About Me:
I have been blogging here at Blog to Lose off and on over the years ever since Roni created it. Which was a LONG time ago. Throughout those years I have lost (and gained back) large amounts of weight several times. So weight has always been an issue for me.

In the summer of 2013 my husband and I switched gyms. Our new gym was not up to the standard of our old gym, but they had day care so we thought we would give it a try. Shortly after joining the new gym my husband and I both got pneumonia. We both think it was from the venting system of the new gym. He got better but I didn't. I was put on steroids for six months and I gained 70 pounds during that time. I also let a lot of bad habits creep back in such as giving up tracking, giving up water, and eating out a lot. I become so sedentary that I began to imagine I would never recover. I slowly took off twenty pounds and got comfortable again. I have been at this so long that I know exactly how bad I can be as well as how good I have to be to keep the scale from creeping up.

The truth is I am not really happy with where I am at. I really need to get this weight off for several reasons ~ happiness, health, over all well being ~ and I am hopeful that BTL will provide me a supportive outlet that it once was for me when I lost weight in the past.

I Put Them Away

Posted on March 27, 2014 at 9:30am 2 Comments

Well.  I took them out of the closet and folded them.  I plan to put them away later today when I can get some help from the husband.  Even though I gained 70 pounds last year I kept all my smaller sized clothes in my closet as inspiration.  At least that is what I told myself.  The truth is all they did was take up space that we desperately need.  We have been living in such a mess because there just isn't enough room.  So I am putting them away.  For now.  I fully intend to be able to wear…


Holding Pattern

I feel like I have been stuck in the same loop of healthy and unhealthy behaviors for the past few months.  In all honestly, I did have a serious illness combined with some few life surprises that derailed my initial enthusiasm.  I have lost about 20 pounds from my highest weigh in which puts me at 275.  I've been kind of hanging around there for a while now and I really want to get another 25 pounds off.  Like NOW.  I clearly know why I am not currently losing.  As we have discussed…

I haven't been able to do much on the activity front since I had my tooth pulled on Friday.  I can not believe how much pain I have been in.  I figured I would walk on the treadmill today but I can still feel the pulsating in my gums so I have decided to wait it out.  The good news is that I have been doing super good on the eating front.  Funny how that works since I have been way to sore to eat much of anything.  LOL. 


Also, I have been two full days without the juice…

I think the name of the game is if something could possibly go wrong in my life, it's going to go.  Had to deal with a two recent unexpected deaths, a close friend who is terminally ill, and an emergency tooth extraction.  I'm off my game but still have taken the opportunity to be good when I can.

You can do this! :) I haven't made much friends on here yet, but even with the eleven I have they help me out. Sometimes I just need someone in my corner pushing me when I need it....and picking me up when I fall. I don't have many friends that are supportive in my weight loss. It's refreshing to get on here and blog(vent) about my feelings. I need the support from others and that pat on my back once in awhile feels great. We will get through this journey I know it.

Hi, thanks Lynn. I'm just sitting down this weekend to get my thoughts sorted out. And to find my way around this site.

I am great! I just re-joined Weight Watchers and am really inspired by the new program.  It's REALLY appropriate for the way I like to eat :)

I feel the same as you Lynn, I can not wait to hear about your journey as well, keep your head up and let me know if I can support you in anyway!!!

Hi Lynn, I started on the old program on wednesday. So far so good. I gained back 25 out of 40 pounds and I am mad at myself. But, it's a new day so i'm going forward with a positive attitude. I've already planned out todays meals. I'm looking forward to the support on this blog. Times are tough so i'd rather not spend the money every week, but I do need the extra support.

Hi Lynn. Our stories are very similar! I agree with you about the new plan. I got all the new materials but just couldn't get into it eeither. I'm not sure what my plan is either right now. We can do this though!
