Result: I have regained about 70 pounds from my lowest. This is WITHOUT candy or desserts, visible carbs, or soda. I'm still down about 150 pounds and with those items above I'm sure I'd weigh a lot more. I was probably too low at my ... Read more

Off the Wagon
Sunday, August 20, 2017      4 comments

So, I'm eating and eating and eating. I'm genuinely feeling hungry (look I know it's head hunger) but I'm antsy and shaky if I can't get food. I'm not even exaggerating--I'm eating probably ten meals a day. I've regained 24 pounds since my... Read more
By all accounts
Wednesday, March 15, 2017      6 comments

By all accounts I am dong great. I've been maintaining since Thanksgiving. I bounce around a five pound range but I guess my body does that? Honestly, I'd still like to get to a lower number permanently and so yesterday when the scale undeservea... Read more

I've hit a point where apparently I look very good in terms of people noticing. And truthfully, I notice too. I have calf muscles! My thighs are shapelier. My butt hurts when sitting because there is less padding. I am trying new sleep positions... Read more
Sad truth

Flat tire
Thursday, June 09, 2016      4 comments
