Celebrating my 4 month anniversary of this plateau

title says it all. Weather is finally getting nice. (Today was the first nice day of the year - that's a little discouraging.) Would like to jog. Worried I'll start going backwards soon. Need to buy some personal pronouns from the loca... Read more

Gah! I have been working on this since December. That's more than 3 months at a plateau. I saw a 50 lb loss for exactly ONE day, but now I'm back at the 49. I think I'll probably remain here until the spring when I can get outside and ... Read more
Recovering from this week

It was a weird week. Facing an old and horrible fear was traumatic and I went through a lot of emotions. I am on the other side of it now and I feel reborn. Well placed, appropriate rage has replaced the uneasy insecurities I have felt... Read more

I knew the risk of moving back to this town and that is why I fought so hard for 6 years not to come here. I lost the battle, so here we are. It was a valiant effort, but in the end I was defeated. Why did we move back? We were broke, losin... Read more

I have lost 49 pounds. Woo Hoo!!!... That's what I said two months ago. Now I'm sick of it. I sweat, I refrain, I moderate, I went back to tracking every meal. I want to see 50! I'm even sick of my size 4 pants - I think it woul... Read more
Go ahead. Hurt me again.

I think there are some people who are skilled in the art of damaging a person. Here is a rundown of the steps involved (you see, I've been studying this for quite some time): 1. Cause a person mental harm with a destructive behavior. 2... Read more

I have found more confidence. It was hiding behind all the things I didn't try for because I thought I would fail. In the past I would stick with what I was good at, but I never felt like I was good enough. Lurking behind me was a mountain ... Read more
Oh my goodness, I can hear again!

Why have I been MIA? Because I've been desperately ill since January 1, and it only got worse and worse as the weeks went by. At last, we got an antibiotic to work. As of about 30 seconds ago, my ears finally opened up. I'm on the mend! ... Read more
Self-esteem and other lies I told myself.

I'll just come right out and say it: I did not feel good about my appearance when I was overweight. I hope that's not too vague. No amount of people who told me I "looked fine" could break through the roadblock in my mind. There w... Read more

We're in birthday mode here. My birthday was Saturday. My daughter's is on the 16th. My husband's is the 18th. My very dear friend turns 40 on the 20th. That's a lot of cake. My family attempted to give me a hard time for having a tiny, alm... Read more

In 1 day and 30 minutes it's my birthday! I tried to have it cancelled this year, not because I feel old (32 is not old), it's because I miss the traditions from my childhood. First birthday without my Nana. I miss her. Since it's not ... Read more

One way to kill a few minutes of spare time is to make a list of resolutions for the new year. Another way is to play psychic and try to predict upcoming events. I could straighten up a little bit. Or I could make prank phone call... Read more
Why did I get rid of my fat pants when they stopped being just my pants?

Because of a day like today. (WARNING - I'm going to talk about food. Lots and lots of delicious food.) Looking in my kitchen, I can see... Coffee cake Pecan biscotti scrambled egg and sausage bake veggie platter pickles/... Read more

It went better than I expected. We saw one half of the family for lunch and the other half after. Not bad, considering having them together in one place was a potential powder keg. Why does Christmas make little children so moody?!? I ... Read more
