I guess I am in a plateau. My weight hasn't changed in a couple of weeks. I feel ok with that. I'd love to drop 5 more pounds, but right now I think it is important to be comfortable with where I am. I don't want to live a diet mentality. I... Read more

I let it get me yesterday. Boredom, that is. I had a day at work with little to do and I wasn't very ambitious in looking for things to do, so I was bored. I came home and after dinner DH was watching a TV program about hazardous airports tha... Read more

I lost 2 pounds last week. I haven't lost 2 pounds in a week for a long, long time. I think the key was taking a calorie counting book to the cabin with me. One of my spark friends suggested this! What a great idea. I wrote all my food down... Read more

When I go to our mountain cabin I have no way to track my food calorie count. I write everything down and put it in the Spark tracker when I get home. I am almost always over my allotted calories when I do this. I just can't seem to judge how... Read more

When I was 270 the thought of weighing one hundred and "something" pounds seemed unreal to me. It was a goal, but I didn't know if it would be obtainable. Now, a year later, I weigh one hundred and something pounds and I still am having troubl... Read more

Starvation Mode
Monday, June 21, 2010      8 comments
