Still Plugging Along
I can't believe I haven't posted a blog entry since May. We officially started TTC in June, and we're on cycle 6. I didn't expect it to take this long, but our nephew is here and he's the cutest thing EVER.
I started doing both OPKs and... Read more

6 Week review
After a great loss 2 weeks ago that put me in the top 100 for the week, I maintained last week (expected after a big loss like that), and gained this week. I kind of really fell off the wagon. I apparently decided that since I was doing so awe... Read more
Time for an update
Well, we managed to close on our house on the 31st. We started moving things that evening, and cleaned most of our stuff out of my mom's house the next day. We kept moving things from the apartment in our cars all the following week. This pas... Read more
NSV in the middle of uncertainty
On Saturday, we were supposed to be closing today. By Monday, that had been moved to tomorrow. However, since we chose a bank that was based in the South, and their mortgage centers have been closed for 2 days due to the massive storm that jus... Read more

Week 2's goals were:
~Do GOYB and GOYBAD on the day scheduled (7/7!)

~5 workout days (out of 7) (Exactly 5)
~5 Servings of freggies... Read more
Working on being consistent with food
I'm kind of surprised that I have actually lost about a pound between last week and this week, even with my dismal workouts. I mean, I only managed about 3 good days of workouts last week. I moved most days, but I didn't meet my goals (see the... Read more

Update to yesterday's blog
Yesterday, I just needed to vent. I know how to lose weight, and I've done it before. This time around, though, I'm dealing with a much smaller apartment and nowhere to really work out. We live out at the edge of the city, so there are very f... Read more
I'm struggling with this whole weight loss thing. I'm back up above my starting weight for the BLC and I ate what should have been 2 meals for dinner last night. We should be closing on our house in 6 weeks, so I'm kind of in a holding pattern... Read more

Plans for change
Holy Cow. I just realized that at a 2 lb per week rate, I could be under 200 by New Year's. I really want to get there. Last night, I realized that the reason why pants don't fit me very well is because I have a size 10 frame and a 20-22 body... Read more
My body has decided that my schedule should shift and I should be going to bed between 9 and 10 and getting up at 6. I'm exhausted every evening by 9 or 10 and I am wide awake at 6. No idea why. So, I still haven't informed my family that my ... Read more

Gah, I've gained weight. It does kind of make it hard to tell when you wear skirts and T-shirts all the time. Anyway, the measurements:
Chest: 34 (happy about this one)
Thigh: 29.5... Read more
