Tearing it up in the gym
Saturday, April 19, 2008      4 comments

Busted my butt in the gym today & managed to get two workouts in. Wasn't planning on it but I'm glad I got through it all. I'd think I'd be exhausted by now, but I'm not. I'm still energized & will have to do some jumping jacks in the house b... Read more
210 lbs + a memory = body love!
Friday, April 18, 2008      7 comments

One of my co-workers, bless her heart, doesn't believe that I was once over 200 lbs. At just under 5 feet tall, I'm in awe that my body adapted to that extra weight. DH & I were discussing our weight loss journeys (he's maintained a 35-lb loss... Read more

Ramblings about non-food rewards
Tuesday, April 15, 2008      5 comments

On Sunday I was talking w/ DH about how non-food rewards don't feel nearly as satisfying as eating a bunch of junk. See, whenever I go on any kind of staying-within-my-kcal-range streak, I feel like I deserve to eat junk, & most of the time I d... Read more
Believing in myself
Monday, April 14, 2008      5 comments

This is from a post I wrote on one of my SparkTeams. I felt it was valuable to keep in my blog. * * * For a long time I thought that once I lost weight, the inner changes would be automatic. I'd have more confidence, be more asse... Read more
Instant gratification, bigger picture
Friday, April 11, 2008      3 comments

The call of instant gratification is quiet, but still there. Today's a food day at work & I just found out that one of my favorite items was put out on the table. I'm determined to stick to my plan & eat only what I brought w/ me. At times li... Read more
My body lets me...
Wednesday, April 09, 2008      1 comments

My homework assignment from my RD is to make a list of everything my body lets me do. Here's what comes off the top of my head: My body lets me... - eat, sleep, wake up - shower - put on shoes, put on clothes - laugh, cry - expre... Read more
Changing my eating plan
Monday, April 07, 2008      3 comments

I swear it feels like every Monday I come up w/ some new idea to tweak my diet...and I never do. If I put it in writing, maybe I'll have a better chance of making change. I've been eating 5-6x / day for almost 2 years now & it doesn't seem... Read more

I'm frustrated today. I've gained 2 lbs since last Monday & I'm trying really hard not to feel disappointed in myself. My RD says that weight maintenance actually includes some flexibility - to maintain means +/- 5 lbs, which is what I'm doing... Read more
I need some accountability!
Friday, April 04, 2008      1 comments

I just ate a nice big chewy yummy tasty delicious cookie, & now I'm uncomfortably full. I made the conscious decision to eat it, understanding the consequences. Still, there was an aspect of sneak eating behind it, & I know that just fuels mor... Read more
Mom said the darndest thing
Thursday, April 03, 2008      1 comments

Last night I heard the last thing I ever thought my mom would say: "You don't need to lose anymore weight. I think you're thin enough already." WTF?! Ever since she put me on my first diet at eight, she's repeatedly harped on me to lo... Read more
Attitude change!
Tuesday, April 01, 2008      1 comments

I've got a pretty negative attitude when it comes to what I've achieved since July 2006. I'm definitely my worst critic & constantly feel like what I've done is absolutely, 100% not. good. enough. ever. I'm sick of that nasty attitude; it's... Read more
Post-binge reflections
Monday, March 31, 2008      0 comments

I feel humbled today. Yesterday, for the umpteenth time, I was in a highly triggering environment & binged. I feel sad that food yet again got the best of me. I am near the top of the mountain, looking up towards what I have left to do & feel... Read more
Identifying overeating triggers
Friday, March 28, 2008      0 comments

Last night I binged on granola. Before I'd even taken a bite, I already knew that if I crossed that line, I wouldn't be able to stop. And y'know what? I ate & ate until I was so painfully full I couldn't sleep. For now, the best thing for me... Read more
