As my diet has changed so have the foods I find myself wanting to eat. I less often find myself wanting sweets, and when I do the "sweet" is usually greek yogurt. I am skipping any sort of dessert most nights because I enjoy a greek yogurt with ... Read more

I hit my first major weight loss goal, 275lbs. It's been nearly 10 years since I've weighed this much. My next little step in my BIG goal is 250lbs. I was reflecting on how my habits have changed recently. I now exercise 5-7 times a week, w... Read more

Things have been going really well for me, which is actually kind of why I stopped blogging. My new job is wonderful. I didn't realize it was so active! I usually walk around 2 miles a day during the regular course of duties - finding resources,... Read more

We have our first snowfall today! Or at least, first in my city. Other parts of the state already had theirs. It's my kittens first ever snowfall and she is mesmerized. My dad came over to help fix our fireplace, so we've got it blazing now with... Read more

I had my day in the hospital on Tuesday - I would have posted yesterday but the tilt table really messed with my head, I could barely sit up i was so dizzy and light-headed. It was all very overwhelming. It's got me very nervous about the ... Read more

I have had a de-inspiring week. I didn't know leaving the challenge groups would kick me from the challenges, so now I am back to day one on both of them. I got some in-home exercise but I was too upset to walk. I am not even getting points for ... Read more

I am swinging back down, I swear riding my emotional rollercoaster is more exhausting than exercising. It's been so many years since I actually did any regular exercise (probably since high school) that I wonder if it is that change triggering t... Read more

I am feeling a bit better. I had a good Friday at work - there was a huge celebration for a retiring coworker. The local news even covered it, so I made it onto the web and TV news. Also "newsworthy" is that I weighed myself today - it's been 10... Read more

I am just not feeling it today. Or I am, but I am feeling sick and tired of everything and like I can't turn my brain off. I can't focus on work, I am jittery, and my fuse is ready to light at the briefest flicker. I don't know if this is part o... Read more

It's a blustery cold day today, but the weather is being a tease - it won't rain! For some reason I am always in a better mood when it rains. I have a friend the next state over who has SAD and it is raining where she is. I told her to send it o... Read more

I'm 30 now, but I still don't feel like an adult. When does that happen? Do I get a "Welcome to the Adult Club" card in the mail? When am I privy to all the adult secrets of making life work? We've been having money problems lately so no ca... Read more

I made it through dinner with the moms. We went to a spaghetti restaurant and I had a salad (with cottage cheese instead of dressing - I need the protein!) and pesto with mushrooms on angel hair, and turned down garlic bread. They serve these am... Read more

That's right, I passed the first day of this tempting week. I had my birthday party with friends today and when my best friend discovered nobody was bringing cake she wanted to grab one before meeting us at the cafe - and I told her no. It even ... Read more

I have done well the last two days and stayed within my nutrition range, according to the food tracker. But today begins a week of very difficult decisions. I started a breakfast club at my work - every Friday a different person "hosts" by bring... Read more

Guess who's back, back again! I didn't bring a friend, though, so Slim Shady still has me beat. I lost another two pounds, but tracking my food got too difficult when I began eating at my work cafeteria, and I have been in too much pain to even ... Read more
