Before I Lose My Nerve
Here it is, as promise! My before photos.
First of all, I'm nervous. I am shy by nature and I hate that I let things get bad. Honestly, I know that I've already made great progress. The more I work on myself, the more I realize that where I... Read more
Everybody Sees the Photos...Great!
Saturday I did something crazy. I let the gym take a photo of me in shorts and a sports bra and I paid money to join their twelve week challenge.
I fought it every step of the way. I had so many excuses that I’d be a rich woman if I were pa... Read more
Sometimes I Fail
Sometimes I fail.
Sometimes the InnerFatGirl wins. Actually, she's not really the "Inner" FatGirl anymore. She's more like the DevilFatGirl on my shoulder. She whispers into my ear that one bite of pie won't hurt or that it's okay to eat fa... Read more
Things I Can Not Change
Last night I had a small epiphany.
There are things I can change and things that I can't change.
I know, people say that all the time, but last night was the first time that it clicked with me.
Some things can be changed - your w... Read more

Losing weight is an emotional journey. It makes you strip away all your masks and the things you hide behind. And then it makes you see yourself for who you truly are, both mentally and physically.
Are you someone who gives up easily and ca... Read more
Surprise! From Yoda!
I met with Yoda on Friday. We had a heart to heart and he made me re-commit to my weight loss program.
Then he announced that he wasn't charging me for this session, but would be training me at either 8am or 9am the next day.
I blinked... Read more
I've had a rough week. Well, it's been longer than a week that things haven't been great for me.
So last night I decided that I'd had enough of it. My mood was an attitude that needed adjusting. So, I hit the gym, talked to Yoda for a coupl... Read more
Group 5K Soon With Special Guest, Yoda!
Yoda has agreed to run a 5K with me.
Not a real 5K, but in the gym on a treadmill. And not just one, but two. And maybe more.
I can't even tell you how excited this makes me. I know that I'll be beating my time with him there. I will ... Read more
The Skating is Strong With This One
Guess who went roller skating with Yoda last night.
You see, in addition to training me and my mom Yoda also works with my mom now. They have a company party at our local skating rink where I broke my leg almost two years ago.

I Know I Won't Fail
The only time you truly fail is when you don't try, right?
I'm making changes to my life. Obviously the first and most important is my health and weight. The second is my financial stability. The third is my relationships with other people.... Read more
Movie Theater Food Options Are My Enemy
Yesterday I didn't go to the gym. I worked 8-4:30 and then went to the Twilight marathon (yes, I am one of "those" people!) from 4:30 until 2:30 am with my family. There was no time for the gym. I decided that was okay since I could just switch ... Read more
Best Workout Ever!
I had the best workout with Yoda yesterday. Seriously. If all my workouts were like that, I'd be at the gym all the time.
I got to the gym in a good mood, which I think makes a huge difference anyway. I was actually early so that we could s... Read more
Take That, People Who Said I Couldn't Run!
The gym was empty. I walked through the doors, knowing that I was about to get on a treadmill and do my best for 3.1 miles and I loved that there were very few people there to watch me. Then I saw my mom. She goes to the same gym with me.
S... Read more
I Declare Saturday 5Kturday!
This Saturday I'm going to run/walk a 5K on the treadmill. I'm calling it 5Kturday. Yes, it sounds silly, but it has a nice ring to it!
Who wants to do it with me?
No, seriously. Who is going to do it with me? I don't care where you do... Read more
