I am planning to go on a an elimination diet, like Body Ecology. I say "planning" because even though I wanted to start yesterday, I realized that we have so much food in the house that has to get eaten first. So I am eating the diet during the ... Read more

Why does my friend always buy flop cake? It is of the devil. It is crumbly and filo-dough-y, and full of sweet soft squishy cream. Oh dear I want some now. And Pub Cheese, oh Pub Cheese, why are you so tasty and cheesy and soft on a nice crunchy... Read more

I'm sorry for not having been around lately! I missed all my Sparkfriends! I've been so busy that I haven't had time for tracking. I have been walking a lot, but I don't feel like the eating as as under control as I'd like. Wait, let me get the ... Read more

Kind of neat to see my progress: an increased amount of walking each week (this is a log for our "wellness" program at work)! I am indeed pleased with my baby steps. ... Read more

My weekend went pretty well. I have two problems, breakfast and evenings/parties. In the morning on the weekends I like to nosh, which is OK when I have whole wheat bread or bagels or Mom's cereal, but not OK when I have Cocoa Rice Crispies left... Read more

You will all be happy to hear that I did go for a walk at lunch yesterday and it felt great. I didn't go for a walk today, though. Still feeling really lazy. I'm planning to go after work. I also went to my favorite indulgent burger place, ... Read more

My therapist prescribed exercise. I of course launched myself into this or that or the other, but she is insisting on baby steps. I committed to 30 mins of walking M-Th. She asked me how I was going to be motivated to actually do the walking and... Read more

Let's pretend that last week didn't happen. Except that last week not happening made the previous two weeks not happen and I'm back to where I started. Damn. My eating wasn't all that terrible overall last week, but each day there was... Read more

(Choosing food over food-like substances) For six years, foremost in my head has always been calorie counting. I rated foods by how much they “cost,” calorie-wise, even when I wasn’t actively tracking. After just three weeks, I have done a ... Read more

I almost need a belt for my jeans! They are the one pair I own, which I only wear on Fridays, and I'm pretty sure they were not this loose before. I can stick a hand in on either hip. I'll have to see how they are next week. I was at a clot... Read more

I decided to make a list of my (bad for me) food weaknesses. These are not only bad foods, but the kind that I can't just have a little of, because I enjoy them the most when I binging on them. It is sad how often I consider letting myself go fo... Read more
