What a week! Hard to believe it's already Wednesday!
I've been sticking to my plan pretty well since last Friday's weigh-in. Last night was the exception, we went out for Chinese. After tracking, it looks like I went over my calorie target ... Read more
Just have to brag on myself a little bit...
Today was my best run ever! I'm on Week 3 Day 3 of my 10k training which is run 18 minutes 3x with 1 minute of walking in between. My average pace was just over 11:00, and I ran a total of 5 miles... Read more
Measurements and October goals
This time around, I've decided to track my measurements regularly - like once a month. This helps keep me motivated when the scale isn't cooperating :)
Sept. 4th/Oct. 7th
Waist: 36.5/33.25 - 3.25 in.
Hips: 42.5/41 - 1.5 in.
Thigh: 24.... Read more
I've crossed over...
... to a new weight "decade!" That's right, I'm now OUT of the 180s FOR GOOD! I made it to my October 1st goal, only a few days behind schedule. My next Holiday Challenge goal is 173 on November 1st. That gives me four weeks to lose 5 lbs. Eeek!... Read more
My no-weigh vow
Sooo... I cheated a bit and weighed myself this morning. And I was down to 178.4!!!!
My normal day is Friday, but I was just curious. Now, let's hope I'm still there tomorrow. Too many times I've weighed a day or two early and end up disapp... Read more
Well this morning was the moment of truth... Did I lose after my horrendous gain last week? I was at 180.8 on the 14th and 185 (!!!) on the 21st. Yikes! I attribute some of that to the salty, not-so-healthy stuff I ate throughout the week, and a... Read more
So I tripped a bit...
Everyone has weeks like that, right? Sheesh I sure hope so!
Last week was a complete disappointment. Very little exercise, no tracking, a huge gain :/ BUT I'm not going to let it get me down! I cheated and weighed this morning and I'm up 1 ... Read more
Race for the Cure
Yesterday my friends and I started a team for our local Race for the Cure. Breast cancer is something that has affected all of us and we want to make a difference. I've never done anything like this, but I'm really excited to be a part of it!

Plan of Attack
So, thanks to my Spark Friend TRICIAE2, I have a new plan and challenge for myself. For the next six weeks, I will determine my calorie goal with this formula: (my current weight X 11) - 500, and burning 500 calories/day.
So that means for... Read more
The results are in... 0.6 lb. loss this week. Yay! Yes, I was hoping for more, but I'll take it! One more lb. and I will be out of the 180s FOR GOOD :)
In order to make my Holiday Challenge goal of 178 by Oct. 1st, I'm going to have to lose... Read more

What's YOUR Magic Number?
Do you look at your calorie differential? How often? Do you have a "magic" differential amount where you lose fairly consistently?
Over the past few days, I've had differentials of 1220, 660, and 1115 (est. for today). That's an average of ... Read more
8,342,543rd time's the charm, right?
Wow, what a summer it's been. Unfortunately, I've gained about 10 lbs. over the last few months.
I didn'... Read more
One week in
So far I think this two month challenge is off to a pretty good start. I haven't weighed in yet, but that's coming tomorrow morning. That means lots of water and little salt today! For the first time in a while, I'm not really nervous about clim... Read more
Two Month Challenge
Two months, sixty days, eight weeks.
That's how long I'm challenging myself to stay 100% focused on my weight loss. To say that I have been slacking lately is putting it mildly and it's time to get things back under control.
We're goi... Read more
