NSVs color me happy
Wednesday, August 26, 2009      7 comments

Well, that's what they're supposed to do, right? I got my Old Navy jeans yesterday. First, let me just clarify: skinny is just the cut; it doesn't mean that I'm skinny! I think their skinny jeans go up to a size 16 or so. But they did fit, ... Read more

It's a sad, but true, fact that as your weight goes down, so must your calorie consumption. Your appetite will decrease, too, but the two aren't always in line. At least not for me. So I play around with portion size. How much can I downsiz... Read more
A slippery slope
Monday, August 24, 2009      5 comments

It's a slippery slope from a slight weight gain to either losing control or giving up and gaining back a lot of weight. I got quite a few comments with my latest weight gains to relax, that I'm so disciplined that I'd lose the weight in no time.... Read more
Checks & balances
Saturday, August 22, 2009      4 comments

If the US can be based on checks & balances, why not our healthy lifestyles? In the book "Naturally Thin", Bethenny Frankel writes about viewing your diet as a check book: if you have a really rich meal, you balance it out by eating lighter at ... Read more
Are you too comfortable?
Friday, August 21, 2009      8 comments

I swear yesterday's WW meeting was tailored just for me. Basically, it was about getting back on track. Motivation doesn't come hard to me, yet the scale shows that I've been off track for a while. My leader shared with us her theory why so... Read more
Healthy cravings
Thursday, August 20, 2009      4 comments

Who says the only things that taste good aren't good for you? I really do get cravings for healthy foods -- sometimes, anyway. There was the time not long ago when I was staring at the grape tomatoes I'd bought to put into a salad for compa... Read more
What my parents taught me
Wednesday, August 19, 2009      10 comments

I've never told her, but my mom has always been the moving force behind my wanting to lose weight -- now & all those years ago. Because I don't want to look like she did at 50, or 60, or . . . you get the picture. My parents have taught me... Read more
The climb

"Cause there's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be a uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waiting on the other side It'... Read more
Through a cracked mirror
Monday, August 17, 2009      3 comments

Sometimes I feel that's how I view myself. Funny how your perspective can change hour to hour, not even day to day! Yesterday morning I was truly feeling as though my pooch has expanded. Definitely one of the areas of my body that doesn't s... Read more
I impressed him
Saturday, August 15, 2009      8 comments

Usually my husband comes home & asks what I did that day. Even on days when I feel I've worked hard, once I actually say it aloud, it doesn't sound like much. Not yesterday! I impressed even him. Yesterday I: 1. Did the usual morning s... Read more
My game plan
Friday, August 14, 2009      7 comments

My parents are coming up for the day tomorrow; they might stay overnight. So yes, despite my recent setback, I am baking again. The chocolate chip crumb cake is already done. Move over Enteman's! Yummy. I had half a piece. My plan at the mo... Read more
Blindsided again
Thursday, August 13, 2009      5 comments

I feel as tho all I do lately is whine and vent. And no, this isn't a ploy for sympathy or comments (altho of course both are always welcome). The scale is moving in the wrong direction, and I really can't for the life of me figure out why. Sure... Read more
Exercise is a funny thing
Wednesday, August 12, 2009      8 comments

I've had a nagging sore throat for the last few days. I was really hoping it was just an allergy, and maybe it is, but it now it seems to be the beginning of another cold. I don't normally I get many colds, so it's a little frustrating. My ... Read more
Losing myself in a bowl of batter
Tuesday, August 11, 2009      4 comments

No, I have not gone off the deep end and chowed down on some cookie dough or cake batter; don't worry. I still have a lot of organizing to do in this house. A LOT of organizing. We're mostly unpacked, with the exception of books that have nowher... Read more
What do you call baby turkeys?
Monday, August 10, 2009      8 comments

While I never felt I got off track, I must have subtly. I could feel the difference in my clothes. 3 lbs may not seem like a lot, but when you're as short as I am, it is -- in fact, it's almost 10% of the weight I've lost. This past week I'... Read more
