One of the reasons I think I'm having such a high-speed initial weight loss is actually my caloric intake.
I'm actually having trouble meeting my goals! That's both exciting for me, and a little worrying. I've reached the point now where ... Read more
I dropped another 3.4 lbs this week! That's probably a little faster than is strictly necessary, but I'm overweight enough that I feel comfortable with it. It's not like I'm dropping 10 lbs in a week. ;)
So I'm down to 204.6. That's jus... Read more
This has been both a good weekend, and a bad one. The bad first:
I haven't exercised since Thursday. Labor day weekend just screwed up my routine, and I gave in to the loving "encouragement" from my husband to just "take a day off." After... Read more
I'm going ot go ahead and warn you... this is going to get a bit rambly!
I'm on week two, day 3 of the 5k Your Way plan, and I happily walked 2.3 miles today. I really felt like I could do a lot more. I took the day off yesterday, pretty m... Read more
My daughter went to preschool yesterday. It wasn't as hard for either of us as I thought it would be;she didn't even try to look back, and I wasn't sad, either. Instead, I was proud of her, proud she was such a big girl, hopeful that she'll be a... Read more
This has been so hard for me. I haven't been doing this seriously long, but I've felt so... bad about it. Bad that it's necessary, bad that I haven't gotten a grip on things.
But today... today, for the first time, I felt like I was doing... Read more
I've been frustrated because I couldn't quite drink my water for the day. I've been absolutely floating,s truggling.
Until my husband reminded me that it's supposed to be 8 oz glasses.
I've been drinking from 16 ounce glasses.

Yesterday, I actually stayed within my prescribed calories. On the high end, yes... but that's the first time since I started sparkpeople!
Today I'm trying, but I figure I'll probably end up going over. It's my birthday, and my husband i... Read more
I started out great. Well within limits, a little heavy on lunch, because I indulged in some chicken nuggets, but I stopped without going for seconds, and had carrots.
Then we ordered pizza.
I KNEW that I should have stopped at the s... Read more
I'm sitting here, sipping on my coffee (first cup I've had since i got laid off) and I suddenly started craving some cold water! That is the first I've craved water at all in... longer than I can think.
I had two glasses the day before ye... Read more
I've never done this calorie-counting thing before. I always scoffed at it as the crutch of the fat.
Well, I had to look in the mirror. I'm not exactly the willowy 0%-body-fat person I used to be.
I am overweight. I've had to accept ... Read more
Didn't do so well today. While I did go to the aquarium on a church trip with the kids, I sat on my butt all day, and gorged on chips and dip after supper... after overeating and I was still full. I ended up skipping lunch (not on purpose, forgo... Read more
I added a step counter app to my iPod touch. It's a really comprehensive one. They have a free version, but I upgraded to the $1.99 paid version since it's got a LOT more features.

I went for a walk! It's about a quarter of a mile to the store. Me and my oldest daughter walked down, did a bit of grocery shopping (made sure to take my reusable shopping bags), stopped by CVS on my way back, and now we're both sweaty and tire... Read more
Today, I started. Start small, right?
I did two things at lunch today. I ordered my usual, a Sal's special at El Sombrero, but instead of downing three tortillas stuffed to the gills and then mopping up every last drop... I ate one tortill... Read more
