I joined my first DietBet on 8/21 and started the next day. I've been meaning to make this post since, but kept forgetting.
I'm so proud of myself for these first few days. I've kept myself to my calories, avoided temptation, spread the spark, ... Read more
Day 20 - back on the wagon after a rough weekend
Yeah, this weekend wasn't pretty. I ate way too much and realized that I can't be trusted (yet!!) around large quantities of tasty looking food. This is a good lesson to have down before Bobbin & Weavin in two weeks.
In short, I'm more than... Read more
Day 15 - It's working! It's working! (Why am I always so surprised?)
What's that you say? TWO weeks of consistency? Second week in a row of losing weight (2lbs this week, Hooray!)? WIIIIIN
Still hating waking up in the morning. It's still a debate every morning about whether to get up and go to the gym or to... Read more
Well, I smashed through week one. 6lbs down - granted, that's mostly water weight and won't be repeated, but it let's me know I'm on the right track.
PLUS! Three more weeks to go until my healthy eating and morning exercise is a habit.

It's been a long time since I've had any form of consistency. It's sad, really. Last time I was focused and, though I had rough days, I knew my goal and made a beeline for it. Of course, last time, anger and hurt were driving me and those, as it... Read more
Day 2: Reflection
It's late so this will be short. Yesterday wasn't terrible, but I ran into the same issues again. I did well until dinner and then it all fell apart when the boy decided to go out for CHinese. Ugh.
I was great until about 8pm!

Day 1 - Reflection Journal
So yesterday was my first day back. I'd decided that, after the stress of Kingdom A&S I would give myself a week off and then rebound with a vengeance. Yesterday was the day, it's kind of appropriate that it was April 1st.
I always forget h... Read more
Day Two - Doing better
Today was better. I made plans food-wise and stuck to them The only thing that changed was my dinner - from a loaded salad to enchilada soup that we added a bunch of vegetables too. I saved enough calories and fat from the salad that I was able ... Read more
Failure to Plan...
Here I go again.
One again, the most difficult motivator is that I'm happy. Yes, I still fight the blues on some things - the job front, some social issues, that kind of thing - but overall I'm happier than I ever remember being, especially... Read more
A salad revolution/revelation
Soo.... I've always hated salad. Before I got healthy. While I was getting healthier....After I had lost a ton of weight. Always hated it. Especially Iceberg salads. Ever since I had my gallbladder removed, my digestive system doesn't quite know... Read more
Spent most of the afternoon out gardening... and by 'gardening' I mean digging up part of the yard, shovel by shovel, separating out the usable plants from the stupid viney thing that infested the yard in the last..... however long it's been sin... Read more
Stuck in that loop
Yes, friends... last year I had monumental success. I dropped over 60lbs in six months.... and now I've gained about half of it back.
Part of it, I realize, is having been unemployed for a year now. I don't have the ingrained structure in m... Read more
Time for a change in the program....
So, this blog is some time in the making. Every day I sit down and think of all the things I have to write about to cement things in my brain and then never do it. Either I'm putzing about on the internet, working on my web page, convincing myse... Read more
I was disappointed this week at my weigh-in. Somehow I had apparently gained a couple pounds rather than losing any. I don't know if it was just my sore muscles from day two of upping it to Level 2 of Jillian Micheal's 30-day shred or if I was b... Read more
Back and more determined than ever.
So, I'm back again after a few months of absence. As of the last blog, I was pretty happy with my size 12 and was looking forward to getting to size 10.
Then, in April, I lost my job. That sucked. The plus side of it was that I got to spend... Read more
