WooHoo!!!! Finally Broke the Mini Plateau
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      6 comments

It seemed like I had a little mini-plateau there for a little over a week. The scale refused to budge, although I had something to do with it, I just couldn't find my stride and stay on track. Even though I didn't really go over calorie ranges (... Read more

Temporary Blips and the Difference Between Diet and Lifestyle
Thursday, January 12, 2012      9 comments

I FINALLY broke my little self-imposed mini plateau. I've had a rough first part of the week, and couldn't seem to get on track. Fighting temptation daily, staying just barely in range (sometimes even over). I went out to eat on Sunday, and that... Read more
Celery (funny)
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      7 comments

After my husband asked me to help him shed some unwanted pounds, I stopped serving fattening TV snacks and substituted crisp celery. While he was unenthusiastically munching on a stalk one night, a commercial caught his attention. As he wat... Read more
Digital heaven!
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      8 comments

I bought a digital kitchen scale yesterday at Amazon and it came today. I'm in LOVE. I haven't had a kitchen scale, and have had to guess on some of the non-cup measurements. In the past I've had those crappy little kitchen scales that slide up ... Read more
Oops Wrong Email
Monday, January 09, 2012      6 comments

It seems there was this couple from Minneapolis, Minnesota, who decided to go to Florida for a few days to thaw out during one particularly cold winter. Since both spouses worked, they had difficulty coordinating their schedules. The decision wa... Read more

Picture This--Comparison Visions of What Fat Looks Like
Monday, January 02, 2012      24 comments

I was doing a little "light" research, lol and wanted to know what the fat I've lost so far looks like, -- well sort of anyway. It would be nice in a way if it all came off in one place at a time so it would show more significantly instead of al... Read more

What Will You Do Today?
Monday, January 02, 2012      7 comments

I was watching a segment on Good Morning America and saw a float from the New Years parade that had "What Will You Do Today?" emblazoned across the front. I thought you kn... Read more
Wore The Suit
Sunday, January 01, 2012      13 comments

I wore the suit today! The old swimsuit that I finally got into last week. It felt great. It is still a little tight in the shoulders, but it fits and I can move my arms over my head so I can swim, so that's all that counts. I really like the wa... Read more
.2 Away, Talk About Frustrating
Saturday, December 31, 2011      5 comments

LOL I'm not really all that frustrated, but I had REALLY wanted to end the year/month with that 25 pound goal loss. Instead I ended it with 24.8 pounds lost. That's great for a month, and even good for a year, but since I just restarted this mon... Read more
Lies We Tell Ourselves
Friday, December 30, 2011      18 comments

Oh we're good at it. We can tell ourselves things that no one in their right mind would believe, and we BELIEVE IT. We believe it so much that we ignore the truth even though it's staring us in the mirror. Or better yet, we just avoid mirrors, c... Read more
Who Are You Really?
Thursday, December 29, 2011      8 comments

I had to steal this picture from FLA-1956's Blog: I talk a lot about body dysmorphic syndrome. I have experienced it on both ends of the scale. When I'm at my heavies... Read more
Purposeful Plateaus
Wednesday, December 28, 2011      10 comments

Ugh, who likes plateaus? Who would be stupid enough to hit one on purpose? No, I'm not near a plateau yet, but I started thinking this morning--they happen, better be prepared for them. Then I started thinking about the reasons they happen,... Read more
