The money you save...
Sunday, August 18, 2013      10 comments

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

Tuesday, June 11, 2013      3 comments

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

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
Sunday, October 28, 2012      9 comments

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
New Tattoo!
Saturday, August 18, 2012      7 comments

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

They had sweets at work and I skipped on them. I had already eaten my lunch that I've been trying to eat for the challenge, and so I didn't want to consume any more calories. I wanted to try them, but I didn't so I was good. I brought some home ... Read more
Back in my size 22 Jeans!
Thursday, April 26, 2012      2 comments

I decided to go into the closet and dust off my old jeans. I kept them not for skinny jeans, but just because I knew I would fit into them again. I do, and they are even a bit loose! When I started on Spark People, I was in a 26/28 size. I have ... Read more
