I was rereading my last blog called "Forgetting the fall of 2012" ... Actually, I could have added "Forgetting 2013". It was a terrible, terrible, terrible year... First, I was sick all year long and the doctors kept giving me all sorts of pills... Read more

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      2 comments

Here I am... once again. Why have I been away? Well, the usual thing, going off the "wagon" + a sudden addiction to Pinterest (major, major addiction!!! much more manageable now...) + sickness and fatigue, etc. But I am now rested, back on... Read more
Moral licensing
Friday, September 07, 2012      4 comments

I find that my Fitbit is really helpful in keeping me on track. I did indulge a bit this week, but I logged everything in and I realized I was still within my alloted calorie limit. Usually, this type of "indulging" would have driven me into a f... Read more

Once again from my book on willpower: "When we turn willpower challenges into measures of moral worth, being good gives us permission to be bad. For better self-control, forget virtue, and focus on goals and values" "The next time you ... Read more

I am down 7 pounds since the beginning of August. I'm pretty happy about that but these last two days have been a little more challenging, I am within my calorie range but eating stuff that I shouldn't really be eating like... ice cream and frie... Read more

My Fitbit has turned me into the Eveready bunny! I walk and walk... and keep on walking! It's my fourth day on Fitbit and my enthusiasm is still there. So I am right on point with my food intake and my exercise. I'm sure it will pay off at ... Read more

So I've been absent from Sparks for a couple of months... and I gained 10 pounds! Will I ever learn? I have now been back for over a week. Sparks is my anchor but I've also put in place some other strategies to keep me on track. I still ha... Read more
Bread.... my eternal foe!
Tuesday, March 13, 2012      5 comments

Ah! bread and all things crusty ... with a moist dough... I am trying desperately to control my intake but it is so difficult. I keep only the vilest of breads in my house. Whether it is sliced bread, tortillas, english muffins, bagels... I know... Read more
Support is essential...

Thanks to all who gave me support yesterday. It is really helpful. I am doing better today. It's 1pm and the food intake is good. I forgot a meeting with my boss this morning. That NEVER happens to me... I am always 10 min. early for a... Read more

So I went off the wagon for exactly 24 hours. The nice thing about it is that I knew I was doing while I was doing it!! What prompted this? Well I had been perfect for two weeks - logging food, exercising - and not only had I not lost weight but... Read more

Once again, it's been awhile since my last blog but I have not dropped out. I am still doing good... still under 250, at 248. I am very proud to say that the holidays have not added one pound to my frame! Now, as for 2012, I am aiming to l... Read more
Two month vacation...

So I took two months off from blogging... but not to worry. I am still going strong at the gym and keeping my weight under 250. I am trying to get to 240 but I've had a lot of ups and downs on the way there. During those two months, I've be... Read more
