LYNNABEL's CalorieKing Blog

In childhood and high school I was always a healthy weight. After graduating from college, my weight fluctuated (mostly in the up-direction). I got to an all time high of 158 in 2000, and joined weight watchers (the in-home version - I've always been private about my weight) and lost about 28 pounds. I was able to maintain that loss through several major live challenges, but at the 28th major issue to hit me in the space of 1 year (a slight exaggeration), the pounds came back along with loneline...

I can't seem to get my act together foodwise. I have been doing okay with exercise. Not great, but okay (2-3 times per week). I just can't seem to reign in my eating, though. I know it has to do with this weird schedule and juggling bar study with work, life, etc. but that doesn't account for it completely since I was able (at times) to manage my eating during law school. I just can't figure out what to do to keep myself from indulging. For example, we went out to eat tonight which we do very ra...

In sort of a weird place - half glad that serious bar prep study is beginning and half very anxious. Feel bloated and yucky after too much holiday food and drink. Time to reign it in. Enjoyed being with my father on his 70th birthday. Wanted to enjoy having Xmas at home with just S and kids, but moods (not mine) seemed to get in the way. A bit of a let down. Kids have 17 days off for the holidays which is way too much without being able to spend a lot of it outside. Okay - got the griping off my...

First day back at work.

Had a wonderful time in Punta Cana with my sister - we were insanely lazy and didn't leave the resort. And practically didn't leave the pool and beach. It was perfect. I could have used another day or two.

Some damage weight-wise. Back up about 1.5 lbs, but not too bad considering. I have work trip tomorrow through Thurs to San Diego, and I know the food will be good. But, I'll do my best to keep it reasonable, and then I will continue my push to get back close...

Woot! Woot! Leave tomorrow for Sisters Trip!!

And, down 2.2 lbs this morning!! This time around, my weight is staying exactly the same for 10-14 days, then dropping, and then staying at the new weight for 10-14 days. At least that has happened the last few drops. I do prefer predictability, so I can live with this. I have reduced my calories pretty low (~1100 or less), which confirms my theory that my BMR is low. Its no fun, but it is working.
