And again . . .
I've had some starts this year, but haven't followed through. My usual barriers: stress and medical conditions. But I know I can overcome those just as others have on this site.
This has been my gear up week, paying attention to what I am... Read more

Ack - at my heaviest since pregnancy, closing in on how heavy I was during pregnancy.
So many excuses - but the main one is I'm tired and having a hard time keeping my motivation up. But looking in the mirror last night, and stepping on th... Read more
TMI - embarrassing post
This is TMI and an embarrassing post, but I feel I need to post it for a few reasons:

2. Its a reality a lot of people don't talk about with obesity.

Pants too tight
I tried to put on a pair of pants this morning that I used to wear all the time, and they were too tight. Just another reinforcement that I need to make healthier choices.
Today is day three and so far so good. I'm tracking everything and... Read more
I have put the weight back on, in fact, I am higher now. Some of my pants don't fit anymore. I'm tired and feel gross.
There is no excuse, there is no one to blame but myself. I can do this and I will do this starting today:

My son curled up in my lap yesterday for some cuddle time. He is almost 8, so he doesn't cuddle with me as much anymore.
I lost my mom when I was 20. I know people who lost their parents at earlier ages.
I want to be around as long... Read more
Here we go again
I start, I have some progress, I back slide and I stop, and then I start again.
However, it took me a long time to quit smoking, so I know I just need to keep working at it.
My goals this week:

knocked down again by pain
Tired of living with pain. I blogged about barriers before, but this is my biggest one. I don't want to move when I hurt. I don't care what I eat when I hurt. My depression is deep when I hurt.
I can get out of bed and go to work. In f... Read more

Decluttering leads to hummus :)
I have to admit I wasn't excited about decluttering being one of the goals on our Spring Challenge this week. But I have to say, it surprised me.
I had off from work yesterday, so was working on decluttering in the kitchen. I had previo... Read more
Feeling a little better
I'm starting to feel better, still sleeping too much though. I did a cardio video yesterday, and it felt good. I'm feeling a little sore in my hips, so plan on keeping things low key today. Some strength training and a yoga video.

Been depressed these last few days. I have cyclic depression, so I go through cycles. Affects my activity level, and my nutrition, especially cheese. I love cheese anyway, but when I'm depressed, I swear it is all I want to eat. So yesterday... Read more
No change, but hanging in there
No change in my weight this week. but still good with the NSVs. I'm wearing a shirt today that previously was too small.
Went for a bike ride today, decided to go a different way, one with hills. Wow!! I thought I was getting better but... Read more
I admit, I was a little disappointed when I weighed myself this week and the scale only went down 0.2 lbs. I felt I did really well keeping on track nutritionally and physically. But, I'm balancing that disappointment with happiness at my non-... Read more

I'm feeling good about the changes I am making. For the last two days, I got in over 10,000 steps. My goal is to go for a walk on lunch every day for at least 30 minutes. I also want to either walk or bike ride when I get home. This week has ... Read more
