Ok, I think I snapped out of it.
I think I snapped out of my funk. I spent a pissy day at work, mainly on Facebook... went home early. Watched Hall Pass, gave myself a nice manicure, and still felt pissy.
But then a show came on, and I started to remember all of the good... Read more
Its just one of those days...
I am in a funk. I know it. I'm trying to not act on it and binge, and I am really annoyed right now. With work, with my food, with my exercise. I'm just pissy and I need to snap out of it.
Now that ONEderland is close, I feel like I'm o... Read more
Why yes, I would like to walk to lunch.
When my friend asked me today, do you want to walk to Chipotle? I initially thought, no. No, its going to take longer. No, its cold outside. No, its just easier if we drive... and then I thought, that's the exact kind of thinking that got me to ... Read more
Seven Pounds to ONEderland!
I had a pretty good weigh-in today. The cold is definitely easing off, hopefully over soon, and I maintained a -3lb weight loss. So with those 3 lbs, SparkPeople told me I had left the obese BMI range and entered into the overweight range. (I... Read more
The benefits of being sick
I hate being sick, but I'm trying to look on the bright side. Ignoring the ridiculously sore throat and head cold issues, I spent yesterday relaxing and napping at home. I cleared out a lot of junk from my DVR, spent time with Pippa (my dog wh... Read more
I love Halloween
I had a lot of fun dressing up in a shirt I thought would be to figure hugging... turns out, it was a little tighter than my comfort zone, but I set a goal earlier this month that I would wear it and not care if it wasn't perfect.... and I had a... Read more
A good weekend
This weekend one of my best friends got married at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Not only was it gorgeous, but I actually was excited to go. I know, I should have been excited to go regardless, but it was fun to see people I hadn't seen in a... Read more
Another great story taken off FB.
Igigi -- a really great dress designer (sizes 12-30+) -- just posted this on their FB page.
A while back, at the entrance of a gym, there was a picture of a very thin and beautiful woman. The caption was "This summer, do y... Read more

Weight Loss in Random Places
Weightloss in random places
So has anyone else noticed weight loss in random places? I know its weird, but the first thing I noticed was my wrist were skinny. Like normal person size wrists. I’ve always had the issue of finding watches t... Read more
A lesson in patience…
Work isn’t that stressful for me right now. My boss is horrible, but we don’t see each other that often. Yesterday at our lab meeting he started picking on our Chinese female student and my first thought was, poor Hui. My second thought wa... Read more
So I didn't count calories or anything other than "eat healthy" and eating consciously to lose my first 40lbs... then I joined Spark and started counting calories. The past few weeks my weight loss has slowed a bit, partly through me slipping a... Read more
It could have been a Splurgetastic weekend, but I held myself back.
So I had a really good weekend. I didn't track my calories -- I was way too busy, but I did try to consciously not screw up and eat in moderation -- which was especially difficult on Saturday. It started out with a bridal shower - I made sure ... Read more
Gearing up for Labor Day sales!
Goals for this weekend (I'm going back to my parents house):
1) Don't go crazy indulging at the Bridal Shower and Bachelorette party (of my sista from another mista Kendra)
2) Don't freak out about eating out during the Bachelorette pa... Read more
Has anyone worn PZI jeans and would you recommend them?
I have nothing to wear. A regular comment in my life even though I had two closets full of clothes. I purged out all of the 18, 20, and 22 clothes I was holding on to – and lost almost an entire closet full of clothes a little over a month ago... Read more
