TOPS Tuesday 24 Feb 2015

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      5 comments

The TOPS scale was good to me this week. I lost 1.7 pounds. Our weight recorder was absent, excused of course, so I assisted with weigh in. Generally I don't look at my chart every week. Since I had to log my own weight this time I couldn't ... Read more

Surging Ahead With My Fitbit

Monday, February 23, 2015      1 comments

Well, I've had my Fitbit Surge for a week now. They claim the more you wear it the more accurate it is. I've been wearing it nearly all of the time except in the shower, and when it's charging. The numbers for calories burned and heart rate s... Read more

TOPS Tuesday 17 Feb 2015

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      4 comments

I wasn't sure what the TOPS scale would say this week. I had a ham sandwich for lunch yesterday and I know how that affects my weight. Turns out that I did alright. I lost 1.5 pounds over the last 2 weeks. Not a lot, but at least the scale i... Read more

Getting Fit Bit By Bit

Sunday, February 15, 2015      8 comments

My mom gave me some money for Christmas last year. I've been sitting on my stash of Christmas cash for awhile now. I decided to wait until I figured out what I really wanted otherwise it would get piddled away a little here and there until it w... Read more

Keeping Food Fresh Longer

Thursday, February 12, 2015      7 comments

Sometimes it seems like I throw away more veggies and fruit than I eat, especially lettuce, strawberries, and raspberries. Onions, cucumbers and tomatoes don't last very long in the fridge after they have been cut either. Ok, maybe that's stre... Read more

Wednesday, February 11, 2015      1 comments

Our TOPS meeting was canceled last night because the weather wasn't cooperating. It started snowing around noon, and continued the rest of the day. There really wasn't very much snow, it was mostly icy rain mixed with big snowflakes. It was t... Read more

I love it when I can go to TOPS without feeling intimidated by the scale because I am confident that I lost. This week I lost 2 pounds, and my sticker is still on the ball. That makes a total of 12.4 pounds for January. Most likely I won't ke... Read more

February Self Challenge

Sunday, February 01, 2015      5 comments

While looking over my nutrition reports for January I noticed that I have had some trouble staying within my calorie range. Seems like I'm over the top end more often then not, by anywhere from 100 - 300 calories. I lost 10 pounds last month s... Read more

'Nerd' Glasses

Saturday, January 31, 2015      2 comments

I got new glasses yesterday. I sent my niece a selfie and she said; "You're stylin'. You got nerd glasses. I guess they are popular now. Who knew. I don't pay much attention to what's in style or not, and I don't know anything about choosing g... Read more

TOPS Tuesday 27 Jan 2015

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      2 comments

I lost 3.1 pounds this week so my sticker is still on the ball. That's a total of 10 pounds for January so I'm a little ahead of my goal of 2 pounds a week. I'm sure I won't keep losing at this rate much longer. When my weight loss slows I'll... Read more

Satiety And Deprivation

Monday, January 26, 2015      5 comments

I read a blog entry about satiety being a pleasant sensation of being full without feeling uncomfortable, and that fullness is not comparable to being stuffed. That started the wheels turning and inspired this blog entry. I've noticed from pra... Read more

I didn't feel intimidated by the scale this week since I lost weight according to my home scale. I lost 2.4 pounds for a total of 7.3 since the beginning of the year, and my sticker is still on the ball. I'm very happy with that. Now I have ... Read more

Happy Birthday To Me

Thursday, January 15, 2015      6 comments

It's official. As of today I am eligible for the senior discount at many places. I'm 55 and alive. We went to a local bakery and got a little 6 inch birthday cake. If I'm going to indulge in a piece of cake for my birthday I want it to be wo... Read more

I had a good week. I was happy to see that I lost nearly 3 pounds when I weighed in. With the 2 pounds I lost last week that's a total of 5 pounds this year. Now I just have to get comfy and settle in for the long ride ahead. This time I'm g... Read more

Right Back Where I Started From

Monday, January 05, 2015      4 comments

As the new year drew near I reviewed the past few years while thinking about some things. I looked at my chart and found that I am about the same weight I was at the end of 2013. A new week, a new month, or especially a new year is always a gr... Read more
