I CAN do this
Friday, January 14, 2011      1 comments

2 days with no chocolate. 2 days staying in ranges for everything - calories, fat, carbs and protein. 2 days back on track. I did have a little bit of sweetness, because I bought some fruit-flavored Greek yogurts - holy moly, those things h... Read more
The food is outta control
Wednesday, January 12, 2011      1 comments

I have lost the food mojo. It's due to that darn sugar monster that occasionally comes and inhabits my brain - right now it's actually a chocolate monster. It sits in my brain and demands to be fed, and yet when I DO feed it with what it wants, ... Read more
Why do I always forget that exercise is awesome?
Monday, January 10, 2011      2 comments

I don't know why I routinely slack off with exercising, I really don't. Maybe I try to do too much and then get frustrated? Maybe I'm just not good at commitment? Anyway, I am loving the 28-day bootcamp. I love that I can get up in the morn... Read more
I lost 3lbs!
Thursday, January 06, 2011      2 comments

Woot! Easy come, easy go, I figure. These were probably just the last 3 lbs that got put on quickly with some holiday bingeing. But hey, they're gone. Now just 7 to go to get back to where I was, and then I can start working on actually LOSING... Read more
Back to real life - can I keep going?
Sunday, January 02, 2011      3 comments

Grad school starts up again on Tuesday. Which means back to having no time for myself, irregular meals and stress. But I need to keep the momentum going. What I am planning to do is: 10-15 mins exercise before breakfast. I need to lay mysel... Read more
I finally stepped on the scale to assess the damage
Friday, December 31, 2010      1 comments

I gained 10 lbs. It's not pretty and I'm not proud of myself. If only I'd just kept on keeping on with the tracking and the exercising. If I hadn't decided that chocolate was one of the basic food groups and that EVERYTHING is better with a driz... Read more
A little daily exercise does wonders
Monday, December 27, 2010      1 comments

I'm so glad I decided to join the 10 minute daily exercise challenge. I'd got into a rut, thinking I was too busy to exercise, but still grandly drawing up all these plans for running 3 miles or going to a yoga class, and then failing to do it. ... Read more
Back to baby steps
Friday, December 24, 2010      1 comments

OK, so I failed with tracking. Who was I to think I would have the motivation to go straight from cookie and chocolate eating to tracking perfection in a few short days? In the middle of holiday craziness? I couldn't keep it up, although, yes I ... Read more
Celebrating what I've done right
Friday, December 17, 2010      0 comments

OK, so I'm back here having recently gained a few pounds of weight. BUT I need to spend some time and focus on what I've done right. For nearly 2 years I have more or less maintained a weight loss of 20-22 pounds without much tracking. And that'... Read more
Back. Sliding
Thursday, December 16, 2010      2 comments

I was doing so well at maintaing my weight. OK, so I hadn't got to goal, but I was hanging out in the high 160's for a long time. I really felt like I had figured out how to maintain, finally, and that I'd just have to put in a tracking/calorie ... Read more
Wah. Nothing fits right!
Thursday, March 18, 2010      2 comments

I'm having one of those clothing crises. Nothing seems to fit right - I tried on so many different things this morning before settling on the one outfit that seemed to work OK. I'm at that awkward in-between-sizes stage, which I HOPE is a sign ... Read more
Gotta get back to it
Tuesday, March 09, 2010      2 comments

Bleh. I fell off the wagon and gained again. It wasn't much, and I do appear to have settled into a "new normal" of around 170-172 but now I'm going to have to recommit, and get down to another new level. It'd be nice to get to 158 or so befor... Read more
Plugging away
Thursday, January 07, 2010      1 comments

Well, I regained 4-5 pounds over the holidays, but I'm proud to say that even with that I ended the year with a 20 pound loss. OK, so I've been on Spark for nearly 2 years, and that may well be the slowest weight loss ever, but THIS time I did ... Read more
Hacker's Diet success
Monday, November 30, 2009      0 comments

So, lately, I admit I haven't been Sparking at all, but I have been following a diet, of sorts. It's called the Hacker's Diet. And really, it's just a mindset and a way of measuring your progress. You record your weight every day, but it takes ... Read more
7 months to lose 3.5 pounds
Friday, November 13, 2009      2 comments

Yup, that's how long it's taken me. Well, actually, for most of that time I was just bouncing around at the same weight. I'd go up a pound, down a pound, up a half, down a half, that sort of thing. Now, OK, for most of that time I wasn't really... Read more
