After my triumphant lululemon experience, my weigh in this month puts me up one pound, back to 180, which is very frustrating. I did not have a bad month, I pretty much had a normal month, if anything, I exercised more the last couple of weeks b... Read more

Saturday, October 20, 2012      4 comments

Well….it’s certainly not the only reward, there are others that are a lot more important, like better health, more energy, more confidence, but it was a BIG one for me. Today made all the hard work worthwhile. (I am so far behind read... Read more

Wow, can you believe that it’s September already? While I like the extra light and abundance of veggies at my farmer’s market, Fall is my favorite season when it cools down and the leaves change. Here are some veggies from the farmer's market: ... Read more
Frustrated and Discouraged
Saturday, August 04, 2012      12 comments

For this first time in this weight loss journey, I have a 4 lb gain, and I am frustrated because there is no clear reason why. (It would be easier if I knew that I had had a really bad month) I feel like an idiot saying that, but I have not real... Read more

Update: A Mélange!
Tuesday, May 15, 2012      4 comments

It’s been a couple of weeks since I did a blog so I thought that I would do an update. It’s been a mixed couple of weeks since my last weigh in. I’ll start with the bad news. I’ve been under a TON of stress between my job and my personal... Read more
Disappointed but trying not to be too discouraged
Saturday, April 28, 2012      6 comments

Today was my monthly weigh-in, and I found out that I lost 2 lbs. This was disappointing because I did SO well this month, and after losing 1 lb last month was hoping for at least my usual 3 lb loss, hopefully more. I was good about exercise as ... Read more

Since my last blog, I am feeling re-motivated, just about the idea about getting back to what was working for me before. Last night I sat down and looked over my food diary for the past month. I keep one on paper, and at the top of each pag... Read more
