  • Scale madness, insanity.

    2/20/2017 8:15:04 AM, by MLAWLEY

    I've come to the conclusion that my scales hate me, they haven't moved in about a month now. Even with me working out more and dieting harder they will not budge. Even though my clothes are fitting looser, it is so discouraging . And yes I know I go a little over board with my weight-ins but that j... Read more

    2/10/2017 4:47:54 PM, by KIMI_SILVA

    My mom has been in the hospital since 2/3 when she went in for a "routine" exploratory surgery to find out why she was having tummy issues. They found an intestinal blockage and a lot of scarred tissue, so they took care of both and she has been there ever since. Now, she keeps having fever, her whi... Read more

    2/9/2017 9:55:54 AM, by CH64412010

    I had a moment of weakness last night. I did good all day yesterday, but at dinner I ended up going like 1000 calories over 8*(. Before this would have devastated me. After a year of a healthier lifestyle and 90 lbs lost, I realize this is not the end of the world. Today is a new day, and I will pic... Read more

    2/5/2017 11:18:26 AM, by KIMI_SILVA

    As I mentioned previously, I have reconnected with an old friend. Things were amazing and then he totally put the brakes on. Now I'm left to wonder what the hell happened. I really like this guy. It feels like I'm going through withdrawal or something and I don't like this. I think this might be wh... Read more

I am going to hit the gym 2-3 times this week. That's been the first for a while. Since my treadmill broke, I h... Read more

  • Taking a look back.

    2/1/2017 10:11:26 AM, by MLAWLEY

    Looking back at the beginning of my journey now it seems crazy that I started this road not knowing if I would stick to my goals.

    I have been dropping weight pretty quickly this month. Since the 28th of Dec, when I made my intention to lose weight, I have dropped 12.8 lbs. I am not sure why I am dropping so rapidly - maybe it's because I have reconnected with someone from my past and the "love bug" hit us both pretty hard, ri... Read more
