Finally! I hit the 40 lb lost point.  Yesterday.  Today the scales didn’t give me the numbers I wanted but I don’t care.  I am counting it.  I have been waiting for it for so long that I don’t know how I let myself eat like I did yesterday.  After breaking my fast yesterday I […]

Keep on Moving..

So today has been busy already.. I woke up at around 4am to eat something before the sunrise. I couldn’t sleep afterwards, so I ended up cleaning the kitchen and washroom as I had planned to do yesterday.  This morning I woke up and have been cleaning and organizing things. I didn’t end up straightening […]

Downtown Charlie Brown

I have no idea why I made that my post title.  I was thinking I’m feeling down.. and this is what came out.  Well, I called for an appointment to talk to someone.  I have been feeling like crap for months now.. so what can it hurt to talk to someone. I also heard from […]

Still Kicking..

I’m still around, just doing my thing.  My sister in law was back here for a week to get things organized for when she moves out here for school in September.  I also had a meeting with my work and they are considering a part time arrangement for me.  I don’t know if this is […]

Size 14

Finally!  I bought a pair of size 14 jeans a couple of days ago.. they were a little snug but totally wearable.  My size 16 jeans were fine when you took them out of the wash, but they would loosen up and feel baggy after an hour of wearing them.. so today I decided to […]


Okay so I didn’t lose this week.  I am actually shocked.  I was down to 174.6 lbs.  on Sunday but today I am 175.6 again.  I’m a little upset but I’ve increased my activity quite significantly this week so it’s bound to go down in the near future again.   On Saturday I danced with the […]

The Friday of Wonderful Things

Well today is the day.  I am going to get back in it.  I am going to break this 175 barrier that I’ve been at for awhile now.  I’m in it to win it.  I’m starting to feel pumped again.  Yesterday I made chickpeas and spinach for dinner.  It was so good.  I haven’t eaten […]

Judgement Day

Okay, first let me premise this post by saying that I was reading Zeusmeatball’s post from yesterday and I posted a comment there.  This is where I got to thinking about the daily abuses of the overweight. We are judged. Multiple times a day. When we go for a job interview – is this person […]

This is not a Diet

So.. I have to keep reminding myself that I am not on a diet, this is a lifestyle change.  That is why I don’t get so hard on myself when I fall off the wagon, because that is life.  And even losing at a slow pace.. that is life too.. people come and visit, we […]

After a Break..

Well.. I know things have been very sporadic on my blog.  A lot has been going on and I haven’t had time to write but I have caught up on all of my reading 🙂 This week I had a complete meltdown.  I don’t know exactly what happened but I got very down and just […]
