Success Story?
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      4 comments

Well! Today I got an email from the Spark People Success Stories team asking me to fill out a survey and submit before and after pictures. I've been feeling kind of blah lately since I can't seem to get myself down to a solid 150 - and stay th... Read more
Two Years Since My Last Entry?!?!
Tuesday, March 22, 2011      3 comments

Yikes! I've been here all along, but no blogging so things look kind of stale! So it's been two years of maintaining. Mostly :) I dropped allll the way down to 145 before my wedding and did a pretty good job of staying between 150-155 fo... Read more
"You're a Tiny Girl"
Monday, March 23, 2009      0 comments

Someone actually said this to me a few days ago, and my jaw practically fell to the floor! I don't yet have that image of myself and don't know if I ever will, but I'm okay with other people having it! I still have not adjusted to the "new... Read more
Back on the Bean!
Monday, March 02, 2009      4 comments

Eek... it's been a long time since I wrote anything here - lame! Anyway... loss has slowed down a lot since before my surgery, but I'm still on a downward slope. I wasn't very vigilant over the holidays so there was some gain, but I didn'... Read more
I take it all back! This Little Experiment Proves...
Wednesday, December 17, 2008      0 comments

This Little Experiment Proves... ... It's ALL ABOUT THE FOOD TRACKING!!! So I've been laid-up for almost 4 weeks now (it's been 26 days since my last 10,000-step-day). I thought a lot before my surgery about how it would affect ... Read more
Standing around (on one foot)
Monday, December 01, 2008      0 comments

I figure it's time to do some blabbing about my bruised and battered foot, so I'll have something to remember it by :) 10 days since my foot surgery, which means I've lost about 70,000 steps! I was worried that I'd gain some back since I'm... Read more
50 pounds with SparkPeople!
Saturday, November 15, 2008      2 comments

Yay! I hit the 50-pound mark today - 33 weeks and 1 day after start. Things have slowed down a bit lately, but I'm still headed in the right direction. Had an out-of-town visitor last weekend so my eating wasn't the best, but it's nice to see... Read more
Happy to be here...
Saturday, November 01, 2008      0 comments

I've reset my goal, so I still have another 10 to go, but making that first "big" one has really made a difference. I'm so thrilled that I made it, and I guess I sort of feel like losing the remaining pounds will just be a bonus. It also just ... Read more

I made it! With 3 days to spare! I really can't believe it. Sometimes it seems like I've been working toward this for forEVER, but mostly it feels like it was just yesterday that I joined SparkPeople. March 28, 2008 - I found SP while lo... Read more

I'm on a seesaw lately - on the plateau, off the plateau, back up higher than the plateau... :) It's nothing I can't work through, but I need to get back in gear. I think that being so close to my goal makes it seem less imperative. It's li... Read more

Whoo hoo! I am officially off the plateau. Perseverance pays off (this is totally a repeat of a previous blog posting, I know). Anyway, I'm off it finally and am within TWO pounds of my first goal. So exciting! I set the first goal based so... Read more

I am stuck, stuck, stuck! But I'm sticking with it. That's all!... Read more
Soooooo Close!
Monday, September 22, 2008      1 comments

Yay! I am thisclose to having a "Normal" BMI (which is how I calculated my first goal). From my high weight (BMI of 35.2) to my SP start weight (BMI of 31.7), I am down to a BMI of 25.3. I can't believe it! I'm not adjusting my ticker ye... Read more

That's what I felt like when I was shopping yesterday and looking in the Size 10 section. There was another lady there and I thought, "There is no WAY I can possibly put on the same size clothing as she can." (And also thinking that she was pr... Read more
The 60-pound barrier has been broken!!!
Thursday, August 28, 2008      2 comments

Awesome. Continued downward movement on the scale pushes me beyond 60-pounds lost. Just goes to show... perseverance can get things done! I'll most likely swing back up a little bit but that's okay - once I've been to a low point I always kn... Read more
