Day 61: Grateful
Sunday, February 28, 2010      33 comments

I am grateful for my home. I love every crack and crevice and I will try to get rid of as many dustballs today and take down my Christmas lights (indoors). I keep them up to keep me happy. ... Read more
Day 60: Friday Nites Suck
Saturday, February 27, 2010      47 comments

The last two Friday nights have thrown me for a loop. I get seriously pissy and whining and moody. I realize the closer I get to my goal and the more sure I am of myself - the more I realize that I am here to fix my whole life. And I don't have ... Read more
Day 59: Friggin' and Freakin'
Friday, February 26, 2010      35 comments

My summer is right friggin’ now. And it’s not about making anyone else happy but me. Me. No, it is not easy. No, going back is not an option. There is nothing back there for me. That’s why I left in the first place. My summer is r... Read more

Yet another snowstorm. I have never been so fed up with snow - ever. No really. I am done with it. Over it. I do have some snow storm rules now though... 1) Never lock yourself in the house with anything remotely good to eat. There is ... Read more
Day 57: Push It
Wednesday, February 24, 2010      57 comments

I am seriously in a zone now. I am a nutrition tracker wizard. I know what to eat to make me feel good and not so good. I’ve got the portions under control. I know how and when to work out and I am rocking the strength training. And I have my sp... Read more
Day 56: Still Standing
Tuesday, February 23, 2010      45 comments

Last night, I had a great strength workout, but I didn’t have enough energy to do the Zumba class. In the past, the perfectionist in me would still be beating myself up. But this morning I woke up thankful for another day. I am just happy to be ... Read more
Day 55: The Smallest Act
Monday, February 22, 2010      40 comments

A long time ago, I was painfully shy and hated people looking at me so the idea of accepting a compliment seemed insincere. Now, not only do I love giving people compliments but I have learned to take them too. Taking the compliment signifies th... Read more
Day 54: Grateful
Sunday, February 21, 2010      33 comments

I have decided on Sundays. I will spend a little more time being grateful... I am grateful for some really baggy clothes. My clothes are like tents on me now. I wear them around the house as reminders because I seriously can't believe this ... Read more
Day 53: Saturday
Saturday, February 20, 2010      24 comments

Last night, I had a major hissy fit. Nothing but whining, tears and self-pity. The way I used to deal with a foul mood was eating everything in sight. No binging this time. Not even a thought. That's not so noteworthy really... But t... Read more
Day 52: Being Easy
Friday, February 19, 2010      40 comments

I remember when Fridays meant stocking up on McD's McHeart Attack burgers after work, and then I'd mozy on over to 7-11 for the yummies with cream in the middle. I would hate to get out of the car because, of course, I would run into someone I k... Read more

I really don’t know how to respond when people throw comments like this into the conversation: “Oh, I am so fat,” “I hate my thighs,” “I hate my [fill in the blank].” Partially because we were just talking about something non-related like a TV s... Read more

I love it here. I really do. I spend a lot of time making a concerted effort to stay positive so I spend a lot of time sparking. Positivity is the difference between this time and every other time. It is the only way to win in the end. ... Read more
Day 48: Slower is Better
Monday, February 15, 2010      39 comments

I spent the weekend looking at my fingers. 48 days later and they look skinny. It makes me think of all of the times that I looked at parts of my body and could never see or say anything good. I could not see any beauty because in my head it jus... Read more
Day 47: Love Day
Sunday, February 14, 2010      14 comments

The only thing that matters to me today is that I have found the love I want to show myself. That makes this best the Valentine's Day I've had - and the first in many where I will maintain the goal of loving myself. Oh I am so just getting ... Read more
