First mini-goal achieved….

I guess 10% weight loss isn’t a mini goal for some, let’s just call it a goal. Anyway. Weighed in at 204 yesterday. That means 23 lbs lost and I’ve hit my first 10%. So exciting. I snapped a photo for the occasion. Apologies for the lousy lighting. The picture on the left is from […]

either way it’s okay.

So I dropped to third place in the WL competition at work. Sad. 🙁  I still have a few more weeks to take back my #2 spot, I don’t think I’m going to get to #1, last I checked she was a good 4.5% ahead of me. I made the most uhmayzing asparagus for dinner […]


So remember I was talking about being in that weight loss competition at work? It’s been extended through May. And I’m in second place. Sounds like I need to find some guy with a crow bar!! Too soon?

In Like A Lion, Out Like a Lamb…

Lu was born the first week of October and her pregnancy was definitely a trial.  My postpartum experience with James was an emotional one, my experience with Lu was much more physically trying.  I had the worst back pain and it seemed like even lifting my 7 lb baby was an Olympic event.  I fell […]

mostly unrelated frustration.

This blog has become a complete sanctuary for spammers. I wouldn’t care so much if I didn’t get an email every time a comment was posted. I disabled email alerts and changed a few settings hoping to get it under control. I really do NOT want to have to delete this blog without informing you […]

Full disclosure. I basically had a big freaking piece of cheesecake for lunch. The holidays stress me out at work. A lot. Stress makes me want to eat. A lot. I work around baked goods. Not goods. Anyway. So I just wanted to get that out of the way. My weight this morning was 165.4 […]
