Finally down 1.1 lb this morning...
Sunday, October 25, 2009      6 comments

I can't seem to stop myself from weighing myself every morning and for now I will just accept that I am a bit obsessed with the scale. A couple weeks ago when I bought my new scale it said 243 and now it says 36.6 and that is finally down a lb ... Read more

And the good news is I have not gained any weight in over a week. Weight still holding at 237.7. Watching calories and sodium and water intake. Saw on The Doctors show that 1 cup of cottage cheese is 800 mg of sodium and there it was on the la... Read more

First of all I don't feel so hot...have eye infection and sinus headache plus numerous other aches.... The scale has been stuck at the exact same weight past 6 days and since I feel sick and somewhat "water logged" I figure it just is not a good... Read more
Stuck 6 days at EXACT same weight....
Thursday, October 22, 2009      3 comments

How is this possible? I have stayed exactly at 237.7 lb for 6 days in a row and I think I am doing everything right. I have heard that sometimes when you increase your activity your body holds fluid to help repair muscles. And I have heard (O... Read more

Wednesday, October 21, 2009      5 comments

My weight has stayed exactly the same for several days now...I am ready for a downward "spike" some time soon. Trying to stay within calorie goal and taking in enough water seems to be a problem. Will work on the water intake today...... Read more
Shiratake noodles...like 'em but I like tofu, too....
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      4 comments

Maybe you have to like tofu (a bland soy product very high in protein) but I do like shiratake noodles which I finally found at a local Japanese/Korean grocery store. A large serving of 8 ounces is only 40 (CORRECTED!!!) calories and "reminds" ... Read more
Shiratake noodles...
Monday, October 19, 2009      3 comments

I read that a lot of people don't like these noodles (made of tofu (soy) and yams). I think if you follow the directions and thoroughly rinse them and use a flavorful sauce (I used red curry sauce) and put in some stir fried veggies that taste ... Read more

I was afraid to weigh myself this morning cause I am still feeling "waterlogged," but I stayed the same and breathed a sigh of relief. Today I will be even more careful with the food choices I make and make sure the sodium is no more than 1500 ... Read more

I actually am trying to lose weight but after my sudden increase of 9 lbs and then fast loss of over 6 lb in less than 3 days I am happy my new weight today is only 1.1 lb MORE than my last recorded weight on SparkPeople. I think my true weight... Read more
Setting a reasonable goal of losing 5 lb per month....
Friday, October 16, 2009      5 comments

I have decided since having a goal of trying to lose 10 lbs per month (which I did for 5 months when I first started a diet program four years ago, by practically starving myself) and then regaining half of what I lost altogether (100 at one po... Read more
Can't weigh until I am back on diuretic....
Thursday, October 15, 2009      5 comments

This is day 2 without my diuretic...thought I picked it up from pharmacy yesterday and here they filled the wrong prescription. I refuse to weigh until I have been on the diuretic for at least 2 days. I know the scale will show an increase in ... Read more

Amazing. Watching sodium actually works...and watching total intake, too. I am amazed and hopeful my new scale is telling "The Truth." ... Read more
Getting to my "dry weight" --- watching sodium intake and calories
Tuesday, October 13, 2009      4 comments

I bought a new scale a few days ago. First weight was 243....it is on a downward trend as I think I am losing some excess fluid that made my ankles puffy and my pants tight. Of course, I probably have gained some "real" weight lately, too. ... Read more
