The Happiness Conundrum
I have found, at least for myself, that when I get happy that continuing the battle with my weight becomes exponentially difficult. Please tell me I am not alone.
It's happened before, I am trucking along, I am doing great, I am basically ... Read more
So...a bunch of stuff happened...
Let's see...it's been a while.
I haven't blogged in such a long time. In fact I think the last time I blogged was the last time I truly felt like I was in charge of this weight-loss situation, and then all these things started happening,... Read more
Slipping Into Complacency
I've been slipping into complacency. I am not gaining weight, but in the two months since I have come back from Christmas vacation I've only lost around 5lbs. I think this is because I have become really comfortable with myself. I am fitting ... Read more
Fighting My Winter Brain
It's been freezing in my area for the last couple of days. Negative numbers, wind blowing, skin instantly in pain as soon as you go outside, freezing. I am sure everyone has heard about the record low numbers on the east coast, and I am sure m... Read more
I have officially recovered from my Christmas weight loss. It took a little over a week to get rid of the extra weight, and this week I actually managed to move my ticker down a pound. It feels like such a long time since I got to do that.

Taking my Lumps
Well, today was the day, my first weigh-in since I went away during the Christmas/New Years holiday. And as I suspected I gained. I gained 3.8 pounds to be exact. Strangely...I didn't have too much of a reaction to it though. I mean I wasn't... Read more
About Not Being Lazy
As I said in my last blog, I've kinda lost my will to do purposeful exercise. I just can't seem to talk myself into doing it, or even put a foot near my treadmill to even walk let alone run. I've been doing other things instead of exercising, ... Read more
Failing Spectacularly at Fitness
I've been bitten by the "OMG it's December and I have to get ready for Christmas and my trip to Canada!" bug. Yeah, that's a mouthful. It's something that I do to myself every year around Christmas time. I just feel the need to go out, do all... Read more
Momma Didn't Raise No Fool.
Since today is Thanksgiving, and my Mom didn't raise no fool, I weighed in today...a full day early mostly because I know tomorrow the scale is going to be angry from the turkey and assorted trimmings.
Don't get me wrong, I am not using t... Read more
I Went to the Movies
I had a lightning bolt moment this weekend. As many geekophiles out there know, this past weekend was the premier of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows part 1. I promise no spoilers are within this blog, just one great big realization with r... Read more
The Most Weight I've Ever Lost.
It's official, I weighed in this morning and I was down. I've officially crossed over into new territory....the most weight I've ever lost. Though, it's not the lowest weight I've ever been, we're still a ways from that one.
I did as Kith... Read more
Logic versus My Internal Voices
I've only ever lost 73lbs. The last time I was on this journey I stopped at 73lbs down, and never went an ounce further. Then months later the slow climb back up started. Now, here I am very nearly 73lbs down, and once more, it almost seems l... Read more
I just wanted to jump on here fast because I was so excited. I did it. I completed my first 20 minute run, or 1.4 miles! In one go!!! I am totally amazed that I managed to get through all 20 minutes. It wasn't easy, but it didn't kill me li... Read more
I should be on top of the world...
It's been a while since I've blogged. I keep having these great ideas for blogs, and I want to write them, but here is the thing....I've been struggling. I should be on top of the world when it comes to my weight-loss and fitness goals. I've ... Read more
The Biggest Winner?
I've joined a "competition" at work called The Biggest Winner. In the same vein as the TV show The Biggest Loser, we've formed teams to compete against other teams for the greatest health improvement.
I've had issue in the past with compet... Read more
