Thursday, March 08, 2007      0 comments

Decided to give this a try today. I have kept a journal for many years, recording not only the events of the day, but my weight, food eaten, blood pressure and the time I take my vitamins. This is the first time I've ever thought about writing... Read more
New month - Hopefully be near goal by the end of this month!

The weight is very slow coming off. Today I took a long hard look at myself and went into SP and changed my weight loss goal from 2 pounds to 1 pound per week. That is the best I've been able to do and some weeks I don't even lose the one poun... Read more

Weighed yesterday and old fat turtle hadn't move. Fortunately, his sidekick, Mr. Tapemeasure, did! That is the most important thing to me! To firm up this spare tire around my waist and have my clothes fitting better! Just read a SP emai... Read more

I'm finally getting the hang of following the menu and tracking my nutrition. At first glance, I thought it was terribly boring and something I could just not do. I spent the first month on SP going on the boards, reading the motivational arti... Read more

I am feeling so much better since I started using the Nutrition Tracker and taking SP suggestions on amount of food intake and proper nutrition. I particularly enjoy the Motivation articles I receive from SP. I realize that my clothes ... Read more

Today - as everyday - I dutifully listed all that I've planned to eat today. Then, when I looked at the numbers, I realized some of the nutritional values that are listed are probably higher than what I am actually consuming. Although we p... Read more

Lost two more pounds this past week. The wonderful part of it is that I lost a full inch off my waist! I've been really faithful to the Low Carb diet, eating mostly fresh vegetables, berries, beef or chicken salads using Salsa as my salad dres... Read more
Back to Low Carb

I've been trying to follow the Spark People diet plan and watch the carbs. This is not working for me. SP wants me to eat between 1200 - 1500 calories today and Carbs between 125 - 135 g. Sometimes I think I will NEVER learn! I cannot eat 1... Read more
Another Day!

Had a Red Hat luncheon scheduled at a Mexican Food resturant for day and was dreading it. I've been trying to figure out what I could have that would be low carb. It is a new resturant, so don't know if they have Chile Rellano's as a side orde... Read more

Only lost one pound this week. Gotta do better than that if I'm going to make the March 8 deadline I have set! The theory is 2 pounds a week. Weather has been nice the last couple of days (up to 40 degrees mid-day) so I've been able to do... Read more

I've been hung at 150 for almost a week now. I'm only weighing in once a week and tomorrow will be my weigh in day! DARN! I think I am throwing too many carbs into my system trying to follow the Nutrition tracker when I know from experience t... Read more
An example of how not to handle grief

My neighbor called last night and her husband had just passed away. This has been a thirty year friendship, first as young parents and now as old grandparents. My immediate reaction after the tears was to stuff carbs in my face as fast as ... Read more

Got my wish for some outdoor exercise! 7 inches of heavy snow fell yesterday. Since we live on a corner lot, my DH and I split the chore - I shovel the front half, he takes the back. Beautiful snow! I love to see it! If we can get ... Read more
