Turns out hard work does pay off.
I am down almost 4lbs since Sunday, just by continuing to eat under my calorie goal and working out whenever I can. My daughter is home from preschool all week due to Spring break (on top of last week, when... Read more
Oh scale. Why are you so cruel?
I have followed my new eating plan, cut out sugar, cut down on carbs, stayed in my calorie goals, worked out 4-5 times a week for a couple of weeks now and noticed how my clothes fit better, I felt smaller.
But I didn't have a scale to confir... Read more
First week, done
Four times I made it to the gym last week, one of the non-gym days I went on a 3 mile walk. I'm pretty proud of myself. I also tracked my food every day since last Wednesday and stayed under my calorie goal.
I'm still trying to figure things o... Read more
The Hunger Fix
Things are looking up! It's Spring and I finally had enough of only fitting into one pair of jeans.
I've also finally decided to confront my food addiction. I completely lost control over my eating the last few months and it's made me depr... Read more
A year, three months since I last blogged
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
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
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
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?"
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
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
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
