I've spent money before on diet programs that have WORKED... specifically eDiets (the food delivery program -and- the regular recipe site that is just like this). I've also spent money on things that didn't work (Herbalife, Weight Watchers, etc.... Read more

Today is Thanksgiving, November 25th. In three months I will turn 32. My goal in the next three months is to lose approximately 20 pounds! While I'm going to allow myself to enjoy the holiday and eat whatever I want today, I'll be back in sync t... Read more

I was much better with my water intake today, but not so hot with my intake of fruits and vegetables. One serving of fruit is pretty lame...especially when it does so very little to light up that little fruit and veggie tracker graphic. I would ... Read more

I was pretty good today! Everything that went into my mouth was logged... and I stayed within my calorie range (though I went a little over on fat - thanks to Mom's meatloaf) I need to try and get more water into my system. This is where I ... Read more
I had a perfect day (so far)

I'm going to count the past 6 days as "practice" for getting back on track. Practice as in I didn't do a horrible job, but I didn't do the best job either. I have been giving it some thought, and I think I know what I'd like to do for myself to ... Read more

The first wedding I attended was on September 4th. From then until now I attended FOUR more!!! Unfortunately, while all of this was going on, I was also on quite the food and alcohol bender. Now that all is said and done, I'm up approximately 5... Read more

I took a little Spark People break during this first week of school just because things have been a little nutty... BUT, I am happy to report that I managed to secure myself a fair amount of SparkPoints today by logging my food and even doing ca... Read more

Last night I attended the wedding of a good friend from college. The wedding was held in the historic Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ and was a great time. I didn't stay on program for the night, but feel great and am back on track for today. I ... Read more

Today was the first day that I started to feel better again after being pretty violently ill and barely able to eat anything since Saturday night. Unfortunately the lack of consuming calories had the opposite effect on my weight loss... I gained... Read more

On Saturday I drove down to the Jersey Shore to celebrate my friend Bevin's 30th birthday. The night began with a trip to an Italian restaurant for dinner following by an evening at a night club. I'm not the biggest fan of Italian food unless it... Read more

I finally found my camera, so here's my first video blog. I'm not wearing any make-up so excuse the way I look, haha... hopefully I'll get better at these and make them more interesting in the future.... Read more
Need a chocolate fix? Try this (it's fat free!)

I purchased my first box of No Pudge brownie mix from Christmas Tree Shops today. The boxes were 2 for $5, so I bought one box of regular chocolate brownies and one mint. On the box there was a recipe for a single serving that you can make in th... Read more

I went to a block party yesterday. While I didn't overindulge at the dinner table at all (despite the fact that the party host made pulled pork in a smoker), I did help myself to a couple of brownies, and late at night - a slice of pizza. Oops. ... Read more

I was so pleased with this picture when I saw it (it was snapped last night at a street festival). For the first time, I'm starting to see early signs of progress. NO DOUB... Read more
Still looking for my camera!

I still want to do a video blog but I can't figure out where I put my dumb camera. Well - hopefully I will find it soon! I ran a 5 mile race tonight as a part of the New York State Parks Summer Series. Tonight it was at Jones Beach, one of ... Read more
