Not a banner week.... I finally crashed into my wall... I just felt so stressed out and overwhelmed by current events that I just curled up in a ball for two days. Managed to eat halfway decent. Failed to exercise at all. But I just coul... Read more

So, I missed my #2 goal - hoped to be at 180.2 by the end of August... BUT - I did cross over the 40lbs lost mark, which is very exciting. And reflecting on this year, I must say I am very proud of myself. While I may go over on calorie... Read more

So I made goal #1! Lost my first 10% of weight. The funny thing is, I weigh 15 pounds more now than I did 2 years ago. But my clothes (yes, same ones) fit way better now than they did then! Back then, all I was doing was walking. Now, I am... Read more

I have been wallowing a bit after the loss of my ex. It has hit me much harder than I had ever thought possible. I started seeing a therapist, which opened up new levels of the emotions I was feeling about that - which landed me in the bottom ... Read more

So, not much progress... none in fact.... Although there is no gain, which is something short of amazing. And I am nudging down a little. But my exercise plan is so hit and miss, and my eating gets tracked most days, but some days I just ... Read more
