My Health Risk Appraisal
So yesterday I received my Health Risk Appraisal in my inbox from a wellness fair I had recently attended at work. I had been excited to see it because I thought I was doing fairly decent overall, and I expected numbers to be much better than th... Read more
Time to Start Again
Every time I start again, I feel so disappointed in myself for having to write a "start again" blog. At least I don't give up trying!
I was doing so well this spring and summer. I got down to my lowest weight since probably middl... Read more
Binge Eating or Bulimia Nervosa?
I have had an interest in eating disorders for many years now. I think it started when I found out that Karen Carpenter died from a heart attack after struggling from anorexia nervosa. I think another one of the reasons for my interest is that I... Read more
Happy Easter Post!
I just realized it's been a little while since I updated everyone here. I just got back from a nice visit home for Easter break, and I am recovering quite nicely from my wisdom teeth surgery, I am happy to say. No dry sockets, thankfully!

Not as wise as I used to be...
On Saturday morning, I had my two wisdom teeth removed. I was fortunate that the other two teeth never developed, and that the ones that I had removed were both on the left side of my face. It hasn't been bad, but I can't imagine getting all fou... Read more
Slim to Win Challenge Results - Hello Goodbye!
Our last weigh-in was a week ago, and FINALLY today we found out the results from the town weight loss challenge! I came in second overall with 18% weight loss. The guy who won had 20%. But I still received $100 for getting second. I was pretty ... Read more
I think I did a good job today recovering from my binge last night. This morning I wasn't very hungry, but I didn't want to start my day with nothing in my stomach, so I ate an orange (minus one piece that fell on the floor). For lunch, I had c... Read more
One Really Good Day, One Really Not-So-Good Day
Yesterday was great! At 6:30 a.m., I went to the hospital with two other weight loss team members for our final weigh in. The scale read 134.8 for me! Definitely not low enough to take the gold, but almost a 30 pound loss overall. I couldn't be ... Read more
One More Day!
I'm probably way more excited than I should be that the final weigh in is tomorrow! And by final, I mean final for the weight loss challenge I'm participating in. There will be more of my own personal weigh-ins to hold me accountable.
I've ... Read more
What Happened Yesterday
I almost wrote this post yesterday, but I thought two posts in one day might be a little much. But after my last post, about how tired I was feeling, I wanted to share how I got my energy back.
So to re-cap, I woke up yesterday morning, had... Read more
Lightheaded & Tired
The last couple days I've been feeling pretty tired and even lightheaded at times. I'm making sure that I am eating an appropriate amount of calories (I even ate 200 more than I had planned last night to hopefully prevent feeling lightheaded tod... Read more
OK, bad news first, because I like saving the best for last. I went to the dentist today for the first time in probably five years (I know...way too long) and I guess I paid for not going more regularly because I have to get both of my wisdom ou... Read more
Home Weigh-In Results (Unofficial)
If you are just reading my blog for the first time, I have two weekly weigh-ins that I track. My Sunday noon-ish weigh-in is for my personal records. For now, I'm not tracking it on SP. My official challenge weigh-in is on Monday, usually around... Read more
Confessions of a Scale-aholic
Hi, my name is Jenny.
And I have a problem.
I'm a scale-aholic.
I'll be the first to admit it. I am rather addicted to my scale. I can't even tell you how many times I weigh myself each day. And yeah, I've heard all the arguments ... Read more
Two Month Pictures!
Today was my two month photo anniversary (not quite the anniversary of the challenge...that started on the 20th). Before I share some pictures, here are some numbers:
In two months, I went from 160 lb to 141 lb.
In two months, I lost 3 in... Read more
