I am proud of myself for...
I know I've said it in the past 3 posts, but things are different now. I'm on this. I'm doing it. I'm excited about it. I'm involved in it. I'm STICKING with it.
These are the things that I'm proud of doing and how I KNOW this time is... Read more
Well, it's been a few weeks, and I'm still going. The discerning part is that I haven't actually lost any poundage yet, but my body is reshaping. I can see that and definitely feel it in my clothes. I know that this is good for me and it will... Read more
Back again! This time for real.

A plateau already???
Well, almost another week down and I haven't lost anything since my last weigh in last Friday. Granted, when I weighed myself this morning, I had eaten more than my allotted calories yesterday AND a ton of salty food, so I guess I can see why. ... Read more

Taking a cue from Amethyst: My goals

4 days down...
Well, it's day 4. I have found myself to be pretty motivated so far.

Here I go again
Well, here I go again. I haven't been paying much attention to what I put in my mouth, and since I stopped paying attention I haven't gained much weight (only about 3 pounds over the course of 2 months or so) but I still gained. And this has t... Read more
