Feeling Blue
Saturday, September 05, 2009      4 comments

Yesterday I went over-calorie, with the result that I gained two pounds. Although I hated to see that, what really bothers me is that the reason I went over calorie was that I was feeling bored and depressed, so I used food as a comfort. That's... Read more
I fell off the wagon
Sunday, August 23, 2009      8 comments

I posted this on a couple of my message boards, and then I thought I should put it on my log too. I gained two pounds this weekend! I completely fell off the wagon, drinking wine and having cheese and pizza. But I'm telling myself that was just ... Read more

Today, someone posted on a message board that they had bought a couple of pairs of Capris, but she wasn't sure if she should wear them to work - she was afraid people would laugh. I replied, "Congrats to you, you're doing great! And you should ... Read more
I LOVE SPARKPEOPLE

Today I posted the following entry to the Baby Boomers Message Board on AOL, using the same title as I'm using here: Back in November, Laneita referred me to www.sparkpeople.com. It's a diet program - excuse me - it's a lifestyle change pr... Read more
I'm in ONEDERLAND!!!
Thursday, July 02, 2009      4 comments

After over 10 years, I'm finally under 200. I'm so happy, I keep repeating 198, 198, 198 like a mantra. I still have a long way to go, but for the first time, I really think I can do it! I'm particularly proud that I went through a break-up with... Read more
Goodbye April
Saturday, May 02, 2009      2 comments

April was a hard month for me, but it's over. I hit a plateau and had some ups and downs and didn't meet my month's goal of 207 (I weighed in at 208.3). And I got dumped, which made it harder. Always before when something like that happened, I w... Read more

April was a bad month. I hit a plateau and didn't make my month-end goal of 207. (I weighed 208.3) I got dumped and was fighting the blues because of that. BUT--this time I did NOT turn to food and/or wine for comfort. I refused to let another m... Read more

Hi My Name Is Linda
Friday, April 24, 2009      3 comments

My name is Linda and I'm a (fill in the blank) addict. Well, I've never smoked cigarettes, thank God, because by now I'm sure I'd have lung cancer. Moderation just hasn't been in my vocabulary. My drug of choice was wine, and cheese. Sounds... Read more

A Milestone
Wednesday, January 28, 2009      1 comments

It's been a month since I've had any wine and table salt. (Well, to be honest, I still put a little salt on eggs, but other than that, I've kept the salt shaker off the table.) And in that time, I've lost about 8 pounds. I feel really good about... Read more
