I hope everyone is having a nice long weekend. I finally started back exercising yesterday. I've planned on it for months now, lol, but have been very sedentary. I finally have renewed motivation to make changes. I started a Couch to 5... Read more

I am so sick of myself I could scream. Sick of attempting to lose weight and failing. Oh, it’s my own fault – for sure – but finding that “willpower” or “inner strength” or whatever you want to call it seems impossible. Let me say that I ... Read more
Still Existing

I keep thinking to myself when "this" (insert whatever it is, a holiday, party, deadline at work, etc) is over, I will get back on track. I'll just not exercise and eat whatever until then. How's that working for me? Oh it is NOT. Not... Read more

So much has been going on over the past two weeks! A lot of changes. I've been running around like a crazy woman between work and being a chauffeur to the kids! This is my new schedule: Get up at 650, drive Jennah to her babysitti... Read more

Today was good. Under 1800 calories. No eating after 7. I'll take it! I just made a decision today to start taking morning walks before work. The dr I work for says I don't have to punch out to exercise (he's awesome like that). I get... Read more

Just a quick check in. I have done really well over the past few days. I made a new goal for myself, when I am at home, I will NOT EAT AFTER 7! It's easier to have that finite rule rather than to think - oh, i have 250 calories left, let's e... Read more
Goals for June: Day 10
Sunday, June 01, 2014      2 comments

June 1st. 10 days back since I re-started (officially). I'm at that precarious place where it's still new and you have the hope before you actually feel any difference whatsoever. After a month you start feeling like it's becoming a habit - t... Read more

Today has been a good day. It was gorgeous outside. Sunny and 81. Birds singing. Blue skies. I spent the morning with my girls. Jennah will be 18 in a few weeks. She is graduating on the 4th. I'm so proud of her! She made the top ... Read more
One Step Backward, Two Steps Forward, Right?

So it's been a few days of me throwing a pity party and just eating way too much. Ok, done now. Time to make strides to get back on track! I almost started again today. Mindlessly doing what I have always done. I drove to McDonald's an... Read more
Already a binge :/
Sunday, May 25, 2014      5 comments

So I am admitting to a binge this evening. Probably ate about 2,000 or more calories in about an hour. What triggered it? No idea. I made pinto beans in the Crock pot. I planned to eat them with brown rice. I made curly pasta with ol... Read more
A Twinge of Hope

There are many many days when I feel like I am completely incapable of losing this weight. It's just SO much to lose. That's why my attempts have yo-yo'd so much over the past several years. I always end up right where I am at now. 340. I m... Read more

This is my menu plan - remember I am on a VERY strict budget - so there isn't a great balance - but I am doing the best with what I have! This will go through my next payday. Breakfasts will consist of overnight oatmeal with fruit or a ve... Read more
Never Stop Trying - I'm Not Giving Up
Friday, May 23, 2014      2 comments

Well, it's been over 4 months. I am both happy and disgusted to say that I have lost 10 pounds over that time. That is 2.5 pounds a month or .675 a week. In real life, I actually gained about 10, lost those and an additional 10. So the rolle... Read more
