OK...so I got this fabulous job...that ran it's course and led to another fabulous job...still in TV production...but because I started working 40+ hrs a week blogging and corresponding with my SP friends have fallen by the way side. Now I'... Read more

I haven't given up...but boy do I lack the motivation to kick it into high gear. My weight has continued to baffle and frustrate me by staying flat, and even gaining a bit over the holidays. Despite the fact that I have kept up the exercise...gu... Read more
Stuck again...and so frustrated!

I had to take a minute to come and read blogs today...because I'm trying NOT to be down in the dumps about the non-progress as of late! I've been stuck at the same # for the last 3 weeks. Right after I blogged about the scale moving again...I sh... Read more
Changes are happening!

Got another lb loss last week! Yeah! That makes several in a row...without the dreaded plateau syndrome...although I won't be too smug, because knowing my body and how things generally work, it's only a matter of time. It is very exciting to con... Read more
Another milestone for me!

I finally hit the 155 mark with a 1.5 loss this week, and .5 last week. It took me all summer to lose 4 lbs...never thought I'd be happy with one pound per month...but I'm looking on the bright side. I'm happy that the scale has moved at all! ... Read more
5 inches gone!!!

Wahoo! I'm not happy to still be in the 150's, but I can't cry because of the scale today...I measured again (finally) and my hips are 5" smaller!!! That would explain the shorts sliding down all day. I knew my body was changing, but I wasn't se... Read more
Left foot, right foot...repeat!

I'm still plugging away! I thought these pounds couldn't come off any SLOWER, and I was wrong! Some days I feel like I'm not making any progress at all! But I've decided maintaining through all the crazy routines, schedules and family picnics is... Read more
It's official...I can NOT live without SP!

What on earth did I ever do without internet? I can't remember that far back, I guess, but I have been SERIOUSLY missing SP this past week. My internet has been "out", and I've missed my mail, facebook, blogging, and all the rest...but mostly I'... Read more
I was crazy to think I'd have MORE time when school ended!

My calendar seems every bit as busy now as it was 3 weeks ago! And I forgot how difficult the first week or 2 are with transitioning the kids into the home routine vs. running out the door every morning for school! I think I'm starting to g... Read more

I have been wearing shorts all week...a pair I could not EVEN squeeze into last summer...the only pair that aren't TOO big, and now they're starting to be very loose. This is so exciting, and further proof that my body is changing and improving ... Read more
Dear scale,

We had a deal this week, and you broke it! I promised to stay away from you, and not to obsess about you, then in return, you'd give me a "good" number this morning! I know I've had sick kids, logged way too few ZZZ's, probably didn't eat enough... Read more

Challenging, hard, too much to do in too little time....these are some of the ways I'd describe where I've "been" the last few weeks. My kids have one more week of school, but it doesn't feel like we're winding down, because suddenly I have more... Read more
Breaking the plateau!

Can it be? Did I really see a loss of 2 this week? After staying virtually the same for over a month?! What a great feeling! Everything everyone told me about staying the course and it'll pay off...well it actually did pay off. Maybe next time (... Read more
I actually RAN the whole thing!

Me! A whole 5K! I still can't believe it, and I'm oh so proud of myself! Better yet, it didn't kill me! I only agreed to this, my first 5K, a few weeks ago. About a month ago, I wasn't sure I could run a whole mile! My buddy and I decided to do ... Read more
Today I conquered a mountain!
Friday, May 01, 2009      3 comments

In reality, it's just a very big hill, but I ran UP it all the way without stopping! Before I started running, I could hardly walk up that hill without huffing and puffing the whole way. Then I could walk it at a good pace, without slowing down.... Read more
