I was going through photos from my 2013 Turkey trip last night. I weighed about 15-20 pounds less in the photos and though I'm fairly happy with my current appearance, there's no denying I look better in those Turkey photos. I had just lost 70... Read more

Long time no see! October Goals.

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      9 comments

Wow! It has been over a month since I last blogged. As usual, it is a bad sign when I fall totally silent. After successfully maintaining my weight for about six months, I had a not so good September and found myself six pounds above the rang... Read more

Good times!

August has been great so far. Outside Lands was amazing -- one of the best years yet with incredible performances by Mumford and Sons, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John and more! We ended up scoring VIP passes for Elton John and spent the whole... Read more

July Lessons, August Goals

Monday, August 03, 2015      3 comments

August marks the beginning of the end of summer. It has been a truly great summer. But I allowed myself to get too busy, celebratory and distracted towards the end of June. July was similarly unfocused. Although August will be starting with ... Read more

Yesterday was my first strength training class since I injured my back in May and guess what? I'm sore in all the right ways! Like, "it's been awhile" sore and not "I may have really hurt myself sore." Progress, people! I just did a fun ... Read more

The Lord works in mysterious ways

Wednesday, July 22, 2015      2 comments

A few months ago, I was feeling a bit rudderless on this journey. I felt I'd accomplished much of what I'd set out to do. I'd lost 50+ pounds and largely kept it off since 2013. I had cute clothes. I was physically active. I ate healthy foo... Read more

Over a month!

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      3 comments

Usually, it's a pretty bad sign if I go over a month without blogging! I'll be honest, things haven't been great. But admittedly they could also be a lot worse. Of the 18 pounds I've lost in 2015, I've gained 6 back since my back injury i... Read more

Day 33 -- What next?

Thursday, June 11, 2015      6 comments

I've actually had a lot on my mind lately with regards to what, exactly, I am trying to accomplish with my weight loss goals. Basically, what is my "why?" I'm finding that my "why" is really abstract these days. I want to maintain my h... Read more

Day 24 -- Great news!!

Tuesday, June 02, 2015      3 comments

Great news! I went to my dance class last night, stood in the back row and took it REALLY EASY. This morning, my back is a little sore but I did not reinjure myself like last time -- yay!!! I plan to rest it today and then take another cl... Read more

Here were my goals for May: 1) Track every bite emoticon 2) Track overeating/binge episodes with an eye to... Read more

Day 21 -- Crafting My Own Solution

Saturday, May 30, 2015      4 comments

I'm finally starting to get a peek at what a balanced lifestyle might look like. Like, a lot of women, I've been dieting almost my entire life. I've spent more time theoretically on diets than off of them. I've had varying degrees of succ... Read more

Day 20 -- Okay

Friday, May 29, 2015      5 comments

I experienced a gain this week. I was prepared for this because in the last two weeks I have exceeded my calorie goal by a significant margin 5 times. Three of those times I significantly exceeded my TDEE. And, though I managed to get back on... Read more

Day 19 -- "If you can lift a fork, you can lose weight."

Thursday, May 28, 2015      4 comments

Even though my eating was off track for most of last week, there were a few interesting developments. First of all, I had a number of restaurant meals where I exercised willpower, control and mindful eating. I had dim sum with my siste... Read more

Day 18 -- Moving forward

Wednesday, May 27, 2015      5 comments

Things are going okay. I'm a bit bummed about my back but trying not to let it get me down. I've been fortunate enough to avoid injury up to this point so this is my first time dealing with it. I realize I can't just jump back into it full th... Read more

Day 9 -- NSV's

Monday, May 18, 2015      3 comments

I was looking back through my old blogs. I found one on July 9, 2014 that said I wanted to achieve the following non-scale victories: 1) No longer feeling pain in my foot 2) Fitting comfortably into my new school boy blazer 3) Fittin... Read more
