A week or so ago, I finally got to the 5 minutes of running point. Eeee! I'm great at walking at a 3.5 to 3.7 pace, but beyond that -- ugh. So I broke through that wall last week and have been trying to maintain at least 5 minutes of running dur... Read more

New outlook.

First off -- I didn't weigh myself today. I'm going to aim to NOT get on the scale every day. Seems that became a pretty serious habit of mine for awhile. And, unlike some people, I was okay with ONLY maintaining. But any day I'd find myself a p... Read more

okay, I'm really trying. I mean, I haven't been eating right and I certainly haven't been exercising as much as I should. But I am walking as much as possible and am even incorporating extra steps in wherever I can. I'm drinking loads of w... Read more

quite eye-opening to get on the scale this morning and see I've gained again. Guess I better get my head back in the game. I've been disconnected from so many facets of my life in the last couple months -- if I'm being perfectly honest, I haven'... Read more

I bought a few books at Barnes and Noble recently. 101 Ways to Stress-Free Living Your Body, Your Gym and a fitness and nutrition journal. I'd previously bought the Spark book too. I'm really making an intelligent, mental effort to... Read more

I find myself struggling, friends. I just don't know how to stay committed to Spark anymore. I want so badly to continue losing weight and being successful with my journey to 180lbs, but I've clearly hit a plateau. I've been here, at anywhere be... Read more

I've been weighing in for the last four days and I've already dropped three pounds. I've done an about-face when it comes to my nutrition, but I still need to get back to exercising. I can't afford to renew my gym membership, so I'm trying... Read more

I didn't forget again. I've actually been doing well since I wrote. I'm back to being aware of what I'm eating and how much, and I've even begun fitting work-outs into my work-days again. Used to be so easy when I had so much down time at work, ... Read more

I'm kind of back. I decided in the shower this morning that I really, REALLY want to reach my goal weight. I'm just not satisfied with where I've settled. Granted, I'm still down from where I was when I started, but I'm not to my goal weigh... Read more

My big sister, Susan.

Monday, February 01, 2010      12 comments

As many of you know, the reason I started this journey is partially because my sister has been in need of a kidney transplant and I was in line to donate, supposing I was healthy enough. Now, to fill you in without getting too into Susan's... Read more

Today at noon I have plans to meet my entire family at Chili's to celebrate my birthday. I'm pretty excited, but it's the first test of whether I can control my food intake still. I know Chili's has some healthier options, so I should be fine. I... Read more
