Tales from My Scale

Today begins the May Day Weight Loss Challenge.

My Goals: 15 lbs to lose. Today I weighed in at 129.5. To many of you, that might sound skinny. It's not - I'm 5 ft tall. Today's weigh-in puts me at a BMI of 25 - finally in the healthy range instead of overweight.

My History: I was underweight until I retired from running after college. I was on the Cross Country team in high school and college. I loved running, but my legs didn't. In 1999, I gave birth to a 9.5 lbs little monster baby boy, weighing in before his birth at 70 lbs more than that skinny runner I used to be. I don't even remember stepping on a scale between Little Man and Moo Moo's births. When Moo was about 9 months old, my sisters and I did Weight Watchers together. Still nursing Moo, I lost weight really easy. Then I started taking Paxil and my weight slowly crept back up. Now I am 6 months Paxil-free and want to lose that weight again.

My Weaknesses: Chocolate, The Jade Garden Chinese Buffet, Papa John's, comfort eating, reading blogs instead of cleaning my house and exercising.

Hi Jenny! Found your site from Menu Plan Monday. I am in the challenge too...good luck to you!

Also, I am very interested in the cookbook you mentioned yesterday. Eating healthy is a struggle for me when I am cooking for my southern born and bred husband who wants everything fried in butter!!!
