2 years later....
I'm not sure what made me think of Sparkpeople today, but I suddenly felt a push to log in and update my blog, as it is a personal journal of my ups and downs. A year ago, I was feeling fantastic....down 80 lbs., active, energetic, less physica... Read more
Continuing on with positive changes....
....even though I've hit a plateau. In the last month, I've only lost 5 lbs. And it's driving me crazy. I weigh myself every day, which isn't helping. I don't feel the same dispair that I used to feel when I was heavier, but it is a disappoi... Read more
Lots of changes....
Since my last blog entry in October, I have lost 52 lbs and dropped 3 clothing sizes. Last I measured, back in May, I had also lost 16 inches (I'm due to remeasure) total. Excercising is easier and more enjoyable weighing less and I'm gaining ... Read more
I.....am an emotional wreck. It's been a long, long time since I've felt this way. Self-depreciating thoughts attack me from all angles. Self-consciousness bordering on paranoia are at an all time high. I feel like a failure.

I had an unexpected day off from work today due to my kids' school being closed for the snow/ice storm that came through. And, due to circumstances beyond my control, I didn't do my work out during the day like I should have. I hadn't worked o... Read more
Ups and downs of a beginner...
Well, I've overloaded on carbs the last two days....relying way too heavily on pasta-based meals (my go-to comfort meal). Despite this, I've stayed to appropriate portion sizes and have been WAY more conscious of what I eat during the day. Tod... Read more
Life sure is hard sometimes! Geesh! But, I'm staying focused despite life circumstances. Taking a break tonight to refresh my emotional side.... Read more
I jumped out of bed this morning, couldn't wait to weigh in! And I was happy to see that I was down 2.4 lbs for the week! I couldn't be happier and it really motivated me to keep going today. I started a new WATP video today, the 5 Day Walk P... Read more
I. Am. So. Hungry
Wow! I'm starving. Seriously starving. Now, I shouldn't be since i have eaten almost all of my calories for the day AND I'll have drank 12 glasses of water by the time I go to bed tonight. BUT.....I haven't transitioned to eating foods that ... Read more
I reached the ravenous phase.....
...this afternoon at lunch time. All in all, I think I handeled it pretty well. Ate an extra slice of pizza that I probably shouldn't have had, but did well otherwise for the day. I did a 3 mile WATP video after the kids went to bed and I've ... Read more
MIA for 8 months
It's been 8 months since my last blog post, and not much has changed between then and now. I have, however, gotten back on the SP train and feeling extra motivated to eat healthy and excercise on a regular basis. I contemplated joining a gym a... Read more
May 6 - Sunburned and fancy free
I had a really great weekend. Got up yesterday and loaded the kids, their bikes, water, and snacks into the car and then went to a local track to walk while they road. Did a mile, then took a break so they could play on the playground, then di... Read more
May 2 - Okay, I remember how this feels now....
I had a pretty good day today. Weighed in at work for the Biggest Loser challenge and didn't even care that a coworker knows how much I weigh now! There were a LOT of people signing up, so I was pretty excited about that! We got our car back ... Read more
