April 2013:

I was almost half way to goal. And then I got sick last fall, and was on prednisone. But it's Spring, I seem to finally be over the worst of whatever that horrid bug we all got was, the one that lingers for months. I'm having arthroscopic knee surgery next week to remove torn cartilage and a large cyst, so early lack of mobility should help cut down on impulse eating, and hopefully after that improved mobility will help with exercise.

April 2013:

I was almost half way to goal. And then I got sick last fall, and was on prednisone. But it's Spring, I seem to finally be over the worst of whatever that horrid bug we all got was, the one that lingers for months. I'm having arthroscopic knee surgery next week to remove torn cartilage and a large cyst, so early lack of mobility should help cut down on impulse eating, and hopefully after that improved mobility will help with exercise.

My current long term goal is still to get my weight down around 140 to 145.

February 2012: I'm now half way to my goal! The less aggressive time frame means that I feel good if I lose more, and when I have bad weeks, I don't feel bad, which seems to be helping my motivation. I'm switching myself over to a primal/paleo diet, since I've realized that the fewer carbs, and in particular grains, I eat, the less my arthritis seems to act up. I also haven't had to take a prilosec in three weeks, after months of noticing within hours if I missed my morning dose, and occasionally having to double it. I'm not using the calorie tracker at the moment, since the important thing for both my general health and my weight seems to be keeping my carb numbers under 125, the lower the better.



June 2011 Intro Text:

Starting again. Still trying to lose the baby fat. 20 pounds a baby. Plus about another 20, just to keep the first two company. The youngest is now 13, I've been talking about/starting to do this for way too many years, and the nice cardiologist I saw as part of the migraine workup recommended "an agressive weight loss plan".

My Goals:
Feb 2012:

Weight down to 160 by Easter.

Ultimately I want to get down to between 140 and 150. The more muscle mass I've been able to build, the higher the final weight can be.



My Program:
I weigh in with Wii Fit Plus every morning when before breakfast. I'll be doing a lap or two of my employers walking track at lunch when the weather permits. I'll be doing at least 30 minutes of cardio, whether walking, Wii Fit, WIO or DDR, or heavy yard and house work every day.

Weight updates on Wednesdays.

Personal Information:
I am a *mumble mumble* year old medical librarian living in Connecticut.

I have a husband, two daughters, ages 15 and 13, as well as 3 guinea pigs, and three cats, a stray tabby with crossed siamese eyes, and two older girls from the humane society, a calico tabby with an extro toe on each foot who's partially blind and a little arthritic, and an obese (we've got her down 3 pounds so far!) long hair tabby who looks to be at least part maine coon or norwegian forest.

Other Information:
I'm on US Eastern Time (GMT-5)
