No loss but no gain (this is good!)
Friday, November 23, 2012      4 comments

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. ) I nee... Read more
Positive Thinking and New Clothes
Tuesday, November 20, 2012      2 comments

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?
Monday, November 19, 2012      2 comments

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!
Tuesday, October 23, 2012      2 comments

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...
Sunday, October 14, 2012      3 comments

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. N... Read more
Such a Great Weekend!
Monday, October 08, 2012      1 comments

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!!
Friday, October 05, 2012      3 comments

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. ... Read more
Big Start
Monday, October 01, 2012      1 comments

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!
Monday, September 24, 2012      3 comments

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
Sunday, September 23, 2012      1 comments

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
Tuesday, September 18, 2012      2 comments

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
Monday, September 17, 2012      2 comments

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
Thursday, September 13, 2012      6 comments

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
Wednesday, September 12, 2012      3 comments

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
