4 days of exercise in a row! This morning I didn't work out, and I'd been getting it right out of the way within the first couple hours of getting up the last few days. I almost talked myself out of doing any, but I set aside the excuses a... Read more

Feel better, do better. Do better, feel better. This one is a cycle, which I know is true. I feel better when I do better, and when I feel better, I want to do even better! Drinking water, getting exercise, getting my eating under control!... Read more

I have been stuck in a terrible cycle of binging, beating myself up for it, feeling stressed over it, and doing it some more. I've tried getting out of it any number of times, probably the majority of mornings I think, today I can break the cycl... Read more

What a slog this week has been so far! I was overly concerned with the scale, and thankfully it finally moved, but not by much. I am working on this phase 2 thing, and will get back to my workout routine tomorrow. Chris has been home the last 3... Read more

The appeal of the south-beach diet for me, at first, were all the stories I'd read of the quick weight loss in the beginning. In that regard, it did not disappoint, I lost 6 pounds in the first 2 weeks. Pretty good! Over my 3rd week, wherein I'v... Read more

I went to house-sit for my dad while he was on vacation. My job was to keep the place warm, which conveniently coincided with a nice cold snap. He heats his home with wood, so that was a lot of work! It's funny the things you take for granted, I... Read more

What is it about delineating a new beginning, that makes things feel so motivating, fresh and good? It's probably day 774 of trying to get my weight in check, really! Haha but I guess it has more to do with focusing on the present, and leaving p... Read more

Having a pretty good week! The first phase of my South Beach diet will be over on Monday, so that's going to be interesting. From there it's a trial and error thing from what I've read, to learn more about what foods will help keep me losing, an... Read more

I am surprised how well this is going! I never thought I'd enjoy cutting out bread and other starches, but I don't even miss eating them! I am such a bread, pasta and potato lover. In the time leading up to deciding to try this out, I was ... Read more

After entirely too many day 1's lately, I've made it to a day THREE! I came across a new diet book that I was considering buying, when I realized that I'd already bought one a long time ago, and still hadn't committed to trying the diet. Since I... Read more

My holiday "break" did a bit more damage to my progress than I'd hoped! It always seems to take me awhile to get myself back into the weight loss mode once I derail myself. I think back to when I was making great progress, and all the various he... Read more

December has been a slow let-go of all my healthier habits. So I gained weight, and today tip in at 200.4. My goal for the month was to lose at least 7 pounds, and instead I've gained 3. I have started writing a blog about dropping my effo... Read more
