Starting a New Journey: The path to bariatric surgery (for reasons other than weight loss)
Yesterday, I had my consultation with a bariatric surgeon. While I have gained back all the weight I lost since 2012, the purpose of having surgery is not for weight loss; it is because my GERD is uncontrollable without proton pump inhibitors, w... Read more
February 2015 Goals
I'm taking a cue from DEBADEAU and deciding to start setting monthly goals to see if that will keep me on track. The wedding is less than 2 months now, and I'd really like my dress to fit as well as it can. But mostly, I just want to *feel* bett... Read more
Okay, today was Accountability Day in a group I'm in, and I'm sharing it far and wide (bad choice of words?) so that I keep seeing it as a reminder!
I wasn't going to weigh-in, but I need to know where I am, and what I need to overcome. I g... Read more
Not as bad as I feared.
Welp, I am up 2.4 pounds since I last weighed in on December 19. BUT, I've had interesting measurement changes. Lost a half an inch from my hips, lost a half an inch from my waist. I GAINED a half an inch on my thigh, and a half an inch on my ca... Read more
Weigh-In Day: Finally under 150!!!
It's been a while since I've posted an update. My weight has been stable over the past few months. Slight ups and down, with an overall slow trend down. Today's weigh-in was note-worthy though!
Today's weigh-in showed a loss of 0.6 pounds, ... Read more

Finally, a weigh-in worth sharing.
I'd been at a damned plateau for 11 weeks. Stayed within a 2 pound range. Yes, I've been strength training, muscle weighs more than fat, blah blah...but it's still frustrating!
However, weigh-in today showed I have shed 2.4 pounds this week... Read more
Statement of Accountability
My statement of accountability for this past weekend: I blew my diet big time. I expected I would, as it was my future brother-in-law's wedding and a time for celebration. But I went way over on food. Over-splurged, if you will. I enjoyed it, an... Read more
I haven't made an entry in a while, even though there has been changes in weight and such. Just been so busy with medical issues I haven't focused on blogging.
Trying, though, to keep things in perspective since I seem to be at another damn... Read more
Wow, been a long time since I've posted. Very busy time musically, and I've been having trouble with my new MS medication, so I've been lax on posting regularly. But today's worth posting about.
WOOHOO! I almost can't believe it, but:

Thoughts on being in ONEderland (254 days now!)
I can't believe how long I've been in ONEderland now. I hit it on August 9 of last year, and I haven't gone back above 200 since. Another friend of mine counts the number of days she's been in ONEderland. I haven't done that yet. But I just did,... Read more
Today's weigh-in showed a decrease of 2.2 pounds for a total of 68.2 pounds released since 3/1/12. I think my forced portion control experiment is working. I needed the reminder, because I think I was starting to slip on that. So I'm doing the S... Read more
So. Yesterday for weigh-in, I felt bloated and icky but did my weigh-in anyway. I felt different today and decided to get on the scale. I am so glad I did. Not counting yesterday's weigh-in, I have shed 2.6 pounds since March 14. 66.6 pounds rel... Read more
