Well it's been a pretty good week not too stressful, although the heat is starting to bug me (not used to this 36C weather and with the humidex it feels like 44C and I don't know my conversions well enough to tell you on the Farenhiet scale all ... Read more

This is one of those musing type entries. I am trying to track down why I'm so hard on myself and feel like a failure when everyone else tells me I'm doing well. I'm 37 and have been with the same man for over half my life (we met at my si... Read more

I will update my weight and measurements then. I am afraid I didn't do as well as I'd hoped which is to drop to at least 140 lbs. (about 7 lbs.). I am not sure that I have but we'll see tomorrow. I spent an hour this afternoon playing DDR... Read more
Ugh....Took photos today

I am not happy with what I'm seeing. I know it more a vanity thing than anything else but 144 lbs on a 5'3" frame is not working for me. I will post pictures after I get down to 134 lbs and see if the difference is noticable. ... Read more

I've gone to my doctor numerous times about this and he has done blood work and other tests to try and find a cause and the only thing we can come up with is sleep deprivation. I am having trouble sleeping and have been for about 6 months now. ... Read more
Warning about exercise/calorie intake
Friday, July 10, 2009      1 comments

Ok so each week (only been here for 3), I track my calories and exercise and keep coming up with calories spent are way higher than calories taken in you need to adjust. I just don't see that what I'm doing is that strenuous but I do find that ... Read more
