Trying something different/Atkins Day 1
Well, it's been a while since I wrote. Everything is the same old. School of course is kicking my rear, and I'm still on the hunt for a new job. What has changed is the manner of which I'm losing weight. I was on a weight loss medication, but as... Read more
Ups, Downs, Rants and Raves, Dom Style
I haven't written a blog in a couple of weeks, which is beyond me.
Ups: School has been going incredibly well. I don't feel overwhelmed like I did last semester. With any luck, I can come out of both classes with either a low A or a high B.... Read more
A weekly update
This week hasn't been too bad. I started my classes Monday and I *may* end up surviving the semester without pulling my hair out and running in terror.
I weigh myself every day. I know some folks don't like to, but I weigh every morning a... Read more
This week's ups and downs...
This week has definitely been challenging and rewarding at the end.
Our puppy, Cassie, got really sick all of a sudden. We took her to the vet and they couldn't save her so we had to put her to sleep. ... Read more
Highly Upset (Updated)
I called the manager of the payless this morning and the first thing I asked her if they got a lot of returns on the fitness shoes. She stated that not only did they not get any returns on the shoe, but that they were the fastest selling items a... Read more
This week has been a good week. I've lost more weight and I'm 1.8 lbs away from being down 25 pounds. I think I've done pretty well. I decided to treat myself to a pair of sneakers for my workouts. I already purchased a pair of payless ... Read more
This past week wasn't too bad. I was anxiously waiting for my final grades to come in. They came in this morning and were better than expected -- Two B's! Considering I was lagging behind this semester, it was really good to know at lea... Read more
Totally Encouraging and Motivating
This past week has been a wild ride. I got behind in courses this semester and had to turn in all my work at once at the last minute. We're talking 7 total papers and 8 peer discussions and responses in a matter of 3-4 days. I've never been so t... Read more
No More Excuses!!!
We all have excuses... "I'll go back to school when the kids get older", "I'll stop smoking after this last pack", "After I eat this hamburger I'm starting on a diet tomorrow!" Most of the time, tomorrow never comes. It's funny how it took me 29... Read more
Happy, annoyed, frustrated, and excited all at the same time
Finally, I took the initiative and went to a doctor to see if they could help me out with my weight loss. It was a great decision. The doctor was great, very friendly and concerned. He gave me a prescription to help me and put me on a 1... Read more

Wow! Who knew time goes by so fast?
Time has gone by so fast. One minute I'm starting SP, the next minute I'm a gym rat, and the next minute I've lost 20 pounds! It's funny really -- it's only been two months yet I've learned so many things about nutrition that I hadn't... Read more
So far so good.
My calories have been pretty good. I haven't went over yet. However, the working out has been another story. I slacked up a little bit this week, but today i bought a treadmill from walmart on sale for 399 regular 600! It's... Read more
