I weighed in this morning. Down 96 pounds since January 1, 2019. I was hoping to hit 100 by my birthday but I don’t think I will make it. I was feeling bummed and posted on Facebook about it. I was overwhelmed by the love and support from my fri... Read more

Woke up at 5 am to go to the gym. Got there and realized they don’t open so early on the weekend. Instead of going home I drove to the local college to use the track. I listened to one of the free Fitbit coach workouts and got in a decent walkin... Read more

Just finished a jog/walk on the treadmill at my in-laws house. We are now living here now and getting our house ready to get put on the market. Stressful is a mild word for it. There are 7 of us in one house. My 3 girls are sharing a room big en... Read more

I have tennis elbow and had my first PT session today. It seemed mostly diagnostic. I left with my arm taped and some exercises to do each day. I just did them for the first time and I think I like the idea of physical therapy. Instead of drugs ... Read more

Today my husband and two younger daughters climbed Wachusett Mountain. My girls are 5 and 8 that came. I am so proud of them! 3.25 miles and my Fitbit recorded the climb as 50 floors. It took us 2 hours including the picnic at the top. I paid f... Read more
Goal 1 met

My first goal I set for myself was to hit 250 by June. I’m below that today and way ahead of schedule. 43 pounds down since January 1st. Now I need another goal. I think it is easier to break it down into smaller goals than just the big 100 poun... Read more

Weighed in this morning and I'm down a lot! 16 pounds for a total of 28 this month. I don't know how it is possible to happen so fast. I guess I was eating myself into this and now that I'm tracking it is falling off. Also, I started my period.... Read more
