It's been the best of times, it's been the worst of times. Mostly the best though. Yeah, I'm weighing in at 156 today. Again. Yes, that's 1 lb OVER my "oh poop" weight of 155. Not anywhere close to the 140s, or the 139 I had hoped to be... Read more

Originally posted on the thread about how eating healthy and exercising has changed you: I had a crazy realization about this just now thinking about recent events. Here's my story - I had an event to go to, which had free food and limited ... Read more

Well the challenge this week for the Sapphires is to write a blog about our goals this summer, so that's what I'm here to do! :) My biggest focus was finishing up my training and running the half marathon at the end of June. I am happy to ... Read more

On the report stuffs. Been eating pretty decent, except for the fact that I keep feeling the need to snack up until I go to sleep. Need to have dinner, then maybe ONE small thing after. Like a sugar free popsicle. Or the like. I think that'... Read more

New Goals
Monday, July 20, 2009      5 comments

I didn't bother filling out the rest of last week as I changed my plan halfway through. After research and advice, I have figured out that I am definitely not eating enough. The new goal is 1700 per day (and trying not to vary it too much), ke... Read more
Analyze Me
Friday, July 17, 2009      3 comments

I am asking, nay, pleading, for your advice. Analyze me. Don’t worry that you’re not an expert/doctor/trainer, I run everything through my common sense filter and I won’t do something just because you say to. But I’d like to put it all out th... Read more
Better Days a Comin'?

So I was incredibly excited that I started the week at 153.8. It was all going to be downhill from there. I was going to slide right into the 152s and maybe the 151s. It was going to be glorious! I finally had my head on straight and was rea... Read more

Yes, I am resurrecting the weekly report. It helped me lose and I think it can help me lose again. I'll be filling this out as the week progresses so if you are for some reason oddly interested in my numbers, check back to this post on 7/20 if... Read more
Much Better
Friday, July 10, 2009      2 comments

So just a quick update because I left it so Debbie Downer last time. I seem to have finally gotten a handle on both my appetite and my mindset. As long as I am mindful of what I am eating, I seem to be satiated on 1300-1400 calories. My ankle... Read more
Ugh
Monday, July 06, 2009      1 comments

The good: I spent most of Saturday hanging around a group of my friends in a swimsuit without feeling overly self conscious. I felt more self conscious that I WASN'T self conscious hanging out in my suit. This is HUGE for me! The ba... Read more

Well, the pounds should be flying off, right? Not so much. I know it's because it is TOM week, but I am ready to see under 150, please? My appetite is getting smaller, but I'm still on about about 1550 calories per day average, which with my ... Read more

Quick update on how the first week back to sanity is going: Food-wise: I swear, I feel like I'm in detox this week, at least early in the week. 1500 calories and I was still hungry at the end of the day. I was resenting how many calori... Read more

Finished the half marathon without walking, about a 10:20 min/mile pace, time was 2:16:18. I was hoping for 2:15, but between having to sprint about half a mile to the registration line to get my tag and number and being the absolute last perso... Read more

I have been really slacking lately on some areas - training and work and just living is eating my life, in good ways, but I haven't been around much. I'll post more after the race, but a quickie: -I'm still at about 2-3 lbs higher than my ... Read more
