A Very Merry Christmas
Sure, we could attribute my emotions to the pretty number I found on the scale this AM (301.8), but that really isn't it. Honestly, it was because I was just able to be in the moment and enjoy myself and my family.
Let's get this out of th... Read more
Moving Forward...Not Really...Well, Maybe
I keep walking forward, though it doesn't feel like I'm making much progress.
I have to accept that the scale is likely not going to change in the direction I want right now.
I'm having difficulty with my workouts, which ALWAYS affects... Read more
It's the Little Things
I ate considerably better, while not exactly "on".
I'm quite sure I went over my calories, though I'll never know because I didn't log anything...and I don't care to right now.
I'm still fighting that "UGH!" feeling, m... Read more
I Make No Promises
Last week, I wrote out my frustration and then I shut down. I shut down everything. For one whole week I just stopped going through the motions. I stopped fighting, pushing forward. I just stood still for one week. Most people would say I w... Read more
Fat Lot of Good It Did Me
Yep. I'm a good girl on my trip. I walk until it hurts. I run and/or otherwise workout every day for at least 20 minutes. I try to stay away from the "bad" foods we all know and love. I limit myself and try to make the most of it... Read more
My bags are (mostly) packed, I'm on my way (tomorrow)...
I had plans coming into this week.
1) Enjoy and relax.
I relaxed myself to the brink (and past) boredom as early as Monday night. I'm not so great at relaxing.
2) Run ... Read more
Learning to Love MY Journey
So, I've been getting some compliments lately on how great I look. After you start losing a considerable amount of weight, you go from getting these all the time, to getting them less and less as people settle into the idea that you're changing... Read more

Haven't Attacked Much...
...but the couch. My hip is KILLING me lately. I've tried staying off of it the past couple days but that's just not working. All I have to do is get through to Friday when I get my adjustment (and probably a stern talking to from the chiro f... Read more
Post Thanksgiving Plan of Attack
So glad that's over. Well, sorta. Having Thanksgiving at home today with my Hubs and the boys (turkey took all day yesterday to thaw in cold water, but is now safely in the oven). The scale had me at 302.6 at first weigh-in this morning. (Of... Read more
Well, Thanksgiving was....interesting this year. A big blow out with the family followed by a guilt trip followed by 6 hours in a car to drive to my sister's house. I was an emotional wreck, but I made it through only by trying to make the bes... Read more

It's Nice to Hear Good Things
It's no surprise that this week has been rough on me. I had a great 5-miler last Saturday, and while it was rough, it wasn't all that bad. Monday, however, I did my "easy" 2-mile run and stupidly I ran too fast. As I told the woman at the gym... Read more
We all have choices. Sometimes they're big choices - have kids? not have kids? get married? stay single? leave a relationship? Big fat choices that change the entire cour... Read more
All I Can Do Is Laugh
...because I really just want to cry... because I'm having one of those "maybe they were right" moments right now.
Last night I was scheduled for an "easy" two mile run. HA! Easy, my foot! First of all, the weather was BEAUTIFUL! It was... Read more
