Back in the swing of things

I had gotten pretty close to reaching my fitness goals, but a month ago I started a new medication that made me gain some weight. It's not a ton, but since I'm only about 5', the effects are fairly dramatic (both in regard to I feel overall and ... Read more

Wednesday, March 16, 2016 5 comments
I was sick last week and didn't update, but I did track my weight/measurements; down 1lb and 1.5 inches. This past week I was still not feeling 100%, but I was eating better and still exercising. UP 1lb plus a few ounces! I did lose 2.75 inches ... Read more

6 Weeks already?! Wow, that went fast! So, pretty much everything is the same from last week; still sick, weight and measurements haven't changed. However, I'm putting that in the win category, since I've been not wanting to eat, and when I have... Read more

Went to the Dr and was diagnosed with a double ear infection and bronchitis which may lead to pneumonia, and if I'm still sick next week have to get checked for mono. I'm sad that I have to stay quarantined since I'm contagious, which means no ... Read more
Week 5 Summary- *Shrug*
Tuesday, February 23, 2016 3 comments
No change on the scale from last week, although I'm down 2.5 inches. On Sunday my husband and I went out, and I tried on my "fat" jeans, even though I've been trying to only do so on Tuesdays. They had been really tight, but I was able to zip th... Read more

Tuesday, February 16, 2016 5 comments
As of today I've been tracking everything, eating better, and exercising more for exactly one month. I lost about 5 lbs over the first 3 weeks.. but nada last. Not even HALF a lb, and I even gained an inch on my hips (and it's sure not muscle!).... Read more

I want to weigh myself... but weigh-in day is Tuesday! Tomorrow marks the completion of week 4, and I only broke my rule of weighing in once per week once so far (last week). I've been fighting the urge all week. The scale is in the bathroom, I ... Read more

Tuesday, February 09, 2016 3 comments
The first two weeks of making diet/exercise changes brought about a 4lb weight loss (2 each week) and 5 inches. The third week? .8 lbs and only 1.5 inches. Small progress is good progress, I know, but.. why so little all of a sudden? I've increa... Read more
Struggling with calories
Thursday, February 04, 2016 7 comments
I'm on my third week of eating healthier, and I have to say... I'm really struggling. My biggest downfall in terms of eating has always been eating too LITTLE. Even though I know that slows down your metabolism and can contribute to weight gain,... Read more
Week 2 Summary-- trying to focus on the positive
Tuesday, February 02, 2016 2 comments
I put way too high expectations on myself. It's been pointed out to me numerous times (even by my therapist yesterday!); I can't help it, I'm a perfectionist. I KNOW that the "healthy" way to lose weight is 1-2lbs per week. From week 1 to 2, I l... Read more

Today is the first day of week 2, and I'm feeling pretty good! I stuck to almost all of the guidelines I set for myself-- I ate healthier, switched my meals around to have a larger lunch (carb loading before class) and a smaller dinner (usually ... Read more

I've been on this site since 2008, and have never posted a blog! I figure now is the time, even if no one else reads it. Back in August of 2015, I had finally broken through my plateau (130lbs) and even surpassed my goal weight of 125 (124... Read more
