UNDER 200 !!!
Today I reached a milestone. A BIG one. The evil doctor's office scale conceded and I am UNDER 200 lbs! I haven't been able to start with a 1-- for years! Well, I mean... my drivers license starts with a 1... but that's a whole other story.

New Year, New Successes!
I'm officially back in the swing. I'm back down at my low and I'm feeling good. I've been tracking all food for the past two weeks and it's going well. I am actually using the Lose It app. It's got a barcode scanner (which is really convenie... Read more
Stress & Anxiety! (yes, of course it's about a boy!!)
I'm sorry I've been so absent! I didn't completely fall off the wagon, but I've certainly distanced myself from it. I'm re-committing today. I am back.
Things have been a little wild for me lately - I started a new job last m... Read more
Did they make these seats bigger?
I went to watch Skull Session before the OSU-Miami game yesterday - last time i was there was November last year. I remember the experience as being a great show, but the most uncomfortable 2 hours of my life. First, air does not move in St. J... Read more
Holy Cow, it took 3 MONTHS!
After yo-yoing all over the map (and considerable slacking off), I'm down another 10 lbs to hit the big 5-0! I was so depressed with the constant fluctuating, but I stuck with it and I'm proud to say that I've spent the last month working out H... Read more
Back in the game after a month of slacking off!
I fell off the wagon, but I'm back. I actually didn't gain more than half a pound in the month I went MIA, but after 3 days at the gym (so far) this week, I know I've lost some muscle. I think the plateau that I had been stuck in for a month o... Read more
The BIG 4-0!
I've been flirting with the 40-lb milestone for a month and I FINALLY crossed it! I'm working out consistently, but the weight loss had really slowed down. It's frustrating, but people are starting to notice that I look different and I am stil... Read more
I SPARKED A FRIEND!
I have always heard that negative attitudes are contagious, but I'm learning very quickly that positive attitudes & successes are EVEN MORE contagious. A friend asked if she could come to the Y and swim laps with me today - of course I said yes... Read more
Doctor's Office Scales & Looking Back on 4 Months with SP
I don't know if other people do this, but I have a particular routine for weighing in. I use the same scale at the same time of the day (not always the same day of the week), but I have a process. Going to the doctor upsets my weigh in process... Read more

Celebrating Skinny Jeans!!
ok so the bad news quickly: I haven't lost a pound in almost two weeks, but I'm sure the plateau will pass shortly.
Now, the good stuff: I put on a pair of jeans today that have NEVER fit. I bought them for $4.75 on clearance at Target... Read more

30 Minutes on the Elliptical (the one with the arms!!)
I actually hit this milestone last week, but I kind of thought it was a fluke, so I didn't post until I was sure I could do it again!
I pushed through a SOLID 30 minutes on the elliptical last night and I'm really happy with myself today. ... Read more
25 lbs GONE!
I'm getting so close to the 25% mark!! I've lost 26.5 lbs so far! I can go longer and farther on a treadmill and the elliptical and I've got more energy to spare through the day. I have a long way to go, but even when I'm not on the site ever... Read more
