Starting Over!

I'm officially starting over today. I reset my trackers and I'm back! I hadn't logged in since September, and while I was gone I gained 16 pounds. That's ok, it's coming off again and staying off this time. Things are still as crazy as... Read more

We went to a wedding this weekend. I looked great in the mirror before I left, but the pictures snapped of me at the wedding were less than flattering. Oh well - I'm going to save them anyway, and use them as motivation. I'm always, alway... Read more

My mom is back in ICU. They’re not sure what’s going on with her yet, they’re still ruling things out. She has an “altered mental status” which is medical jargon for she can’t speak and doesn’t seem to recognize anyone. I found her on the flo... Read more

My boss keeps a candy bowl on the table between us, that he refills weekly so he can throw some chocolate at various grouchy women. (He's not a stupid man). I do a pretty good job staying out of it, but today he put in little Snickers bars! (O... Read more

I couldn't help myself - I got on the scale this morning. Down a pound! (actually 1.2!) Yeah! I have come to the realization that I have a fundamental problem with food. I want to eat, all the time, whether I'm hungry or not. I have to b... Read more

It's a small one - but still! I only ate 2 pieces of pizza for dinner last night. Since pizza is my FAVORITE food, that's really an accomplishment for me. :-) Yesterday was great. When I got off work, my hubby and kids went over to visi... Read more

I'm looking forward to a better weekend than the last one. Last Friday my mom had a meltdown (it was her second day at rehab) and cried and cried and begged me to bring her home. Of course, I couldn't do that. And, luckily, she seems to be ad... Read more
