Okay, this is going to sound rather cliche. But as long as I keep kicking myself and berating myself for not doing a good job, I will probably not do any better. I will just feel worse about it. Maybe I need to be a little nicer to myself. The... Read more

I am in a funk and I seem to be unable to snap out of it. I keep falling off the wagon and hopping back on again, I seem ravenous all the time for no apparent reason, and my weight keeps going up and down between 157 and 159. I have no idea what... Read more

I finally broke my plateau!! This morning the scale showed 156.0 lbs, more than a pound below my plateau weight. I am so happy! I stepped up my exercise prgram, adding Pilates to the aerobic exercise, and I feel really good about that. I actuall... Read more

On Sunday the scale still wasn't budging (it was at 157.4) so I decided to try another strategy and took the day off to sort of "shock" my body back into the weight loss process. Yeah, that worked out really well. I had a lovely day (mmm Subway ... Read more

I seem to have reached a plateau for the first time since I started my lifestyle change. I was down to 157.0, stayed there for two days, then went up to 157.6 (while maintaining my calorie intake no less) and have been there for the past two day... Read more

I had a light bulb moment just now. I was standing outside on the balcony with my drink (for which I had ample calories left over ;) and I was thinking about my diet, the way I look now, and what my life is going to be like from now on. I though... Read more

Breaking the world's control over your emotions A lot in our past can be chalked up to inexperience, youth, and happenstance. But now, as an adult, you must claim your choices and their consequences as your own. Negative attitudes affect yo... Read more

I've had a rather wishy washy couple of weeks. Taking time off of my diet and going up and down weight wise. The New Year's Eve weekend didn't do me any good, and the fact that we started using the Ferber method with our little girl last weekend... Read more

In two days I will be dieting for two months. It's a record of sorts, it's been at least 15 years since I managed to stick with it for that long. And then I didn't lose nearly as much as I have now. I am down 21 pounds, I went from 186 to 165. I... Read more

DH is being less than supportive with my weight loss efforts. It bothers me, it annoys me, and at the same time I understand it. When my sister was dieting a few years ago, and she was already way thinner than me, I reacted the same way. I went ... Read more

I behaved very well during the day yesterday, and then I totally caved when dinner time came around. We had the pizza leftovers and I ate every last bit of mine. Bad bad Nat! So I went way over my calorie intake goal, and as a result the scale t... Read more
