A lot has happened since I started my new journey, but I'm not letting that deter me. I am sticking with the plan and making changes. I am starting to notice things are fitting a little looser, which is encouraging. I even wore a dress today,... Read more

I am feeling good about my start to losing weight. Of course it always comes off fast at first, but it makes me excited and keeps me focused. I work in a school and there are always people trying to get me to eat the wrong foods. I have been ... Read more

OK I have been here before. I lost 123 pounds and then I gained that back plus an extra 16. I can't continue to make excuses why it took me so long to look at myself and say hey I deserve a better body. I have a problem taking care of everyon... Read more

We went to see my daughter in Bloomington, IN this weekend and had a really good time. When we got back we found out Monday our buyers backed out. We had 12 showings of the house on Monday and it was sold for 5000 more than the previous contra... Read more
House sold

Yesterday was absolutely amazing. We put the house on the market and 25 minutes later we had a full price offer with no contingencies. So we signed the contract last night. We don't have to do any showings and we can start moving forward to o... Read more

Stupid allergies
Monday, March 20, 2017      4 comments

I have many allergies and they are flaring up badly right now. I have no voice and just feel drained. I still made myself dance this weekend, but haven't exercised much outside of that activity. I have really stayed on track with my calorie i... Read more

So glad to see the sun
Wednesday, March 08, 2017      3 comments

It is such a pretty day outside (except the wind). It is so much easier to feel motivated when the sun is shining and you can envision yourself putting on a bathing suit. I can't say I am looking forward to that, but I am looking forward to se... Read more
Finally exercised
Monday, March 06, 2017      0 comments

I did approximately 3 hours of dancing this weekend and a bike ride with my husband. I have been hesitant to do much because my body took a beating over the last year. I was sick so much and had unexplained aches and pains all the time. I can... Read more

I had my 14 day spark streak today. I am really trying to make new habits. It's hard sometimes watching others eating, but most of the time I just remember what I am working towards. I wish I didn't have so far to go, but great distances can ... Read more
