Tuesday, December 22, 2009      3 comments

Hi everyone, Had a GREAT visit with my brother. He's a lot of fun and it's been several years since I'v e seen him. Vandal's done a great job on his vacation since his daughter and son-in-law are healthy eaters -- HOW LUCKY FOR YOU,... Read more
Feeling better
Thursday, December 17, 2009      3 comments

I was feeling pretty defeated yesterday, but I feel better now. I DO need to keep reading my cards and doing what I can do. I am not helpless. I don't have to give in COMPLETELY to the dark side. AND, even more importantly, this out... Read more

Hi everyone, I have NOT been present on the site for the last week and probably won't for the NEXT week. The end of classes, finals, grading, (then rechecking grades for students who feel their grade wasn't fair), conducting a staff tr... Read more
OLD HABITS die hard
Monday, December 14, 2009      5 comments

Hi everyone, Well, the past few weeks I've been pretty bad. I've completely fallen back into the old habits of stress-eating/drinking and the scale certainly shows it. I've not exercised. I've not read my cards or hardly done anything I'... Read more
The Dreaded Christmas PotLuck

We had it yesterday, and I made up my mind to watch how several of my thin co-workers eat: 1. THEY DIDN'T FILL THEIR PLATES WITH EVERYTHING. The thin people did NOT fill up their plates with a helping of everything like it was their Last ... Read more
Busy week!

Today is the last day of classes; tomorrow I have three 2-hour finals and Thursday I have three 2-hour finals. I do that on purpose, but it makes for two hard days (but then two easy ones!) I haven'd done well with the wine or exercise sin... Read more

Hey, not really. My boss hosted a "chili lunch" for her staff and I did pretty well. No desserts and just 3 saltines. The chili looked pretty healthy although more meat and less beans than I like. I did not exercise today; finals... Read more

Sunday, December 06, 2009      3 comments

I hate having to always be confessing my weaknesses. Friday I had an fine day, but the "THIS IS THE WEEKEND!" mentality kicked in and Beck's got kicked to the curb! It continued Saturday. I had the house to myself and after racing ar... Read more
Resetting Your Set Point? What do you think?
Thursday, December 03, 2009      8 comments

I listened to a weight-loss podcast that I downloaded from I-Tunes yesterday called "Cut the Fat." I don't know what the credentials of the podcasters were, but they gave me a new perspective that I want to share. They recommended losing 1... Read more
Working it!

I took the day off from work yesterday because I had two doctor appointments. It had been 2 1/2 years since I've had a physical. My doctor is a triathlete, and while she is a very kind and empathic person, I was just too embarrassed to g... Read more

This is a weird name for a blog, but it is the new acronym for the habits I must practice on a daily basis. WATERR was good but it didn't include everything I personally need to track to meet my goal. So I'll go through the letters one by one ... Read more
Victories!
Monday, November 30, 2009      5 comments

I had another good day yesterday, and the proof is on the scale. I weighed in today at 159.5, which is exactly where I was on Wednesday before the Thanksgiving weekend began. So that's some form of victory, and I'm giving myself credit! ... Read more

You can NEVER rest on your laurels...
Saturday, November 28, 2009      3 comments

This weight-loss journey is pretty humbling. It seems like it's always one step forward, two back, or two steps forward, one back. Vandal, I TOO have to confess that we bought wine for Thanksgiving and I drank too much of it and certainly ... Read more
