I'm not sure how I feel about that!
I've bemoaned the fact that I am at my highest weight ever for a while now, as I watch the number only get bigger. I gripe about how I can't fit my clothes anymore. I complain about my lack of...everything...energy, sleep, motivation, happy. ... Read more
It's always best to start at the beginning...taking the first step on the yellow brick road TODAY!!
Rubbing the sleep from my eyes, I find myself in a field of poppies. Victim to the sweet, languishing spell of love, I allowed myself to linger, to take it all in, and to float along in the river of contentment. Too long spent doing naught but... Read more

I have actually surpassed even ... Read more
And now for something completely different
My new year rolls in with it's typical sunny outlook and collection of pollyanna goals. Nothing wrong with that, and I will of course work towards them with vigor and a smile (even if it may be forced at times).
My fitness goal is to just ... Read more
Here's to hoping
Ok. So here I am, above my starting weight, at the heaviest I have ever been. And while I am thrilled that I was so successful losing the weight, and learning (I thought) life-style changes, it is clear that perhaps the road I took the first t... Read more
So THAT is what I am doing wrong...
So I've been eating around 1000-1200 calories a day, and exercising off around 600-900 calories a day three or six times a week. I figured, the more calorie deficit, the faster the weight loss would be. And while I did lose weight, I've recent... Read more
I think my dieting and exercise might just be starting to work their way to becoming lifestyle alterations. When I was out to dinner with Jen, I didn't want soda. I ordered sparkling water, and was very happy with it. Though I thought the cur... Read more
goals, dreams, hopes, aspirations
Looking at the goals I set when I started, I realize that I met all of them! Sorta. I don't fit my clothes, but that is because they are too big now, woo hoo, kinda. I've found that some of my favorites have to go bye bye, due to not fitting ... Read more
Here I go...
Sparkpeople has moved me into stage 3, lifestyle changes. And while I know I am there, consistently tracking my calories, and exercising regularly, it makes me a little nervous. I recently discovered that I was depriving myself, and sabotaging... Read more
My social eating monster
When I eat at home or work, I do a good job staying under my calorie limit. Social eating, or eating with my friends remains my largest obstacle. I want to spend my free time with friends, but they often choose foods that are not even remotely... Read more
I want to tell everyone I meet: I lost 21 pounds!! I am proud, and happy. My pile of way too big clothes just keeps getting bigger. I am so excited to unpack my spring and summer clothes, and I worry a little bit that favorite items might ac... Read more
Some negative things about losing weight
I am at sixteen pounds lost, which is awesome. I am thrilled. I am at the lowest I have been in ten years, and I look and feel so much better.
I over-exercised this week and injured myself! Oops, a little too much motivation. ... Read more
I have lost 14 pounds, which feels great! I am fitting my clothes differently, and there is even a small pile of pants ready to go to goodwill, as they are too big, yay! I would love it if my energy level would go up, or I would actually look ... Read more
My Blue motivation
I am much more competitive than I would have imagined. After joining Sparkpeople months ago, the frequency of logging on dwindled considerably. I really do want to eat better, exercise regularly, and firm up, but I have always had trouble with... Read more
