The hubby and I got away for the weekend with my parents. We are in the 5th wheel, beside a beautiful lake, and while the parents are in town and the hubby (still lol), I get a moment of solitude. That doesn't happen often. Maybe I don't allow ... Read more
Day 32 - My first visit with a nutritionist
As part of my company's wellness plan, they pay for me to meet with a nutritionist monthly. I knew that they did a number of things, but I didn't know that this service was covered until last week. It was an AMAZING consultation. In just 30 mi... Read more
Day 14 - Keep on keeping on
Blogging keeps me motivated - when I quit blogging, I lose motivation. I think it's because I am journaling (in a sense) and by sharing my random thoughts, it keeps me focused on the various reasons that I am making the choices that I make. So... Read more
Day 13 and still streaking
Streaks play an important part to this program. I am not sure why I have over complicated the process before now. However, I am on day 13 of consistently meeting my water and step goals. Maybe it's the realization that I don't have to conquer th... Read more
Day 4 - for all of the positive people
Wow - I have been a member here for over 3 years now. I have learned so much and have seen so many successes on the pages of this site. I have gotten to know others and have felt a positive energy that no other site seems to provide.
I ju... Read more
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
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
Day 54 - Universal Fat Police
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
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
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?
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!
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
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
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!
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
