Blogging out the frustration
In an effort to avoid getting discouraged and keep myself feeling positive, I've decided to blog out the bad feelings I've been having.
I tried Atkins for a couple of weeks, and I just couldn't handle it. I did lose about 8 pounds, but with... Read more
Joe's Jeans, here I come
I'm more determined than ever! My favorite pair of jeans are a lovely pair of distressed, petite, size 27 Joe's Jeans. Last summer, they were my go-to jeans. In fact, by the end of the summer, they were getting a little loose on me. Now I can bu... Read more
SparkPeople just works
I've recently come back to SparkPeople after dealing with some issues. I've put on a bit of weight since I left, and I feel so embarrassed and ashamed of that. But here's why I keep coming back. It just works.
Summer is coming up, and I ne... Read more
Knocked Down, but Not Out
It's been far too long since I was routinely on Spark. I've been embarrassed by my bad habits mostly, but I've also been very busy.
I've learned something from my time away. I may have lapsed for a while in working out and eating right, but... Read more
I've Been Bad
I'm wicked. And not in that gnarly New England kind ofway. I've been bad with my eating habits and my diet. I went on a very difficult vacation with my husband, kids and parents. Last year when we all went on vacation, I found out about my husba... Read more
And now I want to puke
It's been a tough few days for me. I haven't exercised, I've been eating mindlessly, and I really don't feel so good about myself. I'm falling into that depression that always leads me down the garden path to 220 pounds.
I met a guy at a wr... Read more
Why No Man is Worth Giving Up Your Dignity
I don't usually like to post all my business out here for the world to see, but I've started seeing a therapist with my husband, and I think some things are becoming clearer for me.
I won't go into a lot of detail, but my husband and I have... Read more
Purging the Old Me
I did something today that I haven't done in a long time. I cleaned out my bedroom closet. It's a lovely closet, when it's not cluttered with millions of clothes and shoes. It's got loads of space. You can walk right in. Heck, you can even get d... Read more
How I'm kicking RA's butt
I'm 34, and I have rheumatoid arthritis. It sucks. Big time. I've just made it through a two-day flare-up, and it's amazing how good I feel when I can move with a full range of motion and without pain.
I'd been having stiffness and pain, es... Read more
Breakin' 2: The Plateau Boogaloo
I don't want to seem ungrateful for the awesomeness that is the new body I've worked hard to achieve, but I'm sooooo close to my goal that I'm starting to get a teensy bit frustrated.
I have bounced between 137 and 138 for week... Read more
Clothes over food
I think I've turned a corner. Or maybe I'm replacing one obsession with another. I think I have a ... clothes problem.
For years and years (and I mean most of my life), I hated (no, that's not strong enough), LOATHED shopping for clothes. ... Read more
To Blog, Perchance To Not Stuff My Face...
It's a stressful, annoying day. Old Me (which, ironically, was the Young Me) would have assuaged my discomfort by heading to the kitchen and shoving anything remotely edible into my mouth. New Me is, instead, going to blog out these crap-tacular... Read more
Crazy Dream Alert!
I'm seriously thinking about taking this commitment to a fit lifestyle to the next level. I'm thinking about getting my ACT certification and becoming a personal trainer.
I gotta admit. It's been a dream in the back of my mind since I start... Read more
Warning: Extreme Bitchiness Ahead
Stress is bad for the soul, I feel. So strap yourself in. I'm about to get a lot off my chest.
This past year has been one of the worst of my life. I like to think I'm a good person. At least I try to do the right thing. I give money to cha... Read more
I feel like crying
But not in a bad way! ;D I've finally started losing weight again (hey! my last blog entry must've worked). I am officially at my lowest-ever weight. When I got to 140, I bounced up and down for a few weeks, and it was so frustrating.
Yeste... Read more
