I am so excited to get my massage once I reach my goal weight. It will be a reward well-deserved. Until then, I have been rewarding myself with little things each day. -enjoying a cup of hot chocolate -soaking in the bathtub -pa... Read more
Proud Moment

Yesterday I experienced a very proud moment. It was such a small thing, but it made me so happy! I was in my weekly strength training class, which is pretty rigorous. There are people of all ages and abilities in the class, but it is t... Read more
The Scale
Tuesday, August 12, 2008      3 comments

A few weeks ago, I was in the habit of weighing myself every morning. I realized that was going a bit overboard, especially since I lose so little each week. It felt like I was on an emotional rollercoaster. One day I'd be down a pound - J... Read more
Why do people "accuse" others of weight loss?
Monday, August 11, 2008      1 comments

Last week I posted about someone finally noticing that I had lost weight. Although it was slightly awkward, it was nice to know that my hard work produced noticeable results. Today, a coworker stopped me in the hall and barked, "Have you b... Read more

Calorie Deficits
Sunday, August 10, 2008      0 comments

It has taken me a while to truly grasp the concept of creating a calorie deficit. I understood that in order to lose weight you must expend more calories than you consume, but I don't think I saw the big picture. I focused on each individual d... Read more
The "What Ifs"
Thursday, August 07, 2008      0 comments

What if I reach my goal weight and then gain it all back over Thanksgiving and Christmas? What if I reach my goal weight and can't maintain it without constant vigilance? I know I'm getting ahead of myself since I'm not even there ... Read more
I want to get there NOW.

I have spent the last 8 months losing weight at a slow pace. Let's see...12 pounds in 8 months averages out to less than half a pound a week. Not bad actually. Now that I'm getting really close to my goal weight, I have lost my patience. ... Read more
Someone Noticed!!
Tuesday, August 05, 2008      3 comments

I was just thinking yesterday how no one has noticed my weight loss so far. I have lost weight very gradually, so I didn't expect my close friends or coworkers to notice. But today one of my coworkers looked at me and said, "You look rea... Read more
I Need a Weight Loss Buddy
Tuesday, August 05, 2008      0 comments

I do not talk about my weight loss efforts with anyone but my husband. I know I shouldn't be ashamed of it, but I am just really uncomfortable talking about it with anyone. I guess I don't want people to assume that I am "that girl" who is ... Read more

It's almost time to change from a 'Lost 10 Pounds' Icon to a 'Lost 15 Pounds' one. I can hardly believe it. 15 pounds sounds like a lot!... Read more
Now I Know...I CAN
Monday, August 04, 2008      0 comments

I never had to lose weight before. I gained some weight my freshman year of college, but it came off naturally when I moved away from the dorms (and the cafeterias.) Although it is disappointing that I now have to watch what I eat, I als... Read more
Who knew a doctor's visit could be so exciting?!
Monday, August 04, 2008      0 comments

I went to the doctor today for my annual checkup. When they weighed me, I was pleased that I was at 130.4 - with clothes on! I hadn't weighed myself in a while, so that was a nice surprise. I am interested to see what my own scale says (wi... Read more

I just bought a new bikini online. I'm going to the beach in a month, and I thought I would get something new to show off my newly toned body. :) I still have 5 pounds to go, and this bikini should be good motivation to get to my goal. Ob... Read more
The Problem with Alcohol
Friday, August 01, 2008      2 comments

I need to stay away from alcohol. Whenever I drink, it lowers my inhibitiions. Lowered inhibition results in eating too much. Eating and drinking too much makes me sleepy, but when I do go to bed I don't sleep well. I toss and turn all... Read more
