Weigh is creeping the wrong way so I'm going to try logging again. Man the app is a lot better than the last time I used it!... Read more
Elimination Diet Week 2
Monday, November 24, 2014      4 comments

Two weeks in and this isn't helping at all as yet. I'll give it the full month if I have to but if not I'm going to insist on a referral to a gastroenterologist. I'm not doing a very good job of keeping on my calorie goals. I'm not allowed to ... Read more
Elimination trials
Thursday, October 23, 2014      6 comments

So I've had GI issues for years. I chalked them up to "tummy issues" and lactose intolerance and just didn't think about them a whole lot one way or another. But we're thinking about starting a family and even pretty religious application of L... Read more

What do you do when you're hungry? I mean, so often I eat because I'm peckish or bored or something looks delicious. At those times I can keep my calorie goals in mind and choose not to eat. But when I'm straight up hungry I wonder, is it goo... Read more

I've never thought of myself as a yo-yo dieter. Heck, I've never really thought of myself as a dieter. I've been dissatisfied with my weight as long as I can remember, even when I was the weight that is now my goal weight, but I've also never ... Read more
Rats, Foiled Again (by myself)
Thursday, November 03, 2011      6 comments

So I haven't been tracking for a while (in fact the last time I was tracking consistently was a week at the beginning of last month). But I have been getting my butt to the gym a few times a week. Which sounds good in principle and I've added ... Read more

I'm annoyed with myself and with the world. That's maybe overstating things but I really want to be ten pounds down. I'm within a pound. I've already bought my reward and told people I'm down ten pounds when they comment on how good I'm looki... Read more
Feeling it
Friday, September 16, 2011      6 comments

I don't really know what's different this time. I've been on SP before. I've lost some weight before and thought "cool, this works" but it didn't stick and I went back to my regular old ways and the weight crept up and I grew to hate mirrors. ... Read more
Stay on Target...
Thursday, September 08, 2011      4 comments

Was dead on target for all my nutrition goals today, which is nice feeling (ok I lie, I went over on fiber, it is not something that worries me). Dinner was mushroom pierogi from this neat little Polish convenience store that opened up no... Read more
Rain or Shine These Hips Will Hoop
Wednesday, September 07, 2011      7 comments

It's still raining but I have a new toy and I must play. It's like a new bike on the day after Christmas. You can see the wet results of some rain dance hooping. It fel... Read more

Well last week didn't go quite as planned. We went out a few times with friends and then had a wedding over the weekend so there were a few days I was over calories and then a few days I wasn't tracking but I thought given I was in NYC those da... Read more
Trigger Foiled

Today was a rather busy, annoying and productive day as I ran around like a mad woman getting things we may need if the world decides it wants to end in water, rather than fire or ice, tomorrow. This involved eleven different stores (twelve sto... Read more
Running Strong
Thursday, August 25, 2011      3 comments

I repeated W5D2 of C25K today and something weird happened. Even though I had the treadmill set for hills at a higher intensity than ever before, it felt good. I felt strong. I can't say it was easy the whole way but I never got the point whe... Read more
So Much Sushi
Wednesday, August 24, 2011      4 comments

There's a new all you can eat al a carte sushi place dangerously close to my house. I say dangerously because we went there for the first time tonight and oh how I ate. I planned for it, had about 1100 calories to blow (I mean lunch was litera... Read more
Milestone Feeling Momentous
Wednesday, August 24, 2011      4 comments

I got on the scale this morning and found I've lost 6 pounds since I came back to SP. This shouldn't have been a surprise. It's one pound down from the last time I got on the scale. I've been really gradual with my weight loss thus far, a lot... Read more
