We're heading to the county fair in a bit, and I slipped on my favorite (size 28) capri jeans and they are TOO BIG! I wore then a week ago and they were fine (loose, but not big). I've only lost a pound since then, but I think my body caught u... Read more

So, after a 4 day vacation, the scale said I'd gained 4 pounds. Must have been water because I ate pretty darn good! The 4 pounds also slid off in 3 days back home. :) So, back in my routine I'm looking for yummy, calorie-wise snacks and... Read more
A new voice in my head

No, I'm not schizophrenic. But I do make a habit of talking to myself.... more acurately composing emails to people in my head. Tonight my husband and I worked up a sweat playing Wii (he kicked my butt), and while in the shower, I found myself... Read more

We're going to visit my in-laws this coming week. I'm excited to see them and watch them spend time with our 2 year old daughter. But I'm also nervous. I will not have complete control of my food. One thing people don't always understand... Read more

I'm not hungry! I have a large glass of icy crystal light... there is NO REASON for me to be in the kitchen constantly. I'm just bored. My daughter is watching tv, and I'm essentially waiting for my husband to get home. I've balanced the c... Read more

Change. It's a dirty word sometimes. It brings with it anxiety and fear. It can also bring hope and light. Change is coming in my life. In fact... I think it's here! I've been a member of a message board for 2 1/2 years. What started ... Read more

WooHoo!!!! My doctor's scale weighed me in at 306 last week and it broke my heart. I didn't have the courage to weigh myself again on my own scale that day for a baseline, so I'm going off that. But today I'm 297!!!! 9 pounds to reflect a gr... Read more
Getting started
Monday, August 09, 2010      1 comments

Getting started always seems to be the hardest part for me. "I'll start tomorrow". But tomorrow doesn't come for months. I have come to the realization that only I can do this for me. Only I can choose what goes into my body. Only I get to ... Read more
