I am back from 1 1/2 months of vacation in Brazil (where I am from). I ate like a pig, enjoying all the foods from my culture and huge amounts of fresh produce and I thought I had blown my diet again (which I, in fact, did in a way). But being a... Read more

So, it´s been 3 weeks since I left for my vacations, I´m half way through them right now. I must say, it´s been tougher than I thought. I did pretty good in the 1st week, stayed way in my calorie range and made healthy choices, but of cour... Read more

Finally! Since I started my star method I've lost 10 lbs, so today I get to stick a golden star to my diary. I am a bit frustrated that I haven't gotten below 200 yet, but I still have 2 days before my set goal date to do it. Working hard o... Read more

Ok, I gave in. Since last November I've been biking like I said, but I've also been eating. I've been depressed over life's stressful events. Living on budget, trying to figure out what to do next, led me to basically sit on my couch and eat all... Read more
Stationary Bike Conquest

Today I managed to do 30 min on my new stationary bike, which is an acomplishment, since I was only being able to stay on it for 20 minutes before my butt was hurting so much I couldn't ride anymore. I found out that if I have my Ipod turned o... Read more

I am still here, struggling, but taking the steps to getting the reigns of that horse again. I gained more weight and am now back at that point of "OMG,I will do something about it". The same one that got me into SP so that's a good thing. ... Read more
Labor Day Mistakes

Went to visit the in-laws and ended up eating what I shouldn't. I didn't have 3 proper meals and just snacked all day long, which is awful, but today I did go back to running in between my walking and it feels great! Today is last day of TOM and... Read more

Today I spent a long time looking at myself at the mirror, and I've noticed how bad my shape really is. I can't believe I've let myself go this far. I've always had weight issues but being younger my skin and body in general kept together, and e... Read more

I said I'd get back on track and finally, after a whole month, today I did both my walk and my strength training (I had been walking, but not the strength) and stayed well within my limits, as well as within all my nutritional goals, which is a ... Read more

I have a new motivation, which is a short term goal of losing 20 lbs till October 30, 2007. I'll be visiting my country and I want my parents to see me healthy and in a better shape. I gained since I got married and moved here and I know it'd sh... Read more
Day 4

Ontem foi o Oscar. Pra variar eu ferrei com minha dieta de novo. Comi um pacote de Doritos que não estava nos planos, e comi DOIS pastéis de carne na casa da minha sogra, deveria ter comido um só. Mas se por um lado ainda estou enfiando o ... Read more
