Half way through my 2012
Back in Jan, I confessed that I use my birthday (Jan 22) as my new year, since it is truly MY new year. I publicly declared some goals. Let's see how I am doing.
Lose 30-40 lbs. YIKES! I have actually gained weight this year. What give... Read more
Dr. Sanjay Gupta's 2X4
Wow - while I have logged in nearly everyday (well, less the cruise) and been very faithful to logging my foods this year, I have been consumed with grad classes and done little else in the way of SP. Or active weight loss for that matter. Wor... Read more
My birthday - AKA My New Year
There are some things about having a January birthday that are not so cool. Lots of people forget it - too close to Christmas and by the 22nd, people are really feeling like their life has returned to normal. Decorations are put away, returns ... Read more
I am so proud of me - graduation!!
It was a day 20 years in the making and I was surrounded by some of my favorite people on earth - I graduated this past weekend and now can finally say I have a Bachelors of Business Administration in Accounting. And as my sister keeps saying, ... Read more
Oh Mother Nature...
Riddle me this - WHY does Mother Nature have to make her arrive, of course toting 3 extra pounds that immediately go away when she departs, at the beginning of every month? And by beginning, I mean I like to weight in on the 1st of each month a... Read more
The last 100 lbs VS the last 20lbs
This has nothing to do with health - let's start there. This has to do with relationships and weight loss. As a sleeve patient, especially a newer one - today is 6 weeks post surgery, I am experiencing a steady weight loss of about 2 lbs/week ... Read more
Ahhh - the sleeve's benefits
Well, this week will mark the one month since my sleeve procedure. I would say I would start with the good stuff first, but it is all good.
1) Band vs Sleeve FOR ME
Notice I said for me - in the end, my doc deemed me and the band a bad m... Read more
Beginning new P90X Journey
Whew - P90X arrived today and I am nervous. My sister and cousin have already done it and both love it, and yet I am nervous to get it started. It seems so intense. But then I am always nervous to start a new training/exercise program. Those... Read more
So much for perfect attendance this year.
I was aiming for it and I was doing good until a family crisis dropped in. Before I start, don't get all sappy. While I am sad, this is a happy moment.
My mom passed away last Wednesday. She was 66 years old and had struggled the last 23... Read more
The Band has been a help but...
If you read through my story you will find that I had lap-band surgery 3/08. It has been a huge help in getting away the my high weight of 235lbs., but it has not been without challenges.
For starters, I have one of the most sensitive ba... Read more
Progress in eating clean
A while back I was urged to move to a "clean" way of eating.
One of the tenants of eating clean is no refined sugar. If you have been reading my rants/blogs for any amount of time you know this is a big deal for me. Sugar and I have maj... Read more
For a while now I have been trying to get my macro-nutrients to be in the neighborhood of 40/30/30. They have been running a muck like escaped lunatics. I can't even give you an example. Let's just say if it is a possible percentage combinati... Read more
I love the look of this style in magazines and catalogs. The catch is that the images I am seeing are clearly of people who are about a foot taller than me.
I ordered a pair of said "boyfriend" jeans from a retailer I nearly always have su... Read more
Been so long...
I don't know what to say - like I forgot how to blog or something. Summer school, is over and I did well. Vacation is just 6 days away and I couldn't be happier. I already started my recreational reading for the summer - The Sookie Stackhouse... Read more

I have some discretionary cash that I can use to buy into some personal one-on-one time at the gym - which I need at this point. With the changes in my available fitness options I am a little unmotivated. Once I get to the gym, the cardio will... Read more
