Vacations aren’t such a bad thing.

So, I went on my Cancun trip, and stuck to my plan. I would start my day with my strict rule to only two cups of coffee with creamer. It would have been too easy to allow that third cup and begin the day going off plan. But I kept the long term goal in […]

Oh yeah!

Just a quickie. I am busy with wrapping up all the last minute details before we leave for Cancun on Saturday, so I figured I’d give a quick update. I weighed in tonight and was down another 3.6 lbs. Oh yeah, that’s 4 lbs in the last two weeks. I love when things work as […]

We shall see…

I managed to get in another 4 hour hike this past weekend, and plenty of other movement to add up to 40 AP’s. Feels very good to move. You forget that when you’re sedientary and packing on pounds. Its such a mood enhancer and just works so well at keeping all the joints oiled and […]

Still droppin…

I’m so grateful that my body has finally leveled out and is giving me the losses that I’ve been working towards. Lost another 3.2 today, yahoo! I’m still working at the exercise and tracking my food. I do not eat my earned access points and I try to work out into the 30-40 per week […]

Discipline equals reward

Where do I start? Ok, ok, I’ll start with the news that has me in a great mood. The weigh-in scale read 5 whole pounds down. I knew I’d worked hard and practiced excellent eating habits, so I knew it was just a matter of time before my body figured out it was time to […]

Just a quick check-in

Since I didn’t have a weigh-in today due to the Spring Break break, I figured I’d stay true to my weekly committment to check in here. I’ve been staying on track. I managed to have about 20 weekly points and 47 activity points left over for the week when I started new this morning. No expectation, […]

Short and sweet

The journey continues… When motivation wanes, then your determination must take the wheel. I guess I could say I’m still pretty determined. I have been tracking every bite that goes into my mouth, and staying well within my allotted points. I have been taking food pleasures and using most of my weekly points. I have […]

It’s about the journey, not the destination.

Well, I survived my first Zumba class ever. It was actually kind of fun, now granted I am a sloppy mess when it comes to the steps, but I was moving and laughing. Having a good time while exercising can’t be all that bad. I walked a total of 4 hours this past week with […]

Leaps and bounds

After last week’s disappointment, I went into this week’s meeting without expectation because I knew it could be ugly. Our topic last week was to “move more,” and since I’ve already been moving I decided I would challenge myself to move each day, instead a few days a week, and to step it up. So […]

Simple pleasures!

I was on a pity train in the last post, so I decided that its best not only to post when I’m elated from weight loss, or pissed off at the scale, but at other highs and lows of my life. What I find interesting is I posted about my weight loss disappointments literally two years ago. […]
