gyms in my neighborhood -- I know of three within about four blocks of where I live -- but they are all very, very expensive. I rejoined my ol... Read more
Hey, remember me?
Embarrassingly enough, it's been over a year since my last blog post, and I'm in the exact same situation. I haven't lost weight -- in fact I've gained even more. I'm basically where I started back in 2008. I have to get back to myself. I felt a... Read more
I'm alive and I'm back and this is really difficult.
I will start off by saying I have had some really bad experiences over the past several months and I have gained a lot of weight. My scale is broken and I don't actually know how much weight I have gained, and I'm afraid to step on a scale. I ha... Read more
No Progress Is Still Kinda Like Progress
My weight hasn't changed much since August. I've actually gained a pound or two. I'm still not weighing myself, but I did catch a glimpse of my weight at the doctor's office last week -- I was 150 while fully clothed and after eating a couple of... Read more
A 100 lb difference -- I can't believe this was me.
I don't have a lot of pictures of myself at my heaviest weight. I avoided the camera a lot back then. I didn't get out much so there weren't many occasions to take pictures of me, anyway.
I was looking for a specific picture today, and I f... Read more
In addition to my regular weekly goals, I'm not going to weigh myself for the month of November. I'm getting a little obsessive about the scale and it's depressing me. Also, if I see a "bad" number I get depressed, but if I see a "good" number I... Read more
New plan -- AGAIN
I really slacked off this month. I slacked off last month, too. I'm fortunate that the scale hasn't been too unkind. My weight fluctuates around the upper 140s.
I haven't been able to ride my bike because my pedals get really slippery in r... Read more
September was a weird month for me. This is probably the first month since my SparkPeople reboot that I haven't lost any weight (not counting my "maintenance month" when I sprained an ankle and had the flu). I gained a pound. Ouch! Most people w... Read more
Confession and plans
Well, it was bound to happen eventually. I slipped up. Quite badly, in fact. It took me a while, but I figured out why. I'm just glad I put a stop to it before it got out of control.
I've been doing pretty well, weight-wise. I've been weigh... Read more
