Goals, goals, goals!
Ok, so it's been a while since I've written out any specific goals for myself. I've managed to stay off the scale (only because it's in hiding in my mom's guest bathroom), which is a total miracle. I BOMBED during my vacation a couple weeks ag... Read more
The breakup of a longtime relationship.
Before anyone gets too worried, the breakup to which I'm referring is the one I had this weekend with my scale!
I woke up yesterday morning and the first thing I wanted to do was get on the scale...after eating sodium-laden Chinese the ni... Read more
Even though I'm focusing on weekly goals, I just realized that I have some significant dates this summer that I can use as mini-goal dates. In the past, I would place expectations on myself that were barely attainable. When I lost weight the f... Read more
Well, I'm actually not hating this week! I've been trying to stay positive, even though I have to deal with that obnoxious 23-year old student again tomorrow LOL. I'm just going to keep my head down and do my work the best of my ability. I th... Read more
Well, last week was a b!tch. We had a death in the family and were constantly on the run. You all know what that means...horrible food choices. I was so physically and emotionally spent that I honestly didn't care about making healthy choices... Read more
The paranoid struggles of a fat girl.
Ugh! So, I may have mentioned that I'm doing an internship for grad school. After I was approved for the internship, the counselor I'm working with took on another student who only comes in once/week (I'm here the other four days). Today is t... Read more
After taking some time off from Spark to try Weight Watchers, I'm back! I liked Weight Watchers just fine but I think what's best for *me* is good, old fashioned calorie counting. I know tons of people who have had success on WW, but it just d... Read more
Crazy self-sabotaging realization!
So, I'm sitting on the couch relaxing after a day full of school work. I'm eating healthy and tracking all of my food. I'm excited for my afternoon workout with my husband. Everything is good. A thought skitters across my consciousness..."Ye... Read more

Results of my scale experiment
I LOVE not getting on the scale! I stayed off the scale in December and, despite some very bad eating during the holidays and my birthday, lost 10 lbs and a total of 12 inches!!! My hypothesis that I would be able to focus on clean eating and ... Read more
The liberation of the scale!
I hid the scale and decided to only weigh-in monthly. After daily (or more) obsessive weigh-ins, which inevitably led disappointment, frustration and cursing, I made the decision to STOP! It's been 5 days, and I feel this overwhelming sense of... Read more
