We had to put my cat to sleep yesterday afternoon. We've had her for 17 years, and she had always been a great addition to the family. It was really heartbreaking to see her so sick and weak, though. We had been trying to nurse her back to healt... Read more

Apology to my Bursting Belladonnas Family
This week has been really rough on me. I know I shouldn't put off exercising or eating right, but I can't seem to get myself to anything but sit in my room or sit on the front porch. I've had two anxiety attacks in the past couple of days, and I... Read more
I had my first anxiety attack today. Thought I was having a heart attack, which I almost didn't believe at first, because I'm only 20 years old. But I figured with my weight issue, it was possible. I told my mom about the pain I was feeling, she... Read more
This past week has been rough. I wasn't working out because of my surgery, and I was on spring break so I didn't have anything to do during the day. I feel so slow and lazy. I'm hoping that the March into Spring challenge is what I need to get m... Read more
I had surgery yesterday, and I'm not supposed to be doing a lot of moving, or I risk tearing open my stitches. Not a lot of walking, no heavy lifting, not a lot of stretching any muscles around the abdomen or hip area. I really don't like this. ... Read more
Created my own recipe today...
...it had a lot more calories than I thought it would, but it was delicious, and super filling. It was a breakfast hummus wrap. I used two tiny tortillas, hummus, 2 eggs, and mixed veggies. I feel really good already today, because I feel so acc... Read more
I'm an aunt. :)
My sister had a very healthy baby boy :) 8 pounds 3 ounces, and 21 inches long. They come home from the hospital today, and I can't wait. :) These past two days have been rough food wise, but I'm back on track. I may not lose any weight this wee... Read more
My sisters water broke around 1 am, so there's already been a lot of excitement here today. I don't think I'll attend my classes today, I really want to be here when my nephew is born. It's only 6:30, and I've almost eaten my entire days worth o... Read more
So my mom noticed my weight loss...
...and it feels really fantastic that she did. :) I haven't told her straight out that I've lost weight yet. I've mentioned it to my sister, but she always get's this look on her face(no matter what I tell her) that pretty much says "I'll look l... Read more
Large amount of stress today
Anyone know how to deal with an annoying pregnant teen sister with anger issues? I can't say anything to her without her freaking out on me, and apparently everything I do is wrong. I can't even slip on a pair of shoes that the girls in my famil... Read more
Even though it's been a pretty slow day, I made sure to work out before settling down on the couch. :) I even made a late lunch for my family, something healthy that they'll still eat. :) Going to spend the rest of my day doing homework. Only do... Read more
Weighed myself this morning...
And I've lost a total of 7 pounds! :) Two more lost than the last time I tried to lose weight. Let's just hope that I can keep this up without getting burned out! I've been super busy between school, work, exercising, and still squeezing in time... Read more
One Week Down.
I have to say, this eating healthy thing is great. I feel great all the time, I fall asleep without hassle, I wake up feeling refreshed, and though I can't see a physical difference in my weight yet, I always have a smile on my face. :) Somethin... Read more
