My heart is heavy. On Sunday, I sat at my stepdad's side clutching his hand as he breathed his last breaths and watched him slip away. He is at peace and we are in turmoil. This pain will ease and the memories will become pleasant, but right now... Read more

Back To It
Monday, August 18, 2014      3 comments

It was a busy weekend filled with lots of unhealthy foods and not enough exercise. After 3 weeks of losing, I'm pretty sure I'll be up at least a little this week, but I'm really okay with it. Life happens. Two days doesn't negate the two ... Read more
Feeling a Little Better Today
Tuesday, April 22, 2014      3 comments

Yesterday I was really down and depressed. It was bad...worst I've felt in a long time. Some of it had to do with consuming too much sugar on Easter, but that doesn't account for all of the feeling. I do feel a little better today and I'll take ... Read more
Feeling down & needed to vent
Monday, April 21, 2014      4 comments

Today is the worst I've felt in a long time. Not sure if it's all the sugar I consumed yesterday, or if it's just depression rearing its ugly head again. All I want to do is lay in bed and cry. I am really struggling emotionally lately. I've bee... Read more
Finished My First DietBet (with before/after pic)
Wednesday, December 04, 2013      19 comments

I started my first DietBet back on 11/04/13 at 254.8. I knew it would be challenging at best. 4% of my start weight was 10.4 pounds - which meant that I'd have to lose 2.6 lbs per week on average. I told myself that I was going to do my best and... Read more
Irritated Today
Wednesday, November 13, 2013      7 comments

Feeling pissy today. Ya know, just angry. At everything. Ugh. First, I stepped on the scale this morning and I'm up 0.5 lb from three days ago, even though I've exercised and stayed in the lower end of my calorie range. Next, my son's schoo... Read more
Going Down
Friday, November 08, 2013      7 comments

My DietBet started on Wednesday but I officially weighed in on Monday. Since the site suggests weighing in every 4 days to track your progress, I weighed in today (unofficially). I'm down 1.6 lbs!! That's 16% of my goal, so I'm right on track. I... Read more

Diet Bet - It's ON!
Thursday, October 24, 2013      8 comments

In my last blog I talked about not wanting to join the Diet Bet that my sister-in-law and her husband are doing because I don't really have an extra $25 right now. But I talked to my husband about it and he is so supportive. He said he knows I'v... Read more
Thinking Smaller
Tuesday, October 22, 2013      4 comments

I just updated my goal ticker to show a monthly goal of 4% weight loss...or 10.6 lbs in my case. I think seeing my ultimate goal and how much farther it is until I reach it was detrimental. It's just too big. So, I'm changing it to lose 10 pound... Read more
Trying Again (again)
Monday, October 14, 2013      7 comments

So my depression hit me hard for the past 3 months...my weight is back up where it was when I started and I'm feeling terrible about myself again. I know I'm supposed to love myself where I'm at, yada, yada, yada. But the truth is I just don't f... Read more

Day 50 & 51
Wednesday, July 03, 2013      8 comments

Day 50 was another 10 half-hearted minutes. Today, day 51, I did a 20 minute 1 mile walk at home workout. I'm struggling with my commitment lately. I just keep feeling like "what's the point"? Nothing is changing and I'm more upset th... Read more
