As I was watching Celebrity Fit Club last night it dawned on me I was seven pounds away from Bobby Brown and 13% higher in body fat and he is 4" taller than me. I knew I had to change my ways. I decided to go cold turkey on the coffee and chocol... Read more

Unfortunately, I am only 22 pounds away from where I began last year. I feel I am slowly killing myself with food. When I drink coffee, I can feel my veins constricting, and when I had too much sodium I get an instant headache and my hands feel ... Read more

I have to handle life's disappointments and curve balls more gracefully. I was overeating because the job I was to start was cancelled due to budgetary constraints. My father died and I feel rejected by his family, and I'm not sure I should trus... Read more

This week I will not purchase any Little Debbie snacks and my son will eat an apple or banana a day for a snack. He has had illness after illness since starting pre-k and I already know sugar suppresses the immune system. This week is a sugarles... Read more

Wednesday, December 03, 2008      0 comments

I am almost at my goal weight, but I haven't even begun the transformation in terms of relationship with food. Still use it as my emotional crutch, and if I can't begin a different relationship with food then I'll always be on a diet. I've been ... Read more

Troubled goal
Friday, September 05, 2008      1 comments

You will think by now that this will get easier, and I would have a different outlook with food, diet, and exercise. But I want to eat like yesterday, and still maintain my present weight. It is getting harder as I near my goal weight and someti... Read more
Measure of Success

My measure of success this week is not the amount of pounds lost on the scale, but not going over my nutritional ranges. No overeating. Not going over calories, fats, carbs, protein, and sodium. For the first time in God knows how long I hav... Read more

I was experiencing dieter's burnout, so I took another day off, yes another day, to clear my mind and rest my body. I realized that I quickly went through diet stage 2, and didn't build a healthy foundation because I was concentrating on weight ... Read more
A Much Needed Break
Saturday, May 31, 2008      0 comments

O.K. I will be honest. I have gained 4 pounds recently and haven't changed my weight ticker. I think that's what you call it. For the past 2 weeks I've been overeating and overexercising. Four hours of working out and eating past 2000 calories w... Read more

Mmmmm..... Do I really need that Hershey's milk chocolate bar I'm craving right now or should I eat oatmeal with rice milk that will give me nutrients and fiber which will fill me up longer? Rice milk is sweet and delicious with cereals and oatm... Read more
