Which end of the calorie range works best for you?

Monday, September 28, 2015      2 comments

I had a brief ray of hope on the scale as it went down lbs for a few days and then popped back up 2 lbs again yesterday. I really don't understand it. When I had dropped I had been eating at the top end of my calorie range, and thought maybe ... Read more

I haven't been blogging...but I haven't given up. I stopped tracking in the summer and told myself I would start again on Labor Day. And promptly sprained my ankle (again) the week before Labor Day. Always something. But - I have... Read more

I lost four pounds, but then I had to stop exercising for a few weeks and gained it right back. COuple things came together in a perfect storm - plantar fasciitis and a bunion hurt on my right foot, my old, used treadmill broke down on me mid-p... Read more

My daughter had her last day of school yesterday (yes, on a Monday thanks to all the silly snow days this winter). I picked her and her friends up at school and we headed straight to Busch Gardens in the 98 degree heat and I followed them aroun... Read more

Really want a big ol' coke

Thursday, June 11, 2015      2 comments

I have been down to one soda at breakfast and drinking tea or water at work (or occasionally milk). But the past two days I don't feel well. I am really tired, mentally on the weekend, have a sore throat - and I REALLY want a coke. I had stop... Read more

Weekdays are easier...

I wasn't really able to track this weekend. There are a variety of reasons, but it really boils down to the fact that tracking is now part of a habit during the week. My job is at a computer all day, so it is really easy to hop onto SP and tr... Read more

Yesterday I read an article on SP about what someone gave up to reach her weight loss goals. I was so inspired by her article (I think from 2012) about giving up things like supporting the fast food & soda industries, etc. I decided to make my... Read more

I have been tracking, but only the past two days have I been able to stay in my calorie range. But, two days is better than no days, so I'll take it. I have been walking a lot - the knee injections have finally made my knee functional en... Read more

I was able to fit in another walk last night. And I have done well with walking today too. But I am struggling with my soda addiction. I tried to go to just one in the morning. I have successfully switched to green tea w/ honey & lemon when ... Read more

Thursday, May 28, 2015      1 comments

So...totally ate the rest of that dang Graeters Ice Cream last night. So stupid. Will definitely NOT be buying more of that! Woke up this morning for a fresh start. I have stayed on target so far and fit a mile of walking in at lunch. ... Read more

Spent Memorial Day weekend hiking with my daughter & two other families (5 kids & 5 adults) in Shenandoah National Park. Kids ranged in age from 5 to 10, and adults ranged in frame from skinny, fit triathletes to - well, me. It was a gre... Read more

Weird week. After I had to put my cat down on Saturday, my sister's dog died on Tuesday and then I had my 40th birthday on Wednesday. And I still haven't gotten the birthday decorations from my daughter's Pokemon Party on Mother's Day weekend ... Read more

I had to put my cat to sleep this past weekend. It was awful. He was old and had congestive heart failure and couldn't breathe, so I know it was the right thing - but it was still awful. And then I drowned the emotions in sugar. Which o... Read more

Starting Over. Again.

Friday, May 15, 2015      2 comments

So last year I turned 39 and I was determined not to go into my 40s still dealing with weight. SO I started tracking. And moving. And eating less. And I lost about 25 lbs! But then I stopped tracking. And moving. And started eating more...... Read more
