Healthy Steps – Week 15-17

No, I haven’t forgotten about this. I just haven’t been home on a Wednesday so I could go to Weight Watchers and get a report! After two weeks and SO much traveling, I was very nervous about today’s weight in. While I had made a concerted effort not to eat my way around Oregon in …

Healthy Steps – Week 13

I lost (a frankly amazing) five pounds this week. While I am thrilled about this, I have to admit to being surprised. While I made some good choices, there were a lot of extremely questionable choices in there. This got me to thinking that a theme that keeps coming up is that weight removal is …

Healthy Steps – Week 12

I gained weight this week. In a perverse way, I am relieved. While I didn’t go off the rails like I did last week, I certainly didn’t snap back into shape. But it wasn’t as bad as it could have been, and frankly for the last two weeks, I’m still down a little. I’m feeling …

Healthy Steps – Week 11

Folks, I went off the rails this week. A combination of hormones, doctors, work stress, pet drama, and heaven only knows what else just go to me. There was pie. There was Easter Candy. There were multiple pizzas. And the Frappachinos are back. When I got on the scale today, I was braced for the …

Healthy Steps – Week 10

Drum roll please! This week I  lost 4.6 pounds, bringing my total to 23.4 pounds removed!!! Second drum roll… I’ve also been off Frappachinos for 3 days. Feeling shaky, but I’m trying.

Healthy Steps – Week 8

This was a challenging week for me; a three-day weekend, a trip, several stressful meetings, and a slow period at work. Any one of these can and did trigger my desire to eat EVERYTHING. I didn’t eat EVERYTHING, but I certainly did eat plenty. Thus, is was a pleasant surprise when I was down .4 …

Healthy Steps – Week 7

This week I was down 3.8 pounds. This makes a total of 20.6 pounds (12.2 of those in this year) removed and… drum roll please… 5% of my starting weight. Weight Watchers doesn’t celebrate this milestone anymore, but I’m going to because I need the validation! So I was thinking this evening about all this …

Healthy Steps – Week 6

In spite of a week that in some ways got the best of me, I am down another 1.6 pounds this week! Frankly, it seems like a miracle because there was A LOT of emotional eating in there. But my goals, small though they were, were there and at the end of the week progress …

Healthy Steps – Week 5

Another 1.2 lost! I’m very pleased with myself! I am also trying to get another project done tonight, so I’m just going to reiterate my goals (still, no change….) with last week’s status in paraenthesis: Tracking – 7 days, 3 in “blue dot” zone (none last week) Have 1 Frapachino in the morning (4 of …
