I had my two year check-up and am still in remission. I'll officially be two year cancer free in July. Part of the check-up included getting weighed, and I only weighed 2lbs more than when I last weighed myself so that is a relief considering ho... Read more

Today I had my protein drink for breakfast (somebody asked what kind on my last blog post - I drink Muscle Milk) and had a blueberry scone from the cafeteria. My antibiotics are making my crazy sick so I HAD to get food in my stomach, but I was ... Read more

It has been almost two months since I last posted. I "fell off the wagon" after starting work again, I was just too tired to cook after work (especially since I had pneumonia for the first few weeks) and my husband refused to cook so we resorted... Read more

I don't know if it is just because I am sick (I can now barely breathe - yesterday I used my emergency inhaler three times, and I've already had to use it once today) but I am losing motivation fast. I initially began the process to lose weight ... Read more
Well Learned Lesson

I have been coming down with something and it smacked me in the face today. Lost my voice to a swollen sore throat, so dizzy I can't walk, and I feel like I can't think. After I finished up some work I decided to order out for dinner rather than... Read more
Those Numbers, Though
Saturday, February 13, 2016      2 comments

I have been struggling to eat enough calories since I changed my diet. Spark, and everywhere else that I look, tells me I should be eating a minimum of 1800 per day. I usually squeak in around 1200-1300, but after 3 weeks it is getting to me. It... Read more
Taking the Win

This morning I weighed myself. I took a deep breath, stepped off the scale, and looked down. In an angry fit over the numbers I stormed out of the bathroom to get dressed ranting to myself: 310?! How, when I have stopped drinking soda?! I starte... Read more

I got the job! After talking it over with hubby and the changes it would mean in our lives since I've been at home for about a year now (which we both love) and especially since I can't drive, we decided I should accept the offer. This is going ... Read more
A Reminder Why

One thing about starting this kind of journey in making big changes in oneself is to keep in mind why you're doing it. I struggle with my motivation. This is the third time I've come back to SparkPeople and I am struggling again to keep it up. ... Read more

I am in the "after" of my interview. It was scheduled for one hour but lasted two. I thought the interview portion went well, but there was also a skills test portion and this is where things went sour. I have a learning disability, which I don'... Read more

and I have a problem with food. It's taken me a long time to accept this; I've spent the last 11 years or so denying it. I don't have a problem with *food* I'm just not *active enough*. Which is true, in part. I'm not active enough. But I also d... Read more
Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels
Saturday, November 22, 2008      0 comments

Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. I really, truly, and deeply hate that phrase. It epitomizes everything that makes us big girls feel bad about ourselves, it is every skinny bitch telling us that we aren't beautiful, that we aren't fa... Read more
