A Non-Scale Victory
Thursday, March 26, 2009      11 comments

I have been wearing XL T-shirts ever since I can remember. Depending on the cut of my shirt and my current weight, sometimes they could be a little snug. Today in my office, they were giving out free t-shirts (some organization; I am sti... Read more
Couldn't handle the praise

I know it's been a little while. I have a few things i can comment on. Last Saturday, the 14th, I went to a family gathering. My cousin's (actually my husband's) son just returned from a tour of duty in Iraq. He has been in the military for ... Read more
Just to clarify

When I talk about giving up sugar, I am only talking about refined sugars, which includes HFCS of course. I am NOT talking about fruit. I love fruit and I think it is very good for you!!! It is beside the point that today I was not very good ... Read more
What is my biggest healthy eating accomplishment so far?
Tuesday, March 10, 2009      4 comments

I just answered this question on the Daily Spark. I LOVE edamame!!! A year ago, I never even heard of it. Now it is one of my real favorites. Give me shelled edamame, and I am a very happy woman. Fortunately, it is frequently on the salad b... Read more
It's Deja Vu all Over Again
Sunday, March 01, 2009      6 comments

The above is a quote from Yogi Berra, though he may not have really said it. The significance here is that I experienced a sense of deja vu when I was in California last week. We were at a Polo Ralph Lauren outlet, and that is where I was when... Read more
Lost my internet (temporarily)

My participation here is likely to be erratic until Sunday. As luck would have it, that is March 1, so I can start off with the new month. We got home from California, and almost immediately, we started having problems with our internet. ... Read more
I'm Back - in more ways than one

We touched down at JFK Airport at 4:45 am on Monday morning, which is 1:45 am Pacific time. The trip was really good. I had a great time with my son, David. The short reprieve from the cold weather was nice, too. As for my parents, they are... Read more
Greetings from California

Well, I am here, and the weather is beautiful. I am having a hard time eating normally, if you will. Part of it is the time change, and part of it is being away from my normal routine. So far I am not proud of how I am doing, but I will just ... Read more
Recap for the week
Sunday, February 15, 2009      4 comments

I am down 1.4 lbs. this week. Of course, that is after a 2 lb. gain, so I still net a gain for the month. What I did right: Major elimination of sugar. I did a reasonable job adhering to my goals for 5 of the 7 days. Some difficul... Read more
What worked and what didn't
Sunday, February 08, 2009      5 comments

Well, I am up 2 lbs. this week. It is discouraging, but I really think I can stop it. I think that a lot of us that have let our weight get out of hand have had a point (a high weight limit, if you will) where we will really not want to gain m... Read more
Quick Entry
Saturday, February 07, 2009      3 comments

I haven't blogged for a few days. I have not been as good as I should be about sugar. Once again, I feel like I really have to swear it off pretty much. Small pieces of dark chocolate seem to be ok. Candy itself (like jelly beans) doesn't ha... Read more
Finished the month
Sunday, February 01, 2009      7 comments

Down 7 lbs. Not quite as good as I said it would be, but not so bad either. Gotta go get 'em this month. I was hoping to go to the gym tonight with DH to use some of the machines. I figured with Super Bowl Sunday it wouldn't be too cro... Read more
Much reason to be proud in spite of setbacks
Friday, January 30, 2009      5 comments

Well, as the month comes to a close, I tend to get reflective. So here goes: I continue to "cheat" a little more often than I should. I would like to make February my month to analyze my triggers and try to tame them. This gets me upse... Read more

Well, I survived the booster club dinner yesterday. I actually think I did pretty well. Only one glass of sangria (I was more concerned about staying sober than drinking too many calories LOL). The worst problem of the day turned out to... Read more
Leaving 190-ville!
Saturday, January 24, 2009      4 comments

I weighed myself this morning. Remember, I am struggling to find the right balance with my scale (no pun intended) and how often I weigh myself. I had not weighed myself in a few days, and guess what! I weighed 189 this morning. It is ... Read more
