Boy, my daughter gave me a whopping' case of the flu! I'm just now getting over it. Now my 4yr old has it, but he seems to be doing better. I haven't been on the site much because I've felt like garbage for most of the last week and a half. ... Read more

I just can't seem to get around it that when I work night shift I go over calories for the day! I don't get much of a rest during the day before I go in, so I don't sleep through a meal. Also, I only work 2-3 nights a week usually, so I do fee... Read more

Haven't lost any more weight, but I swear my clothes fit better! I've also had a few compliments on how I look, but that could be just that I'm "fixing myself up" these days. What sucks is that just when I was feeling good about how I looked, ... Read more

Well, Sunday was my birthday, and I had a pretty good one. My mom and I went out to dinner and a movie because we never get to spend much time together just the two of us. Tonight, the family is getting together and making me dinner! My kids ... Read more

Well, I'm off to work the midnight shift tonight, and that seems to be my toughest time. Last Weekend, I did better by Sunday, so I hope I can stay strong enough to make good decisions tonight. Fridays during Lent are rough for me because I'm ... Read more

So I was typing in my food for today, and I was sure I'd made a mistake - I'm actually quite a bit UNDER calories and fat for today!! Plus-and this is a first- I got all my recommended fiber! I'll try to remember how excited I was as I'm runni... Read more

Did really well on breakfast, I had apples and carrots instead of bagels and cream cheese. Drank WAY too much coffee, though. My friend came over for coffee, and we always drink a ton. I have been reducing my coffee intake gradually, so my bo... Read more

Alright, I put in my not so healthy choices (vanilla wafers and chips?!) for today. Holy carbs, batman!! Apparently, my body goes into some kind of salt-sugar-carb frenzy when I have a cold!! Yikes!!... Read more

Had a GREAT day yest. Took the kids sledding. The place where the kids go here to sled has some smaller and some pretty steep slopes as well. People also like to go snowboarding there, and it's a pretty vigorous climb to get to the sledding s... Read more

Had my daughter's 8th birthday party yesterday. We went roller skating and had a blast! I keep forgetting how much I enjoy skating, and it's really great exercise. The best part is that you don't feel like you're exercising because you're enj... Read more

Well, I took the first step and decided to get in better shape. This site is awesome, and I think that it will provide the motivation I need to stick with it! I'm kinda scared, because I've lost weight before and gained it back, and I've start... Read more
