Feeling Random - W3.D7
I went to write W3.D6 and realized that tomorrow is the start of week 4...and I thought, is that right? Nope, it wasn't. I haven't been paying much attention to little details lately...no time.

It's Not Just About Me - W3.D5
As a person needing to lose a considerable amount of weight, I tend to find myself focusing on...well, myself a lot more than usual in this process. What do I need to eat? What do I need to do today? I whine to my husband (yes, I whine) "But ... Read more
Last Day of School and Killing the Scale - W3.D4
So, I've been a bad little girl and weighing myself every day. I know not to do this because my weight likes to fluctuate a LOT, but every day so far it's been down a little bit, down a little bit more. Today...not so great. It said I was up ... Read more

So, Uhm...About Last Night... - W2.D7
I could sit here and tell you how awful I was last night. How I had a few too many drinks (not enough to get drunk, just enough to --probably-- break the bank on my nutritionals). How I ate half a McGriddle when I got home at 2 am. How I didn... Read more
