Thursday, May 17, 2012      4 comments

A year on SP. Oh what a year. So many adjectives. So many emotions. A quick summary to bring you up to speed. Very slim as a teenager through my early 20s. I struggled with mild depression through my late 20s and much of my 30s. Alth... Read more

Friday, April 27, 2012      8 comments

Let's set the scene - oldest at kindergarten this afternoon. I take youngest for a walk in the push chair - doing some errands. She sleeps, I walk. To be honest, old me would have done this (with oldest, obviously). What's different? It's... Read more

Maintenance is a funny thing - I have been in my goal range of 58 to 60 kgs (around 130lbs) for 21 weeks, but I still feel like I am struggling. That's almost 5 months! I seem to focus on the bad choices I make. Are they going to derail me,... Read more

3 hot cross buns in the freezer. Mini ones, that are only 122 calories. I ask the kids if they want one - my 4y.o. says yes, my 2y.o. says no. So I put 2 in the toaster. I eat mine, and the 4 y.o starts on his . . . as I mindlessly go to t... Read more
