Just a rant. tl;dr - people on the internet need to relax! ~~~~~~~~ So I visit this blog called "100 Days of Real Food." It's great for meal (esp. lunch!) ideas and information about the food we eat. It has a very active following - often... Read more

Both Dresses Fit

Saturday, March 02, 2013      4 comments

So not only does the ordered-a-size-too-small dress for my sister's wedding fit (the dress shop lady complimented me on my tiny waist - I haven't heard that in about 15 years - I guess my hourglass is slowly revealing itself again), but I was ab... Read more

Doin' all right, gettin' good grades...

So I'm hanging in there with my current plan, which is as much real food as I can (no fast food, processed food, white/brown sugar, or white flour) and a little (very little) exercise. I've lost three pounds this week, but as I've lost these SAM... Read more

The Rules...but who sets them?

Sunday, February 10, 2013      6 comments

So I am looking at this website called "100 days of real food." It's the story of a family who decided to cut out all processed foods for 100 days, and then decided to share their story and helpful information with others who might be interested... Read more

I feel like I don't even know who I am sometimes. Maybe the aliens have me? My office is spotless. I'm caught up with my work and tackling a project I've been putting off for two months. I've packed my lunch nearly every day for 2 weeks. ... Read more

I'm back with a vengeance! Well, at least a volleyball...

Sunday, September 30, 2012      4 comments

Hi everyone! I've gained back 10 of the 23 lbs I lost, but I'm going to get back in balance as of today. I have so much trouble keeping the balls juggling if I'm not focusing on each of them individually - for example, if I'm looking at the... Read more

Week 15 - such a mess

Monday, July 23, 2012      0 comments

I lost two lbs, which is great, but I'm becoming exhausted (mentally) by the constant events and temptations thrown in my path. Most days this week I only ate 1 1/2 - 2 meals, rather than 3 and snacks, because I knew I would be somewhere, eating... Read more

Week 14 - Slight derailment, but no damage done yet

Monday, July 16, 2012      2 comments

Hi everyone! I missed blogging (and tracking) last week. I'm up 1 lb from two weeks ago, but considering I had houseguests, the 4th of July, visits to Mom, Grandma, a birthday party and a bridal shower in that time, I'm thrilled it wasn't ... Read more

Hi everyone! I've lost another pound, so down 22 all together - almost to my second goal (if you remember I wanted to lose 12 lbs, then 11, then 10, etc...) I had great news at work yesterday. I'm not allowed to tell anyone yet, which ... Read more

Week 11 - 1/4 of the way to my goal!

Monday, June 25, 2012      1 comments

This is so exciting. I feel awesome! I have lost a total of 21 lbs as of this morning! My BMI has gone from 38.5 to 35.2. The best part (to my mind) is that so far I have not relied on exercise to lose the weight. I feel VERY strongly that... Read more

Week 10 - Great Success!

Monday, June 18, 2012      1 comments

So I'm down 2 lbs this week, despite having had company and eating both at a Hibachi AND Thai take-out in the same week. I'm probably retaining about 20 lbs of water after all that sodium, but man was it worth it! I had an interview this mo... Read more

End of First 9 Weeks - Report Card

Monday, June 11, 2012      3 comments

I just posted my weekly update blog, when I realized that it has been 9 weeks since I've started getting things back on track. When I was a kid, that was a term of school, and at the end of the 9-weeks grading period, you get a report card. So I... Read more
