Post-workout pick-apart
Thursday, April 26, 2018      3 comments

I took this photo yesterday after my run-walk. I felt good! I'd run longer and a tiny bit faster than I had in a while, and I wanted to take a picture in my running clothes. However, as I tried to find good lighting and a pose I liked, I star... Read more
A day at the beach!
Monday, April 16, 2018      3 comments

On Friday, it was sunny and mild, so I told my dad that we were going to the beach after his appointment with the kidney doctor. I don’t think he believed me, in spite of the fact that I hauled a beach chair along and wore shorts. After the app... Read more
Laryngitis sucks.
Monday, April 09, 2018      6 comments

So, I started losing my voice on Saturday evening. I think it’s because my sister visited for the first time in ages, and we chatted a LOT—more than I usually do in four days’ time (I’m a fairly quiet person). I amused myself quite a bit talki... Read more

Sinus infection for the fail!
Friday, March 09, 2018      1 comments

It's only March, and this is the second time this year that I've had a sinus infection. On top of that, I've coughed so much today that my throat and torso are aching. My voice is on the raspy side of things, too. I'm trying to stay quiet, thou... Read more
Twenty-one pounds down!
Monday, September 25, 2017      8 comments

Just a small happy squee, but I'm glad I've been sticking out the plateaus and occasional bouts of hunger pains. Losing weight isn't always fun, but it is rewarding. 😊... Read more
Okay, that's weird.

Soooo, is anyone else's ticker reflecting an incorrect "current weight"? Because mine was. I'm still 179 (been at a standstill for a week now), but my ticker showed 160. While it'd be awesome to skip the whole 19 pounds in between, that, alas... Read more
I need a beginner's weight-training video so easy that a fetus can do it.
Tuesday, August 15, 2017      2 comments

No, I mean it. I lasted about 10 minutes into the weight-training video I was following on YouTube, and I had to stop because I was pretty sure I'd vomit if I continued. I still might. Ugh, I feel so pathetic. And nauseous. However, ... Read more
What's going to make it different this time?
Sunday, August 13, 2017      4 comments

As I've mentioned on my main page, my weight's gone up and down (mostly up) my whole life. I've lost significant amounts of weight twice. The first time was from Oct 2001 to Jan 2003; I lost approximately 90 pounds. I wish I could be more acc... Read more
Ten pounds down!
Saturday, August 12, 2017      6 comments

So, this isn't reflected on my weight tracker yet, since I only record my weight on Mondays, but today I am ten pounds lighter from where I started! Wheeee! I wish I was one of those people whose weight disappeared from her face first, but noooo... Read more
When it's too hot to walk outside, YouTube!
Friday, August 11, 2017      2 comments

I know, that sounds ridiculous--like, sit on your bum and mindlessly watch videos for hours! Except, not. Instead, I've discovered a TON of health and fitness videos on YouTube. I doubt I'm the first to do so; however, it was great to find al... Read more
Well, that was stupid.
Wednesday, July 26, 2017      9 comments

So, I live in the Florida Panhandle--you know, the part that's closer to Alabama than Disney World. Let me tell ya, the thought of living in the peninsula is a bit gruesome to me. I mean, it's hot and humid enough up here, thank you very much!... Read more
Have you looked at yourself naked today?
Sunday, January 06, 2013      4 comments

(I was originally going to post this under the Look Better Naked team message board, except I realized that my answer got more than a little off-topic. Therefore, I decided to post it here, where I know it won't get flagged for going on a tange... Read more
When do you stop losing weight and move into maintenance?
Thursday, November 15, 2012      4 comments

I visited my family in Florida this past weekend, and my mom said to me, "You know, you look really good where you are right now. You shouldn't try to lose too much more." This gave me pause. One, I realized that I actually WAS close to... Read more
