I am so sorry that I've been gone so long. Life threw me for a CRAZY AWFUL loop. My marriage nearly ended. My family is now a statistic of unemployment in America... Read more

Its a constant journey to figure out who I am and what I want for my life. I want to be healthier, feel better about myself, live long, and yes, be able to buy "skinny girl clothes" (or at least in the "normal women's dept"). I want that ... Read more

Not forgetting about this blog... I had just been avoiding it. I was avoiding it because its easier to do that than face it. I gained back everything I lost. Emotional eating + stress.... its not an excuse, but its the truth. T... Read more

Well, as luck would have it, yesterday was "one of those days" and it didn't go well for me diet wise. I fell off the wagon, hard. BUT - today is a better day. I am determined that it will be. I feel like I finally got a bit of closure... Read more

I want this blog to be an honest, full accounting of my journey. For that to happen, I need to talk about more than food, exercise, and pounds. Its time to share some things going on behind the scenes. This has been a really hard year. ... Read more
First Goal Met!!
Tuesday, August 24, 2010      5 comments

I lost 5 lbs!! It feels so good to have reached a mark like that, that is measurable by some solid number. I still don't feel like it is a lot (compared to the 120 or so I have left to lose), but I try to remind myself that my body isn't count... Read more
In the beginning...
Sunday, August 22, 2010      4 comments

I figured it was time to post a "Before" blog so that I have something to look back on and compare to. I am writing everything in this post in past tense, because I have lost 4 lbs since "the beginning" a week ago, and I want to always look at ... Read more

WOOT!! I'm down another pound, for a total of 4 lbs lost this week! That makes me so happy I can hardly stand it!! I know 4 pounds isn't that much, but it is progress, and that means more to me than I can put into words. I'm still n... Read more
Down Another Pound!

I know I probably shouldn't be weighing every day, because of how our bodies can fluctuate with hormones and water retention and such.... but I did anyway. ;) It feels SO amazing to see progress on the scale. I'm only 2 lbs away from a 5 l... Read more

I am still learning a lot about myself and how I respond to food. The latest thing I have to keep telling myself is that feeling hungry is different from going hungry. Food issues anyone? I also took this test over at Self.com to find you... Read more

2 days... down 2.5 lbs!! I'm still making mistakes and still having cravings, but I'm trying, and that's what counts. The changes I'm making are showing up on the scale too, which is encouraging. I just need to keep with it! It has... Read more

It feels weird that after all of the posting, researching, planning, and preparing over the last few months, that TODAY is day one. Its been a long time coming. Some things I'm learning about myself... * The idea of going without fo... Read more
Planning!

We have a pantry and fridge full of wonderful healthy groceries (and a bank account that shows it - yowch!)! I have a weight watchers points calculator and a nutrition calculator saved in my favorites list. I made a list of foods to eat tomorr... Read more
Back in the Saddle Again
Friday, August 13, 2010      3 comments

The last few months have been horrible for me, and diet and exercise just took a back seat. I wish I had kept with it, but I don't blame myself for not. It was one of the hardest summers I have ever had. I can't say that it is better ye... Read more
