Well I didn't take the "don't weight yourself for a while" advice, but I also didn't sweat it when I saw I was up .2 lbs this morning. Why? Because I did day 2 of 30 Day Shred. Is that all? Hell no! I did it, and... I'... Read more

In the more than three months I've been on SparkPeople, there has been no one time where I've felt discouraged until now. This past week, I've exercised a lot. Well, a lot for me, anyway. And because of this (it can't be because of my diet... Read more

I may have lost the battle, but I have not lost the war! As you all know, Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred has wreaked minor havoc on my body. I have been sore, achy, and hobbling around since Monday morning, having done the workout on Sunday... Read more

This is just a quick entry to let you all know how my experiment is going. I already have to change it. I am so sore from doing 30DS 2 days ago, that I don't think I can do it today. It hurts to sit down, and it hurts to get back up.... Read more

Sunday, July 15, 2012      8 comments

So I did it: I bought Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred on Amazon Video. At $4.99 for the whole series, it felt like a steal. I have to be honest: I have been really bad with exercising, basically since I got back from Mississippi at the end ... Read more

Yesterday I was talking to a coworker of mine about my weight loss journey. She is 60 and also trying to lose a few pounds. She's also trying to quit smoking, which is causing her weight loss. She always tells me how I look like I've lost a few ... Read more

I saw this on PEACHELLE's page and I thought it looked like fun. 1. Were you named after anyone? No. But since my name is Andrea and my maiden name is Mitchell, growing up everyone (adults) would ask me if I was named after the reporter An... Read more

When I started back up here at Spark People in April, after several long years of being away, I had already lost about 20-25 lbs from my all time high. I'm not 100% sure where that was, but I know it was very close to 280 lbs. I started here at ... Read more

While I'm back to feeling 99% normal again, I'm still not supposed to exercise until this coming Wednesday, so I've been really vigilant about tracking my food and making healthy choices. And with the heat, I've been making sure I get my daily 8... Read more

How will you be celebrating this 4th of July? My husband has to work until 9 pm, so I'll be going to a cookout at my godmother's farm by myself tonight. I was going to bring Bingley, but it's supposed to be 95 and feel like 100 so I don't think ... Read more

Well since my last blog the way I feel has improved dramatically. I only wound up working a half day on Saturday. My boss kept telling me how lousy I looked, so I took advantage of it and went home at 2:30. In truth, I didn't feel that great: I ... Read more

I am starving. I am sick of soup and yogurt and pudding and liquidy foods. I want to eat something substantial. I managed to choke down a few ritz crackers today, chewing tiny little bits. I was in no pain but I'm really afraid of getting ... Read more

It's been almost 24 hours since I got home from surgery yesterday, and I'm happy to announce that other than some stiffness and minor soreness (only when I touch my cheeks) I am 100% pain free. The only thing I'm suffering now is boredom and the... Read more
