The wagon.
Nov 1st, 2006 by Anna

I didn’t hit a bump and fall off the wagon. No I leapt off and danced around while the wagon left me behind. I smelled the flowers and then ate a few just to see if they tasted good. They didn’t, so I tried another kind. That’s as best I can describe the last week and a half. And here people were finally noticing weight loss. “Anna, you losing weight?” “Yeah, you gonna eat the rest of that brownie?” I did good Monday but yesterday, of course, was Halloween. I’m not sure I’ve ever been good on a Halloween EVER. It’s a very cruel holiday. But today is a new day. And as Jonathan reminded me, it’s a marathon. I’m going to have slow points. Now, why I chose to run backwards in the journey back to me, I’m not entirely sure. But I’ve facing the right direction now. And I hopped back on the wagon. Thanks for saving my seat!

I’ve been having a hard time reaching my numbers for potassium. I did it today, so I tried real hard to get all of my numbers where they should be. At 8:15pm, I’m shy 46 calories and 8 grams of fat. But everything else is right in the range it should be! Whoo hoo! Well, no that’s not true. I’m over in iron by one lousy miligram or whatever it’s measured in. And I may go a bit over when I eat something here in a bit. But still, I’m pretty proud. I ate GREAT today and I was SO not deprived. I even had a box of Cracker Jack. Man, those toys have gotten lame.

I’m alive.

I’m just swamped. I’m trying to be okay with the slooooooooooow weight loss because more importantly I’m eating healthfully, but the truth is, I’m frustrated with that. If I were more willing and able to work out, I know that would make a huge difference. But I’m not there right now. But I’m plodding along. Plodding along.

Starting over over again
Aug 21st, 2006 by Anna

I haven’t been THAT bad, but I’ve neglected this site more than I intended to. Work has been work. More so than usual. I don’t see it slowing down any time in the near future, either. But I’ll try to make time to get back here at least to post food journals because that was helping a lot. So tomorrow. I’ll do it then.

Stupid spammers!
Aug 3rd, 2006 by Anna

I got a returned message email this morning. I wanted to see whose email didn’t go through and it’s not one I sent! I’m so ANGRY! Someone is using my email address of anna at my domain name and sending spam! Jerks. They aren’t into my email, they’re just using it as part of their from so that if you’ve whitelisted me, it might sneak in. If anyone has gotten spam that appeared to come from my address, would you kindly email me and tell me? And please accept my apology even thought it’s not my fault!

Fixed the 2 year charts
Aug 1st, 2006 by Anna

A couple of people pointed out that my two year charts had a bug in them. They second year sheet began its calculations on the wrong cell from the first year. A simple fix. So if you were using a two year chart from my tools page, you can download a new version and copy/paste in your old version data. Or you can send me your old version and I’ll send it back to you in the new version. Just email me at anna (at) this domain name.

Also, I added a random quotes generator in the right side bar and a mini blog with my daily food journal. We’ll see how brave I get. :)

Oh! And one more thing! I have been made aware that Internet Explorer on the PC does not display my web site very nicely. I know I can fix the style sheet to make the sections a fixed width, but I’m not sure exactly how to do that. When I figure it out, I’ll fix it. In the meantime, I’ve been told that refreshing your page sometimes fixes the problem. Oh, and moving to Firefox definitely will!

Growing Pains!
Jul 18th, 2006 by Anna

Wow! I’ve done some major changes on this site. It didn’t even take me as long as I thought it would. Keep reading to find out about my hiatus.

I still have some stuff to do to get this site the way I want. On my to-do list:

  1. Pick a better wordpress theme. This one is SO boring!
  2. Fix the photo page. The larger image got all squished together because of the space allowed in the theme.
  3. Figure out why the pages won’t order the way I want them to. I set the order, but it’s not working!
  4. Pretty up the other pages that didn’t convert from the old version of the site very well.
  5. Update the Success Stories page
  6. Fix the Recipes page
    1. Convert old versions to standard format
    2. Upload recipes
    3. Fix links
  7. Add a contact page to email me without using real email.

But unfortunately, all of that is going to have to wait. I have to get some work done that I get PAID for doing. If you notice something that needs to be done that’s not on the list above, please email me at Anna @ my domain name and let me know!

Holy Guacamole!
Jul 18th, 2006 by Anna

Okay, so I made the decision to get back to this site… And I thought I’d better check my email. It’s been… well… a great long while. In fact, I must have lost some mail sometime because all I have is from January. But WOW do I have a LOT of email to go through. I’m going to answer it all personally. But it’s going to take a little time. But hey, some of you have been waiting six months! What’s another few days, right? Right??

I’m baaaack!

I’m going to guess that my “regulars” have long since left me. Who can blame them after two years of no posting. For awhile I told myself that I’d kind of outgrown this site. I didn’t need it anymore. Ha! The truth is I was/am embarrassed that I’ve been slipping. MORE than slipping. I’m closer to my starting Weight Watchers weight than I am to my Weight Watchers goal weight. That has got to change. So maybe posting regularly will help me again. I can’t see that it would hurt. I’m going to have to do some major work on the site to get it updated, but baby steps… I’ll work on the journal first.
