Frustrated With A Plan
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      4 comments

I really don't know what is going on but I am frustrated. I was so careful with what I ate while in Dallas. I did not have access to nutrition information for the most part but I made good choices, only ate half my meals (until I was full), an... Read more
A Bad Morning and Rambling
Monday, October 04, 2010      3 comments

I hate when my morning starts off bad. It sets the tone for my whole day. It doesn't help that I feel like I am in over my head right now and am stressed beyond belief. Sometimes I wonder how I will ever get through all of this. My husband's... Read more
Conference
Thursday, September 30, 2010      2 comments

I am leaving for a CASA conference in Dallas in just a few hours. I hate going to these things. There is always good information but I don't like being away from my family. It is hard on me and it is hard on the kids. Last night my youngest ... Read more

A little over a week ago I received the bride's maid dress for my sister's wedding. She chose a dress from an online wedding apparel company in China because the price was not too bad and she liked the dress. I spent almost $200 on the dress a... Read more
New Clothes

I spent twenty minutes yesterday morning going through my closet. I have said a million times that I am going to get rid of all of my big clothes but have been a little afraid to. Yesterday I realized I have a closet full of clothes but only o... Read more
A New Week and A New Promise

This weekend was rough. I had the issue of my daughter's lying and felt like I shadowed her all weekend. I know she didn't like the feeling of me looking over her shoulder but I did't like it either. We are working on the issue and she now kn... Read more

I started this journey last October at 262 pounds. I set small goals for myself and then listed my bigger goals on on Sparkpage. The goal I immediatly started looking forward to was being under 200 pounds but it seems everytime that goal was c... Read more
Game On
Tuesday, September 21, 2010      4 comments

Last night I cried for over an hour. I just felt completely defeated. I tried on my dress and it is sized small, which was one of my biggest fears. It fit great everywhere except the chest. The middle looked amazing. It was fitted but didn'... Read more
Tired and Rambling
Monday, September 20, 2010      3 comments

It has been a long day. I woke up at 2 this morning and had trouble going back to sleep. Between the dog barking and my mind whirling, I just couldn't sleep. I turned off my alarm at 4:45 to try and get some sleep but just was not sleepy. So... Read more

I am so frustrated today. I have been using my Nike + and iPod to calculate my mileage. My husband had assured me more than once that he had used his truck to measure the distance and my iPod calculations were pretty close. According to this ... Read more
Mid-Week Assessment
Wednesday, September 15, 2010      2 comments

It's Wednesday which means it is time for my mid-week weigh-in. I can be rather obsessive about the scale and find that I do better if I check my weight at least twice per week. Sometimes I do do it more often but a mid-week check really helps... Read more
The Power of Running
Tuesday, September 14, 2010      8 comments

Several years ago, my husband introduced me to a coach he was working with who had lost a lot of weight by running. By the time I knew this man he was very slim but he had weighed over 300 pounds at one time. He told my husband that he had jus... Read more

In my blog this morning I asked for help keeping me accountable and pushing myself. The new Biggest Loser Challenge begins today and it is the perfect time for me to set new goals and reaffirm the goals I have set. So here are my goals for thi... Read more
