my story so far
I have always been a big girl. I was 100 pounds in kindergarten, 150 lbs in 4th grade, just over 200 lbs in 8th grade, etc. I was (at least) 340 pounds in 2008 when I decided to do something about it.
Long story short, I got down to 240 by... Read more
back again - help
I'm back to Spark. Please kick me in the butt. I'm back up to 314 pounds. Not acceptable!
I am so embarrassingly out of shape. I was as high as 350 pounds and as low as 240. When I was 240 pounds a few years ago, I was fairly fit. I was do... Read more
(Yes, I know I've been terribly absent from SparkPeople. This blog is not about that.)
I live in central NJ.
I'm obviously a bit inland, and just about centered between Asbury Park (north) and Seaside (south).

I haven't forgotten about SparkPeople, I promise. I've just been really busy with planning (and running) the Chinese auction for my animal rescue group. It was on Saturday evening, and it was a big success. Now I can breathe, lol. (Not literally... Read more
Photo to come later. Computer not behaving. Don't freak out when you see it, though, because I'm almost 30 points over my daily goal of 48. I only used 2 weekly though before today, and today is the last day of my week, so even using 30 today, I... Read more
Not in the best mood tonight, but trying my best. I said something about really hoping I lose weight at my weigh-in tomorrow morning while I was making my dinner (around 10:30pm), and my darling mother told me to "stop eating at 2am", then told ... Read more
This was the last day for our bowling league. We didn't actually bowl this week, just got the payout. Our team finished 10th and we got $150 each. It's a tradition for teams to go out to eat, so we did. We went to a new place that none of us had... Read more
Hope everyone had a good Mother's Day.
Here's one of our personal kitties (he has cerebellar hypoplasia) "reading" one of the Mother's Day cards, LOL. :)
This is... Read more
Happy Mother's Day, everyone (to those with two- and/or four-legged children). :)
Very happy to hear that one of our harder to place (7-10 years old, best as only pet) cats got adopted. He's such a sweetheart. Woo hoo. That made my day. Now... Read more
Regarding the comments on my other (two) blog(s), I have had my thyroid tested several years ago when I had the same problems. It was around 4.6 I think, and within the normal test range of .5 to 5.0, so doctor said nothing was wrong with it and... Read more
Taking photos for a change. Also, trying to go 1 week (starting today) with no diet soda.

pimp my...pantry? (p.s. - I'm back)
Long time, no blog. Still been around Spark, still writing on some teams and checking mail, etc., just no blogging or personal updates. That's going to change. Now. :)
As you probably know, in the last several years, I weighed as much as 33... Read more
I'm back :)
Hey guys. For anyone new and a quick recap, I started my weight loss journey in October 2007 around 330 pounds and joined SparkPeople in March of 2008. In 2010 I got down to 245 but stayed mostly around 255-260 until February 2011 when I started... Read more
current: dog, health, and upcoming 5K
Mostly health related blog as well as current goings-on. Just thinking out loud, mostly. Not particularly linear, especially towards the end. Be warned.
I started having fibro symptoms around age 13 or so, just over 3 years after starting t... Read more
another update (thanks and thyroid)
(This blog contains some medical stuff, so if you find having to pee in a cup TMI, then you probably don't want to read most of this, LOL.)
First of all, thank you so much to everyone who replied to my last blog and gave advice/opinions on ... Read more
