  • C25K Week 1 done and random thoughts

    7/25/2016 10:10:14 AM, by ADF1981

    Saturday I completed week 1 of C25K. Today I will start week 2 and I am both excited and nervous. So far, so good. I have noticed some knee pain, but no more than usual like sometimes after leg day. Stretching really helps and my body tells on me when I skip it. Which leads to some stretching s... Read more

  • How I Am Eliminating 'EXCESS Weight"

    7/23/2016 1:03:30 PM, by _RAMONA

    ... I love this picture because when my Mr. first glanced at it 8 years ago, he demanded to know who took it, LOL! It really does look like me, and represents how I have felt much of this journey. Rarely do I post several blogs in such quick succession, but since yesterday's entry seve... Read more

  • What I Wish Someone Had Told Me About Losing a Lot of Weight

    7/23/2016 1:16:40 AM, by _RAMONA

    I read an article today, and I've come to a funny realization.... I think I had to become an unhappy, frighteningly unhealthy 'fat' person in order to learn, once and for all, how be a deeply happy and fulfilled... what? A deeply happy and fulfilled 'thin' person? A deeply h... Read more

  • Focus, food, and goals

    7/21/2016 10:40:02 AM, by ADF1981

    The closer we get to August the more I realize that I am ready to get back on a stricter schedule. Don't get me wrong. I have been on a routine for the most part this summer. The timing of everything is a little more relaxed, but overall it's been the same. This morning I woke up around 5am and ... Read more

  • Delayed restart, stress, and cardio

    7/19/2016 11:35:37 AM, by ADF1981

    So, I blogged about this fantastical restart of sorts and that it was time to get serious. I mentioned my goals of serious tracking and more cardio. And, I don't think I worked on any of it until today. I haven't been "off track". My eating has been going really well even though it's more intuit... Read more

  • Are you accidentally dieting?

    7/18/2016 12:03:33 PM, by _RAMONA

    From my inbox today... and too good to not share: "Treats" don't make us "fall off the wagon." Guilt and shame do. Happy Monday! (Ugh. Monday.) I've been thinking about DIETING a lot lately. Specifically, dieting in the Paleo/Primal/Real Food/Whateveryouca... Read more

  • Honesty is the best policy

    7/17/2016 10:05:16 AM, by SWEETNSKINNY

    Its been a LONG time! I'm here because I need to start being accountable to myself. I looked in the mirror yesterday, and I truly did not recognize myself. I am at the highest weight I think ive ever been (well at least that i've seen on the scale). I ONLY wear stretchy pants, and even some of ... Read more

  • Quote for Today 7/9/2016

    7/9/2016 9:22:02 AM, by 1DAY-ATA-TIME

    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you ... Read more

    Yesterday I went 2 my back specialist & got weighed. I'm back up 2 181lbs from 175lbs. My doc was mad, he said my weight should've been ⬇2 170lbs & I shouldn't be gaining weight. I asked if I should go 2 a nutritionist & he said no just follow what he told me 2 eat & watch my portions. Good day g... Read more

    7/7/2016 1:28:14 PM, by 1DAY-ATA-TIME

    A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside Washington, DC. Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?" "Terrorists have kidnapped the entire US Congress, and they're asking for a $100 million d... Read more

    7/7/2016 11:30:29 AM, by ADF1981

    Hello spark friends! It's been a minute. I've been wanting to blog for a few days now, but someone usually beats me to the computer. My lack of blogging has been mostly because of school being out for summer, vacation, etc. I've been on track for the most part, but not in the same sense as befor... Read more

    Just because someone doesn't look like your ideal of what a woman should look like doesn't give you the right to criticize! Just because a person chooses a diet that doesn't work for you doesn't mean you have the right to criticize or say it doesn't work. Because low carb diet with me? You don't hav... Read more

  • It's not about just looking good in a little black dress anymore

    6/28/2016 7:16:20 AM, by G.I.JANE

    Picture of me last July. When I was in my twenties I would have done just about anything to lose weight. I found that low carb diet had work for me. But I still had the poor eating habits of a picky child. We would only eat certain foods. I did a lot of red meat hamburgers , hot dogs, heck the ... Read more
