So, today I am toying with the idea of going grain free. I've thought a LOT about changing my diet to cut some thing outs (not entirely, but at least to cut waaaay back on them). I've always, ALWAYS known I need to cut down on carbs and sugar. M... Read more
A little more complaining...
Welp, that's it. I'm just making bad choice after bad choice.
I'd say I'm not motivated, but I'm always hearing advice that says that isn't true. Of course, I'm motivated. But for some reason, I just keep making the *wrong* decisions abo... Read more
It's starting to get a little scary.
Whew. I. am. struggling.
I've had two major, unplanned pig-outs this week. I've been so HUNGRY!
Honestly, I'm scared. I'm at that point I always get to in my weight loss where my body decides to go into lock-down because it's afraid... Read more
The Woes of a Bad Weigh-In
I can't lie. I'm upset.
Things were going along so nicely, and then today, three weeks after my last weigh-in, I step on the scale to see a 4 lbs gain.
Granted, the last time I weighed myself, I had just had the stomach flu, so I was ... Read more
A little pig-out
Tonight I slipped up for the first time (unplanned) in a while. I just couldn't get the idea of MORE food out of my mind. So, I had a serving of chips... And then I had a serving of yogurt with strawberries... and then I had another serving ... Read more
Coming along nicely...
So a minor update. I definitely don't post like I used to, but I suppose I've found I don't have nearly the drama I once did, so I don't really need this as an emotional outlet anymore. Isn't that weird? For once in my life, I feel NORMAL!

Falling down on the blog...
So, I haven't been keeping up with my blogly duties, and for that I apologize. It just hasn't seemed as important to me lately, and honestly, the blogs would be boring. My incredibly dramatic life has dwindled away to nothing since finishing g... Read more
The difference this time.
Isn't it weird when you just start something unplanned and it sticks?
I made a few commitments these past couple months where I said, "Ok. This is the date I'm going to start tracking food," and they never worked out. Something always got... Read more
Weight vs. Health
Honestly, I don't know if I'll ever reach a "goal weight" and stay there.
I've been reflecting a lot lately on my relationship with food. It seems much healthier right now than it is when I'm "dieting" or binging, so I guess I'm comfortabl... Read more
How to keep tracking in check
Hmm... So I haven't been on much, but here's what I'm thinking.
I want to track calories. I know it works and is effective for weight loss.
Here's the issue: I don't want to become obsessive about it. I don't want to have to think ... Read more
Wow. Long time no see! Let me do the cliff notes of what's happened to me in the last couple months.
1) Got a kidney infection and pneumonia
2) Moved into my new house
3) Started eating better but still not tracking
4) Got a kit... Read more
The Commercial Challenge
So. I am majorly working on trying to keep it together.
My eating has been abysmal. I haven't been on a scale in a long time, and frankly, I'm terrified to get back on it. I have no doubt I have gained back all of those 15 lbs. I lost. ... Read more
Plans, plans, plans.
I am working out. I am working out. I am working out.
So yes, I am working out. I'm doing what I can and just marking time until this living out of a hotel room and at my parents' house experience is over. I am learning that I cannot st... Read more
Thoughts after a short sabbatical
I have definitely been MIA lately.
It's mostly because I'm just doing the same things over and over again, and I'd rather not continually complain about something I don't plan to do anything about! So, here's what I am doing:
1) I'm ... Read more
I miss my husband.
He's in Atlanta training for the job in Chattanooga he's about to take. Missing him made me start thinking last night about what I've learned about myself so far in my SparkPeople journey.
Because I already know I'm... Read more
