As some of you noticed on my status update yesterday, Tuesday was not a fabulous day for me. I don't have a real reason, it was cloudy and rainy and I guess it just got to me. I was "PMS-ey". And I was STARVING, all day. I didn't even track ... Read more

So this week, I started the 5K your way - walking program...thingie. ;o) My first day was a 15 minute walk. I was SO disappointed about how HARD walking for 15 minutes had become, that I got really, really down on myself afterwards. Every on... Read more

So...I made it through day two. Huh! I made it through chocolate cravings, and an intense desire for a snack. I counted out exactly 38 peanuts and I journaled them. I even managed to avoid a major pitfall - icees. I love icees. For those o... Read more

Entry from 7/10/2011 - Well, anyway, today is day one of my return to weight loss. I can't lie - I'm pretty bummed to be here. Last time I was on this site, was 2008 or so. I'd lost 140lbs. I felt SO good about myself, my body, my health.... Read more
