21% of My Goal

Sunday, March 06, 2011      3 comments

That's right! I've achieved 21% of my goal so far. I've lost 18.4 pounds and have 87.6 pounds to go. It would seem that 87.6 is a bit overwhelming, and perhaps it is. So, today I want to focus on the 21% or 18.4 pounds lost since December 1,... Read more

A Life Now Focused

Not sure how to get back!

Okay, so I've been pretty disappointed that I've not lost any significant wait in the month that I've been on SP. So, I've been evaluating where I've gone wrong. I ... Read more

What gives???

Wednesday, June 09, 2010      5 comments

I have to admit to a certain amount of anxiety lately. Last year I weighed in at the heaviest I had ever been, 252 pounds. I knew when the scale blasted past 250 that my life was in jeopardy. I joined Weight Watchers online and lost 30 ... Read more

This journey is both exhilarating and frustrating. I have logged every morsel of food or drink that I have consumed since April 29 when I started this journey...the good (hip hip hooray), the bad (ooooohh) and the ugly (yikes...really?) Tw... Read more
