The New BodyBugg vs. The Old BodyBugg


Big changes have come to the BodyBugg, making it better than ever.
Longtime readers will remember that I tried out and reviewed a BodyBugg late last year and early this year. That model, which was grey and white and used a AAA battery, has been replaced with a new slim, light black model. BodyBugg was nice […]

Understanding My Body Thanks to BodyBugg


You would think after 20-some-odd years, I would know my body, how it functions, what it needs … But I have to admit, I think I have fallen out of touch with it in recent years. Pushed to the limit with stress, exhaustion and demands, I replaced positive patterns of eating for my size with […]

Here’s the scorecard for this week:

Days where I have resisted extra snacks and sweets: 4 
Healthy lunches taken to work: 2
Days I have worked out: 0

Phew. The annual family Christmas party is out of the way. Christmas eve is taken care of. And the eating feast of Christmas is finished. And somehow I came through it all - all the sweets, all the decadent foods, all the eating - losing a pound or two. How cool is that?
All the holiday […]

Diary of a Loser: Week 7


Let me apologize upfront for posting this a day late. I actually did write an entry for yesterday but it was swallowed up by the magic of the internet . . . Don’t you hate when that happens?
Well anyway, I am up to my eyeballs in Christmas cooking. I’m in charge of dessert (and also […]

Diary of a Loser: Week 6


I said it aloud in my office bathroom Tuesday without thinking about the inhabited stalls. I was thinking it for the umpteenth time while looking in the unfriendly giant mirror and it just came out . . .
I look fat.
And it’s true. I wasn’t dressed in a way that excentuates my positives. And these days […]

I did a happy dance when I weighed in yesterday (I weigh myself every Tuesday to chart progress) and saw that I had shed another pound. That’s two weeks in a row that’s I’ve showed a loss . . […]

Thanksgiving is tomorrow and I am nervous.
Really, I have no reason to be because the same thing happens every year: I cook crazy amounts of food, preferably in advance. And everything I make, while delicious, begins to turn me […]
