It seems that I've reached the stage in my weight loss where I'm hitting plateaus. It's incredibly frustrating. My goal was to reach 202 by 7/26. Instead I stalled out at 204 for over a month. To be so close to my goal (not to mention breaking i... Read more
Holy Cow!

Last week I was feeling a little discouraged. My weight loss had been slowing down over the past month and I only lost 0.4lbs last week. I was trying not to let it get me down because as long as I'm still losing something, even if it's just a li... Read more

I weighed in today at 220, bring my total weight loss to 49lbs. While I'm happy to see so much weight gone, I find myself getting a little discouraged. The first few months of my weight loss journey, the weight just melted off. Lately, it has sl... Read more

I weighed in at 222.6 this morning, down 3.2lbs from last week. I was pleasantly surprised to see that number because I had slipped up a little last week, but I fought back from it and it shows. I actually weigh less now than I did going into my... Read more
Second mini-goal met!!
Monday, May 13, 2019      4 comments

I had originally set my second mini-goal as being at 226 by April 19th. But it didn't exactly work out like I had planned. My depression and anxiety kicked up, leading me to turn to comfort food. Comfort food, while tasty, doesn't give my body t... Read more

When I started back on my journey to better health, I wasn't really sure what I weighed. I'd been avoiding the scale for so long I'd actually lost the darned thing. It was the end of January before I found it. I was at 250 at that point. Th... Read more
First mini-goal met!!!
Thursday, March 07, 2019      7 comments

I've been avoiding the scale for a couple weeks. I haven't felt well so I haven't really had the energy to exercise. I also tend to go with whatever foods I felt like my body will tolerate when I'm sick. And let's not forget PMS cravings rearing... Read more

I first joined Spark in 2006 after the birth of my daughter. I was at my highest weight ever and I wanted to be around to see my little girl grow up. I worked my butt off, but fell off the wagon just before reaching onederland. My weight has gon... Read more

Another 3 lbs gone this week, which brings me under the 250 mark. That makes a total of 7.4 lbs lost in the last 4 weeks, slightly under what I planned, but I'm still happy. I'd like to say that my 3 lb loss this week was due to getting my... Read more
Experimenting with Smoothies
Thursday, April 25, 2013      5 comments

While I love fresh fruit, I'm not big on veggies, which makes it a challenge when it comes to making sure I get enough in my daily diet. I can only eat salads for so long before I start getting bored with them. To help ensure I am getting them i... Read more
A Little Discouraged
Wednesday, April 24, 2013      2 comments

I weighed in today to find I'd lost only 0.6 lbs. After losing 2.2 lbs my first week back on the wagon and another 1.6 lbs last week, it's a bit discouraging to see that I dropped less than a pound this week. I know I should consider it progress... Read more
Another 1.4 lbs Gone!
Wednesday, April 17, 2013      2 comments

I weighed in today at 1.4 less than last Wednesday. I was really hoping to see 2 lbs gone, but considering I missed several days of walking due to rain and my leg and had a bad day carb-wise, I'm still happy. It brings me to 3.6 lbs down in 2 we... Read more
Carbs are Not my Friend

I woke up with a migraine yesterday. I've suffered from migraines since childhood, at my worst getting up to 1-2 a week. Now thanks to a daily preventative medicine, I only get one every month or so. It still sucks though. I envy the people that... Read more
Pain while Walking and Comments from the Hubby
Saturday, April 13, 2013      1 comments

How is it that I can do two miles fairly easily on some days, but struggle with one mile on others? I set out walking yesterday with the intention of getting at least 2 miles in. On this walking track, it takes 2.5 laps to make a mile. I was bar... Read more
