    7/19/2016 10:45:33 AM, by MINATHERED

    Well... I did not do well with my party. I baked for three days and then feel like I ate it all myself. I didn't, but I sure put a dent in it. I ate over 4,000 calories Saturday. I also felt sick to my stomach and on Sunday felt positively hung over. I have been doing great at my working out, thou... Read more

    7/16/2016 2:25:03 AM, by STEPHLOKI

New strategy: on days I go to the gym I will have 1/2 glass of apple juice. Topped up with water before and same after the gym. And no, eating roasted white corn is not acceptab... Read more

  • I'm not done yet.

    7/11/2016 3:10:36 PM, by MINATHERED

    As I posted in chat, I officially hit under 200 lbs (down from 310 May 2015) on my Saturday weigh in. I'm thrilled and feel great about it, but I don't really *feel* like I'm under 200 lbs. I still have 44 - 54 lbs to go, I still wear plus size. (Sorta - 16s and I couldn't find any plus sizes that f... Read more

What has made this change, other that getting challenged to go beyond my comfort zone, ZUMBA!!!!! I'm now so smitten, that I have sig... Read more

  • 1 week into the new diet

    7/9/2016 1:19:12 AM, by STEPHLOKI

    Well week 1 is done and dusted. Last night I totally overate. I was at an Indian cook-out and it was difficult to find good choices. I think my choices were the best under the circumstances but just too much. Problem is that food gets finished at different times and plates are passed around. Am stil... Read more

  • Day 5 of the new diet

    7/6/2016 12:20:21 AM, by STEPHLOKI

    Day 4 went much better. Actually felt nice and full even after 2 hrs of golf. Did have a hiccup with me confusing the measurements and eating a bit (about 20gm) more meat than I should have. I used the measurement for chicken on beef. But now I know and will not do it again. Looks like a warm and ... Read more

    Here I am on day 3. Saturday was hard yesterday was ok. Today I went to the gym and felt HUNGRY the whole day. I know part of it is my body having to get used to low carb again. In the afternoon I had the weird mixture of sugar cravings and nausea from a migraine. This is actually expected, I ju... Read more

    200.6 at today's weigh in. You know that means that I'm less than one pound away from One-derland. Holy crow! As a side note, with one exception I did really well this week, eating in my range and working out. It's amazing how the weight loss started back up when I started eating right and exercis...

    6/27/2016 10:19:57 PM, by MINATHERED

    Nothing much to say. Just a couple weeks of slogging along. I've been struggling with eating inside my calorie range, but I'm doing better than I was. Still slightly over, but I'm in the range of 5 - 100 over most days instead of the 500+ I was doing. I'm doing better at getting my water in. I'... Read more
