New goals to go with my new buddy...
Thursday, June 19, 2014      5 comments

I set out in search of a goal buddy yesterday and found someone great! We've started emailing and the best thing is that we both have such similar goals. We're in the same range at least in weight, though she's got the lead on me by 20+ lbs and ... Read more
Is it possible to ween yourself off sugar?
Tuesday, June 17, 2014      4 comments

I have a terrible time with sugar. Hypothyroidism doesn't help, unfortunately, and it could be a while yet before we find a treatment that works for me. I try to go without sugar, I really do. The fog hits, the lack of energy, the aches an... Read more
Whole Foods
Monday, June 09, 2014      3 comments

Saturday I hit up Whole Foods for the first time. I really wish I hadn't been short on time, I could have spent a couple of hours in there going down every aisle, reading labels, and really getting an idea of what I can utilize for my money. I f... Read more
Replacing dairy on a Paleo "diet"...
Tuesday, June 03, 2014      3 comments

I'm transitioning to a Paleo way of eating. I hate the word diet. I can "manage" lunch, dinner and snacks while I learn how to do this and what to eat, but my biggest and first roadblock of the day is breakfast. I'm very loyal to smoothies an... Read more
Looking at 2014
Friday, January 10, 2014      3 comments

Last year was a bust weight wise. I gained 15 lbs. I knew mid way something was off with my body but I didn't proactively do anything about it until November. That's when I was finally given the diagnosis I'd been wanting. Hypothyroidism. I was ... Read more
November goals...
Friday, November 01, 2013      2 comments

I have 2 goals in November...aside from the usual 8 waters a day, which I'm getting better at. 1. No nachos or chips with dip. One of my biggest weaknesses/tempations/binges is those cans of salsa con queso. YES! I know how bad that stuff ... Read more
Struggling lately...
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      8 comments

I thought I'd get back to my normal routine once September started. Instead, I've been snacking every night, drinking Pepsi almost every day, only getting 4-6 waters in per day, zero exercise, and lots and lots of laying on the couch watching t.... Read more

I've battled ( I hate this term because it implies you win more than you lose which isn't always the case) depression since I was 13. That's when I was first diagnosed with clinical depression and received treatment for it. I've been off and on ... Read more
Weight Loss Surgery...My Decision
Thursday, June 20, 2013      13 comments

I've been on a waiting list for weight loss surgery for 2 years. That was just for the orientation, which I took part in yesterday. I went in 95% sure I wasn't going to do it. I left 100% sure. I was the smallest person there and that felt... Read more
My vicious cycle...
Tuesday, June 11, 2013      5 comments

I've observed a pattern in my life that needs to end. It's so obvious, honestly, it's embarrassing it's taken me so long to notice it. I was always aware that this happens, but I didn't recognize the ongoing pattern. There are two parts. M... Read more
My juicing adventures.
Monday, June 10, 2013      7 comments

I'm new to juicing. I meant to finish reading, "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" before I embarked on this journey but I lack patience and follow through. My new juicer was taunting me from the closet where it sat it in the unopened box. So I decided ... Read more
My ongoing grief.
Friday, May 17, 2013      5 comments

It's been 15 months since I lost my dad and it still hits me like a truck every day. Every day at some point I remember him and feel his absence. It's harder for me I think because I worked for him and my family and I have continued on with his ... Read more

I had a melt down last night. I planned my workout. I grabbed everything I needed for it. I even blogged about it. But it didn't happen. I was late leaving work, had errands to run that took FAR too long and then my brother wouldn't stop calling... Read more
My brother is mad at me...again.
Tuesday, April 30, 2013      4 comments

What else is new? LOL. I stopped getting upset a long time ago. He was completely unsupportive of me getting a used treadmill. He said I wouldn't use it and he refused to help me pick it up. I did it myself. Now...I don't use it much. Here's why... Read more
