there or almost there

Saturday, October 10th 2009

When I weighed on Friday, my weight was 147 1/4. Just shy of my final goal. However, I'm still dealing with a voracious appetite and I've just been snacky, for weeks it seems. I don't know if it's weather/change of seasons, hormonal (I quit my estrogen gel to cut monthly costs), a phase or just that my weight goal may be at the low end of sustainability for me.

At any rate, unless I really get crazy and start to go majorly backwards (heaven forbid and after tonight's Vietnamese feast/fes...

getting close but not close enough blues

Sunday, September 6th 2009

well, I am kind of hanging at just under 155 +/-. I want to get back on the road and get it under 150 and then on to 147. But it's just not time yet. I'm tired of 1200 calories, which means you have to be pretty intentional about eating your calories without much extra--even a large piece of fruit can seem to put a wrinkle in a plan. I have what DH calls free floating anxiety--about exercise as we go into fall and winter, about maintaining, about just preserving my current success. Sigh.

The last "final" goal

Wednesday, August 26th 2009

I weighed in at 154.75 the other day with a final goal of 155. I went ahead and re-set my final goal to 147. Previously, I had set a goal of 160 because when I started at 194 that seemed like a good place to start. It got me just in to an acceptable BMI range. And I've dieted down before and "just couldn't stand it" to do what I had to do to stay that low. And 147 may be "too low". After all I'm a 52 year old peri-menopausal woman. But I'll try it. I'll know if it's n...

Reflections on what I can do that I couldn't do 4 months ago

Friday, August 21st 2009

I've been on CK now about 4 months; just a bit more than 4 months. This week I attended two spinning classes. I didn't do a fabulous job. I basically rode the bike, learned the moves and sweated. I didn't do a lot of manipulation of the levels of effort. But I didn't do a lot of extra sitting on the seat. And it didn't take sheer gutting it out to last the class--tonights was ridiculously long--over an hour. I didn't perform at a high level but I performed. Sweated like a pig.

And I...

a nice weekend

Sunday, August 16th 2009

Well, it's been a weekend. My son starts school this Wednesday and he goes to a school where they were uniforms. BUT he's a Senior, so I was pretty cheap and didn't pay for any more stuff than necessary. But it was a trip to the city for us. We did some eating at Texas Roadhouse, which is just your typical tasty but way too large of servings. But I think I'm coping with the 1200 calories. And I did a great bike ride. Kansas can have some wind and so it seems like mother nature is turning ...
