What 40lbs have taught me.
Compared to the people who amaze me and inspire me on here, my weight loss is small by comparison. And that's ok. That's WHY they inspire me so much. They have lost what I WANT to lose. But I will never see those sorts of losses if I don't first... Read more
1 month in doctor results...
I had my doctors visit on the 16th. According to his scales I only lost 10lbs for the month, but he's ecstatic with the weight loss. So much so we're putting off putting me on metformin. He wants me to continue on the diabetic diet and meet up a... Read more
I'm in...are you?
I've lost almost 20lbs since the beginning of August. That's fairly quick weightloss. Ok, scratch that...it IS quick weight loss. But I do have quite a bit to lose. I have just under 200lbs now to lose. WHOOHOO! I'm so happy to be under that num... Read more
There is power in words...
I've been listening a lot lately to the words that come out of my mouth. I've also been paying attention to the words that others on Sparkpeople or other places type. There's lots of "hope" and "try" and "want to" and "going to". And these are g... Read more
Then and Now, Every Day is a new beginning...
Every other time, I'd start a "diet", I'd go with gusto. I'd be so gung ho for a couple of weeks. I'd try to fit my eating habits into whatever diet I was doing and try to make it work. I would continue with the portion distortion and I'd try ve... Read more
I figured that it was a good idea to get my goals for the month put out there. Some are going to be weight/food/exercise related, but others are going to be in other areas of our lives. Because isn't it true that if there's dysfunction in your b... Read more
Victories all ove the place :D
I had some scale victories. I had some non-scale victories. I had some happy moments. I had some proud moments. Life has just been amazing and it is truly all God's fault, and it's wonderful! (why do we say it's someone's fault if something bad ... Read more
I am done being what I used to be...
I used to be someone who ate whatever they wanted, when they wanted, and didn't bother with exercising. I used to be someone who worked on her feet all day, last thing I wanted was to be on them more.
I used to be someone who was in genera... Read more

Non-scale victories for the win!
I have several now that I can post, and it's really weird. I can move my steering wheel to the lowest position and drive comfortably. This past February I couldn't even fit in my driver's seat with the wheel all the way up and the door shut, it ... Read more
I'm completely confused...
I changed my weight this morning because I'd lost some weight. I get in from my walk, and I entered my mileage and my breakfast, and suddenly my meal plan went from 1690-2040 per day to 2030-2380. What's up with that? I'm not on the new system w... Read more
I'm totally wanting something sweet!
Technically I COULD get something, but I don't want to. I want to stay under the max (205g)carbs for the day. And right now I'm REALLY hedging it. So, I stood on the scale. I weighed exactly right now at 8pm that I did at 6:30am. So I'm TOTALLY ... Read more
Whoot! Second 10 down to be seen never again!!!!!
So, this morning I weigh, like I do every morning. (I know people say don't weigh daily, and I understand their reasoning, however, it helps me figure out my body's reaction to things like dairy, salt, etc!!! Because I don't get the headaches an... Read more

At the cusp
I'm sitting at the cusp of 369lbs. I'm currently at 370.6. I have a goal of 368 by June 25th. That's 2.6lbs in 10 days. It can be done. Honestly, I'll be happy as a lark if I get to 369. See it's not the exact poundage that I'm working toward, i... Read more
