Lost the first 5 lbs
Sunday, June 13, 2010      6 comments

Jumped on the scale and I'm already down five pounds. That's very encouraging. Soda has always been my biggest weight gainer so stopping cold turkey is what caused that initial drop. I already feel the different in my jeans which were getting ju... Read more
Dental Work & Eating Right
Wednesday, June 09, 2010      1 comments

I spent all day today dealing with trying to get dental work scheduled. Two of my wisdom teeth came in with cavities and they've gotten to the point that I'm in pain. I now have dental insurance after four years without it and the money to do it... Read more
Desperately Seeking Encouragement
Sunday, June 06, 2010      5 comments

Okay it's June. Bikini season is here. And my goal of being one piece ready was not reached. In fact I've gone backwards (which somehow in my heart I figured I would). I have gained all but about 2-3 pounds of my prior weight back. I would say i... Read more
Moved to Texas
Thursday, February 18, 2010      4 comments

Well, it's the middle of February and while I haven't been blogging much, it's for good reason. Libby and I finally moved to Texas and I've spent the last couple of weeks handling everything from packing (and unpacking - yuck) to finding a dayca... Read more

Okay so I haven't blogged since Thanksgiving and I'm sorry about that but once again, Libby and I are undergoing some huge life changes. Not long after Thanksgiving, Libby was denied for her medical insurance and food stamps renewal because of p... Read more
Survived Thanksgiving Holiday

I jumped on the scale today and I'm happy to say I'm still at 168.8. I cooked a modest meal for Libby and I and then didn't eat a whole lot until I was full. I've been on a bit of a stay-cation as well as I try to recover from the most severe ca... Read more
Awesme Snack Idea
Saturday, November 14, 2009      3 comments

Yesterday I was craving chips and dip but didn't want anything too fattening. Sometimes you just want that salty crunch, you know? So I was at the store and found the new baked Tostitos scoops which are only 3 grams of fat per serving and 120 ca... Read more
Motivation Made Easy

I recently discovered the awesome power of visualization. Currently I'm attending college in pursuit of my degree. It's so tough - I'm constantly bombarded by shifting priorities. I feel badly about how much time my daughter spends in daycare - ... Read more
The Most Incredible Documentary Ever
Saturday, November 07, 2009      2 comments

I'm repulsed. Disgusted. And a bit scared. I watched Super Size Me. And I am astonished. I mean, some of it I knew but not to the extent that the documentary goes into. Now please note, if you haven't seen the movie and want to you should STOP h... Read more
New Stuff I Love
Wednesday, November 04, 2009      1 comments

I seem to have developed a new love of grocery shopping. It's a love/hate thing really. I love looking for new and tasty but healthier choices. I hate all the rest of it, lol. And of course, I'm shopping more often now because of all the fresh f... Read more

I did not want to work out this morning. Period. I had every excuse in the book. Laundry to do. Cooking to do. Two papers to work on that are due next week. I was tired. I would do it later in the afternoon. I needed to take a shower first. ... Read more

I worked out today for the first time since this spring! I feel super. Energized. Like I could conquer the world! Whoo! Endorphins are awesome! I met with the personal trainer for an hour and a half and we worked out a very simple program -... Read more
Healthy Cooking

I managed to get through another weekend without eating too horribly. I managed to avoid the impulse to order pizza or go out to eat as well as avoided the whole enormous bowl of candy taking up temporary residence at my house. Friday was steak ... Read more
Finally Some Tasty Alternatives
Saturday, October 31, 2009      2 comments

I love food. That's obvious from the pounds I've gained since having my daughter. But more than it being food, it's the taste that causes me to overeat. And as a result, diet and lifestyle changes are hard for me because there are some things I ... Read more
One Reality Check Please
Friday, October 23, 2009      3 comments

I recently got a pedometer after talking about it endlessly for two weeks. I also finally ordered my new MP3 player and it should be here next week. Hopefully that will give me extra incentive to go work out. Of course, after the pedometer incid... Read more
