Words Matter Reflection
Tuesday, February 16, 2021      5 comments

One thing the pandemic has given me is plenty of time for reflection. I reached my goal weight a little over 10 months ago. Just 7 more weeks and 2 days and it will be a year. The whole idea of maintenance was overwhelming and somewhat terrif... Read more

Just about to start another round of BLC. This round, I've joined the Powerful Prism Panther team to change things up a bit. I still consider myself new to maintenance as it has been just under 9 months since I reached my goal weight. I work ... Read more
Holiday Happenings
Saturday, December 26, 2020      7 comments

Eight months into maintenance and I am waffling between confidence and doubt. It has been difficult, with the holiday happenings, to stay on track. There are so many things that are not part of the "normal" routine. Overindulgence is sort of b... Read more

Over the Moon Ecstatic
Wednesday, July 08, 2020      15 comments

I want to hold onto this feeling! Yesterday I had my annual lab work drawn and I got the results today. All of my lab values were NORMAL--my LDL was even a little low. My triglycerides were NORMAL for the first time in over 10 years. My chol... Read more
The problem that is not a problem
Wednesday, June 24, 2020      4 comments

It has now been 11 weeks since I hit my weight loss goal. In a previous blog, I noted that I expected it would take time to adjust to this new reality. It took me over four years to lose the weight and I worked hard to keep that mindset. I di... Read more
The New Reality
Monday, May 18, 2020      8 comments

I reached my goal weight 38 days ago. I am trying to approach this new phase logically, objectively, eagerly. I figured I would just make one change at a time as I transitioned into maintenance. I reset my ticker and nutrition goals. Since I... Read more

ONE pound to go!
Wednesday, March 25, 2020      4 comments

I was pretty excited with the weigh in this morning. I only have one pound to go to get to my goal. My weight peaked at 222 pounds in August 2015. I lost 36 pounds the first year. Then I hit a plateau that lasted several months and ended up g... Read more
Maintenance Frame of Mind
Monday, March 09, 2020      4 comments

I am within reach of the arbitrary goal weight I set as my "final goal". I have struggled with self-doubt regarding maintenance and shared my thoughts on this in a previous blog. It has been about a month and I have done a lot of thinking on t... Read more
