The end of overeating by David Kessler, MD
Thursday, September 06, 2012      20 comments

I am just finishing this book. It's got a ton of information but is a very easy read. He does a great job of taking complicated information and expressing it in simple terms in short chapters. One of his main points is that since 1980, ... Read more
Does Whining Burn Calories?
Tuesday, September 04, 2012      14 comments

Don't know the answer to that, but after loosening up on my calories, this morning I have broken through my plateau! Of course only by 1/2 pound, but .... still, I'm considering it a success. TC says the 10 mile walk/jog yesterday might ha... Read more
Pushing On -- It Ain't Over 'til It's OVER!
Monday, September 03, 2012      15 comments

I have spent a few days "taking it easy" -- not working out as hard and not tracking. But now I am back to tracking and hard exercises and feel renewed. I felt blessed to read two excellent blogs this morning. GETFIT2LIVE who asks the bur... Read more

Wednesday, August 29, 2012      19 comments

I have not seen the scale budge in a month! Well, that's a lie; it's gone up & down & all around but NEVER below 151.5. For. A. MONTH! I'm not sure what the H3LL is going on. Is it a mental block? Is it diet? I absolutely cannot wo... Read more
Wonderful Day in Dallas
Monday, August 27, 2012      10 comments

Had a great time including my planned BBQ brisket sandwich (sans bread) and onion rings. Then, the next morning off to the arboretum to spend some quality time with the Dale Chihuly exhibit. What a joy! I walked over 10,000 steps in the arbor... Read more

DOING MY BEST
Thursday, August 23, 2012      15 comments

I am SO CLOSE to 149 I can taste it! I've mostly been working my buns off but there have been a few lapses here and there that are keeping me from that actual number. I am feeling pretty good about where I'm at. My measurements are coming dow... Read more
Nothing much here, just blogging for the points
Tuesday, August 21, 2012      15 comments

I am 39 points away from the next trophy so even though I don't have much to say I'm going to write a blog, dadgumit! I did 70 minutes on the treadmill (5 miles), have salsa chicken in the crockpot, and need to do some house cleaning. I'm ... Read more

Really Sparkpeople? REALLY?
Tuesday, August 14, 2012      31 comments

Can't help it. I resent these stories that scream from magazine covers at checkout stands, resent these types of TV commercials; resent these types of ads in newspapers and magazines. I want to know IN WHAT UNIVERSE I could do 5 minutes of ex... Read more
No Panicking!
Monday, August 13, 2012      19 comments

Do you weigh yourself every day? I do. I've heard lots of reasons both pro and con, but for me, the pros win. For me, it's like tracking my food: if I don't, there's just too much room for fudging. You know that self defeating, self... Read more
Enforced Cross Training!
Saturday, August 11, 2012      9 comments

First off, my cleaning eating day did NOT result in a weight loss this morning, but I am still holding at 152. Not that there's anything wrong with that! As you know I was quite upset when the fitness center announced they were going to cl... Read more
