Getting serious
Sunday, April 14, 2019      12 comments

So my weight was down a little bit when I came back from vacation last Monday, but today it was back up. It’s time to get serious. I hereby vowed to track all food, to plan ahead, and to think about my weight and my accomplishments and a positiv... Read more
So far so good

So I've been "restarted" for about 5 days now. And good news! I really seem to have kicked it into gear! It helps so much to be able to communicate with my trainer about this -- like having an AA "sponsor" on call. I don't need him much tod... Read more
Yet another new start
Saturday, February 09, 2019      10 comments

So I had a meltdown the other night ... having gained a few lbs, yet again, I was at my highest weight in years. Something needed to be done. So I've started over ... again. I'm now trying to track food the day before, so that I have a plan... Read more

Happy 2019! It's a new year! I'm so confused. On the one hand, I am working on cultivating a new attitude for this year, one of more self-acceptance and self-actualization. I am trying hard to focus more on the positive and on what I do wel... Read more
Accentuate the positive
Wednesday, December 05, 2018      13 comments

So I'm having trouble with my attitude. I have gained about 8 lbs since my lowest recent weight (the fact that I have to specify, which lowest weight, is not a good sign). My previous week's weigh in was 182.1. Today's weigh in w... Read more

Today I was in a workshop all day. I was over calories and was hungry all day :( but I made the best possible choices, so I don’t feel too bad about it. Noticing that a good breakfast that includes protein (a hard-boiled egg) and lots of fiber (... Read more
Sugar cravings
Wednesday, October 10, 2018      14 comments

So I joined the Bust Your Sugar Cravings Challenge, and my first task is to blog about my sugar cravings. So ... do I crave sugar? Absolutely. Usually in the evenings, and/or when I am stuck at my desk and kind of bored of the work I have t... Read more
The goal is progress, not perfection

This is an active vacation. We’ve had a ton of fun, and weight-wise, I’ve also had some serious NSVs: I think my shorts fit better. I went shopping and bought 3 cute dresses and one top, all of which look great and will get lots of wear. And I’v... Read more
How I learned to stop self-loathing and love my body
Tuesday, August 14, 2018      8 comments

I’ve let myself go! Can’t believe that I am above 180 pounds again! Such a disappointment. And of course, even though I was trying to ignore how my body looks in the mirror, now that I know, I can’t ignore it anymore. When I look at myself... Read more

So today is our first full day in Sunriver, Oregon. I’m going to do my best to follow a loose plan. - healthy breakfast including protein. Today was instant oatmeal and soft boiled eggs. - snacks: we’re bringing apples, cheese, and beef j... Read more
In flight plan
Sunday, August 12, 2018      5 comments

For some reason I’m feeling panicky this morning f. Could it be because I’m about to get on a plane with two children (and my husband)? In any case, I’ve been in calories for the last two days. Let’s keep up the streak. - breakfast: cottage... Read more
Today's plan
Saturday, August 11, 2018      7 comments

Yesterday's plan went great, thanks in large part to writing it down. I had half a crepe and half a salad for lunch rather than what I'd been speculating about ... other than that, I was on track, and I ended the day within my calorie range. So ... Read more
Today I am determined
Friday, August 10, 2018      15 comments

OK, so. I have been kinda-sorta trying at weight control. And I am up 10 lbs, to 181. That's a whole new weight decade and way up from my recent low of about 172. So it's time to get serious. Forget this kinda-sorta BS. The way to do this i... Read more
Goals unmet. Try again tomorrow!
Saturday, February 24, 2018      14 comments

So. I didn't meet my goals today. No exercise beyond PT (it's hard since that is already a major time suck). Way over calories (not exactly sure why, but it's a combo of lunch out (even though I made good choices, salmon over Caesar salad), Shab... Read more
