I'm not tracking my food & exercise here, because I found an app I like better, but I figure it's good to have a place to think out loud. It's been a few months, but no spectacular progress on any particular front. However, I've been hav... Read more
Starting the year off

Well, my New Year is starting a little late (we were out of the country for the holidays) but now I'm back and getting on track. Baby steps, but it'll get there.... Read more
Happy December

So, it's been a while. ("It's been six weeks since my last confession.") The gall bladder removal went very smoothly - I was off the narcotics that night, off painkillers within two days and have healed up just fine with no apparent side e... Read more

Well, this hasn't been a great month weight wise although the purging of the garage and crawl space continued. The big news is I finally got the gall bladder out yesterday and am recovering nicely.... Read more
Progress of a sort
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      3 comments

Last week was only okay on the eating front, in part due to continuing to be sick. But this weekend (since I was sick) I made huge progress on going through boxes of crap from the garage. Some of this had been in storage for ten years. I have... Read more
Day 5 & 6
Sunday, August 26, 2012      5 comments

Well, Friday I ended up staying home sick, but I stayed relatively on-plan for food, although I did have a couple of beers in the evening when some friends came over for a planning meeting. Yesterday I went to the beach with a friend and wh... Read more

Thanks much for the encouragement and helpful advice. I found it interesting that today's Coach Nicole video was a 15-minute office workout. Here I go!!! Food today was actually a little low. I had the other leftover mini-steak from the ... Read more
Day 3

Today didn't go too badly. Weight was down half a pound this morning. I had leftover chicken for lunch, and made a pork chop and some cauliflower for dinner. I was decent about my water and only had one soda. (That's day 2 of only one soda, wh... Read more
Day 2

Today was pretty good. I had a small breakfast (using up a leftover) and coffee, a big salad with leftover steak for lunch (little tiny steak as it turned out), chicken marsala for dinner with broccoli. So now I have lunch sorted for two days ... Read more
Day 1.5 (so I didn't lose the link)

I found this article a while ago, and in fact the whole site is full of interesting stuff, but this in particular spoke to me.
/2012/07/26/priorities/ The basic point (for those of you witho... Read more
Day 1

Restarting is hard, but at least I'm not back where I was. Today wasn't too bad. I did get breakfast out, which was bad, but I had a big salad for lunch and a small steak and broccoli for dinner. I was good about my water - I think I've h... Read more

Haven't been doing great. Been okay (well, up til this week) in not regaining a lot but not making downward progression. Next week I leave for a week of camping then a conference, and I have made some good choices in preparation for both, but ... Read more
Update Time

Well, I haven't yet been good about the going-to-the-gym thing, but I got a Striiv pedometer gizmo and that is at least making me more aware of movement and has fun little challenges and things. I'm also less hungry and generally (not always bu... Read more

It's a little early to be hitting a plateau, so I have to go back and look at what I ate this week, when I ate it, etc. But I still have one more day before my weigh-in day to be good, so I will and hopefully that will at least allow me to squea... Read more
Week 2 down
Monday, April 16, 2012      8 comments

So, 4.5 pounds this week. I wasn't as faithful as I could have been (and I have been having the occasional glass of wine), but progress is progress. I hate that it's not showing. It's common "knowledge" that X number of pounds should equal a ... Read more
