Haven't been able to blog for a while. Or that's what i told myself. Then I realized sometimes a blog is just to say, 'Hey there. Hope you're all doing well, and that you're making progress towards your goals, whatever they may be. And if today ... Read more

That would be my lovely black skirt that I've had for three, THREE years but never worn. I bought them because I really loved the style, a-line with an inverted pleat in front. So anyway, I stuffed them in the bottom of my 'thin clothes suitcase... Read more
No lbs lost, but where'd that waist go??

Scales barely moved last week; one scale was up 0.75lbs, the other down barely 1lb. BUT, waist down almost an inch, and neck down 0.5 inches. Victory!... Read more
A word on weight loss surgery
Sunday, February 20, 2011      5 comments

I just read an interesting blog from a fellow Sparker trying to clarify why Weight Loss Surgery is a valid (and I would argue, necessary) option for some of us on this journey. I have no intention of trying to convince anyone - on the assumption... Read more

I'm not updating my ticker this week because I'm either exactly where I was last week, or I've dropped 3lbs, depending on which scales I choose. Well, I don't want to choose, so I'll just say that I've been broadly on track all week, except for ... Read more
Moving along nicely, thank you

Today I stepped on the scales - and had dropped 5lbs from the last week. Ok, clearly my body is kind of doing it's own thing right now. My dimensions haven't changed - much; waist is about a quarter inch down - but definitely moved some water we... Read more
Month end blues - or grays

One of my stated goals, in the heady, early days (gosh, was that only 3 weeks ago??) of my post-surgery weight loss was to hit 270lbs by end of January. That seems totally laughable now. Only I'm not laughing. No, I'm not unhappy with my progr... Read more
Weight GAIN?? On less than 1000 calories per day?? :-(

OK, I'm not really blue. Let me list a few of the cool things that have happened since I returned home 1. I got internet access back (in record time!) 2. I lost 3 INCHES off my waist. 3. I fit into my 'skinny' jeans - at last (purposely bo... Read more
Learning my hunger - and a slight detour
Monday, January 24, 2011      3 comments

Confession: broke every rule and had a snack attack at midnight, thereabouts. Thing is, I was craving spicy/savoury, and I'd just got these DVDs.... The good news is I couldn't actually eat more than 2 spoonfuls before I had to stop. And that wa... Read more

Well, weight change from yesterday - zero. Which means I end the week 5.5lbs lighter than same time last week. Not bad. Yes, I wanted much more, but I'm happy with progress. I decided to go ahead and eat a decent meal for a change, and I do... Read more
Head scratching time

Ok, so I stepped on the scales this morning (I know, I know, I should weigh once a week at most because weight can and does fluctuate daily, but...!) - and I had GAINED 1.5lbs. Well. Ok, I knew it was a possibility especially given how the weigh... Read more
It's in my head

Lost another 2.5lbs - IN ONE DAY! Again, really excited about it, but almost cannot let myself get excited. Today I weigh 291lbs, which is lighter than I have been in over a whole year. Wow! I sat down on the toilet for a few minutes just t... Read more
1 week and dropping

According to my trusted bathroom scales, I now weigh about 7lbs less than just over a week ago. That's half a stone. It's not that I'm not excited about it, but frankly I'm a little scared, too. That's faster than anything I've ever had (except ... Read more
Welcome to phase 2

Well, it's been a while. In the meantime, I've gained and lost the same 10 - 15lbs over and again over the past year. That story is so old, I'll just skip it. So I decided to get surgical help, and have gone ahead and done a sleeve gastrec... Read more

I weigh less than 300lbs. That is a fact. And that was NOT a fact for the 3 years between 2005 - 2008. It has become a fact now because of something I did. Something(s) I changed. I have changed; that is also a fact. I am stating all these ... Read more
