The end of another year
Well, today is the second last day of 2014. Is it me, or did this year fly by?
This year has been interesting to say the least. We went on our trip to Finland and it was fantastic! My husband loved being home and visiting with his family. ... Read more

The same 5lb
I've lost like 50lb in 5lb increments! Wow! That's amazing!
Only it's not really, b/c every time I've lost those 5lb, I've gained them back. *siiiiigh*
So that means, here I sit, with a net loss of about 3lb right now. That sucks.

It's about more than numbers
Today I was over. I knew when I grabbed that bag of gummys from the kitchen at work that I shouldn't have them. I knew while I was eating them that I shouldn't eat the whole bag. I knew when I was done and I felt sick that I didn't need them. An... Read more

Wow, it's March already? I think I blinked and missed February!
I got on the scale yesterday morning and the scale said 265.2lb. Yes, that's up from the end of January, but you know what, I'm not even mad.

Reflections of a year past
It is now 2014. Wow. I feel 2013 just started and we have already said goodbye to it.
I started off 2013 at almost 285lb. I am starting 2014 at 270lb.

New Gym Annoyances
So I recently switched gyms to one that is right around the corner from my house. It is a bit more each month than my old gym, but since we moved, getting to the old gym was a pain since it was a good 15min drive. And it's worked, I've started g... Read more
Last week I started logging my calories again. It was quite eye opening. I just ate normally for the first few days, and it quickly became obvious that thought I was eating good foods I was eating waaaaaaaaaaaay too much. 100 calories here, 75 c... Read more
Back to Tracking
This morning I was making my lunch for work and decided enough was enough. I had to start tracking again. I use to do it in the morning while I was eating breakfast. But now I don't have time in the morning to go on the computer. I was reading s... Read more
Back to myself again
It's taken quite a bit longer than I would have hoped, but I finally feel like I'm back to myself again.
Before I got pregnant with my daughter, and indeed, before getting married, I had cut all the junk from my diet. I didn't eat fast foo... Read more
A Sign of Success
On Saturday, I needed to do some shopping. The shop is a 5min drive from my house, but I decided that I would walk. I sunscreened my daughter, and got the stroller out and we headed out.
It took us just under a half hour to get there. I fel... Read more
I have a confession to make; I haven't been to the gym at all this month.
I don't like that. In fact, I hate it. Our daycare provider went on vacation, and my husband and I were turned down for vacation. The first week of the month, I was s... Read more
Not going to wait any longer
Before I got pregnant, I was trying to get into running. I was 230lb at the time and I was so bored of the elliptical at that point I wanted to try something new.
As my belly grew and my balance diminished, I stopped. I told myself I'd get... Read more
