Back to Basics

Tuesday, November 13, 2007      2 comments

Tomorrow's another Wednesday with an all day lecture to attend and then an English class to teach in the evening. I'm going to continue NOT to track on Wednesdays to give myself a mid-week break. But otherwise, I think I still need to keep an ey... Read more

Wednesdays

I'm going to cut myself a little slack and take Wednesdays "off" from the food tracker.... Read more

Steady As She Goes

Sunday, November 04, 2007      2 comments

Yesterday marked one month of maintenance. Like everyone has been saying, it's a challenge in itself. There's the "now what?" feeling, and then there's the "go ahead and eat it, you've reached your goal" feeling - which I've been giving in to a ... Read more

Do I dare?

Thursday, October 25, 2007      2 comments

Like a lot of other losers, I'm also finding that I have a lot more energy and am not quite sure what to do with it: I've been entertaining the idea of getting back into jogging, something I haven't really done in over 20 years. My heart ... Read more

The New Normal

Monday, October 22, 2007      2 comments

I had a small "aha" moment today: occasionally I ask myself, "when will I go back to eating normally?" I realized today that this is the NEW NORMAL: planning and preparing my meals a day ahead, tracking calories, watching my ranges of fat, prote... Read more

Golden October

Saturday, October 20, 2007      0 comments

It's hard to believe that October is almost past! I took my car in yesterday to have the winter tires put on. It was the last day of their special deal at the garage. I go to pick up the car this morning, then it will be time to get my weekend s... Read more

Only One

Monday, October 15, 2007      1 comments

Busy weekend - church participation in the town's annual flea market and street festival. So I'm just now getting back to blogging. I weighed in this morning and was glad to see that I only gained a pound in spite of all the extra calories... Read more

Jiggedy Jog

Home again, home again: I'm back home in Germany - only arrived 5 minutes late in spite of a nation-wide strike of the regional trains! The theme of the retreat I attended was "Give Thanks" so, on Tuesday evening, we were treated to a trad... Read more

Taking a Hike

Saturday, October 06, 2007      0 comments

Tomorrow morning I leave for a few days in Switzerland at a missionaries' retreat. I've been going to these for several years and always look forward to them as a special time of rest, relaxation and fellowship. I'll be enjoying awesome views of... Read more

Maintenance Day 1

Thursday, October 04, 2007      0 comments

Someone asked me how I celebrated yesterday. The vacation trip coming up is actually my celebration, but I happened to be invited to a friend's for tea yesterday. I haven't been depriving myself during the SP program, so I had a piece and a half... Read more

I peeked :)

Teresa on one of my teams said that watching my ticker was like watching a suspense movie and I agree! I couldn't wait to my next Monday weigh-in day to check so I got on the scale this morning, feeling a little bit like a kid sneaking a loo... Read more

Party Time!

Monday, October 01, 2007      3 comments

This is going to be a weeklong celebration, I think! Two reasons to celebrate yesterday: Mom and Dad's 57th wedding anniversary, and the German women's national soccer team winning the world championship. (I'm not a big fan, but I enjoy watching... Read more

Over

Friday, September 28, 2007      0 comments

Tonight there was a celebration for one of my groups at the language school who just completed a one-year program preparing them to be "foreign language correspondents." All of them (and we teachers too!) have worked really hard this past year,... Read more

Big Three

Sunday, September 23, 2007      0 comments

Only three pounds to go to goal but they seem like HUGE ones, even compared with the first ten that I lost before joining SP. I'm actually feeling pretty good at the weight I'm at, and friends have been telling me they think I don't need to lose... Read more

Grace

Sunday, September 16, 2007      0 comments

Do not pray for easy lives; pray to be stronger men. Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers; pray for powers equal to your tasks. Then the doing of your work shall be no miracle, but you yourself shall be a miracle. Every day you ... Read more
