Weight Loss 4.0

I feel like I’m in the fourth (and final) stage of my weight loss. That might seem weird since I still have more than 30 pounds to go until I reach my goal, but I’m in a comfortable routine that is working – I don’t feel like I’m looking for “the best way” to lose […]

Diet Bet #2: My weight loss strategy

Yesterday was the initial weigh in for the Diet Bet I’ve organized. We have twenty participants with a pot of $1,000! My husband was the first to join, which was totally shocking. He ended up being the only man. The next three people to join all live near me in Brooklyn, and I thought “Well, […]

Today’s Agenda: “running” edition

So for the second year in a row, I will now start talking about the Disney Princess Half Marathon, and every time I say that I’m “running” it, “running” will be in quotes. Because I couldn’t run 13.1 miles if I were being chased by an ax-wielding maniac. I finished last year with the less-than-impressive […]

Today’s Agenda: on the clock edition

I love Mondays. I get the house to myself once again. Of course, I didn’t realize that the weather program on my phone was set to Celsius. I bundled the kids up like they were summiting Everest and shoved them out the door. So I haven’t been talking about weight loss for a few weeks. […]

Today’s Agenda: totally Monday edition

So I usually don’t mind Mondays at all. Everyone gets the hell out of the house and I can have some peace and quiet and get stuff done. But today has been proving itself to be what other people are referring to when they talk about Monday. I had to wake up at 6:30 to […]

Today’s Agenda: back on track edition

So yesterday I admitted I’d taken about two-and-a-half days off from Slim-Fast and counting calories. All I’m asking of myself this week is to follow the plan for three days, then I’m going to go a bit easy on myself for the holiday weekend. I had my chocolate shake for breakfast, and it tasted great. […]

Week 5 weigh-in: Uh…umm…

Yeah. I took a break. I’m trying to tell myself that instead of going full steam ahead until I snapped and ate an entire pizza, I’m taking a weekend off out of choice so that I can get excited about Slim-Fast again. And let’s face it, this coming long weekend will be time off anyway. […]

Week 4 weigh-in: a little stumble, & a great recipe

So this week I only lost half a pound. That’s not bad itself – down is better than up – but this is where my motivation starts to falter. If I don’t see great results I have a hard time justifying the effort. My eating was fine this week, although I did eat 1,800 calories […]

Carbs, sleep, dieting, & more: my interview with Dr. Oz

A couple weeks ago I had an amazing opportunity to sit down with Dr. Oz and a fabulous group of bloggers. He gave us about forty-five minutes to pick his brain, and pick it we did. The topics were varied, but since I’ve been on a weight-loss kick lately (ten pounds gone!) I was most […]
