Monday, October 21, 2019      11 comments

So at last, I reversed the course I was heading in, and lost the weight I had put back on. I have lost a total of 75lbs since starting 3.75 years ago! Honestly, it doesn't feel like much of an accomplishment, because I'm kind of weirded out that... Read more
Uh oh... Weight gain!
Friday, August 02, 2019      1 comments

Well, this is a first. I have been losing weight consistently for 3.5 years, after hitting my high due to medical problems. I found medical interventions that finally worked better for me, and it was slowly coming off. Now, suddenly I have gaine... Read more

Well, I have finally lost the 65lbs I set out to. 66lbs lost now, actually. It took me 3 years and 4 months of trying, and just under 3 years of being on Spark, to do it. Being stuck in bed a lot with a serious illness that slows my metabo... Read more

I'm having a hard time.. I have lost 61lbs now, and am only 4 lbs away from hitting my original goal. But I am very sad about what's happened to my body. And I'll be honest, I'm feeling really insecure. I wish I never got sick and added all thes... Read more
60 lbs lost, and nearing goal!
Thursday, November 29, 2018      8 comments

I have these days. In this journey, there is a lot of buildup, a lot of longing, a lot of fantasizing what the future will bring, and agonizing over how long it will take to get there. And then, you get there, and the amount of work and energy a... Read more
Soooo hungry...
Tuesday, November 27, 2018      7 comments

Dying right now. Very close to hitting a new number, and I already ate enough today because I had some higher calorie items. But, it was not enough food volume of course. So to pass the time, I wrote a comment in the forums of a list of internat... Read more
54 lbs, and the goal coming closer
Saturday, October 20, 2018      6 comments

So the last entry was about a month ago, at 50 lbs, and now I've hit 54 lbs lost. For me, that's lightning-speed weight loss, compared to the old days. It means I'm finding medications that work for me, so my circulation and organs are working m... Read more
Down 50 lbs - What has changed
Saturday, September 22, 2018      2 comments

Well, this has been a long journey. I had been keeping a running list of progress over 25 weeks, and I stopped not because I wasn't making progress, but because that progress did not come with a single pound of weight loss. Maybe I should have k... Read more

Week 4 of 25
Saturday, February 17, 2018      3 comments

OK, so 1 month down of roughly 6. This week was incredibly hard. I had to wait all day to even find the energy to type this - but thankfully, I'm feeling a little better at the moment. It's hard to measure success in a situation like... Read more
Week 3 of 25
Sunday, February 11, 2018      4 comments

OK, so Week 3 was successful, but I don't feel very excited about it. I'm exhausted because I had a bunch of hard work to do, and sticking to any kind of exercise or anything was really hard. I had a really bad heart incident at the beginning of... Read more
Week 2 of 25
Saturday, February 03, 2018      4 comments

OK, well, this week was awful! I have new roommates, and they overflowed and clogged the only toilet we have all week, making it unusable, and causing damage. It has been soooo stressful! This is why being a landlord often costs more money... Read more
Week 1 of 25
Saturday, January 27, 2018      5 comments

OK, so it's time to check in. I don't have a lot of energy, and typing is difficult, so I won't say too much. But, I had successes and I had failures this week, like I probably will every week in this 25-week experiment. I need to be patien... Read more
How To Deal With Pain When Pain Is All There Is
Sunday, January 21, 2018      3 comments

I did too much. Last night, after watching some weight loss stuff, I got to thinking, 'If I can hula hoop for 30 min, surely I could walk! I have got to stop babying myself...I have been laying here enough hours for recovery!' And so, after... Read more
