Weight 155.2 today. Probably the biggest difference between "diet" and "lifestyle change" has to do with how I handle a binge. On a diet, after a binge I am extremely discouraged because now I have to be extra strict to meet my predetermined g... Read more

Normally, the pattern starts small and snowballs. I am at a party, for example. I have a cooler full of my own, healthy, balanced, pre-portioned, pre-calorie-counted food. I see some chips and guacamole. "I wish I could eat that," I think. ... Read more

I am at 154.6 today. I realized that all these weekend meals at restaurants have really put my sodium at a much-too-high level, so I'm honestly relieved that my weight isn't even higher due to water retention! We didn't end up going biking... Read more

My weight is back up to 155.0 today. I just finished guestimating my calories from last night and ended up with about 2,700. Ugh. At least I had fun and was very active......and today we're biking the Minuteman Trail! Twelve miles!... Read more

Heehee. Yes, here I am blogging from school again! Jess could not believe I walked on the treadmill for a whole hour yesterday. I was on an incline of about 3-6, and a speed of 4.0-4.4 mph, so I did get my heart rate up. I also did stren... Read more

The Alcohol Diet?
Wednesday, May 21, 2008      6 comments

It happens almost every time... I lose weight after I drink. Last night I drank enough to be pretty "happy" throughout the whole game. Probably more than I should have, but I swear I don't do this that often. As I mentioned in my last blog en... Read more

My back's still bugging me. I think I need to see the doctor. I couldn't do my leg presses without my back really feeling uncomfortable. That's making me kind of upset, because I don't want anything getting in the way of me feeling fantastic ... Read more

So last night, for Mother's Day, my mom wanted to go to a Chinese restaurant. My family has always shared a bunch of dishes. Nothing was particularly healthy - even veggies were covered in salty, oily sauces, but everything was delicious and I... Read more
