Thursday, July 29, 2010      3 comments

Yep, I'm still here... I'm still plugging away. My good habits almost ended two weeks ago, though. I wasn't feeling well and kept getting abdominal pain, so I stopped exercising. Of course, the next week when I felt better I resorted to... Read more

So this morning I was celebrating my minor victory: I have once again crossed the threshold between obesity and just being overweight! That nagging two pounds almost drove me nuts, I seemed to be moving in the right direction, just in .2 lb inc... Read more
Always have a back-up lunch...

Lesson learned yesterday: Always have a back-up lunch. So I'm blessed with a job where people will buy us lunch just so they can use our lunch hour to tell us about their products. It's a pretty sweet set-up, especially since, as archit... Read more

So I'm still hovering around that 171 lb. mark - no changes to report. I would love to break through that 170 mark just so I can get my hair cut! I desperately need a trim, though now that it's long, I'm thinking about keeping in that way... j... Read more

Seriously, I grew taller! I was at the hospital yesterday to start the clinical trial tests, and they measured me at 5'-3.5"! This was the exact same room where my height was taken about 2 years ago and it came out at 5'-2.75". That means, I'... Read more

So, it's been a week since I've posted and I have a lot to say! I caught something on Friday that knocked me out that evening and had me bed or couch - ridden for the weekend and the beginning of this week. I've been able to be at work..... Read more

I shop with coupons. I started clipping these magic money codes around a year ago to help our budget after my hours were cut at work. I started getting extreme with my coupon use last summer, and by September we had paid off our credit cards..... Read more

So I can finally say that I've lost 10 lbs. After a 2 lb. loss this morning, it looks like I'm finally on pace with my goals. Amazingly, I lost even after a pasta dinner Monday night, and a burger dinner last night! We got free ground b... Read more
