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...

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.

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. I'm going to be consistent w/ the pills and see if that helps. I am so looking forward to my trip with Stephie, but maybe I am anxious about it as well? I don't think so, but perhaps.

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...
