So frustrated!!!
Wednesday, October 13, 2010      3 comments

Argh! I was doing so well for the past two and a half weeks. And then Thanksgiving dinner threw a wrench in the wheel. I didn't overdo it that much even, didn't have whopping amounts of food or booze. I just had one meal that was a bit bigger th... Read more
All these excuses
Friday, January 15, 2010      0 comments

I am so frustrated with myself. I keep starting, falling off the wagon, and coming up with excuses why. Our convalidation last weekend with subsequent dinner-out. DH's birthday on Wednesday. A package my dad is sending over with oodles of chocol... Read more
On Mother Mary

In dangers, in doubts, in difficulties, think of Mary, call upon Mary. Let not her name depart from your lips, never suffer it to leave your heart. And that you may obtain the assistance of her prayer, neglect not to walk in her footsteps. With ... Read more
Frustrated with DH
Thursday, February 12, 2009      1 comments

I am frustrated with DH. I don't think he is taking this weight loss thing seriously enough. I have lost 13 pounds, or 7.07% of my body weight. He lost 12, or 3.12%. He weighed in at 384 when we started, and I thought he really had the potential... Read more
Separation anxiety causes Joelle behavior
Saturday, February 07, 2009      0 comments

I realize this statement requires an explanation. Joelle, for all you non-Biggest-Loser-fans out there, was this season's Biggest Loser slacker. She wandered around the gym aimlessly, watching other people bust their humps. Her weight loss was a... Read more
Well, that was short lived.

The membership of the gym fell through. Since we joined it's been one disappointment after another, the childcare didn't turn out to be sufficient, the opening hours that were on the site are completely different (read: way more generous) than t... Read more
Whose bright idea was this again?
Saturday, January 31, 2009      1 comments

DH and I had our fitness assessment today, and it was an all out shock to the system. That's what I get for joining a fancy health club instead of a two bit gym that just gives you a membership card and points you in the general direction of the... Read more
We're joining a gym!

Yesterday DH and I went to a gym downtown and signed up. It's a ritzy one, and expensive as well, but we got an introductory rate. We will have to budget for it and I have no idea how long we will be able to remain members, but for now we have d... Read more
The first ten pounds are gone!
Wednesday, January 21, 2009      1 comments

I weighed in at 173.0 this morning! Down ten pounds (well, 10.8 to be exact ;) and darn proud of it! Here's to sticking with it, even when things get tough and I feel like all I want to do is curl up on the couch and eat until there isn't a crum... Read more

I am disappointed and at the point of giving up. I know, stupid, especially since I've only been at it for a week now. But the past two days I have gained 0.2 pound per day. While exercising every other day, drinking my 8 cups of water each day,... Read more
A warning about trolls on this site
Wednesday, January 07, 2009      3 comments

The Biggest Loser Fans team has a troll, who goes by the name of Winston H. and who started an inappropriate thread about the Green Team being lesbians. In the discussion that ensued, he professed to being a "chubby chaser" who thinks that fat l... Read more
About those affirmations...

... I posted about the last time I wrote in my blog? Things are slightly different now. Actually, they are a lot different, I am happy to say! - Yes, my husband has a job now! - We never did miss a meal, although some of them were pretty ... Read more

I have decided I need affirmations, positive thoughts instead of the negative that has been prominent in my thinking lately. So here they are: I AM a happily married woman. My husband HAS a job. We HAVE enough. I AM losing weight. ... Read more
Moving forward again
Thursday, March 08, 2007      3 comments

I don't know if it has to do with my changed attitude or the simple fact that I am sticking to the eating regime better than I was, but the scale is moving again. I weighed in at 154.8 this morning, which is a new all time low. I'm sure it will ... Read more
Time for a change
Monday, March 05, 2007      1 comments

I think I need to reinvent myself. I have been stuck in this pattern for what feels like months now, where I will do really well for a day or two and then lapse and eat whatever I feel like. As a result the scale is barely moving. Well, that's n... Read more
