Yes, I plunked down my money and joined the Shrink Yourself online analysis program. I couldn't get it out of my head all night. It had shown me some insights that were epiphanies (yes, someone else could feel the way I feel--who'd have thunk it... Read more

Saturday, April 03, 2010      1 comments

I'm realizing that the one thread running through all of my weight loss achievements in the past (yes, I'm a Yo Yo dieter) is that I succeeded each time no matter which method I used--WW, Atkins, modified South Beach, hypnosis, etc. And after I ... Read more
Weight Watchers Week #3
Saturday, April 03, 2010      4 comments

Well, I lost 2.6lbs "officially" but remember last week when they didn't charge me? They also didn't log in a weight gain so what I really lost this week, according to WW scales anyway, is 3lbs. Woo hoo! Their scales are around 2lbs higher than... Read more

that I made it to the gym every day this week when my schedule was off-kilter and because the kids were off of school, I didn't need to get up that early (but I did it anyway!). Sorry to always sound like I'm patting myself on the back but I nee... Read more
What Support Told Me about Trophies and Consistency
Thursday, April 01, 2010      5 comments

I wrote to Support (who got back to me super quickly, thank you!) asking about my trophy for 1,000 fitness minutes and also how you qualify for a consistency award. I think that others have questions about this too so I'm posting their answer he... Read more
I have a new goal...
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      5 comments

Non weight-related, even: 10,000 fitness minutes. I'm at 7009 right now. It should take just around 50 workout sessions at 60 minutes per to reach that goal...around 8 weeks at 6 days exercing per week. So I'm figuring that by the beginning of J... Read more
Exercising in the morning
Wednesday, March 31, 2010      3 comments

Proud of myself that I made it up and out to the "alternative" gym to do my exercise. For some reason, it was harder today but I pushed myself and did the entire hour. What I don't do on the elliptical, I make up for on the bike. Just force myse... Read more

1 cup 2% milk (okay, I know it should be skim but I LIKE 2% milk) 1 ripe or overripe banana Handful of frozen berries 2 Splenda Puree in a blender for about 15-30 seconds. The banana gives it the consistency of a real shake. Worth abo... Read more

Well, I went to Planet Fitness today, full of trepidations. I was afraid I wouldn't find parking but I found a great spot, right away. I guess 7:30am on Passover isn't as crowded as a Saturday morning. I found an elliptical right in f... Read more
I think Lack of Exercise Causes Depression
Monday, March 29, 2010      10 comments

I'm prone to depression. I'm on medication for it and it usually helps. I also use light therapy and fish oil pills, along with 3,000+ mg of Vitamin D daily to keep it under wraps. But this weekend, it reared its ugly head and I spent most of Sa... Read more
Revealing!
Monday, March 29, 2010      2 comments

One of my new goals is to write in a journal daily (lucky you all! LOL) and another is to track my food daily, even when I overeat. Today was revealing. I had to go to the tax preparer today and hear how much I owed to the IRS and I a... Read more
Second Week at Weight Watchers
Saturday, March 27, 2010      3 comments

I hate to admit it but last week was a wash--I gained 1/2 lb. I deserved it, I really never made an attempt to follow the program. I don't know what my problem is, but I forced myself to go and weigh in today anyway. So guess what happened... Read more
Forgive me if I'm repeating myself...
Monday, March 22, 2010      2 comments

I think I blogged this once before so if I did, please forgive me. I'm thinking back to the first time I was on Weight Watchers. It was back in 1977, when I was a sophomore in college at Tufts. The college's dorms were overfilled and so th... Read more
Consistency Trophy?
Monday, March 22, 2010      4 comments

I see a lot of consistency trophies on people's sparkpages. I was just wondering--what does it take to earn one (and please don't say "being consistent"!) Does it automatically appear after you've come online for a certain number of days or wha... Read more
So I *did* rejoin Weight Watchers...

and it seems like a lively group at the time slot I chose so maybe it will work out okay. The meeting topic was about portion control and I have to admit, when I start thinking of having to measure everything by estimating by the size of my... Read more
