Today I went to lunch with my friend to an Asian restaurant. I forgot my phone at the office that has my SP app on it (where I check food calories). I started out very good with a huge salad and small amount of dressing. Then I figured I woul... Read more
I'm so angry I didn't gain a pound!
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      1 comments

I didn't say that when I ate high calorie food everyday and sat on the couch. I didn't gain a pound every week. Sometimes I didn't gain a pound in a whole month! I gained my weight gradually over time and eventually I ended up at 184 lbs. ... Read more

GRRR. I want to exercise. For the past 9 months I get severe leg cramps/spasms in both my calves. It's like charlie horses that don't go away for 30 minutes. When it hits I can't walk. It's usually about the time I get off work and it comes ... Read more

It appears my stomach is not snapping back like it did when I was younger. Back then I would gain around 70-80lbs in pregancy but within a year it would be gone and my stomach would return to normal. Now I have folds of skin that are kinda "dr... Read more

Big goals overwhelm me. I have changed to mini goals. I use my SP weight chart increments as my guide (from the report). I don't know if everyones are the same but the charted lines in my graph report are in 8 lbs increments such as...184 -... Read more

I let other life events take priority in my life. NO! I chose to let other life events take priority. Excuses make me feel better. It's easy to find excuses not to eat right or exercise. Choices make me accountable. I am overweight because... Read more

Weighing in
Monday, April 09, 2012      2 comments

I think I will start weighing myself weekly instead of daily. I'm not sure if it's a good idea, but I don't like to see the scale go up and down a pound on a daily basis. Yesterday I ate quite a bit and went over my calories. I'm not bothered... Read more
