Good Intentions

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      6 comments

One of my healthy eating goals is to eat more whole grains. A good goal, right? So, I've been going to various co-ops, health food stores, and speciality groceries to find lots of different kinds of whole grains to try. A good plan, right? ... Read more

How was your week?

Sunday, July 15, 2012      3 comments

I've been attending Weight Watchers with a friend for a few months now. We tried different meetings until we found a leader and group that we liked. Every week as the meeting starts, the leader asks us (as a group and individually) "How was your... Read more

I lost a "W"

Saturday, July 14, 2012      12 comments

As of this morning's weigh-in, I've lost over 26 pounds, am at the precipice of onederland and have lost a "W". Last night, I tried on some clothes and found that the 22W and 20W and 18W clothing ranged from way too big to roomy and an 18 f... Read more

Got rid of some stuff

Wednesday, June 20, 2012      6 comments

This morning as I was getting dressed, I put on a shirt and noticed that it was too big. Not falling off me on the floor big but really roomy kind of big, not very flattering kind of big. Big enough to hide the lumps and bumps and tease me into... Read more

I'm going to have a hamburger today

Sunday, June 17, 2012      9 comments

This evening for Father's Day, our sons are taking their dad out for dinner at a local bar/restaurant that has amazing hamburgers and fries. I could, of course, have a salad but some of the salads have a million calories and I really, really wan... Read more

Interview today

Thursday, June 14, 2012      5 comments

Well, I had an interview today. It's for a job I really want (actually, I just really want a job) and I know that I'm qualified. There are lots of other qualified people who are being interviewed too. And they're younger... and they're most... Read more

Magical morphing body image

Monday, June 11, 2012      2 comments

If I had to draw a picture of myself right now, I would probably draw a somewhat overweight person BUT ask me to draw a picture right after I've eaten too much or the scale shows negative progress and that picture would be a huge blob. I r... Read more

I did a scary thing

Sunday, June 10, 2012      6 comments

Two days ago, I did something scary that I've never done before. I went through all my cool weather clothes (most of them since it's Michigan) and got rid of everything that was my current size and bigger. I didn't just put them in a different d... Read more

The One Percent Solution

Monday, October 10, 2011      1 comments

No, this isn't related to the Sherlock Holmes solution of the 7% variety, this is related to the article I read about the benefits of losing 10%. Yes, I know it's a good idea for many, many reasons but I just can't do it. It's too much, I g... Read more

I was going to name this something different

Monday, September 26, 2011      1 comments

I was going to write an entry about the concept of percentage weight loss. All the literature speaks to losing 10% -- how much healthier you are, what a great start etc. I have enough weight to lose that I find even 10% intimidating. BUT, ... Read more
