Once More with Feeling :-)

YAY for successful weigh-ins!!! I’m down -5 pounds today – bringing my total loss to -14 pounds to date.  Woo-hoo for me!!! (the sound you hear is me patting myself on the back).  The challenge now is to start exercising…..

So, for the readers out there that are on Goodreads ~ Any idea why they’re removing all of the Amazon content from their site?  I think I remember reading on their site somewhere that the cost to keep Amazon’s information has gotten so prohibitive – yet………….none of the other “reader sites” seem to have that problem.  I’ve been trying to rescue my books, but then again, for the most part I only read on my Kindle; amazon is the only seller of kindle books………so finding their info on other sites has been a bit difficult.  I’ve looked on publisher sites, author sites, etc.  So at this point, I just don’t know.  I’ve spent a lot of time (yes, years!) building my library, inputting books onto the goodreads system, and now that work just seems to be going away with a click of a button.  That being said, I’m not that fond of librarything (although they have improved their site over the years) and I quit using bibliophile years ago (I think they’re gone now; I tried to find a link and I keep getting connected to Gospel Media Network??).  I did stumble on another reading site, The Reading Room; but all in all, Goodreads still seems to be the best.  Deep sigh, I guess.  I just hope when they pull the kindle books from their collection that the new edition that they link my book to is still an ebook ~ that’s the only way I’ll be able to know which of my books are paperback or not.

Food plan for today:
B: Yoplait Key Lime Pie (6 oz) w/ 1/4 c. grape-nuts (6 pts)
S: Apple w/ 1 babybel (1 pt)
L: Sun-Dried Chicken Roll-Ups w/ 1 c. mixed veggies (9 pts)
S: Grapefruit
D: ??? Either roll-ups again or I’ll cook something
S: ???
E: ???

  1. Hey you!

    I don't know what's going on with Goodreads but is that where you buy all of your ebooks through? Or do you buy straight from the amazon site?

    I'm going to check out that Reading Room, is it new or what?

    Oh and CONGRATS on the weight loss sweetie, keep up the good work!


  2. Wena – I think it's fairly new. I stumbled on it yesterday – it's free, but just doesn't seem to be as put together as goodreads. I actually buy my ebooks directly from amazon (I have a Kindle), though I have bought straight from Harlequin and Carina before. Thanks for the Kudos on the weight loss!!


  3. Dev you are on FIRE! Down 14.5 lbs. since the New Year is awesome. It's great that you're seeing progress immediately… that's what will keep you on track. I remember being miserably hungry the first week or two when I started using the Lose It app in April 2010… but when I lost 3 lbs. that first week I was like, “Whoa.. it's working!” It just kept getting better. It will for you, too!
    You can do it!!! I'm so excited for you!! xo


  4. I've been using Shelfari for years even though I haven't been reading much lately. You can check out the shelfari bookshelf on my side bar.

    Congrats on the loss. Keep up the great work.

    Rock on!!
