What if you just gave up?
Tuesday, May 17, 2016      10 comments

What if you said, "I'm done with weight loss." What if you stopped summoning the inner strength to say no to every delicious thing you want to eat? What if you just decided that you're ok with being who you are right now, at your size, with yo... Read more

Hey y'all! I've not been on SP much lately... I'm using my FitBit app, mostly. It's been working pretty well for me. I've lost about ten pounds since I started back to school in August. Good news! I started a new job! I got the news about... Read more
Where have I been?
Wednesday, May 06, 2015      10 comments

My last blog was written in January. I seemed so positive about staying on track with eating well and exercise. A lot of things happened that stressed me out and sent me heading for the fridge. I hate that I still don't have this emotional eatin... Read more
In a moderate mindset

Moderation, man. It feels so good. I was so crazy last year. Strict diets, crazy fitness plans, sore muscles, aching knees, and just an overall feeling of fatigue. I hope I don't ever return to that. What's working: 1. Tracking everyth... Read more
Patience, grasshopper.

Patience is what I need. I've been thinking about my pattern of dieting and fitness over the past year and it occurred to me that I've been an absolute idiot. Well, not really an idiot. I've just been really impatient. In January o... Read more

I feel like I've been chipping away at this FOREVER. I see those before/after pics of people who are finally at their goal weight, and I think, "I want that to be me!" I have a GREAT before pic. Like me, at 303 pounds, with scraggly hair, ratty ... Read more

Weight loss challenge
Sunday, October 05, 2014      2 comments

There is a weight loss challenge going on at my work that I joined. We weigh in every Monday. The first weigh-in I was 222, the second I was at 217, and the third weigh-in is tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I'll have about a 2-3 lb loss, so that's goo... Read more
Is it bad that I don't exercise? Advice needed.

This title is misleading. I hit the floor at 5:45 am, and besides for sitting during the drive, sitting for 30 minutes at lunch, and sitting for 30 minutes at dinner... I don't really get to sit until about 8:30 pm when my little girl is in... Read more

School is back in full swing, and so is my stress level. This school year has been hectic already. I am a music teacher, and this year apparently my choir is very popular as I had 73 students sign up! Which is great, but bad. Its an after-school... Read more
Size is not an issue. Fear is.

I can do anything now. I can fit into chairs at any restaurant, feel comfortable riding any amusement ride, go on a plane and easily fit into the seat, and the list goes on and on. So now it's time to do those things that I have been scare... Read more

Busy, busy, busy... It's been a crazy few weeks. It's the end of the school year (woo hoo!) so there's much to be done in very little time. While all the other teachers are cleaning up their rooms and doing "busy work" with their kids, I'... Read more
5 pounds 'til 100 pounds lost and 8 pounds 'til Onederland!
Monday, May 12, 2014      9 comments

I can't believe I'm almost to one of my major goals on Sparkpeople. In five more pounds, I'll have lost 100 pounds. The anticipation of it is probably more exciting than getting there, because I just cannot believe that I have persevered! I a... Read more

I ate too much over Easter weekend! Candy, candy, candy! I am up a pound from my major accomplishment of being down to pre-pregnancy weight. Oh well, I'll get back down again. My weight always goes up around Easter because I can't say no to a... Read more
I've got to track!
Saturday, April 05, 2014      2 comments

I am so bad about tracking my food! I plan my breakfast, lunches and some of my dinners for the week every Sunday, but then there's the unplanned stuff -- the Friday night dinner with my husband, the takeout on Saturday, random snacks I grab wh... Read more
