Thursday, August 14, 2014      2 comments

My baby is 8 months old. He is finally not nursing much anymore (I have supply issues due to IGT and usually restricting my calories at all drastically cuts my milk supply - my body sees it as a non-essential function and cuts milk way before an... Read more
Motivation in spades.

I have been between 171 and 167 for like 6 months now. Working hard, but not hard enough to make any downward progress. But this is the month!! Motivation #1: We are taking our kids on a surprise trip to Disneyland, which equals two-fold m... Read more
Strep. And a new diet. (for me)
Wednesday, November 07, 2012      1 comments

I haven't had this since I was a young teenager! (I don't think) It's been fairly awful, sore-throat-wise, but not too bad otherwise. No fever, aches, etc. I thought it was just a bad cold for the first few days. I'm glad I finally went to the d... Read more
New dedication, New goal
Tuesday, October 09, 2012      2 comments

I'm not sure what to think of my weight-loss journey. I have been losing and gaining the same 5 lbs for the last 5 months. (Staying between 175 and 170) On the surface that doesn't look good. But at the same time, I know my long gym sessions hav... Read more

I'm currently in a pretty rural area, and there aren't a lot of options, but a Women's 24-hour fitness center recently opened up and I went to check it out today. It's only $20 a month for gym use, and more than that if you want to do any classe... Read more

These are things that in place to help me reach my goal (11 lbs in the next 7 weeks): *My husband is in another state, so if I don't want to eat/make dinner, or just grab something super simple, depending on how calories are doing, I can! (ie.... Read more
Need to get my Spark back
Friday, July 20, 2012      2 comments

The last 6 weeks have been crazy. In that time we decided we were going to move back to "the other coast" (near family) and start a life there (including a chiropractic practice - starting a business?=stress) instead of staying here for 1-2 more... Read more
It happened...

I've lost about 15 lbs, but it's been over a 5 months period, and no one has really said anything. Not a big deal; I don't feel -that- different am I'm not around a lot of people super regularly (no family or anything) and my husband can't prete... Read more
Positive thoughts, people
Monday, May 07, 2012      3 comments

The last 6 weeks I have seen very little progress. I know half of that included vacation time, but STILL. I am only down about a lb from where I was in March. A little frustrating. But I'm trying NOT to be too frustrated, knowing that I'm still ... Read more
A "bad" day
Friday, April 13, 2012      3 comments

I felt a little out of control today. You know when you're losing weight, and your body is trying to get you to compensate? At least that's what my body seems to do. I lost a pound and a half last week (and got -below- my pre-3-week-vacation wei... Read more
One lb up. And excited?
Thursday, April 05, 2012      3 comments

I am. I have been "on vacation" for exactly 3 weeks. At home. And there was a wedding with two receptions full of cake and other such nonsense, which I love. But this morning (after traveling all day yesterday and not getting quite enough water)... Read more
Good news and bad news
Tuesday, April 03, 2012      2 comments

Well, the bad news is that I ended up with a stomach virus yesterday. Really really REALLY hoping none of my small children get it before we fly all day on Wednesday. Lots of good news though. Best thing that could have happened for my weight... Read more

and I'm addicted to sugar. I really am. Being "on vacation," and not counting my calories (I've -tried,- it's just not happening has led me to eat things I wouldn't otherwise, and I am in full-blown sugar-craving craziness right now. Do you K... Read more

So, my dad has been overweight for like 20+ years (he's 55). His parents were quite overweight most of their adult lives, and a large percentage of his relatives are overweight. He is about 5'9 and he was around 235 18 months ago. ... Read more

Tuesday, March 20, 2012      0 comments

Sorry if anyone has noticed that I'm M.I.A. I'm almost a week into my trip, and the first week has been positive. Health-wise I haven't made the best choices, but I haven't made the worst ones. I'm up about 2 lbs, but I know some of that is wate... Read more
