While I generally don’t buy into concepts such as “starvation mode” and the like, it has become undeniably apparent to me that my diet is no longer working. From the endless Googling and forum lurking I have been doing, I am fairly confident that I have this problem narrowed down to the fact that I [...]
So… I just got back from spending a week on the beach during my family vacation. I knew I was eating too much, but my general line of thought was “Ehh, I have lost 60 pounds already, if I gain a couple back I can re-lose them easily enough.” So I ate, and ate, and [...]
Calorie counting has become easily one of my favorite weight loss methods, pure and simply because it works. It is just simple math, and, while my test scores may disagree, I really can handle simple math. Losing weight is just a matter of making sure that you are keeping the energy equation off balance in [...]
I have completed my first week back after my one week break. I was expecting it to be a lot worse than it really was. I think I kind of psyched myself out because week six went so badly, since I was getting sick but didn’t realize it yet. Doing week seven with a normal [...]

Well folks, I have a confession to make. I completely blew it this weekend. I was doing fantastic with my diet and exercise routine, I felt great, and I was finally starting to drop some weight. …And then I went on vacation and ate everything in sight.
Day 28 / Week 4 / Month [...]
I’m starting to get very, very frustrated with my lack of weight loss. I am exercising more than I have in quite a while, I am keeping close track of my calories, I am choosing healthier foods over less wise options… and yet, nothing seems to be happening. My gut is as flabby and awful [...]
Today is my official “off day,” rounding out week 3 of Insanity.
