Today I was munchy. I decided that, although I would typically NOT log the foods I just munched on here and there, now I really need to. If I want to know where my numbers will fall for maintaining, I need to put it all in there...so I did. ... Read more

The other 3 kids made my blog yesterday, so here's my "baby". Had a super bad day at school today. Hoping to get the major issues resolved tomorrow. Between issues at school and the kids being sick, I'm feeling absolutely drained. Luckil... Read more

So we finally got the kiddos out to play in the snow. As you can see, they had fun : ) The youngest had already come in by that time. I had a snacky day, which is funny because yesterday, I had to tell myself to eat as I just wasn't hun... Read more

So today I started my maintaining journey - day one of a lifetime of good healthy eating. In sticking to my new plan to raise my carbs, I realized how much I had fallen back into some not so good habits. I have started to pick at food here and... Read more

So, tomorrow I begin to systematically raise my carbs to find my maintaining numbers. My plan is to add 5 "good"carbs every two weeks. I'm excited about it-and not sure why : ) I guess it's just realizing that I've achieved goal and ready to ... Read more

My hubby has been very supportive of my new lifestyle. He's not a slender guy, but he's not really "heavy", either. He carries most of his weight right above the belt. He admits he could stand to lose a little, but really hasn't been too conc... Read more

I announced to my children that I was going to make asparagus and asked who all wanted some. I got a bunch of yucks and ewwww's. My 2yo used to love the stuff, but I haven't bought it much lately - and she said no. So I made my planned amount... Read more

I like to talk. I have used this blogging space as an outlet, for which I think my hubby is eternally grateful, as I have another place to yack endlessly to. I often use this blog to air my successes, my fears, my idiosyncrasies, my self-consc... Read more

OK...here's a bad visual. Years and years of being overweight. You sit in pants that become increasingly tighter. The belly hangs over. Is it possible to get a permanent overhang from all those years of belly hang??? I've got a "protrusion"... Read more

I got a gift certificate for a massage for Christmas. I can't wait to redeem it. I think I'll call tomorrow to make an appointment. I read in literature that came with the gift certificate, that "Massage is a weight-loss technique. Physical ... Read more

with my hubby can be SO difficult!! I wanted some feedback from him on my next step. I seem to be in a loss mode at the moment - woohoo!! But that makes me think maybe a few extra pounds beyond goal wouldn't hurt. But then again, what differ... Read more

I thought of this movie today. Today was probably the final showing of our house, as our contract is up Tuesday with the realtor, and we've decided not to continue on. I'm kind of indifferent at this point about the whole thing. I would have ... Read more

So we made the decision to take our house off the market. It's been on since Thanksgiving of '06...it's been long enough. I'm so tired of keeping it in "show" condition. Well...our contract with the relator is up on Tuesday...and we got a cal... Read more
