Thursday, January 10, 2013      1 comments

I was SO good last year, but I've slipped in the past six months - particularly the past 4 months. It all comes down to lifestyle and life schedule and my routine has been completely transformed. I'm getting back on track now, while I'm still in... Read more

The rough symptoms from my medication adjustment have gone away and I'm feeling much better physically. I'm less puffy and my pants are fitting loosely again. Still in the low 130s, holding steady for the past 6 months! But the bigger news is: ... Read more

Mild TMI warning... It's been a week and a half since my endocrinologist appointment re: "PCOS-like symptoms", when he told me to stop my androgen-blocker and cyclic progesterone, and double my metformin to see if that would get me ovulati... Read more
My Visit to the Endocrinologist
Wednesday, June 13, 2012      1 comments

I've been trying to see an endocrinologist (hormone specialist doctor) for over a year. It took me nine months and a new family doctor to get a referral, and then another six months for the appointment to roll around. I finally saw him yesterday... Read more
Weight headed back down now that my meds are renewed...
Sunday, June 03, 2012      1 comments

No, not diet pills! But my weight started spiking up after I ran out of my blood-pressure and anti-androgen meds in March. They're both partially diuretics, so I wondered whether the 5.5-lb weight gain was my tissues and blood carrying more wate... Read more

I had hoped that my 2-3 lb weight gain since early March would have gone down by now as my body adjusted to my biking regime. Unfortunately it's only gone up another 2 lbs! What gives? Here are all the factor that have changed: I've been b... Read more

So I'm up 2.5 pounds from 130.5, the lowest weight that I saw on March 17th and February 20th. To be honest, I only ever saw that lowest weight on four mornings, so it's not terribly unusual that I am fluctuating above it. But I am used to... Read more

Friday, March 02, 2012      5 comments

Ha ha, that is a provocative title because I like attention. All true, though the images are perhaps a little more modest than implied! I just got back at 1am on Thursday from my 5-day mini-vacation to a little beach resort with my wife An... Read more

So I'm in the "weight loss week" that I get some months, where the water weight recedes and the fat loss I'm accrued during that time becomes apparent all at once - this week it was 2.5 lbs! It is exactly what I was aiming for in my eating range... Read more
The Importance of Bulk for Hungry Days
Tuesday, February 07, 2012      3 comments

The past few days have been hungry days! I don't track on weekends but the weekdays were all at the top of my range, which is fine. I've set my range from 1350 to 1650, from 1200 to 1600. I rarely eat below 1400, and on days when I'm just a tad ... Read more

Lower-Carb Veggie Sushi with Spaghetti Squash
Tuesday, January 24, 2012      1 comments

1960208 I used to LOVE sushi, but since I found out that I have insulin issues over a year ago, I haven't had any. Sushi rice has a very high glycemic rating. I've been experim... Read more
Body Fat Score Means Adjusting My New Goal: Just 5 more lbs, not 10!
Monday, January 16, 2012      0 comments

I've done some more investigation and reflection on my body's needs, and I've decided that it wouldn't be wise or sustainable to lose 10 more lbs. On the suggestion of my Sparkfriend Nettie-Delgado, I checked out some bodyfat estimation sites, b... Read more
Setting a new goal for 2012: 10 more pounds and 1.25 more inches!
Thursday, January 05, 2012      1 comments

So I made it to a healthy weight in August 2011, and 5 months later I had lost another 10 pounds to get to my original goal: 135! I am still not fully able to grasp it. When I weighed 180-195 lbs for so many years, I didn't think it would be pos... Read more
