I Just Keep Losing: But That’s a Good Thing
...and the trend continues. Yup, down again last week, by another 1.6 pounds. That brings my total weight loss to 7.6 pounds, well on my way to my goal of 38 pounds. And speaking of trends, doesn't it look great all neatly graphed out like this?You see, I'm all about the recognition and … [Read more...]
Dare I even say it? When the whole raison d'être of my blog, Losing It! was to track my original 50 pound weight loss?Ahem. About that. So yeah. I gained it all back. It took several years and a year and a half of personal crisis, but every last pound has been laid back on and I feel absolutely … [Read more...]
At Last. And on Track.
Whew! After two straight weeks of weight gain, I am back on track...and in a really good way. After last week's weigh-in (which I couldn't even bring myself to write about), when I gained 0.4 pounds (and yes, I know, that's not very much) I was so discouraged. You see, I'd felt so positive about my … [Read more...]
BLTs; or How I Gained 0.2 Pounds Last Week
Yes, it's sad but true: when I weighed in at Weight Watchers on Saturday morning, I had actually put on 0.2 pounds. Argh. But, actually: whatever. I've still lost nearly 9 pounds over three weeks, and any way you slice it, that's not too bad. So I chose to take the long view, and I didn't let the … [Read more...]
So, the daily battle rages in my current weight loss journey. See, the problem is: I really, really dig food. When I'm eating, I love all the wonderful sensations - the textures, the tastes, the temperatures. I love the way I feel after a particularly satisfying meal. And I don't just love eating: I … [Read more...]
Yesterday was my second Weight Watchers meeting (for this go-round, anyway). I knew I had done pretty well: I'd stayed on the program (despite a road trip to Edmonton to visit my BFF), and usually you get a pretty dramatic result the first week. So I had a figure in mind, around four or five pounds, … [Read more...]
Here I Go Again
Last Saturday I joined Weight Watchers (I know, again!). In fact, that's how this blog got started and where the title - Losing It! - came from in the first place. See, way back in May 2006 I joined Weight Watchers and started blogging about it. I faithfully chronicled my weight loss journey, … [Read more...]
Oh, I’m Losing It, All Right!
First things first: I lost 0.6 pounds last week, which puts me under 180 lbs, which is where I wanted to be. Well, if you want to get technical, I weigh 179.6 which would actually be 180 if you were rounding up, but I (and Weight Watchers, incidentally) am not, so there. So, whew, that's just over 7 … [Read more...]
