Size doesn't matter... does it?
It is so funny. I have wanted to get to a specific size since I started losing. It wasn't so much "weight" that I wanted to be but a size.
Yesterday, I pulled a pair of pants from my closet and wore them. I was so happy, because they (l... Read more
Why didn't I do that BEFORE? Silly.
All right. I know how we are supposed to weigh in. Naked, after waking, after using the restroom.
I know that.
However, for the last few weeks (months even?) I have to poop in the morning, so before I weigh in, I drink about a liter ... Read more
Am I that person? Can I be that person?
I had a doctor's appointment today. Nothing serious, just have this thing I have to have removed.
Luckily, I had a checkup a few weeks ago.
So, as I'm sitting with the nurse who is taking my basic medical history, she asks if I have b... Read more
Scared but hopeful
Well, I'm starting to feel better. My joins that were achy are less achy. My neck is less stiff. Well, less painful. Trying to describe this kind of stiff neck is the weirdest thing I've experienced because it is uncomfortable and painful, b... Read more
Failure versus success
Want to know the reason you fail? You.
The reason I fail, it has ALWAYS been me.
Is it because failure feels more comfortable than success? Hear me out here.
Failure, we know what it is like, because we feel like we ... Read more
Life and other things
Well, after the most stressful Monday, I kept figuring things out.
1) I'm very close to my goal weight, and because of that, I've been getting a little too lax.
2) I have an illness that I have to fight.
3) Nutrition will help BOT... Read more
Stresss stress and monday... Can I have a do over please?
Ugh. Yesterday was one of the worst days. Just period.
So I have Lyme disease. There is some pain and some symptoms that aren't enjoyable, but it isn't that bad and I'm on antibiotics, so I'm praying that I can quickly heal. It could ha... Read more
Since I've started to realize where some of my binges seem to come from (thinking I'm fat) I've really started to delve into my feelings. WHEN did I start REALLY feeling fat. Not the skinny girl in high school who would say it and wonder, but ... Read more
So, I have a fitbit. I've talked about it. The calorie estimation on the fit bit and the SP estimator don't entirely mesh. I don't sync it, because I feel like by tracking on spark and following the fit, I do a good job of finding a healthy b... Read more
It really was a shock to me.
Here I am, healthy, strong, really enjoying how I look most of the time, and honestly, pleased with my hard work, when BAM!
I felt fat.
If you read my last few blogs you can figure out why, but I'm sti... Read more
Feeling less than
I believe I figured out what hit me for my back slide.
I was pretty stoked at how I rebounded, but I need to get to the root of things so that I can hopefully stop them from happening.
I was feeling awesome about myself, and then we we... Read more
And I'm kind of relieved.
I really screwed up.
I was on point at the start of my vacation. I worked out, ate right, did great.
The last day however, I broke all of my rules. I bought junk food at every gas station to snack on in the car, w... Read more
Losing, maintaining, and living
I've never done this well.
I've never made it this far.
I've been this weight before, but not this fit with it.
Life has been unexpected. (isn't it always?)
Here are some things that have changed about me.
I gave up on t... Read more
Baby steps toward moderation
A few days ago I posted about enjoying less that a serving of chocolate and then going about my day.
I'm still kind of stunned I was able to do that.
However, I'm doing more! Yesterday and today, I did it again!
I had a serving size of my ... Read more
Taming the sugar beast?
I don't usually do two blogs in one day.
But as you know, I've been craving chocolate.
Or if you didn't know... FYI, I've been craving chocolate.
It has to do with my special time. (calling it that just cracked me up)
Regar... Read more
