My sister is losing weight!
My oldest sister came up with her family for our big family get-together/ camping trip. She's noticeably much thinner! I'm so proud of her for sticking with it over such a long period of time! A little over a year ago, she and I were the same we... Read more
My head is killing me- but it's been mostly good.
So... my head is POUNDING.
My office assistant job... I left it peacefully about a month ago... only to have the "a little too friendly" old man I helped obsess over me, slightly stalk me, and yell at me and hang up the phone on me over the pa... Read more
My bridesmaid dress zipped up!
I just want to say that I tried my bridesmaid dress on just this past Monday (four days ago), and it zipped up! It wouldn't do that a week and a half before! It's still too tight, but not as tight as it was before. It just gives me some peace of... Read more
Doing this for real and not giving up!
I don't know if anyone I was friends with before on this thing will remember me; I've been gone for over a year. I'm hoping to encourage some people and receive support as well.
On Monday, I started using the nutrition tracker fo... Read more

2 pound gain? No problem
When I last blogged on here, I was about to go work out. Well, it turns out that I walked on the treadmill for 90 minutes, feeling pretty good. Afterwards though, I felt awful. I was not at all as recovered as I thought. At least I tried though.... Read more
Sick all week, but it's okay:)
I've had a terrible cold that just doesn't want to let up... but it finally seems considerably better this morning! Not super, but I think I'll at least be able to walk on the treadmill for a while. I haven't been able to work out at all since l... Read more
So much for my sad song!
Ha ha Well... I ended up taking the dog out for a walk/ run right after writing that last blog. I ended up beating my personal record by 5 minutes! (9 miles in 111 minutes this time) Then yesterday, I got another hour of good walking and running... Read more
I'm back, but... where's my support system?
I've been working really hard, and the scale has shown that... but I got on today to see that two of my Sparkteams are gone. The one I created for my Bible study group girls and the one I created for my family. Three people got on the Bible stud... Read more
I gained this week. :O
It's true. I gained half a pound. But the crazy thing is, I'm okay with it. I know that I was dehydrated last week, so it probably showed I lost a little more than I actually did. Plus, I know that I didn't do such a good job this week with calo... Read more
Let there be Stef!
I just want to talk about my wonderful sister-in-law and close friend, Stef. She has been my #1 motivator in health and weight loss for the past year. She started losing weight almost a year before I got serious about it, and has inspired me to ... Read more
1 Week Weigh In... dun dun dun!
So I weighed in this morning, and I hit my 2 lb. weight loss goal exactly. I guess I should be happy, and proud of myself... I am a little. But I honestly was hoping to surpass my goal at least a little bit. A lot of people lose more on their fi... Read more
My first week
My first week ahs been good! It's been challenging, but doable. It's kind of frustrating that I have had a cold for the past three days, but I've been taking Dayquill and working out anyway. I'm proud of myself for sticking with it and making he... Read more
