No Motivation
Wednesday, December 27, 2017      0 comments

I am lacking motivation lately. I got back on the sugar-free wagon only to trip over my feet and fall right back off. Last weeks weigh-in was good, but this week I expect to have gained a little. It doesn't help that I just started my TOM so I a... Read more
Allergies and Holidays
Thursday, December 21, 2017      1 comments

It turns out my stomach flu was a red meat allergy. Took a week to clear up, and I have to more strictly avoid red meat now. Not a problem for me, really, I don't particularly like red meat. It means my husband can't try to switch lean hamburger... Read more
Stomach Flu
Friday, December 15, 2017      1 comments

I am coming up from the stomach flu. I lost 3lbs in 3 days from the liquid diet and constant bathroom trips (sorry, TMI!). I hope the weight loss stays and the stomach flu goes! Other than that nothing is really new. Christmas presents are nearl... Read more
Craving Crusher and NSVs
Wednesday, December 06, 2017      3 comments

I am still struggling with my fluctuating pounds, but I am wrestling my sugar cravings under control. Having some candy at home because of the holidays has helped (I'm the type that needs something to resist, I gotta flex the will power muscle).... Read more
Sugar Cravings and Killer Abs/Glutes
Monday, November 27, 2017      0 comments

I am still struggling with sweets. Yesterday I had a half slice of pie and two mini candies (a Money on the Honey and a peppermint patty). The types of candies aren't terrible (definitely worse choices I could make), and they're mini candies, bu... Read more
Sugar Cravings
Wednesday, November 22, 2017      1 comments

I beat my sugar cravings almost two years ago with the challenge here on Spark, but the other night I found myself putting a package of peppermint patties in the grocery cart. It doesn't help that I am an impulse shopper and usually avoid doing ... Read more
Stranger Danger

I have work and school, and this weekend an out of town friend is coming to stay with us. We usually don't allow anyone to stay with us, and would rather pay for their hotel than have guests, but we just don't have the money right now to spring ... Read more
Who's That in the Mirror?
Sunday, October 22, 2017      6 comments

This morning I was heading to the shower (at 7:00, because for some unearthly reason my body wakes me up at 5:00 on the weekends) and I did a doubletake when I glanced in the mirror. I didn't recognize myself. Now, part of it was I just chopped ... Read more
Identity Issues

I went to the doctor the other day, and they were doing their annual updating of records. For some reason the nursing and reception staff has been completely overturned, they're all new so none of them know me or have only met me once, from anot... Read more
Falling Into the Dirt
Tuesday, August 22, 2017      3 comments

I've been weaning off one of my medications in order to start a new one, and it's been making me feel like I was going batsh*t crazy. I finally started the new medication and have been feeling a little more relaxed, so when my husband and I both... Read more
I Lost 100lbs in 40 Weeks!
Friday, July 21, 2017      8 comments

I ripped the headline style from a Spark friend, who was totally right. It seems pretty impressive when put that way. I began getting serious around my birthday last year (October 25) and have since lost 105lbs. That's about 100lbs in about 40 w... Read more
Mini Goal
Wednesday, June 14, 2017      1 comments

My official weigh day is later today, but I've been naughty and keep peeking during the week. I hit 225, which was the next mini goal on my list! Hopefully I can sustain a downward trend for my next mini goal of 200. My husband and I are e... Read more

Last month the psychologist told me to get my anxiety under control (I didn't think it was very bad, but it seems it's actually quite severe and I've just gotten used to being in a constant state of anxiety). Most of my MHPs focus on my bipolar ... Read more

I think I have to admit I have a sugar addiction. My hubby and I went to a movie on Sunday where we had dinner. I did really well - got myself a mixed greens, tofu, and goat cheese wrap. It came with tortilla chips, which I didn't eat. I got ice... Read more
5K Fundraising!
Saturday, April 08, 2017      1 comments

I made the homepage of the 5k I am walking for later this month as a top fundraiser! I am at the very bottom of the top fundraiser list, but I am on it! My goal was $100 and I have hit $195 so far. It's the 2017 Nebraska Lymphoma Walk, which is ... Read more
