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...

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.

Feeling panicky and irritable the last couple of days. Short tempered. I am not sure if this is PMS or other hormone rollercoastering or me not taking my medication regularly enough.

Watched Will at a soccer game yesterday. I probably shouldn't do that - because it breaks my heart. With soccer, he is a harder ...

I have to correct myself - my run/walk wasn't 120 minutes, it was 1 hour 20 minutes. :) Still good, but not 120 minutes good.

Feeling very off today - woke up with a weird stomach thing at midnight and couldn't fall back asleep until 3ish. Not sure what was going on - it probably colored my whole day. I've been snippy and self-pitying.

Had beef pho for lunch. I love pho. And aside from the sodium its not that bad in terms of restaurant food.

Work has been pretty slow lately - enou...

Ran 120 minutes yesterday - by "run" I mean 1 minute run, 1 walk. Ripple came with, and it was so nice - a treat really to have the time and mental space to do something like that. My knees and hips were sore yesterday but not this morning.

Down 1.2 measly lbs after a 9 day holding pattern. Its definitely better than nothing but OMG, trying to lose weigh in my 40s is a whole new ballgame.

Apparently the glycemic index is bogus? I haven't ever really used it, but interesting h...
