Chip of the Day

I came in this morning at 139 but I was actually 137 during the month. I don't exactly want to stand up and cheer for gaining 2 lbs at the end of the month. I was supposed to spring into 135 but it has been a side step process. Maybe I'll get lucky this month. I was planning to reach my goal by summer, which is June 21st but I do have my doubts even though I only have 4 pounds left to reach my goal. I think it should be a 4 pound tummy loss. However at this point I don't care as long as I can finally cross the finish line. I'll worry about fine tuning my problem chubby areas during the summer.

I ran into the trainer at the Y, the one who had put his arms out and called my name out loud to rescue me one day when it looked like I was going to fall off the treadmill. That was my most embarrassing day at the the gym. Anyway, I had to admit to him that his class was too hard and I dreaded attending every Saturday. He said he knew and smiled. I really can't stand defeat so I told him during this summer I will probably come back and do it with ease. However in this case, I will talk the talk but I not going back there any time soon.

I have no other news to report except that I am getting a little tired of these non prescription lense treadmills that don't magnify their settings.

Why do I have to start jogging thinking I am dizzy or have a hang over? How can I tell when I'm getting tired if everything is a blur to start out with? It takes me a good 6 minutes just to get my balance before I increase my speed. Am I the only far-sighted jogger in the world? Nobody jogs with their glasses on.
Wish me luck as unknown forces (besides my cookies, popcorn , and holidays) keep pulling me back from the finishing line.

Chip for the Month

I had to pull myself together to concentrate and stay focused and I did it! I was able to lose 2 pounds and get down to 140. I even got down to a size 5 in jeans. I only have 5 pounds to get to my goal (Praise the Lord) . It wasn't easy though, I did have to give up something to get a downward movement on my scale but still keep the little muscle mass that I had accumulated. For starters... I had to give up bread. It didn't matter if it was white or whole grain , it had to go. I also had to give up the occasional mozzarella cheese stick appetizers while going out to dinner and a Friendly's sundae Sunday treat. I can't remember what else I have to give up? Oh, I had to give up going out to dinner entirely. It was just too hard to figure out how the food was being prepared. Thank God I still have my veggies, wine, and cookies. However I had to cut my wine consumption in half. Half is still good!

I would like to get to 135 before summer begins, June 21st, 7:28 AM . I now have 52 days to go.

Should I bet on me? Wish me luck this month , I will need it. I will keep you posted if there are any earth shattering events before June 1st.

Chip for the Month

I ended March at 142 with only a 2 pound loss for the month. I did lose more weight in March up until today of course; my weigh-in day. The scale said 142 this morning. I kept on waiting for it to go further down 2-3 lbs. and say " April Fool's Day Almond Joy " but it just would not budge from 142...... And so I have 7 pounds left to go. The whole month remains a blur to me so I can't really say what I could have done better. However now that spring is here, I hope to get out a little and enjoy the good weather and keep myself motivated.

My new motto is ... SPRING into 135 which gives me 81 days to accomplish this feat before my summer motto begins.... SUMMER into 135? Hmmm. Doesn't sound as good so I will stick with the spring motto.

Chip for the Month


I lost a total of 7 pounds in February. I am now down to 144. I weighed several times to make sure I wasn't hallucinating. WHY? WHY? WHY? did the weight not come off from where I wished it to come off? The last 9 pounds better come off in the right places. Just in case though, I need to plan a visit to Silicon City for some needed augmentation, tummy tucking, skin tightening, and because of the last 7 pounds --- I need a couple of implants to add to an overall or is that overhaul beauty enhancement. It may be cheaper to just go for the Extreme Body Make Over. AND WHY? WHY? WHY? is there more gym work to do? I only have a mini buff; no real big muscles to speak of and my % of body fat is still on the borderline towards high. Isn't it enough that I had to suffer for several months of changing my eating habits? Hmmm.... Did I change?

Well, I can't say that I have changed my eating habits. I have tried Weight Watchers, Lean Line, Slim Fast, and many other programs. Healthy eating programs don't quite do it for me and a gastric bi-pass would have frustrated me into insanity. My true eating preferences are still somewhere in the frontal lobe of my brain pounding away now and then---translation---
(every damn day).

I have suffered enough! No more! I believe I have met all the qualifications for the lobotomy diet program for long term results. Actually I need the lobotomy for the last 9 pounds. I will Google the lobotomy diet and get back to you in April.

Wishing you a happy and lucky month of March.

Chip for the Month


I could not lose that lousy one pound to get down to 150. I felt like kicking my scale this morning. Actually I think I did. I made such a big effort these last few days. I now sit here wrapped up with Therma Care from muscle spasms in my neck and shoulder blades. I am not even sure where the pain generates from; I am in desperate need of pain killers but I opted for an extra glass of wine instead. I couldn't even open a bag of potato chips tonight without being in pain. That's the thanks I get for doing an extra mile on the treadmill today, ellipticalling till I dropped, and weightlifting till I spasmed out of the damn gym.

And so I have no plan for this month and I am soon to be smacked in the face next week with Valentine's Day dark sweet chocolate everywhere in my site. What's a recovering Godiva Chocolatier supposed to do?

I am just too disgusted to write anymore tonight and my glass needs refilling. I am just going to sit and relax and listen to my music for a few days. See you next month. I'll be writing from the hospital's emergency room or the psycho ward.
