Day 15: The Day After...
The day after a weigh in was once a strange, but predictable story. It would go like this: I weigh myself, I was hard on myself for not reaching my unrealistic goal, I would be depressed, I would eat McDonald's, ice cream and anything soft and r... Read more
Day 14: Weigh in Day
I used to step on the scale completely emotionally tied to the outcome. I mean if I met some unrealistic goal then I was "happy," but if I didn't it led to all kinds of doubt, self-denigration and a generally crappy day where I thought about ice... Read more
Day 13: So annoying
I have heard people say they just eat smaller meals throughout the day to lose/maintain their weight for years. Of course, I n.e.v.e.r. listened. I ust went on with my life overeating, undereating, and generally screwing up my body. That said, n... Read more
Day 12: Cold Outside, Warm Inside the Gym
Today is supposed to be my day off after working out six days straight. That was the plan anyway. But relaxing - and by that I mean laying under my nice warm blankets - makes me feel lazy. I'd rather be moving my body. I wish I could teleport my... Read more
Day 11: Dancing through it!

Day 10: Yeah, It's Friday
It's been a great week! I've been consistent with workouts and made continued improvement with food.
Even better, I've had some difficult situations but I've had the motivation to keep going away. This is important because I am not seeking ... Read more

Finally, a good night's sleep. This seems to be the hardest part right now. How odd? Anyway, when it does happen - it's a beautiful thing.
Ready to go. Ready to succed. Woot woot!!

Day 8: Quitting is not an option!
Last night, I took this killer aerobics class. It was the first time I almost threw up in a class. Crazy, huh? Even crazier - I took a second to compose myself and just kept slinging myself around til the class ended. I told myself - that I just... Read more
Day 7: 4.6 lbs. Gone Forever!
I got up early to weigh myself today. I was too excited to see the results of my hard work. Yeah! I have relinquished 4.6 lbs forever. Gone. See ya. Buh-bye. I was driving home from the gym last night thinking this HAS to be the end of this yo-y... Read more
Day 6: Made it through the weekend
Usually the weekend sucks. And by that, I mean they. are. horrible. I get bored and then just starting eating anything that is not nailed down. But this weekend, was different... I wasn't thinking about boredom or giving into temptation. I just ... Read more

Day 4: Keep Going
This is day four and I'm still hanging in there. This a great accomplishment for me because usually when I'm on vacation I eat out of boredom. But I haven't felt tempted at this point. Last night I had some sugar free candy for my sweet tooth. O... Read more
Day 3: New Year, New Life
New year and three days in... I am feeling positive. I haven't felt this positive about a new year in a long time. I really think this is the year I will make it happen.
Okay, I did really good today. Getting through the workout was tough b... Read more
Day 2: Still Feelin' Good
So far so good AND still feeling motivated. I did my morning workout on the new mini stepper. That thing works up a real sweat. I like this idea of splitting the work out between day and night for right now. Before I would do marathon workouts a... Read more
