I've lost something important.

Tuesday, May 17, 2011      3 comments

I don't really spend too much time on self-reflection. However, if you are on a journey to a healthier lifestyle, it does help to take a look back and see just how the hell you got here in the first place. In the spirit of that, I spent my wal... Read more

Still hanging in there.

Monday, February 21, 2011      5 comments

Though I experienced setbacks toward the end of 2010, I wanted to let anyone who stops by this page know I am still hanging in there. I gained back about 15 pounds at the end of last year, but I am back on track now with tracking food and regul... Read more

Finally, some progress.

Friday, September 17, 2010      0 comments

I haven't updated here in awhile, though I have still been working hard on my goals. Today I stepped on the scales to see 249.5. I've FINALLY seen the last of the 250s (hopefully). I've been going up and down in the 250s for months, partly be... Read more

Doing better.

Monday, July 26, 2010      2 comments

Just a quick note to say that I'm doing better. I'm not sure why, but I'm happy for it. I had to push through that apathetic phase, and it's nice to know that I haven't damaged my progress as far as I can tell (weigh-in is on the 4th of August... Read more

I've been struggling for awhile with keeping to the exercise and daily logging of food. Apathy has set in, and I have had a difficult time shaking it. I've lost 30 pounds, which I should be proud of, but my blood pressure hasn't budged. I sti... Read more

Yesterday's mistakes.

Friday, May 21, 2010      1 comments

I'm documenting yesterday's mistakes in the hopes of not making them again. I made two that I am aware of. Yesterday wasn't a total disaster, so I'll state the good and the bad. I got up early and got my exercise in as scheduled, which... Read more

A New Goal

Tuesday, May 18, 2010      1 comments

After reading an article here at SP about the benefits of exercising in the morning, I have decided to try it. For some, this may not be a huge deal, but for me it really is. I'm NOT a morning person. I have an extremely hard time waking up i... Read more

I was thinking today about the changes in my life since I joined up at SP 3 1/2 months ago. You know what the biggest change is? Knowledge. I am aware of every food choice, whether good or bad. Whether I'm tracking my food or not, I can't g... Read more

Sleep is a wonderful thing.

Wednesday, May 05, 2010      1 comments

Anyone else suffer from insomnia? It's been a chronic problem over the years and has recently flared significantly. I've been averaging four to five hours of sleep a night, and that broken up. Not fun, and certainly not very helpful if you ar... Read more

Monthly weigh-in and thoughts on the past month.

Tuesday, May 04, 2010      1 comments

I weighed in at the doctor's office today during my appointment at 254, three pounds up from last month's weight. Am I disappointed? Maybe a little. Am I surprised? Not really. It's been a difficult month with two surgeries forcing an exerc... Read more

Back in the saddle again...I hope.

Monday, April 26, 2010      2 comments

It turned out to be way more difficult to come back here than I thought it would after my two surgeries. I have had the okay since Friday to exercise again but haven't yet done so. It was hard to convince myself to go back to tracking food as ... Read more

One surgery down, one to go.

Friday, April 09, 2010      2 comments

I thought I'd post a quick note here that I made it through my first surgery okay (the D&C). No complications, though I am very sore, especially in my hips/inner thighs. I have today off from work and the weekend, and I'm completely resting my... Read more

Today's weigh in and measuring.

Sunday, April 04, 2010      3 comments

Well, today is the day to step on the scale and break out the tape measure. All in all, it turned out really well. I saw a decrease in all areas. Weight - 251, down from 260.5 last month (274 starting weight) Waist - 41 inches, down ... Read more

Old new clothes and other updates.

Friday, March 26, 2010      4 comments

I am comfortably sitting in completely buttoned and zipped jeans that have not fit me in a really long time. Oh, I wore them up to six months ago, but they made me look like an overstuffed sausage. Lots of squishy stuff sticking out the top. ... Read more

Back from the gynecologist.

Tuesday, March 23, 2010      3 comments

Well, my gynecology appointment finally arrived. I do have some answers now, which is a big relief, though nothing really great. Even though I was armed with knowledge and knew what questions I wanted to ask about the dysfunctional uterine ble... Read more
