Completely frustrated

Well I'll start with the good stuff- I can now run 1 consecutive mile, something I've never been able to do in my life. Yesterday I ran 1/2 mile on 6.2 with an incline of 2! I have great energy, and can bend down and pick things up without gru... Read more
What have you done today to make you feel proud?

Felt awful yesterday because I went over my allotted daily calories...but then I started thinking about what I DID do right. I went to the gym, I didn't drink alcohol, took my vitamins, and resisted eating before bed even though I was very hung... Read more
Working hard to meet my deadline
Monday, February 08, 2010      1 comments

January was a tough month. I spent 8 days on vacation and didn't exercise much at all during that time. Then I got sick, and basically didn't hit the gym the last 2 weeks of the month. February 1st I got back into the groove! My weight loss ... Read more
On a healthy track again
Wednesday, December 09, 2009      2 comments

I'm definitely not losing as fast as I did in 2007, but that's OK. This has to be a plan I can stick to for life. Back then I was eating exactly 1200 cal/day and sweating like crazy working out in the hot FL sun. That's NOT a realistic lifelo... Read more
I do NOT suggest the strep throat diet (but it works)
Wednesday, April 18, 2007      1 comments

Well my weight is down into the 120's now, but I'm not tracking it on here because I am really sick. I have probably eaten a total of 300 cal since Sat. I have strep throat/tonsilitus and I can't swallow without going through excuriating pain.... Read more
Holding at 133 lbs

Well I am a size 6 now, how awesome is that?! But I'm still a long way from my goal. I have been slacking because of the new boyfriend. He eats healthy, but he also sabotages me by saying things like "You don't need to lose anymore weight." a... Read more
My favorite jeans (and they're a size 4)
Friday, March 09, 2007      2 comments

Every week or so, I attempt to pull my favorite jeans on. They're these beautiful low-rider ripped size 4 jeans from A&F. And while they can be yanked on @ my present weight of 137, they're not looking hot yet. There's still some definite muf... Read more

I read something very interesting yesterday. There was a study done on a large group of women who ate 1200 cal/day for a period of time, then switched to 2600 cal/day for the same length of time, and kept losing weight. I can't find the inform... Read more
Halfway to go plateau
Wednesday, February 21, 2007      1 comments

I'm halfway to my goal weight and the scale has stopped moving. I'm still eating 1200cal/day and exercising a min of 1 hour. I guess i need to mix it up and do some different activities. Confession- Would you believe that I ate a whole ... Read more
My trackers are now public
Sunday, February 18, 2007      0 comments

I've made it so that my fitness and nutrition trackers are now viewable. I have nothing to hide! ;) I honestly try to track every bite that goes into my mouth. If you have any feedback (whether good/bad) I'd love to hear it. Keep in mind I r... Read more

I love that quote. I think I need to set higher goals, because thus far I've exceeded even my own expectations. So why not set the bar even higher! I started thinking on my bike ride today what I'd like to do after I hit my goal weight. ... Read more

I'm on a roll now!

Seeing the scale moving in the right direction has been extremely motivating. I exercise every single day. OMG, did those words just come out of MY mouth? I cannot believe it's true. And you know what else? It has really improved my mood. ... Read more
Calculating my BMR

"You use energy no matter what you're doing, even when sleeping. The BMR Calculator will calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR); the number of calories you'd burn if you stayed in bed all day." My BMR = approx 1500 That means I shou... Read more
Small goals along the way
Thursday, December 07, 2006      0 comments

I'm trying to think of some fun ways to reward myself (NOT with food). Each milestone also has a deadline to accomplish it by. So far this is what I've come up with- DONE! 150 pounds (before New Year's Eve)= phone call to at least 5... Read more
