I've made a lot of postive changes for me. Excuse the bullet points, but this really works best for me. 1) I went back to eating meat. Once I did this, I was immediately less hungry and had fewer cravings 2) I reduced the amou... Read more

I'm working hard, some weight is coming off. I'm still over my low point from last year, but that's another matter. No biggie. A few weeks ago, I started eating meat again. I was just so hungry all the time. I couldn't take it. Eating me... Read more

I joined a first quarter fitness challenge, so I am giving that my all. It involves a daily plank, 30 minutes of cardio 5x per week, a strength training challenge 3x per week, yoga daily, a 45 minute workout with the trainer and a weekly coffee... Read more
Making some changes

I've been too long focused on the big, sexy weight loss. It eludes me because it doesn't feel livable to me. So I am working on trying to lose .5 to 1 lb per week. If I do lose that much, I will definitely be thin by the time I am 40. More ... Read more

I've been around, doing my thing happy as can be. I am not really losing weight, but not really gaining any, either. I need to get back to a losing trend, but I think I am on the right track. I just need to do a better job of chaining... Read more

Breaking it down
Tuesday, September 18, 2012      1 comments

Right now, I have my life fragmented. I am working to make a series of good choices every day. As importantly, I am working on teaching myself that bad choices don't have to define my hour, my day, or my week. It's one choice among hundreds o... Read more

I had a pretty rude wake up call this weekend. I went to Weight Watchers and discovered that I have gained almost all of the weight I have lost back. It's very frustrating, but I have no one to blame but me. I have to stop looking for rea... Read more

I don't know that I am ok with the flexibility of Weight Watchers right now. So for now, I am following the Sparkpeople nutrition plan for vegetarians (lots of meal swapping and subbing so I don't have to spend a million dollars on groceries, t... Read more
Restarting everything
Monday, July 02, 2012      2 comments

Seeing how I should have met my goals three times over by now is very upsetting. I restarted everything and am moving forward fresh from here out. It was that or leave sparkpeople full stop. Now to stop demotivating myself.... Read more

Weight Gain
Monday, June 18, 2012      3 comments

I lose weight at a snail's pace. It's bad. I gain weight like a champion. I stopped tracking appropriately for two weeks in celebration of my birthday and gained *gasp* 8 lbs. A couple things. I know that it's likely that several of the... Read more
Just kind of out of steam, actually
Wednesday, June 13, 2012      6 comments

I don't know why. But right now, I am completely without motivation to do much. I am counting calories but not really staying within them. I am working out, but not with any vigor or enthusiasm. I'm trying to weather a storm, here. ... Read more
