Crossing an invisible line
Tuesday, October 11, 2011      2 comments

I think that, unnoticed, sometime in the last 3 weeks I crossed some mysterious border line. I weighed myself on Monday morning and, not surprisingly, didn't show any loss. I knew from the mirror and from my clothing that I hadn't changed m... Read more
Reward for Good Behavior Redux
Wednesday, September 21, 2011      1 comments

Had to throw out the last of my black polyester pants two weeks ago. Falling off. *grins* A few weeks before that I had bought a pair of navy and a pair of grey tweed pants TWO SIZES SMALLER! Still have a bit of lycra in them, but at least ... Read more
Tweaking and testing

I think I have the "macro" issues of eating down (and rather thrillingly so!), but am realizing that adjusting the "micro" issues might be a very long-term proposition. I have officially stalled, and am starting to experiment with what will... Read more
Thai food - Yum!
Saturday, August 20, 2011      1 comments

My sister and niece took me out for a birthday lunch treat at a local Thai restaurant that I've wanted to go to for years and it was SO EXCELLENT! I honestly don't know if I stayed on track for carbs or not, though I certainly tried. I had a m... Read more
Still on track

Got through a rather difficult weekend and stayed on a surprisingly even keel, especially considering that my hormones should be making me even more prone to being emotional. I have actually been feeling generally more positive and motivate... Read more
Fear of Hunger
Monday, August 01, 2011      2 comments

Over the years I seem to have developed a real dread of discomfort of any kind. I have less and less tolerance for stress and unhappiness and, particularly, boredom. And that dread extends to being hungry as well. Not the real hunger: the s... Read more
Reward for good behavior

As I was walking through my office building this morning, evaporating the humidity from my body and hair as I strolled through the cool dry air, I realized that in just a few more pounds I can get one of the best rewards out there. Real. Cotton... Read more
Week 3 Weigh-in tonight

"The Boys Are Back in Town, The Boys Are Back in Town..." Which means I'm back to being the taxi driver. DH is on vacation this week and he actually agreed to take them to their Monday and Wednesday evening activities (dentist and extra ka... Read more
Weekend
Saturday, July 16, 2011      0 comments

I have a tendency to be kind of aimless on the weekends. I really rebel against the strict routine of weekdays, I think, and that has its joys (ah! sleeping in!), but is a little more problematic when it comes to getting things actually done. I... Read more

I admit, I was pretty down on Tuesday when I used the scale at the Y. I wasn't expecting to have gained a pound! But there it was, 224, up from 223. Even though I know that weight can fluctuate rather crazily within a 5 pound range or so, it ... Read more
The Road Goes Ever On

Like any good Hobbit, it's always about the food. My favorite meal time might just be elevenses..... OK. So my last blog post was about doing what I need to do in order to do what I want to do. What I didn't mention was that I still won't ... Read more
Thought meal (AKA Food for Thought)

I really like Sparkpeople articles. Three out of four of them have really good information or insights. Today's was ostensibly about winning the argument with yourself about whether to exercise or not. "Arm Yourself Against Exercise Excuse... Read more
Blah lunch

How very frustrating! I ordered what looked like a killer chicken caesar salad (fresh off the grill, I thought) and it's actually cold and almost totally BLAHHH. The only things with any flavor are the croutons, and they're stale from sitting ... Read more

So it was Tuesday night, the usual rush to get the boys to karate, but, thanks to FlyLady, I was all ready, and so were they, mostly. Even had some workout clothes ready to go for Zumba - my favorite instructor is back for the summer, woohoo! ... Read more

Last night I went to the kitchen to do dishes and there was one lone piece of meat left over from dinner. Well, it was too small to make a full portion, so it wasn't going to get put back in the fridge, and I hate to throw food away, and my bot... Read more
