Now that I am not stuffing down my emotions with food, I find my temper is a little hard to control. Right now I am spitting mad and having a hard time not flipping out at people. Since I am the boss it makes it even harder, because I know I cou... Read more

Trouble
Tuesday, February 05, 2008      1 comments

I'm having a hard time the last couple days. First I had a night of unplanned eating on Friday. After adding up all the calories it wasn't that bad. But since then I have had lots of doubts--doubts that I am adding my calories correctly and doub... Read more
No Weigh!

Today I had a routine doctor appointment and we spent a long time talking about weight loss. My doctor laid down the law about weighing myself--only every 3rd day at the most and once a week ideally. Here's the weird thing....I totally ag... Read more
Just a Spot of Frustration

Well, I have had my A-ha moment (with apologies to Oprah)!! I have been working on dieting and exercising, and had lost 6.5 pounds. Then I hit what seemed like a plateau....no weight loss for several days, although I have been exercising a... Read more
