Emotional Eating - Husband's Surgery
Friday, July 31, 2015      4 comments

My husband had surgery today. It was nothing critical and nothing to be overly worried about. I thought I was comfortable with it, but as he went into surgery I discovered I had the shakes. Now that he's home and safe and everything is ok I... Read more

Last night I thought "I'll have a glass of wine. I have enough calories." Then I gave it another thought. History has shown that when I have that one glass of wine, suddenly I decide I can have two. When I have two, that French Bread l... Read more
Changes in My Mood
Wednesday, July 29, 2015      0 comments

One of the reasons I decided I needed to get back on program was my mood. I have a stressful job and I told myself "it's the job." But reality is my previous job was far more stressful and my mood was chipper while I was on program. I challenged... Read more
Photos? Scary!
Tuesday, July 28, 2015      2 comments

I've read some blogs that ask why we think some people do not post photos. I never posted a single photo until very recently and it is my profile photo. I found that I like seeing people's profile photos and decided to add my own. Today I'v... Read more

I've never had an active Friend on Sparkpeople. In all the years, in all the weight I've taken off and put on, never once did any post show up in my friend feed. This time I've taken the time to read blogs and find a few people who seem to reson... Read more
How did I do this to myself?
Sunday, July 26, 2015      3 comments

I step on the scale or look in the mirror and my primary thought is "how did I do this to myself?" I was at goal. I look at the pictures when I was there and I look so triumphant. So why on earth am I here. Again. Heavier than I was when I star... Read more

I attended some long and intense training this week out of state. Food choices were a struggle. I made the best choices I could not knowing what was in anything. Lots and lots of salad. I am still disappointed with the scale upon my return home.... Read more
Is This Me?
Saturday, July 11, 2015      1 comments

When I got my new job in February I thought my energy would come back and I would return to doing the things I used to do. Things like go to museums and bike riding on the weekends. The stress from my previous job wore me into the ground. I... Read more
Not Alone
Wednesday, July 08, 2015      2 comments

I've been reading so many blogs. Watching vlogs. Paying attention. And you know what I've found? I'm not the only one. Not that I want anyone else to hit goal and then regain the weight. Not that I would wish a struggle on another. But it is com... Read more
When it gets even more humbling
Monday, July 06, 2015      0 comments

Well. Not only was I humbled but I am even more humbled if that's possible. 46 pounds up. Yes indeed. Which puts my net loss since I was at my highest at 36 pounds. I am not as comfortable or as happy. I've definitely been using food emotionally... Read more
Day 2 of Re-Do
Tuesday, May 12, 2015      0 comments

Made it thus far! Went out to lunch with a colleague and had a moment of panic when I was told the menu item I knew was on program was no longer carried. I saw a sign for a new salad which was also on program and ordered. Cheerfully ate it and f... Read more

Stuck with program thus far today. Forced myself to get on that elliptical. Did not get as far as I wanted, but at least I started. Worked up quite the sweat!... Read more

We took the bicycles out and rode about 5 miles. This is the first time since 2013 we've ridden the bikes. Primarily due to my previous job and the exhaustion it left me with. It felt great. But now everything hurts! That just means I need to do... Read more

Here we are, and I have stuck to my guns. I got up at a ridiculously early hour yesterday and got on the elliptical for 30 minutes. I went walking at lunch today in the cold. It looked bright and pretty, but by the time I finished I was bundled ... Read more

I got up early to use those blasted weights, but I did it. Again. This time I added more crunches to sit ups and tried to do "core" exercises. That is what my girlfriend told me it means when you face the floor, rest your weight on your arms, an... Read more
