Ramblings and Positivity

Tuesday, September 16, 2014      4 comments

I just had a fun thought. So like many of us, I don't generally have very high self-esteem. I am self conscious and not happy with my appearance. I can look at a photo of myself and point out every little flaw while others tell me I look beautif... Read more

My September exercise challenge!

Tuesday, September 09, 2014      6 comments

I made up a little challenge for this month to get some exercise everyday and it has really motivated me, so I thought I would share it! Have you ever seen those Advent calendars that come with little prizes everyday? When I was little I rem... Read more

Treating myself like a child!

Tuesday, February 28, 2012      11 comments

Lately I've been feeling like this is NEVER GOING TO END. I feel like I have been on a diet for a thousand years, and this weekend I realized something needed to change. I've had more cheat days in the past two months then I did from January... Read more

Scale hate.

Sunday, January 15, 2012      3 comments

The scale almost learned to fly this morning. Out the window, that is. After two weeks of eating in my range every single day, and working out 6 days a week, I have lost a grand total of: .6 pounds. WTF. This morning I weighed in giddy ... Read more

Please don't call yourself fat.

Spark people can be a great motivator. One of my favorite things to do on here is look at the motivational spark pages and admire the amazing weight loss that I hope someday to achieve. Before and after pictures are always fun to marvel at, unti... Read more

Starting to live again.

Wednesday, November 30, 2011      2 comments

I haven't been on Spark in a longggg time. I remember when I was so devoted to using it everyday, I used to feel sad for the people who suddenly disappeared. Then I became one of them. Although I stopped strictly counting my calories around the ... Read more

Losing the spark

Monday, May 16, 2011      3 comments

Today is my last day of finals, and then I'll have my associates degree and be done with junior college. I've lost 33 lbs, which is 3 away from my half-way goal. And despite my extreme lack of exercise and terrible eating habits, I've still mana... Read more

Trip and fall.

Friday, April 15, 2011      3 comments

I'm so sick of counting calories. Honestly, it is a pain in the butt to come home from working and being in class for 12 hours and have to figure out every ingredient in my soup and then break down how much of each thing I used, and how many cal... Read more

My hips don't lie.

Saturday, April 09, 2011      3 comments

And neither does the tape measure. Although I continue to steadily drop pounds, my hips remain at a tight 45 inches. Actually, after my initial drop of almost 3 inches in my first couple of months, I've hardly lost inches anywhere in the past tw... Read more

P.S. Universe, I'm down 20 pounds.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011      5 comments

This blog is completely pointless, other than to celebrate hitting the 20 pound loss mark! Yayyy! I went into this mornings weigh in knowing that I only worked out twice last week (not even Jillian Michaels can hold my attention for a full month... Read more

So I eat mostly vegetarian anyways, but after watching about an hour of the documentary "Food Inc.," I'm getting rid of it entirely. I still plan to eat eggs and possibly fish, but right now I can't even look at beef, pork, or chicken without fe... Read more

Who made me fat?

Tuesday, February 22, 2011      2 comments

I decided to take some before pictures yesterday, even though I'm about 15 lbs lighter than my "real" before. I'm smiling in all of them though, so once I lose the weight I'm either going to have to smile even bigger, or edit them to make myself... Read more

My birthday was on Monday, and while I didn't plan to eat terribly, by dinner time I was ready for some cake. Unfortunately I apparently think my birthday lasts for a week. Wednesday I got on the scale and saw I'd gained two pounds. Unaccept... Read more

Woooahhh energy!!!

Saturday, January 29, 2011      1 comments

I feel like I could lift a car right now. I got a little pumped up about the exercise today and put in 80 minutes which equals 600 calories burned! Woohooooo! I think I have to say thanks to Jillian Michaels and "The 30 Day Shred" for kicking ... Read more

So sick of it...

Monday, April 12, 2010      9 comments

I am so sick of listening to my guy friends talk about how hot other girls are. Just because I'm fat doesn't mean I don't exist! The worst is when they talk about how cute our mutual female friends are... Don't get me wrong, I love being one o... Read more
