Though having pneumonia was decidedly unpleasant, I'll take what I can get. This morning I stepped on the scale for the first time in a couple weeks to find...123.6!! That's a new low for me! I'm so excited. Being at home for the holidays can be... Read more
Okay, it was Thanksgiving. it happens. Now I'm ready to start anew. I've discovered both how easy and how difficult it is to be healthy at college. I'm going to take advantage of the former and conquer the latter! I weighed in at 129 this mornin... Read more

Back on track and ready for swimsuits
Wow. What a fall. I'm up like 7 lbs. Mostly because of all the end-of-year stress, final college visits, parties, etc. I'm hoping that now that my life is more stable and decided (going to Yale!) that I can focus again on my health. Which is why... Read more
In the 120s!
Wow! I was expecting negative things from today's weigh-in. I haven't been active all week and my eating hasn't been that great. But lo and behold, 129.6! Hot damn! And my measurements are all down. I'm going to be having an incredibly active we... Read more
Juice goes Veg
Woooooooooweeeee!! 132 today!! Ok, some of it is probably muscle mass because I've been so busy this past week (aka, not enough cardio), but I'm excited nonetheless. That means a new pair of shoes for me!
In other news, I'm becoming a veget... Read more
It's working so far...
Woohoo! I weighed in at 133.2 today! The lowest number I've seen yet. And this is after a week of eating in the upper part of my calorie range and exercising only 3 times. Maybe it's too early to say this, but I think relaxing my plan was really... Read more
Stretched Too Thin
Alright. Another lesson learned from SparkPeople. I am stretched too thin. My entire Spark experience has been about trying, messing up and learning from that mistake. The whole one step back, two steps forward. Well, this time I've learned that... Read more
Wow! How'd that happen?
So last night I was changing into my pajamas, and I looked in the mirror and I looked very noticeably smaller! Especially my waist. In the course of one day, I shrunk! Of course my first impulse was to run and go weigh and measure myself, but I ... Read more
Weighing in on Weigh-Ins
I've been pretty wishy-washy with my weigh-in schedule. Once a day was never an option because the scale is in the basement and my parents would see if I was going down there everyday, and weighing yourself everyday when you're a teenager is aut... Read more
Did anyone else not know that the adjective form of the word Lent is Lenten? I think that's cool.
Anyway, I am not a religious person, but I happen to like the idea of Lent. Good excuse to give something up, right? So this year I'm giving u... Read more
Two steps forward.
I don't' have an official weigh-in until Friday, but I'm fairly sure I gained weight during my camping trip. It was hard with all the "non-diet" versions of food, and the cold, and seeing everyone else chowing down. However, now I'm back home an... Read more
My first plateau?
Alright, today was weigh-in day, and I'm still at 136.6. I'm not at all discouraged, though. I love how I look at this weight. It's the lightest I've been since...since I stopped growing, I suppose. My BMI is down, so that's positive, and I've ... Read more
Back on track!
For a while this week my weight had been up, at one point to 137. But now it's back down to 134. I chose not to adjust my tracker because seeing that it said 134 was a motivation. I have to admit I was pretty annoyed with the scale. I had still ... Read more
5 foods I've fallen in love with since starting SP
1) Whole wheat English muffins. No words can express my love for these little pieces of goodness. *swoon*
2) Smoothies. Not the Smoothie King type where they're all icy and cold, but your basic fruit+milk/yogurt blends over ice. Scrumptious.
