My Reward When I Meet Goal
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      7 comments

I will turn the big 5-0 next June, so I have fourteen months to lose weight so I will enter that decade healthier and fitter than I entered my current decade of life. I tend to buy myself presents for my milestone birthdays, such as the Alexandr... Read more
What's the Opposite of Anorexic?
Sunday, April 15, 2012      7 comments

I'm far from being anorexic, but I've often heard that people who suffer from anorexia look in the mirror and see a fat person even when they are dangerously thin. Somehow their perception of their appearance is skewed. I think I have the opposi... Read more
A Roomier Closet
Friday, April 13, 2012      8 comments

Earlier this week I tried on some pants in a smaller size that were back in the depths of my closet and they fit! I've pulled a few more out during the week and they've fit as well. A little bit snug when I'm sitting, but much nicer than the bag... Read more
Am I Built Funny ?
Monday, April 09, 2012      3 comments

When I look in the mirror I can see that I have weight to lose, but everything seems to be decently in proportion. But then this weekend I tried to go buy some new bras and now I'm really starting to wonder if I'm built funny or something. Am I ... Read more
A Renewed Goal
Sunday, April 08, 2012      4 comments

Last fall the stepson of the guy I was dating announced his engagement and they were planning a wedding for this coming September. Rather quickly I decided that my goal would be to lose at least thirty pounds for the wedding just to give myself ... Read more
Dressing Room Mirrors
Friday, April 06, 2012      6 comments

What is it about dressing room mirrors? I swear they make you look a lot fatter and blobbier than you look in your own mirrors at home. I know that I'm not a svelte size four, so I don't expect to look that way in the mirror, but why do I ... Read more
Salad Sabotage
Thursday, April 05, 2012      4 comments

I really need to take my own advice from time to time. Our receptionist at work is constantly eatting salads and wondering why she's not losing any weight. From time to time I tell her that just because something is called a salad, it does... Read more
TransAmerica Walk - April Goals
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      3 comments

I stole the idea for this blog post from 2BFREE2LIVE. Hopefully she won't mind - imitation *is* the sincerest form of flattery, right? I started the TransAmerica walk in January, so I am still close to the start in Virginia. The entire wa... Read more
Cell Phone Rant
Monday, April 02, 2012      5 comments

Okay, I know that it's a free country, but when there are a dozen open treadmills, why do the chatty people who can't leave their cell phones in their locker have to pick the treadmill right next to me? And then chat incessantly and loudly for t... Read more
Quarterly Report for April
Sunday, April 01, 2012      3 comments

I took some measurements back on New Year's Day so I'd have something to guage my progress by other than just looking at what the scale has to say. I'm glad I did, because I was really pleased with my progress this past quarter. I lost a f... Read more
The Best Laid Plans...
Saturday, March 31, 2012      2 comments

After a stressful week at work I was looking forward to the weekend and getting caught up on a bunch of errands. I had my list all prepared of the stops along the way and had assembled various coupons and sale papers and had mapped out my route ... Read more
A Stronger Heart :-)
Thursday, March 29, 2012      4 comments

I struggled a bit on the treadmill last night. I was trying to increase my pace and apparently it was too much for me. My shin started to hurt and because of an old injury I've learned to listen to my shin. I don't want to be stupid and cause da... Read more

I found this article, titled “Why Losing Weight Doesn't Make It All Better” while surfing the internet, and it gave me a lot of food for thought. www.huffingtonpost.com/m

Stupid Scale
Monday, March 26, 2012      5 comments

I've decided to officially banish the scale from the bathroom until next week's weigh-in. I'm too compulsive about checking my weight and was thrilled when I checked it two days ago and I was down 2 lbs. Then I checked it yesterday and I was dow... Read more
I'll Sleep Like a Log Tonight!
Sunday, March 25, 2012      0 comments

I've been sleeping really well since I started exercising regularly, but after all the fresh air and exercise I got today, I expect to sleep like a log tonight. And I'll probably be sore, so I better go pop some Advil while I'm thinking of it. ... Read more
