Staying Strong

Saturday, November 09, 2013      1 comments

The holiday season is here and all I want to do is bake. I love so many apple, pumpkin, and cookie recipes and want to make (and eat) them all! Unfortunately, my husband and two boys do not share my love of most baked things - they're good with ... Read more

I'm a little disappointed in myself for gaining the weight back in the first place but I'm so happy that I'm back on track! I am a woman with a few hats - mom, housewife, homeschooler, wah employee, friend, shoulder to lean on, terrible ex... Read more

Doctor's advice

Friday, March 16, 2012      0 comments

I went to see my doctor this week and she thinks I'm right on track for losing weight. My biggest downfall is either not eating enough calories (But, I certainly feel like I eat enough some days!) or my thyroid. Yes, I'm getting to the age where... Read more

Stress :(

Tuesday, March 01, 2011      0 comments

Between work and home life, I feel like I've been so over-stressed lately! Home life has gotten better and I'm so thankful for that. I'm hoping for continued improvements though. Do you work with a micro-managing boss? I feel so much ... Read more

I'm back to counting calories and writing down what I eat every day. The kids finished off my celery already and I just ate my last pickle. I guess it's a run to the store today... But, I'm going to do this. If I can lose 30 more pounds by... Read more

I keep track of my weight loss weekly and semi-monthly. I like to see the larger semi-monthly numbers. LOL Before Christmas, maybe even Thanksgiving, I was losing 6 or 7 pounds every 15 days, since then, only 2, maybe 3. I just recorded a 4... Read more

I went to TKD last night wearing my dh's uniform. His is 2 sizes smaller than mine and I wanted to see if it fit without tearing a seam. ;-) (I didn't tear anything!) Anyhow, when I walked into class, my instructor commented that if I lose more ... Read more
