Changing my mind
Thursday, April 08, 2010      7 comments

I love being a woman and love being able to change my mind whenever I feel like it for whatever reason I feel like. One of my initial goals/rewards was to lose a lot of weight so I could fit into a dress for my graduation in the middle of M... Read more
Slowing down and enjoying life
Wednesday, April 07, 2010      10 comments

This month I decided to just kind of slow down and not obsess over my weightloss journey. I am still going to the gym every morning before work and still keeping up with my running. I am still eating the same way I have been for the past 7 month... Read more

Moderation
Monday, April 05, 2010      7 comments

Well, I guess April is turning into the month where I am learning about moderation and the meaning of this being a lifestyle change as opposed to a temporary diet. In March I wanted to maximize my weightloss so I worked out every day and I ate s... Read more
A "diva"???? ME???
Sunday, April 04, 2010      13 comments

That's my husband's new name for me. I am always bugging him to take pictures of me now. It's just funny because the past 10+ years he had to fight to get me in a picture. Now I have turned completely the other direction. I don't even feel like ... Read more
Maybe I will be a runner
Saturday, April 03, 2010      6 comments

This is a copy and paste of a blog I wrote on January 20th that I titled "I'll Never be a Runner": "I guess I should never say never, but it's looking more and more like I will never be a runner. When I first began this journey, I had hopes... Read more
I hate measuring
Friday, April 02, 2010      8 comments

Last month I tried measuring myself to see what kind of difference I would see. I didn't lose an inch anywhere, even though my clothes feel a lot looser than they did on March 1st. I really see a difference in my body this past month. Zero inche... Read more
Attacking April with "change"
Thursday, April 01, 2010      6 comments

This past Sunday I saw an episode of Ruby where her therapist encouraged her to change 5 things in her life. Things had grown routine and mundane for Ruby and her weightloss slowed and she was encouraged to change things up a bit. I liked this c... Read more
Not discouraged
Thursday, April 01, 2010      15 comments

I swear, I am not. I weighed in at 150 this month. The scale kept hovering between 149.5 and 150 but settled on 150 twice. So that's OK. I lost 7 lbs the month of March. That's not bad. I am not going to drown myself in thoughts of "why".... i.e... Read more

Feeling Skinny!
Sunday, March 28, 2010      12 comments

Yesterday I was bitten again by the shopping bug. Ugh! This is becoming a problem, lol. I have a hard time passing up good sales as I never (or rarely) buy anything full price. Now that I can shop in regular Misses sizes it has just opened up th... Read more
Pain is a powerful motivator
Friday, March 26, 2010      9 comments

The big, number one reason I finally decided to get serious about losing weight was because I was in my mid 30's and was living a life of constant pain. My feet had hurt consistantly for years! My back has hurt off and on for the past 10 years..... Read more
"Not pregnant, just fat, thanks for asking"
Thursday, March 25, 2010      13 comments

When I was 200 lbs I can't tell you how many times I was asked when I was "due"... I have even had complete strangers rub my belly!!!! Then I would come home crying and would overeat to soothe my pitiful soul. I became a person who went to great... Read more
