It's not just calories in vs. calories out...
Friday, January 20, 2012      8 comments

I apologize for stealing the blog title. I've seen the exact same title on others' blogs recently, and I agree! What I really want to write about is something more like, "My calorie intake seems to have differing impacts on my weight gain/loss... Read more

Hi Susan, Our entire show is based around a philosophy of gradual and permanent lifestyle change rather than going on or off a diet plan, and as in our name "fat2fit" we are not just about weight loss, but also becoming a fit and strong ... Read more

My Fault vs. Not My Fault
Saturday, January 07, 2012      16 comments

A warning - what I'm saying here is probably controversial and I'd be surprised if everyone who reads it agrees with me, but this is what I believe and hey, it's MY blog. :) I found these links on another Sparker's page last night (EWESTCOT... Read more
Just Doing It
Tuesday, January 03, 2012      8 comments

Nike has a great slogan, doesn't it? I mentioned the other day that I'd been doing a lot of private writing about my weight loss, hoping to come up with a grand plan that was going to get me back to a good weight, whatever the heck that mig... Read more

Thursday, December 29, 2011      12 comments

I have been using SparkPeople for about five years now! I just took a look at my weight tracker from the beginning of 2007 to the current time, and found that I have gone through the weight loss/weight gain cycle six full times. (Even more if ... Read more
One week without treadmill - completed
Saturday, December 24, 2011      9 comments

Last I wrote, I'd been using the treadmill almost exclusively for my cardio, jogging for up to an hour at a time on it almost every day, and my knees and hips were in pain! I decided last Friday to take a week off, and I'm so glad I did. The hi... Read more

I'm in a much better mood than I was when I last wrote. I watched a YouTube video that was linked to someone's blog (wish I still had the link to share) that suggested that, for health, we all commit to limiting our sitting/lying down time ... Read more
Me, Complaining.
Saturday, December 10, 2011      5 comments

Progress reports are due Tuesday and I'm not even halfway done with them yet. And I don't bring work home, so I'm going to have a long day at work on Monday. My weight is up, and my face is getting round and ugly. My skin is breaking out to... Read more
New Routine
Tuesday, December 06, 2011      5 comments

I decided about a week ago or so that I'm no longer going to evening classes during the week. I get out of work at 3 P.M. and my gym is on my way home. I used to hang around at work killing time before classes because if I went home first that... Read more
Trying out intuitive eating
Sunday, December 04, 2011      5 comments

It might seem like an odd time to try intuitive eating for me, considering I'm at the top of my weight range these days, but it's a busy time of year, and I know what my eating choice parameters should be in order to be successful, so why not ju... Read more
Waning Motivation/Interest
Thursday, December 01, 2011      4 comments

So I've been back off track since Thanksgiving, and I've gained back the six or so pounds I'd lost. I just get this relaxed and happy feeling when I give myself permission to eat whatever I want without worrying about calories. I never let up ... Read more

Went to the gym this morning for a special one-time only class called the Turkey Trot, but it turns out it was the same as a class usually called Circuit Systems. It's normally Tuesday nights so I may check it out again. It was different than m... Read more
