During my weight loss this year I have keep a pretty low profile with friends. Not that I've become a hermit but I haven't been around quite as much as I normally would simply because I've been out doing stuff. Some of my closer friends have ... Read more

After losing some weight I like a lot of people I put most of it back on and got another chance at changing my life. I don't have a lot of body shots but here's my journey so far. Highest weight, 310 pounds. ... Read more

I had a great weekend away with my daughter. We did a lot of walking, shopping and laughing. We ran out of time to go hiking but with the amount of walking we did I wasn't too hurt. I did come home 5 pounds heavier though, time to take stock.... Read more

I've dug into work this morning and got a crazy amount done and then looked at the clock, how on earth can it only be 8:00? I've only been at work for 2 hours?! I grabbed raspberries for my breakfast only to find out there were a couple of mo... Read more

Last night I let my daughter talk me into coming with her to a pole "exercise" class next week. She claims that there are all shapes and sizes there and one woman is about 70. Now my daughter is 19 so by 70 I'm sure she means 55, we all look ... Read more

When I did my weekly weigh in for WW today I had to do a double look, and then move the scale to five different locations on the floor, and then check the other scale. I did it. The last few days my body has been doing an amazing j... Read more
My love/hate relationship with my next mini goal
Monday, September 01, 2014      2 comments

232 is my next mini goal. It's a number that has some meaning to me and will make me happy to reach it but at the same time a reality check. 232 is what I weighed when I went into the hospital to have my first baby. I had preeclampsia a... Read more

Made the goal, reached the goal...now what
Friday, August 29, 2014      4 comments

Reaching a goal that we set can be so exciting. For me it was the hike I did a couple of weeks ago. I was on a high or a week afterwards, but what happens after we reach those goals? The adrenaline rush from meeting our goals is intoxica... Read more

Anyone with kids has heard that way too many times to count, and then the eye roll when you suggest fruit. Today it was my turn with a twist. I stood in front of the fridge looking for breakfast and thought to myself, there's nothing to... Read more

Sometimes we just need to give our heads a shake. I need to attend an event today, I need to be dressed. Since I have been losing weight and since I telecommute for my job I have not invested in dress pants. I have gotten by on my jeans... Read more

This year I've lost 60 pounds for a total of 70 pounds lost but for the last month I've been dragging and inching a long. The only real loss I had was when I found out my scale was out by 5 pounds. In the last 4 weeks I've lost 2 pounds. ... Read more
