Haven't quit, just been slacking

The title really says it all. I took several weeks off of tracking and just maintained for a while. Then I got hit with a lazy bug and a salt-tooth and stopped even trying to maintain, which of course bit me in the butt, but only to the tun... Read more
Why stomach flu makes me laugh
Saturday, March 01, 2014      0 comments

Thursday and Friday this week I was dealing with a nasty stomach bug and a decided lack of desire to eat. On the upside, I lost three pounds. What made me laugh is how it affected my other numbers: a supposed 6% (or about 20#) body fat gain... Read more

The past couple of weeks I've been battling an increasingly worse sinus infection. Over the weekend I finally went to the doctor (because, you know, it was "just a cold" and going to the doctor doesn't do any good when it's "just a cold") and sh... Read more

The enthusiasm was quickly tempered by this:
nted=all&_r=1& Yeesh. Thankfully I'm an under-eater by nature (not that my body looks like it), so... Read more

Usually in August or September, I make a, "Back into things!" post, lazy, like food, etc. This year's post is a few months late (or is it a few months early?), but I started paying attention to myself again mid-December.... Read more

9/7/2012: I have started taking baby steps in my re-renewed efforts to get rid of this weight. I hadn't weighed myself in months, so was pleased when I got on the scale and was six pounds lighter than I was expecting. But 287 is still at le... Read more
Third time's a charm?

This is evidently my annual, "Back to it!" post. So, with all that goes into being a parent and nursing a baby and such all, I fell into the "no time" trap. Now that my daughter is older and nursing less, I've finally gotten time again... Read more

Back on the wagon...again. 9.13.2011: So I'm back where I was before I started SparkPeople about a year.5 ago. I don't feel too bad about this since I got pregnant about five months after I joined, and right around the time I hit the 15... Read more
First real walk of the re-boot

Last night, hubby had a two hour test after I got off of work. Rather than drive home and have to unload the baby, feed her, and reload her, I opted to feed her then go for a walk. I calculated my route and I did about 1.5 miles by the time... Read more

Posterity: Starting off on spark at 288#. Down five pounds from two weeks ago - 293 is the highest I've ever been, 285 being the previous high. I dropped to 228 five years ago, then the **** hit the fan and I gained 27 pounds. Got mar... Read more
Why Being Fat and Pregnant Sucks
Friday, March 04, 2011      4 comments

So my obstetrician originally told me for this pregnancy, try to gain 0-10 pounds. I've shot past that by at least five. However, that's not the problem. Frankly, I found that to be an unrealistic goal. For one, there's a baby growing in th... Read more
(Almost) six months down, (just about) three to go!
Monday, February 14, 2011      2 comments

Just a quick check-in: Weight gain for the pregnancy is going well. If it weren't for the 10 pounds I gained between Thanksgiving and New Year's (annual tradition, don't you know), I'd be spot-on. I've been steady with gaining none to littl... Read more

I just wanted to drop a note that I have not given up on my goals... entirely. However, ten days after my last post, as I was embarking upon my next mini-goal of ten pounds, I discovered that for the next several months, I actually need to ... Read more

Current weight as of yesterday: 279.2# Body fat as of yesterday: 55.7% Next weight goal: 267-269# I'd like to have been farther along by this time, but when you stop exercising for a month, well... yeah, not going to get very far. ... Read more
