Life sucks...partially anyway.

Tuesday, May 05, 2015      2 comments

My FIL passed away a little over a week ago. He was one day shy of being a full month into his diagnosis when he died. I am still in a sort of shock over it. We had four (yes...FOUR) services last week. It was just sort of a relentless sadness; ... Read more

Stress Overload

Monday, April 13, 2015      1 comments

I'm unbelievably stressed, and I don't know what to do about it. I don't even really know where to begin. To begin with, my FIL was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer a couple of weeks ago. He's going downhill fast. I have certainly ... Read more

I lost another 1.2 pounds, bringing my total loss to 9.4 over the past three weeks. (I started back on March 15-16). That's ALMOST 10 pounds. I'm really surprised and impressed that I'm actually losing weight, even though I've been so incredibly... Read more

So frustrated.

I can't escape stress. I just can't. Last week, my FIL was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. We haven't really had much to do with Husband's family in recent years, because, they're...well...crazy. They're just crazy. But we certai... Read more

I want to keep going...But HOW?

I happened upon this quote the other day on Pinterest, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. I can't even recall how many times I've failed (aka given up). I ... Read more

South Beach Diet, Phase One -- Week One

Sunday, March 22, 2015      3 comments

BOOM. Week One is DONE. I did really well this week. I kept my promise to myself and worked out all but one day last week (during the work week). I worked out Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday. I stayed on Phase One, but I did have so... Read more

Pre Day ONE!

I'm starting over again tomorrow! I'm going to do it. I weighed myself, took all my measurements, bought healthy food, purchased some new weight-lifting DVDs (I'm not comfortable lifting weights at the gym). My SIL and I are starting Phase One o... Read more

I used to be in such phenomenal shape. I was a gymnast. A swimmer. A bike rider. I was moving from the time I woke up until the time my head hit the pillow. I felt like my body could do anything. I was so strong. I really felt badass. I mis... Read more

Never felt like this before.

I am in tears. I weigh 236 pounds. I've gained even more weight, and I am currently not only the heaviest I've ever been, I am almost exactly TWO TIMES heavier than I was when I met my husband. I just did a little math on my calculator -- when I... Read more

I didn't go to the gym today, but I DID do something I haven't done in a long, long time: I WAS SOCIAL. I took Daughter to the animal shelter where she volunteers. My niece was also planning to volunteer today, so my SIL and I sat out... Read more

Thinking about trying again (again).

I think I may actually go to the gym tomorrow. I've been feeling so terribly depressed about my gains, and about my humongous weight in general, but I felt positive and optimistic this afternoon and evening for some reason. I know in my heart th... Read more

Gained again.

I'm 235 now. I've gained 5 pounds in less than a week. I start getting my period yesterday evening (and got it big time today) so that may have something to do with it. But STILL. I'm 5 pounds heavier than I was the last time I weighed in. ... Read more

I think I just might give up.

I don't even know what to say. I'm the heaviest I've ever been in my life. 230 pounds now. I just keep gaining. I know all the tricks and tips and do's and don'ts. I know all about taking things "one day at a time" and I know all about "making j... Read more

Frustrated and Annoyed...mostly with myself.

After we got out of school early today, Daughter and I just rested. We spent the day looking at old music on YouTube. I was sharing some 1990s dance hits with her (she's started DJing and is into all kinds of music). That got us watching/listeni... Read more
