Over the Moon Ecstatic
Wednesday, July 08, 2020      14 comments

I want to hold onto this feeling! Yesterday I had my annual lab work drawn and I got the results today. All of my lab values were NORMAL--my LDL was even a little low. My triglycerides were NORMAL for the first time in over 10 years. My chol... Read more
The problem that is not a problem
Wednesday, June 24, 2020      4 comments

It has now been 11 weeks since I hit my weight loss goal. In a previous blog, I noted that I expected it would take time to adjust to this new reality. It took me over four years to lose the weight and I worked hard to keep that mindset. I di... Read more
The New Reality
Monday, May 18, 2020      8 comments

I reached my goal weight 38 days ago. I am trying to approach this new phase logically, objectively, eagerly. I figured I would just make one change at a time as I transitioned into maintenance. I reset my ticker and nutrition goals. Since I... Read more

I have to pinch myself when I remember I am no longer in the lose weight phase. I am in maintenance. I have been in my target range for several weeks but only reached my arbitrary goal weight about 2 weeks ago. I joined the Transition to Main... Read more

My quest for health started in earnest when I was diagnosed with diabetes in November of 2015. That was my turning point, my wake-up call. I did it! I set a goal and I achieved it! Then I set another goal and I achieved it! There were se... Read more

ONE pound to go!
Wednesday, March 25, 2020      4 comments

I was pretty excited with the weigh in this morning. I only have one pound to go to get to my goal. My weight peaked at 222 pounds in August 2015. I lost 36 pounds the first year. Then I hit a plateau that lasted several months and ended up g... Read more
Maintenance Frame of Mind
Monday, March 09, 2020      4 comments

I am within reach of the arbitrary goal weight I set as my "final goal". I have struggled with self-doubt regarding maintenance and shared my thoughts on this in a previous blog. It has been about a month and I have done a lot of thinking on t... Read more
Having a mighty struggle
Wednesday, February 05, 2020      9 comments

This has been a tough week with a severe lack of motivation. I am within five pounds of my weight loss goal and I'm tired. I'm tired of measuring every bit of food that goes in my mouth. I'm tired of not being able to eat whatever I want, whe... Read more

As the new year approaches, like many others, I am contemplating the year that is 2019 and preparing for 2020. I may not know exactly what I want but I do know what I don't want. I don't want a stagnant life. The worst thing in the world for ... Read more
Plan Do Check Adjust
Wednesday, December 18, 2019      3 comments

It has been almost a week since I reset my ticker and adjusted my caloric intake to try and take off the last 10 pounds I need to lose. To recap--resetting the ticker lowered my calories and all my macros more severely than I anticipated. But-... Read more
Fighting with myself
Wednesday, December 11, 2019      6 comments

It's touch and go. I have no idea who is going to win this battle. It is too soon to tell and yet, all seems lost. After 4 years, I achieved the goal I set for myself and lost 62 pounds. I didn't think it was possible, but little by little w... Read more
