Sometimes, weighing in is so confusing!
See, I don't own a scale. I have had an adversarial relationship with it for many years, and ultimately, it was time for a breakup. So when it broke, out it went.

Yesterday was my first 5k!
I have been looking forward to this day for over a year. As a kid, I always hated running; but as an adult, it looks like fun to have some exercise that can be done solo, with minimal equipment, in a beautiful locati... Read more

An excellent day from a weight-loss perspective!
Relatively low calorie breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner. I was home working, or trying to work, most of the day, and headed to the gym at 5 PM. Despite my snack of cottage cheese and fruit, an... Read more
So ... still trying to bust through my plateau.
Friday was a really busy day. Preschool graduation in the morning(!!!), then a 45-minute drive to Santa Monica for a professional meeting, then back home and Shabbat dinner with the family. I... Read more
For the past 3-4 weeks, my weight has been holding steady. 179 lbs.
Now, the good news is that I haven't gained anything. I've lost between 8 and 10 lbs, which is nothing to sneeze at, and I've settled in the 170's, which psychologically f... Read more
