Poco a poco

This last week was a success. Sure I had my slip ups here and there but for the most part I did ok. I need to break a lot of bad habits that I've accumulated throughout my lifetime. For example I need to constantly remind myself that just bec... Read more

I can't believe the last time i made a blog entry was in 2010! So much has happened since then. Although physically I've had some setbacks, some wonderful things have happened in my life, most importantly the birth of our second son. We are s... Read more

I was on SP and noticed that my last blog was in April! So much has happened since then. I don't want to go into too much detail so I'm going to sum up the last 7 months in a few lines. Was doing really well with eating and exercise and g... Read more
I'm back. Made some big purchases this week.

So I feel like I have been missing in action over the last week or so but I'm back. April is a pretty busy month for me with school and my sparkpeople activity has been limited to tracking food and excercise. Sorry if I haven't been able to ke... Read more

I'm not lost, I've just been busy with school and family in town over the last 10 days. When my Mother-in-Law got off the plane a week ago one of the first things she said was "How much weight have you lost?" She didn't know that I was l... Read more

Today was a good day. I got on the scale this morning for my weekly weigh-in and there it was...that beautiful number of 217 (it was actually 216.8 but I work in whole numbers). It has been 76 days since I started 'sparking' and I have reached... Read more

Well to those who read my last entry. I got back on track as planned and was down a few lbs this week. Thanks for all the support everyone. This past week was a nice treat. I had spring break. Instead of going somewhere fun we opted to ... Read more
Looking Forward to March
Sunday, February 28, 2010      11 comments

Where to start? Up until last week the 'journey to a new me' had been pretty smooth sailing. Consistent weight loss of 1-3lbs/week, healthy eating, lots of activity etc. Well, unfortunately this past I took a few steps backwards. Now, ... Read more
3 Things

1. Today I changed my username. When I signed up for sparkpeople a few months ago, out of convenience, I used the username that was assigned to me by my current college. It worked fine but it was a little boring and did not represent me in any... Read more
My Future Reward.

Things are going pretty well. Slowly the lbs are coming off and I'm starting to get more of those "I can't put my finger on it, but you look different" sort of comments. I have my obstacles like everyone else but the daily victories seem to ou... Read more
Where did that Chihuahua go? Ostrich egg?

After today's weigh in I have officially lost 16 lbs. It feels so good to be making some progress. Sometimes the days feel long, but the weeks go by fast. I like to use real life object to help me visualize weight loss. 16 lbs is equal to... Read more
one month down a lifetime to go

I have now been at it for one whole month. I'll admit that there were moments when I didn't think that I could do it, but at this point I've never felt so motivated and optimistic about the future. Today, for the first time, someone asked me if... Read more

Today I saw a 10lb bag of rice and realized that in the last 3 weeks I have managed to decrease my overall weight by about that much. Where was that weight hiding? I'm not sure where but I hope it doesn't find its way back to its hiding spot. ... Read more
Success Through Self-Mastery
Monday, January 18, 2010      1 comments

I feel that up until now, in many ways, I have not had any self-control over what goes into my body. I used to eat for no reason and pound back the sweets with no regard to the damage I was doing to myself. I would just eat to eat and when I f... Read more
Lessons from Week One
Thursday, January 14, 2010      1 comments

For the last 7 days I have kept track religiously of what I've eaten. I've learned a few things. 1. It is so easy to eat 'junk' calories. I didn't realize that one piece of fancy cake with ice cream could equal half of what my daily calo... Read more
