Juicing… Does It Work? (Part 1)

Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead Recently I watched a movie called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead“.  (You’ll have to put in your name and e-mail address, but if you don’t want to be on their mailing list, you can opt out later.  I haven’t received a bunch of e-mails, if that worries you.)  The movie was a…

Tae Kwon Do

My son has been taking Tae Kwon Do for 10 months now.  For the last four months I’ve been thinking, “That looks like great exercise!”  I’ve wanted to join the class, but didn’t have the nerve.  All these young “whipper snappers” (including my son) are flipping over on the mat, doing 80 push ups, 80 crunches,…

Krill Oil and Weight Loss?

It looks like I might need to rethink supplements.  My body can’t handle fish oils.  I always get an unpleasant reaction.  I hear that krill oil doesn’t have that problem so may try it.  Here are a couple of interesting articles. Can Certain Brain Activity Cause Weight Gain?  Yes, this is a sales company writing…

Confessions of an “Obese” Woman

OK…  I am sitting here at my computer drinking a delicious, home-made mango-kiwi smoothie for lunch.  I happened to have fresh kiwi and frozen mango on hand in the house.  Yum! This morning my husband turned the TV on in our room to watch the news.  I was still laying in bed trying to wake up…

Weight Loss Challenges

OK… I admit that I am back to being about 5 pounds less than when I first started in January.  That means that I’ve gained weight after all that hard work.  (Things have been so busy that I haven’t actually been consistently weighing myself.)  This is SOOOOO frustrating.   I’ve tried all different kinds of things. …

Super Foods For Weight Loss

As of today I should have lost a total of 23.1 pounds.  I’m way behind.  It’s time for a new perspective on foods and dieting. When I decided that I wouldn’t do any more fad diets because all I do is lose and then gain it all back (plus some) every time I try, I…

At Least I Haven’t Gained…

It’s Monday.  I’m supposed to be reporting on my weight loss.  But, once again, there is nothing to report. Have you ever been at the place where you’re completely frustrated… and aggravated?  Maybe that’s a good thing.  Maybe that will be the impetus to do something drastic to get over this plateau.  My conundrum is…

Bobbing Along

I am already far behind “schedule” on my weight loss.  For the past couple of weeks my weight has been bobbing up and down, up and down.  By now I should have lost 18 pounds.  Suffice it to say I haven’t. I will lose this weight.  It’s important to me to be there and be…

Little Decisions

You know… it takes a lot of little decisions to keep going in the right directions as far as weight loss goes.  I’m afraid that my little decisions haven’t been that healthy this week.  So, I’m not sure I’ll be where I want to be on Monday when I weigh myself again. What little decisions…

Weight Loss Report

I was swamped today so didn’t have a chance to get online until tonight.  However, I do have some good news. Two weeks ago I had gained weight instead of losing.  This week I lost the weight that I had gained plus some.  So, here are my numbers: Original Goal:         78.6 pounds to lose Week…
