On Track and On Top of the World :)
How great do you feel when you've been doing well? Eating healthy, exercising, full of energy, looking good, pumped up with self-esteem. All of a sudden my big belly has shrunk back down close to pre-binge size, and best of all I'm getting clo... Read more
I've Been Learning...
Sure, I've gone on plan, off plan, on plan off, and now on again...but I like to think of it as a zig-zag that keeps getting closer to being a straight line. Each time I go off, I hope I go a little LESS off - noticing portion size, being able ... Read more
1. No deviating from food plan, period.
2. Go to gym after work before going home.
There. Don't have to debate about it. The answers are right there.... Read more
What Works for Me
CHALLENGES. I haven't proved to myself yet that I have made this a permanent lifestyle. I can sum up my entire SP experience like this:
Jan-April 2007: ON program. First time ever getting my weight below upper 140s. Strict, perfectionis... Read more
I will meticulously track and eat 1,475-1,525 balanced, healthy calories per day tomorrow (Wednesday), Thursday, and Friday. On Saturday we are going to an early Thanksgiving dinner, and I won't track but I will make good choices. Saturday nig... Read more
Gotta Do This One Thing...
I MUST spread out my food to make it last longer, take more/longer water/gum/plain old no eating breaks in between, and DON'T eat extra at night.
Even if I do this one little thing, I will be doing better than I have been!... Read more
Without really trying, I have managed to get back down to 147 from 152 in a few days. I do believe it is possible to keep my weight in the 140s while eating basically what I want with lots of exercise. Just a little control in the eating depar... Read more

Flutie 5K Road Race
Today I ran the Flutie 5K Road Race (proceeds to benefit the Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc.) in Natick. The race was 9 hours ago and results still haven't been posted, but I think I was just under a half hour.
Racing is great... Read more
It's already after 10:30 p.m. so I don't have time to blog in detail about my race and my newest goals, as I would like to.
However, I will say that I completed the 31st Annual Tufts Healthplan 10K for Women today in 1:02:16, 10:02 minute m... Read more
Twas the Night Before Race Day
I did another "zoomin' elliptical" workout today - love it - sweat was literally pouring off me, I was at an almost 1,000-calorie-per-hour pace, and more importantly, I was at about a 9.5 minute mile pace. And I still think I can go faster when... Read more
Copied from the Weight Watchers Friends Forum
Hi everyone...I picked up my materials for my 10K today. I got a cool shirt, I am going to feel SO proud whenever I wear it, a chip for timing purposes, a number (I'm #1720!), and a goodie bag with food in it! :) I am so nervous and excited, but... Read more
Zoomin' On the Elliptical
My weight's back up to 147.something and I don't fit into the size 4 pants I bought a week and a half ago. However, my immdediate concern is NOT my weight, although I definitely want to fit into my new pants again soon (and I HAVE to fit into m... Read more

Tonight at the Gym
Unfortunately I made poor choices this afternoon...WAY too much eating, and a nap. Normally I wouldn't have gone to the gym after a "fat" afternoon like that, but since the Tufts is in just 6 days, I knew I had to.
I did legs (2 different ... Read more
