I log into the site every day. It helps me the same way meetings help alcoholics & addicts because overeating is an addiction too. I've attended Overeaters Anonymous meetings. In the past, be it Weight Watchers or whatever, the day after a meeti... Read more
Taking off the training wheels, wish I could lose the tether
Saturday, September 22, 2007      4 comments

I'm going to stop using the nutrition tracker today. I think I have a good grip on my food plan and I can use it at any time if I feel the need. If it weren't for a challenge I'm in and another project, I'd stop weighing too. Wow, how freeing th... Read more
Entering stage 3

I felt a little guilt about not being more consistent with exercise, as if I didn't deserve to move forward yet. Not exercising regularly is irresponsible of me. It's immature too. If I say I want to lose weight and I know how long it will take... Read more
Prudent evolution
Wednesday, September 19, 2007      3 comments

On a daily basis, I continue to have more successes than challenges. I'm well able to keep my calories within range, plan and prepare my meals in advance, keep healthy snacks on hand. Although I'm still very sporatic when it comes to exercise, I... Read more
A respite for my mind
Monday, September 17, 2007      1 comments

I was determined to have a lazy mind weekend. If I had a thought that I suspected might require introspection, soul searching, self-examination or accountability, I pushed it aside. I did join another site that may lead me to work on other areas... Read more
I can see the top of my dining room table
Thursday, September 13, 2007      4 comments

As a treat for my subconscious, so it won't be saying bad things about me behind my back, I tackled that table. I wish I could live without horizontal surfaces - there isn't one in my house that doesn't have things that it shouldn't. Well except... Read more
Self esteem is key

To prepare myself for today and the effort to refocus, I started cleaning my kitchen last night, which was a wreck and had been for days. As things got shinier, my mood got brighter. I remembered reading in "You: The Owner's Manual" that our gre... Read more
I have to hit the reset button
Tuesday, September 11, 2007      1 comments

I didn't exceed my calorie max for today but I got higher than I should. And I am way low with water today. Whoa Lynn, this is not good. There is no way this can continue into tomorrow. That's the only way to avoid a downward spiral - end it tod... Read more
I think SP is helping me grow up too
Sunday, September 09, 2007      4 comments

I think I'm actually maturing. Today is crunches day for me, that's what I have listed as my strength training for today. But I didn't "feel" like doing them and I wasn't going to, because I didn't "feel" like it. But I thought about what my goa... Read more
I took a peek at that stupid scale.

How I can be up a pound I do not know. Fortunately, I was expecting this because I’ve read it on so many blogs and message boards. If it still holds true tomorrow when I officially weigh myself, I’ll be fine. I know my food plan is fine, I get p... Read more

I’ve been thinking about what I call my delusional fat mind: dfm (I won’t give it capital letters). I’ve been using it for years because, being delusional, I didn’t realize that it was irrational. I think we all have it, all of us who have this ... Read more
I done good
Tuesday, September 04, 2007      5 comments

I had another good day because I, #1 had a plan and #2 executed it. One of the things I'm learning is that I can't fly by the seat of my pants. I can't get up in the morning and leave without knowing what I'm going to eat for lunch or if I get h... Read more

I made it back from Mom's with a plate of chicken and greens only. That's all I ate while I was there too. I remind myself that I already know what everything I want tastes like so to forgo some things for the next year is no big deal.... Read more
Labor Day test
Sunday, September 02, 2007      4 comments

Tomorrow will be a serious test and I intend to pass it. Mom's "I've been cooking for two days" Labor Day spread. I'm going to fill the plate I eat and the one I take home with vegetables and one serving of chicken, no ribs because I had some to... Read more
A few extra calories today
Saturday, September 01, 2007      1 comments

For the first time, I went over my calorie goals for the day. Not a lot but I usually try to get just over 1200 and go nowhere near 1550. It was too easy to do, too. I splurged on a large vanilla cappucino this morning, then the fish I had at lu... Read more
