Only 1,731 days later... Coming out of the dark
Friday, October 11, 2019      2 comments

Sooo.... It's been awhile. It's crazy to me that it's been about 5 years. A lot has happened in that time. A lot of good and a lot of bad. Note that the following might be triggering and upsetting if you have been affected by depression and/or... Read more
Surprise! I haven't fallen off the Earth!

Okie dokie, so I knew when I first embarked on this journey that the first time around went a bit too smoothly. My weight line plot was a fairly consistent downward trend. I made it to a low weight of 203...and then life got in the way. The wors... Read more

This has been possibly the most frustrating stretch of the journey so far. At least when I was gaining, I knew why I was gaining. I was eating poorly, not exercising, and not tracking anything. Now though I have been tracking everything, keeping... Read more
A new and better me (skeletons and all)
Wednesday, September 11, 2013      2 comments

It's hard for me to think back to myself as an adolescent and the dichotomy between who I once was and who I am now. In a new town and with a fresh start I feel as if I don't have to have that past with me anymore, but at times I'm painfully rem... Read more
If I keep saying I'm back, eventually it will stick right?

I know I've been MIA and in-and-out for really the past year. It has been such a crazy year I can hardly believe I'm in the last week. For those of you that missed the past story, I've been in a master's degree program this year in which our gro... Read more

It has been so hard to see how far I have back-tracked since I last made an effort! Yes, seeing the scale go up and up was bad enough, but now that I have been trying to work out more regularly and eat on track, I am really seeing the consequenc... Read more
get back on that horse
Wednesday, January 16, 2013      0 comments

Well, my little detours off track have taken me on a whole road trip off the deep end. I gave up. I'll confess to that, because when after losing a hundred pounds you suddenly start to eat pizza twice a week, go out and eat greasy nutritionally ... Read more
Getting back at it...also a DATE?!
Thursday, June 07, 2012      3 comments

So, I went through a pretty bad couple months of plateau and slight relapse, but I'm happy to report that I have been eating mostly clean and have been getting back at the exercise. It's disappointing to be back where I was months ago, but I sti... Read more
This is why you never "take a break"

Well Sparklers, I have been pretty non-existent on Sparkpeople since I started Student Teaching in January. Since then, I have graduated from college, accepted a position as a resident teacher in a school district for the upcoming year and am n... Read more

Ok, so my friend just got engaged about 2-3 weeks ago. They want to get married yet this summer (end of July) so she wasted no time in planning the wedding. She already bought her dress and set the date with the church. Just this week she asked ... Read more

It has been almost 9 months since I started my journey towards a healthier life here on SparkPeople and I've hit that 100 pounds down mark that I've been looking forward to for a long, long time! This blog is going to be a potpourri of random ac... Read more
Aaannndd....I'm over it.
Friday, January 06, 2012      7 comments

I'm completely over beating myself up for the holidays and vacations that have been making the scale go up and down like crazy for the last month. Looking back over it all, December wasn't great, but it certainly wasn't bad either. I finally loo... Read more
MIA, but I'm still in the game!
Monday, November 28, 2011      2 comments

So it has been approximately three months since my last blog entry @_@ I know, I don't know how that happened either. My life has been absolute chaos since school started again, and some things just had to go. I've been able to log in every day ... Read more

This summer has been life changing, to say the least. I'm still planning to do an all-out summer wrap up blog this weekend, but for now I'll just say that my discovery of SparkPeople on April 29, 2011 was nothing short of extraordinary. I'm seri... Read more
