Let's start with the good stuff: I am able to maintain a pretty consistent low carb/high fat (primarily keto) diet. This helps me overall eliminate cravings and stay feeling well. I have my cheat moments, but when I do it is always a great remin... Read more

A huge part of the stress I've been under is going to be eased. We are moving finally into a 2 bedroom apartment in a nice complex. My step son will have his own room and own space! I am so looking forward to being settled in the new place ... Read more
Not really about weightloss. Overwhelmed with Life.

Did I ever mention that my husband and I have custody of his 10 yr old son? We didn't for the bulk of our relationship. Previously we had all 3 of his kids intermittently--like for the weekends. Then back in June, our son's mother decided that s... Read more

We did it! Married 8/18/18. Everything was perfect! The wedding, the reception, the honeymoon... We definitely didn't want to leave the honeymoon bubble and come back to reality, but the truth is, even back in reality it's still a total h... Read more
The Keto Life
Wednesday, June 20, 2018      1 comments

My S.O. and I finally found a diet plan that we can agree on and it's been great. I've been on keto for just under 3 weeks and I'm down 10 lbs. I'd have more progress but I bloated up after father's day because we did indulge in some ice cream w... Read more

I'm getting married in August. This is wedding number 3. (see previous blogs for more info on past relationships...). Regardless of the ups and downs I was at about the same weight for both weddings previous. I'm currently at that weight now. I ... Read more
Trying to duplicate results...without the heartbreak.

If you read my last post, then you know that I haven't had the best luck with picking life partners in the past. In fact, I would say that's the understatement of my life... Unfortunately, my weight has gone up and down in response to my relat... Read more

A little backstory: I first joined in 2012 while married to my first husband and living in a new town. I wanted to get healthy and I needed a network of support because I had moved 1,000 miles away from the one I had. Neither the move, nor the... Read more
Haven't Been Tracking!
Monday, May 12, 2014      0 comments

It's been a stressful few weeks to say the least. My job satisfaction takes a further dive every single day that I walk into my office. The job application and interview process is stressful and tedious at best... As a result I have let ... Read more
Giving myself a break
Monday, April 07, 2014      4 comments

Over the last several days I have really gone "off plan." with my eating. I'm not calling it "falling off the wagon" or anything that would imply a failure. I'm calling myself a break. It all started Thursday evening when I need... Read more
April Goals
Tuesday, April 01, 2014      3 comments

Last month writing out some solid goals really helped me, so I'm going to do it again and see if we can keep the success rolling. 1. I want to make it a repeat and lose another 6lbs! (I'd settle for 4...but that's not the point). 2. Si... Read more

I was feeling particularly stressed at work today. I decided to get up from my desk and take a stroll around the office/fill up my water bottle. That of course took me into the kitchen where I stood staring down a box of leftover cupcakes from t... Read more

Monday, March 24, 2014      2 comments

I am very proud of myself for how well I've stuck to my rules these last 11 days. It honestly has been easier than I thought it would be. I credit this to making creative snacks and more than anything the support from my husband. I'd lie if I sa... Read more

Good morning Sparkers! I am on day 6 of 14 and feeling awesome. I'm really looking forward to my weigh in this weekend. (First time I've said that in a while...). Why do I want to weigh in you might ask? Well...I'm making progress and ... Read more
