Holiday parties can be the WORST. I'm at my office, and today we did a small holiday party. We started with donuts. I like donuts. I have specific tastes in donuts (I don't like them ALL) there is still one of the kind I like left.... Read more
Starting over

I'm tired of it. Why on earth does it happen, and HOW do I let it? I think I've got a decent handle on things, and for some reason, I need to take a day off, illness, whatever. And I let it turn into TOO MUCH time and I start binge eati... Read more
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

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

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

Want to know the reason you fail? You. The reason I fail, it has ALWAYS been me. Why? 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

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

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
Unpretty
Friday, July 15, 2016      16 comments

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

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
It happened.

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

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
