Back Again
Thursday, June 14, 2012      0 comments

I am back again, I think. I stopped using Spark once I got my weight down to around 160 in 2009. I wasn't happy with that weight at all at the time, but I had cut my calories so much that I didn't think I could cut back any more and I didn't h... Read more
Weight & Depression
Tuesday, November 15, 2011      0 comments

Tomorrow is my 30th birthday and I am really depressed about it. I thought I would be better by now; cooler, healthier, happier, etc. Instead, I am in the same place I w... Read more
Getting Back to Spark People
Tuesday, November 01, 2011      2 comments

Today I decided that I need to get back to using this site regularly again. So, I started by tracking the food I've eaten today (and OMG, that DD breakfast sandwich was WAY worse fat and salt wise than I thought, yuck). Then I added my fitness... Read more

So last week (I think) I wrote about how I was getting so content and how I've been feeling as though I know what I need to do to lose weight but no longer sure if it is worth it to do what it will take. In many ways, I still think that way. I... Read more

Originally Written on June 26, 2009 So I was just on one of my Spark Teams on Spark People and a post got me thinking. In the post, one of the team members was talking about a health and wellness class she just attended and in the class th... Read more

I have been meaning to post for about 5 days now because last Friday, June 19th was my 1 year anniversary from when I fully dedicated myself to changing my lifestyle and losing weight. I have been waiting to post because I really wanted to find... Read more
"Normal" Again

So I've been taking those anti-depressants for a couple weeks now and I actually do feel much better. I'm not sure if it's the medicine or just that time has passed since the robberies and car accident or what, but I'll take it. Of course I ha... Read more

I am depressed. This hasn't been a very good week... actually, it hasn't been a very good past couple of months. I was never feeling great about the wedding, but I had basically fixated all of my negative feelings that I was having in general ... Read more

I haven’t posted in awhile again, but I am still alive! If you look at my weight calendar at all, you can see that even when I’m not posting entries, I keep that up to date. I know a lot of diet and weight loss gurus advise against weighing your... Read more
Getting Too Content
Monday, April 20, 2009      2 comments

Something strange has happened to me in the past 2 months-ish. I think I am becoming too content with my body. It’s weird. On one hand, I feel as though I look pretty good these days. On the other, a big part of me still wants to lose ... Read more

I started trying the Body For Life program on Monday of this week. So far I’ve done my 3 weight training workouts and 2 cardio workouts, so I just have one more cardio workout to do this weekend. I’m pretty sore, but I think it’s worth it. I... Read more
The Way I See It
Friday, February 13, 2009      1 comments

I have been reading tons of success stories lately of people who I really admire as far as weight loss is concerned. The one thing I noticed that they all have in common is that they were basically willing to do whatever it took to lose weight, ... Read more

I realize that it has been awhile since I posted anything new; I guess life has been busy lately. So, let's see... In the past couple weeks I tried my dress on several times and took it to a well respected seamstress nearby who assured me... Read more
Something to Prove
Monday, January 26, 2009      0 comments

So I’ve been thinking more about why I get annoyed when people compliment me on losing weight. I just re-read something I posted on a Spark board that I visit and I think I know the answer. I think it’s because I am personally embarrassed abou... Read more

My random thoughts today: * Why does life always seem so much better after a workout? * If working out and doing good things for yourself feels so good, then why is food (which is bad) always so hard to resist? * Why doesn’t... Read more
