Happy New Year!
Well, I didn't lose any weight in December...BUT I managed not to gain any either! So since I'm still down 25 pounds and holding steady, I decided it was time for me to award myself the "I live 25 Pounds" icon. Read more
Happy Thanksgiving -- I managed to not do too much 'damage'! I controlled myself with the turkey dinner/lunch, tried to take it easy on the carbs, didn't have (or want!) seconds, and shared a piece of pumpkin pie. Afterwards, I took a loooooon... Read more
Well, I haven't weighed myself in the past few days but I do feel like I'm still a few pounds up. It didn't help that I had a bit more more cheddar-flavored popcorn yesterday (I LOVE that stuff) and the family ordered a chicken-bacon-ranch pizz... Read more

Yea me! I did a 45 minute walk tonight (2.5 miles) -- and the last 1/4 of it (approx.) I weighed 8 pounds more!
Why is that? And why is that a good thing? Because I found a GIANT piece of a downed branch that would be perfect for our fire... Read more

Hmmm, my true motivation behind my weight loss and fitness goals:
1) To feel better about myself.
2) To fit into my size 12-tall pants again!
I REFUSE to buy any more large pants! I bought 2 pair and the least dressy pair is the ... Read more

I was just checking in with SparkCoach and a link led me to my blog. I didn't think I really had a lot to say today except I thought about how I was 'starting over for the LAST time'. This got me thinking -- I've been 'starting ove... Read more
