yippee!!!!

Breakthrough – 20

+2 … After the 20 milestone, it was another 1.5 weeks for an additional 2. Still great progress. I have 20 more to go to hit my easy goal. After that, I’ll evaluate for another 10. At last! I’ve hit the 20 pound weight loss milestone. It has taken 2 weeks for my scale to […] Read more…

what a buzzkill before a victory

On losing 18 pounds and the vanity of it all.

The excitement continues! goodbye to 18. Just for context, below is an image of 10 pounds of butter. Double it (almost). ACK! Let’s just say my knees are feeling a lot better these days! I’m feeling a bit better this week as well, not as cranky (I’m sure my colleagues at work are thankful). My […] Read more…

From Plateaus to Valleys

You’ll often hear that weight loss is not linear; the typical weight loss path, if you were to graph it out, is a jagged little line that looks more like an EKG than slanted line. (FYI: I’m at 18-pound loss as of Saturday, Jan 31. Yippee! that’s 18 pounds in 28 days. I’m almost 50% […] Read more…

A pretty plateau and not the kind I'm experiencing :)

Plateaus

Today’s motivation: “If changing our bodies was easy, then everyone would be walking around with a six-pack.” Having undertaken weight loss regimens many times, I know the familiar frustration of the weight loss plateau. It sucks, people. I’m not overly surprised at it with the current scheme that I’m on, my body is simply not […] Read more…

it's a little less intimidating

24 Days and Counting

Another update: Day 24 – totally bizarre (but not so bizarre) bump in the road of the total fast diet (and by total, it is medically supervised with protein shakes, soups and an occasional 150 or less calorie protein bar) — my weight actually swung up 3 pounds in one day. The only change in […] Read more…

looks yummy. taste....yummy-esque

Massive Detox: Update

Day 9: Some interesting things: I’m getting cold more easily. Keeping sweaters around. This is quite odd because I’m always running too hot. Since my body isn’t burning food for fuel, I suppose it’s just not heating up as much I didn’t have a great day today. My tummy rebelled violently at around 1 pm. […] Read more…

Visions of Sugarplums (well, fashion, actually)

Pinterest is chock full of yummy things: food, desserts, fashion, houses, etc. Funny that now that I’m on a serious not-eating regimen, the food items look even more delicious I’m turning my attention to a healthier inspiration – fashion I’d like to wear (or at least envision within the realm of possibility) – when this […] Read more…

yum yum. 10 weeks of "food"

The Adventure Begins … UCLA RFO Program

DAY 1 FOLLOW UP: I’m going to do my follow up posts on this original post so as not to crowd my blog with this one slice of my life in early 2015. I wasn’t really hungry on my first day until late at night. I found it a bit hard to fall asleep b/c […] Read more…

Christmas Deliciousness

The holidays are synonymous with good food and wine. I love it. This year, I tried many many recipes from Food52, every single one was fabulous. I nominate Food52 for the best recipe website going. For baking, my favorites are Joy the Baker, Sweetapolita, and Sprinklebakes. For inspiration, I love David Lebovitz and the ubiquitous […] Read more…
