Bad Blogger!
Friday, September 30, 2011      1 comments

Wow, what a terrible job I have done keeping up with my blogging. I can think of a million excuses, most of which are valid. BUT in all honesty, if I have time for Facebook or Angry Birds, I should be making time for this, since it is certainl... Read more

I am still here
Sunday, January 23, 2011      3 comments

Wow I have become a bad blogger. I have become a creature of routine. Gym, work, home, repeat. Things have been going ok here. Truth be told, I could tighten up on the food intake and I am sure I would have a faster weight loss. I have cons... Read more
Post holiday...still plugging along
Thursday, December 30, 2010      4 comments

Wow the days do fly past. I have been pleased that through the holiday season I managed to keep the weight going in the right direction. The weight loss was a little slower, but it's fine. Overall I will take ANY loss. I made some great dec... Read more
Slow and steady

I tracked my weight today and have hit the 30 pound mark. The weight loss seems to have slowed considerably, though it is still going in the right direction so I am happy. I took today off from the gym...kind of with a grudge. This pit of a h... Read more

Saturday, November 27, 2010      2 comments

I found my turbo jam DVD and decided to pop it in and try it out this morning. Even after several months on the stairstepper, treamill, and elliptical that is still one awesome workout. I had forgotten how much I enjoy it. ... Read more

It happend yesterday morning. Something for which I have been waiting for what seems like eternity. I am under 200 pounds. I know it is just a number on a scale, but it is wonderfully motivating. It certainly puts things in perspective consi... Read more
What part of OUCH don't you understand?
Wednesday, October 20, 2010      2 comments

I think I may be ready to break up with my personal trainer. While the relationship may have wonderful benefits, it is extremely painful! Remember my goal setting? One major important goal was to use the toilet without wanting to cry? Yeah, ... Read more
Exercise After-Glow
Sunday, October 17, 2010      2 comments

I have known for some time that I feel so much better when I am exercising. I have more energy, I am in a better mood, I sleep better and I really get more done. What I didn't realize is that evidently I look better too. I don't just mean a s... Read more
Training the Personal Trainer?
Tuesday, October 12, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday was the first day with the personal trainer. It was mostly informational and goal setting. There we go again ...goal setting. Why am I so opposed to setting goals for myself? It's as if once I put it out there I will feel like a h... Read more

What a couple of weeks. Things at work are busy, but okay. It is good to be back to work, but could I use a few more hours in the day! I have been staying on track with my food and exercise which feels very good. I finally (today) broke thro... Read more
Back from vacation

Today I return to work after my lovely six weeks off from surgery. We spent last week at Seneca Lake with some wonderful friends. It was a great way to end the time off, but as always it is great to be back home. I weighed in today and los... Read more
Pant shopping
Friday, September 10, 2010      1 comments

I spent some time looking for a pair of pants in several different stores. I was zipping up sizes that I haven't even had in my hands for a long time. That felt great! I fit into a size 14 at Lane Bryant. Now, I give the qualifier of the sto... Read more
