It pisses me off to work hard on a blog, only to loose the ENTIRE thing due to ONE word.
Wow. That sucks. It tells you "No Profanity Please" (which is fine), and then you hit 'back'...and your. entire. blog. is. g...o...n...e... The one you just spent an HOUR working on. And it was good. Motivational. Important, to you, an... Read more
The past several days have been amazing. My realization about not taking care of myself and my fitness being a form of abuse - it has rocked me to my bones. Not in a bad way, it makes me smile when I think about it. I am in control. A soft, ... Read more
I've survived a lot of abuse in the past few years. I fought it kicking and screaming the whole time, but it still happened. And only today, this very morning, did I realize that what I've been doing to myself isn't just 'not good for me', it ... Read more
"Hair Removal Don'ts" (for any gals who could use a good laugh)
Now, it's tough to make me laugh, but I was wiping tears out of my eyes the first time I read this (not my story, but we can all relate in some small way)...

Entering Phase III
Well. Here I am. After the toughest two-three weks or so, in the past six months or so, after a BIG fall off the wagon, and right on the heels of what seemed like some breakthroughs that weren't.

Do you ever feel like you just got mad at yourself in a healthy way and had a breakthrough?
I just posted this in a 'confess and move on' thread, and found myself getting ANGRY while writing it. At myself. But yet, releasing something...some blame of the world around me for being overweight...or...I can't quite put my finger on it. ... Read more
Hey Self, how about we try setting ATTAINABLE goals, yes?
Why, oh why do I present myself with HUGE goals, that are *technically* possible, but only if I do everything perfectly, and am the model of fitness, if the wind blows right, if I do not have a drop in energy, or a bad night of sleep, or a calor... Read more
M - Make short term goals (keep up with my workout plan.)
O - Out with negative thoughts (I'm NOT a fat person who wears smaller clothes!)
T - Think of why you want it (To help me gain the life I want and deserve.)
I - Imagine how you will... Read more
"How to be a Good Friend to an Infertile"
I didn't write this, but it was passed around between myself and a group of friends, all whom have struggles with infertility. I don't know about anyone else, but IF certainly added to my poor health and additional weight gain a few years ago.

'Sixteen in Eight', so far so good.
Feeling pretty fired up! Some spark challenge was to have a 'race' to see who could loose 15lbs by Christmas day, and I changed it for myself...I challenged myself to loose sixeen pounds in eight weeks. This is within reach for me IF I STICK T... Read more
When will my brain catch up to my body?
The psychology of being fat is amazing. It does a number on you. And it doesn't melt away with the pounds. So I'm learning.
At twenty-one, I began moving up from a comfortable size 13/14 (195ish) to a size 20 (267 at the top) over the co... Read more
Breaking my routine is bad.
Boy, oh, boy, when one part of my routine slips, it all comes crashing down. I thrive in my routine. Last week, it all started when I discovered something of interest in the internet and spent the next several days staying up too late on the w... Read more
