Yesterday I told my husband my goal of doing a 1/2 marathon in early October and asked him if he wanted to do it with me. He thought I was crazy! He said don't you know how long that will take to do? Really? That's the kind of support he sho... Read more
1/2 Marathon

Can't believe I'm going to say this, but I'm going to sign for my first half marathon. It is in October. I'm scared, but at the same time I love having this goal to work for. I only need to increase my stamina by 10 miles! Easy right? Just ... Read more
Proud Moment

I have changed so much in the last year. Kids and husband are out of town. Back in the old days, I would take advantage of being able to eat whatever I wanted. I could go to the fast food places that my kids didn't want to eat at. I would ha... Read more

Fantastic doctor visit

I had the best doctor visit today! I never thought I would say that. The last regular visit I had was in late October. I went off blood pressure pills completely. I had to get put back on them in mid January because it was too high again. ... Read more

Happy Easter

I'm going to have to work hard to be conscious of what I eat today. Easter used to be filled with ham, deviled eggs, mac and cheese and 7 layer salad. We are going to lunch at my inlaws and are having my family at our house for dinner. I'm go... Read more

This weight loss journey has brought me so much more than I expected. My whole outlook on things has changed. I used to be a very emotional eater. I still have my days where I want to eat my feelings but I have gotten so much better at not do... Read more
Right Direction

For the last 2 months my weight has stayed within the same 3 pounds. I'm finally seeing a difference. My weight is going down and I've noticed that my arms don't sag as much. I'm a little intimidated (ok very intimidated) to do the free... Read more
I've come a long way baby!
Thursday, March 19, 2015      6 comments

I started my journey mid May of last year. I have lost 75 lbs since then. I would love to be at a 100lb loss at my year point but I don’t think that is a realistic goal, which is ok. I’m still making progress. I have come such a long w... Read more
