Almost a year ago (11 months and a day, not that I'm counting), I left my now ex-husband and moved into an apartment by myself. I had put on a little weight since my lowest (158), but I attributed it to the stress of preparing for a life on my o... Read more

So for those that may not know (and I'm sure most of you do), there's a reason I've sort of fallen off of the face of the earth: I am, as of yesterday, divorced. I will not go into detail as to what happened out of respect for my privacy an... Read more

Monday, June 27, 2011      21 comments

So my homegirls are getting ready to start another challenge, which I'm grateful for. The past few challenges, my head hasn't been "in it", and so I spend the first few days of it trying to get into a good brainspace. Then I feel like I'm behind... Read more

The decisions I make may define my situation, but my situations do not define me. I may be in an unhealthy place currently, but that does not mean I must resign myself to live an unhealthy life. The power to change my situation and my ... Read more

One of my challenges for today is to talk about what I struggle with most during weight loss. Well, given how the last 10-12 months have gone, I really could say "maintaining healthy habits" - but to be perfectly honest, it's always been exercis... Read more

I've had a difficult time coming to terms with "starting over" on Spark. It seems so... I dunno, all-or-nothing? Like it's me admitting complete and utter defeat, and throwing my hands up in the air and starting from square one. It would be like... Read more

I've been reflecting today on how... well, crappy the last year has been. Alllllllllllll sorts of things have happened, both mentionable and unmentionable, that have put my head in a whirlwind and my butt in a bigger pair of jeans. But I di... Read more

...crawling, because I forgot how to run. I've been trapped in my own head since about March. So many things going on in my life with the death and illness of various family members, work stresses, personal stresses... I let them get t... Read more

(First off - I know I owe a more "what the heck has been going on and why did I disappear" blog. But for now, I am jumping back into this with both feet, and rather than dwell on what's behind me, I'm going to get excited for what's to come. Hen... Read more

Hm, August 3. D'oh. I'm a little bit rusty at this monthly goal-making thing (haven't done it in awhile), so I'm a couple days late. Buuuuuuuut here goes. ... Read more

Having a hard time today. Feeling overwhelmed. Like I can't "get back to it." Like I'm so far derailed that the train has exploded into itty bitty bits. But I'm trying. I'm putting this here as a reminder to myself that I'm moving forward, even ... Read more
Lessons from my elders.
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      31 comments

This blog has been rolling around in my head for awhile, but only now do I feel strong enough to actually sit down and write it. As many of you know, my maternal grandfather passed away on Father's Day this year at 88 years old. It wasn't ... Read more
