43 years old. 60 pounds overweight. I feel like a turtle on my back most of the time. How the hell did this happen? It is hard for me not to beat myself up in the name of taking responsibility. I am really good at beating myself up. Pr... Read more

Time to actually lose weight

Friday, July 15, 2011      2 comments

My husband took a picture of me last night and, granted, I was slouching on the couch with shorts and a t shirt and no makeup, but when I saw the picture, I was really upset. Who is this person? Is it me? How did I get so big? So, I challenge ... Read more

Well, my last blog was right at the start of week 3 of bootcamp. Shortly after I wrote it, I hurt my back and was seriously derailed. After some serious yoga to de-spasm my back, I'm ready to finish the bootcamp. I go!... Read more

How did this happen?

Good Day

Wednesday, July 21, 2010      5 comments

Well, I am having a good day for the first time in what feels like about a month. So far this week, I have met my exercise goals and tracked my food. Although I have eaten too much every day, I am not beating myself up mentally about it. One s... Read more

Maybe the sun is coming out?

Friday, July 16, 2010      3 comments

Well, I was in a pretty dark place the last time I wrote a blog. Things are looking a little more sunny today though. The magic of sleep, rest and I am in a much better place--despite getting on the scale and gaining a pound--which I am chalki... Read more

Where does the motivation come from?

I get up every morning and say I will stay in my calorie range today. By evening, I am tired and only want to enjoy myself which these days means food. I love food and a slice of pizza has never really done me a wrong (except it is always one s... Read more

Well, my third weigh in was today. I knew I did not have a great week. I knew I could not sustain the 3 lbs per week loss I had for the last 2 weeks. But I am still disappointed at the .2 loss I had this week. I am trying to focus on the good-... Read more
