I have majorly fallen off the bandwagon. With finishing up my bachelor's of social work, everything fell to the wayside-eating right, working out, and taking time for myself. Now, I am at the highest weight I have ever been and I feel like com... Read more
Will I be judged?
So, I have found a local place that offers Zumba. I would like to go, but I am worried about being judged for my weight. The studio has pictures of their instructors on their website and I feel like they will be wondering why there is a fat gi... Read more
A Woman Obsessed...
Ok, so I have a very strange problem. When I discover something, I become obsessed with reading all I can find about it, to see how effective it is. Case in point- I found a Kettlebell set on clearance at Target for $18.00 (normally $60.00). ... Read more
Even if you are not having fun... time still flies.
Yesterday was my mom's eight month anniversary. I still can't believe that my mom has been gone for eight months. It is unreal not to be able to call her or get cards in the mail from her. She used to send me cards and stick stickers and writ... Read more
I am currently a student at the University of Kansas (and very proud to be a Jayhawk) and was offered the chance to attend a workshop through my Social Welfare practicum (student social work) site. The workshop was on the Strengths Perspective.... Read more

I have fallen off the bandwagon, hardcore. I did good up until our trip. After our trip, things just went to hell in a hand basket. School started, practicum started (student social working), and my husband informed me that he wants to go bac... Read more
I saw this on LBFROMBUFAD's page.
1. Were you named after anyone? My mom named me after St. Michael the Archangel as Michelle is a French form of Michael. I always wanted my name to come from the Beatles song "Michelle", but she said n... Read more

Some emotional garbage
I have always been heavy. Ever since I was a child, I have always been heavier and taller than everyone else. I remember going to school and being taunted by the other kids about my weight. Fat, cow, pig, hefty, were all names that followed me... Read more
So, it seems that lately I have had various flashes of brillance. Today, while tracking my food, it occured to me that my calorie intake is similar to a bank account. I have a set amount that is available and if I go over, then I am done. I w... Read more
Going behind the wall
Okay, I am a big NASCAR fan. I am sitting here watching the all star race and I just had a random thought. When drivers wreck, many times they will go behind the wall, get their cars worked on, and get back out on the track. It occurred to m... Read more
The company you keep....
I have realized the importance of the company you keep. About two years ago I was layed off from my job and took a job with another company. This company really enjoyed eating and looked for any chance to partake in it- birthdays, ice cream ru... Read more
Weight and wait...
It is amazing how two words that sound so similar have impacted my life. Due to my weight, I have to wait to do so much I want to do. Weight makes me wait to fit into clothing at any store. Weight makes me wait to start living my life. Weigh... Read more
Doing it for both me and my mom
Earlier this year I lost my mom, who was my biggest fan and cheerleader. A few years ago, she had a knee replacement and developed a staph infection. The doctors thought they got all the infection...they did not. It went dormant, resurfaced,... Read more
