I recently wrote a blog post describing my life right now, as an obese woman, including all sorts of details about the generally healthy lifestyle that I currently lead, and all the things that make me feel good about myself that have nothing to... Read more

Monday, October 10, 2016      76 comments

This morning, on a whim, I decided to look at my BMI. I am a 5'7" woman who now weighs 210 pounds.(That makes me obese) I have super pale skin, light blue eyes, golden blonde hair and very light freckles on my arms. If you looked at a typical da... Read more

Working my weight down slowly but surely... Today I finally did a little bit of exercise (30 minute p90x video). It was really hard! Apparently I have gotten really out of shape in the last 9 months.. Hopefully I can remember this feeling next... Read more
So I guess this is Day 3
Monday, March 14, 2016      7 comments

So far, my only focus has been on tracking my food. As much as I want to lose this weight for good, I'm taking it very slowly this time. I've been cutting down on alcohol, which is not easy when you have a kegerator in the kitchen and a husband ... Read more
Starting again

I've reached the point where I feel like I've lost control. I don't think I'm eating that badly but my weight had skyrocketed. Since my wedding, I've gained 40 pounds. I don't like the way I look. I don't like the way I feel. My clothes don't fi... Read more
4 days until the wedding
Tuesday, June 09, 2015      6 comments

So, my plan for the week before this wedding is to just make a point to eat as many vegetables as possible, and keep up with my water intake. I thought it was a reasonable goal. I know when I focus on eating vegetables, I eat less crap. In fact,... Read more

One last big push
Thursday, May 07, 2015      3 comments

We are now into crunch time before the wedding. We're only about 5 weeks away from the big day, so there's a lot that needs to be done. I am slowly, but surely working on getting as much stuff in my apartment packed or donated as possible. We ar... Read more
Getting better
Thursday, April 16, 2015      3 comments

Whatever nasty cold got a hold of me over the past week, it is finally subsiding. Thank God! I do not like being sick. The only vestiges of it are a sore throat from all the coughing, and a slightly stuffy nose, and general tiredness. But, I fee... Read more
Trying hard, even though my body seems to be trying to derail me.

I'm now one week into my April challenge. I did great at first, but then this weekend I started getting sick. And it kept getting worse and worse. I did get my workout in on Saturday, plus 5 miles of walking. Then yesterday I went hiking for abo... Read more

Another good day on the books!
Wednesday, April 08, 2015      5 comments

Yesterday was the second day of my April challenge, and I've still got that momentum going. I drank over 5 liters of water throughout the day, but by the end of work, I was a little lacking in steps. Unfortunately the weather was not cooperating... Read more

Yesterday, I had the benefit of a nice long night of sleep. I woke refreshed and had a good, productive day at work. I even stayed late to get a few extra things done. When I got home, I put on my workout pants right away. I posted in my April C... Read more

Over halfway to the end of March
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      5 comments

As some of you know, I am very anxious for the end of March to get here ASAP. This month is starting to get to me. I am tired. I am lonely. And I don't feel that great right now. Brett continues to work nights. I get to talk to him maybe 10 minu... Read more
