Waiting for a cloud to lift
I am happy to report that I have seen some progress. I have been able to shake about 3 lbs. I think the next 8-10 lbs will feel like 20. My hope, however, is not to stall there, but push on for 25-30 lbs. I am trying to be honest with myself... Read more
Since the second week of January I have been making an earnest effort to lose weight. I decided to try making healthier choices, eat more nutritious smaller meals. I cut way back on evening snacking. I started exercising if only 30 mins 5 times ... Read more
Trapped in a time warp
It's very surreal to read through my posts from 2010-2011. I was going through a separation/divorce that changed the fabric of who I am. I left a piece of myself behind and got stuck in some of my coping strategies. Unfortunately the very strate... Read more
When can I stop starting over?
So, things are pretty much the pits right now. Where to start? This past year I have felt my anxiety creeping up around me. I don't know if I would say I am depressed, but for a few days at a time I am.
Being a mom, going back to full time wor... Read more
Time for some new goals
So I've been floundering since fall and it's time to get back to some weight loss instead of maintenance.
My first goal is to hit 179 by March 19th. It's just a little one, but it's a great way to show myself in back on track.
The next one w... Read more
Doing It for the Kid(s)
Part of the reason I have set out to get healthy in the past, is to completely ingrain new behaviours as habits which I can model for my children. Well, ... Read more
Slow and Steady? Trying not to stall.
Hello to all! I am happy I say that I am, overall, doing well. I've lost almost 70 lbs (counting the baby) since the end of my pregnancy, and I have just over 30 left to my ultimate goal. I have about 11-12 lbs to go to my pre-pregnancy weight. ... Read more
I thought I had made a blog entry when I came back to SparkPeople in March. I was going to come and give a much overdue update. As it turns out I haven't made an entry since 2012, so I am very very much overdue.
I've been losing on average ... Read more
Firing the Committee
Just a quick update from me. I am slow but steady. Staying the course. I'm on vacation right now, but I've been so embroiled in horse stuff that it barely feels like vacation. The good news is that I have another week still, and 3 more in Au... Read more
Another goal down
I woke up this morning to 148 on my scale. This was my June 10th goal, which I have readjusted to 147.
But annoyingly enough, I'm having a "fat day" today. I'm feeling less than svelte today and I got some pics of me riding that made me a... Read more
Medium term goals
I am happy to report that things are on track. I am traveling again this week. I ate almost nothing all day and had a slightly extravagant dinner, but stayed within my range. Tomorrow may be harder but I am going to try and fit in the gym.

Yoga and riding
Hi spark friends. This is a pretty rando update. Life is good. I'm pretty much staying on track and doing well. The scale is fluctuating a bit again, but since my TOM is due I'm not panicking. I've been pretty good about staying in my calorie r... Read more
Not much to report. I'm trucking along here, being pretty consistent with food and exercise. I went for a run yesterday evening.
My SLF is back and I have explained to her what I need in terms of support to do this. It helped that I got... Read more
Running with the soccer girls
A couple of my buddies came over for a run this evening. I set out to do 3 or 4 kms. I ended up doing 4.93 in 30 mins with 3 mins walking in there. Yikes. Who knew I could run that fast, especially after all this time off. !?!? I think I'll ta... Read more

This morning the scale welcomed me with 151 lbs!
Originally my short term goal was to get to 150 by June 10, but I have revised that to 148. I should also make a confession which I have made before. My scale is a little low. I think this a... Read more
