My First Pair of Cute Jeans!
The thing about dieting and getting fit, and being successful...is that you don't stay at one size very long.
This year I've been doing a lot of Goodwill shopping, which can be tough when you're a tall girl. All my jeans have been lucky fi... Read more
I Know Its Just a Number...But Still...
It's been quite a month for me; fun and a little overwhelming.
Because of an annual event I run, I'm seeing a lot of people that I haven't seen since last year, about the time I started losing weight. I am 90 pounds down from my highest we... Read more
I'll Find A Way Around This
Arrgghh! Another injury slowed me way down. This time my foot had kept me sidelined for a couple of weeks. Its so frustrating to want to move and not be able to. But...I didn't use the pity party as a time to eat and eat, thank goodness! And I s... Read more

I'm posting this for the White Tigers Biggest Loser Team Challenge...
Stress is part of life... it happens. Women are big stressers. Dieting is stressful.

I'm Feeling Frustrated!
I'm begining to wonder if maybe I'm not supposed to be a runner. Sigh.
I hurt myself....again. I wasn't even doing anything crazy. I pulled something in the back of my knee while I was on my Nordic track. That's just back and forth motion, ... Read more
Just the Right Response
I had a great moment a couple of weeks ago that is keeping me going now. My Honey and I ran into a friend we hadn't seen since summer. The first thing she asked is if I had lost weight. It was so thrilling that she noticed. Then she asked how I ... Read more

Running on the Beach
Running on the beach?!!! YES! I went running on the beach.
In the past the beach meant just relaxing, and not doing much. But because I'm exercising regularly, I'm changing.
After our drive to the beach, all I wanted to do was get o... Read more
After struggling with a minor knee injury, my September 5k was put on the back burner. I was a little frustrated and even a little tempted to feel sorry for myself. But, I figured out ways to get my exercise in anyway, even if it wasn't the runn... Read more
I'm down a pant size!
I didn't think I had lost enough to fit into my next size down pants, but I dragged them out and tried them on. They were a little tight, but not too tight that I couldn't wear them out of the house. I was in a size 18 a... Read more
A Little Speed Bump
I've spent the week taking large amounts of ibuprofen and icing my legs. Not really what I had planned in the activities department. I knew I should take it easy on my runs, I knew I had knee issues. But I felt so great a week ago after my sched... Read more
