I did it. I ordered Zumba. I could blame late night infomercials (they certainly played a part) or my deep-seated desire to be a sexy latin dancer (also a component), but mostly I just wanted something new. I have a gazelle type thing tha... Read more

Alright. I'm sitting in the same chair, making the same excuses and carrying around the same giant body that has made me miserable for so many years. I'm eating my feelings and I'm not saying how I feel and I'm insecure and making a scene ever... Read more

I'm a trainer for a call center and I really kind of jumped into this position with zero background in training and a GED. I didn't want to be a call center representative any more (I'd been one non-stop for almost 5 years at the time) and my d... Read more

Clearly, this entry isn't going to be nearly as salacious as the title. It was between that and "Gimme my TWOOO DOLLAAAARRRSS" (hooray Better Off Dead). I've finally determined a good reward system for myself. I have created a pretend... Read more

Yesterday, I played racquetball. Oddly enough, it wasn't as hard as I'd made it out to be in my head. Oh sure, I missed the ball plenty of times. During doubles, I often forgot whose turn it was to hit the ball and once, I even got pegged in ... Read more

I was at 750 calories (spaced between two meals and two snacks) and completely on my food plan when I left work at 6:30 this evening. Oh sure, that seems fairly normal unless you're ME and you've just put in 10 hours and had a ton of dollar bil... Read more
