Successfully Losing Weight in Your Forties

January 24, 2009

One of the things that concerns me about my weight loss journey is my age and the impact it has on my being successful. When I was young it seemed so easy to lose weight when I needed to. As I have hit my forties it seems to be so much more difficult. Not that [...]


On Tour With a Weight Loss Rock Star

January 22, 2009

I’m pleased to be taking part in a virtual blog tour being conducted by Jennette Fulda, author of Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir. You may know her as PastaQueen. For those of you who have been living in a cave (or a pantry closet?) Jennette has an amazing and touching story to tell, having lost half [...]


The Demise of a Weight Loss Blog

January 18, 2009

While it gives me great joy to celebrate new weight loss bloggers it pains me to think that some of them “won’t make it.” At some point in their journey they will stumble and for whatever reason their new blog will become at best a burden, at worst a lasting testament to their failure (looking [...]


Do You Binge Eat Like Me?

January 16, 2009

photo credit: NathanaelB I’m wondering if I binge eat like others do. When I hear about binging I read stories of people eating a gallon of ice cream in one sitting, a whole pizza or an entire box of oreos. Other than the pizza (who hasn’t indulged in an entire pizza?) I don’t think I [...]


Beware Phony Weight Loss Blogs

January 14, 2009

I was very careful when I wrote my post on new weight loss bloggers to include only “real” people with interesting stories to tell about their weight loss or fitness journey. That’s because, in case you have not noticed, there has been a plethora of blogs (or more correctly websites purporting to be blogs) being [...]


I’m Becoming a Sweater Guy

January 11, 2009

I’ve never really been one to wear sweaters. I’m not sure if that is because I am usually warm or because I have bad memories of itchy wool sweaters from when I was a kid, but no matter what the reason the number of sweaters hanging in my closet has been stuck at two for [...]


Celebrating New Weight Loss Bloggers

January 4, 2009

The last few months of the year is prime time for starting a new weight loss blog. I’ve decided to highlight the real ones I have found recently. I say real, because unfortunately there has been a rash of fake ones lately. I’m quite confident the blogs represented here are real people with real and [...]


An Hour on the Treadmill

January 3, 2009

One of the things I know I have to do to be successful with losing weight this year is to put more time on the treadmill. But it’s so darn boring! Workout music helps, but if you are going to run for at least an hour like I want to start doing, then you need [...]
