On the road today, overnight and at the will of hosts tomorrow for lunch (the kind you must allow to provide for you). So far so good. Planned for a bought dinner so ate light (hummus and veggies for lunch) and ended up within range tonight. ... Read more
Long Haul and Consistency

My slow "a-ha" for today: This is going to take awhile. As much as I want to see immediate results, I truly realize that it's not going to happen quickly. My body is morphing into its most undesirable shape yet and there is no quick fix. So ... Read more

It was strongly suggested that I live within boundaries. Being a rebellious kind of girl, I'm not liking that suggestion but KNOW that it is what I need to do. So this morning, in my journal, I wrote down the boundaries I will try to live with... Read more

So there was Sandy. My daughter decided to make Chocolate Chip Cookies. They were really good. So good I already had two right before I worked out this morning. My immediate thought was, "Well I won't be tracking my food today!" Then it ... Read more
A-ha! Moment

I've been off track. Slipping slowly from disciplines for the last month and then sort of letting go enough to stop the weight from coming off and revisit old habits. But the "A-ha!" came when I was whining to myself about the time it takes to... Read more
Peaceful Progress

Someone said it to me yesterday, "You seem to be really at peace with this weight loss journey." She was right. I'm not hyper and frantic. I'd call it being sober and determined. Being joyfully aware that I'm 25 pounds down but have 75 to go... Read more

I was just checking on the folks I had claimed as Spark Friends on my page. There weren't many to start with but three out of four seem to have vanished from SparkPeople. Their statuses haven't been changed for over 400 days. I see that my la... Read more
Telling the Truth

I did not want to get on the scale. i did not want to record what i saw there. I wanted to lie for the sake of my BLC team and for my own pride. But I told the truth because it will not do a bit of good to lie to myself. The truth is this wa... Read more

Yesterday I successfully defended my doctoral thesis! So my eating has been poor, my exercise has been non-existent, but that BIG WORK is done! I will graduate in May and although there are little revisions to make, something I've been carryi... Read more

I can be so good, until I'm not and then it is such a hard thing to turn around! This weekend I intended to be good. I resisted the Godiva chocolates I bought for my friends. The Italian restaurant we went to did not offer any salads as me... Read more

At last I've broken the barrier! I was able to meet my goals for six days straight! Even eating out twice! it's all in the planning and persistence. Feels so good! Now today will be a challenge because I face the unknown with an outing to ... Read more
I am learning . . .

I have to really be ruthless with myself. I allow myself one little break and the whole eating plan goes to heck. Maybe this will be a shorter fall. It happened with too many calories at Sat. breakfast, not stable through a funeral potluck on... Read more
3-Day streak!

Short, I know, but it does wonders for my mind to know that I have chosen to do these specific things and have stuck with them for three days even in the midst of huge amounts of stress. So I will celebrate these three little days as I enter in... Read more
Small Victory

I have determined to eat under to the low range of my calories for a long while. When I checked in after dinner I wanted to be but still hungry (habit of one more snack at night during holidays). I knew I didn't want any more calories in, so I... Read more
