The Long Long Journey
Wednesday, July 28, 2010      8 comments

I have been looking at my weight loss journey as a really long rode trip. In my head, I have analogies for all sorts of things that play in this scenario. My ego, my super ego, and my id are all taking a road trip together (psychology major-ba... Read more
It's Been Over A Year, but I Still Haven't Fully Adjusted Mentally
Sunday, July 18, 2010      9 comments

I just realized that I have been wearing "normal" sized clothing for over a year now. I made my first size 16 purchase in May of 2009, and in January of 2010 I got into a 10. I have gained almost 15 pounds since April of this year, but I am st... Read more

I want to lose 20 pounds this summer. That is the 10 I gained due to lack of sleep and stress, along with an additional 10. I can do it. I was so close to reaching my goal when life threw a big monkey wrench in my plans. I felt like ta... Read more
Feeling Strong

Yesterday I went to take in my recycling. At the center I go to, I have to separate the items by type, and put in them in these yellow trash cans. I had a full can of plastic, one half full of glass, and one a fourth full aluminum. I parked ... Read more
Little by Little

I am in a tough financial situation these days due to an unemployed spouse. He has been laid off before, it's not uncommon with his position (Quality Engineering Manager-Quality always seems to get cut first). We are in a situation that we hav... Read more

My weight is up a little. I need to bring it back down. I stocked up on healthy food today from my farmer's market. I went on a two hour walk with fellow local sparkers this morning. I am going to get my diet and fitness back under control. ... Read more
Fridays Haven't Been Good Diet Days
Friday, May 14, 2010      2 comments

I weigh myself nearly everyday on my Wii Fit. I have been staying at the same weight lately (which I am okay with, but it's not preferred). I looked at the scatter plot graph recently and noticed that Fridays and the weekend I go up, and the r... Read more

My daughter turned 9 yesterday. My friend and fellow sparker LILHLFPINT signed us up for the Revlon run/walk 5k (Thank you Mary!!!). It was my daughter's first 5k (mine too, but I have done a 10K and a half marathon before). My daughter told ... Read more
Hanging Out in the 170's
Monday, April 26, 2010      9 comments

I have gone up and down in the 179-172 range for the last few months. I think that is okay right now. I like losing, and some day I will reach that goal of 150. It just might not be right now. My life has been hectic and I have a lot of chan... Read more

It sucks losing weight during a major recession, especially when that recession effects my life personally. I have seen my lifestyle go down the last few years. It's at the point now, where I have an unemployed husband and I am working late ho... Read more
"Gaunt" really?
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      8 comments

My husband used a very unflattering term last night. He said I was looking "gaunt", and then expressed concerned that I was losing too much weight. I haven't had anyone use the word "gaunt" to describe me before, and I think I am far from "gau... Read more
I Got The Dress Zipped!

I bought a tiny dress for $5 at an antique swap meet about a year ago. I told myself that when I fit into this tiny little dress that I was throwing myself a cocktail party to celebrate. The dress has the tiniest little waist. This morning I ... Read more
No Time for Dinner
Friday, April 02, 2010      5 comments

Although I am not working the most ideal shift, I really like my new second job. It's a bit empowering to know that I can make enough to pay our big old mortgage. With my new job, I am leaving my house at 10:15 a.m. and I return at a little af... Read more

Okay..., today I got on the Wii and I was down like 3 pounds and I was down a pound the previous day as well. So instead of being 3 pounds up this month, I am .4 of a pound down. I am happy with that. It is in the right direction. Next month... Read more
