Day #315 Fitbit Challenge
This weekend I was part of a Fitbit challenge and there were 8 people in it. I only know one of those people, through Spark. The challenge started off with me in the lead, because I got up and walked Saturday morning and took a long walk. I h... Read more

Now that I've r... Read more
Day #313 Saturday - Prom Day
This morning I weighed in at 200.2 lbs. That's .3 lb from Onederland and I have officially lost all of the weight (and then some) from last weekend's binge. Phew! I'm glad I'm past that rough spot. I'm really hoping to see 199.9 or less by M... Read more
This morning I was down another 2 lbs. I've now lost 4 of the 6 lbs I gained from last weekend's binge. It's good, but not great, since I already lost these same pounds not too long ago. I've stayed within my ranges all week and I've been get... Read more
Today was a rough day at work. I won't go into details, but let's just say that there are some really inconsiderate people at work who have no compassion for other people. In a nutshell, my reasonable accommodation request for a fragrance-free... Read more
Day #309 - Pulling Myself up by the Boot Straps
After my (mostly) disastrous weekend, I was on track yesterday. I had just over 20,000 steps and I stayed at the low end of my calorie ranges. I say that the weekend was mostly disastrous, because my husband and I took Friday off, and it was o... Read more
Day #306 & #307 -Two of the worst days since I started this journey.
Saturday, I ate over 3,000 calories. Yikes. To make things worse, I ate even more than that today. I'm so full and I feel so sick. Why did I do that? After 305 days of being on track, maybe having slight overages here and there, but nothing ... Read more
Day #305 - What A Great Day!!
Today my husband and I took the day off work and we decided to find a new place to hike. I've heard about this place, called Oneonta Falls, and we decided to give it a try. We knew it involved some wading through water, but we didn't realize h... Read more
What a day. If you read my blogs on a regular basis, you may remember me mentioning a temp who brought an essential oil diffuser to work. I have a fragrance sensitivity and get sick when I have to be around strong smells. Well, she's back this... Read more
Today I walked during my lunch hour with my coworker, but she doesn't walk very fast, so it's mostly just a casual walk while we chat. After work I had a bunch of pent up energy so I went for a jog. I jogged for 40 minutes straight and then I ... Read more
Happy Mother's Day to all of you moms out there! I'm having a wonderful day, thanks to my husband and kids. My favorite part of any holiday is the homemade cards my kids make. They are so creative and funny, and they are always making me laug... Read more
Day #299 - The pictures that started it all.
In June of 2015, my daughter and my niece both graduated from high school. As with any major celebration, a lot of pictures are taken. I try to avoid the camera when I can, but not really for major events such as a graduation. When I got home... Read more
What a week! I have been so cranky!
I'm starting to feel more upbeat. Maybe it's because the weekend is less than 24 hours away? I think it's also because I went to my weekly counseling appointment tonight. I've been in therapy for a y... Read more
I've had a rough couple of days. I let some things get to me and I was very emotional, and it was a continuous fight to not let the old habits of emotional eating get to me. I'm happy to say that I did not give in to old habits! I tried just ... Read more
Day #294 - I'm going to blog so I don't stuff my face
Ugh! I have typed, deleted and retyped this blog. I'm so frustrated right now and I cannot organize my thoughts and put them in a blog and have them make sense. So, here's a list of things that are frustrating me right now:
1. Trying to ... Read more
