A Brand New Day, Accountability, or at least I'm Back!
Tuesday, March 30, 2010     

The past few months have not been nice to me and I have not been nice to my weight loss plan. I should have dropped about 70 lbs by now, but I am still at the same 25 (give or take a couple) that I was at in November. I did resign myself to main... Read more
Is the Goal 1/2 Met or 1/2 Missed???
Friday, December 04, 2009     

Around Black Friday, Al was digging through all of the sale ads and talking about some of the deals that were being offered. One of the ones we were most interested in was a deal that the movie theater was offering. It seems you could buy a $25 ... Read more
Holiday Blues

I have to say this hasn't been the best time for me as far as weight loss. I've gone from a 1-2 lbs average weight loss per week to about 0.5 lbs. I did really well while my family was visiting in October, because they are all doing Spark People... Read more

For the last two weeks I have been on a plateau. I didn't lose any weight, and I was a little frustrated. I knew that it was because I was staying in the top range of my calories, and because I still haven't found time to exercise. I was also a ... Read more
Tough Week
Friday, September 11, 2009     

This has been a really tough week for me hunger wise. I don't know if it was the long weekend that screwed me up or what. All week I have been a little over, or right at the top of, my range for calories & fat. I have also started tracking my ca... Read more

So, I don't know if it is good or bad, but I have factored the occasional 3 Musketeer's bar into my lunch/snack routine. It satisfies my sweet tooth, has less fat and fewer calories than say a Snickers, and I still come in under my calories and ... Read more

I've had a few cravings, but mostly I've been able to satisfy them by going ahead and eating the foods I love in small portions. However, I've really been craving cupcakes this week. For those of you who don't know me, cupcakes are my weakness. ... Read more
Fast Food Crutch
Friday, August 28, 2009     

Day 4 and I feel a slight sense of accomplishment. I am doing pretty well when I plan my day, but there are still times I keep falling back on my fast food crutch. It isn't all bad. On Wednesday I had forgotten part of my lunch so I decide... Read more
Educational Experience
Wednesday, August 26, 2009     

Yesterday was our first full day and it went pretty well. I stayed on track because I am able to sit in front of the computer and track everything I put in my mouth. Al did well because he only has access to the food he takes to work. The real t... Read more
First Day
Tuesday, August 25, 2009     

Today is our first day of trying to eat healthier. We all weighed in last night, and actually thought about what we were going to eat today. I think the hardest part will be planning ahead and tracking what we eat. If nothing else, I hope this w... Read more
