Friday, July 15, 2016      3 comments

I've hit a point where apparently I look very good in terms of people noticing. And truthfully, I notice too. I have calf muscles! My thighs are shapelier. My butt hurts when sitting because there is less padding. I am trying new sleep positions... Read more
Sad truth
Saturday, June 18, 2016      5 comments

As much as I worry about maintenance, I still have a hard time just losing weight. Haven't lost any weight this week. Which.Is.Okay. Normal even. Good even. I've been losing consistently for two months so a slow down is fine. B... Read more
Flat tire
Thursday, June 09, 2016      4 comments

I love quotes and sayings and wisdoms... Lately, I've been leaning on the "flat tire" thinking. If you have a flat tire, you don't stab the other three. You fix the flat and keep moving on. When you eat poorly, it's a flat tire.... Read more

Sunday, June 05, 2016      12 comments

Woo HOO! This morning I hit a tipping point: I weigh exactly what I've lost in the last 18 months. I've lost FIFTY PERCENT of my starting weight! Isn't that incredible? Phenomenal? Inspiring! It is to me! It's mind numbing/blowing as well.... Read more
Walking
Wednesday, June 01, 2016      6 comments

I'm trying to log 24 hours of walking this week. I walk approximately 3 miles an hour. It's a LOT of time walking...and I'm a ginger and the high in Arizona later this week is projected to be 117... Luckily, it's safe to walk in the early m... Read more

Sunday, May 01, 2016      8 comments

I keep a chart of my weight loss statistics every week and there is space for a non scale victory as well. BUT I feel like I have so many NSV's lately, that I want to write them ALL down: Won a fitbit challenge GREAT blood pressure ... Read more
New Jeans
Friday, March 18, 2016      9 comments

I can get my current jeans on and off without undoing the button and zipper. Even though I don't like "skinny" pants...that is a bit excessive for jeans. Went out yesterday for a new pair....picked out a size 18 and 20 (currently have a 24... Read more

the world didn't end! I am on break, and decided to up my walking game last week. Ended up with huge hot purpley blister on my bottom foot--walked around it for a few days...guess what? It got worse. Took yesterday off. No 10000 step... Read more
Down 150
Thursday, March 10, 2016      11 comments

So. I'm down 150 pounds from my recorded high. I'm trying to sit with it for awhile, before concentrating on my next shorter term goal, but it's a nice number to be down. I can see differences definitely--hip bones and collar bones are fun... Read more
so much of this is mental
Tuesday, February 09, 2016      1 comments

Yesterday I had two dinners---one with several extra helpings of veggies. And an hour or so later...about 8 ounces of cottage cheese. Maybe I really needed protein? or bulk? I just know that I didn't feel hungry but I so wanted to ea... Read more
Down 100 pounds since...
Saturday, February 06, 2016      5 comments

I am down 100 pounds since my surgery almost 8 months ago. What a feeling to realize that! It has been tough, and the mental game is getting harder, not easier, but I keep plugging along. So proud of myself--have to admit that! To celebrat... Read more

On Monday, after basically staying the same weight for two weeks, I promised myself I wouldn't weigh again til Sunday. The last six days I have walked like crazy and I have been eating correctly--even though my brain wants me to eat a lot ... Read more
Overthinking

So, i got to a "tipping point" where the weeks and months of slow and steady weight loss are now visible to most people. and I have received a gift to be redeemed in six months: a gift that I desperately want to keep losing at the rate I'v... Read more
Months/weeks/days
Thursday, December 17, 2015      3 comments

I'm so grateful I keep a weekly chart of my weight and non scale victories. Most days I feel so discouraged, many weeks I get mad at the scale, but each month I've been steadily lighter than the month before. Eating better and moving more... Read more
Lost 0
Sunday, September 20, 2015      2 comments

Well, I officially lost zero for the week. I'd be even more disappointed but yesterday was the first day someone who didn't know my story noticed I looked better. So there's that. Still trusting the process but admitting out loud weeks lik... Read more
