15 pounds down
Tuesday, August 15, 2017 6 comments
I remain stunned that the biggest change I've made is to track my food and become more aware of my calories. I know that other elements have a metabolic impact, and I am also doing low-carb, so I think that makes a difference, but the biggest ch... Read more
First Goal Reached: One Under "One Under"
Monday, July 10, 2017 4 comments
In the past I haven't set incremental goals for weight loss -- which I think was a big mistake. With so much weight to lose, focusing on a date almost a year in the future left a lot of room for rationalizing with "I'll make up for this later" a... Read more
First Comment on Weight Loss!
Friday, July 07, 2017 6 comments
I've been back on SparkPeople for just over two weeks, and I've lost 7 pounds. Today I'm wearing a top which was too tight a few weeks ago, and that's a wonderful feeling. Just as wonderful was having a colleague I don't see often co... Read more

In quest of new insights -- and yes, more SparkPoints for today -- I followed the "Read a Health News" link from my SparkPoints page and found an article about a research project done by some of the people I work with! "Gene Tests May Not D... Read more

I am feeling *so much better* than I was earlier. . . . Things were so bad this morning that they were almost scary, but I've persevered. I ate twice my recommended number of calories today, and a majority of that in refined carbs, and barely ... Read more

Yesterday evening and today have been hard. My phone broke. My computer's CD drive appears to be broken -- just when I finally got a CD I've been waiting *years* to find. I had nightmares about being attacked and rendered suicidal, and woke up s... Read more
I May Need to Break Up With This Scale

My simple digital scale is several years old. . . and not entirely reliable. It's bad enough that it often shifts up or down by .5lb or more when I'm stepping off, but it's becoming even worse. This morning when I stepped on, it told ... Read more

Wednesday, May 02, 2012 4 comments
I was *very* pleased with the yoga class last night: both how it was run and how well I did. It was a small class, with only five or six of us, although evidently several usual classmembers did not attend that night. What surprised me was ... Read more
Days Like Yesterday Are Why I Weigh Myself Every Morning

How often someone weighs themself during weight loss is a very personal thing. For me, weighing daily is a must. It's far too easy for me to go into denial about the consequences of my choices -- especially if I've been doing well. After a ... Read more
