Warning: whining ahead!
I'm having a rough day today. Gary and I got into a stupid fight last night and I couldn't sleep because I was so angry. You'd think I'd have realized what was happening since the topic for my class today was the frustration-aggression hypothe... Read more
Feelin' the burn!
I'm very sore today. My quads, abs and shoulder/ chest muscles all hurt quite a bit. It's a good hurt, though, because I know that the pain comes from trying to get healthier.
I debated whether or not I should do anything today. Would it... Read more
One step at a time
I'm feeling pretty proud of myself today. I got up and actually got on the exercise bike. I biked for an hour (those last 10 minutes were tough) and would have gone 11.5 miles if it had been an actual bike. Although considering that there's a... Read more
Getting Gary on board
My husband, Gary, and I were chatting last night in bed. He's currently at about 215, and he'd love to get back to under 200. I'm not saying where I'm at (some things a girl has to keep private!), but I need to lose more like 50 pounds to his ... Read more
So this is day 3 of my back on the bandwagon, and I'm struggling a bit. Despite living in North Carolina, I'm living in the mountains (aka the High Country) so we're up to our eyeballs in snow. So no work today. When I'm sitting here, alone, ... Read more
Getting back on the band wagon
I fell off the wagon. Again. But you know what, that's okay. It's part of life. No one is perfect and neither am I. But it's time to dust myself off, re-evaluate where I am now, and get back on track.
I'd done so well, losing almost 50... Read more
I'm engaged! Gary proposed last week, after more than 5 years together, and I said yes! So we're officially engaged! Woo hoo!
It's very exciting, but also good motivation to get back on track. I also bought my first house in June, so ... Read more
My pants *really* don't fit now!
It's been almost a year (about 10 months), and I've lost almost 50 pounds. That's just so amazing to me! I saw some pictures from a year ago along with some taken 2 weeks ago. And I just can't believe the difference! To me, I pretty much loo... Read more
Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!
Remember those old, cheesy commercials where the old lady has fallen, and presses the button on the emergency necklace that she's wearing and shouts "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up!" And then the paramedics show up and she's instantly hea... Read more
My pants don't fit!
I'm so excited. Because my pants don't fit! I bought a cute pair of black capri pants in May this year, they were a tad loose as they were a size 20 (I generally wear an 18, but these were cute and on sale!). But today I have to keep tugging ... Read more
So now I'm off the phen for another week. I started having some tightness in my chest and I called the doctor. I think it's just acid reflux or heartburn. I'm really luck in that I very rarely have severe heartburn, like once every 2 or 3 yea... Read more
Getting a push with phentermine
So today marks the one week anniversary of starting phentermine for the second time. I tried it for about three days when I was a junior in college, and I didn't sleep during those three days. My then (now ex) boyfriend convinced me that I was... Read more
