Well, that's not what I expected...
Monday, September 12, 2011      0 comments

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
Weekly weigh-in
Monday, September 12, 2011      2 comments

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
The good and the bad
Sunday, September 11, 2011      1 comments

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
Milestones for me... and my daughter
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      2 comments

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
The first time I haven't felt bad about these changes
Friday, July 30, 2010      0 comments

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 floating away...
Thursday, July 29, 2010      0 comments

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. ... Read more
Yesterday was great, today will be good too

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
And today started out so well...
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      3 comments

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
Small steps... big eating
Monday, July 26, 2010      3 comments

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
Trip to the Aquarium = EXHAUSTED
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      0 comments

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. itunes.apple.com/us/app/

Whew! I'm tired!
Sunday, July 18, 2010      3 comments

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
So it begins

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
