Thursday, September 01, 2016      3 comments

First off, how the hell is it already September?! Anyway, I wanted to talk about running today. I've been saying for awhile now that I need to sign up for something longer than a 5K because I need something to train for. When I run on my o... Read more

My dad has been diabetic since I was a teenager. It's part of the reason I've attempted to stay active and healthy(ish), because I don't want to become a Type 2 diabetic and rely on insulin and face all the medical problems that can come along w... Read more

Well, it happened. i gained weight instead of losing it even though I was still working hard. But. It was 0.2 pounds. ZERO POINT TWO. It's OK. It's not ideal, but it's OK. Could be water. Could be hormones. Things fluctua... Read more

Week 1: YIPPEE! Week 2: YIPPEE! Week 3: OH NO, A SMALLER LOSS THAN THE FIRST TWO, WOE IS ME. Week 4: YIPPEE! Now week 5 is underway and the scale hasn't moved down at all. In fact in a couple of mid-week sneak peaks, it's gone up. ... Read more

The first time I made a real effort to lose weight, I didn't track anything. I just started going to the gym regularly and eating 'better' for whatever definition of better I knew at the time. It was slow, but it worked. I think it partially wor... Read more

Good news! Week four has me down another 1.8 pounds, bringing the 4-week total to 8 pounds. It might be a bit start-and-stop, but averaging 2 pounds per week is juuuuuuuuuust fine with me. I know this is going to take a long time, but I'll be he... Read more

Which is much better than the other way around, no? For some reason, the last three days I have been fantasizing about ice cream. I resisted at first, but I firmly believe in the all things in moderation attitude, so yesterday I finally ca... Read more
Disappointed, but Moving On ... A Lesson in Perspective
Monday, August 15, 2016      4 comments

I knew three pounds per week would not be sustainable. I knew seven pounds in two weeks was a freaking miracle. I knew it would slow down. I know how my body is, and how it reacts, and that there would be a pause and that's when I always get fru... Read more

Sunday, July 31, 2016      1 comments

I knew the weekends would be the hardest, because I am a creature of habit and weekends aren't nearly as structured. This weekend was no different, but the big news is I proved that i can roll with the punches and not screw it all up. Yest... Read more

I have to admit, it's getting a little easier. I'm halfway through week one of Nutrisystem! I get to eat more after the first week, and get 'flex meals' so I'm really looking forward to Wednesday. :) Yesterday's Food: Breakfast: Cinna... Read more
Day 2
Friday, July 29, 2016      4 comments

Isn't there a thing they say about AA, like "you gotta work the program?" That's pretty much how I'm feeling about Nutrisystem. Day 2 is in the books, and to give myself a little added push I've printed out and posted some motivational signs aro... Read more

I have been gaining and losing the same 15 pounds or so since around 2005. I feel good when I get to the bottom of the 15, and then sabotage myself and end up at the top of the 15, and then I see that number and kick it back into gear. I have be... Read more
