I slipped up Saturday. My boyfriend's mom had a cookout. There were absolutely NO healthy options there. I got there and everything I learned flew out the window. Thursday I weighed 135. Today I weigh 138. That may not seem like a... Read more

Perhaps you are like me. I wish weight loss were relative. I started out eating everything I wanted whenever I wanted and I weighed about 145. Oh, and never ONCE did I exercise. (Okay, maybe I did ONCE, but I wasn't very good at it.) ... Read more

Ortho-Tri Cylin made me crazy. Seriously. Insane mood swings and anger. The "lo" version made me gain weight. The ring fell out. A lot. Talk about gross. Latex gives me chronic yeast infections. Now I'm on Yaz. I've been on i... Read more

So, for the last two weeks I've been busting my butt. This week I was "girling it" and still managed to stiffle my cravings and exercise everyday. I set records for myself. I weighed in this morning and the scale says I'm back to 140. How i... Read more

I run away from responsibility. I always have. I get overwhelmed and I bury my head in pillows and blankets and sleep fitfully until the deadlines pass and "Voila!"-- I can come out because everything is screwed up and I no longer have to w... Read more

It's not a "race" but it's exciting because it's the first time I'll have done a fun-run since I was in grade school. Proceeds go toward the Invisible Children fund to provide education for kids in Uganda. Update 4/26: The race was not offi... Read more

Monday I did my weigh in and saw a 2.2 pound loss. I'm so excited. It feels like I may have overcome the plateau. So I'm going to try to up my exercise. I need to be at 132 by May 6 so I can have a chance at the incentive prize in our schoo... Read more

Weekends for me are like Jimi Hendrix songs-- they're castles in the sand falling into the sea. Each one starts out with the best of intention, but the idle time gets to me. Even if I work out, I end up "reward"ing myself by eating whatever ever... Read more

So... I uploaded this picture to my gallery today. I look at it and I'm sad because I'm scared that it may never really be the "before" picture. I've been working out and eating better but it doesn't seem like my scale at home moves. I j... Read more

My measurements are varying. Is that strange? Granted, I'm comparing them to my measurements before I went on my eating binge. I guess there's my answer... I thought it was cool to not be AS crazy meticulous about my calorie intake because I los... Read more

It's actually easier than I thought. I've been planning our dinners. Monday we had chicken parmigiana. Last night I made turkey chili with corn bread. Today we're doing fish tacos with all sorts of yummy sides. What's cool about it is that ... Read more

Today I will get back on track. I weighed in yesterday-- 142. I've been exercising but I pretty much stopped counting calories. Eating at restaurants is what got me off track, so I'm not going to eat out anymore. If my friends go ... Read more

Tomorrow is my 25th birthday. Though I haven't met my goal of reaching 135, I have achieved a few things that I lied to myself about not wanting: I can jog, I can control what I eat (I don't always do it, but now I know that I CAN) and I ca... Read more
