My Legs are Longer!
Tuesday, February 11, 2014      7 comments

I got out of the shower the other day and caught a glance of myself in the mirror -- and it looked like my legs were longer. Yes. They're definitely longer. And then I realized. My belly fat is no longer hanging so low that it's covering the... Read more

I am not doing super-great on the Winter 5% Challenge. I'm sitting at my desk too much and eating junk. BUT I have made some changes in the past year that have "stuck" and I want to note them and celebrate them and reassure myself that I am c... Read more

Fall Challenge -- Success or Failure?
Saturday, December 07, 2013      4 comments

I weighed in this morning at 210 --exactly where I was 8 weeks ago. I'm disappointed that I didn't lose any weight during the Fall 5% Challenge (but I admit I consistently didn't eat within my calorie limit, so I'm not surprised). I... Read more

Outside My Comfort Zone
Tuesday, December 03, 2013      5 comments

I've never really understood the whole "you need to get out of your comfort zone" admonition. When someone says that to me, I think, "No, I don't want to do that because I DON'T WANT TO DO THAT." But yesterday I went to the Y for another... Read more
