Sunday, May 20, 2012      4 comments

So...this is a blog entry, which is really like a diary entry. So we have to be honest, right? It's time that I'm honest with myself. I haven't been doing well so far in this challenge. My goal at the beginning was to lose 30 pounds, and he... Read more
Kayaking Adventure!!
Sunday, May 20, 2012      3 comments

I did something this week that I've never done before--Kayaking! I'm not gonna lie, I was a little bit nervous. I've been white water rafting but it was years ago when I was in a lot better shape. And kayaking is a lot different because you... Read more
I have a little problem...
Tuesday, May 08, 2012      6 comments

Okay, it's kind of a big problem... I always get hungry late at night! Actually, I don't really get HUNGRY as much as I just get the munchies and cravings. I always want to eat at night! I can go most of the day without eating (although I d... Read more

Update....No more HCG.
Sunday, April 15, 2012      5 comments

Several weeks ago, I posted about starting about with my weight loss and doing the HCG diet. The ONLY reason I wanted to do it is because I have such a huge amount of weight to lose and I wanted to get a jump start on it. I was worried that it w... Read more
This happens every time...
Sunday, April 01, 2012      7 comments

Every time I try to lose weight, I go really strong for a few weeks and then I start to slack off. I told myself that I wasn't going to do it this time but I did. I was really good for a few weeks, lost about 30 pounds, and started to cheat a li... Read more

Okay, I'm starting this blog entry out with a big UGH! I'm annoyed right now, but I'm sharing because it is probably something that has happened to all of us. I'm dating a guy right now and today he made the comment, "Lauren, you're really... Read more

Starting over!
Saturday, January 28, 2012      5 comments

It's been a while since I've written a new blog post, or even been on this website. I'm sad to say that I have NOT stuck with a "diet" at all (although I hate to even call them diets). I'm one of those that kept saying, "I'll start tomorrow." An... Read more

Not too happy with myself right now.
Wednesday, February 09, 2011      3 comments

I weighed in for the second time at Weight Watchers yesterday. I was shooting for at least 3.4 pounds, which would bring me to 10 pounds. To my disappointment, I didn't lose anything...instead, I gained a little bit. It was barely anything, just... Read more

Monday, January 31, 2011      3 comments

Week one. 321 pounds, AHH! I knew that I was getting up there but I had no idea it was so high. When I stepped on the scale and saw my true weight, I had to hold back tears. I’m so upset with myself for getting this big. Less than 3 years ago, f... Read more
