After 5 years and a bunch of pounds later, here I am
Wednesday, May 21, 2014      11 comments

I think it was 5 years ago that I joined Sparkpeople, although I can't be sure. Time is flying! I lost a total of 97 pounds, became an athlete, ran a 10k, joined roller derby, and felt great. Then I had a baby. And another. And here I am, a... Read more
I'm back! With a baby!

Theodore Archer B... was born on 8/6/12 at 11:11 pm. He weighed 7 lbs 12 oz and is in great health. My doctors had told me to expect a big baby (I think because they saw my 6'7" husband), but Theo was just the right size. I went mostly natura... Read more
Pregnancy Update - Final Countdown

I've barely been on Sparkpeople at all over the past ?? months. It's hard to watch my body put on weight after working so hard to lose it, but it's for a good cause. In another months (give or take) I'll have a fat little baby boy and I'll get... Read more
Low carb for pregnancy
Saturday, January 14, 2012      8 comments

I'm about 11 and a half weeks into my pregnancy and have gained eight pounds. I'd like to say that it's all due to my ginormously growing boobs, or eight pounds of constipation, but it's not exactly true. While I had morning sickness, all... Read more

I'm pregnant! Yep, had my first ultrasound this morning. There's an adorable little blob with a nice strong heartbeat ticking away inside of me. I'm just over 7 weeks and halfway through the first trimester. Actually, within a couple... Read more
I had to buy bigger jeans :(

Yeah, I've been overindulging. A lot. I love bacon. So today I had to buy larger pants. One size 12, one size 14. Boo. I could make an excuse about how I'm bloated because of PMS (which I am) but the truth is I know I've put ... Read more
Another catching up blog (weight, tattoo, roller derby...big fun!)

Several people have stopped by my page recently to see how I've been doing and what I'm up to. Thank you! I've been having a great summer in general terms, not so great in weight loss though. I've probably put on a few more and haven't wanted... Read more

Been off track but feeling AWESOME
Sunday, June 26, 2011      5 comments

I started a Biggest Loser Challenge with high hopes that it will help kick-start my motivation to eat better. Well I'm motivated, for sure, but I haven't been eating better ... Read more
My new tattoo!
Sunday, June 19, 2011      21 comments

Yesterday I got a new tattoo! This is one I've been thinking about for a while, and now seemed like the best time. It's of a Baku, which is a mythical Japanese creature with elements of the lion, bulldog, and elephant. It feeds on nightma... Read more

Well, I've been tracking for three days now and have managed to stay in rang and near the lower end of my range. I'm kind of an all or nothing person. If I'm tracking, I'm all in. If I'm not, well that's where my trouble with moderation sneak... Read more
On my way back

I'm back for real this time and even re-joined my former Biggest Loser team for a challenge. I hope that weekly weigh ins will help me stay motivated and get me out of this weight loss funk I've been in. My husband, as always, is very supp... Read more
Hitting that low point. Again
Friday, June 10, 2011      13 comments

At least my low point is coming at 190-ish pounds this time, rather than my previous 275-ish. My feeling of total power and badass-iness has faded somewhat. I've gotten squishy. I don't have that awesome feeling of being in control and be... Read more
What my Nutritionist said
Thursday, May 12, 2011      11 comments

So, as I've blogged before, I scheduled an appointment with a Nutritionist to figure out how to better manage my calories in light of the intense workouts I've had. And what I found out kind of surprised me. I'm not entirely convinced, which I... Read more
I should know better
Tuesday, May 03, 2011      14 comments

The scale tells lies. I tried to reconcile with it, but it's playing mind games. I stayed off the scale for a while, knowing that I was putting on muscle and that my main objective is to lose fat. Well, my clothes are not fitting the way I li... Read more
