Third time's a charm?
I cannot seem to stay motivated! I wish I was thinner. I wish I had more energy and did not feel cranky and tired ALL THE TIME. I wish I could control my cravings for sweets/carbs. But I have not been trying. I got a Fitbit back in November, and... Read more
It has been a long while for me. To make a long story short...I lost about 20 pounds in 2008 (woo hoo!), then got pregnant with our second child (woo hoo!) in August of that year. I really enjoyed pregnancy, I had an excuse to eat whatever I wa... Read more
I actually went a little past the "10 pouns lost" mark for the first time in...well...ever.
I've always been able to lose 7 or 8 pounds pretty easily, but then I get stuck, get tired of dieting, and just quit (and gain the weight back, plus... Read more
Felt myself slipping...
I've been doing so well, I decided to reward myself this weekend. First with a huge burrito from On the Border (and a Margarita), and again with ice cream from Sonic yesterday.

Here is the photo of my new bike. Hubby got the same model, men's version. He has been wanting to buy bikes for a while, and I was ske... Read more
Darn my Husband!
I would love to convince my husband that he should lose a pound or two as well, but he is not interested. And of course while we're out today, he suggests getting hot dogs at the Sonic down the street. It's convenient, and I was hungry, so I had... Read more
Day 4 and still plugging along
Today was my 4th day in a row of walking during my lunch break. I'm already starting to look forward to it, and enjoying it. I can tell my energy is up, too. The calorie-burning goals are what does it for me. For instance, yesterday I didn't hav... Read more
I just stumbled upon SparkPeople a couple of days ago. I'd seen ads for it online for months, but have always ignored them. Then on Tuesday, I got an email with information about the site, and decided to check it out. I mean, after all, it's fr... Read more
