Checking In

- POSTED ON: Oct 27, 2011


   Just checking in to say Hello to everyone. This morning the scale said 116.8 lbs.  This is the lowest weight I've been since April, and I'm very pleased about it.  Especially since my calorie count has been about the same, ...which of course is really very low... and I haven't been exercising.

The only thing I'm doing different right now is my zero wheat experiment.  I've having some veggies and fruit, and even had some potato chips, so my carbs aren't super-low, ...that is...not super-low when we consider my calorie count totals. 

It looks like this house repair, construction guy intrusion, is going to go on for a couple more weeks. My little repair job is the kind that the construction company schedules in between other bigger jobs, so it's hit and miss, here and there, which I find difficult.

This past week, I've also been putting in 12 to 15 hour days on my computer dealing with small technical details on my videos which are stored on the companion Diethobby YouTube channel. Tech things to do with YouTube navigation and rating issues etc.  It isn't that technically difficult, but it involves hitting the keys over and over and over and over and over and over for hours and hours and hours and hours.

I've become obsessed with getting that organizational detail done, and hopefully after a couple of more days,  I'll have accomplished it.
 I'm also spending a lot of time as the YouTube Grandma answering the comments and questions of people
who are visiting the DietHobby channel.  I've noticed some new registrations here at, this past week, and I think they might be people that I've directed here for more info and support re dieting and weight-loss.

Life goes I'm always writing here. We have to be committed to our food plan and follow through even in the busy, stressful times in order to be successful with weight-loss and maintenance of that weight-loss. That's what I'm working very hard to do as well.

Today I'm rather lacking in inspiration, except for sharing my own life's details.  However, there are many very inspirational and informative articles in the Archives.
Take the time to read some.

checking in back at you! I am again on a stressful stretch...back taking care of elderly parent again...10 hrs away from home, have slept in hospital room 10 nights. This will change for the better Monday. But, I am able to still stay on plan and am thankful that I have my eating patterns down. The old me would have been snacking and eating hospital food, going to food station in middle of night, etc. I am glad the no wheat regime is working well for you. It has served me well. And, I am online for the first time in 10 days...didn't realize hospital had wifi.
