I'm posting this to force myself to commit to it lol. Starting today, I'm going to begin tapering off on my smoking until I quit again. I know myself, and cold turkey will end in a homicide charge and a cheesecake for dinner. Right now, I... Read more

So since hitting the 100 lb mark, my body has rebelled and I've gained some back. It's been a struggle all month to get it back down. Up and down, up and down. It's seriously driving me nuts! Post-PT, my foot has been pretty good so far.... Read more
It was a struggle, but I hit it!

My first time around on Spark, I was motivated, pumped up and ready to lose! And better still, ready to NEVER pick those pounds back up. I had a great workout routine, I weighed and measured everything I ate and I did great! I'm not saying it... Read more

Down, down, down goes the ticker goal!
Saturday, May 07, 2016      6 comments

Today was weigh-in for my 5% challenge team, and today another goal went down. That makes 20% of my new high weight of just under 275 when I restarted in November. I was expecting MAYBE 220 on the scales this morning and was pleasantly surpris... Read more
Good elliptical session

Yesterday was the cookout and I overloaded on carbs, and an AMAZING potato salad that had bacon and apples in it! lol Today was a busy day off. I got laundry done, went grocery shopping to restock my fruits and veggies for my shakes, made ... Read more

I'm working today, just put on my boot to try to ease up the heel soreness a bit. Sometime this evening, I'll be heading to Sherri's for a cookout with her family. Tonight I want to try the elliptical again for a bit. I made it 15 minutes... Read more
Need to find a little focus
Monday, April 25, 2016      8 comments

*WARNING* I'm in a foul mood, so if you're sick of hearing people complain on their blogs, skip mine. I'm in a fog-brain, muddled, blah sort of state right now. Things aren't progressing how I'd like them to and I'm beyond frustrated with... Read more
Ortho appointment today
Thursday, April 21, 2016      1 comments

So my appointment with the orthopedists went pretty well today. Since I'm showing improvement, I get to continue PT for another 4-6 weeks! I'm happy about that (not so happy about $50 a week to PAY for it though) because I feel like we're maki... Read more

My weight stalls out from time to time, or bounces up and down, up and down. But slowly it's going down! I hit my 18% mark with today's weigh-in and I got to change my ticker to my 20% goal. Next goal, 220. Hopefully the ups and downs will c... Read more

So because of this new Fitbit line (250+ steps each hour), I've overdone it lol. Of course I can't JUST do 250 steps an hr, so I just keep going. And Saturday, since I was at 23000+ steps by the end of my 14 hr segment, I just kept going to ge... Read more
PT progress

Another week of PT appointments down. He's added a couple more exercises, but still not letting me do any exercises other than seated. And then, as a fun little twisted extra, makes me do balance exercises...and makes me laugh while I'm trying... Read more
New regime for my foot
Friday, April 01, 2016      7 comments

So at therapy today, John (my PT guy) told me, in not so many words lol, that I'm pushing it too far. He'd given me a stronger resistance band on Tuesday, but now we wants me to only use it on my left foot to improve my flexibility (broke my an... Read more
