January in steps, miles and pages

So there must be something about an end of month rush. Last year at the end of February I did a mad dash of exploring NYC and yesterday? More of the same.  I needed 14K for my stretch goal and came home with 16K January, you were amazing. 301,695 steps 124.2 miles walked 85.14 miles… Read More »

Confessions of a Designated Fat Taxi Driver?

aka a two-in-one review because I started and finished two books in the last three days Confessions of a New York Taxi Driver by Eugene Salomon and Jennifer Joyner’s Designated Fat Girl. Two very different subjects but the right level of reading depth I was in the mood for this weekend. I started with Joyner’s… Read More »

Invisalign is the new Weight Watchers?

Over the weekend I was kicking myself for missing my Weight Watchers anniversary, but then on the way home today I realized that I got my Invisalign very close to my WWversary. Now what on earth do braces have to do with WW (which I haven’t followed since Dec ’10 anyway)? I’m down 4 lbs… Read More »

2013: Pretty Well Done

Perfect? No Well done? Absolutely That graph is from when I restarted through today. Was the year perfect? Nope. But I ended 2013 17.3 lbs less than where I started it. That’s good. I was very good with mini goals and quarterly goals this year. Time to look back at 2013 and set some new… Read More »

Chubster: where reading and weight loss intersect

Part of the reason for the increased number of book reviews here is simple, an increase in reading. It’s partially the iPad, partially more down time, but whatever it is, I’ll take it. It has led to this blog being a bit disjointed but, to be honest, it always has been at heart. Anyway, Chubster,… Read More »

Weigh In: April 7 and Accountability Redux

Loss Since March 10: 1.6 lbs Total Loss: 16.8 lbs I could look at that and be disappointed, but I’ve instead chosen to focus on the last two weeks where I got back on track. I was so good through March 10 but then some things popped up and I wasn’t. I still tracked every… Read More »

DietBet: WI 2

WIs for Diet Bet 2 and 3 also known as “I don’t see it in the mirror daily but I definitely see it in the photo.” This also has to be the first time where the first place the weight (or lack thereof) has shown in my face before anywhere else. I haven’t officially won… Read More »

Weigh In: February 17

Weekly Loss: 1.8 lbs Total Loss: 10.6 lbs Ahh the early stage “honeymoon”. I know I won’t lose 10lbs in 3 weeks going forward so I’m definitely going to enjoy it.  I’d love if I could consistently lose almost 2 lbs/week. This week was a bit odd. I’m sick again and haven’t felt hungry. I… Read More »

Days

11 days back OP 11 days tracking 10 days ( 8 work days) without m & ms although I badly wanted some when I was still at work at 9p yesterday and I had no Cheerios or snacks. Yep, this is all day by day. It’s Week 2 so I don’t have the w1 losses,… Read More »

One Week

and not BNL’s One Week which is in my head for some inexplicable reason. I have officially tracked everything for one week. I can’t remember the last time I did that. I’ve tracked about one week with a day or two missing because I didn’t want to face it or some other excuse, but not… Read More »

Confession: Scale Wench

I like “wench” better than “wh0re” but when it comes to the scale, both are true for me. I can weigh myself daily and it doesn’t make me (too) crazy. I’ll even weigh myself multiple times. I just need to know where I am. Non-scale cues don’t work for me especially since I have yet… Read More »
