Don't we all ask ourselves how we got to this point? Ten years. That's how. Ten years of lackadaisical choices. Ten years of making bad eating and exercise decisions.

That's how much I've spent on new shoes, an exercise bike, and a fitbit. I used to know this girl in college who would break down her college courses by price, and then the cost per day. If she missed or skipped, she considered it money down the... Read more

Last night I had a large piece, though I'm not feeling guilty about it. Life is too short and chocolate is too good.... Read more

Oy! Both my husband and I caught a bug over the weekend. We've been pulling shifts, because neither child is ill and they both have more energy than ever. Heh!... Read more
And, here we are again.

The never ending battle of the bulge! So, I gave up for a while. Then while my youngest was playing on the scale, he motioned me to get on it, too. UGH! I need to glue that thing to my feet! My grandmother died in February, and we've decid... Read more
"Remember when you lost all that weight?"
Friday, June 24, 2011      0 comments

That really has to be one of the hardest things to hear, weight-wise. My husband and I were looking through old photos of our kids, when I had lost thirty pounds, basically by starving myself. I was eating 1100 calories a day, and it became an o... Read more

Finally, they're over. Finally, tine for myself! Good grief, those were some long and horrible hours.... Read more
Blue Eyeshadow!

I've met a bet with my best friend: If he doesn't quit smoking by Christmas, he has to speak with a British accent for the month of January, even at work. If I don't reach my goal or 185 lbs by Christmas, I have to wear electric blue eyeshadow f... Read more

Hey, it's been a while. We decided to move into a three-bedroom apartment so both of the boys have their own rooms... which is actually a bit odd. I miss having the wee babe in our room. And of course, moving just threw me off. The good news is ... Read more

Near-drowning experience

So, we looked away for a couple of minutes, and when we looked back, the H-Bomb was on the bottom of the pool. My husband jumped in fully-clothed and saved him. We don't know how long he was under: hopefully only ten seconds. He coughed, cried, ... Read more
No longer in the 200s!

Yesterday I logged 9,000+ steps on my pedometer (how much of that was jiggling the wee babe, I don't know), and I was exhausted by the end of the day. The key to my weight loss may be keeping busy. And keeping busy for me, usually involves spend... Read more
What is it about the weekends?
Tuesday, July 06, 2010      5 comments

This is three weekends in a row where I lose my motivation and staying power. I'm guessing it's the lack of schedule: the husband is home and it throws everything off. I should try to pretend it's just another week day. I've actually gained a po... Read more

Ever since moving here, I have eyeballed this hill in my neighborhood. Can it even be classified as a hill? It's more of a mountain! While driving up that hill, I have to put my poor little car into third gear and sing words of encouragement to ... Read more
A monkey on my back, and a baby on my front!
Sunday, June 27, 2010      4 comments

So, I fell off the wagon for a couple of days. I was sick, the husband has been working long hours, and I was feeling sorry for myself. It's easy to admit that I'm an emotional eater. Of course, I think about my weight constantly, even to the po... Read more
