Day One

Thursday, February 26, 2015      2 comments

I'm back. Again. And I know that I am not the only person here who has had multiple "day one" days. Technically, it's more like day 3 but, because it's my first day blogging, we make today Day One. In the past, when I tried to lose wei... Read more

Day 61 laser tag

Saturday, July 26, 2014      0 comments

We went to a fun park for my hubby's birthday and I played laser tag. The place is two stories tall and involved a great deal of running and climbing. I would never have been able to do it without dying 2 months ago. I am far from being where I ... Read more

Sunday, July 20, 2014      3 comments

I leave for Universal in January. My mantra whenever I want to go off plan is "Universal Fat Police". I have heard if you attempt to ride certain things at Universal and you look like someone who may not fit on their rides, they pull you aside ... Read more

53 days

Saturday, July 19, 2014      2 comments

If you read my previous blogs, you'll see that I haven't been on here in over a year. But, that's not entirely accurate. Yes, I strayed away from my path to a healthier me. However, I was still stopping by to check in periodically. I would e... Read more

My Reasons

Tuesday, April 02, 2013      3 comments

I know that I have listed various reasons in different blogs and on different places...I want to list as many as I can here. Most people think that if they lose the weight, they will have a perfect life. I know that isn't the case. In fact, I... Read more

Why do I quit?

Saturday, March 30, 2013      4 comments

In September, I quit smoking. I have made it almost 7 months without a cigarette. I started walking in order to not gain weight after smoking. I am not a small girl and... Read more

Updates - it's been 3 months!

Tuesday, March 26, 2013      1 comments

I cannot believe that I haven't updated my blogs - reading several others made me remember that putting these feelings/actions into words always motivated me to keep going! On February 15th, I walked my first 5K. The goal was to finish in ... Read more

Made it through

Sunday, December 30, 2012      0 comments

Well, I made it through the holidays and I am still here. It was actually much tougher than I thought it would be - but I stayed reasonable and still ate my holiday favorites (just in much smaller quantities). I have learned to be successful a... Read more

Step by step

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      0 comments

Well, I'm still here. In my past, I have always started out strong and then stopped by the end of 2 months. In the last 2 months, I have quit smoking, cut out caffeine, and stopped biting my nails. :) I have been waking up every morning and ... Read more

I did it!

Saturday, October 27, 2012      0 comments

One of my goals (for years actually) has been to wake up early enough each morning to work out before going to the office. That way, when I get home, I am able to devote the evening to cooking dinner and spending time with my hubby (I am still ... Read more

It's been a crazy few weeks. I am still not smoking (day 47), still off of caffeine (day 33) and still tracking every bite. Had a bump in the road for exercise but am getting back on track there too. The awesome part is that a few months ago, a ... Read more

New Treadmill

Sunday, September 16, 2012      3 comments

It's crazy to think that I am excited about a new treadmill. A few months ago - I would have grinned and said "give me shoes". Now, don't get me wrong - I still love new shoes. But, I have committed myself to walking a 5K in February. And, a... Read more

The start

Sunday, September 09, 2012      2 comments

I have been a member of Spark People for a little while - mostly observing and using the tools. Then, recently, I received blood work back that showed I am pre-diabetic and it was a wake up call. It's time to take this process seriously. ... Read more
