Well I did it. I ran for 4 minutes. Not all at the same time, but I did it. And I'll do it again on Thursday. I ate within my range yesterday and will do my best to do the same today. I need to be mentally in this game and start reaching my goal... Read more

Life seems to keep getting in the way of my goals. Its not any one big thing, but a series of little things that seems to throw me off. I think I need to try harder to focus only on me and what I need to succeed, and then not compromise when its... Read more

I keep getting astounded at how I look in photos. I really, really want to see how I can change this and see the beautiful parts of my body again. I think I've been ignoring my own image for a while, and I want to get back to the point where I w... Read more

Yesterday's nutrition was spot on with daily recommended values. Insane that the calorie portion "pie" was exactly perfect, considering I was only really looking at calories. The evening was tough, but I picked up and went to the store to have f... Read more

This morning's weigh in was 185.2. I think that might be the lowest WI on a Monday yet. Photos of me during vacation and at my professional conference have been shocking- why do I still get suprised when I see myself in a photo? I guess I feel ... Read more

I have to do this. I looked back and was shocked to discover that I've only been weighing in once per month, not logging in every day, no streaks and not logging water and food. I have no reason to expect to lose just by willing it. I have... Read more
