Just a fraction

Lost .8 this week. Not a gain, but not much in the way of a loss. I’m pretty much spinning my wheels now, so…

1) I have to start tracking points again. And I mean it this time.
2) Treadmill starting Monday. And I mean it this time.
3) The following Monday, starting Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred. I did it once before, several years ago, but I wasn’t doing anything else (like the treadmill or eating well), … Read More »

One pound to the zombies

Scale day, and I lost one pound, which means I lost the pound I gained back last week and I’m back where I was two Fridays ago. I can live with that, I guess.

And, two, I’m going to … Read More »


Doing a mad dash through because I’ll be away from the computer all day, but I lost 1.2 pounds.

Update-less Update

I’m not getting on the scale today. I’m just not. That’s probably wrong/naughty/negative-word-here, but I don’t care today.

I’m not sure which way it would even go. My husband worked a gazillion hours, so we had more than our share of take-out, but I also tried to be good and I did a lot of spring cleaning. It’s not really about the number.

When the “scale” reminder on my phone went off this morning and my first, second and third … Read More »
