So... after a long hiatus, I decided that it's a good time for me to come back to this site.
Why did I leave in the first place, since I've been doing so good? Needless to say, I fell off the wagon. It all started with some baking experimen... Read more
Horrible week, diet-wise; sweet tooth monster reared its ugly head again not once, not twice, but thrice. Including this morning. Feeling extremely lethargic as a result now. It would be an understatement to say that I'm very much disappointed i... Read more

Oh my, I can't believe it's week 6 already... how time flies.
So, I have reflected upon those past few weeks, and to be honest... I'm not happy with my progress, at least weight-wise. Then again, I only have myself to blame for it. Ever sin... Read more

As of my regular weigh-in today, I have officially lost a 100 pounds. :) 10 days before my first sparkversary (Feb. 17th) too! I still got a bit to go before reaching my goal weight, but this is a major milestone nevertheless and I'm proud of my... Read more
Today, I bought my first size XS shirt.
That's right, XS.
My first XS EVER. And I'm super happy about it! This is a great accomplishment for me. To finally be able to fit into something of that size... sure, the shirt itself might look... Read more
Dear Week 12 Me,
Would you look at that... you did it! You were able to go the full 12 weeks AND benefit from it in the process. Not only are you healthier and slimmer, but you might have also made some friends along the way. I'm sure it wa... Read more
I'm disappointed with myself... I've been doing fine so far, losing weight... then I have to go ahead and gorge on my mom's cooking (for which I have a strong weakness). Twice!! Because it didn't register with me after the first day of doing so ... Read more
Today I wore my skinny jeans (size 11~) with a pair of these sage green ankle boots that I've had since forever (they fit good when I initially bought them... now they're loose. I swear my foot went down nearly a whole size, lol). When I got off... Read more
So I stepped on the scale this morning, and I noticed that I weighed in at 154.4. That weight officially puts me at 24.9 (at 5'6"), or at the very edge of the Healthy range. When I started, I weighed 240 and was in the middle of the Obese range.... Read more
Long time no blog! I finally have enough motivation to write a few thing ever since my blog break in July.
Things have been HECTIC. A lot of negative stuff happened... there were a few positive events in there too. What I basically want to ... Read more
Today's weigh-in was marked by me finally passing the halfway mark of 55 pounds. Half gone, half to go! It also marked me finally leaving the Obese BMI category and reaching the Overweight category with a score of 29.9. This is a huge motivator ... Read more
Nothing new at all has been happening for the past two weeks. Well, apart from family problems which are causing plenty of drama. I am not letting it affect my eating habits though.
As of today I weigh 186 pounds, which is extremely close t... Read more
