Great end to 2017
Sunday, December 31, 2017      1 comments

Today I did well. A hearty, low-carb breakfast kept me full well into the afternoon, leaving me room for some treats. I shopped for some healthy snack and meal options, so I'm looking forward to a healthy 2017. Last night I weighed in, and I hav... Read more
Busier day, easier day

Today was easier than yesterday. I was busy, so my mind was not on my food intake so much. I braved a buffet line and did OK. Not spectacular, but OK. I started with a salad and roasted vegetables, had a few taco fillings without the shell. Inst... Read more
Tougher day today

Today was a little harder. I know my portion sizes were previously out of control, because after every meal I have not felt satisfied--yet I have been at the upper end of or over my carb and calorie allotment for each meal, so it is sufficient. ... Read more

I am currently trying to figure out how to work consistency with exercise into my routine. It's not going to be a problem between now and 1/8, but after that I will be back to school. I am working full time and taking two classes per quarter to ... Read more
On again, off again...and back on.

I'm back after a LONG hiatus. I'm hoping to find some motivation. After some bouts with exercise-induced asthma and some physical difficulties I know it's time to come back and put forth the effort to lose weight. My health depends on it. I also... Read more
Wow! It Happened!

I've heard of people who have stated that even if you don't feel like exercising, you should go do it anyway because it feels so great when you're done. I have never experienced that. I may have felt relieved when I finished, knowing I did enou... Read more
How I know
Friday, August 23, 2013      0 comments

There are several reasons I know things are going well. For starters, I have not used slip-ups as an excuse to stop doing what I know is good for me. Last weekend I took a mini-vacation with two girlfriends. We went to a small town where there w... Read more

I think I'm finally getting to the point where I can recognize what enough looks and feels like. I know it will always be easy to override my body's natural mechanism that tells me when I am full. It's been a habit for far too long to just think... Read more

This is the first time I have stayed with a health goal for more than thirty days. The first time I have gone for more than two weeks drinking water as my main beverage. The first time I have consistently incorporated exercise into a weight loss... Read more

This past week was all about consistency for me. I was focused on drinking enough water, avoiding soda, and getting at least ten minutes of exercise in per day. I did really well! After a few false starts I finished strong with drinking wa... Read more
Eating in Anticipation
Sunday, July 07, 2013      0 comments

Over the past week or two I have noticed something. When I eat and I'm not hungry it can be for a variety of reasons. Like many people, I eat when I'm bored, lonely, frustrated, or tired. This is not the revelation. What is news, though, is the ... Read more

Wow! Four months after my last blog entry, I see little progress, mainly due to little effort. I have decreased a couple of my measurements by an inch or two, probably because I have more overall activity in my day to day life. The numbers on t... Read more
Let's Get the Party Started!

I had another work party today. This one was not as successful as the last. It was a work meeting, but as a treat for all of our hard work on the committee, we met at a restaurant. There were appetizers and beverages. We did not place our order,... Read more

He may be a little crazy, but he never quits. He just keeps going. It's an admirable quality, the ability to outlast everyone and everything else. I don't necessarily think I have to outlast everyone, but it would be nice to go further than the ... Read more

It snowed yesterday. It gave me an automatic workout, since my car was buried underneath all ten inches and I needed to shovel it out to go to work. I'm thankful for days like this when I don't have to decide whether to exercise. I just do it. I... Read more
