Weight-Loss part 9: The 5(ish)-pound swing

It's hard to believe a whole year has passed since my first Weight-Loss Journey post!. In those 365 days, a lot of life has happened. There have been many opportunities for me to trash the whole weight-loss plan and gorge myself in response to life's ups and downs. I'm glad I didn't.

Weight-Loss part 7: Talking About Fiber

Part of any weight-loss nutrition plan is understanding how the different components affect your body's metabolism and functioning. It's very complex with lots of moving parts, and is enough to send anyone running for a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles to soothe your weary soul. I've been working seriously on improving my health through nutrition and I want to share some of the things I've learned. Maybe it will inspire someone else on their journey. I'm not a doctor, or a nutritionist, or any sort of expert. I'm just a regular 50-year-old woman trying to figure out what works for me. I hope there's some helpful information here for you.

Weight-Loss part 4: Can You Give Up Tracking?

One of the strategies I used, fairly religiously, when I was in the weight-loss zone was tracking my food. It had become a daily habit which kept me honest and accountable. There was rarely a day or a meal that didn't get logged. Though laborious, I got so used to the process that it became like brushing my teeth or putting deodorant on; it was just something I did every day. Until now.
