This is my weight chart, beginning from when I started on Sparkpeople in January of 2009. It's not 100% accurate of course as I didn't use SP for long stretches of time.
My highest point is April of 2012 - 213 lbs. My lowest (before this pa... Read more
I feel as though a lot of changes are happening to my body all at once, even though this has been a 10-month process so far (this time around). Since last April, I have:
*Lost 37.4 lbs (around 30 still to go!);
*Lost 6" from my waist, 5" ... Read more
So hear me out...
I had a Catholic best friend in high school, and nearly ever since I have given up (or attempted to give up) something during Lent. I've never really thought much about it, it was just a convenient timeframe in which to te... Read more
I am hovering around the same weight I have been at since before Thanksgiving. That's OK, and I'm really glad I didn't gain over the holidays, but I'm ready to start losing again. It has been harder than I thought it would be to get back on trac... Read more
I absolutely love the holidays. Thanksgiving is my favorite, but the whole season just makes me happy. I am not one of those people like my best friend, who says, "Any month with 'BER' in it is OK for Christmas music," but I delight in all the g... Read more
As of this morning I weigh 30.4 lbs less than I did six months ago; 55.4 lbs less than my all-time high a few years ago. I have about 35 lbs before I reach my goal range.
I contribute my success so far to a number of changes over several y... Read more
I was raised in the Clean Plate Club - 'wasting' food was about the worst thing you could do!
However, I realized recently that if I am finishing that extra stuff left on my plate when I am not hungry and don't need it, or that last piece ... Read more
This is really going to be a stream of consciousness type blog more than anything. I feel the need to connect.
I'm really proud of myself you guys. It's like I'm finally listening to myself after years of ignoring what I k... Read more
I wrote this up for the 5% challenge team I'm on, so I thought I would share it here as well so you can get to know me a bit if you like.
1. What is your name or nick name? I don't use my real name on SparkPeople. Call me Aggie. :)
2. ... Read more
As my knowledge and experience with Judaism is pretty much limited to the "All-of-a-Kind Family" books, I was very excited to be invited to a Passover Seder. If you're ever invited, go- no matter your religious background you will not regret it.... Read more
My new job involves several elements that make it difficult to control my wellness. It includes:
1. High stress (I am a stress eater and an emotional eater);
2. Long hours (usually 12 hr days);
3. Living in an apartment during the week,... Read more
For the I-don't-know-how-many-th time since January 2009. I lose, I gain. I lose, I gain. It should probably upset me more than it does, but honestly I just don't think about myself all that much. I was at 180 in November 2015, when I started my... Read more
I just wanted to let everyone know that things are going really well for me right now. I think this new job is going to be great (though I'm only 3 weeks in during a slack time of year, so it's kind of hard to tell), my husband and I are getting... Read more
This is an extra short blog entry because I'm at work. I have done really well with eating only when I'm hungry, etc. over the last few weeks. I have been off of my birth control pills for about 10 days due to a combination of the pharmacy makin... Read more
