A possible breakthrough...
Saturday, May 08, 2021      2 comments

186.4 That's a new 3rd number. Is it real? I had to get on and off the scale a couple of times to be sure. Plus, I kind of feel like I cheated a little. My usual habit in the morning is to go to the bathroom, then get on the scal... Read more
Plateau & pulled muscle
Tuesday, May 04, 2021      3 comments

187.8 This is the longest, stupidest plateau! Grrr. I'm frustrated. In addition, I may have pulled my hamstring. It isn't terrible - like I can walk around. But I am constantly aware of it... and super worried that it will interf... Read more
Looking for fitness opportunities
Friday, April 30, 2021      2 comments

188 I just received a mailer for some fitness classes in my little city. There are several that have free trials. I signed up for five free trials - regrettably, they aren't until the end of May, but I think that might be when they plan t... Read more
A marathon, not a sprint
Wednesday, April 28, 2021      1 comments

188.2 A friend just reminded me that it is a marathon, not a sprint (thanks, Cat). Wow. Well, that's true - and should have been obvious to me before. I'm not making changes that would lead to me losing weight faster. So I have to accep... Read more
Another weekend of indulgences
Monday, April 26, 2021      1 comments

188.8 I'm so torn! I want to be able to enjoy the weekend. Having an afternoon drink outside on the patio is nit unreasonable. Saturday's cheese, hummus, sausage, nuts, and crackers might have been a bit over the top. Sunday was a bit m... Read more
Re-losing the same weight.
Friday, April 23, 2021      1 comments

187.2 Well, I've spent this whole week undoing the damage I did over the weekend. Losing the same pounds over and over is so dumb! I'm looking at the weekend again with trepidation. So, how have I done with my goal to not go nuts bre... Read more
Justifications and compromises
Wednesday, April 21, 2021      2 comments

187.8 A couple of days ago, I made a goal: "...I'm going to really make a strident goal of not breaking my fast before dinner on non-flying days this week! That is going to be hard, as I get ravenous (more out of habit and emotional hu... Read more
A non health/weight related story
Tuesday, April 20, 2021      1 comments

188.6 (Yes, it is a non-weight related story, but that's my habit - to start my blogs with the day's weight) Are you ready for a story? I've been trapping mice in our garage. They are pooping on my car. I'm completely grossed out! ... Read more
Free for all Saturday, and not much better Sunday
Monday, April 19, 2021      2 comments

189.6 Oof, that's close to jumping back up into the 190s. However, considering the weekend I just had, I'm gonna call that a success. I mean, sure... I could have been at 186 or something. But a crawfish boil? Our new neighbors invited ... Read more
Ready for a new third number
Friday, April 16, 2021      3 comments

187.4 The past four days have been: 187.4, 187, 187, 187.4. That's pretty darn consistent. So, I suppose that's good. But I've been so good this week, and I really wanted to see that third digit change! Come on 186!!! I enjoyed sil... Read more
Preantepenultimate belt hole... sometimes
Thursday, April 15, 2021      1 comments

187 I love language. I'm only fluent in English, so I'm sure I'm missing out on the nuances in other languages. But when I was first learning to sing in Italian, we were learning on which syllable to put the stress. In Italian, it is oft... Read more
3 weeks...
Tuesday, April 13, 2021      3 comments

187.4 Three weeks ago, I posted that number for the first time. Here I am, back down to it again (and again) after bouncing around. I hate losing the same pounds over and over. So why do I overindulge? That is the big question. I h... Read more
Doing the back and forth dance
Monday, April 12, 2021      2 comments

188.4 I'm definitely not progressing. But hey... dancing around in the upper 180s is better than when I was frustrated at not getting solidly into them. Or, thinking back to my struggles getting into ONEderland, this is way better than th... Read more
Set back a bit
Friday, April 09, 2021      3 comments

189.8 While it is frustrating to be a couple of pounds up, at least I'm still in the 180's. That's good. Yesterday and the day before both included more food than I needed. I need to figure out how to eat better on flying days. I had a ... Read more
Slow progress - disappointment and triumph
Monday, April 05, 2021      3 comments

187.6 I might be blogging just for the sake of blogging today. I'm firmly in the 180s now. That feels great. That's the triumphant part. The disappointing part is that it is going so slow. Yesterday, when I went to my goals sheet to cr... Read more
