Thursday, June 27, 2013      3 comments

I set a goal to work out 6 days a week until I reach my goal weight. I joined 24 hour fitness and am doing very well. I do at least 1 hour of aerobics every day and 15 minutes of weights every other day, then I reward myself by sitting in the ... Read more

At least once or twice a week at work, a co-worker, boss or vendor brings treats...donuts, cake, cupcakes, cookies and so on. They are being nice, trying to get stuff out of their house, like to bake or trying to get our business. It is a grea... Read more

There have been two times in my adult life where I ate healthy and exercised regularly. Once for 2 years and another time for 6 months. Various things derailed me and I would gain weight and then not go back to the healthy way. Somehow I alwa... Read more

I broke my butt! Well, technically I fractured my tailbone. It was really easy to do but I don't recommend it. My foot slipped on a stair and wham, bam, thank you m'am, down I went to land with a great deal of force on my tailbone. It didn't... Read more

Well, I did fantastic all day. I made good food choices and exercised and drank lots of herbal tea and water. Then, I was tired but couldn't fall asleep and I got into a candy stash leftover from Christmas. :( I don't think I can throw it aw... Read more

First, a confession - I've never seen Cabaret. But I've heard the song "Maybe This Time" in various places - tv shows, radio, etc. and though it was not written for this purpose, I feel it's a good fit for how I'm feeling right now. Hopeful th... Read more
Inspired by Biggest Loser
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      5 comments

I like watching the Biggest Loser. It really does make me feel inspired. Most of the time it is the fact that contestants lose such huge amounts and I think wow, it's possible if you really work and devote yourself to the change. I know some ... Read more
Overworked stress reaction...
Tuesday, September 18, 2012      0 comments

I've had so many stressors lately that my stress reaction is worn out. I feel a little dazed, numb. Something that would normally send me into a anxious stressed out panic is now getting barely any reaction. Bizarre. I will have to try to ho... Read more

I feel like I may be out of the woods with my depression. I identified the source of some of my pain and realize that I don't want the ex having that kind of control of my emotions and I don't deserve to be in this emotional turmoil. Because o... Read more
Haven't gotten on track yet
Monday, February 06, 2012      4 comments

I have been so depressed over the last month. I have cried more in the last month than in the 12 months before that. I feel completely out of control and frustrated. I have gained back almost all the weight I'd lost last year. I tell myself ... Read more

Well, I am not happy about dropping out, so to speak. I just had a series of unfortunate events and my old habits of eating to feel better/dull the pain resurfaced. (Unfortunately the good feelings never lasted past the last bite). So, I am t... Read more
Coming out of the fog of pain
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      1 comments

I survived the abscessed tooth. Feel like I've been to hell and back. There were many times I was pacing and praying and begging God to stop the pain. It was terrible and I have a very low threshold for pain. My pain tolerance is extremely l... Read more

Tuesday, May 24, 2011      5 comments

I realize that not eating is the worst way to lose weight but right now I don't have a choice. My tooth hurts so bad that the whole side of my face hurts from my neck to my temple and everything in between. The pain is unrelenting and I feel l... Read more
