I wish Dean was my friend and neighbor. Everything he writes speaks to me. You can tell he writes from experience, not from a textbook. I'm sure he's received this type of message often, but want him to know here's one more person who thinks he... Read more

Poor choices today
Tuesday, January 22, 2019      4 comments

I went over on my calories today. I didn't totally blow it thankfully, but disappointed anyway. I brought canned soup to work today for lunch. I haven't had canned soup in at least two years (since I started making my own). It was horrible! ... Read more
Week three

Thankfully it's getting easier to resist sugar when I'm stressed. I didn't say easy - easier. Last week was a real test at work with some high stress days, but I pulled through with a 2 lb loss. Slow and steady is what I'm going for.... Read more
Met my first weight goal

I met my first goal! Just 6 pounds left to go. Sugar cravings are much less severe - although still an issue when I get seriously stressed at work. Focusing on keeping stress level down. When cravings feel beyond my control, I will get up an... Read more

Finally made it two days in a row without sweets or emotional eating. It's been painful, but I know it will get easier.... Read more
I don't know what to do

A week off work and was down 3 lbs. A week back at work and I was back up those 3 plus 1 more. I MUST figure out a way to stop the work stress, or at least deal with it in a different way. I wish I was one of those people that couldn't eat wh... Read more
day 3

It's only been two days of cutting out sweets and I'm already a mental case! Man that sugar is evil! I want it so bad and yet I know if I gave in and ate something I'd surely say it wasn't worth it afterwards. I've got to keep my eyes on the pr... Read more
I'm very irritated with myself!

I don't know why I can't get my act together. I spend two weeks taking some weight off, and less than a week putting the weight back on. I continue to workout every morning, but my eating is all over the board. I'm great on the weekends. I k... Read more

I simply cannot get away from logging my food. It is the ONLY way I stay accountable. I have gained 9 lbs. I know to some people that wouldn't sound like a lot, but we all know how 2 lbs becomes 5 lbs becomes 10 lbs, etc. My goal: Lo... Read more

Would I hang out with an enemy day after day? NO! So why do I continue to eat junk that I regret eating immediately afterwards, and what is it going to take for me to STOP??? Those are the million dollar questions. ... Read more
Getting back to basics
Sunday, January 19, 2014      0 comments

I've learned that I can't exercise away a bad diet, and sugar is a slippery slope. Unlike previous years, I am not going to vow never to eat sweets again, but I am getting back to the basics of tracking my food and exercise. It's too easy to e... Read more

Quitting the fight
Friday, February 15, 2013      5 comments

I've had enough! I'm throwing in the towel on trying to be a certain weight, and trying to eat perfectly. It makes me obsess about food and eventually binge. So what if I weigh 120 instead of my desired 115? So what if I have a little belly ... Read more

I have created a challenging for myself. For every day I do not eat candy I will put $3.00 in a jar. If on any day I eat candy, I must remove $3.00 from the jar. On December 23 I get to buy myself something for Christmas with the money in the... Read more
