"But you have no goals!"
Saturday, November 03, 2012      9 comments

I had a reality check yesterday. For months now, I have been coasting. No food tracking. Way less water drinking. Giving myself more "freedom" with food choices because I have been running more miles weekly. Lurking on Spark with an occasi... Read more

Yo, self! Get back on the ball. There are two things you need to accomplish today. Just two. Is that too much to ask? I don't think so. 1. Drink your water. Simple. You've been slacking and you're feeling it. I know you are. 2. Stop g... Read more
really? 17 lbs?
Thursday, October 20, 2011      3 comments

I just realized that I am 17 lbs from goal weight. Really? It's just that if you look at my big saggy tummy, it feels like it should be more. I'm not trying to be stick thin. I'm just trying to get down into the healthy BMI range. 159 would be a... Read more

Really? Does it ever get any easier? LOL I am in desperate need of a new bathing suit. The old one is too big around the bottom area . I found this out last year AFTER going down a waterslide, getting a massive wedgie and having to moon ha... Read more

Comparing is a downfall of mine. I know I shouldn't do it but my inner dialogue keeps it up. I was visiting with a friend today who was telling me about her new diet. She's lost 7.5 lbs in 2 weeks. It is a very restrictive diet--something ... Read more

OK, I'm still figuring this nutrition thing out. For the past few weeks, I haven't been meeting my carb goals. I've been too low. And I kept thinking: how much bread do I have to eat? LOL Here's my lightbulb ... Read more

Officially lost 15 pounds. Great. Fabulous. Only why don't I feel great or fabulous? I'll tell you why. This is the point that I always get to and can't go any further. This last pound took 2.5 weeks to come off. I start to get discourage... Read more

June goals
Thursday, June 02, 2011      1 comments

I am almost 1/2 way to my first goal of 175. When I make it there ( I first typed "if" but I am trying to change my negative thinking), I will reassess. I haven't been 175 since I don't know when so I have no idea what I want to do beyond that..... Read more
another small victory
Saturday, May 21, 2011      1 comments

I weighed myself today and I only lost 1 lb. But what is most exciting is that I have passed that imaginary line from "obese" to "overweight". I know it's not much but it still feels like a small victory. I tried extra hard this week to wat... Read more

I have this size 12 pair of jeans that has been in my closet the last few years. I wore them a handful of times a few years ago when I had lost some weight. Needless to say, I haven't worn them since then as I had gained the weight back and was ... Read more
