Making it happen!

Saturday's trip to the scale brought mega happiness. In 25 days, I lost 17.1 pounds. That is more than I've ever lost in one month and I still I have a week to go until officially 1 month since I started weighing myself. I would like to say t... Read more
Ups and Downs
Wednesday, October 25, 2017      5 comments

I have lost 13.9 pounds since I started this. I'm super pumped about that. I'm no longer at my heaviest weight ever, which is a great feeling. I can feel myself getting stronger. At the same time, I'm not resisting temptation as well as ... Read more
The Tower of Pork Perfection
Wednesday, October 11, 2017      3 comments

Tomorrow I am going to lunch out of town with a colleague. I have been saying I want to go to a place we had dinner at back in July because I had, honest to God, the best freakin' sandwich of my life there. It was a pork lover's dream. 1/3 pound... Read more
One week in...

One week in, 6 pounds gone. I really didn't expect such a big loss considering I wasn't as vigilant as I should have been (I'm looking at you, cinnamon juju bears)...but I will take it and I will build on it. Yesterday, I was on the low end of... Read more
Back at the Beginning...

It's my semi-annual reckoning, that time when I convince myself to try really hard to lose weight and exercise...and usually succeed for a few weeks, or maybe even a couple of months. It's that time when I remember how good it felt back in 2009... Read more
Long Time, No See...

I did it this time. I went and fell off the weight-loss wagon, as so many of us who struggle with weight issues do. After losing almost 100 pounds, I gained it all back. As an added bonus, I gained another 62 pounds to boot. When I finally c... Read more
Starting over...again
Sunday, March 13, 2011      5 comments

Well, here we are again. After a wonderful January in which I shed 15 pounds, I find myself having put it all back on. Because...well, I don't know why, to be honest. Because every ounce of willpower seems to have been replaced by an insatiab... Read more
Now That's More Like It
Sunday, January 09, 2011      5 comments

I am down 9 lbs since I last wrote. I am guessing that it was not all "real" poundage, though, because 9 lbs in a week is pretty drastic if it was real weight loss. I don't really understand the physiology of the whole "water weight" thing but ... Read more
The Reckoning
Saturday, January 01, 2011      3 comments

So I have been out of control with my eating since mid-November. Worse in the past few weeks, but bad that whole time. The worst part is that I haven't been exercising either. I've only been to the gym a handful of times the past month. ... Read more
Progress?
Sunday, October 31, 2010      3 comments

I checked my weight progress report and it's sort of depressing. I've only lost 25 pounds in the last year. The lion's share of the weight I have lost was gone in the first 6 months. Granted, I sort of blew it all summer but even before then ... Read more
Not perfect but better
Sunday, October 17, 2010      1 comments

I ate (and drank!) too much last night. But that's okay, because I have known for a while that I would eat (and drink!) too much last night. I had a bigger than usual breakfast this morning, too, but it wasn't "oh my God what was I thinking?" ... Read more
Ugh...what have I done?
Friday, October 15, 2010      4 comments

So I've been off track for a while with my eating. I get back on track for a few days, and then it's another calorie-fest. Well, for the first time in several weeks, I paid a visit to the scale and the results were not good. What was I th... Read more
Long time, no write
Sunday, September 19, 2010      2 comments

Wow, I can hardly believe it's been almost 4 months since I blogged here. Though it was not intentional (or a conscious effort, at any rate) I sort of took the summer off from my normal vigilance with my diet. I still exercised as much a... Read more
Hooray for personal trainers!
Sunday, May 30, 2010      2 comments

Three personal training sessions down...and I'm feeling great. A little sore today but nothing like it was last weekend. My new gym had a sign-up special so I got 4 sessions for free if I paid the membership fee (which also enables me to have ... Read more
Ouch...like really ouch
Sunday, May 23, 2010      3 comments

So I joined the new gym and it's been great. Aside from the fact that I found out yesterday morning at 6:15 that my access card to the 24/7 location does not work. Can't do anything about that until tomorrow after work, which threw off not onl... Read more
