A day "Off"
Sunday, September 26, 2010      5 comments

I had SUCH a fun day yesterday.... and a fattening one! We went to the state fair... the home of elephant ears, corn dogs, cotton candy and funnel cakes! After a breakfast of Jack In the Box's grilled cheese sandwich (surprisingly around 350 c... Read more

I stole it from someone who stole it from someone else. ;) 1. Do you sleep with your closet doors open or closed? Either 2. Do you take the shampoos and conditioner bottles from hotel? No, I stay in cheap motels. ;) 3. Do you s... Read more

What a day! Got up this morning and went to some yard sales with my hubby and daughter. Then went to the Sausage Festival (a fundraiser for a local church). We played games with my daughter and got huge sausage dogs. Home for a bit, then off... Read more
Dr's diagnosis....
Friday, September 17, 2010      6 comments

So with the encouragement of my spark friends (and husband once I told him what was going on), I went to the Doctor this afternoon. EKG was essentially normal other than a very low heart rate. Sitting BP was 105/70.. a little low. The doctor... Read more
A little scared

I'm havng some minor health symptoms that are kind of scaring me. I have a complex medical history and am just frightened of more surgeries or scary diagnosis. I haven't mentioned any of it to my husband because I'm afraid that he will b... Read more

The last 36 hours have been rough. I ate horribly yesterday... actually only went over my calories by about 300 (MUCH better that I'd have thought), but it was the constant snacking when I wasn't hungry. It was the mindless eating and snacking... Read more

I'm exhausted tonight. Physically sore and tired. Sun and wind burned. And happy. Yesterday I spent 6 hours sorting yard sale goods with my friend for my mom's group charity yard sale. During which I tripped and fell carrying my 30# 2... Read more

While certainly no secret, I haven't discussed my recent life events here on Spark People much. Mostly because it's not directly applicable to my weight loss. But, in June of this year, I located my birth brother. We have spent the past coupl... Read more
Measurement time!
Saturday, September 04, 2010      2 comments

I first did my measurements on August 6th. Tonight I did it again. Probably wasn't the smartest thing to do while I'm PMS'ing (and up 2# since yesterday, but hey! Gotta do it sometimes!) AAaaaannnnnnnndddddddddddd....
....... I've... Read more
Tracking PMS/period is REALLY helpful!
Friday, September 03, 2010      2 comments

I've always blamed PMS for binges. But in all honesty... as often as I did that, I'd be PMS'ing 3 weeks out of the month, and then blaming my period the other week. HA! I call BS on myself. But now that I'm getting honest with myself, I deci... Read more

I'm having a good "diet" day! Weighed in to a 3# loss this week. 2 more pounds and I'm out of the 290's! Yay! I'm at 15# lost right now. In just less than a month. I'm good with that. My daughter isn't feeling 100% today. Likely just... Read more

I'm playing hookey from work today after such an awful day yesterday. Well kind of.... I still have my work phone on me and taking calls from clients. I just moved my out calls to tomorrow. I needed a mental health day. I was sitting her... Read more
What a craptastic day!!!

Seriously... today was awful. I'm a case manager for adults with chronic mental illness. One client may need to be re-hospitalized, one got evicted (and is 30 weeks pregnant!) and another lit a cigarrette without removing his oxygen. Yep! Ka... Read more
