Things that must change.

Wednesday, June 26, 2013      0 comments

I will NOT: *Drink anything other than water (unless I am having milk with cereal). *Have more than two servings of sweets per day (so whatever the recommended serving size is). *Be lazy during work anymore! *Make excuses to NOT be activ... Read more

Not better.

I just don't even. I was doing fairly well on my previous regimine - but then again it has been nearly a year since I last posted. I ended up giving up the phentermine after several months, not only because it was an extra expense at the ti... Read more

Is this an improvement?

I went to see a nurse practitioner in Canton, MO the other day (that's about 20 minutes away, for those of you who are not familiar with the area). She and I discussed my diet and exercise habits, and the fact that despite my best efforts I'm no... Read more

It is nearly midnight. As I wander about the house, preparing for a too-early morning, my legs wobble and nearly give out on me - but this is to be expected. Tomorrow, they will be worse. Much worse. But their reaction tonight does not surp... Read more

I was bad today.

Thursday, May 31, 2012      0 comments

I expect to hear myself saying those words a lot throughout my journey; they're true, as for lunch I had a terrible amount of pasta and a breadstick and a muffin I know has more calories than I probably want to acknowledge, all of which I'm not ... Read more

The difference a day makes

Tuesday, March 20, 2012      1 comments

A lot can happen in a minute. Even more can happen in an hour - and oh, imagine what can happen in a day! People enter and leave this existence, jobs are gained and lost, education is gathered and we all grow and change. Sometimes we make choice... Read more

Starting from scratch

Wednesday, March 07, 2012      0 comments

Not gonna lie: It's a huge pain in the ass. Literally and figuratively. My backside may not necessarily hurt tonight, but I expect it to tomorrow. Maybe not even so much my backside, but my everything else - likely my abs especially. Tonigh... Read more

Back on the bandwagon

Tuesday, March 06, 2012      0 comments

It's an easy thing to fall off of. The wagon tends to move rather quickly once you're on it, and for a while you're struggling to stay on, to learn to balance and keep a tight hold on the reigns. It feels massively overwhelming at first, and whi... Read more

On 9/11

Sunday, September 11, 2011      0 comments

They don't teach you how to cope with tragedy in school. On September 11, 2001 I was sitting in my Spanish class, learning how to conjugate some verb that has been long since forgotten. I had just begun high school, I was a sophomore, and q... Read more

How times change

Monday, July 18, 2011      1 comments

Things have changed tenfold since I last posted; we are in the midst of moving AGAIN, out of our rented home that we adore and in with my mother because we can simply no longer afford to live on our own right now. It's an emotional journey, as i... Read more

When is enough, enough?

Sunday, March 27, 2011      4 comments

Is it when you become so overweight that you are no longer able to shop at local stores (mom and pop or big-box) to buy clothing? Is it when you tell someone your weight in confidence and their first reaction is a wide-eyed stare? Perhaps it's w... Read more

Nothing to do with weightloss

Thursday, December 30, 2010      1 comments

It might seem a little odd, out of place, or even downright inappropriate to deviate from the common theme of overall health and weight loss when I've focused so heavily on it before, but I feel this is necessary. Part of being healthy, after al... Read more

Holidays: Not About "Me" But They Should Be!

Monday, November 29, 2010      4 comments

Ah, the holiday season has begun. Thanksgiving is over and for the majority of us who celebrate the major winter holidays, that means starting to put out decorations and preparing for big feasts and having lots of family over. It's the one time ... Read more

Slow and Steady Wins the Race!

Wednesday, November 24, 2010      2 comments

You'll have to excuse me if I jump around today; I've been doing some serious cleaning in preparation for having family over for Thanksgiving tomorrow (and, let's face it, it's something we all have to do eventually: cleaning MUST be done). I st... Read more

Myths of Fatness

Tuesday, November 16, 2010      7 comments

There are plenty of myths about the so-called "skinny minnies" of society - that they can eat anything they want, never have to work out, don't have to strive to keep their figures - but I've found there are just as many perhaps more scathing my... Read more
