Emotional eating - advice or help encouraged
Sunday, January 23, 2011      7 comments

I just finished writing a journal entry about why I emotionally eat. I don't want to make it public because some of it is pretty personal and I read that I shouldn't out myself or shame myself. I just want to know if anyone knows how I can hel... Read more
Small changes not shown by the scale
Sunday, December 05, 2010      9 comments

So I lost four pounds this week and was really excited. Afterwards I did my upper body workout and noticed some other changes that are positive: 1. I can do 10 regular pushups in my set of 20 (the other 10 are modified, but I'm working o... Read more
Where am I losing the weight?
Saturday, November 27, 2010      7 comments

Today I took all of my measurements. The scale states I've lost approximately 35 pounds since I've started officially on SP, but 45 overall from when I started exercising in January. I wanted to see where it is all coming off because my waist ... Read more
Will the plateau continue?
Saturday, November 20, 2010      3 comments

I have been at the same weight for the past month. I have not moved since I weighed in at 186. I keep telling myself it's just a plateau, do the things you know are right and it will move again. I am a little afraid that I won't move past thi... Read more
The annoying scale
Sunday, November 14, 2010      2 comments

I am so annoyed today by my scale. I know it's terrible but I weighed myself 8 times with 8 different results that varied wildly. I finally just gave up and tried on my smallest pair of jeans to make sure they still fit. One of the first purc... Read more
No weight change this week
Sunday, November 07, 2010      7 comments

Okay today I hopped on the scale and found I hadn't lost any weight. This is okay because I realize that i was eating Nutella late at night. Since my husband has been gone I have been sneaking it in at night when the kids are asleep and I'm wa... Read more
Early morning workout
Tuesday, November 02, 2010      5 comments

I got in the weights this morning. Now I'm just waiting to go home and complete my run and some stretches with abs. I like the early morning workout. I just need to get more consistent with it. It really will work so much better with my work... Read more

Well I have a guest coming over today from work. It's kind of spur of the moment so I won't be able to do the planned run, unless I ditch him (my husband is in Senegal). I may do it, but will have to see if he will get upset with that. I cert... Read more
Setting new goal weight
Tuesday, October 26, 2010      6 comments

So I measured my BMI again on Sunday. I measured myself first (height) and realized I am not 5"7 but am actually 5"5. So officially I am still obese. Bummer, but it's going to come off slow and I'm okay with the weight coming off slow. Howev... Read more
Adding new exercises to my old routine
Friday, October 22, 2010      3 comments

I did my lower body weight workout today and added some new exercises. Namely bridges, wall sits for a minute each time (x3) and some plyometric jumping. I felt good today. At the end my legs were cramping a little so I think I worked hard. ... Read more
A new week after a bad one
Monday, October 18, 2010      7 comments

Well last week I really did myself in and worked out only once. I had no excuse except I was didn't do it. I ate reasonably well, but went over three times and was at the high end of my range the entire week. I felt hungry so I ate. I was al... Read more
Tired but pushing through
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      9 comments

Today I did not feel good after work. I told myself I'd do some cardio. Then it clouded over and I thought to myself I can't let good cloud cover go to waste so I went out and ran 30 minutes and worked out another 45 minutes to total 75. ... Read more

What causes emotional eating for me? Uncertainty. Not knowing what will happen and fear of the unknown. I'm a controller so I want to be certain that every decision is the right one which is entirely unreasonable. There are too many variable... Read more
Changing my goal date
Sunday, September 26, 2010      2 comments

Today I decided to change my goal date keeping in mind that I want to lose 1-2 pounds per week. I am a little nervous doing this for two reasons. One is the significant calorie decrease from what I eat now, (300 calories different) and I don't... Read more
Big Star and Ralph Lauren
Sunday, September 19, 2010      6 comments

Okay. I did my weigh in today and had lost 6 pounds. I actually wrote that I lost 4 because my scale sucks, but I can officially fit the jeans I wore before I was pregnant with my little girl. They are Ralph Lauren's size 14. They are a litt... Read more
