Six meals a day
For the past week I've been writing down everything I eat, trying to eat at fairly regular times, and eating 6x a day: three meals and three snacks.
It seems to be working! I don't get too hungry or go crazy when it is time to eat. I reali... Read more
Highest weight ever! Need to do something new
I hit my highest weight ever with my 2nd pregnancy. I'm now over 200lbs and while I don't give a crap about body image, really, it's affecting my health. Feet hurting...clothes fitting not-right...harder to get up and down...and I know based on ... Read more
Since my latest restart...
I'm down 5 lbs since my latest restart, and 3 weeks into the 5 week C25K program.
My next challenge is taking out the 1 min. walk intervals (I've been doing 40 min. of 1 min walk, 4 min run) and running for 35 minutes straight. It sounds d... Read more
Starting over for the millionth billionth time
I have been a pile of stress lately, and I let it totally derail me. I'm pretty much back where I started. I topped off at 200 and am working my way back down, but it's time to eat like a friggin' adult again and have some self control.

Motivation is flagging!
The closer it gets to Easter, the more my motivation is dropping off. I did OK most of last week then I had a sugar binge. This week it's been sort of on and off again with tracking and being motivated.
I did get back to the gym so that's a... Read more
Back on track.
I did fine over the weekend, and tonight I have my class again, so another weigh-in. I'm not sure I can top last week's (I was down nearly 2lbs! yay!). But I'll be happy with anything other than a gain.
It's finally feeling like spring, so ... Read more
Fell off the wagon today. Argh.
I have been doing really, really well the past 3 weeks! But today I was at a conference and by the afternoon I was bored and tired. There were sweets everywhere. EVERYWHERE. At lunch there was a dessert buffet and during breaks, the coffee bar w... Read more
We went on an outing today that included lunch, at our local museum. In that past I've either gotten a sandwich and fries, or the side plate with fries, some mayonaisy salad, mac n cheese, etc.
Today I ordered the black bean burger and toma... Read more
Figuring out that I'm a serious emotional eater!
It's been a while! Although I made it through most of the holidays without gaining more weight, I didn't lose much either. Then I picked some up in January. After I started a nutrition/weight loss class.
That was a wake-up call. I had been... Read more
A couple of small goals...
Since my last entry I had my doctor's appointment, and she confirmed that if I stick to my calorie range (1400-1600) I *should* lose weight. I have no thyroid issues. So I'm glad I got a wake-up call that yes, the problem is me and my lack of co... Read more
Time to seriously get serious...?
Ugh, I feel pretty awful. I totally binged today. I had a grilled chicken dinner planned, but we spent too long at the pumpkin patch so we ate out, and I ate way too much. Plus we had reeses pumpkins.
Moving on...I have about 2 months befo... Read more
After my last entry, I woke up the next day with horrible shoulder and neck pain. I think I overdid it assuming I could jump back in and swim a mile when I hadn't been for a week or so. But it could also have been the weights. Anyway, I had to t... Read more
I'm so over being sick. Literally and figuratively; my daughter has brought two colds home from preschool so far this fall and then we had allergies from playing out in the yard over the weekend.
I was sick last week so I only got to the gy... Read more
Back from my adventure
I had my trip and have been back a little less than a week. It was a nice trip, but so hard to stay on track eating out all the time!
I've been doing fine sticking with portion control since then though. I also returned to the gym ASAP and... Read more

I started off my Friday with a mile-long swim (and then some). I swam for 50 minutes straight, except to get out and grab a drink of water. I was going to do water aerobics, but once I got to the gym I decided to just swim laps. I don't know wh... Read more
