May 28, 2014                                                                            Weight  209lbs.

     Well, here I go again.  For the umpteenth time.  Getting serious about my weight.  It's so depressing and what's worse, I can't blame it on anyone but myself.  I've gotten on and off the wagon so many times the last two years or so, it's discouraging.

     Enough bellyaching. As the school year winds down, I am planning on spending more time at the gym and planning good, healthy meals.  For awhile I tried a combination of Paleo and gluten free eating.  Yeah, that lasted about a week.  I don't know which direction to go in. I was determined to not buy or eat any Weight Watchers meals as they're loaded with preservatives.  But, they're so damned convenient.  So, this week I am back on eating them.  They taste good and are low in calories.

     So, what I've decided is to eat as "clean" as possible but not to be too rigid.  I am also planning on going back to counting calories again.  That seemed to work the best for me.  I'm resisting that as it's a gigantic pain in the neck, among other places.


  1. Jen, So happy to have you back in the groove. I think your plan is fabulous. Keep it as simple as you need to, Jen and feel great about it because you're headed in a very positive direction. The calorie counting thing--yes, I love it--it does take some effort...BUT--The My Fitness Pal app and website makes it much easier, I promise!! Their database is simply incredible...I've entered entire meals before in less than a minute--some within seconds...It's a fabulous tool if you're not already using it. Welcome back!

  2. Jen, was thinking about you today and thought I would drop by and see how you're doing. I hope all is well. Take care--My best, Sean
