Seems like this is my time to get uncomfortable. I guess I'm not like everyone else who freaks out at New Years or "beach season". I guess it's the middle of summer when I get to feeling like hey, maybe I'm not comfortable in this skin. Last yea... Read more
I lost my baby (in pounds)!

My baby is eight months old and I recently put her on the scale. She's a little peanut at 16lbs 11oz. I would have guessed she was closer to 20 the way it feels when I lug her around all the time! It occurred to me that as heavy as she fee... Read more

So, here's a first: two weeks ago I bought a ton of fruits and veggies. None of them went to waste!! I'm not sure this has ever happened to me before. Does that happen to you too? You go all out and think yes, this is it, and then a little while... Read more

Well I'm doing it and it feels great. Eating healthy and exercising. Going to the gym actually feels like a break and I'm enjoying it!! I'm already down to about 245 which is 30 lbs less than I was before I got pregnant!! So awesome! ... Read more
Before. Sad but true.

Today I took "before" pictures and was honestly surprised by what I saw. It's been so long since I even looked at myself. I've been wearing ratty old clothes and basically living in sweats and stretchy yoga pants. Part of this is being a new mom... Read more

Today was a fun and special day. Hubby and I took my daughter and my nephew to a Toronto Bluejay game. It was a gorgeous day and the jays won but most especially it was her first baseball game. I think my daughter had fun. She enjoyed dancing to... Read more

I'm here. Hopefully I'm back. Back for good, back for the better. Lots has changed since I was a regular here but sadly my weight did not. The most significant change is that in October I became a mom to an amazing little girl who makes me... Read more

One of the very worst things happened since the last time I wrote. I lost my baby. On a cold but sunny day in January I had to put my dog Bailey to sleep. She had kidney and heart disease and she was telling me it was time to go, but the pain... Read more

Hi again. I'm back, I think, I hope. The last year has been a nightmare for me. But I'm not sure what to say about all that. It's not an excuse for my weight...there's no excuse for that really...I know why I'm where I'm at. But there have ... Read more

It's happened. I've gotten fat, again. I've done everything we know we aren't supposed to do...no exercise, totally wrong foods and too much of everything, crazy sleep schedule and no SP support. I haven't weighed myself yet, but I know... Read more

First of all, thank you to everyone for your loving and supportive comments regarding my last blog. It's been freeing for me to just let go of my secret. As a social worker and as a friend I have helped others through this kind of stuff and I ... Read more

I've lived with secrets. All my life. There have been so many things I've kept secret, I can't remember most of them now, or why they were important...but there's one...one secret I've kept for decades now. And it's hurt me. It's made me sic... Read more

I'm just checkin in. I am feeling terrible, physically and emotionally. I haven't done any training in oh...a month. I got a terrible blister on the sole of my foot and it's still really painful to walk on. Having said that, I know tha... Read more

Do you have trigger foods? Those foods that you can't eat just one bite or that launch you into a full on binge-o-rama? Those foods that you buy and eat in your car on your way home? Or that you hide from everyone else and eat in the middle o... Read more
