I announced to my family that I am pregnant this weekend. We had three announcements this weekend. My mother's side was the most surprised and asked the most questions. My dads side was the most outwardly happy - my dad immediately called the en... Read more

From the comments and friend requests I've been made aware that yesterday my SparkSpotlight went up. Thank you for all the kind words! I thought I would dedicate a blog post to my story to this point, since I haven't really done that. A LIT... Read more
Identifying Myself
Monday, September 17, 2018      5 comments

So I had a family reunion over the weekend. I've been dealing with coming to terms with my new identity as NOT a plus-size woman now, and have been hearing myself described by others as "skinny", "small", and "tiny". I even got catcalled for the... Read more

My therapist suggested I write a blog post about this, so here I am. When I began my weight loss journey one of my goals was to be able to have children. Since I had PCOS and had gone through chemotherapy I saw a specialist to talk about my chan... Read more

I have been on a "My 600lb Life" binge lately, and today at lunch I was so full I skipped my afternoon snack. I had a Kroger Chicken BLT Salad and a Dannon greek yogurt, and as I sat at my desk I began thinking about how much food it used to tak... Read more

One of my personal trainers thinks I am losing weight too fast because I am starting to see some loose skin on my legs. Everywhere I looked - even the CDC! - says 1-2lbs per week is healthy, and that's what I am losing. To be honest, at 157lbs l... Read more

On my last official weigh day I hit 166lbs, just 7lbs from being at a 50% body weight loss! I am so excited. It also means I am now considered overweight and no longer obese! I am also discouraged, though, because this week I have been gaining 1... Read more
