Not dwelling on What Could Be

Wednesday, November 19, 2014      11 comments

This morning, my scale says 157.4 lbs. Y'all, I haven't seen a number lower than 158 since June 6th. I am ecstatic. Over the moon. I am SO CLOSE to being back at that 100 lbs lost line and a healthy BMI. Sure, a month ago, when I finished m... Read more

Probable Bad News

Tuesday, November 11, 2014      14 comments

So things haven't been great for me since May. My family has moved across the country to a place I despise, a place where I know no one. My marriage is completely in the toilet, and my kids are in chaos because of it. My body image issues have f... Read more

Fun, exciting news!

Every year in November, I participate in National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. I've been doing this since 2009 and love the event. This year, however, with all the stress and depression, I decided last minute to drop from the program. I've... Read more

Get Thin, Get Strong

Wednesday, November 05, 2014      8 comments

For some people, these are simultaneous goals, two things they can do at the same time. There are all sorts of fantastic programs out there for heavy lifting and fat loss. Some of the people I admire and trust most use and/or designed these prog... Read more

It's been a long time since I felt a strong sense of community here on Spark, outside a small particular set of Sparkfriends. This feeling of disconnect started right around the time that I started getting featured as a success story (early 2012... Read more

Paleo Convert

Saturday, October 25, 2014      8 comments

So. I used to be very anti-paleo, and very skeptical about the whole thing. That skepticism was compounded when I attempted Whole30 back in May, an attempt which led to a 7-lb gain in nine days, my cholesterol shooting through the roof, a lethar... Read more

Whole28 - Week 4 - Final Results

Saturday, October 18, 2014      13 comments

Well, the scale barely moved this week, though this was expected. I'm at 158.4 lbs, for a 1.2-lb loss in Week 4 (plus 1.5 further inches lost). The stall-out, I know, is a combination of two things. First, it's TOM week and I'm right in the midd... Read more

Whole28 - Week 3

Saturday, October 11, 2014      10 comments

This was a very bad week with very bad home things. There was one day I barely ate. I don't have the strength to say more. It's just been a very stressful, awful week. However, adding back exercise seemed to help get the scale moving again,... Read more

Sunday, October 05, 2014      7 comments

I want to say something re: yesterday's blog. Despite what it may have sounded like, and despite what people seemed to think, I do know that 1.4 lbs lost last week is a good thing, and that I've had really good results with this program so far. ... Read more

Whole28 - Week 2 - Results

Saturday, October 04, 2014      7 comments

Well, let me just start by saying this week hasn't been nearly as spectacular as Week 1. Actually, a good chunk of the week has been very frustrating. This is scale-frustration, and part of that frustration is uncontrollable (can't keep losing a... Read more

Whole28 - Week 1 - Meals

Monday, September 29, 2014      11 comments

Two days ago, I talked about my plan. Yesterday, I gave y'all my week 1 results. Today, I will discuss my individual days for Week 1, especially meals. Picture day! Day 1 - 170.0 lbs (so *technically* this is my starting weight, because I w... Read more
