Woman's World interviewed me last week and plans to profile my weight loss in the 6/3 issue of their magazine, on the newsstands the last week of May. I was part of a photo shoot last weekend--around 100 shots and three different outfits. T... Read more
Coming up fast to 2013 New Years Resolutions
Thursday, November 29, 2012      8 comments

Last year, my New Year's Resolution was to get to 135 and stay under that number for the rest of the year. On 1/1/13, I wanted to be under 135. I was 145 at the time and to be honest, I looked lumpy in the skimpy dress I put on to celebrate that... Read more

One year of consistent work-outs...I now weigh what I weighed when I was 15. 34-24.5-34.5. Not bad! I can also do most of my weight-lifting at 90lbs (though I do my abductor and adductor at 120/140 and my leg press at 135!!) and lift close to ... Read more
Marking my one year anniversary!
Friday, July 20, 2012      7 comments

Today marks one full year of embracing health--cutting wheat by 99% (grains by about 95% since I still occasionally eat quinoa or brown rice), sugar by 99% (there's apparently sugar in ketchup and tomato sauce), caffeine by 95% (they tell me the... Read more
Keeping track...

I leave today for Europe weighing 122. And I know if I weigh myself after I go work out, it will be a little less. I'm wearing a size 4 and it's loose. I'm going to be logging my meals here over the next 17 days because there's a magazine ... Read more
Doctor's visit
Thursday, March 08, 2012      6 comments

Doctor was really impressed with my progress. Weighed in at 131.....I was 188 last time he weighed me. He's letting me go off statins since the generics were not working like the Lipitor did (and I can maintain 237 without statins!), and he's l... Read more

Today I hit 131.6. It's the lowest I've been in about 10 years. My pants fit me exactly the way I wanted them to fit today and I liked what I saw in the mirror. It happened that today was also the day I went to a surprise birthday luncheon fo... Read more
Some recoveries, some letting go...

I hit the ultimate milestone today. I think everyone has a piece of clothing they truly love and dream of getting into. Mine were my JAG jeans. I can't tell you why, I've just always loved them. They were my marking point of being truly thin. W... Read more

Today marks 6 months since I started taking care of myself on July 20, 2011. I thought it would take me a year but it took about 5 months to go from size 16 to 4/6. I can't even wear size 8 pants anymore--they sag on me! On February 1, I ... Read more
Rowing

Concept2 ran an indoor rowing challenge from November 24 (Thanksgiving) to December 24 (Xmas eve). If you completed 100,000 meters during that period, they'd give .02 cents per meter to one of three charities that you chose. If you rowed... Read more

I have changed my goal.
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      10 comments

This is hard for me. I grew up thinking the perfect weight for me was 115. A few years back, I adjusted that to 128 because I'd seen that when I hit 113 back when I was 41, I looked anorexic. This time around, I decided to set my goal weight... Read more
