New Year

Tuesday, January 06, 2015      1 comments

My gym was crowded last night but I still got in a good workout. 30 min on the elliptical and 15 on the bike. Tomorrow I will do machines too. I hope it's not crazy crowded. All the New Year's Resolution people are showing up now. Even one of my... Read more

I had to go to my doctor today. Had my blood work done last week, had to go and have my check up. I was supposed to go in October (for 6 months) but I had too much going on, I guess. At the doctor's office I weighed 260. Frustrating. I kno... Read more

I'm still amazed a lot of the time when I look at photos of myself, or catch my reflection in a window/mirror. For a long time after surgery I didn't feel any different. I saw the number on the scale changing drastically - for the first few mon... Read more

Gyming it up!!

I went to the gym yesterday. Finally. I've been saying for well over a month that I'm going to start going back to the gym. I finally went. And I have to tell you- I LOVE this gym. It was my first time at this location. I joined pla... Read more

I just feel like making a list of things that I used to struggle with/was unable to do that I can do now. Feel free to comment with things YOU can do that you couldn't do before. It's exciting. 1) Buckle the seatbelt on planes. 2) FIT in... Read more

I always said when I was much heavier that I'd be happy at an 18. or a 16. I'd be happy at 220lbs, etc., etc., etc. Now that I'm losing and my body is changing, I'm not so sure. I don't know what my ideal weight is or what I want my body to... Read more

I miss eating.

Saturday, November 29, 2014      3 comments

Back story: I had a sleeve gastrectomy 7 months ago. Sometimes I just miss eating. Like I'm glad that I can't because I'm glad that I'm losing weight, etc. But sometimes, usually at social gatherings, my digestive system is kind of a downer... Read more

Dangerous weight.

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      3 comments

At my heaviest, I was almost 430 pounds. That was over 6 years ago. But I remember that my grandmother used to say that I'd die before 25 if I stayed that fat. I'm 5'8". So I had a considerable amount of weight. I was around a size 30/32 at aven... Read more

Feeling pretty great lately.

I went out on Monday night. I was complimented a lot. Yesterday I took a bunch of selfies because I was super bored at work. One of my close friends told me that this pi... Read more

One step forward...

You may remember that I tend to whine about my sorry excuse for a love life on here occasionally. Well, the man that I've been pining for pretty hard for the last four years has reared his ugly head again. I'd been doing really well (mostly beca... Read more

Things that make me happy.

Monday, October 27, 2014      3 comments

I have noticed how much easier it is to do a lot of things now that I've been shrinking. I can easily put on socks in the morning. I can cross my legs, sit on my knees for an extended period of time. I can sit comfortably in most chairs, my clot... Read more

Why can't I embrace successes?

Wednesday, September 24, 2014      4 comments

Lots of likes. So many words of encouragement. Lots of people saying “wow you must feel so great” and… I don’t. I don’t feel much different (I mean that’s probably n... Read more

Rewarding myself.

Last night's blog entry was all about negative things, but I forgot to share this with my sparkpage and those who may care. Last May, my favorite singer/musician/song... Read more

Motivation from the wrong place.

I wanted to write about how I have been sticking to tracking and using my wii fit and how Tuesday morning I weight myself and was 277lbs so I think maybe my plan is beginning to work again... But last night something happened. And unfortunately ... Read more

It's been almost a month since my last time entering a weight on this website. And do you know why? It's because my scale hasn't moved. Not up. Not down. Just hasn't moved. I guess I should be happy that it's standing still instead of going in t... Read more
