Not in a Challenge group...but I'm going to do it anyway
Sunday, October 28, 2012      10 comments

Five things I like about myself! 1.) My laugh(s). My favorite coworker tells me I have 187 different laughs. His favorite is the 'Betty Rubble' and least favorite is the 'evil cackle'. I laugh a lot. It makes me feel good. I can feel misera... Read more
My Friend in the Mirror
Friday, October 26, 2012      11 comments

I've never had much of a problem with what I saw in the mirror. Somehow I've always seen myself as pretty, and I've never considered myself to look bad when I saw myself in the mirror. Sure, some days my skin was pretty bad, or I didn't wear mak... Read more
What type of eater are you?
Wednesday, October 24, 2012      16 comments

I am not an emotional eater. When I am upset, I usually don't eat. When I'm angry, I clean. (My apartment is usually not SUPER clean, but you wouldn't get grossed out by it either, unless you're one of those super germaphobe types.) I guess I'm ... Read more
Man I have been slacking lately...
Monday, October 22, 2012      7 comments

Not on Sparking, but on blogging. I haven't felt well this week, with post nasal drip and a sore throat. It went away two days ago but came back last night after a small coughing fit. I see my doc this evening and he's going to be so frakking pr... Read more

I'm still not feeling 100%, but I didn't want to leave you guys waiting, since it's been more than a week since my last blog. I have had a very busy weekend. Saturday I worked until 2 pm, then drove 1 1/2 hours to a friend's son's 3r... Read more
Bingley's Visit to Roundtree Farm (w/Pictures)
Monday, October 08, 2012      12 comments

I love my dog. My husband and I don't have any kids (yet, although I am 31 and he is 37 and neither of us is in any hurry) so we treat our dog Bingley like our kid. Bingley goes to work with me every day and on Friday he went on a walk to the ba... Read more
Finding the Funny in Weight Loss
Friday, October 05, 2012      16 comments

A lot of us take this weight loss thing very seriously. I am usually very good with avoiding things that are bad for me, except for 2 things: pizza and donuts. Pizza is my #1 weakness all around. I crave it, and I think about it at strange times... Read more
Six Months and 31 lbs.
Thursday, October 04, 2012      18 comments

When I first started my journey last October, I weighed 275 lbs. That put me in obesity class II. I spent the first 6 months of my journey just watching my diet, cutting out soda and trying to walk some for exercise. I lose 23 lbs this way witho... Read more
The Anniversary Dinner Blog
Sunday, September 30, 2012      11 comments

My husband and I have been married four years, and in those four years that has been a lot of crap thrown at us (3 deaths, 2 unemployments, immigration laws, etc). We've managed to make it through fairly unscathed, and I frequently tell people t... Read more
Seven Pounds
Saturday, September 29, 2012      14 comments

For someone my age and height (5'11"), a BMI calculator says 214 lbs is no longer Obese. (I know BMI is not accurate, I'm just using it for goal-setting purposes.) This morning I weighed in at 220.9. I may not be losing as fast as I was in the b... Read more

Costume Updates!!!
Monday, September 24, 2012      18 comments

So today, since both my husband and I have off on Mondays, we went shopping. He recently got a hefty bonus from work, and while most of it has gone to paying off credit card debt, we decided to spend a little on ourselves. Hubby said he wanted t... Read more
Halfway There!!!
Friday, September 21, 2012      14 comments

So this morning I weighed in like I do every morning, although I only log losses on the SparkPeople tracker. My Wii Fit does a great job of storing all my data for me on a handy dandy chart, so I can see my fluctuations. This morning, however, w... Read more
Why I Was STARVING Yesterday...
Wednesday, September 19, 2012      16 comments

I decided to Google whether or not women burn more calories while menstruating, since yesterday I could not get enough to eat. I was HUNGRY and I was CRABBY because I didn't want to eat more. In the end I wound up eating more and I went to bed f... Read more
Ask and Ye Shall Receive
Tuesday, September 18, 2012      11 comments

I used to be afraid to special order anything at a restaurant. I was afraid my simple request would be considered too much work and my food would be treated poorly in retaliation. (I've seen the movie Waiting.) But lately, I haven't had much tro... Read more
