Made it! Finally! 199 pounds! That brings my total pounds lost to 130 in 18 months... all through eating better and moving more. No surgery, no drugs, no hypnosis. Loving life!... Read more

So, July was a month of experimentation. I've lost a ton of weight over the last 14 months (113 pounds to be exact), but I've still got all this FAT on my body. So, I thought I'd try an experiment in July. I'd done some reading on heart-rates... Read more
Hmmm... another plateau?

A little... terrified

I had to go to Urgent Care the other night... and while I know I was fully clothed, and on a different scale... I was very shocked by the weight they got on me (way higher than I expected). I think I've been doing okay this month... staying... Read more

...that I have to stop wallowing. Honestly, overall, I don't have anything to complain about. I'm employed and making good money, I have a beautiful house that I love. A really awesome pup. Support of family. I'm healthy. I'm making friend... Read more

I can't get out of my mind that my endocrinologist thinks I should get down to 160. I figured at 42-43 that even getting back to 170 (where I was when I was 25) would be a stretch. I wonder if she based that on anything OTHER than the horr... Read more

Love riding my bike. That's an indisputable fact. I was planning to do about 13 miles on one of my favorite trails last night. I got 6.2 miles and got rained out (it was POURING on the trail). Well, I loaded up the bike and went home, where ... Read more
Confidence and self-esteem
Tuesday, July 03, 2012      1 comments

I know I already blogged once today, but I just want to try getting this out of my head. I'm tired of it circulating around in there. Way back when, when I was thin, I was never at a loss for confidence and self-esteem. Then, even after I... Read more
It's really weird...

I haven't been in the low 200s in so many years... it had to be the mid-late 90s the last time I was this weight. My brain is having a hard time ummm, ACCEPTING that I weigh 217, and not 317. I still naturally worry about things like "will... Read more

Today... with my weight loss in June... my BMI finally moved from Obese to Overweight. While I think it is silly to be so geeked over something that is based on nothing more than a height/weight calculation... I'm still geeked. Yippee!!... Read more

Training for a century... on dirt
Sunday, June 24, 2012      4 comments

Yes, we crazy peeps here in Dallas do a Century mountain bike ride. It is held at a local trail and this year happens September 15th. I think last year a grand total of 2 people (maybe 3) made it to 100 miles. I have no idea if I can do a ful... Read more
New approach in July
Friday, June 22, 2012      2 comments

I think this 300 mile goal in June has taken on a life of its own. I get way too caught up in where I am, where I need to get to, how many days I have to go, how many miles do I have to do each day... Now, I fully believe that goals are go... Read more
