Seriously. That stuff has to be as addicting as heroin. I keep getting sucked back into drinking it and when I do I eat like crap and feel like crap too. My body hurts all over all of the time. It's become a serious problem with my mobility... Read more

Something snapped into focus this morning as I took my multi-vitamin and prepared my breakfast smoothie. Somewhere along the way in the middle of 2014, I forgot to take care of myself. The pressure and stress piled up and I just simply stopped. ... Read more

I had a great week staying on track and logged a full 7 days of healthy food choices, lots of water, and no diet coke. According to my calorie differentials, I SHOULD have lost 3.6 lbs, so imagine my joy when I stepped on the scale to see 5 lbs ... Read more

One month in and I'm down 14.6 lbs. This past week I haven't seen much movement but that is to be expected as hormones have me retaining water. I'm entering the final stretch on finishing my thesis (two weeks til my draft needs to be in ... Read more

I don't know what it is about January. It's always such a rough month for me. Of course some of it is that fact that its the anniversary month of my father's death--which was a very traumatic event in my family's life. And probably some of it... Read more

Continues to amaze me how hard I have to work to make sure I get over 5,000 steps a day. From my baseline measurements the week after Christmas I have doubled my steps (or more) to hit that 5,000 or more mark and I have eliminated the junk from... Read more

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

It's amazing how difficult it is for me to get just 5,000 steps a day--that's just half the recommended 10,000 steps goal! Wow, I have a long way to go from sedentary to get active. A couple of things I looked at starting yesterday inclu... Read more

The good news is that I'm on track. The bad news is that I wasn't for about 5 weeks from late July through the late August. I was putting in a lot of over time at work and had no time or energy to focus on me. That's always been a strug... Read more

3 weeks into this rededication and I'm still doing great! I've lost nearly 15 lbs so far and am really pleased with my progress. The goal I have set for myself is to lose at least 50 lbs total by my 39th birthday in October. This would place ... Read more
Still moving down!

Seriously, I never realized how important that scale was to me. Sure I'm a daily weigher--and I know thats bad--but having it never give me the same number twice truly sabotaged me! It was so frustrating. Loving that I can trust my scale now ... Read more

Each morning this week, I have stepped onto my new scale and been rewarded for staying in my calorie range and getting in a little exercise each day with a consistent drop of between .4 and .6 lbs. I'm anxious to see what my total will be in ... Read more

So, I was definitely happy to see that 5.8 lbs were gone when I stepped on the scale this morning confirming that time of day for weighin yesterday was a factor (I had Johnny Rocket's for lunch with a friend yesterday--yummy but definitely not s... Read more
