I posted about some things that didn't work, now here are some things that have kept the scale moving down lately: 1. Eat like a two year old. I managed to be a picky picky eater for about 22 of my 33 years on earth thus far. When I first de... Read more

Things That Didn't Work

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      0 comments

I'm on a little bit of a weight loss roll at the moment and it has made me think of all the times I have been trying to lose weight and have failed hard. I've been at this on and off for the past 10 years and have tried so many approaches at thi... Read more

Some Days Are Like That

Tuesday, March 10, 2015      1 comments

I've had a nice, slow and steady loss of 10 pounds over about 2 months. For most of that I have maintained good eating and exercise habits. Those habits are self rewarding. The more I do them, the more I want to. At the moment, I am sick. Th... Read more

monthly check in 3

Monday, March 02, 2015      1 comments

The last time I posted my dress update was September, before our move from Virginia to Idaho. We are settled in, I've been working out, and finally dropped the stress weight I put on while we moved. I would say, more or less, I'm back to... Read more

catch up

Monday, February 23, 2015      2 comments

Man I haven't posted in so long but I am on track and doing really well. I've lost 7 pounds in the past three weeks. We suddenly moved across the country/changed jobs and school/bought sold a house so I was not focused for about three months. ... Read more

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      5 comments

I committed to doing a monthly check-in in a particular dress I am fond of (for memories of how great it feels to be in good shape/eating well). Anyway, August was something about like this: Read more

Week 2 Do-Over

Tuesday, September 02, 2014      1 comments

Jillian and I haven't been hanging out as much lately, so I don't think week 2 got a fair shake last week. I'm starting over this week to see how Week 2 goes. I'm a little bit tired of it, but I figure the additional investment in doing Week 2... Read more

Some Little Things

Wednesday, August 27, 2014      1 comments

I drank some water I worked out two days in a row I just barely tipped over into the "Healthy" range of the ever-meaningful BMI Scale:) I received a lot of encouragement from my son today while working out - at the beginning of th... Read more

Slow Start

Tuesday, August 26, 2014      3 comments

It has taken me about three weeks to get back on schedule since vacation. Five days after vacation I was recovering from a stomach bug, and the day after that kids started school and my husband left for Portland to do a job interview. I planne... Read more

Post Vacation and Mid Stomach Bug Lessons

Tuesday, August 19, 2014      3 comments

I was going hardcore the last time I blogged on August 9th. I was in control of my eating, making time for exercise, and generally making my health a priority. Everything had come together. 10 days later and I am slightly worse for wear but s... Read more

End of Week One - Ripped in 30

Saturday, August 09, 2014      3 comments

I have completed the first week of Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. Compared to the One Week Shred, it seemed so easy that I was skeptical that it would be enough to continue my weight loss. However, at the close of the week I can see that I hav... Read more

Taking this Show on the Road!

Friday, August 08, 2014      4 comments

I was reading another member spark page, and she captioned a picture "the exercise that works is the one you do!" I thought, man, there is so much truth to that in many ways. I have had unhealthy eating habits my whole life. I ate my first sa... Read more

The Weight on my Shoulders

Thursday, August 07, 2014      2 comments

I'm not going to go into a ton of detail, but for about 10 years now I have been carrying around an emotional weight. I'm a pretty average person overall, so I'm not talking about some kind of major big issue. Through ten years of marriage and... Read more

On Cravings - The I'm Totally Giving in Version

Tuesday, August 05, 2014      2 comments

Sometimes it is totally worth it to 'cheat'. Food is a lot of things. It is fuel for your body and brain. It is also often an expression of emotion between people. Sometimes, food serves an emotional role in our personal lives when we are st... Read more
