But the cute little Brownies outside walmart always seduce me with their delicious cookies. Relax. I only ate four. Cookies, not boxes. I figured I should update this blog so you guys would know I didn't fall off the wagon after New ... Read more

Last weekend was my mother's birthday and I was faced with cooking a meal for 11 people. I decided to pull out my trusty lasagna recipe, which worked out very well. Until I got on the scale the next day. 243. Ugh! I hadn't seen ... Read more

I went to college orientation today. I was pleased when I wasn't the oldest person in the room. Many others had jobs and/or families to worry about. I feel fortunate to have an empty nest and a husband who supports me so that I can focus on b... Read more

Did you all have fun trick-or-treating? I didn't go...and I only ate 3 snack-sized Almond Joys. To avoid further temptation, I'm sending the leftover candy to work with hubby. Today is November 1, and it's time for another weigh-in. T... Read more

I am still here. I lost 3.6 lbs in September, so I am still making slow progress. I wish it could be more, but hey. No complaints here. I am noticing some big-ness in my clothes. My once-tight jeans no longer cut me in half at the waist... Read more

I've struggled all month. I've tracked my food; I've been at the gym every single day, yet I was not losing weight. The scale consistently said: 273 lbs. for the majority of August. Then I had this wild idea to revisit SparkPeople and get... Read more

It's almost the end of July and I figured I should update this blog. I'm down about 5 lbs for the month! I survived a family dinner, birthday cake, and casino buffets, so losing 5 lbs this month is truly a small miracle. What has ch... Read more

This photo kind of depressed me. It's me and my mom at the aquarium last weekend. We were petting the sting rays (de-barbed ones). I felt like I had made some progr... Read more

It's obvious from the chart, too. Knowing I had gained, I was avoiding weigh-in for the past two weeks. I figured I better check-in today and see what the damage l... Read more
