A year later and here I am on this continuous heartbreaking challenge of weight loss. It can be the darkest struggle and the brightest accomplishments all rolled into one. Since my last blog post, I've had a baby (almost 4 months old), relapsed ... Read more

Today is definitely a challenge. I feel firm in my decision to get back on track; however, it feels really difficult. I keep thinking about cookies. Delicious chocolate chip cookies that I know will make me feel sick after eating them but wonder... Read more
Waiting for the Fog to Float On

About one and a half weeks ago, I decided to come off of Lexapro. It has hindered more than helped me. I've gained 28lbs since taking Lexapro and stopping birth control pills. Granted, my exercise and eating habits also changed. Lexapro has made... Read more

I decided to enter the Biggest Loser challenge at my work. We started on 1/14/13 for the first weigh in and then again today on 1/23/13. I lost 1.5lbs since last weigh in, which is good since I didn't really stick to my calories this past week. ... Read more

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      1 comments

I'm calling this blog entry Day 1, even though I've been on Sparkpeople for quite awhile, because it feels like Day 1 all over again. I've gained about 23lbs since the beginning of October 2012. I can't say that I was trying very hard to keep it... Read more

I seem to have gained 13lbs since the beginning of October. It's definitely the stress then happy phase of the wedding/honeymoon. Now, I'm just appalled with myself for gaining that much more again. I haven't been to the gym in a LONG time. I th... Read more

Friday, October 05, 2012      0 comments

I'm still losing/gaining 3-4lbs on and off. It's frustrating but I haven't been to the gym in a long time. The wedding is a week away and I'm still 10lbs from my goal, which means that goal will not be met. I've resigned myself to focus and get ... Read more
Day 502: Disappointed & Breathless
Monday, September 17, 2012      0 comments

I can't seem to get myself to where I need to be. I either gain 1-2lbs or lose 1lb. I can't get to 200lbs. I'm the same weight today as I was in April. All these months passed and here I am, no better off, except I have lost 110lbs since 2009. I... Read more

For the last 4 days, I've been eating within my calories and towards the lower end of it. I've refrained from crazy snacking and sweets. Let me just tell you: it has been so difficult. I have 10 lbs to lose in 5 weeks to reach my goal weight of ... Read more

I managed to get to the gym twice this week and burnt my calories that were required. I'm going to work out at home tonight since Alicia can't get daycare at the gym on Fridays. I did eat pizza twice this week; however, it was within my calories... Read more

The wedding is official 6 weeks away! And, we came home from our cruise to the Bahamas on Saturday. Fortunately, I only gained 1lb on the cruise, despite the multitude of delicious food. I think I exercised it out with walking, stair climbing an... Read more

It's been quite a while since I last posted on here. I've been having some extreme ups and downs, especially with eating and the gym. I've not gone to the gym (except one time) in the last month and change. I'm correcting that...TODAY! I have a ... Read more

Thursday, July 26, 2012      3 comments

Thank you everyone for the comments. They really do brighten my day. I had such a strange dream last night that I decided to look it up in the Dream Dictionary. My dream was about a mother pig and baby pigs in a big oven being cooked alive. Pret... Read more
Day 448: Breaking Mirrors
Wednesday, July 25, 2012      3 comments

Ever since this 5.5lb weight gain, I feel somewhat hopeless. The medication has zapped the "push" I get to want to exercise or lose weight that I guess came from the anxiety related to it. I'm beginning to wonder if the medication isn't a good t... Read more

After a weekend of our water heater breaking, we spent the week (last week) eating terribly. I managed to gain 5.5lbs in one week! So, now I'm trying to mentally recover from that BLOW. I've been trying to do better since this weekend. I've been... Read more
