It's Been Over A Year, but I Still Haven't Fully Adjusted Mentally
Sunday, July 18, 2010      9 comments

I just realized that I have been wearing "normal" sized clothing for over a year now. I made my first size 16 purchase in May of 2009, and in January of 2010 I got into a 10. I have gained almost 15 pounds since April of this year, but I am st... Read more

I want to lose 20 pounds this summer. That is the 10 I gained due to lack of sleep and stress, along with an additional 10. I can do it. I was so close to reaching my goal when life threw a big monkey wrench in my plans. I felt like ta... Read more

Yesterday I went to take in my recycling. At the center I go to, I have to separate the items by type, and put in them in these yellow trash cans. I had a full can of plastic, one half full of glass, and one a fourth full aluminum. I parked ... Read more

I am in a tough financial situation these days due to an unemployed spouse. He has been laid off before, it's not uncommon with his position (Quality Engineering Manager-Quality always seems to get cut first). We are in a situation that we hav... Read more

My weight is up a little. I need to bring it back down. I stocked up on healthy food today from my farmer's market. I went on a two hour walk with fellow local sparkers this morning. I am going to get my diet and fitness back under control. ... Read more
Fridays Haven't Been Good Diet Days
Friday, May 14, 2010      2 comments

I weigh myself nearly everyday on my Wii Fit. I have been staying at the same weight lately (which I am okay with, but it's not preferred). I looked at the scatter plot graph recently and noticed that Fridays and the weekend I go up, and the r... Read more

My daughter turned 9 yesterday. My friend and fellow sparker LILHLFPINT signed us up for the Revlon run/walk 5k (Thank you Mary!!!). It was my daughter's first 5k (mine too, but I have done a 10K and a half marathon before). My daughter told ... Read more
Hanging Out in the 170's
Monday, April 26, 2010      9 comments

I have gone up and down in the 179-172 range for the last few months. I think that is okay right now. I like losing, and some day I will reach that goal of 150. It just might not be right now. My life has been hectic and I have a lot of chan... Read more

It sucks losing weight during a major recession, especially when that recession effects my life personally. I have seen my lifestyle go down the last few years. It's at the point now, where I have an unemployed husband and I am working late ho... Read more
"Gaunt" really?
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      8 comments

My husband used a very unflattering term last night. He said I was looking "gaunt", and then expressed concerned that I was losing too much weight. I haven't had anyone use the word "gaunt" to describe me before, and I think I am far from "gau... Read more

I bought a tiny dress for $5 at an antique swap meet about a year ago. I told myself that when I fit into this tiny little dress that I was throwing myself a cocktail party to celebrate. The dress has the tiniest little waist. This morning I ... Read more
No Time for Dinner

Although I am not working the most ideal shift, I really like my new second job. It's a bit empowering to know that I can make enough to pay our big old mortgage. With my new job, I am leaving my house at 10:15 a.m. and I return at a little af... Read more

No Weight Lost In March
Saturday, March 27, 2010      9 comments

For almost two years, I have successfully lost some weight each month. This month looks like it is going to be the first month that is not the case. It's not over yet, but so far it's looking like I gained 3 pounds. I wasn't doing too bad unt... Read more
