I can do it. I just have to keep telling myself that. I've lost 20lbs. That's amazing! I have to just keep going. It's so tempting to fall back on old habits. The excuses are so easy. My leg is still healing. Walking is hard enough;... Read more

Week 18 - Broke the Streak

Sunday, September 06, 2015      3 comments

I'm a little disappointed in myself. I broke my streak. I had 8 glasses of water 126 days in a row, usually more, and then on Friday I only had 7. I fell asleep on the couch and had to drag myself up to walk the dog. I'd been planning to hav... Read more

Week 15 - Need to Maker Better Choices

Sunday, August 16, 2015      0 comments

So last week I was frustrated because I've been in a plateau. That led me to make some poor food choices and didn't motivate myself to exercise as much as I should have. The result is exactly what I expected. I need to make better choices thi... Read more

Week 14 - Stuck

Sunday, August 09, 2015      6 comments

I'm stuck. I know plateaus happen. I'm looking for non-scale victories. I feel fitter. I'm walking better. I don't hurt as much at the end of the day but my goal line is rapidly disappearing. If I were meeting my goals I would be 190lb... Read more

Week 13 - Disappointing Shopping Trip

Sunday, August 02, 2015      0 comments

Why do sports bras have under wire? It seems like it would be incredibly uncomfortable. I don't need my bosom shaped while I exercise I want it contained so it doesn't hurt. I went to the plus size active store yesterday because I needed ... Read more

Week 10 - On Vacation

Sunday, July 12, 2015      1 comments

I don't have a weigh in this week because I'm no where near my scale. That's a little hard. I've been tracking but I'd like to have confirmation that I'm doing OK. I had planned to walk the treadmill in the hotel gym but that's not happening.... Read more
