Motivation at Goodwill?

Wednesday, September 23, 2015      3 comments

I went to Goodwill to get some pants on Friday night, and I have been SUPER MOTIVATED ever since! I was getting lazy about portion control, tracking calories, and exercise, and I really didn't care. I gained back about 20 pounds from my lowest... Read more

Better than I was but not as good as I could be

Friday, July 31, 2015      2 comments

I am so much healthier than I used to be. I can fit into clothes that you can buy in a normal store, not just stuff in a plus size store. I am very happy about where I am. That said, I am not at my best. At the beginning of 2014 I was at 15... Read more

We ran a 5k!

Friday, July 24, 2015      2 comments

It’s still so hard to believe we ran a 5k! I never EVER thought it would be possible. About a year ago, after I got married, I mentioned to my husband that I felt like we should step up our exercise a bit and maybe try a couch to 5k program.... Read more

Too many calories, and 30 days is too long!

Friday, February 06, 2015      4 comments

I have been lazy about how many calories I eat. I'm not going all wild or anything, just have a few too many most days. I ended 2014 happily married with about a 15 pound gain for the year. I was warned that being married could make tha... Read more

Music really helps - playlist samples

Wednesday, November 05, 2014      0 comments

I have been walking almost daily for a couple years, and recently started a couch to 5k program with Jeff. We are taking longer than the plan to get through the running program, but the progress is really amazing! I can run (jog is probably a ... Read more

A busy 2014 so far

Tuesday, July 08, 2014      1 comments

So much has happened this year! Not in the weight loss category, but I can live with the maintenance I have done. I got married which took a lot of time and attention away from the weight loss - completely worth it! Now my new husband (JeffAl... Read more

My weight loss article!

Wednesday, February 12, 2014      12 comments

I have lost 73 pounds since I joined SparkPeople. I never thought I would be this successful. But what I really can't believe is that I am frequently asked about diet and fitness advice now! My company recently started another round of the Bi... Read more

I have had great results with SparkPeople - 65 pounds down! I am much more active and healthier. I track my food, stay in my range, and exercise at least 10 minutes every day. I've been doing it for 18 months and I know it works. The pro... Read more

Crying in the Old Navy dressing room

Monday, August 12, 2013      22 comments

Yes I was. All out crying in the Old Navy dressing room in front of everybody. I was going to ask JeffAllen to write this for me because he's such a good writer but since I felt it I thought it would be better coming from me. So I wrote i... Read more

Hello 12!

Friday, August 09, 2013      1 comments

This is my version of the trip to the mall already blogged about by my friend JeffAllen. If you get a chance you should read his "32" blog, but this is my side of the story. In the last few months, I've found myself getting a little bored ... Read more

Exercise doesn't have to be expensive!

Friday, August 02, 2013      3 comments

I don't have the money or the time to commit to a gym membership or lots of equipment. I'm so glad that with SparkPeople I don't have to spend money or a lot of extra time. One of the biggest problems I have with exercise is that I don't l... Read more

Is overweight the new average? A response to myself

Thursday, June 27, 2013      7 comments

I wrote a previous blog entry titled is overweight the new average? Apparently so. 2 days ago I actually had someone tell me I don't need to lose anymore. I believe she was sincere. It was in the ladies room at work and she asked me if I... Read more

My vegetable adventure

Tuesday, June 25, 2013      2 comments

I've had some great results with the SP program so far, losing over 50 pounds by tracking my food and getting fairly regular exercise. I didn't focus on changing what I was eating because I didn't want to feel deprived, I just watched my portio... Read more

Sometimes the scale surprises me in a good way! I am so excited today. I lost 1.5 pounds this week! It may not sound like a lot but to me it is HUGE! Now that I've lost over 50 pounds (wow, can that be for real?) continued weight loss co... Read more
