If you're going to binge on anything, make it TV. (without the chips).
Current guilty pleasure: "Lost", full series, chip-less.... Read more
Stalled and Fluxing
This is the slowest, most yo-yo journey ever. I have gone through spurts in life where I dropped a ton of weight fast to steadily and this is just...ridiculous.
So I've been yo-yo-ing the same 6 to 10 pounds since January. I am not centere... Read more
So I found this online when looking up female body building. Apart from the page being littered with a bunch of other [crap], it was very inspiring. It's actually from two years ago but makes no difference to me!
So...what was my excuse?

You know, I just saw my goals (to update them). The first was "Get to a size 18".
I have been a size 18 for a while now.
The other thing is, when I updated my tracker, I have lost 41 pounds since I started this.
That's a big de... Read more
So I have been stuck at 200 for a while now, and for the past month and a half I kept playing with the same 5 or 6 pounds, up and down. Irritating. I went to 206, now I'm back to 200. I don't know what the scale will tell me on Tuesday, but my e... Read more
Well, I didn't see under 200 exactly...unless you count the idiosyncrasies of a non-digital scale.
200 pounds and wavering to 199. You TEASE!
Anyway, the goal I set out the other day overall was 2 lbs a week. That's five pounds this w... Read more
I mapped my goals today...yes, on a calendar. Get this, a PAPER calendar, and marked each Tuesday with a weekly weight loss goal as well as an "actual" loss listing. If I can manage two pounds a week until Christmas, I will look to be in the "av... Read more
I have a few body parts that I have not been on speaking terms with since the eighties. However, for some reason last night I could envision my most hated becoming my best friend.
The belly. The gut. The rolls. The bakery. The flop stop. All of... Read more
Two Week Freak Out
Well for the past two weeks or so me and the 'King have been on a first name basis. (As in, the Burger King). But I'm getting back on the horse.
Good news is, no gain. Bad news is, as could be expected, no loss either.
My goal for this next w... Read more
Motivation on Vacation
Stalled out for a week cuz frankly I am just sick of it. And when hyper-stress comes, this quickly takes the backseat. It shouldn't, but shouldn't is irrelevant.
I just keep reminding myself that this will not be a straight run. It will be a se... Read more
New Things That Derail My Workout (And Why I Will Never Meet Mr. Wonderful at the Gym)
So - I am a total of 32 pounds down since I resurrected (again). I still have not broken the 200 lb mark, and I am looking to do that in the next two to three weeks. That being said, I thought more cardio (or ANY cardio) and strength training d... Read more

Same as Before
So has anyone experienced weight loss stopping when you began with eliminating all sugars and carbs (other than veggie carbs) and then added some (and I mean some) of those things back in from natural sources - while keeping within the prescribe... Read more
The endless journey into the navel...
So as I am learning more and more about internal things being connected to eternal things, I have marked my weight today. Twenty-two pounds down. I decided I'd like to see 190 before July 1st. The last time I saw that number was 1994....
