After my last post about losing our baby, I got pregnant 3 months later and we now have an almost 9 month old cutie! I really need to lose all the weight I've gained from emotional eating from the loss and then pregnancy weight on top of it. M... Read more
Well, I am back.

I'm back after a few months. We made a baby. Then we lost it. Taking this time to heal and lose some weight before we try again. It's not easy when all I feel like doing is emotional eating. Need to look at it from the perspective of ... Read more
I'm married!
Thursday, June 25, 2015      1 comments

The wedding day was so much fun! Everyone keeps asking me, "Do you feel any different?" My response is always, "No, feels the same to me - except an extra ring on my finger." I am so happy to be married to my best friend, finally! We t... Read more
Why are people so rude??
Wednesday, April 22, 2015      3 comments

So someone left a pretty rude comment on my last blog that promptly got deleted. I thought this site was to be motivating and encouraging to each other, not thinking they know me and tell me I'm not doing what I'm supposed to be doing. So beca... Read more
Wedding Dress Fiasco - but it all worked out
Wednesday, April 22, 2015      1 comments

I had my first fitting today and the dress isn't even close to fitting me in that one spot on my back. I've done everything I could - lost 11 lbs, exercise like crazy, eat almost 100% clean. There was no way I was going to lose 2.5" in the nex... Read more
Putting my weight in perspective.

It's like being a normal weight and carrying a 30-40 lb backpack around everywhere I go! Not only is it unhealthy, but it's tiring! I have a hard time lifting 40 lbs, let alone walking around with it on my body, yikes! No wonder my knees hurt... Read more
Small victories!

I have my first fitting next week for my wedding dress, and it still doesn't zip up all the way. It is a lot closer than it was 2 months ago though!! It's obviously not going to miraculously fit in another week, so now I have to decide whether... Read more
I did it!

4 weeks of exercise in a row! Let me tell ya - I need a break!!!!! It feels great to be able to start something and finish it! I took it day by day and wanted to give up everyday, but I kept at it. There were some exercises taking place a... Read more

Well, I have made it through 3 weeks of the SparkPeople Spring Into Shape Bootcamp! I'm so proud of myself for making this far! It has really gotten my activity level up, and I've increased my workout time and calories burned. It's also helpi... Read more
Finally lost some weight again!
Saturday, March 28, 2015      0 comments

I was thinking about my calorie intake this week, and with the function on SP of eating more when you work out seemed to me like I was eating my calories back from my exercises. I tweaked a little a bit and turned off that function, and it seem... Read more
Celebrating the small victories!

I'm still not able to fit into my wedding dress yet, but I did go up 2 or 3 buttons in the back!!! Only 6 more buttons to go. I figure if I keep up the pace I'm at right now, it *should* fit in another month or so. Victory!!! I've been... Read more
Breathing a sigh of almost relief....

I've really been struggling with the stress of fitting into my wedding dress. So close yet so far. After starting SP's bootcamp 2.5 weeks ago, it's amazing to see the increase in my fitness level! While I haven't lost any weight, and I haven'... Read more
Getting results!
Monday, March 23, 2015      0 comments

My wedding dress is about 4" from closing just in one spot on my back where my newfound back fat is. I've never had back fat in my life, so it's kind of depressing. Anyhow, I started doing some resistance band training for my arms and back thi... Read more
Shame doesn't motivate me

I was feeling really down yesterday about my weight. I'm a part of my local TOPS group, and I'm thinking I should probably take a break from it and put the scale away for a bit. It doesn't help that we weight in at 5 o'clock in the evening. I... Read more
Me?? Run???
Wednesday, March 18, 2015      3 comments

I was out with the dog, my fiancé, and some friends the other day. The dog wasn't walking very well, so I decided to run to get him going. The run felt great! I've always despised running, because my legs hurt so bad. With taking the magnesi... Read more
