Thursday, October 17, 2019      6 comments

The bad news is that I have just been off the rails for months now, with many attempts at trying to get back on track but with none of them sticking. Then, after some huge holiday eating, visiting with friends, etc. I stepped on my dusty scale ... Read more

Wednesday, June 05, 2019      5 comments

I've been tracking for at least a few days now (!) and as I get on the scale every morning I keep looking for weight loss that isn't there yet. Today I found myself feeling disappointed and I realized that my perception of how hard I am working ... Read more
Ugh - fall goals went by the wayside. This is my winter rant!
Thursday, December 27, 2018      3 comments

Well, I've been on a food bender for far too long now and have been avoiding the scale most days because I know I have been out of control with all the cookies I've been given, snacks in the house, and eating out. Seriously 2-3,000 calories most... Read more
Sticking with the Fall goals so far
Friday, October 26, 2018      5 comments

I think the little switch in my brain finally flipped back to "losing weight" mode and I am back at it strong this week. The weekend wasn't so great since we had company and ate out, but the weekdays were all good and I have a plan for this week... Read more

Well, I did NOT accomplish my September goals AT ALL. So I'm using this information to figure out how to move on and accomplish what I want. I looked back on my reports and I have been maintaining my weight for nearly 6 months now. Which is gre... Read more

I decided that I needed to commit to some definite short term goals to help me get back in the groove of staying with the program and getting back to the business of losing weight and not just maintaining my weight. 1. Starting today - sti... Read more
Body dysmorphia? I feel thinner than I look!
Tuesday, September 04, 2018      6 comments

I think that's part of why I haven't been doing so great with losing weight these past 6 months or so. I'm comfortable where I am and I honestly feel thin... Read more
Overweight and not obese!
Thursday, May 10, 2018      7 comments

It has taken nearly a month to lose this last pound but I finally did it and am now in the "overweight" category and out of the "obese" category. I started off as Obese Category III and it has been a slow journey down to overweight. My goal is ... Read more
I am going to break my regular chocolate habit
Wednesday, May 02, 2018      5 comments

One of the things that has helped me not feel deprived while I have been restricting my calories has been to have a piece of dark chocolate most nights - usually 4-5 nights a week. I try to keep some room in my daily calories for those 73 calori... Read more
I can eat it tomorrow
Sunday, April 22, 2018      4 comments

That seems to be my mantra lately if I go over my calories or am thinking about going over my calories. I remind myself that tomorrow is another day, and that I can eat whatever I am craving tomorrow. It really helps me to think that I am not s... Read more

I went shopping for new work pants (is "slacks" an old fashioned word?) this weekend and realized that right now I am fitting into 3 different sizes. I was wearing a pair of size 12 capris on Saturday while shopping, bought one slightly tight-fi... Read more
I can dance again!
Monday, March 12, 2018      8 comments

The last few times my husband and I were at an event I got SO breathless from dancing for a few minutes that I just couldn't. It was uncomfortable and difficult and I was huffing and puffing. But these past two weekends we had a wedding as well ... Read more

Yesterday was a planned eating day. I went to try a new restaurant with my sister, then my husband and I attended a gala dinner in honor of some people we know. So lunch - wasn't great. Had them pack up what I didn't eat, then tossed the package... Read more
More than 60 pounds lost so far and some thoughts
Thursday, March 01, 2018      6 comments

"So far" being the key words. It is still steady but slow. At most a pound a week. But I keep looking to the future and thinking, wow, by the end of the summer I could be in the 150s.... by next winter I could be in the 140s. That's powerful mo... Read more
