Moving back home.
In March of 2016 we may have to pack it up and move back with my mom in her 1200 sq ft home. It will house 4 adults, 2 kids, 3-4 dogs (one of the dogs may not make it through the year), and a cat.
I'll be 30 years old. I'll have graduated f... Read more
Student Loans Have Got Me Down
This is totally not Spark related, but I'm really bummed about student loans and when bummed, people usually blog it out, right?
Between my husband and I, we'll have about $700K in student loans. He isn't done with school yet, but will be i... Read more
I've been Sparking on and off for about 5 years now. I try different lifestyle plans, most of which aren't successful for me. My body doesn't care about the calories in, calories out adage. It does what it wants.
I haven't been on Spark for... Read more
3 months down, 6 to go
Hi all! I haven't been my active Sparky-self lately.
I'm trying not to obsess over my weight and what I'm eating.
I'm down 10 pounds since I got pregnant. I'm not actively trying to lose weight. I'm not following any specific plan. I... Read more
Surprise! I'm just couple days shy of 2 months now. It's kind of hard to keep this kind of news from your Sparkfriends. Now that I've heard a strong heart beat and everything is going well, I figured what better time than now to spill the beans.... Read more
My husband spoke with his bio professor at school, who recommended I contact the leading researcher on obesity and metabolic disorders. I wrote him an e-mail, and almost immediately, I got a response, recommending I meet with a doctor in my area... Read more
Today marks day 7 on Metformin. That means I have to increase my dose by 500 mg to total 1000 mg. Next week I have to increase my dose to 1500 mg.
This medication is making me really sick. It's embarrassing to have to run to the bathroom e... Read more
So, is my doctor wrong?
I don't think I have PCOS. My doctor said, "she had no doubt" I have it. I have every doubt.
I have low blood pressure. My weight gain has spread evenly throughout my entire body (not just around the abdomen). I don't have male-pattern bald... Read more
Metformin and the Occasional Taco
I think I may have lost 2 pounds since I started Metformin on Thursday. It may just be water weight. I don't know. It's too early to tell. The side effects are not fun. I'm trying to stick it out because it takes a few weeks to acclimate. I'm al... Read more

I usually blog about how terribly unsuccessful I am at getting smaller (losing weight, inches, however you want to characterize it).
However, today I'm going to blog about something I did well:
I graduated in from law school in 2012 an... Read more
That's how my body thinks math works. I'm not going to bore you with my story- I can't lose weight no matter how hard I try. Read my other blogs if you really want to know details.
This morning I woke up early to exercise. I got on the scal... Read more
Today is The Day...
Today is the day I get to go for more blood work. I'm really excited. I want to be as proactive as possible to figure out what the heck is wrong with me.
Fingers crossed the results shed light on the situation. I'm ready for a medical nudge... Read more
Where is My Doctor House????

4 months since seriously monitoring everything via Sparkpeople for the fourth time or so- Down 5.3 lbs
11 weeks since ... Read more
Living on a Prayer
Ok, let's state the obvious before I get into this blog entry- I am obsessive. It's kind of ridiculous. When I want something, I'm proactive, and I do something about it.
I've been this way my whole life. I keep pushing myself past limits I... Read more
