Thursday, November 13, 2014      11 comments

For years and years and years, I didn't go to my doctor because I was fat and I didn't want to have the talk about how I was fat (my doctor at the time would and did talk about how I needed to lose weight for like 30 min straight, even if I was ... Read more

Been Feelin' Blue

Thursday, October 30, 2014      4 comments

I'm not exactly sure why, either. Is it the gloomy weather? Is it my eating habits? Exercise habits? Did something happen in my life that I'm not processing correctly. I just wanted to explain why I haven't logged on. I haven't forgotten yo... Read more

Life has been good, though last weekend was BUSY preparing for my aunt's boyfriend's birthday party! Probably the best part, or at least one of the memorable ones for me, was when I decided to play chase with my cousin's son, a very energet... Read more

So I've been back on Medifast for 1 week. My first week went REALLY well, overall. Monday, I "splurged" by having a beer (only one!), and on Saturday, I went to a friend's house, where she served vegetarian lasagna, wine and ice cream. But other... Read more

Being Frank

Friday, September 12, 2014      15 comments

No, I haven't changed my name. I'm just going to be really, brutally honest. I fell off the wagon. I bumped up to 200 pounds. Sure, I kept running, but running was sometimes a nightmare, what with the knee. (People are not lying when they s... Read more

Operation: Birthday

Wednesday, April 02, 2014      5 comments

I'm pretty proud of myself today. It's not for something big, like exercising or eating a particularly good food. It's just that I logged into SparkPeople for the third day in a row. Again, small, but I am happy to check in and poke around on my... Read more

There's a part of me that wants to hide the fact that I've gained 30 pounds and am in size 12 pants (instead of size 10 - not that it is REALLY the pant size that makes or breaks the person). It's that part of me that's a perfectionist, that ha... Read more

This month, this year has been topsy-turvy, what with my slipping and sliding around Maintenance. My knee injury, not exercising as much, my family drama, my work drama - all of this just kept heaping onto my back until I felt like I would coll... Read more
