Ditching The Fat Clothes ...
I am a big believer in getting rid of 'fat clothes.' As soon as something is too big, off it goes to charity. Then if I start to backslide, I realize I have no pants left and I better put down the pizza and pick up some broccoli or I'm going to ... Read more
Out of Africa
Last week was kind of a mess. I was in South Africa (which was lovely!) but it's 26 hours of travel each way, plus jet lag, work stress, and too many social events that I can't really say no to.
1. Too much wine. But GOD I LOVE STELLENBOSC... Read more

I didn't hit my weight goal, and even though I knew it was a HUGE stretch and extremely unlikely, I'm still a bit disappointed in myself. BUT. I'm writing this to convince myself of my own awesomeness and shut up... Read more
Weight Loss Problems (The Good Kind, I Guess!)
I have an embarrassing backlog of dirty laundry piled up, so it was pretty slim pickins when I went to get dressed this morning. But I found a pair of pants I haven't worn in ages and they were always the tighter cut so I figured they'd be a bit... Read more

The Proof Is In the Pudding. Or Jeans. Whatever.
I'm still up 1.6 pounds from my pre-travel madness weight. It's not that big of a deal, but it annoys me. I'm also hormonal, which isn't helping matters. So this weekend I went shopping and I felt like an utter cow. Udder cow? Anyway, I was feel... Read more
Buckling Down to Prevent the Slippery Slope
I just made my third and final* appointment at the GWU weight management lab. My last DEXA scan and consultation with the RD. I had the first two in a month, but then I started traveling and since that third session doesn't expire I wanted to ge... Read more
Choo Choo ... Back on the Train
I had a rough 3 weeks with too much travel and therefore too much food and booze and not enough routine and exercise. And the scale shows it.
Overall, it's not that bad. I'm basically up about 2 pounds. But given it takes a month (if I'm l... Read more
Benefits of a Proper Trainer
I've been around the block enough times to know the difference between a good trainer and a bad one. I've had bad trainers. The ones who took a 10 hour course and signed on at the local gym who just hand you a weight and call it a day. The ones ... Read more
My Mysterious Body
I am so confused by my body sometimes. I went on a (much longer, granted) vacation and came home up about 3 pounds. One came off, but the scale remained up. Then I left again, only for four days this time, and truly ate horribly, and came home h... Read more
The Good, The Bad, and the Protein-y.
I'm back from vacation and up about a pound and a half. Honestly, I'm good with that as I thought it'd be worse.

1. I did the Grouse Grind!
Length: 2.9 kilometres (1.8 miles)
Elevation Gain: 853 metres (2,800 fe... Read more

In The Groove ... Mostly
I go back to my new RD for a 4-week checkup on Thursday. I shared yesterday that I've managed to lose 3.6 pounds this month which is a holy miracle, so I suppose that means something is working. Digging into my handy stats via the app, I realize... Read more
