Unchained Recipe Contest
I've submitted my recipes for the Unchained Recipe Contest on Sparkrecipes. I'm excited. The big prize is a Vita-mix blender. It's definitely worth trying to be creative for a Vita-mix. I've been lusting after this blender for ages, and th... Read more
I'm so close to my goal, but I'm still not happy with my body.
I have 18-19 pounds to go. And I still feel huge. I'm a little concerned that I'm gonna get to 120, and I'm still not gonna look like I want to. My thighs and upper arms still have a huge amount of fat on them. Seriously, my arms are like, ... Read more
I've started exercising!
I'll admit it. I've lost almost 120 pounds without exercising. Partly because I have bad knees and I'm afraid of hurting them. However, a big part is sheer laziness. It's just EASIER to stay on the couch with my laptop and TV.

I made something called "chicken stir fry stew" for dinner tonight. I found the recipe in a new cookbook. It was pretty good. So, after dinner I put the leftovers in the fridge. My fridge is such a mess right now. There's not much room. I... Read more
I thought I put grapes in the nutrition tracker. I didn't, but I ate some anyway. So, I had to take away another snack to not go over in calories. Now I'm hungry and watching the clock waiting until dinner. Grrr.... Read more
I'm feeling much better
I was sick for a couple of weeks, but I seem to be fully recovered now. It's so nice to be able to swallow with no pain again. I decided to stop counting calories while I was sick, in hopes of recovering faster. I did gain a pound, but I ... Read more
I'm supposed to do a blog once a week for the community team. I'm really just not a very big blogger, though. So, these will probably not be very long... We're having chicken salad tonight, made from yesterday's leftover garlic roast chi... Read more
How I've Been Doing
I'm a Community Team member now, so I'll have to update this more often. It'll probably be good for me. So, here's the deal with me right now.....
Well, I'm 147 pounds at the moment. 115 pounds gone, and 27 left to go. I've gon... Read more
This still isn't easy.
I've been doing this 2 years and I've lost 108 pounds, and this is still really hard sometimes. I was gonna have one pretzel from my boyfriend's bag of pretzels. It wasn't in my nutrition tracker that I always fill out the night before, but it... Read more
A little extra motivation...
I just went to the Sparkpeople store and ordered the new ladies fitted t-shirt in a medium. ( http://www.bullseyestores.com/

I'm nervous for my doctor's appointment tomorrow. (Possibly TMI for any men who might be around.)
I've had a pain in my lower left side since August. From looking online, I saw that from my symptoms it was either a tubal pregnancy or an ovarian cyst. So, I went to Walgreens not too long after the pain started and picked up a pregnancy test... Read more
It turns out, Chinese food doesn't have to be my enemy!
I used to order Chinese food and get General Tso's chicken, crab rangoon, lo mein, those teriyaki beef stick thingys and an eggroll, and just stuff myself to the point of almost throwing up. Then I would be sad because I couldn't eat anymore. ... Read more
Finally getting around to this
I'm just now getting around to making my sparkpage. I started my diet on March 1st. My goal is to weigh 160 on my 21st birthday, which will be 2-25-08. I've been trying to eat on the low end of my calorie range every day, and I was walking ev... Read more
