My One Remaining Struggle
Friday, April 26, 2013      5 comments

I did not weigh myself today despite an incredible urge to do just that. I've decided that, since I began the ETL food plan on a Sunday, that Sunday will be my "weigh day." I am not anticipating much loss - if any - this week. I had some small ... Read more
No Despair Allowed
Wednesday, April 24, 2013      7 comments

Today I weighed 212 exactly. Yesterday I weighed 212 point something....but I don't remember what. If it was .9 then that is an acceptable weight loss for one day....but I really don't recall what the fraction was. I'm disgusted with myself b... Read more
A Kink in the Road
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      6 comments

For the past two nights I have been in severe pain from my neck (which is being attacked by Psoriatic Arthritis.) As a result of my poor sleep, I have been snacking at night. I've only eaten healthy foods however, as Dr Fuhrman explains in the... Read more
N.E.A.T.
Monday, April 22, 2013      5 comments

I just learned on Spark Coach about Non Exercise Activity Thermogenesis. This is the activities we do that are active but not necessarily exercise. It is here that I am killed. Even when I work out, the rest of the time I sit in my recliner. ... Read more
End of the Week Evaluation
Sunday, April 21, 2013      9 comments

My weight loss is going full steam ahead. I've lost 7 pounds this week. Dr. Fuhrman said rapid weight loss is to be expected in the early days of his program and eventually it will slow to about ten pounds a month....so I'm not concerned that ... Read more
On Daily Weights
Saturday, April 20, 2013      5 comments

Recently I've drawn some criticism for weighing myself daily. I can understand when a person is "stuck"- and not really making headway in their eating plan - how weighing oneself daily is not a good idea. It will only lead to frustration and o... Read more
Stalemate
Friday, April 19, 2013      7 comments

Today I weigh the same as I did yesterday. Now I know that is no reason to be upset. I mean I really CAN'T expect to continue to lose a pound a day every day. But somehow, yeah, I'm disappointed. I knew after I tracked yesterday that I was ki... Read more
Sabotage? or Cop out?
Thursday, April 18, 2013      5 comments

Initially, my husband and I started on this ETL plan together...both of us propelled by our own individual struggles with disease...and for my husband, this is a life or death situation. However. IN the past two days he has begun to revert back... Read more
Day Three: Pound Three
Wednesday, April 17, 2013      4 comments

Well folks, I think I have finally figured out the secret to weight loss for me. It is contained in the book Eat to Live by Joel Furhman. It involves no tracking (although I guess you could if you wanted to)...It involves no portion control.... Read more
My True Motivations
Monday, April 15, 2013      2 comments

Today is my second and a half day of following Dr Fuhrman's Eat to Live program. I'm feeling good. Not deprived. You get to eat a lot of food and already I'm noticing my taste buds are more sensitive to the natural flavors in things. Sp... Read more

Doing What I Can
Saturday, April 13, 2013      5 comments

Today I did my Spark Coach. I've been AWOL for the past three or four days. I was paging through some SparkPages and I encountered a blog which mentioned the 12 Steps to Recovery from addiction. While I do not feel that I have an addiction som... Read more
A Respite
Thursday, April 11, 2013      5 comments

I honestly have fallen off the wagon this past week. For a while I was doing well with the 8 hour diet....then it became like every other day and now....it's like I'm doing a big fat nothing. I know the problem at its root is that I've stopped... Read more

My kitty had two stones surgically removed from her bladder on Wed....She has not had a bowl movement since then and has been hiding under my bed or in the basement (which is something she only does when she is hurt or not feeling well.) Last n... Read more
I Need this Blog Entry
Friday, April 05, 2013      4 comments

to figure some things out for myself. I told you about the four hour diet. I was going great guns with that. Then one night I cheated. I told myself it didn't matter if I had a snack that one night. But I've just realized, that just as I can... Read more
