About Me:
I'm trying to lose weight and get healthy! I recently joined WW and think its all starting to click for me, no off and on plan just life with good choices everyday. I think those Ask Roni's helped me figure that out and somehow I not only heard it but I "got" it. I'm a full time student, full time employee, and full time wife and "mom" to my furry kids.
Plan of Choice:
Weight Watchers
Workout Philosophy:
I only exercise because I have to

1. Hit my 5 lb loss this week (1-27) I'm only .6 away so I hope I blow right passed it!
Met it!! 1-27-09 !!

2. Make 3 minutes on this really intimidating step machine thing at the gym that all the super fit people seem to be enjoying by March 31st Met 2-22-09

3. Run a 5K by 12-31-09 (hopefully before since I live in Wisconsin and it'll be cold AGAIN :) by then.

4. Hit my 5% goal by March 1, 2009 (247.8) Met it!! 2-17-09

5. Hit 10 lbs loss by Feb 21, 2009 (249) Met it!! 2-10-09

6. Hit my 10% goal by April 7, 2009 (234.8)

What If Quitting Stopped Being An Option?

Posted on October 1, 2009 at 8:47pm 1 Comment

I updated my blog and just wanted to share here too! :) 10,560 steps or as it’s more commonly known…2 miles! That’s what I ran yesterday without stopping. For the first time in my ENTIRE life. Holy cow!! What do I attribute this to? I wish I knew 100% but one thing the husband said really stuck with me. He’s run for about 20 years and I asked him if he ever just wants to stop or does it just not enter his mind. He said he just… Continue

My Boot Camp is Over... Pictures :)

Posted on September 27, 2009 at 10:02pm 5 Comments

Well we’ll start with the weigh in results… I was down .6. I am tempted to say “only” but in all honesty I didn’t work out quite as much as I have been (homework had piled up and let’s be honest you gotta do it…) and I’d lost 15 in about 5 weeks so I’m sure the old body is in some transition. So when all is said and done I’ve lost 16.2 in 40 days and 36.2 over the course of the year. Not too shabby. I’ve included some before/during pictures in this post… why is that so scary? Maybe because it’s… Continue

Hi Everyone - it's been a while. My intention is always to update here and my new blog but life is so crazy it just doesn't happen sometimes! Sooooo for the quick recap. I'm down 15.4 since I started this little self made boot camp and have lost a total of 35.6 since January. (I updated some pics at my blog) More importantly I'm IN LOVE with running. I can't seem to get enough and every day I see myself getting stronger, faster,… Continue

Hamstrings and Loss

Posted on September 10, 2009 at 11:08am 2 Comments

Wow it’s been a while! Some updates to start! I have started my own blog A Running Start - how appropriate :) I still will be around on BTL but like Arlene I just felt like branching out a little and getting some web experience. I have lost 7.6 lbs as of last Sunday on my boot camp plan and have reached the ½ way point as of Monday so only a couple more weeks to go! In fact two weeks from this Sunday it will be complete. I have to… Continue

The Switch Has Been Flipped...

Posted on August 24, 2009 at 5:25pm 2 Comments

Ever had something that was going so well you didn’t want to talk about it because you were sure you’d jinx it? Well that my friends is why I have been sooo quiet lately :) You know that elusive light switch we all talk about when it comes to weight loss… when it’s on life is good and when it’s off we can’t get on that healthy living train for love or money! I’m happy to report my switch is ON and the light is burning brightly. The husband and I are in the throes of our 40 day boot camp and I’m… Continue

I totally get what you're saying Katie regarding eating before a Weigh In. Thanks for the words of encouragement.. I'll post tonight or tomorrow the results!

Thanks for the comment! I don't feel like motivation for anybody I read other people's blogs and get inspired by them. You totally made my day saying I motivate you!!! Good luck and if I can do it you can too!

Thank you!! I'm happy you were inspired by me even though I didn't lose. We are both full time students! But I can' t believe you work full time on top of that, YIKES!!! That would be so hard. Welcome to blog to lose!

Thanks for your comment Katie. I too experienced that before I go to bed too! Hmm.. I don't think I'm stressed or feeling anxious. But maybe deep down inside I am? I'll monitor it.. but thanks again for your info.

Thanks so much for your comment welcoming me into BTL. I can't wait to see some progress and get to share it all with you! Good luck with your goals, I'm sure you can achieve them and so much more! Thanks again!

Thanks for your comment! How sweet. Sure I can do a day in the life of Rachel post, if you're serious! Hahaha... but I'm pretty sure it's nothing special!

That's awesome- and thanks for leaving the comment. I saw it posted on a friend's facebook pics- and I had to snag it for myself...makes you think, doesn't it? Glad to have shared something positive with you! Have a great day!

Just one more thing- noticed your blog today "finding focus, again" . . .You need to give yourself some credit. Out of the 6 goals on your page that you've listed, you've met 4 of 6- and the 2 you haven't met? they aren't even close to their deadlines yet. Shake off the couple of days bugging are doing this the right way- and we all have 'off' days :)

Thanks Katie! I remember starting out and reading other people's stories and thinking "That's great for them, but I could never lose weight." Something finally clicked for me and I did! Sounds like you're really in a good place right now and ready to get healthy. AND a fellow vegetarian! Can't wait to get to know you more :)
