On my ticker I'm about 5 lbs from the half way mark. Wow! It's awesome to me to think of how far I've come. I just need to keep going and not get too comfortable, even if I'm shrinking out of all of the clothes I own.
Thursday is my baby... Read more
In the meantime
Well my last blog was dated June of 2011. The weekend after the 4th of July I found out I was pregnant. In late February, I gave birth to another boy. Life has been crazy, as you can imagine. So my weight loss went out the window. In June I... Read more
It's been a long time coming, but I'm 1/3 of the way to my goal. It's taken over a year, with ups and down, mainly due to me turning to food for comfort. I'm glad I've made it this far, but know I still have my work cut out for me.
I had ... Read more
Plan to Walk/Jog a 5k
So, I walked a 5k on Sunday. This week I found a plan to walk/jog a 5k. It takes 5 weeks. Yesterday I did my first day and it didn't kill me. Tomorrow I do my second day. I live in a hilly neighborhood, so by the time I'm doing the 5k on a ... Read more
Just finished. I guess the biggest difference in this book and the way I've lived my life is that I get tunnel visioned on ONE goal. I finally got my Bachelor's two years ago. It's like I just put a check by that item on my list. Next up is ... Read more
So I just bought The Spark...
And have just finished chapter 1. The book itself was $1.99 for Kindle edition, so I really couldn't refuse.
So far so good. :)... Read more
So, this morning I awoke, checked my email and found a job offer emailed at 8:39 a.m. While it's not the most intellectually stimulating position, I feel it's a good company with fabulous benefits that gives me plenty of room to advance over ti... Read more
So, having been out of work for over a month now is starting to take its toll.. Depression has hit this week. I think it started with allergies. Yes, allergies. For the first time in my life I'm suffering from allergies, and it's been pretty... Read more

I did it again.
I did another walk tonight. This time the same distance in less time - 26 minutes and 44 seconds. Which means, I broke 3.5 miles per hour as my pace. I'm still just walking (no jogging or running for spurts), but I hope to change that maybe n... Read more
Close to my next trophy, and % weight loss goals.
I'm less than 100 points to my next trophy on here. Woo! Maybe tomorrow or the day after I'll have the upgrade :)
One of my friends crossposts her Calorie Count blog to Facebook, and posted % goals recently. I thought it was a neat idea ... Read more
Think I'll go for a walk now...
Went for a walk this evening. The weather was perfect! I walked 1.57 miles in 29 minutes. I was pretty revved up by the end of the walk, and I think I'll do it again tomorrow, trying to beat my time :)... Read more
A Quarter of the Way
So today when I weighed in I was 35.4 lbs total down to the 130 I have in mind to lose. I noticed on my ticker I'm now past the first tick mark, which is a quarter of the way there. Woot!! I just have to do this three more times then I'm done... Read more
Down 4.6 lbs this week - not sure how I did it exactly. But, I'm still very happy with the results! I got my WW 10% key ring, 25 lb charm and Stay & Succeed charm. It's a LOT for one week, but I'm glad to have it :)... Read more
So, WW had this event where they had everyone gear up to walk a 5k. If you walked 5k on the assigned day, you get a key ring. Pretty spiffy huh?
So I went for it. I didn't really train like maybe I should have. I walked a few times befo... Read more
