Weight Loss Blogs – The Good and The Awesome!

I love me a good blog on weight loss. Especially if it doens’t contain a bunch of self-hatred and loathing. I thought I’d list a few of the blogs that I personally like for diet, exercise, and overall health. Some of these deal more with excercise (and specifically the Insanity workout) but most of them…

Skinny In The Head

I swear I am. Skinny in the head, that is. I mean, I am a fat person who lives the active life of a person half my size. I wake up at the butt crack of dawn every morning and hit the ground running. I don’t have children but I make coffee, make my lunch,…

Gym – Wee – Weight Watchers – Me

Oh Bloggy, how I have neglected you! Let’s get back to basics you and me! So, I recently joined a gym here in town. It’s a state-of-the-art health and fitness center that has a great gym area, a pool, raquetball courts, fitness rooms, and loads of classes. I have been going with some folks from…

New Lows in Losses!

I joined a Weight Watchers meeting here at work and had my second weigh in today. I am down to 285! I started this journey last March at 333 so I am down almost 50 pounds. Yes, the weight loss has been super slow. It’s sometimes hard to gauge how long it’s supposed to take…

Inspiration

I’ve been dragging a foot for a while…as in, “not totally off the wagon but dangling a foot off and letting it bump the stones” for a few months now. Lack of exercise and letting bad eating habits creep back up have let me gain back 6 pounds. I resolved on New Year’s Eve to…

Gaining Sucks!!!

EEK! I just did my weekly weigh in and noted a 2-pound gain this week. Now would be a prime time for me to do some self-loathing and then go on a massive binge but I wont do that because I expected the gain. This week was a week of eating out too many times,…

The Language of Diets

Have you ever heard someone say, “I can’t, I’m on a diet.”? This usually happens as someone is either refusing dessert or turning down one of those ultra-sweet umbrella drinks at a swanky bar. For so few words, it carries so much weight (literally!). For instance, when I hear someone say, “I can’t, I’m on…

Girl Scout Cookies = Mega Calories

It’s that time of year again! Be prepared for throngs of Girl Scouts and their parents to besiege you at work, at church and even the entryway at Wal-Mart with promises of cookie goodness for only $4 a box! (Or are they more now? Seems like every time I buy a box, they’ve gone up…
