It kinda hurt to just take down the pictures of my 20, 40, 50, 60, 70 & 80 lb goals, but I feel that it's not fair to keep them up. Yes I earned them previously but now I'm starting over and I'll need to earn them again. I'm sure I will eventua... Read more
Off the track doesn't even do justice to how far back I slid. I was feeling so much better with my 82 lb loss. I was moving, grooving, eating healthier and feeling so positive. Last November (2012) I broke. I was shields down in all my own joy a... Read more
Alright Me, you're the first person to point out to others when they are being mean to themselves. So now its mirror time.
You have been through so much trauma, not just over our lifetime, but even just in the last 2 years. You've managed to ... Read more
What 60 lbs looked like.
So I decided to take a look at some of the visual evidence of my 58 pound (so far) loss.
While I didn't really think I looked that different, I'm starting to grasp otherwise.
I started this journey in July of last year, now here I am 6 mont... Read more
So my last blog was about the positive sounding job interview. Yeah, that didn't work out so I'm still out of work. But I still have a roof over my head so it could ALWAYS be worse!
With that in mind I do still have to vent, lol. So time with ... Read more
FINALLY a little break!
I just got off the line with a phone interview for a job! After MONTHS of applications, submitting resumes, networking & all sorts! This is the first positive feedback I've had in ages. Even if I don't get this positio... Read more

Official Weigh in
Well, I didn't really believe it (even though I'd kinda hoped that it was) the scale at the mall was not accurate. That being said....I AM DONE with another 15 pounds!
I'm a tad bit disappointed that it wasn't the ADDITIONAL 15 pounds the ot... Read more
So I was with my "sister" the other day, she's now gotten strong enough to go out into the world for little errands here and there (back to work for her Monday week), and we went out to the mall. She needed to pick up some maternity pants, not s... Read more
I've not really had much time to focus on blogging or well really anything.
I am still tracking my foods and staying within my goals (with the occasional sodium issue). But I'm swamped! I'm so exhausted and fed up and really just overwhelmed.... Read more
HEY ME! GET WITH IT!!
So I've been really good with watching my foods (I'm actually pretty proud of myself for that), however, when it comes to exercise, well I haven't been. I just have not been motivated. Between depression, stress and well just flat laziness, I've... Read more
So I weight myself today.
I didn't lose anything but I didn't gain anything.
To be perfectly honest I haven't exercised in the last 3 weeks, so I suppose that is really not such a bad thing.
While I was on the medication for my legs the ... Read more
Name change & Akhilandeshwari
So I've changed my user name yet again.
It sounds funny to myself when I try to explain why. There are people with whom I do not wish to share my journey (Not people from the site mind you) so any USUSAL screen name I would use I steered clea... Read more
Cake, sodium, calories and other things that confuse me.
Today I ate cake. I'm not saying I'm ashamed of myself, I was actually worried that I would have that since of dread. That oh I "shouldn't have", or that I was "bad" for eating it. Nope. I ate it. I was okay with it. I logged it and I'm okay. I ... Read more
Fitness, Exercise, Moving ... whatever you call it, I have a question.
