This is the kitten I found dead on my bed yesterday. I don't know what happened, but she's gone, and that makes me incredibly sad. She was a good kitten with tons of personality and was just amazing. She snuggled up under the blankets and would ... Read more

I just want everyone to know that, (I believe because of my efforts yesterday), that I lost 1.2 pounds in a single day. A. Single. Day. I contribute it to avoiding crap and eating within my calories yesterday with only water and herbal t... Read more

I went to a farmer's market. Though i did get some homemade junk (I'm sitting here with some chocolate almond brittle right now), I also discovered that even during the winter, there are farmers out there making a living. Though there wasn't an ... Read more
Better to be a slave to God than pay tribute to the devil
Wednesday, January 09, 2013      2 comments

Do I continue to overeat? Yeah, a little. I don't think the overeating bugs me as much as the 'eat when you aren't hungry' bit. It doesn't matter if I'm hungry or not, I want to eat. It's partially a bad habit and partially something much deeper... Read more
A week in...and no change!
Monday, January 07, 2013      3 comments

When I say "no change," I really mean no change. No positive change. Forget the scale (which says I'm almost 300 pounds) which is the devil anyway since it's main job is to DISCOURAGE! Anyway, I'm talking more about just...my habits. I'... Read more
Keeping at it

We got a new dog! She's super cute. But she causes a problem...I can't go to the gym. She has severe problems with separation anxiety and part of her training involves making sure she's never alone. My husband has work and school and he has to k... Read more
I know I do better.

I KNOW I do better when I work out. I KNOW I do better when I eat healthy breakfast. I KNOW I do better when I keep the fat and calories under control. But some days, it's like I don't care! Like today....I must've eaten a small ... Read more
How it's been going
Friday, February 11, 2011      2 comments

So everything has been going well. I've been doing water aerobics for the last week and plan to continue it next week (I'm out of commission for a few days - one guess as to why!). My personal trainer has put me on a restricted diet...1,30... Read more
I finally stepped it up
Friday, January 28, 2011      3 comments

So I went to the gym today to ask about membership, stuff like that, etc. And we got into a conversation about a personal trainer. Our recruiter talked about a woman that was 320 pounds, and worked really hard to get it off, and lost a lot at t... Read more
Figuring it out!

So today I was walking the dog and I had a bout of inspiration. I walk by an outside track with the dog that belongs to a school, and I see people walking their dogs all the time on it. So why don't I take a lap or two in the middle of my dog w... Read more
Who knew biking was hard?
Tuesday, January 18, 2011      1 comments

I tell ya...I about passed out after ten minutes of biking...hardest ten minutes of my weight loss journey this far! I have not ridden a bike in years and years. I biked about a mile - the same circuit I walk with the dog. It was HARD! I didn't ... Read more
Better life, better me - silver lining
Sunday, January 16, 2011      1 comments

So today, even though I'm in a moody state, things are picking up. Today was the first day in forever I stayed within my calorie range. Yesterday I found out I was approved for an CMSP application, which means my doctors bills - 1,200 - were fu... Read more

Hi, everyone. I wish to sum up my life from the last few months. There have been a lot of good moments, but also a lot of bad. I quit Spark again early October. I don't know why; it's just the way my life has gone. I start things and t... Read more
