No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
So I visited my orthopedic doctor yesterday for a follow up appointment. I had gotten a cortisone shot in my knee two weeks ago to help with the advanced osteoarthritis that was flaring up. Two weeks ago he told me I'd need a knee replacement in the next three years, and come back if it bothers me again and we'd take next steps.
His version of "next steps" is telling me to lose weight. Um, duh. I already knew that. I was 115 pounds when I graduated, I'm 230 pounds now. I know…Continue

so I knew that I was not going to diet on Saturday at dinner and was careful all week so I could splurge.
Had a great anniversary dinner with a bottle of Chianti and veal and risotto for dinner. Going good then as the evening ended my napkin fell to the ground, i went down to pick it up and the zipper on the back of my dress broke. Fortunately I had a jacket on.
I wanted to cry. This would never have happened before. I felt like this was such a FAT thing to happen. All…Continue
Showed a slight gain probably from Chipotle yesterday even though I did the brown rice and left off many of the toppings. Perhaps too much sodium or just too many calories for a lunch. Regardless, it has got me down but not defeated.
I had a fairly light lunch and yogurt for breakfast. Hoping to skip dinner. Need to exercise but life got in the way yesterday as I had to sew up a quick Halloween costume without a pattern.
Saturday is going to be difficult…Continue
I thought I would lose weight camping but the scale stayed the same. I was walking, bike riding, running, etc and no change. At least no gain.
I need to get a pound off by the weekend. We are going to Salvatore's in San Diego to celebrate our anniversary and I don't want to feel guilty about the great food and wine. I want it to be a great Saturday. I won't overindulge but will have a good time. I am already studying the menu and think i will stay away from a full pasta dish to…Continue

I've been forgetting to blog. Oops.
Oh well, nothing much to report. I've been focusing on walking and working on the house. My diet seems to go well until the weekend, but then it goes all to crap because when you are doing a ton of demo, you just want some Gatorade and pizza. LOL Especially since I'm in the south and it's still pretty darn hot down here! I am happy, however, that we have finally finished demo…Continue

I have read that those who blog do well with eliminating pounds. It is certainly worth a try. I have been trying to figure out the right plan for me to use to rid myself of at least 20 pounds. I lost 35 pounds and have managed to keep them off but I have never reached my goal. At this point, I am not even sure what my goal should be. In the meantime, I will lose 20 pounds and see if I feel the need to go lower.

I just wanted to stop by to say hello. I have now been diagnosed with migraines. I've been headache free for a week now, so feeling tons better. But I'm still feeling a little weak and shaky. Idk if something more is going on or if it is just part of it. I've had good days and bad days with food. My appetite has ben down with not feeling well but it also means I'm just grabbing for whatever and not wanting to prep and cook and whenever I don't feel well I gravitate toward comfort…Continue
I was concerned about the weekend due to a lack of control but made it through and did pretty well. Claim Jumper was easy. I knew what i was going to order before I got there (spinach salad) and stuck to it. I did take a couple calamari but literally just a couple.
Now back to the work week where I have control. The only glitch is the pot luck. I made turkey chili. No one knows it is with turkey and I am not going to tell. Turkey, tomatoes, seasoning and pinto beans. …Continue
My FB has been blowing up with debate stuff. Some of it pretty snarky. So, I think it's best if I avoid it for the next couple of days and stay out of the peanut butter. I say that because I've been saying that the two 'leaders' are different halves of one rotten nut.
Anyways, on to the important stuff. I did do my walk yesterday and I'm getting ready to go on one today. I'm feeling a bit tired after a busy day…Continue

Took a little break from blogging, but not tracking. So, it wasn't to blow my diet. Nope. I was sick. For almost 5 days! Terrible head cold and I just felt horrid. I know I went over my diet cals due to the shot of amaretto I sipped each night to try to keep from coughing. It was really the only thing that helped. I would have that after dinner, take my meds, then run the cool mist humidifier. Then I could sleep. :)…Continue
