No numbers
Wednesday, May 16, 2012      1 comments

My whole life I've obsessed about my weight in terms of numbers. Sizes, pounds, and yes, counting calories, fat grams, carbs, whatever the latest info tells us to count. And you know what? I'm really freaking sick of the whole mess. I have ... Read more
It was my vitamin D levels
Monday, April 02, 2012      3 comments

So turns out the blood work I had done revealed that my vitamin D levels are very low. So I'm on supplements to bring it back up. Who knew? I had no idea that vitamin D can affect weight issues, but apparently it's quite common for that to coinc... Read more
If only there was an explanation

My goal for 2012 was to get down to 180 from 213. It is now mid-March, and I am at 206. The frustrating thing is that I have actually been doing what I'm supposed to do. I went over to Weight Watchers mid-January since I have always had suc... Read more
Having fun with Zumba
Friday, January 06, 2012      3 comments

My in-laws gave me Zumba 2 for Wii for Christmas. I don't have the first one, and in fact, only got a Wii console a few weeks ago. I'd never had ANY gaming system in my life, so it was kind of a big deal. (The parents weren't big believers of al... Read more
Back after personal tragedy
Monday, December 19, 2011      2 comments

Well, shoot. Where to start? I finished a four-year degree in 2.5 years. This last semester was so brutal, I admittedly just threw everything out the window in order to get it done -- including taking care of myself. I gained 11 pounds sinc... Read more
New plan/challenge to lose 12 pounds.
Saturday, August 27, 2011      0 comments

Hey, friends! I've been riding the Nom Train pretty fast and hard since I got married almost two weeks ago. The honeymoon consisted of many cupcakes and other splurges, and it has been hard to make it stop. Since we've been back, there have... Read more
We eloped!
Monday, August 22, 2011      3 comments

After canceling a big wedding that was to have been the first week of August, we were planning to reschedule for next year -- but we didn't want to wait! So we just eloped last week in Hilton Head Island. What a blast! It was so romantic, a... Read more
Well, moving ruins everything.

Ok, well... we had a horrendous move. Seriously, everything that could have gone wrong during this move went wrong. In the midst of that, I have been dealing with very intense summer classes and my fiance started a new job. The stove/range didn'... Read more
GREAT week!
Sunday, July 10, 2011      0 comments

Week One of my six week challenge went very well! The goal was to do 4 5ks (on treadmill), and I only did 3 because of not feeling well one day I had it scheduled. However, I did an hour of power yoga instead, so I still consider the goal m... Read more
Back on track, in every way.
Sunday, July 03, 2011      1 comments

My original plan for the summer was far too ambitious for the amount of time I have given full-time classes, moving, and planning to start a business next year. So I've come up with another one for the next six weeks, which is when the seme... Read more
Big changes
Monday, June 06, 2011      2 comments

I still can't believe I'm saying this, though we decided almost a week ago: we're not getting married in August. Or possibly ever. Just not sure right now. My life is a bit of a crazy mess at the moment. But in any case, I'm... Read more
10 week plan
Tuesday, May 24, 2011      1 comments

For ten weeks, I'm putting a new exercise system into place. While I've lost 15 pounds overall, I've still got 35 I want to drop before I reach my goal. It has taken me the better part of a year to get those 15 pounds off, too! I'm inconsistent.... Read more
Could be better, but could also be worse.
Tuesday, May 03, 2011      1 comments

The last two weeks have been mega-stressful. I got off track -- not terribly, but enough to stall out my progress and regain a couple of pounds. But I'm back on track, have been for a couple of days. My stress caused me to seek out comfort food,... Read more
Stagnant week
Sunday, April 24, 2011      0 comments

I was back up to 198 when I weighed in this morning. I'm a bit frustrated but not letting it get me down. I did have a couple of indulgences this week, so I guess that is the problem. Just can't do that if I want to keep making progress in such ... Read more
Progress photos
Sunday, April 17, 2011      0 comments

It might be premature to post these photos of me in my wedding dress, but I thought it was very striking. (I am not getting married until August, it's just one of the few times I will take full-length photos is when I am trying on the dress!) ... Read more
