Keepin' On Keepin' On
So I've forgotten how completely annoying it is to track each and every calorie you take in!
It's so easy to get out of the habit and once you do, it's just bad news. It's so easy to eyeball something and go "yep, that's green, I bet it's ... Read more
Where does my TIME go?
So tonight, I was supposed to have worship practice, which was going to be my oh-so-convenient excuse for not going to the gym, even though I've only gone once this week so far. In my defense, I was in the car 8 hours on Monday, and I did do som... Read more

Boating, Tubing, Jet Ski-ing and Sore Arms!
So my friend Jen's family has a lake house. And it's awesome. Every summer she gets a group together and we go up and spend a weekend boating, tubing, swimming, and driving around on her jet ski. Once we're all brutally exhausted we come back to... Read more

My Mii Lost Weight!
I've never been so happy to be considered "Overweight" before in my life! After months of my Wii telling me that my BMI qualifies me as "Obese" I weighed in last night with a BMI of less than 30 at 174.8 lbs! Making it the third. str... Read more
I'm not dead, really!
I was just sick for a little while... Then I went to Texas... and after that? Well, I've just been lazy.
Over the past few weeks, I've weighed in as low as 175, but as of this morning I'm back up to 176.4.
I have a treacherous history... Read more

So tonight, I'm dressing up and hitting the town with some college lady-friends of mine. We're all going to be clothed and made up to the hilt, and then head out to the Cheesecake Factory to turn heads and roll in Lauren's birthd... Read more
Bye Bye 180's, Hello Additional Jillian Michaels
WOO! 179.8! WOOOHOOOO!
I'm so excited to be back in the 170's at last. It's a familiar 10 pounds (deci-pounds? Decapounds? Pound-cade?), the same ten I've fought tons and tons of times before. But it's still good to be back, because that me... Read more
Under 500 Calories Chipotle!?
Yes it CAN be done!
Tonight I was having a serious Chipotle craving, so I decided to see if it were possible to bend the evil diet killer Chipotle to my soon-to-be skinny will. In fact, it is! And it can still be tasty.
Using the Calor... Read more
But I'm not allowed to Plateau yet!
176! That's supposed to be the freakout number that I can't get past without murdering myself on the eliptical for multiple hours a day! Not 181!
Granted, This weekend I was anything but well behaved. I charted my food on Monday night and w... Read more
Woo! -10! Yeah!
So today... 181.6!
Feels good to be down ten. :D Now here's to ten more!... Read more
Ah Well, maybe tomorrow, then :P
182.6 today. Just .6 pounds shy of the elusive first 10 pounds of weight lost. No worries though. I'll hit it tomorrow -- or maybe the next day, since I'm going for sushi tonight and that means Miso Soup which has a tanker load of sodium.

Dun Dun Dun... Another one bites the dust. :D
184.0 this morning! down 1.4 pounds! woo hoo!
That puts me just two pounds away from being 10 pounds lighter than I was when I started this adventure. Exciting stuff! If I can keep this up, I'll be at my goal weight this time next year. :... Read more
