This. Is. Hard.

I started a low carb diet 10 months ago. Through Christmas I was doing amazing. Then slowly but surely I starting cheating: not as precise in weighing and measuring, sloppy journaling of foods, enjoying too many low carb snacks, reading less art... Read more
Just north of my first Sparkpeople goal
Tuesday, March 31, 2020      4 comments

I've been dancing just north of my first Sparkpeople goal. I've come within a pound of that 190 goal. Now I'm up 2 more. Can I blame it on coronavirus? Can I celebrate all the other goals I've reached? I'll answer "yes" to both of those, and I'l... Read more

My original goal when introduced to Sparkpeople was to go from 246 pounds, down to 190 by Leap Year Day. Then I quit logging in because I was failing m... Read more
2020 vision in my weight loss journey
Wednesday, February 05, 2020      5 comments

Yes, I realize Feb 5th isn't technically the day to make New Year's resolutions. But I wanted to get down in writing some of the goals I see myself reaching in 2020. Now that I've entered Onederland, one goal is to never see 200 again! Sparkpeo... Read more
I'm Ok with not getting to my New Year's goal
Wednesday, January 01, 2020      0 comments

Back in August, when I began this low carb diet, I made a couple of weight loss goals and a few non-scale ones. I lost 15 pounds between my first and second appointments with my endocrinologist, met my birthday goal (down 25 pounds...to below t... Read more
Getting back to it.

Since Thanksgiving I've been eating more carbs and cheating more and more on my low carb diet. I can't stop thinking about food. Then I read yesterday how someone said maintaining is even harder than losing weight. And don't something like 90% r... Read more
Water water and more water
Thursday, December 05, 2019      5 comments

Endocrinologist said to drink water. I got in 8 cups a day. She said more, so I upped it to 10. Still more, so trying to drink 12 cups a day! Rarely get them all in. I think I need to concentrate on drinking in the morning, more than a cup an ho... Read more
My struggle to exercise

Today is week 14 on my newest walk with weight loss. I've been doing pretty good with my eating choices, but still can't get myself to exercise consistently. I moved the stationary bike into my bedroom, in hopes I'd hop on occasionally throughou... Read more
Ready for my first low carb Thanksgiving!
Wednesday, November 27, 2019      2 comments

I've read and researched. I've made low carb stuffing and a couple of desserts. I've got a hubby doing this diet with me, and a daughter-in-law on a gluten free diet. I don't know whether I'll let myself eat the gravy and try my mom's pie. I t... Read more

I've written down several recipes, purchased the ingredients, and plan to make small samples this week, to see which I'll make for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Learning to live low carb has been an adventure, but I confess I'm nervous about the s... Read more
Eating out too often
Sunday, November 10, 2019      5 comments

So, this week I have obligations to eat out 3 times. Friday at Beefeaters, where I did well on calories, but went over in carbs. But I didn't destroy the rest of my day, just got back on plan. Today was Noodles and Company, and had half a portio... Read more
L1VEL1FE for the ONES
Saturday, November 09, 2019      2 comments

Yesterday I blew my diet, or so I thought. A huge amount of carbs, when I'm supposed to stay at 30 a day. But I didn't blow it. I enjoyed life, and with one failed meal, I didn't blow the rest of the day. Today is a new day, and I finally did so... Read more
I just can't get myself to consistently exercise!
Thursday, November 07, 2019      4 comments

I restarted my weight loss on August 27, 2019. I've been eating low carb, and doing GREAT, but except for a few days on and off, I'm not getting any better at working out. Today's tip got me thinking. I'll quote it here: "Research shows that pr... Read more
No-excuse No-vember
Friday, November 01, 2019      4 comments

I've been doing well on my eating, and the weight has been steadily coming off. But I just can't seem to exercise! Not even 10 minutes a day. I read a November 1st post today, asking us what our goals for November were. I didn't have one! Met my... Read more
