It seems like forever since I've been on SP. And looking at my last blog post, it really has been a long time.
I've been meaning to write this blog for a few weeks now and always seem to get sidetracked. Tonight, while I'm eating my after d... Read more
Two years ago I started up again on SP. I had big goals and started out strong, like most people do. I was doing great, but lost my focus. I still logged in, still did minimal exercise, but started eating poorly again. Lots of fast food, lots of... Read more
So, May sucked big time. I lost focus and let my emotions and old habits reign free. I took my measurements today, and gained in almost every place. Except my neck. I actually lost 1/2". I didn't really set any goals for May, and that affected ... Read more
Yesterday was my birthday. Normally not a big deal to me, but I've been super stressed lately, anxious and feeling unappreciated. I've been doing very well controlling my emotional eating, but yesterday I made up for it.
The bad news I bing... Read more
Since putting away my scale I am strictly relying on NSV's to show my progress. I have to say that I'm happy with the decision, and the results. I think my current NSV is my favorite. Yesterday I had a busy, active day. In the past, even the rec... Read more
February results and March Missions

Rough week and revamped February missions

January = Success
January has ended up being a pretty good month for me. I didn't meet all my goals, but I still did really well.
I set a goal to lose 5lbs this month. According to my scale that didn't happen *shrugs*. According to MY scale I've been losing ... Read more
Journals and Focus
I still track my Fast Track goals. I like the fact that they are ones I know I can reach. In December I changed them as the ones I had set up I was reaching every day, and I wanted to challenge myself a little more.
One of the goals I chos... Read more
I've refused to put full body pictures on here because I was ashamed. I admit how much I weigh, but actually having people see it has been very daunting.
As part of my journey this year, I am working on NOT hiding anymore. I've come along w... Read more
No Need to Wait
I have friends who are waiting until tomorrow to start dieting. I'm not dieting, and I'm not waiting.
I was far from perfect in December, but I still managed to reach my goals. I lost 5lbs, rode my recumbent bike every day (I can now do 20... Read more

Why I keep moving even when the scale isn't
Because a year ago I couldn't do the morning uphill walk, and then come home and exercise. This year I can.
My feet don't hurt as much as they used to.
I can breathe better.
