I've had a few weeks of being at a weight plateau, and was starting to feel a little frustrated by not making much progress despite really good efforts. And then this week - things started changing. Or maybe I just noticed them changing. Either ... Read more

I've lost about 15 lbs in the last 10 weeks. I've been encouraged with this progress so far, but it's been hard to get too excited becuase I've put on about 20 lbs in the last 2 years or so. I don't think I'll really feel like I'm making progre... Read more
Time Wasters

I waste a lot of time on my phone or the computer - facebook, games, instagram. If I started taking a walk instead of checking my facebook feed, I'd rack up the miles very quickly! I need to start being more intentional about how I use my time. ... Read more
1 week!

While one week isn't a long time, I've found that with anything I do, it's easier to take it one week, one day, one choice at a time. I'm not going to lose weight by keeping my goals a year at a time; I'm only going to accomplish my goals if I m... Read more

Things are going well. I'm making healthy decisions while keeping my goals in mind, and I'm not feeling discouraged. Yet. I realize that coming from a family with a history of both extreme obesity and diabetes (not to mention heart disease and a... Read more

After my week of eating, drinking, and being merry with a friend from college, I'm ready to get serious about my health. This week, I'm not as concerned about my calories or what I'm eating, as I am about tracking. My goal for the week is to tra... Read more

"Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together." -- Vincent Van Gogh I set goals, achieve them and then move on to the next thing. I don't like to try anything I'm not good at or that I might fail at... Read more

I'm trying to start again after several false starts the last few months. I probably will not eat well today. I will try, but I haven't planned ahead at all. I'm focusing on drinking enough water this week and going to the gym a few times. Small... Read more
A Little Off Track
Sunday, February 10, 2008      0 comments

I haven't been good about tracking my food for the last couple of weeks. I've gotten a bit off track and have only lost about 1.5 lbs in the last two weeks. I'm trying to start getting back on track starting today - tracking my food and my exerc... Read more

After my first week, I've lost 3 lbs! I'm very exctied about that because it was a lot more than I expected. I know not to get my hopes up too high because it's very likely that I won't lose anywhere close to that this week. I only went to the g... Read more

I've been doing fairly well so far (it's only been three days, but that means that I'm 1/7 of the way to making it a habit, right??). I've gone a little over my calorie allotment, but I am fairly close and am doing a LOT better than I was before... Read more
