I dropped off the face of the earth

Thursday, October 25, 2012      3 comments

First my college roommate dies suddenly, then my dad died slowly. It has been a rough 96 days away and I have gained 18 pounds. A few days ago, I ran into someone who had lost 50 pounds in 4 months. I couldn't believe the change. He told me i... Read more

This is day 2 of the flu. Yesterday I slept or went to the bathroom. Today, I tried to venture to the Harris Teeter, but they called my husband to come get me cuz I was about to fall out. I am not tracking what I eat but it is not much. My hus... Read more

Hurricane Irene decimated my bicycle last year. The replacement parts have been on back order since then, so my husband took me to Tarjay yesterday and let me pick out a new bicycle! It is a Schwinn with ample seating and handle bars which can b... Read more

Definitely not starving anymore

Sunday, July 15, 2012      3 comments

For the last week I have increased my caloric intake from 800-1000 to 1200-1400. I expected the weight to come pouring off like hot butter from a steaming corn cob. But it hasn't worked out that way. I still remain over 200 pounds. I can blame i... Read more

Eat more to lose more

Monday, July 09, 2012      4 comments

The comments from my blog/cry for help this morning were overwhelmingly in agreement that I am not eating enough food and my body is clinging to the weight. I have been eating between 800-1000 calories every day. Tomorrow I am going to go out an... Read more

Unwanted pounds refuse to go away despite eating right

Monday, July 09, 2012      8 comments

I don't understand. I have been waiting and waiting for days to celebrate the great transition to the 190s and I can't leave the 200s. I am right on the cusp. I eat no more than 800-1000 calories per day, but I did cheat that day last week so... Read more

Depression and eating

Wednesday, July 04, 2012      6 comments

Depression is a symptom of Huntington's Disease that I struggle with, and I'll bet a lot of other non HD people struggle with it too. Before I started back with the Sparkpeople, depression was inextricably linked to excess food consumption for m... Read more

Despite all my determined talk, I let myself slip today. A bad thunderstorm passed through and left us with no power and we were bored and the trigger was an open box of chocolates that my son had. The box is a little lighter now, plus I went ... Read more

Too legit to quit

Saturday, June 30, 2012      7 comments

OK. Now I have accurately and officially lost 11 pounds. I weigh 201. It is my greatest short term wish to kiss the 200s goodbye forever and I can feel that this wish is on its way to coming true! The cravings I had for food have been replaced... Read more

Adding exercise

Thursday, June 21, 2012      0 comments

For the past two days I've gone to the gym and walked slowly on the treadmill for 30 minutes. It's not much but it is a start. I've been discouraged because I must have misread the scale before my last blog. It is not 202, it is 206. Still downw... Read more

Drops in a bucket

Sunday, June 10, 2012      2 comments

I was so encouraged by the comments on my last blog that not only have I persevered with my diet but I have mustered up the courage to blog again! I have lost 10 pounds since that writing. I have been doing some heavy gardening, but have not s... Read more

It is time

Thursday, May 31, 2012      3 comments

So I have allowed myself to be fat for almost seven years. I gained a lot of weight with my last pregnancy and just kept adding to it. I need to improve the quality of my life now instead of putting it off until tomorrow. Why? I found out I ... Read more
