I still haven't figured out what I want my goals to be. I know roughly what weight I want to get down to, but it's not a firm number, yet. I'm lower than I've been in years, so even though I've gone back up a little, it's staying within a 5 lb r... Read more

I mentioned earlier that I was re-starting the Spark Coach. Today's video was about motivation and the very first thing she said was to NOT weigh yourself every day because it's de-motivating when the scale doesn't move. It doesn't work tha... Read more

Today is my brother's birthday. He's 58 today. I promised a restaurant/food review. It wasn't what I was expecting, but I ate it anyway. There was way too much, but I ate it anyway. Too much protein, not enough veg. The breakfast burrito wa... Read more

Real Life (TM) got in my face for a while. I think things are mostly back to normal (for me, that is) so it's time to climb back on that horse. I will step on the self-logging (Aria) scale in the morning and try not to cringe. I will pack tomorr... Read more

I got to enjoy it for over 25 years, but it flat-out will not fit in the new house. The joys of down-sizing means it's not the only thing that won't... Read more

Rainy here today, but mid-40s and no wind, so not too bad. Got more over to the new house, took some stuff over to the Goodwill, arranged to sell my phone booth (no room for it in the new house), and arranged to have someone come get my grandfat... Read more

Weight-y matters

This morning I was reading a friend's blog about the scale and tracking the numbers - you need to pay attention to trends, not just compare today with your goal. I weigh every morning, but I don't make my own graph because I also use anothe... Read more
