Wednesday, April 29, 2015      5 comments

I'm down 13lbs today! I can't believe it! One of these days I'll start taking my other measurements because I know my body is changing more than the scale is showing. Clothes are fitting better, and my belly just doesn't seem quite so bumpy. ... Read more

It's being noticed!

The scale and I have a love/hate relationship. Ok, mostly hate. I get on the scale and it's up or the same. So on days when I don't see the scale moving, it's really gratifying to hear..."Wow, you look great! How much have you lost?". ... Read more

It's November 4, 2014, and I'm forcing myself to face the music. I gave up. I quit. I have used lots of excuses to avoid dealing with my weight. Now, here I am, weighing 241lbs and feeling terrible. Not just emotionally terrible, but physi... Read more

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

Tuesday, September 02, 2014      1 comments

One of my biggest obstacles with my weight loss plan is that as soon as I'm away from my computer, my goals and plans are "out of sight, out of mind". I've recently had someone suggest I get tested for ADD, as I do tend to do that with a lot o... Read more
