I put on my big girl pants, and posted some photos!
So now eeeeeeeeeeeeveryone (who is aware of my spark page) can see the greatest shame of my life. (Dramatic!...oh, but sadly true.)
Like I said before, I was a big old coward and cut my head out of the photos...but hey, baby steps. I'm sti... Read more
Ahhh, I feel better
Totally blown-out-of-proportion non-crisis averted!
After about a week, I'm back down to what is my new "normal" weight. I guess somehow I'd put on a lot of water weight suddenly, and needed a week to get rid of it? I still don't really kno... Read more
Spinning that silly wheel is the only reason I logged in today
And THAT is the brilliance of SparkPeople. I love playing games and scoring points and all that, and SP totally appeals to this part of me. The reason I initially became more invested in the site and started reading more articles, taking polls, ... Read more
Drink your water and be careful in the heat!
Ugh, I am a bit annoyed. I know better than to procrastinate the morning away and then end up going running at 12:30pm on a hot day. I know to drink enough water.
Nonetheless, I had a day off from work today so I went for a run, figuring th... Read more
Apparently I have no solid idea of what I look like at any given time
I'm in a rambling sort of mood, so apologies in advance.
I guess I'm one of those many, many people who don't really understand what their body truly looks like. It's so weird, though. I can see myself in photos or mirrors. I can read the s... Read more
Good run today!
I'm trying to learn to run faster.
I run super slow, at least when I'm outdoors running around the neighborhood. There are lots of hills, so I feel like that's kind of an extenuating circumstance when it comes to my speed, but still. SLOOOO... Read more
I apologize for the probable TMI, but I'm feeling energized today...
...and it's entirely because I bought some new undergarments yesterday, and let's just say I'm feeling a lot more support now!
I am utterly taken aback by how amazing it feels to have proper support for your chest. Since I started losing we... Read more
I got a drive-by"Hey baby" for the first time in years
I know this is so un-feminist of me, but it was still kind of nice (in a weird way) that some dude in a van drove by me while I was walking back from my lunch break today..and leaned out the window to say stuff like "Hey baby, looking good," etc... Read more
Work + weight loss = ?
I have nothing of any real substance to say; I just need to write out my current thoughts a bit because they keep rattling around in my head and it's just left me feeling weird. Transitioning to full-time work has been kind of odd for me with my... Read more
Let's recap so I can bask in the positivity of today!
* Lovely weather - sunny, warm but not hot, a nice cool breeze at times
* Super-easy day at work
* I've eaten really well so far today, and my dinner is going to be equally hea... Read more
Thrown a little off track by the new job
So I *finally* started my new job - the first full-time work I've had in YEARS, what with grad school and part-time temping to try to break into my area of interest.
It's exhausting! I don't know how everyone else who has been working full-... Read more
Eulogy for 60 Pounds
We are gathered here today to witness the passing of 60 pounds, and to remember them.
Ah yes, remember all the good times those 60 pounds shared with us?
I remember when they held me back from hiking as far as I wanted to with my husba... Read more
"Stolen" from TamiK - my weight loss story!
I came across a blog today by TAMIK1964, and I really liked it because I love self-reflection. I find it so helpful and motivating to consider where I came from, where I am now, where I'm going, and the reasons for my journey, so I'm basically g... Read more
Confession: Yesterday was bad
And it was entirely a result of the poor choices I made despite being fully aware that they were poor choices.
I've had sort of a mundane journey losing weight veeeeeery slowly, so normally I like to post about successes, or things I've lea... Read more
Uh oh...here comes the Candy Monster
I have access to $25 worth of free chocolates, and I am so, so torn.
My husband gets rewards through his employer sometimes that come in the form of those general gift cards that you can use to then acquire more specific gift cards for spec... Read more
