No loss but no gain (this is good!)
I haven't lost any weight - but I also haven't gained any either!
I've also had a mini-streak - three days straight at the gym. I'll take today off from the gym as I have other things going on, but will be back there tomorrow. )

Positive Thinking and New Clothes
Yesterday was not a god day (as evinced by my very depressing blog entry!). But I am feeling better today. I think bad diet and hormones really do affect one's mood and outlook on life.
Really, I did have an over-indulgent weekend, and I p... Read more
Which comes first -the self -loathing or the binging?
I am fat. And I don't like my body. But, after yet another huge binge -drinking and eating -this whole weekend, I realize that I actually really don't like which I am on the inside either. I don't care about myself and maybe that is why I eat p... Read more
Wow -starting school!
So I have been unemployed for a few months, and I'm 40 and single. -nobody to cover the bills while I struggle. However) the harder part of the struggle is psychological. For an active brain to do nothing is hard, and it's tough not to feel dep... Read more
Binge - now comes the guilt...
After a really great weekend last weekend, where I was active, engaged and healthy, I totally binged the last few days. I guzzled nearly 2 bottles of wine last night (after a bottle the night before...), then of course ate frozen pizzas.

Such a Great Weekend!
I spent the long weekend back in my old stomping grounds, spending time with my boyfriend (who still lives there - 250km away from me!), and my best girlfriend.
No boozing it up at all - not one high-cal (or even low-cal!) alcoholic bevera... Read more
I ate within my calorie goal!!
I actually - I think for the first time ever - ate within my calorie intake goal of 1200 to 1500 cals!!
I am so pleased with myself. I know it is a little thing, and lots of Spark People have been doing this consistently, but I have not.

Well -my boyfriend (who lives 250km away!) And I are getting healthy together. Today was the big start - no more beer for him, a lot less wine for me. He's going to eat much better as will I. And I'm trying to increase my activity level too. Thi... Read more
Life Is Good!
I woke up today in much better spirits than yesterday - more energetic, more optimistic. Huh - and this is Monday! How about that?
Well - I know I was a downer yesterday, I felt so tired and so ... blah! Of course, that was an easy downward... Read more
Just Another Day
It's Sunday. I used to love Sunday mornings. The streets are so quiet, the day itself is quiet and relaxing. But since I've been unemployed, my days have started to run together. I don't really appreciate the weekend anymore, and really dread j... Read more
Tracking Food is Vital
I know most successful dieters swear by tracking everything they eat and drink.
I know this is good. And I always have good intentions. But never any follow-through.
Yesterday, at the end of the day/night, I input everything I'd consu... Read more
The Party is Over
So, I indulged for the last 3 or 4 days. I had a good time. I drank too much beer and wine, but ate much better for the most part. Healthy, home-cooked meals.
And now today I have to get back on track!
I ran/walked 6.5 km this morning... Read more
I'm so glad that I found Spark People. Thank you to all who comment on my blog posts -it's very encouraging knowing I'm not alone.
In happy news, I am away for a few days visiting my boyfriend who, since I moved away, now lives 250km away. ... Read more
Discouraged and Blue
I'm posting just because I guess I should.
I feel really crummy today - crummy about myself, my body, my lack of willpower.
I've gained weight again, and now weigh more than I ever have in my life. I seem to be failing in all aspects ... Read more

Sudden Brain Wave - Stop Drinking to Lose Weight
Here is another thing that I realize - if I totally quit drinking, I will, in all likelihood, lose weight.
Yesterday I drank a bottle of wine, which usually satisfies, then ate a few (not a whole bag) of chips.
Bad bad bad. I used to d... Read more
