According to my goal, I have 3 weeks to lose 5 lbs. It's not a daunting goal, by any means, but considering I've been averaging 1.5 lbs/wk, it means I need to step it up a bit. Aack! I've settled into an easy weightloss lifestyle. It's one ... Read more

I'm not quite at my goal of 250lbs yet...but that's ok, because I've given myself until June 30. I weighed in at the lightest I've been since having my daughter 4 1/2 years ago. If you've had a baby, you know exactly how exciting thi... Read more

My first goal was to stick with weight loss for longer than 5 weeks. I'm now at 7 weeks. Wahoo!! What I noticed this weekend is that the last two times I attempted weight loss (since having my daughter in November 2008), I stuck with it for... Read more
April 17 UPDATE
Wednesday, April 17, 2013      4 comments

I now know why I have only stuck with this for 5 weeks at a time before.....1) After around 5 weeks I realize that all the other things I've been neglecting in order to focus on weight loss, actually do need some work too! 2) I get bored. I... Read more

(Today, ironically, the scale is back down to the weight it should be. I have upped my caloric intake in the last two days by about 200cal. So far, my theory is proven. It could also be that I had a really good sleep and then read a book this mo... Read more

Well...not the part about setting goals. But I know why I've been steadily gaining weight over the last week! It was irritating me A LOT that the scale was actually going UP in increments and not down. Just to clarify, I can handle th... Read more

Well. It has been an introspective 4 weeks. I have spent a lot of time inside my own head, and it's time to get out. I have an understanding of where my head is at, I have a clear view of where I want it to least for the next 6 months or... Read more

About goals. I have been trying all week to figure out what my goals are. I've even taken a stab at creating a bucket list. The result? I've determined that I am not, in fact, a "goal-oriented" person. (Although my resume will ALWAYS state that ... Read more

There's a certain personality type that find themselves seeking careers as teachers, nurses, social workers, caregivers.... People are our greatest joy! People are also our downfall. It's a very fine line. I genuinely enjoy people. I find ... Read more
