Half way through January

Saturday, January 18th 2014

Well, a definite up and down week. Lots of stress and, I admit, a little stress eating. But I've gotten my eating between meals somewhat under control (except for the evenings but I had pretty much globalized it to the whole darn day).

Sometimes you have to shake things up so I've decided to go a little more high protein, high fiber and to avoid bread for a while. I'm not saying, "Bread! Never!" but for now I'm not eating it on a daily basis.

The water thing is very impo...

I'm baaaccck!

Thursday, January 2nd 2014

Like so many, I am back here again.

I was feeling bummed because I could tell I was putting on weight--I can see it on my torso. Just could not adhere to structures that had helped me get this far.

Inch by inch. I'm losing it.

So here's the deal. I'm going to try to do my food diary.

And I'm going to try to ask myself: Why do you want to eat? I know the answers. All too often it's boredom. It's not hunger.

So to ask the question. Drink water. Delay...

The middle of October

Thursday, October 14th 2010

Well, about this time last year, I was close to goal but not there and it took a while to get down. I think my official "anniversary" is in late November. But I've been maintaining. Sometimes maintaining is effortless and some times it is not. Sometimes it is easy to weight twice weekly; sometimes I avoid it.

Just recently, I was in my yellow zone and staying there more than I wanted to. So this week I returned to logging. I wrote that it shows you the problems like a well li...
