Disappointment

So after “gaining” 2 bogus pounds … Curt and I went to an A’s/Royals game last night with some friends. I had saved up enough points for a cheeseburger and I was really looking forward to it. I couldn’t find a concession stand selling one! I walked all over the place and no luck. (And […]


Lesson learned

So don’t have sushi the night before your WW weigh-in (WI). In fact, it probably isn’t a good idea to have sushi two days in a row right before your WI. The scale said I gained two pounds. I know that I didn’t actually gain two pounds. It was water weight from the sodium. But […]


26 frickin’ pounds! (2 bags of potatoes and then some)

Just came back from my WW weigh-in (WI) and I lost 1.8 pounds over the week for a total loss of 26 whole pounds! I am so close to my goal. Only 3.6 pounds to go. I have been doing really well with tracking my food, making good food choices and working out 4-6 times […]


Friday afternoon treat

So my friend Sue at work asked me if I wanted to go to Starbucks. I said no. Then I decided to go on their Web site and find the nutritional information for the drink I wanted and to make it manageable. I ordered a tall, nonfat vanilla creme, no whip. The amount of calories […]


Yummy lunch

My friend Alex came over to our hood to hang out and do girl things with me. We had lunch at Oliveto’s. We shared a salad and a delicious pizza. We also tried a really nice wine. (Lunch was my splurge for the week. I have been pretty on track with eating. And this meal […]


2.8

So my weight loss had been on a little hiatus recently. I would lose a little, gain a little, lose a little, etc. It was getting frustrating because I wasn’t going anywhere. I reevaluated and decided I needed to start tracking my food again. (And I recently was overindulging in the food dept. Gotta stop […]


9 pounds to go

I think these last 9 pounds are gonna be a little harder to lose. But I know I can do it. Curt and I are going to Hawaii in about 10 days and I AM gonna have as many drinks with little umbrellas in them as I want. I still will eat whatever I want–but […]


Meet Hungry Girl

Meet Hungry Girl. She maintains a blog all about food. She writes about some cool stuff. I just found her today through my Yahoo! Today I was reading about Little Light Lies, food that says it is light, but it ain’t. She also wrote about healthier options at Fast Food restaurants. She also linked up […]


Holiday Eating Tips

I got this in an e-mail. Enjoy! 1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they’re serving rum balls. 2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. Like fine single-malt […]


Wellness Works

I get e-mails almost daily called Wellness Works. I started getting them while at The Republic and made sure to change my e-mail to continue getting them after I was no longer a Gannettoid. Wellness Works are tips about health, diet, exercise, etc. There are some really good ones that I would like to share. […]
