Another Non-Scale Victory, Day 2
Saturday, March 05, 2016      8 comments

I can't believe I have 2 in a row to post, but I do! I took the day off yesterday. I wound up being sick with a sore throat and stuffy nose, but that is beside the point. I had told my husband we were going to lunch together, and we did. ... Read more
Non-Scale Victory
Friday, March 04, 2016      6 comments

Yesterday was a challenge! I had plans to go out for happy hour with some friends from work. This is scary because when I lost the weight the last time I put my entire life on hold for the months I lost the weight. You may recall I did so w... Read more
Does Your Weight Match Your Body Image Perception?
Wednesday, March 02, 2016      7 comments

When you look in the mirror, do you see yourself as you are? I ask because my body image always seems to be a few months behind reality. When I lost the weight I kept thinking I should buy larger clothes. I had to have a friend come with me... Read more
Being a Sane Adult More Often
Monday, February 29, 2016      5 comments

I've decided that those messages of "I deserve to eat anything I want and it will magically not add weight to my body" is my temper tantrum 4 year old. I need to be the sane adult more often. This weekend was a great victory for the sane ad... Read more
Non-Scale Victory - Choices
Friday, February 26, 2016      18 comments

Today we went for a meeting with our financial advisor. We were early, and it was not nice weather, so we looked for a place to wait. My husband suggested Brueggers. I love Brueggers. Don't get me wrong. But I also know their food loves my ... Read more

I had a great time at the Sassy '60s party. Here was my look. The hostess did a great job. We had 60's music, a punch bowl with an ice ring, gr... Read more
Tomorrow's Challenge - A Party
Friday, February 19, 2016      6 comments

Yesterday went perfectly. I had my food with me and stayed on program all day. It was a long and tiring day, but a successful one. Tomorrow will be a challenge. I have been invited to a party where there will be an overabundance of unhealth... Read more
There is a Salad Club??
Wednesday, February 17, 2016      8 comments

I first posted this almost verbatim in one of my teams, and then I liked it so much I wanted to blog it. Today I found out that a major presentation I gave in late January has been selected for extra visibility. Out of 85 people, I was one ... Read more
Accept No Substitutes
Tuesday, February 16, 2016      7 comments

One of the thoughts I am trying to shift into a healthier mindset is "I must be perfect to be successful." That's not true. We do not have to be perfect. We have to make the right choices more often than the poor ones. If we do that, we will be ... Read more
Not to Plan but Tracked Everything!
Monday, February 15, 2016      8 comments

Yesterday was not perfect. Fortunately, perfection isn't what we need to be successful. That's a message I'll be telling myself over and over. Instead of Eat All The Things, and going completely off the rails, I tracked everything I ate. He... Read more

Back in the 180s!!
Saturday, February 13, 2016      5 comments

I must be honest. My determination to stick to the plan flagged last night after dinner. I sat there feeling a little sorry for myself as my morning confidence wore off. I thought about that "oh heck it doesn't matter anyway" self-sabotage. ... Read more

Much Better - And Here I Come 180's!
Wednesday, February 10, 2016      10 comments

I've been on track since my last blog entry, and as of this morning down 4.6 pounds. Even 0.2 down tomorrow puts me back in the 180's, which would be great. I'm not finding it difficult to stay on track. I'm not tempted to go over my calori... Read more
How Often Do We Dust Ourselves Off?
Sunday, February 07, 2016      5 comments

Let's be honest. I've been languishing, and gaining, since I got back from my big September trip. I do not regret the choices I made for the trip. I regret the choices I made after. I look back and I see "hey I'm back on track" posts. So wh... Read more
