Two days of disgusting binging
I wouldn't typically call myself a stress eater. However, the last two days, I have stuffed myself with everything I can get my hands on because my entire life feels like it's crashing down around me. I don't know why I did it. It didn't make... Read more
Let's be honest. Losing weight and getting healthy is no easy task. Especially when one has not had healthy eating habits for the majority of their life. Heck, that's why we're all here, right? Because we need help and support and because th... Read more
Just to gloat a little
I am writing this blog to simply say that I am officially wearing the smallest pair of jeans that I own and they look FABULOUS :) Size 12 Express jeans that I bought 3 years ago and haven't been able to wear in 2 years. I pull them out every o... Read more
Falling apart at 33
I'm 33 years old. And I'm falling apart physically. I have arthritis in my lower back. Along with a herniated disc that causes flare ups of severe sciatica. I have high blood pressure. How is all this possible?
Yesterday I got injectio... Read more
Learning to cope
Well, it's been a while since I've been active on here. Of course, I know that nothing changes when I'm not committed to myself, but still, I find every excuse under the sun. I'm going to try to be more active. And I'm going to try and care m... Read more
On Tuesday, I was voted the "Done Girl of the Day" in the Done Being the Fat Girl group. What an amazing group of supportive women! It reminded me that I can and will continue my journey to be healthier.
I then realized that I haven't bee... Read more
One Step Back, Two Steps Forward
The past week was an interesting one. I had my birthday on Thursday, so of course there was a lot of eating out and not tracking my food. I also had some depression set in, which doesn't ever bode well for my motivation. Therefore, I didn't g... Read more
Today, SparkCoach wants me to blog about my workout excuses. There are really just a couple that I use.
1 - I am depressed and I would rather curl up in my bed and hide from the world.
2 - I am too tired.
That's it. Those are the t... Read more
Oh the times, they are a changin' (and so am I!)
Today's SparkCoach assignment is to blog about the changes that I'm seeing other than the scale. This is only week 3 of my latest attempt to be consistent, and while I'm doing well (4lbs GONE), I am noticing more important changes than just wha... Read more
I am so bad with my eating on the weekends. I think that, for now, I'm going to allow my Sundays to be "cheat" days. I went over my calories today (not by much), but I at very little that was actually healthy. I did still go to the gym this m... Read more
Didn't give up, but....
So, you know how sometimes life gets in the way? Anyone who has ever been a parent will understand this especially. Yesterday, life got in the way. In a good way but still.
My 3 year old was just super extra clingy yesterday, and I didn'... Read more
Committed for another day
Yesterday I committed to myself. I went to the gym and did my first day of the 5k rookie running program. Today, I'm making another commitment.
Today, I'm committing to go to the gym again. I have it on my calendar, and I'm not going t... Read more
Today I won't give up on myself
Today I am not going to give up on myself. Yes, I am busy. Yes, there are a million things that I could be doing at any given moment. But, I am just as worthy of time and attention as are all the other things in my life.
Today, I will ... Read more

It's a binge kind of weekend
I think this weekend has become the culmination of all my failed efforts over the summer. I don't know what I ate last night, but I ate pretty much everything that I saw, and a whole lot of it. I've been paying for it all day. After a week of... Read more
