Weekly Loss: 2.6 lbs
Total Loss: 15.2 lbs
Honestly, I’m losing in the most bizarre places. Not remotely complaining, but it’s weird to lose in my face and legs first. Over all, thrilled with progress since I recommitted and this is the longest (42 days since January 28) that I’ve been focused since I started this journey. I have tracked every morsel I put in my mouth since then and it hasn’t felt like a chore at all. I will finish it this year. I am “All In”, no doubt inspired by this weekend’s reading. Speaking of this weekend …

11 days back OP
11 days tracking
10 days ( 8 work days) without m & ms although I badly wanted some when I was still at work at 9p yesterday and I had no Cheerios or snacks.
Yep, this is all day by day.
It’s Week 2 so I don’t have the w1 losses, but I’m not using that as an excuse to say “oh fuck it” as in “I’m not losing so I might as well not try”. Even the day that I fell into the bag of candy, I didn’t let it turn into days… and I . . . → Keep Going: Days
and not BNL’s One Week which is in my head for some inexplicable reason.
I have officially tracked everything for one week. I can’t remember the last time I did that. I’ve tracked about one week with a day or two missing because I didn’t want to face it or some other excuse, but not this time. I really think my head is finally back in the right place to finish this.
and maybe it’s no coincidence that I’m down 6.2 this week. Hello water weight but I’ll take it.

As I mentioned, eating out is a stressor for me. Has been since 2010 and honestly, probably always will be. I didn’t bail on lunch Friday because I needed to get out. I used a strategy that a couple of friends mentioned and I’ve used in the past – pre plan. Well, sort of. I was all set that I wanted salmon which a) I love b) I can’t cook. But when we got the menu the only salmon they had on it was char-grill Salmon, organic beets, potatoes, saffron yogurt. The salmon is fine – the other three, not . . . → Keep Going: eating out, weekends and sick, oh my
Had “coffee” scheduled with a colleague in the industry tonight and I was anxious. Not about seeing her as she’s good fun, but smart choices at dinner. I know there are healthier options at Starbucks but I can’t stand the taste of “skinny” drinks as I much prefer soy milk. Well coffee turned into “drinks” and I relaxed when I had an idea of their menu. Or so I thought. At least I could get an idea of the choices from Yelp.
Turns out we were both “watching what we’re eating” (aka every other woman in NYC) and we split . . . → Keep Going: LoseIt while eating out
If you’re tired of starting over, stop giving up
No, blogging isn’t going to be a daily thing. But this is really resonating with me today. I made a promise to my Hivers that I’m not going to have anymore Day 1s. Today is Day 2. Both tracked, including when I fell into the Cheerios. And the can of soup that was completely vile. Loathe to say I’ve lost “weight” as it’s really just water from adventures in a chili dip and russian coffee cake this weekend, but it’s a lower number.

that’s the new name of my game. I have maintaining down to a science. This year, I’m going to get the rest of my way to goal. Here are some small and big picture things I’m doing to achieve this accountability:
Blog. Yeah, we’ll see how that goes. But when I was losing, I was blogging. So we’re going to try it again On the writing theme, I’m tracking. I was a master at tracking way back when and it’s time to go back. I don’t see what my road block is here. I face the foods when I see . . . → Keep Going: Accountability
I have no idea. Blogging and I don’t seem to get along. But I’m officially back OP. Maybe. I’m still on the yo-yo that I was in October. On the plus side, I haven’t gained back a lot of weight despite some atrocious food choices. On the down side? I haven’t lost anything either.
I think I’ve found some of the motivation I had last Spring which is a good thing. Now I’m trying to harness it. Step 1? Go back to the tracking I did. Not just food tracking but weight tracking. And accountability. I still weight myself daily . . . → Keep Going: Am I back?
really tried to get back on track with tracking from Monday this week. Didn’t track Christmas weekend so much for not wanting to see what I ate so much as tracking the amounts would be hard (i.e two olives, one slice of prosciutto, some italian wedding soup). So I vowed to start over on Monday and have been pretty good. My neuroses are still there though.
I used to see it most with bacon. I didn’t like the points for 3 slices so I’d change it to 2 as if that would matter to my body. As if the . . . → Keep Going: my tracking is insane
