I've been sucking at the blogging lately, sorry. Things are coming along. The Biggest Loser challenge at work starts next week. I weighed in yesterday after school at 165, which is my official starting weight, I guess. I figure that's ok... Read more

So after doing so well with my luncheon yesterday, today I have made HORRIBLE choices. But I kind of don't care. I have 112 calories to my max, and I haven't eaten dinner. Maybe I will, maybe I won't. I'm not hungry right now, so not a big d... Read more

As of today, I am officially no longer obese. Granted, it's by .1 on the BMI scale, but it's just overweight, nonetheless. I can't remember the last time I was at this weight. I know I got into my 160s in college, but I think my lowest... Read more

So, last night I was feeling crafty, and decided to make myself an insulated water bottle carrier for the water bottle I carry around with me everywhere I go. It had to have a strap long enough to go around my body, but it had to be detachable ... Read more
