I Ate Bad Things and I Didn't Exercise Either. WOOT!
I had a slumber party last night. A grown up, pajama wearing, movie watching slumber party. 8 grownups and 6 dogs chilling out, having fun and eating junk food.

I'm Learning, I Really Am. What Have You Learned?
So far in this journey of 3-4 weeks I have had many opportunities to learn. I even bothered to learn on several occasions, fancy that. I don't mean to sound preachy, if I do, you can say shut up, ignore me, quit reading, etc. It's ok, I won't ... Read more

My toe hurts so bad that I can barely walk. I have an ingrown toenail (I self-diagnosed). It hurt some yesterday, today there is mega hurt and pus. No treadmill this morning, I'd probably fall off of it.

How Often Do You Weigh Yourself?
So the scale went from 293 to 300 in two days, leading me to have a bit of a freak out.

Things Are Truly Changing, Portion Sizes
Things have really changed. No longer am I chowing down on enough food to maintain 311 pounds, I'm now eating portions that someone who wants to be healthy would eat!

It Is Hard to Feel Motivated When... and PMS Gains? Anybody?
I went to the gym today, not because I wanted to, but by sheer force of will.

I Will NOT Fear Fitness, AKA Fat Girl Win!
Today was supposed to be my day off from the gym AKA the day I get to sleep in. So I slept in, went to work, then felt guilty because I hadn't worked out. That and I had a bounce on the scale (up 1.8 pounds BUT I usually weigh in the AM) and I... Read more
