I haven't blogged in forever! I've been on sparkpeople, but not as active as I should be. I'm trying to focus on being more balanced in my weight loss/maintenance. I'm getting married in fall now, and family right after that. I'd like to wor... Read more
I have forgotten the WHY of weight loss.
So..... I've had a tough couple of days. This journey has been very long and after two years I'm finding myself more frustrated then ever. I was reminded of another time when I had a big goal that turned into a situation in which the journe... Read more
Is my life turning around?
I really feel like it is. First my relationship with my boyfriend has made a huge turn for the better after we broke up for a week. We realized we really do love each other and got back together and have been doing great since and even talk ab... Read more
Just broke up with my boyfriend of 5 years and feeling really down. Am in the process of taking my necessaries to my parents 2 room condo until I find a place of my own. Have no idea how I'm going to do that on my salary, which is barely $1,00... Read more
Already cried, and it's going to get worse
So my boyfriend decides to tell me at noon that we're leaving soon to go to Thanksgiving lunch at his parents. LUNCH!? This whole time I've been acting like it's dinnner and he never corrected me. It's even on my calendar in the kitchen 3pm -... Read more
Sometimes you have to ask for help
OK, so I slowly inched away from sparkpeople, and now I'm inching back in. I gained a lot of weight back, but have been consistent with my workouts, doing an hour a day with one rest day a week. But I wasn't able to stop gaining weight.

Instead of one big weight-loss ticker, each week or so, whenever I feel the time is right, I am completely re-setting my ticker for a new weight loss goal. Once I hit that goal, I set a new goal. So last weeks ti... Read more

Veggie Fest 2010
For a couple of years now I've been considering becoming vegetarian, but dismissed it as being too difficult. I'd feel a little guilty every time I ate meat, but it tasted so good, and I would try just not to think about it too much.
But... Read more
I should not have weighed myself after the great day I had yesterday but I did. And gained 2.5 lbs. in like one day. So that put me in a bad mood.
Then I decided that instead of calling all these golf courses and asking for donations... Read more
New month, new goals.
OK, the no calorie counting seems to be working. I even lost a little weight even though I binged on Monday before commiting to eating without analyzing every little morsel. I've been enjoying icecream, chocolate, smoothies and other little tr... Read more
No more calorie counting
I've decided that as far as I can remember, I did NOT binge before sparkpeople.
I'm not saying sparkpeople caused the binging, in fact I'm healthier than I've ever been and I owe 100% of that to sparkpeople. But all the calorie counting I ... Read more
OK so for every one thing that I feel negative about, I'm gonna try for a positive.... ready set GO!
Negative #1 - I'm poor. I had to mooch groceries off of my boyfriend tonight. It was humiliating even though I know he doesn't mind. I... Read more
