The last part of yesterday was nice... I fell asleep rather fast which is rare since 1. I have insomnia and 2. I took a late nap. I was up and down all night, then up at 7 (This is WAY early for me... I normally wake up around 11 am). Tried to t... Read more
Reclaiming my life
I have to get my life back. I'm sick and tired of being depressed, sitting at home all day either sleeping, posting on the computer and sleeping. I think I'm going to work on sleeping first, since I have new sleeping pills and I feel good when I... Read more

I had a semi-breakdown today. I was watching a show with Geo and he asked me if I remembered what happened to a character and I had no idea what he was talking about, even though we saw it together a couple weeks ago. My meds have wrecked my mem... Read more
I don't know how I hurt my left hip, but it's been bugging me for over a month. I went to the ER to get it checked out because it was getting worse. I'm almost screaming in pain and they give me Motrin!! I was pissed. I have it at home and it's ... Read more
Dust off my blog
This is my first blog in something like 3 years. I usually do my journals on another site, but they have changed so much it's hard to stay with it. I started on Daily Strength in 2011 and I have over 1,500 journal on there now but they changed t... Read more
The money you save...
I'm realizing just how much money you save when you don't go out to Wendy's and Taco Bell on a daily basis. I had enough money left over to buy a new recliner when our couch broke (gee, I wonder why?). I still have money left over! It's going t... Read more
This is what I look like today, at 228.2 pounds. I'm about halfway through my journey (I was a lot closer last year.. I got down to 208, but I started at 280)
I looked at that, ... Read more
Finally Day 1!!
Since I'm not going out tonight, today marks it as Day 1 without fast food! I did have a tea and a mini can of Pringles to tide me over, but I didn't go to Wendy's or anyplace else! I *so* wanted to. We went grocery shopping. I had a mini bagel ... Read more
500 fitness minutes in May!
I'm so excited! I hit 500 fitness minutes this month. A lot of it has to do with physical therapy since I work out for 60 minutes 3 times a week and then walk 20 minutes home. I'm still gaining weight, but today I was good and didn't go out to e... Read more
I got to get back on track!
I had an "ah-ha" moment today. I need to get back on track, and NOW. I used to weight 208 and had Onederland within my grasp. Then fast food came into my life thanks to me getting a car, and my weight has gone up to 226. that's 18 pounds! I'm st... Read more
I'm still on my plateau. I'm hoping that with all these new changes I'm doing it will get me losing again. I've been having stomach problems for months now (I have irritable bowel syndrome) and I haven't been able to get out too much. Plus I'm e... Read more
Me and Food
Me and food go back a long way. I have been chubby for most of my life, and then since college really piled it on. I got all the way up to 285 pounds. When I was in high school I was a runner and in good shape. Now I can barely walk a mile. It's... Read more
I went out and got a new tattoo today. It's my second. I got it in memory of my dad, who loved roses and Stephen King. What better to get done than the rose from the books? I like it. It might be a bit egg shaped instead of round, but it's done... Read more
New Record Times!
Yesterday I did a 5k in a new record of 85 minutes. That's where I wanted to be for the end of the month challenge, so now I just have to keep it up. I also walked a new record mile in 24 minutes. I'm so proud of myself. I just have to build my ... Read more
