Fitting in exercise...
I have a crazy, busy schedule. I know that I am not the only one with this problem. Before I discovered Sparkpeople and became "DONE" being the fat girl, I let my busyness s... Read more
Sodium...it's getting the best of me!!!
So I am having a terrible time keeping my sodium levels in check. I work a lot, so I rely on a lot of prepackaged items - salad dressings, side dishes, canned veggies (even the reduced sodium kind) and even my turkey kielbasa has tons of sod... Read more
Oh my goodness...I'm getting teary-eyed again. My BMI is 41.9, which puts me in the Obese category. This might not seem like something to celebrate to a lot of people, but to me it is incredible! I have been in the Morbidly Obese category for s... Read more
Quarter of the way there...
I was just looking at my ticker and realized that I am almost a quarter of the way to my goal! I'm having a really hard time not bursting into tears right now, I am so happy. I can hardly believe that I've come this far already. After all the ye... Read more
It's 4:20 am and I'm at work, wide awake thanks to 2 large cups of coffee. I have been up since 6:30 am, worked 17 hours so far, and have managed to stay within my calorie range for the day. Usually I go over on Fridays because of my long shift,... Read more
Yesterday was our company picnic. I spent a lot of time over the last few weeks getting it organized, making sure people were bringing things and renting the covered picnic area at a nearby park (good thing too, because it rained all morning!).

Another loooooong Friday
It's Friday once again, time for my long work day. This has been an interesting week for me with weight fluctuations and eating habits. I had gotten down to 285, then went back up to 288. I didn't post anything about it, since I've been reading ... Read more
I set my alarm to get up early today so that I could add the Done Girl Dance to my morning routine. Since I was up anyway, and not dressed yet, I decided to weigh myself - just for the hell of it. I just weighed on Monday, so I figured I wouldn'... Read more
Holy Cow - I just used my afternoon break to do the VIDEO: Coach Nicole's Jump Start Cardio Workout. It's only 10 min long, and I did it at my desk (brought my tennies).
I was only able to do the basic steps, side-to-side and front-to-back... Read more
Last night I went Mall Walking with my sister and a friend. It was a lot of fun, but we had to detour around people a lot. My friend is about 7 inches shorter than I, so I had to shorten my stide considerably, meaning I didn't get as good a work... Read more

So I sabotaged myself yesterday- I was so excited, I had done so well all week, losing 5 lbs. Lunch wasn't bad, I had a chicken taco salad at the mexican restaurant, and luckily it had hardly any cheese on it, mostly lettuce and grilled chicken.... Read more
First real weigh-in since joining
When I joined SP on 7/8, I weighed in at 297.6, which went up to 299.9 after my out-of-town jaunt to my brother's wedding 2 days later. So this week I have focused on using the nutrition tracker, and getting back into the habit of exercising eve... Read more
Going to a wedding out of town
I just joined SP yesterday, and tonight I'm going out of town until Saturday for my brother's wedding. I don't think I'll have access to a computer during that time, so I won't be tracking anything. The wedding is Friday in Pasco, WA, but I'm he... Read more
