I have not had an easy time lately, due to some ongoing emotional stuff, working more than usual and not getting enough sleep…this may sound strange, but lately I have been stretching my legs in my sleep in a way that gives me a cramp that wakes... Read more
Monthly Weigh In

Today was my monthly weigh in. I lost 3 lbs, and am now at 190 lbs, total of 43 lbs lost. Considering the fact that Feb. was not an easy month and that I felt like I was kind of hanging on and going through the motions, I am very happy wit... Read more
Exciting Discovery
Tuesday, February 28, 2012      0 comments

I made an exciting discovery today. Many days at work, I will walk around my office campus once during the morning, and once during the afternoon. This takes under 10 minutes and I know from my Fitbit that I burn between 50-60 calories doing it.... Read more
Just Checking In…I’m Still Here
Saturday, February 25, 2012      2 comments

I didn’t mean for it to be so long between blogs. When I started blogging, I had not really decided how often I would do it. My idea was that it would evolve and I would see if I would do it at regular times or just when the spirit moved me. I h... Read more
This week did not go as planned
Thursday, February 09, 2012      4 comments

Well…. This has not been the easiest week. I ate more than I wanted to at least 2 nights this week, and so far have not accomplished everything that I wanted. I didn’t even post any goals. I think that I know why, though. Thi... Read more

So I had my monthly weigh-in today. I lost 1 lb, which brings me to 40 lbs lost. 10 more lbs (183) will make 50 lbs and 20 more lbs (173) will not only make 60 lbs, but will also be a big milestone because it will mean that I will have a NORMAL ... Read more
Another Non-Scale Victory: Dealing with Anger
Thursday, February 02, 2012      5 comments

Today, during the last hour or two of work, two people did things that made me very angry. One situation is one that probably can’t be changed, one of those “it is what it is” situations, without me leaving this job. But someone treated me... Read more
THOSE jeans, goals for week, and weigh-in coming up!
Monday, January 30, 2012      3 comments

Happy Monday! This morning was one of those mornings when I was considering putting off my trip downstairs to the gym until tonight. It was SO hard to get going…I had a couple of days like that last week, too. But once I got there and got ... Read more

A rough patch
Tuesday, January 24, 2012      3 comments

This is not the blog that I had planned to post tonight, (I have another one I wrote that I’ll post soon) but it is probably a blog that I need to post. I am not eating now, I did stop myself a couple of hours ago and started doing other things,... Read more
The Dreaded Elliptical…a non-scale victory
Wednesday, January 18, 2012      7 comments

I’ll admit that this blog came in handy today. I used it to bribe myself to stay on the “dreaded elliptical” for longer than I ever have been before, 30 minutes. I told myself that if I did it, then I could blog about it. 30 minutes probabl... Read more
The silver lining to working today.....
Monday, January 16, 2012      3 comments

.....is that I was the ONLY one in my apartment building gym this morning, which has been extra crowded lately! Winter/January blaahhhhhs were kicking in this weekend, a couple of weeks late. This makes me want to eat, and I ate more than I... Read more

Friday, January 13, 2012      4 comments

A year ago (Jan 2011) I found Sparkpeople on the latest (and so far, most successful, and hopefully LAST) weight loss journey of my life. I decided to celebrate my “Sparkversary” month by FINALLY creating a Sparkpage and starting to blog. I... Read more
