And so my seasonal challenge begins!
Saturday, December 03, 2011      2 comments

My goal for these 4 weeks is to get through my plateau phase. I have REALLY let things go the past 6 months or so and I know my pattern is to NOT lose much weight the first 6 weeks I get back into my groove. I am so squishy, I have to put ... Read more

I am BACK! It's day 6 of a streak of eating well and working out for the first time in about 5 months. WHEW! Moving across the country, starting a new job in a new house can really steal your attention! But after my pants and I had a dis... Read more

I went berzerk. Complete nutso! Just threw all the rules out the window and self-sabotaged with the highest sodium chips I could find. (Okay, the high sodium part wasn't on purpose, but WHY even have this stuff in the house?!) I ha... Read more

Stick in the mud
Sunday, March 28, 2010      5 comments

I feel like I'm being a little bit of a stick in the mud. I am supposed to be coming up with a plan of action for the next 6 weeks in between BLC rounds, and I just can't seem to wrap my head around anything that I can commit to. Has anyon... Read more

I mentioned awhile back that I had decided I was going to have to reevaluate my commitments as I didn't feel like I was giving my all to any ONE of the things I committed to. BLC offers SOOO very many opportunities, it's hard not to get jazzed ... Read more
Commentary on virtual friends

Someone on our thread said they sometimes felt closer to the people in their online community than their local friends, and I have to say I have found that to be true. It's interesting how our personalities gravitate to the same kind of p... Read more

How often do you scarf down a quick meal on the run? How often do you skip a meal only to be starved later because you are FAMISHED! How many times do you unconsciously put handful after handful of snack into your mouth until the bag is gone a... Read more

Have you ever seen you're "Magic Number"?
Monday, January 25, 2010      5 comments

I have been considering my magic number a lot lately. I got down to 125 at my very lowest when I lost my full 100 lbs. and people were telling me I was looking a little too thin. (even though the weight charts said I was PERFECT!) You know w... Read more

Wednesday, January 06, 2010      8 comments

As I was watching the show last night I got a little critical. For the first time ever, I was a little disappointed. I saw Michael and thought, "WOW! How many candidates that were his weight did they have to turn down because of poor health a... Read more

I am going to be spending all weekend with the extended family. Yesterday was our early holiday gift exchange, today a wedding, and tomorrow a baptism. I was so keyed up by all the politics by the time I left yesterday that I really could've u... Read more
