I'm a poorly controlled experiment :D

Wednesday, March 14, 2012      8 comments

So, I hit a plateau a while back. I looked over my spreadsheet where I've recorded my weekly weigh-ins since last June 28 and pondered my "snag". I hit 206 around November 16, then kept going slowly lower through December. Just after New Ye... Read more

Clothing Sizes are just GOOFY

Tuesday, February 28, 2012      7 comments

A friend from church passed along 4 huge bags of lovely clothes to me with the admonition to take what I can use and pass on the rest to someone else. I told her upfront that I wouldn't fit a size 14 for months yet, but, as long as she didn't m... Read more

Another Myth Bites the Dust!

Thursday, January 26, 2012      10 comments

People will bemoan the fact that a low-carb diet is "so much more expensive" than what they're currently doing. Wrong. I keep my financial information in a set of spreadsheet worksheets, which makes it very easy to analyze where your m... Read more

Gotta love the FlyLady!

Wednesday, January 11, 2012      6 comments

One of yesterday's FlyMail reminders dealt with forgiving our parents (moms in particular) for making us crazy/poor housekeepers/overweight/having bad self-esteem/etc. I would love to cut and paste the whole exchange but it's prohibited both by ... Read more

Reading Good Calories, Bad Calories

Monday, January 09, 2012      8 comments

I finally broke down and bought the book on Saturday. Fascinating reading! I'm glad I read Why We Get Fat.. first, because it gets to the heart of the weight loss and obesity subject matter so much more quickly, but for an overall understan... Read more

...because you're worth it.

More carb-sensitive than I thought...

Wednesday, October 26, 2011      5 comments

I have not had much trouble with this new lifestyle since I started back in July. I did have a couple of time periods when I stopped losing for a few weeks at a time, but after doing some research and asking around the low carb team I decided it... Read more

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
