Too Early to Tell...
Ugh. Maintenance is frustrating me. Well, today has been frustrating, really. Our washer broke, and my husband cannot figure out what went wrong. He spent almost his entire day off working on it. I went for my first jog with my brand new shoes, ... Read more
I'm not sure if I thought a band would start playing and confetti would start falling from the ceiling, but seeing my goal weight on the scale at my weekly weigh-in made me feel like that should have been happening! It might have been a little a... Read more
Working On It
I'm so excited! I had a really good annual review today! I managed my changing appetite by increasing my food in the mornings, and I got to indulge a little bit with some air-popped popcorn, Earth Balance Buttery spread and some salt. I even sha... Read more
My belly is so full! I ate way too much. Honestly, I kind of made myself do it. Why? Because if I didn't, then I would have been under my calories needed for the day and WAY under my necessary protein.
I feel kind of sick... A little bit g... Read more
Thinking On A Full Stomach
I like having the mornings to myself during the week, but I sure don't like having to get up at 4:00 to do it. =/ I'm getting all of my OT in the mornings so that we don't have to pay extra for daycare. On that note, I'm trying something new wit... Read more
Oh, this migraine is hanging on way too long! What a way to start and end your weekend, which has not been the best for my health, although it has been a little bit of an eye-opener.
Confession: I went over my calories yesterday. Significan... Read more
Thinking About Food
I have a migraine right now (not all of my vision has returned yet), but I wanted to post a quick blog. Why? Because I only 1.5 pounds left to reach my goal! All together, I will have lost 75 pounds total, and that has made me feel so excited!

Running for the Door
Praise the Lord, I am back on track! I am on my way to feeling better and have already seen a drastic increase in my energy and mood. I'm still in pain, but nothing like I was. It also helps to know that there's a light at the end of the tunnel ... Read more
Blarg. I have such a hard time deciding when to go to the doctor. I feel so good with the changes that I've made to my diet and lifestyle, it shocks me when I get sidelined by my health issues. I'm at my healthiest, and then suddenly I'm in pain... Read more
Today started out so well, then took a nose dive... I walked to the local grower's market in town with my friend Chelsea. We got all of our fresh veggies for the week (I decided to branch out and buy some new ones to learn to cook with) and were... Read more
So Close You Can Taste It...
I cannot believe that I'm almost there! I have lost a total of 72 pounds from my heaviest weight! That number seems so large now, almost like it was a different person. When I think about how I ate, why I ate, how I treated myself and dealt with... Read more
Making Life a Workout
It was a crazy busy day yesterday! We walked to our local grower's market to buy some veggies and soap (I love the all-natural soap one of the local ladies makes), and then went to see Crater Lake and go hiking on some trails to see waterfalls. ... Read more
Picking Myself Back Up
I slipped up today. Everyone does at some point, but normally when I slip up, I feel guilty and want to quit. This is different, though. This time, I know why I slipped up. I'm determined not to let tomorrow be a repeat.
I made homemade che... Read more

Back On Track
Sometimes I get so caught up in the big picture that I forget all of the little steps that I had to take to get there. I fell off of the Spark People bandwagon for awhile, telling myself, "Well, do you really need all of these tools? It's so ted... Read more
