I was just looking at my last blog: the pictures of my size 18 jeans. Right now they're hanging in my closet with the "too small" clothes. Along with my size 20 jeans. AND that size 12/14 shirt I had on in those pictures. In fact, my I am fi... Read more
End of BLC#12 Blog. New goals for 4 weeks
These past 4 weeks have been different. They started out really great, and then I lost my motivation. My results might not be as I had hoped, but at least they are results (meaning at least I didn't quit).
Weight 247-... Read more
Day 155 after Transplant. 50 lbs from Heaviest weight!
My new form of counting days is from my Transplant day (July 1) being day 0, and July 2 as day 1, etc. That's the way they count it at the hospital, at least. It represents my new life without a ton of medical problems.
I lost albs this... Read more
BLC#12 Halfway Blog.
Have I made progress in this challenge? The answer is yes, but not as much as I had hoped. It took me a couple of weeks to really get back into the groove of eating healthy and working out (I am still not where I want to be, but I am doing bet... Read more
Letter to myself BLC#12
You did it! I know it's been rough, and I know there have been so many reasons for you to quit, but you didn't!!! I am so proud of you.
It has been frustrating, trying to regain your endurance and muscle strength from your trans... Read more
Day 145. There is a HUGE roadblock called "transplant" in my future.
I am planning on posting another medical update on my SparkTeams; however, I feel I should address the issue in a blog as well.
I have been fighting cancer for a little over a year now. It was a real wake-up call for me to get up off my ob... Read more
Day 132. The Week in Review.
I thought this week was pretty good... until I got on the scale Saturday morning and was up almost 3lbs.
I think part of the problem is I am getting use to doing the same workout. So, I am going to bump it up this week. I am planning on... Read more
Day 127. Same old, same old.
Last week was pretty rough. My weight did come down almost a pound, which is good, but I would have preferred it did not go up before coming down. ... Read more
Day 121. Goals are good. Discipline to meet them is better.
I was previewing a book today and it talked about how the word disciple is seen negatively. When we think discipline we think punishment or forcing ourselves to do something we don't like. This is VERY true.
But sometimes I think, for me,... Read more
Day 113. "What is this feeling, so sudden and new?"
As I have recently hinted, I haven't quite felt like myself. I'm actually not sure how to organize this post because there is so much going on in my head right now (which hasn't happened for a while).
I guess that is a good place to start:... Read more
Day 111. 10 pounds until next goal. New phone.
My Blackberry has been acting up for several months now, so yesterday I went and bought a new phone. It is a Samsung Mesmerize (also known as the fascinate). It is an android powered phone, so it is different than my blackberry, but I think I ... Read more
Day 106. Crazy few weeks. Still not cured.
I have started to post I don't know how many times, but just haven't had the words to write. I still don't know if I know exactly what to say.
Since I posted last, I have lost 4 (i think) pounds. ... Read more
Day 92. Two more weeks until surgery and transplant stuff starts.
I basically have 2 weeks left until my surgery (April 28th). That day I will get my second central line (dialysis tubing) placed, will receive my first shot to boost my stem cell count, and then will return every day for another shot and possib... Read more
Day 79. Been a while with no food tracker and no fitness minuets.
Disney World was awesome!!! I loved the Pirates of the Caribbean Ride, and the Lion King show, as well as the Indiana Jones show, and the Mickey Philharmagic show!
In Universal Studios, Harry Potter's world was pretty cool. It could hav... Read more
