I Will Do This!

9/1/14 - I had a brief resurgence of dedication at the beginning of the year then my dog died and I got depressed and didn't care what I was doing to myself. Time has passed and I am ready to start over, again. And again. And again. One of these times it's gonna have to "take". :)

2/4/14 - After recommitting in January. I am now happy to say that I feel that weight loss mojo again. I have been tracking all my food and started exercising again. Hopefully my next update will be ...

2/4/14 - After recommitting in January. I am now happy to say that I feel that weight loss mojo again. I have been tracking all my food and started exercising again. Hopefully my next update will be in this same positive vein.

1/12/14 - Sad to say I have gained even more weight back. I just got in a mode of not caring. I lost my mojo. I'm going to commit to logging my food again and once that's back starting up the exercise again. I have got to stop this before I slide all the back to my original weight.

5/21/12 - Update: I totally slacked since December'11. I have gained 20 lbs back and am over 200 again. Grrr! I need to put a stop to it now before it gets completely out of control. I started exercising again and am going to recommit to portion control and eating healthy.

11/12/11 - Update: I have lost 75 lbs and have decided to reset my weight ticker to a starting weight of 200 lbs so that I can keep focused on my end goal without my past success making me a bit lazy about moving forward.

7/18/11 - Started last year on 7/12/10. Between July and December I managed to lose about 50 lbs. During the holidays I lost the drive to lose but managed to maintain my weigh-loss for the most part only gaining about 7 lbs back. July 2011 rolled around and I started to get the itch to lose weight again. So I rebooted my program and am again super motivated to lose the next 50 lbs. Wish me luck!

Original Introduction
7/12/10 I am 44 with twin boys, who are now 6 years old. I want to be able to go on the rides with them at Disneyland and not worry about if I am going to fit or not. I want to take them to the water park and not just sit there watching! I want to get off the floor without having to hold on to the furniture! :) It is time to eat the way I know I should and get off the couch and get moving!

Glad to hear your week 3 day 1 has gone well. I find it exhilarating although challenging and I find myself looking forward to the next run.
Because today was so cool, it made running so much easier. I don't wear a jacket because it only takes me a minute before I work up a sweat.

The rest of the week will be summer like here in Sounthern Ontario but hopefully the running will come just as easy as it was today.

Have a great week

I have not been to Nerdtacular, and I do kinda want to go! But it just isn't in our budget if I want to get a house before I'm 40. The only problem is my husband isn't into the Frogpants community, so he would only go for me, in spite of me being sure he would have a good time!

I went to Philly Comic Con last year and I hated it. I paid $100 for the privilege of shopping for stuff I could buy on the internet.

Any new music suggestions?

Have you ever heard of 'Tones on Tail'?

YAY! A fellow Tadpooler!!! Ladies of Leet is totally awesome. (I'm listening to Current Geek RIGHT NOW.)

And you're exactly right about insulting the complimenter. I know I've complimented people then been annoyed when they didn't believe me, so I need to watch what I say when I'm complimented, too.

(BTW, I'm in the Tadpool group on Facebook as Illumin8)
