My amazing daughter was pinned last night for her completion of the Radiology Program at her school. I am blown away that I gave birth to three amazing girls who have their acts together. However, seeing the pictures of me beside these amazing ... Read more
I am not fat...
Sunday, February 05, 2017      3 comments

I've gained back most of the weight that I lost using a prescription weight loss aid. I kept it off without the prescription for about 18 months. Then, over the last 4 months, added about 30 pounds due to stress eating. But I'm not fat. I h... Read more

Friday, March 11, 2016      1 comments

I cannot believe that I have maintained a streak of logging into Sparkpeople for 114 days. On top of that, I have a 74 day streak of exceeding my step goal. The other day, I woke up at 545 am and started my morning routine. OH NO - my Fitbit ... Read more

I cannot believe it's been so long since I last blogged. I have lost 35 lbs. since the last blog. I have been walking regularly and fit bit challenges are a great motivator. I keep drinking my water and tracking my food. I am not obsessed wi... Read more

The hubby and I got away for the weekend with my parents. We are in the 5th wheel, beside a beautiful lake, and while the parents are in town and the hubby (still lol), I get a moment of solitude. That doesn't happen often. Maybe I don't allow ... Read more
Day 32 - My first visit with a nutritionist
Monday, March 30, 2015      2 comments

As part of my company's wellness plan, they pay for me to meet with a nutritionist monthly. I knew that they did a number of things, but I didn't know that this service was covered until last week. It was an AMAZING consultation. In just 30 mi... Read more
Day 14 - Keep on keeping on
Wednesday, March 11, 2015      2 comments

Blogging keeps me motivated - when I quit blogging, I lose motivation. I think it's because I am journaling (in a sense) and by sharing my random thoughts, it keeps me focused on the various reasons that I am making the choices that I make. So... Read more
Day 13 and still streaking
Tuesday, March 10, 2015      3 comments

Streaks play an important part to this program. I am not sure why I have over complicated the process before now. However, I am on day 13 of consistently meeting my water and step goals. Maybe it's the realization that I don't have to conquer th... Read more

I'm back. Again. And I know that I am not the only person here who has had multiple "day one" days. Technically, it's more like day 3 but, because it's my first day blogging, we make today Day One. In the past, when I tried to lose wei... Read more
Day 61 laser tag
Saturday, July 26, 2014      0 comments

We went to a fun park for my hubby's birthday and I played laser tag. The place is two stories tall and involved a great deal of running and climbing. I would never have been able to do it without dying 2 months ago. I am far from being where I ... Read more

I leave for Universal in January. My mantra whenever I want to go off plan is "Universal Fat Police". I have heard if you attempt to ride certain things at Universal and you look like someone who may not fit on their rides, they pull you aside ... Read more
