Thursday, February 11, 2016      1 comments

Well I've slipped again. Months ago with food, but even exercise has slipped since Christmas. But I'm back at it. Fighting the good fight with the food too. I've changed my treadmill routine from 3mph to 2.5 at 1% incline. My legs are sore so th... Read more
Think I've figured it out.

I've been having trouble losing lately and not really a plateau but a sabotage. It took about two weeks to lose the last 3 lbs to get to 100 lbs lost. And since I had my sleeve done in March I should still be losing weight at a faster rate. Two ... Read more

Day 2 of back on track
Friday, June 26, 2015      0 comments

Okay so I had a bit of a SNAFU yesterday. Got my exercise in but got a little crazy with the snacks and went quite a bit over my calorie range. Not gonna beat myself up. That is just a slippery slope to failure. I AM DOING THIS. I've gotten rid ... Read more

Well, here I am again. Fallen off the wagon for the millionth time. But I'm not gonna dwell on it. All I can do is get back up and hop on again. Walked the past two days and I will keep it up. I have around 100 more pounds to lose and that is wh... Read more
Been slacking on exercise
Monday, May 04, 2015      0 comments

the last few days I've had trouble getting myself on the treadmill. I have been running around doing stuff and most days I'm at the same burn level as with exercise. Just getting worried cause I'm not as motivated as I had been. I have to get ba... Read more

Bought "The Spark" and now I'm back at it!!!!!
Monday, May 16, 2011      1 comments

Well a few months ago, I basically gave up. For about the millionth time. Some of that probably had to do with the fact that I stopped taking my anti-depressants. It is a unwise thing to do, and one that I have done more than once. And quite fra... Read more
So completely tired of Agoraphobia!!!!
Monday, February 21, 2011      3 comments

Okay so having agoraphobia really, really SUCKS!!!!! I don't have any space for exercise equipment in my house. Which means that I have to go somewhere to exercise. A bit of a catch 22. Makes it very easy to decide not to exercise much. Also a c... Read more

Well the more documentaries I watch and the more I read leaves me scared to eat anything but organic foods. Since they tend to be more expensive, I can't do everything organic. I've been trying to buy most of my fruits and veggies organic and no... Read more
Stress and Boredom
Sunday, February 13, 2011      1 comments

Stress and boredom are my biggest enemies when it comes to eating the right foods and most especially eating the right amount. Eating an entire bag of baby carrots isn't much better than a candy bar or chips! Having anxiety disorders doesn'... Read more

Okay. Cravings SUCK!!! I have an absolute addiction to sugar. Everyone says "eat fruit its sweet" but I dont want fruit I want ice cream and cookies and brownies. What makes this so hard for me is a lack of willpower. Is there anyway to overcome... Read more
