Ready for a fresh start!
I've yet to weigh myself to see the damage I have done, but I'm not going to spend my time beating myself up for it. Losing weight was never my resoultion before, so this year is my year! I've been working out at our community center, but I took... Read more
Finally out of the 170's!
So it's no secret that work has gotten so rough that workouts have completely been out of the picture for about a month now, which really sucks. I started to get discouraged because for three straight weigh ins I was stuck at the same weight. I ... Read more

Short and sweet this morning.
Another crazy week at work, which has led me to SP neglect once again. I started this process in the high 190's, and as of this morning...I am one pound away from being in the 160's. I've got to get back into my workout mode come Monday. I've be... Read more
I haven't been online in about 2 weeks due to a long and rough moving process, but I have still been strict on my diet. I've passed my 25 pounds lost point, and I couldn't be happier. I'm seeing some serious change here. I no longer have to wear... Read more
Seeing some progress here!
Friday is my weigh in day, and as of today I am one pound away from losing 25 pounds! I'm so pleased with having progress rather than spiraling backwards. Thanks to everyone and their motivation. I couldn't do it without people who knew what I w... Read more

1 in the thigh.
.5 in the upper arm.

No workout yesterday. :(
I didn't get to work out yesterday, and it kinda bummed me out. I ended up working a 13 hour shift opposed to my usual 10 hours. I didn't get home until after 8:00, so going to the gym was out of the question for my tired self. Hopefully today I... Read more
After having 3 days off, I'm not ready to be back in work mode. Spent most of the weekend in Nashville, so my eating habits were a little less than healthy. Given my extreme dieting, I feel like it was okat to splurge for once. I just gotta be r... Read more
Weigh in today!
Unlike last Friday, I didn't dread weighing myself today. I've been pretty active this week, I even doubled my work out time yesterday. I'm now at a 23 pound weight loss, which is a jump from the 20 pounds last Friday. I hope at this rate I can ... Read more
It's getting easier all the time.
For the second time, I went grocery shopping and didn't lay eyes on anything unhealthy for me. I had some strong workouts Monday and Tuesday, and plan to keep it up this week. I've got a birthday party today after work, but I'm off tomorrow so I... Read more
My hard work is paying off!
As I mentioned in my last entry, I was going to try and fit into medium scrubs at work today (I usually wear large.) AND they actually fit! I was so giddy.
I got off early, and straight away went to the gym for some quality cardio time. All... Read more
It's a new week!
Since my week last week wasn't as productive as it should have been, I'm waking up today with the motivation to make this a better week. Other people are starting to notice my progress, and it feels realy nice. At work we have to wear hospital i... Read more
Haven't had the most prodcutive week.
It's Thursday, and I barely have an hour of fitness for the week which is so unlike me.
Apart from working 10 hour shifts on Monday and Tuesday, I was on call both nights too. Tuesday I actually worked about 20 hours in total. Needless to s... Read more
Answer to the age old question.
"What exactly are you hoping to accomplish?"
I've never really given it much thought about the things I'm hoping to accomplish on my journey until recently. I want to say that I'm not doing this because of how I look, but I can say that's n... Read more
