Tomorrow is exactly one year since I began my SP journey. I've had ups and downs, but overall, I am absolutely thrilled with how I have done. A peer in one of my classes even told me I was her inspiration to get herself back in shape. Amazing... Read more

Saturday, January 19, 2008      1 comments

So today I got up and had no desire to go to the gym. I have to walk .75 miles each way and I just did not want to do it. Don't make me, don't make me, don't make me. I reluctantly got out of bed and did a little of this, a little of that... Read more

Never in my entire life have I been a size 8. Ever. I went from shopping in kids, to wearing a sizes 9, 11, and 13 in juniors, to 14 in women's. But never a size 8. Until this weekend. My birthday is next Thursday, so when I went ho... Read more

Just now, on the one scale, my weight came out as being 150.6! Since it's not my weigh-in day, I'm not changing anything on SparkPeople (because I know about daily and weekly weight fluctuations), but just to see that number was incredible. Al... Read more

I recently started a clinical internship at a large medical practice, and I've met a lot of great people there. Today, I found out that this one girl who I've gotten to know fairly well has lost ONE HUNDRED AND TWELVE POUNDS on Weight Watchers.... Read more

I went bridesmaid dress shopping today. While it was an overall positive experience, I would love to know who thought it was a good idea to stock bridesmaid dress shops with mostly sizes four and six as the model sizes for people to try on? Th... Read more

Classes have started and I have been shocked back to reality. I had gotten so used to just working five hours a day, and now I am going back to a three-day-a-week internship and being a full-time student. Plus, today we had a seven hour counse... Read more
Motivation and positive thinking
Sunday, August 12, 2007      1 comments

My SparkPeople e-mail this morning was about how to overcome the negative things that may get in the way while changing your lifestyle that might make you give up (e.g., plateaus, injuries, etc.). While I'm fortunate enough to not be at a plate... Read more
Weigh-In Thursday
Thursday, August 09, 2007      0 comments

Clearly the name of this entry is NOT as cool as those who post on "Weigh-In Wednesday," but I think it'll be okay. :o) Well, today was weigh-in day! As Leah can attest to, I was a bit nervous about potentially gaining this week because I... Read more

It is very hot in my apartment. Weather.com says it is 94 degrees (at 6pm?!) in Boston and I live on the fourth floor without air conditioning. As I walk up the stairs to my apartment (because even if I felt like being lazy and taking the elev... Read more

I'm going to try to keep track of all the compliments I get about my new fitness level to help keep me motivated during those tough days and weeks. I've sort of plateaued here in the mid to low 160s because of how difficult it is for me to stay... Read more
