The beginning of this year is really when I began to lose weight and feel better about myself. Here are the updates on inches lost from Jan 1, 2013, to today, July 19, 2013.

-20.6 pounds since January 1, which is .6 pounds over halfway to goal! Broke through my plateau where I was stuck between 152-156 for a few months, and am now out of the 150's into the 140's!
-1" on my neck
-.75" on my right arm

15 1/2 pounds gone since the beginning of the year! 4 1/2 pounds from halfway to my goal! And I'm starting to fit back into some of my clothes that I haven't been able to wear in awhile, so yey! ... Read more
Slowly, but steadily losing and smallest weight!
It has been slow-going, and full of ups and downs, but this morning I weighed in at the smallest weight that I've been in... maybe two or more years. Last summer I was doing really well with living healthfully, and in September of last year reac... Read more
It's been awhile since weighing myself; two weeks ago a very close friend came to visit for about 5 days. We ate out a fair bit, and I didn't pay attention to portions, and I didn't do a whole lot of exercise while he was here. So I was scared t... Read more
Today was the first time in over a year that on my spark homepage, under "Goals and Progress" that my weight lost was more than 10 pounds! In the past year, I have been about 3 or 4 pounds lighter than I am now, but had a lower starting weight, ... Read more
Tape Measures Rule!
Since the beginning of the year, I have lost 10 pounds and 4.55" of fat from my body! The past week the scale has been hovering at that 10 pounds point and not moving any lower, but I could tell by looking at myself in the mirror, how my clothes... Read more
A great December
It's been awhile since doing a kickboxing workout, and I forgot how great it is and how much I love it. Christmas Eve I did it, and today was still feeling the soreness, which is something I actually like (not all the time, just sometimes!) as i... Read more
So today was an interesting day foodwise. This morning I was in a rush, and was out of fruit and greens for the green smoothie I usually have for breakfast, and so opted for whole grain cheerios instead. Big mistake. Those things did not keep me... Read more
Yesterday after measuring myself, and then weighing myself, and finding out that my body has gained more than 3 inches and in the area of 7-10 pounds in 2 months, I went out and bought an exercise bike and a pilates bar. I really really miss the... Read more
The past few months I have been neither weighing nor measuring myself, as in the past I've felt that doing so has made me too caught up in the numbers, instead of focusing on how I'm feeling and learning how to live healthfully, instead of for t... Read more
Build a Bootcamp: Day 3
Yesterday I took off from my bootcamp building workout, and instead did a longer yoga routine. This was the right choice, as I was sore and stressed, and the yoga was relieving. Hardcore cardio and strength intervals would've just tightened me u... Read more
Build a Bootcamp: Day 2
Yesterday I started the "Build My Own Bootcamp" routine by making one pile of cardio exercises and one pile of strength exercises, and randomly pulling out the same number of cards from each pile to build an exercise routine for the day. I just ... Read more
Motivation and New Plans
Lately I've been struggling with a lack of motivation, especially with exercising. My eating habits need some attention as well; it's not that I'm eating terribly. In fact, I am cooking most of my own meals, and making dishes that are healthful.... Read more
