After all my whining about weight gain the other day...
... I lost half an inch off my waist and and an inch off my butt. I taped myself this morning after I realized the pants I bought three weeks ago are sagging on me. I had a job fair to go to, and if y'all remember three weeks ago I bought a few ... Read more
A setback? I hate setbacks!
"Where did the 6 extra lb come from?" I moaned yesterday morning as I stared at my scale. I was expecting 2 or 3 lb gain - I had a really fun weekend, after all, but 6? Really? I wasn't that bad over the weekend. Granted, I drank way more then I... Read more
Less than three lb left until goal for October!
I weigh in at 161.8 lb today! That's less than 3 lb from my goal for October, which is to get into 150's. I am hoping that the next two weeks will be enough to drop the pounds, so I can look fabulous in my superhero costume on Halloween. To that... Read more
The best problem ever, and I need some good advice.
I have a problem. It's called, lack of clothing. The brand new jeans I got three weeks ago can be taken off without unbuttoning them, and threaten to slide down my behind when I move. I tried size 8 pants at the mall today, and realized... I'm n... Read more
All the small things
I love being on vacation. Being on vacation means I can cook my own food, work out twice a day, get my 8 hours of sleep. This is reflecting well in the fact that I am losing a bit more weight and feeling good. Now if I can only find a new job an... Read more
... and I'm back!
I made it back home. While 'in transit' these last four weeks, I let my diet and workouts lapse by nessesity. More diet then workout - I managed to get in a 5 mile run in a tiny little country called Kyrgyzstan, walk all over the beautiful city ... Read more
It is the best description for my life right now. A change is occurring, with all the hectic rush and confusion that usually accompanies a major move. For a while, things will be unpredictable, busy, and continuously changing. During this time, ... Read more
"Fat" Girls night out, and guilt guilt guilt
"It's our Girl's Night Out! We should pig out if we want to!" Said my (well-meaning) best friend to me yesterday as I listlessly picked at french fries on my plate at the local restaurant. There was a huge platter of nachos in the middle of the... Read more
Happy New Year!
Today is New Year's Eve according to the Jewish tradition. As I sat in the service and listened to the Rabbi reflect on why last year was bad and next year will hopefully be better, I thought about how far I came this year from last year. I am a... Read more
Been away for a while...(New goals)
And the scale finally moved, down to 164 (woohoo!!!!!!!!!) In honor of this, I set up a new system of goals based on the stuff I'd like to accomplish within the next year (13-14).
I would like to reach the 150's by Halloween. That means a los... Read more
Is stuck. I think it is broken (both of them, in my room and in my gym). It won't move past 168, and I really want to move past 168. Because of my ever-present math homework, I haven't been able to do as much working out as I'd like, and I binge... Read more
The fainting goat... I mean... girl
Thank God for the lack of privacy. I never thought I'd say that, but today the fact that we have a shower trailer instead of private showers saved me a headache, literally. The morning started out good - I got up right on time (0500) and went ou... Read more
Superhero and a new goal
I picked American Dream as my superhero avatar. She... Suits me, outside of the blond hair anyway. I think I'd really like to wear the American Dream outfit for Halloween. If I continue on my weightloss path, and manage to lose 5-8 lb a month, I... Read more
The cycle of stress in nature
I haven't been blogging for the past few days. This was a result of a complete freak-out I had over my physical fitness test that I took today. I am prone to freaking out - I tend to do it on a small scale (MATH HOMEWORK NOT DONE A WEEK PRIOR AA... Read more
The too few calories "problem"
I just checked my daily nutrition numbers. I am under calories - yet again. You'd think it would be the other way around, I'd be running over, but that is not the case. I try to eat well, however due to my myriads of food issues my consumption i... Read more
