I think I should write things down more often because I am definitely the "bottle up your feelings" type. There isn't anything really note worthy going on right now, but I figured it couldn't hurt to take some time to write. <BR> <BR> I was slightly disappointed with my weigh in the morning, although I wasn't all that surprised with the outcome. Didn't quite lose an entire pound this past week, but did lose some. I wasn't too ... Mon, 7 Jul 2014 13:39:50 EST Using The Beginning Of April As A Starting Point... So, here's what happened. I started out the year great, and was even down 10 lbs within 2 months. Not quite sure what happened as soon as March hit, but all I know is that things started to go downhill, and I felt like I was sort of losing control. This past month has been filled with binges, restarts, lots of movie watching, more binges, oh yea, and more restarts. I was going to use April 1st as my most recent "restart" date, but decided against it. Not only do I think it's kind of cliche to... Thu, 3 Apr 2014 19:22:07 EST Just Catching Up Figured I should post something since I haven't done a blog entry in a while. This last week has been pretty awesome actually. Monday was a little rough, but I've been tracking and staying accountable since Tuesday. I've been under 2,000 calories every day, and got over 30 mins of cardio Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Took a break last night, but am planning on hitting the gym tonight again. I'm feeling much better emotionally too. I was having quite the rough patch of self hatred last week... Sat, 9 Nov 2013 14:11:49 EST A Break Up Letter Dear Fast Food, <BR> I know that we've been together for a long time, but it's time for me to move on and leave you in the past. You know who you favourite pizza places, my favourite burger and fry places, and my favourite Tex-Mex food places. <BR> I enjoyed you while we were together, but I'm not going to feel sick because of you anymore. There are SO many better things that I can eat that will actually aid in my quest to lead a healthy and active life, and I don't need you slowin... Tue, 22 Oct 2013 13:51:21 EST Just Feel Like Writing/Typing I Guess Where to start....I'm not really sure. I've been struggling pretty badly both internally and externally over the last few months. I really wanted to be in better shape by the time summer rolled around, but surprise, surprise...I'm not...I'm actually a bit worse off to tell you the truth. I've ballooned back up to 229lbs. I had gotten down to 213lbs in April, and then I'm not all that sure what happened. It's like I panicked, and then did what I do best and sabotage myself. I've lived a good 2...
