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

Just Call me The Calorie Countessa

Friday, September 05, 2014      2 comments

I noticed a featured team on Spark People the other day, Calorie Counters 'R Us. It looked like a great team for me since I'm all about counting calories so I joined the team. It's simply a numbers game, calories in versus calories out. There... Read more

My Game Plan

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      3 comments

Some friends at my TOPS chapter asked what I've been doing since August was such a good month for me, so, here's my game plan. 1) I am exercising portion control. Since my eyes are bigger than my stomach what looks like 1/2 a cup of mash... Read more

I lost a whopping 5 pounds this week. Whoo hoo! We started a new Stay On The Ball Challenge since we had a winner last week. I got kicked off the ball over a measly 1/4 pound. I've no intention of letting that happen again. Game on! ... Read more

I Can't Please Everyone

Monday, September 01, 2014      3 comments

We had a small family get together for Labor Day. It's not easy doing family dinners when I'm not eating quite the same as everyone else. Today was pretty good. We had very lean steak cooked outside on the grill, and smallish baked potatoes. ... Read more

Thursday, August 28, 2014      2 comments

I gained a measly 1/4 pound this week. I guess that's not too bad after last weekends blowup. So, needless to say, my sticker came off the ball. There were two other stickers left on the ball and one of those members had a gain this week so t... Read more

Weekend Blow-up

Monday, August 25, 2014      3 comments

This weekend was awful. It started on Thursday. I helped all day with our TOPS garage sale. Someone brought a box of donuts and I ate one. We ordered pizza for lunch, smaller 10" size, and I had 3 pieces of that. After we closed the garage ... Read more

This week was our first weigh-in for our stay on the ball contest. I only lost 1/2 a pound, but every little bit counts. It's weird because on my home scale I lost another 2 pounds this week. I weigh first thing in the morning in my nightgown.... Read more

Fearfully And Wonderfully Made

Tuesday, August 19, 2014      2 comments

Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well. I was thinking about this scripture last night while I was laying in bed before I sleep. My body trul... Read more

I feel like I'm in a confession booth right now. Forgive me for gluttony, for I ate too much yesterday. I've been craving a crunchy savory snack lately. There was an unopened box of Brown Rice Triscuits in the kitchen, Tomato Basil flavor, Yu... Read more

Stay On The Ball

Friday, August 15, 2014      3 comments

We started a new contest at our TOPS meeting this week. It came from the Aug/Sept issue of TOPS News. Each member who wants to participate writes their name on a sticker that is put on a ball. We are using a beach ball since it's still summer... Read more
