It's been awhile...
and a lot has happened, but I am losing weight and staying on track.
I have been seeing a doctor for awhile now who is helping me with my weight. Unfortunately, this doctor makes me use an app/website that is different than this one.
I ... Read more
Going back on meds...
Well, it's been an extremely trying few months for me that has continued to slowly decline.
A year or so ago I weaned off of anti-depressants. I had been on them for 12 years and, for many reasons, I felt like it was time to try - so I did... Read more
Lost 2 Pounds
I did manage to lose two pounds - actually, I lost one pound last week, I just forgot to put it up - so that still averages to a pound a week.
I'm still struggling. Can't get my thoughts together. I'm going to take some time today and go t... Read more
Fear of Losing Weight
I think I've figured something out about myself. I've thought about this before, but I can't deny it anymore. I think that somewhere deep down inside I am afraid to lose weight.
Does this sound stupid? Does it sound like an excuse? Maybe, but... Read more
I've come to far to go back now...
The 5k was great, awesome, fabulous, but what have I done since that time two weeks ago? Nothing. Well, not nothing completely. I've eaten... a lot. I've overindulged, filled up and stuffed myself.
Really? All that hard work just to turn back... Read more
Never thought I'd do it, but I did!
This morning I did my first 5k.
I was slow, but I did it. I set a goal of finishing in under and hour, but missed that goal by six minutes. That's OK, I did it.
I'm not a runner by any stretch of the term, but my son talked me into r... Read more
For accountability's sake...
Just wanted to put it out there that I'm changing my weigh in from Saturday mornings, to Fridays.
I know that's not big news, but if I don't make it a "statement" I'll just waffle and go back and forth to whatever day weighs less.

One pound drop
This week - 1 pound again.
Just as I was getting comfortable losing one pound a week, I had something happen that shook my ability to celebrate.
I cheated this week. No, not with food - with the scale.
On Thursday it said I had lo... Read more
Fighting My Way Through The Week
It's been kind of a rough week.
Partly because of kid issues and partly because of sickness.
The other day I was hit with some major nausea and thought about working out anyway - I read somewhere you should only skip a work out if you h... Read more
One pound this week. No whining from me. I really was afraid I'd gain.
In honor of losing my one pound, I will post the reminder below (again) to stress that each and every pound lost is important.
The truth is, I'm seeing numbers on ... Read more
Gotta be honest...
because if I'm not, the scale will be - it's been a long hard week.
I've definitely done some stress eating. Hard for me to believe that all but two days I stayed in calorie range - though the other days I was at the very top of the range.... Read more
Dairy Queen - oh my!
My son asked me if I'd take him to Dairy Queen tonight. I thought I remembered they have some type of frozen yogurt so I went. When I got there - no go. No FroYo. I looked around and saw that the only thing I would be willing to try was a light ... Read more
One pound... again
OK, for two weeks in a row I've lost one pound. Do you know how badly I wanted more than one pound? I'm sure you do. My husband has been working on this new lifestyle thing with me. Since we have restarted, I've lost about 7 pounds and he has lo... Read more
OK, I'll admit, I'm a bit frustrated. I went to the gym five days this week (5 cardio added with two day of strength training.) I'd be lying if I said I wasn't hoping for more.
There are two things that come into play. Last night I ate she... Read more
Boredom During Workouts
I can feel it already, I'm starting to get bored during my work outs. Please know that I cannot do a lot of things right now. I'm still beginning.
I have switched it out a bit with how much time I spend on the treadmill and how much time I sp... Read more
