I'm such a backslider. The signs are all there besides just the scale number. I'm starting to feel like I did when I started this journey--like sh*t. To elaborate: my arms are getting chubbly-wubbly as is the rest of me.

The one big GOOD thing is that I've maintained my aerobic fitness (fragile as it may be at this point). I was horribly unfit when I started. I know there's always room for improvement in this area for me. My minimum jogging outing for this week is up to 21 min for the first time in awhile. Other than that it's been business as usual. A drastic change::result is in order!

Cheers to you all!

Hi biscottibody,

What can I say except "same here". I have really let things slide lately. And just like you I feel terrible and completely out of control, like all I can do is just stand by and watch as the situation deteriorates yet further. But I also have that one major consolation which is that I have kept up my running (okay, "jogging"!). It is really quite impressive because back in the day I found it so much easier to diet than to exercise. I couldn't understand how some people could say the reverse.

Let's make a pact with each other not to let this slide. As long as we keep it up we will always know that at least we're fit and healthy, even if we get a little chubby-wubby!

Hi Biscotti,

I read an article in the NYTimes this week about the discrimination against overweight trainers and how difficult it can be to get a job for them. One in particular struck me. At 5'2", my height, but 200 BIG pounds, this gal was really fit. It was an interesting article.

I know how you feel about the "chubs". Don't we all? What a battle we're in, and I KNOW it's for life! There is no easy way, that's for sure. Hang in there and keep trying. It'll pay off in time.

I have been writing down my food haphazardly. No Fitday. Tomorrow I go back to the food diary vigilance. I'm sort of teetering between oblivion and "almost in a groove."

I found a site for estimating your life expectancy (www.livingto100.com). I did this on another quiz awhile back and I always seem to come up with about 89 years old. Who can imagine themselves at 89? I just hope gasoline-powered cars are a thing long gone by then:-) Gas went down 14 cents/gallon overnight the other day.

Cheers to you all!

I'm surprised, but I'm down a pound on my weigh-in this week. It must be all the screaming I did during those Homeland Security and FEMA press conferences. Futile outrage, but apparently it burns calories:-) Trying to stay informed isn't all that easy these days. Trying to stay cool, calm and collected apparently isn't either.

My BMI is creeping slowly downward, 27s here I come--haha!

Cheers to you all!

I'd like to whack "Lil Un" and Rove with one of those tree trunks I've been hauling out to the street! Mention one or the other I and I go into a frenzy. If it helps me burn the calories, I'll go for it!

Keep up the excellent work! A lb is great :) Good luck getting to your goals!

I was down this week on my weigh-in. I doubt that will hold, but I'm going to try. I'm not giving up. I'll fill in my exercise in a later entry. It's the same ol' jogging and one day of massive crisis house cleaning. That's probably the only way it could have gotten done as I look back now. Nevertheless the house is less cluttered looking where it counts.

My heart goes out to anyone who has family affected by KATRINA. What am I saying--we're all affected by this incredible humanitarian crisis. I'll stop now--lest I rant!

I heard the Stones' "Gimme Shelter" on the radio last night and I immediately thought of all the victims waiting for water and food for 5 days in New Orleans and Mississippi. Here are the lyrics:

Gimme Shelter

Oh, a storm is threat�ning
My very life today
If I don�t get some shelter
Oh yeah, I�m gonna fade away

War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin�
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost it�s way

War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

Rape, murder!
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away

The floods is threat�ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I�m gonna fade away

War, children, it�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
It�s just a shot away
I tell you love, sister, it�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
It�s just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away

Hi Biscotti!

Good to hear from you! I appreciate your supportive words. Its amazing that a Category 1 storm would cause a power outtage of 8 days! The massive amount of yard work is even more amazing to me. It sure brings back memories of Andrew 13 yrs. ago. At least I'm at the tail end of this mess and can see the end. It's just a matter of time.

I used to be holding on dearly to 127 and now it's moved up to 130!!! This is NOT good! It's interesting how other factors affect one's eating. I'm very upset at this turn of events but am sure that when I finally return to normal I'll go back down. Well, we all think this way, right? but the results are not necessarily what we'd like.

Anyway, I'ml still "aware" and trying. Aren't we all?

Good to see you, Biscottibody!! You're doing great! We just keep plugging along, don't we? We're never giving up, right? Have a good week!
