After hearing a good friend's testimonial while at a mutual friend's wedding this past weekend, I've tentatively decided to get myself a Fitbit. It's kind of pricey at $100, but I can afford it, and if it will help me be more accountable and pr... Read more
Getting back to it, a day at a time
Friday, June 01, 2012      1 comments

So, I'm back in my mother's house for the summer, but I'm doing what I can to make sure being here has the opposite impact it had last summer (where I gained back about 20-30 pounds of my 60 pounds lost). So far I'm doing pretty well on food i... Read more
When you hit bottom, all you can do is go up

I've had a momentously bad week. Monday was the anniversary of my father's passing, which always hits me pretty hard. It was also our last week of school, which is extremely busy for teachers trying to get everything in and done, with graduati... Read more
Just a little rage...
Monday, April 30, 2012      1 comments

Rough day at school today. We're down to the last 3 weeks (13 more days), and Mondays are always just a pit of despair. I live in a community where people just don't control their kids, which puts any and all of them, at all ages, out until mi... Read more
Getting back to basics
Sunday, April 29, 2012      2 comments

It's been almost a year since I posted last, and pretty much just as long since I thought seriously about my weightloss. Unfortunately I backtracked a bit this year, but only about 20 pounds, so I'm glad I caught myself before I slipped any fur... Read more
Diets built around blood type
Sunday, July 10, 2011      3 comments

I stumbled across the blood type diet
_diet/blood_o.asp , and figured I'd see if anyone else has heard of or followed anything like this. I know a couple people have pointed at that there's no definiti... Read more
Reading The Spark
Monday, June 27, 2011      3 comments

My back has healed nicely from the mini-surgery, I don't feel any sort of pain or annoyance, so huzzah! I've also bought and started to read The Spark, and am honestly surprised by how good it is. It's really given me some things to thin... Read more
Hiatus due to hole in back
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      2 comments

So, about a month ago I discovered a small, smooth, non-hurting bump on my back. Due to the fact that it was painless and in a hard to reach spot, I ignored/forgot about it for awhile. Then a couple days ago it started hurting, so I figured I ... Read more
I feel like a drug addict
Monday, June 13, 2011      3 comments

I'm trying to steer clear of sugar to cut the cravings, and it's SO hard. I feel like this is, on a very minor scale, I'm sure, comparable to an addict's withdrawl. I crave it, I want it, I see it everywhere, and sometimes I literally have to ... Read more
Back to Reality
Monday, June 06, 2011      1 comments

I've been back in the lower 48 for about 2 and a half weeks now, and admittedly have not been diligent about watching what I eat, and with a wedding and a group vacation in the mix, have over-indulged quite a bit. But, I made a pact with myself... Read more
Slowly but surely...
Friday, January 21, 2011      0 comments

I think things are falling into place a little bit. I'm getting more comfortable with my responsibilities and resources, which means a little bit more "me" time in my day. I'm trying to slowly instill a daily workout regiment other than my wal... Read more
First week in the tundra
Saturday, January 08, 2011      2 comments

Hello all! I survived my first week of living out in the Alaskan Bush! I didn't do as good of a job as I had thought on my initial grocery shopping, so eating has been a bit of a challenge (also not having all the cookware I need has hindered ... Read more
Major life changes in about 30 days...
Thursday, December 02, 2010      5 comments

In about a month, my entire life is going to change. I'll be going from driving to work (and everywhere), easy access to all sorts of food, and tons of fast food restaurants but a stone's throw away to a place with ZERO restaurants of any kind,... Read more
New Job, No Spark
Wednesday, October 27, 2010      2 comments

So I started a new job this month, and as an unfortunate side effect I've found myself slacking miserably on both exercise and eating better. I find myself completely wiped out by the end of the day, and can feel myself slipping back into old h... Read more
Rewards Revisit
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      5 comments

So, having lost 50 pounds, I decided to go back and remind myself what my initial goals and rewards were in April. Starting weight: 345 (also highest weight) Current weight: 291 ... Read more
