Thursday, August 01, 2019      3 comments

I increased my water intake and it's making a difference. Down another couple of pounds. And I can't thing of another time that I lost weight this week of my cycle. I am too tired to make much sense, so this is it for tonight. ... Read more
Day Three....It's Working
Thursday, August 01, 2019      3 comments

Being down a pound is a wonderful way to start the day. I was not as hungry today. I didn't even finish my lunch. It was easy to forego the kids leftovers. I had no temptation to snack between meals.. But at's still jus... Read more
Day Two is in the books
Wednesday, July 31, 2019      2 comments

I have zero side effects. It's not what I'd expected. I'd expected to feel more full. Instead I feel less hungry. Does that even make sense? I still eat a full meal. And I have a desire to finish what the kids don't eat, but I am a... Read more
Plenity Day One

Today was my start day. Again. This time will be different. Again. I decided I needed more than a food log this time, but a journal. Where better to journal my efforts than here? I had so many thoughts throughout the day and whe... Read more

Being the mother of teenage boys takes more patience than I have most days. Today was one of those days. Instead of eating when I wasn't hungry, I went to the library. Now it's after 9:00 and I need to eat a small dinner. Hope eating this la... Read more
I was SO hungry today
Sunday, November 15, 2009      4 comments

I was so hungry that I cheated. I ate some pretzel chips. I'm glad they were in individual serving packs or I would have eaten the whole bag. Good thing I didn't have any candy in the house. When I looked back through my journal I realized i... Read more
Instead of eating all day I read recipe books

I'm planning a big Thanksgiving dinner. I'll be in P3 and I am having many of my neighbors over. I am planning on offering buffet style healthy options. Not everything is completely carb-free. Here is the menu. If you want me any of the rec... Read more

I am happy to report that I had a .4 lb loss this morning. I had "burger crumbles" as my protein for both lunch and dinner. Friday is grocery shopping day. I forgot to eat before going to the store and the smells were just driving me craz... Read more
i just can't do this anymore!

I've said it before, so most of you already know that I am not a huge fan of eating meat, chicken & fish. Each morning when I see the scale giving me a lower number or the tape measure closing further around any section of my body, I was able t... Read more
Temptation is all around me ...

...and I have nobody to blame but myself. I had my Physical Science students building molecule models with marshmallows. I packed chocolate covered orange peels for my son's lunch and he never eats in at school. He always waits to eat... Read more
My first gain this round
Sunday, November 08, 2009      3 comments

Last round I was losing 1/2 - 1 lb every day during the first 12 days. Then I stalled for the rest of the round. I stuck to the diet. I wasn't sure if it was because I was hiking 6 miles a day or because I really didn't do well on the load da... Read more

But I just want to raid the pantry of all the goodies. Good thing that there aren't any goodies to be had. Well, there are the 2 boxes of melba toast on the top shelf. WHy am I craving carbs? I didn't even get my 500 calories today. I h... Read more
TGI Thursday
Thursday, November 05, 2009      0 comments

Thursday is always a hectic day, but rewarding. I am busy all day, but I always see progress. Today was no different. I started work with my usual coffee & apple. The apple I brought to work was no good. I took 2 bites and threw it away... Read more

I got on the scale this morning & it actually read below 130 lbs!! I thought the batteries needed to be changed. I have been hungrier today than I have been so far. Hmmmm....the number on the scale kept me motivated. Let's see what it te... Read more
Where did the weekend go?
Sunday, November 01, 2009      1 comments

I feel like the white rabbit. Even with an "extra" hour, there still isn't enough time in the day to get everything done. I spent so much time helping my kids with their homework, that I have no energy left to clean the house or do my own "hom... Read more
