Swedish success?
Sunday, February 16, 2014      0 comments

I've been trying the Low Carb High Fat diet since January and have been having a good amount of success with it. The weight loss has been consistent, but not too rapid. Too be honest, I'd rather have slower weight loss than I had with the Atkins... Read more

Trying a new eating plan as (strongly) recommended by my friend. It's an eating plan that is very popular in Scandinavia & is supposed to be great for diabetics (which I'm trying hard not to become) & those with PCOS (which I have). the plan is ... Read more

Been mostly sticking to plan. I know that once I get into the dieting groove (yes yes I know, I should be working on a lifestyle change but with as much weight as I need to lose, I'm calling it a diet!) I will have a much easier time. The last y... Read more

I've had a very rough 14 months or so after I had a second trimester miscarriage. I very much would like to have a second child but can't seem to manage to stay pregnant, none of my pregnancies have carried to term (my only living child was born... Read more
Flirting with Crock Pots
Thursday, March 08, 2012      4 comments

I have long been an admirer of Crock Pots AKA Slow Cookers. I knew their good points & sweet ways, but was playing hard to get. I would shoot coy glances at slow cooker recipes, put them in my folders then callously ignore them. In the end we we... Read more

I will admit that I am the queen of procrastination (not the president as I'd never get around to running for office). I am also excessively good at coming up with excuses for why I'm not doing things that I should be. All of this leads to my cu... Read more
Must read Bossypants

I don't know too much about Tina Fey. I know she's on SNL but as I have no satellite or cable & my TV is devoted to children's shows for the most part, this doesn't mean much. I had heard of her book Bossypants but hadn't read it or even planned... Read more

As I was pissing away time time at the computer I found Curvy magazine. I'm enjoying many of their articles, though as always I'm confused by some of the people who come on to comment. If plus size people offend you, why go on the site in the fi... Read more

The past year I took myself from 218lbs to 169 to 189. I'm still ahead of the game in the loss department weight wise, but want to stop the upward climb. I started SparkPeople in the fall of 2010 & was really good until the holidays. After the h... Read more

I discovered what had been making me so tired. I was pregnant! I've had a very hard time getting pregnant & not very much luck with the pregnancies I've had. The weight loss helped me get pregnant without drugs. I was so happy!! Nervous but happ... Read more

I can come to the realization that I need to eat more like my 3yr old. I always make sure he has fruits, veggies, & whole grains. He drinks mostly water (he doesn't care much for sweet drinks). He rarely sits in fronts of the TV, instead he danc... Read more

So here we go again. Did well enough over the holidays, then tossed it all to slack off for most of Jan & Feb. This resulted in a gain of everything I had lost in the past couple of months and put me at my beginning of Dec weight. Getting b... Read more
