This weekend I picked myself up a treat, Yoplait Whips. I liked texture of these yogurts and looked forward to having them for breakfast. Wow, am I glad I only bought two! This morning I grabbed a handful of cherries and a yogurt. I scoo... Read more
My arms got longer?

This weekend I decided to give my husband a break and did the dishes. Normally I do the cooking and he does the tidying but everyone needs a break now and then. I don't like doing dishes, it hurts my back but as I was cleaning up I realized t... Read more
I wore my shirt tucked in today
Tuesday, June 10, 2014      6 comments

I don't think I've ever heard my husband so excited about his attire before and I'm proud of him. Going from a size 56 - 48 he's now able to tuck in his shirt. This is something he has not done for over 10 years. It's so cool watching ... Read more
Who's lost 50 pounds...ME ME ME ME ME ME ME
Thursday, June 05, 2014      9 comments

That's right, I did it! I stepped on and off the scale five times just to make sure. I figured the goal deserved a different username as well, silly little thing but I just feel so different and pulled out an old nickname I used to get calle... Read more
49.8 pounds down
Wednesday, June 04, 2014      0 comments

That's right...not 50, 49.8. I swear I heard the scale trying to stifle a snicker at me. I love seeing the changes and tracking the weight loss and cm lost but I notice there is one important measurement missing. Chin count! This week I... Read more
Over the hill, through the brush and up the creek

That's how we hike! This weekend we headed off the beaten path and hit the sort of almost, can you find it trails. The more we get out and explore the more I'm enjoying this type of hiking instead of walks in the forest. Six kilometers o... Read more
100 calories, what can that do?
Wednesday, May 28, 2014      4 comments

Last night I was cleaning out the pantry and I came across a box of 100 calorie packs I had forgotten I had put in there. They had been there for a few months now, pushed to the back, completely forgotten about. I used to love those things. I... Read more
Running never felt so good

Yesterday I set up an exercise challenge for myself to help push past my comfort level. Last night I completed my first challenge. I ran. I slowly built up till I finally got to the level where I could make that switch from fast walk to jog t... Read more
Push or be content?

Getting into the smaller jeans and being able to do our hike without stopping were amazing highlights of my past week but I need to focus on the next hurdles. It would be so easy to stop now, I'm at a size where my clothes shopping now includ... Read more
It's what size?! Now that's motivating!
Saturday, May 24, 2014      5 comments

Today I went jean shopping, hoped for the best but kept in the back of my mind that I haven't lost THAT much weight. I started the year in size 22. My size 20s were really baggy but I wasn't sure if they were really too big or I had jus... Read more
Ya, I did that!

I really enjoy stepping on the scale each week and seeing the changes there and the measuring tape but it's the changes I see in our day to day lives that really make me want to keep going and get excited. My husband and I like to hike,... Read more
Curse you window reflection!
Monday, May 19, 2014      5 comments

This weekend as I was heading into the bank I caught my reflection in the window. I did not like what I saw. I looked up at the security camera as I went in, just as bad. I'm fat. I've worked so hard but I'm still fat. When I got home I... Read more

Last night we trekked up a mountain to de-stress and get some wonderful sunshine. It wasn't until we started down when my husband came to a complete stop, pointed at the ground and stared. I looked and before my brain could flip to the ... Read more
Taking the weekend off
Wednesday, May 14, 2014      3 comments

As I lay in bed last night I made one request to my husband. Can we take this weekend off? Last weekend was WONDERFUL, but I think I need a weekend to recover from my weekend. On Sunday two of my kids, my husband and I hit Vancouver and... Read more
Mother's day
Tuesday, May 06, 2014      4 comments

This year I opted to skip our normal Mother's Day routine of ordering in Chinese food and the kids all coming over. I gave my husband full control of planning the day and honestly, I didn't expect much. Last night I got the plans. This ... Read more
