A year, three months since I last blogged

Monday, January 19, 2015      3 comments

A year, three months and 12 days to be exact. Last time I posted, I was depressed because I wanted to be pregnant. Well, guess what, a month later I was pregnant. And on 8/8/14 I had my son, my second child. He is now a pretty awesome... Read more

You haven't heard from me in a while because I've been in a bad place in my eating and feelings in the last few weeks. I haven't been feeling well in general. I just feel kind of off. I am a little bit depressed and have been for a while. I... Read more

Small victories

Thursday, September 12, 2013      1 comments

So ... I am back. I am finally feeling better and back in control. It was hard this time but I know my mind is in the right place now and this means so much to me. For years I went through that circle of losing weight, staying that weight for a ... Read more

Shifting the focus

Wednesday, September 04, 2013      0 comments

These last few months have been a bit of a blur. Don't get me wrong. It was a lovely summer - mostly because for the first time since I was, maybe 12 years old, I wasn't afraid to wear a bathing suit in public, which meant lots of swimming and b... Read more

Very personal: don't read if you are scared of "lady issues"

Oh man, I haven't written in a while ... I've been taking it easy. Trying to conceive is still the no 1 thing on my mind. So since my last blog entry, I've actually increased my calories and have gone easier on the exercise. I still exercis... Read more

My daughter has her weekly play date every Friday morning. We were 5 moms and 6 kids last Friday. Friday night my daughter had a runny nose. Saturday she started to get cranky. Sunday was spent in my lap, feverish and coughing a lot. I starte... Read more

Uncharted territory

Saturday, July 20, 2013      3 comments

When I first started to lose weight, a bit more than a year ago, I had a definite goal: get back to my lowest weight ever. My lowest (grown up) weight ever was 265lbs. I was about a size 18/20 at that weight. If you look at my blog entries fro... Read more

"Have you lost weight? Like, a LOT of weight?"

Tuesday, July 16, 2013      3 comments

It's been more than a year that I changed my eating and added exercise to my life. I remember Fall of last year. I felt so thin! I was still over 300lbs but I felt fit and so much smaller. Nobody noticed. I had lost around 50lbs already by then ... Read more

A healthy diet on a budget

Wednesday, July 10, 2013      2 comments

I am not good at saving money. It's strange because I grew up very poor and until my husband (back then, still my boyfriend) and I moved in, I lived paycheck to paycheck but I made it work. At my poorest my monthly budget to spend on anything fr... Read more

Juicing and fertility

Tuesday, July 09, 2013      1 comments

The holidays were hard. Were they hard for you too? They didn't have to be as hard as I made them for myself but something clicked. Last week was just not a good week for me. Mood swings and intense hunger. It all started (got triggered?) by me ... Read more

So I had been doing so well. I added cycling to my exercise and I love it so much (I used to cycle everywhere before I had my daughter). I still kept my normal workout routine which meant there were a few days last week when I actually burned mo... Read more

Cycling is LIFE!

Friday, June 28, 2013      2 comments

I finally got my bike fixed yesterday. It's been in storage for about a year, which means, last time I rode it, I was about 80lbs heavier. Let me tell you, riding a bike when you are in good shape and weigh 80lbs less is a lot easier. In fact... Read more

Oven-baked buttermilk chicken recipe

I peed a lot yesterday and today I am 2lbs lighter. That would be awesome if it wouldn't mean that I am now just at the same weight that I have been fighting at for the past week. Despite heavy workouts and sticking to my plant-based, under-1650... Read more

I know it's just a number but ...

So, I gained two pounds last night. And I know y'all are going to tell me that it's just water weight and I know you guys must be right because I have been sticking to 1650 calories the last few days and I did some great workouts and almost ever... Read more

Why the juice cleanse wasn't a good idea for me

Tuesday, June 25, 2013      3 comments

It's been almost two weeks since my juice cleanse ended. And I am back at 265lbs. That's 6lbs above my "end of the juice cleanse" weight. That's 2lbs above my "Before the juice cleanse weight". So you could say, this juice cleanse has not been a... Read more
