A Critical Countdown
Thursday, April 28, 2011      5 comments

Well, I guess it's been about a month since I blogged... I wrote this really fantastic blog on Tuesday about how humans don't naturally have utter self-acceptance, but my computer died just as I was finishing it, and I lost the whole thing... I'... Read more
Plateau ain't just a geographical phenomenon
Tuesday, March 29, 2011      4 comments

I am SO frustrated with this plateau. 9 days ago, I weighed 281 and change. I started my monthlies, and the following morning, I weighed 285. I didn't panic... I know the toll that hormones and such take on your body... so I waited... ... Read more
Could everyone please...

I would just love it if everyone could just please get off my back now, when I say I'm doing low-carb or when I get full-fat dairy instead of low fat anything. Please see the link below.

Progress already, and incentive
Friday, December 03, 2010      0 comments

So, apparently, I've lost 5.6 lbs in the last 3 days. That doesn't seem right. I am sure it is just water, or whatever, but I must say, it is a relief that I didn't have to battle that first 5 lbs uphill, considering how far I have to ... Read more

I'm afraid to step on the scale. I know I need to, just to gauge where I am, but I know it will be bad. The indulgences of late summer, stress of a new job, and now Thanksgiving feasts, have undone all my hard work from the first half of t... Read more

Day 11 of very Low Carb. 12.8 lbs lost. 28 lbs for the year. 3 lbs away from my first major goal - 10% of my starting weight lost. Yesterday, at work, there was a giant cookie cake with gooey icing sitting in the conference room. I g... Read more
Low-carb Lunacy!
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      6 comments

You have to know that I mean "Lunacy" in the most flattering of ways. Starting yesterday, one of my BFF's and I started on Atkins. It's about the third or fourth time I've done it in the last 11 years... at least on a very serious leve... Read more
Frustrated Ick
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      5 comments

I am SO down today. Ironic, I know, that my last blog was about finding your own happiness, and today, I can't seem to pull myself off the floor. Hormones are to blame, I think, because there's not *one* thing that's bothering me, it's ju... Read more
Don't Worry, Be Happy
Thursday, May 27, 2010      2 comments

I’ve been thinking a lot about happiness lately. What is it? Is it a cause and effect, or is it something more? I remember when I was still married to RB, and I told him I wasn’t happy in Lake Jackson, that I wanted to move back t... Read more
Goal Mojo
Monday, May 24, 2010      0 comments

I was sick most of last week, which hindered my focus on doing all the little things that I needed to for my first week's challenges (Biggest Loser Challenge - Orange Crushers!!) and even just basic tracking and exercise was impossible some days... Read more
Setbacks defy physics!

I hate it when this happens. I reached a goal on Thursday, and surpassed it by 2 lbs as of Saturday morning! Hooray! Only now, I am UP 4.5 lbs! Booooooooo. I'm not going to freak out about it. I know some of it is water, ... Read more

Well, FINALLY! Jeezus H, FINALLY, I have hit my mini-goal! For the first time since I joined Spark a year ago, I have hit my mini-goal! Hurrah! Over the last year, I have come within a pound or two, but never quite made it! My ... Read more
Why don't I feel BETTER??
Wednesday, April 21, 2010      5 comments

I have been eating well for about 3 weeks now... not that there hasn't been a slip or two, but overall, my diet has been healthy and organic. It is not difficult to stay with... If I have a craving - last week it was brownies - I get wha... Read more
Inner Critic - Silenced!
Thursday, March 11, 2010      2 comments

I just wanted to do a little follow-up from yesterday's blog. I am not miraculously cured or anything, but I do feel like I had a breakthrough yesterday. I pinpointed some of my fears, and then found that article about silencing your i... Read more
Same Place, Different Day
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      5 comments

Why do I keep coming to the same effing place? Lose and gain the same 10 lbs over and over again. Start. Stop. Start. Stop. Start. I am no better off than I was a year ago... except that it gets easier to restart every time. I have... Read more
