I found my rock bottom photo while going through my six year olds camera. I nearly deleted it, but I'm saving it, because if I don't it will be easy to continue believing I'm not "that big". Here I am in all my glory. (I'm on the couch...that... Read more
Foot Pain
Friday, November 30, 2012      3 comments

I've been dealing with foot pain since March of this year. It's been pretty mild unless I did a lot of high impact cardio, until recently. It had gotten so bad I couldn't walk without a crazy amount of pain. I finally went to the doctor and ... Read more

I feel the need to sit down and write a long blog entry about how I'm slacking in the exercise department and how I need to get my butt in gear if I want to see the number on the scale go down. Unfortunately, I don't have time for that this mor... Read more

Wednesday, July 11, 2012      2 comments

I've been thinking a lot about why I want to lose weight and why this time will be different from the 1,353,895 times before. 1. To be able to run and play and swing and climb with my kids. I can barely walk them to the park right now. ... Read more
