We might need to blast!

Okay, I'm sick and tired of working my tail off and seeing NO resulting downward plunge on the darn scale! Granted, I've not been as diligent in my eating as I should have been, but I've written EVERYTHING down, shouldn't that count for somethin... Read more
Woo Hoo ... two days in a row!
Wednesday, June 16, 2010      2 comments

Granted, that's not much a run, but when you start with zero, two days is pretty good. Actually, if I count last Friday, I have three days in a row of doing, then tracking my strength exercises. Again, not terribly impressive, but at least it's... Read more

Yes, I realize this is kind of a no-brainer, but I figure at this hour of the morning I'm allowed. Sleep issues have reared their ugly head again and I find myself wide awake and all alone. Perhaps tomorrow night will be more traditional ... Read more

Okay, thanks to SkinnyLinny7, Startingallover, Paishar2 and Coffeejim - I do very much appreciate that you responded to my lament. Nice to know I'm not always alone out here. Not too bad a day today. Although I didn't stay on track, at least it ... Read more anyone out there!

Gotta admit, feels like I'm all alone here in cyberspace. I'm trying to get back on track after 2 years off track. The last time I was on track I was able to chat live on another website, unfortunately the chat room is no longer there and I'm fi... Read more
What the heck?

Okay, this morning I felt thinner, my clothes feel looser, but the scale has deceived me! I'm holding off my judgement until later in the week...perhaps I just need to take a good book into the little girls room and have some quality time. ... Read more
Another day, another cookie...or two
Thursday, February 18, 2010      1 comments

Oh, to be looking back on a day with just two's confession time and it wasn't a pretty day. Cookies, candy bars - but I did manage to avoid McD's and the fillet-o-fish that taunted me this afternoon. It's official - I have NO will p... Read more
Been a tough week
Monday, February 15, 2010      2 comments

Although I'm happy to have figured out my pedometer, it's been a tough week nonetheless. Started a walking program at work - hence the pedometer - but minor frustrations have clearly derailed my positive intentions. Hopefully the new week will b... Read more
A real conumdrum

Yesterday was the first day of a walking program at my job. I was very proud of myself, signing up last Friday and picking up my pedometer. Unfortunately the new pedometer was a bust, well, actually it was the second pedometer - the first one wo... Read more
Little plateau...orlittle victory?
Monday, February 01, 2010      2 comments

Okay, the scales been stuck for about a week and I was a little discouraged until I realized that the sticking scale is 2 pounds less than the last time it got stuck. So, I'm determined to look at this as a good thing rather than a bad thing. Sa... Read more
I Rock! A Little Bit...

So, I guess slow is totally acceptable as long as you're going the right direction. Well, in my book that works just fine. I've been struggling all month trying my best to get on track and stay there. Today I weighed in and finally broke one tee... Read more
Poor excuses
Thursday, January 21, 2010      0 comments

Yet again, despite the good intentions it was a tough day. Difficulties at work are my excuse. Now, not sure how this works as an excuse, but since it's all I have I'm clinging to it. Eating alone for dinner is yet another excuse, but it's about... Read more
On and on and on...

Another gone day by the wayside. Again, did pretty good on the between meal snacking and the choices were good until dinner. Had to go to a dinner meeting and I was starving! Ate more than I should have and I'm feeling it now. Although I want to... Read more
Hoping baby steps lead down the right path

Today was a good day. No unplanned eating! I know, I know, not a big deal for many people. But I'm WEAK and the last few days I've succumbed to a voracious appetite day after day. So, although I might not have been all the way on track (still ne... Read more
Identifying the Monster
Saturday, January 16, 2010      3 comments

A wise woman just taught me that to conquer the "monster" we need to first identify it. So here I am, sitting at the computer, trying to figure out the monster of the day. I'm pretty sure that my closet is filled with a good variety of monsters,... Read more
