Reminder -- Check!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012      0 comments

Sometimes you have to remind yourself why you are doing this. Here is one of my observations so far. One of the main motivators for taking the first steps yet again was that I felt awful. My knees hurt and I was in a bad space emotionally bec... Read more

Emotional Eating

Thursday, March 08, 2012      7 comments

I've always known that I eat out of emotion. Bored -- graze, happy -- graze, sad -- pack it in, but yesterday was a particularly difficult day and boy did I want to do some damage. I didn't though. Just told myself that if food isn't the ques... Read more

Why is it that I get one thing or the other right, but can't seem to get them both right at the same time. Either my exercise is on point and the food preparation is lacking or vice versa. I've prepared dinners so that I don't graze like a cow... Read more

My Workout Tonight

Monday, March 05, 2012      1 comments

I am so hopped up on serotonin right now! That is the happy hormone right?! I just finished doing Debra Mazda's Let's Get Stepping video and it is good. She rocks! Her videos are targeted to plus sized women and she uses them in her videos.... Read more

Today was pleasant, but it was a hard day. I think I'm getting into the thick of my weightloss regimen. It is after about 20 lbs. that I start to get happy and then fall off the wagon. I have no intention of doing that as I am committed to a ... Read more

I couldn't wait to get my hot little hands on it. So my hubby gifted me one. Nice hubby right?! I'm not a video game person and never have been since it's somewhat out of my age range, but I have to say it is LOADS of fun. I really like i... Read more

Last night I made a nutritious soup of butternut squash, a very small amount of small red potatoes, kale and turkey sausage. Before preparing the soup I ate a chopped salad of cucumber, red onion, celery, oil and vinegar to stave off the hunge... Read more

Doesn't Matter How You Dress It Up

Wednesday, January 18, 2012      4 comments

Ok, I like looking nice. I've always taken pride in the fact that I always made an effort to look nice and neat. What came along with that was a love of clothing and shoes -- bags, not as much. I've spent a fortune on clothing and for a plus... Read more

Lifestyle Change or Diet

Friday, September 23, 2011      1 comments

So I finally purchased The Spark and right in the beginning it states that people who say they are lifestyle changers lose more weight and are more successful in general than dieters. Here's where it gets personal. I know this has to be a life... Read more

The Title of My Blog

Friday, September 23, 2011      0 comments

It has been well over a year since I wrote that entry and I realize that I still feel the same way. Naturally, many things have happened since. I did, in fact, get on the wagon then and towed the line until the end of July. I did pretty well ... Read more

Day 1

Monday, May 24, 2010      0 comments

Today is the first serious stab at losing weight I've made in a long, long time. I'm scared to death that I'm going to fail, but not scared enough that I'm not going to try because not trying IS failure. It's 4:20 in the afternoon and I know t... Read more
