A Diet Blog Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

October 31, 2007

In his post titled Knights of the Round Bottoms, Iron-Man from Lose Weight Now! asks the question: Is it mere coincidence, or does blogging help people lose weight? I am surely no expert, having “only” lost 21 pounds over 3 months of blogging, but I have to answer with a definite “YES.”  I’m sure some of [...]


This Is How It Happens

October 30, 2007

Most, if not all, of my readers are or have been in a battle with food.  What I am about to describe will no doubt elicit a simple “well duh, that happens to me all the time” response.  Still, it’s important for me to write, for myself if nobody else. Here is how easily a [...]

October 28, 2007

Diet starting weight: 295 Week starting weight: 275 Today’s weight: 274 Week weight loss: 1 lb Total weight lost: 21 lbs It certainly feels good to be able to post a loss again, but I’m still not down to where I was a couple of weeks ago which is a little disappointing.  Still, a loss is a [...]

Awhile back I added a few sections to my sidebar pertaining to comments that I wanted to point out.  While the focus of this blog is my journey to a healthier me I will also from time to time include posts like this where I am learning, and sharing, about the mechanics of blogging. First, I [...]


A Great Visit to the Doctor

October 26, 2007

I had my annual physical yesterday.  I had my last one in May, 2006 but I procrastinated setting this one up.  By the time I got around to it this summer I learned I would have to wait until October until my doctor had an opening.  Which means when I scheduled it I was not [...]


That Devil the Mini-Bar

October 25, 2007

As you probably know, a mini-bar is a small, private refrigerator often found in western-style hotel rooms.  Stocked with food and beverage they offer convenience at a hefty price. The hotel I normally stay in is low-frills and does not have a mini-bar.  That’s a good thing.  Not because I am worried about the price, but [...]


I’m Seeing Some Signs of Success

October 24, 2007

Despite my bad week last week, I actually did have some good news. Belts I have a dozen or so belts in my closet but only one that I wear regularly.  This one was an emergency purchase in Chicago a few months ago when I managed to break my belt buckle getting dressed in the [...]


Soccer Is Good For You

October 23, 2007

I didn’t need to read this study to know that soccer is a better workout than jogging.  I played soccer for about a dozen years growing up and it always kept me in good shape.  Last night, to celebrate the end of my son’s 5th & 6th grade fall soccer season, we had a parent/kid [...]


An Early Halloween

October 22, 2007

I woke up this morning feeling like crap because last night I indulged in more than my share of sweets. Feeling this way was a big wake-up call for me because I haven’t felt like this in the morning since I started my weight loss program on August 1st. When I eat sugary foods late [...]
