My goal is to be at or below 188lbs by my next weigh-in on Monday, March 9th. As of March 2nd, I was at 190lbs. I’ve been having a lot of problems keeping myself motivated lately. Last Fall was just a terrible time, and my weight lose go... Read more

If you look for it there’s always an excuse. I don’t have the money, time, energy, I don’t know how, I have other things to do now….etc. No matter what it is, from moving to reading a book, there’s a million easy excuses a person can com... Read more

Right around the time that I was 12 years old, I was trying on Halloween costumes; I came out in a vampiress dress and my mother looked me over and said, “You look like a sack of potatoes.” Yes, I’d been called fat, ugly, etc before by the ... Read more

Hit 190lbs. Decided to buy my 1st Victoria Secret bra. My next goal is to be 188lbs by the 9th. That's when I get my DVD. I haven't decided what my next goal will be. Perhaps 180 or 177lbs. ... Read more

Lunch time Epiphany

Thursday, February 26, 2015      0 comments

I was doing my lunch walk today, which includes climbing to the 6th floor of my building twice, when it occurred to me, just how far out of my way I have to go every day to be active. My life, or should I say, the American life discourages acti... Read more

Eating until you’re full not until the plate is empty, what a concept.

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      0 comments

Today, I was eating my lunch, and about half way through I felt full. I actually had to stop and say to myself, “It’s ok, just leave the rest for tomorrow’s lunch.” I’ve been portioning out my food and watching the calories for a long ti... Read more

When did walking become abnormal

I spent a summer studying in Italy. I quickly realized why the Italians can eat so much pasta and bread and still be skinny as racks; nothing is built on level ground. Everything is up a 16% slope. (That’s only partly a joke, there rea... Read more

For the last year my 21 year old roommate has had an infected, ingrown toenail. Because she’s socially awkward and immature she has been trying to treat it herself, rather than going to the Dr. I finally got fed up and teamed up with her... Read more

In the past I fully believed that my eating habits where not that bad. Yeah, I ate too much, and yeah a lot of what I ate involved breads or pastas. But it wasn’t bad. In fact, in my opinion, because I was cooking it myself, it was so much he... Read more

My next weigh in is March 9th. That’s 3 weeks away. My goal is to be 188lbs by then. That means I will have to lose around 8 lbs. If I reach that goal, I will buy myself the DVD, “Dr. Who: Day of the Doctor”, (because yeah I’m a ... Read more

Setting the clock.

Friday, February 13, 2015      6 comments

I have a desk job and I get so engrossed in work, I forget to remind myself to stand up every 20-30 minutes. Well, I have a co-worker who found an elegant solution. He has set his phone to sound an alarm every 20 minutes. When he hears ... Read more

I finally made it to the gym this morning. I have been struggling all week to get to the gym, and every day I’ve found an excuse not to go. I kept promising myself that I’d go to the gym after work, which I know will never happen. But t... Read more

My diet has become, sickeningly, healthy. Granted I have a few days, like last weekend when I had Rubio’s and Jimmy Johns in the same day. But for the most part my daily diet is rather healthy; veggies, lean meats, and yogurt. I try to ... Read more
