Second verse, same as the first!

Well, I’m back.  One year and 25 pounds later.  I do have good news though… I had a baby!  He is the sweetest little dude ever.  He’s 12 weeks old now and I’m ready to start again.  I was fairly successful the first time around, so I am hoping for some more success this time.
I’ll [...]

My weight is 175!

Woot!  I am so excited!  I am getting ready to go to the gym and then Easter shopping.  One more pound and I will have lost 30 pounds since last June!  YEAH!  Its not fast, but I’m moving again and happy about it!

It’s a beautiful day and I am overcome with guilt.

Its such a pretty day here in Indianapolis.  Its a bit chilly, but beautiful to look at.  I need to be doing some yard work, but don’t really feel like it.  I’ll probably stay in the house all day, my only trip out may just be to the gym.  I set up a schedule to [...]

I am FREAKING out!

Hello all!  I apologize that this is the post that I do after such a long hiatus, but I felt like I needed to vent, so here goes nothing.
I am so frustrated!  I want to be thin.  I want to be healthy.  I am working hard and seeing very few results.  I’ve been watching the [...]

I’m moving again!

I had joined the Biggest Loser challenge at for the first 3 weeks, I lost every week but just 1/2-1 pound each.  Last week, a lightbulb lit in my brain and I was “into it” again!  I can’t believe it.  It feels so good to be interested in losing weight and exercising again.  I worked [...]

I am trying SO HARD!

I don’t know why I can’t keep up with this anymore.  I enjoy reading more than writing I guess.   I have been stalled for quite some time.  I set goals, but they really didn’t ”stick” to me like I had hoped.
So the good news first!
Goal #1 – I am drinking 64 ounces of water a [...]

Pedometer and The Biggest Loser

Well, I’m obviously struggling to get back on a routine. Humm…
I bought a new pedometer. This one just plugs into the computer and records my steps. Now I don’t have a reason to use my spreadsheet, so I’m struggling with a routine.
Here’s a good thing – I joined the “Biggest Loser” challenge at work. It [...]

It’s been too long!

I can’t believe that I have been away for this long!  Geez I’ve missed this place.  I’m not getting my steps.  I’m not watching what I’m eating.  Well, weight is so far so good though.  Well, I’m gonna go read some of your blogs and try to catch up.  I’ll try to think up how [...]
