No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I have not made that Dr appointment. Actually I have only been to a Dr once in the last 2 years. I was not raised to go regularly and frankly I don't really want to face that scale number. Isn't that insane? I know what it is, but it feels like if I go, my weight gain isn't my own dirty little secret. That I am a failure. That the Doc will think it is simply a case of overeating not something more serious. I wonder if I could go to…Continue
Well, its been a bumpy road back in the saddle. All intentions of restarting May 1 fell by the wayside with the unexpected death of my step-father and the crazy aftermath with step-siblings. Soooo crazy. But behind me know.
Was suppose to start back walking yesterday, but the rain and a sinus infection pushed us to today.
Still have the sinus infection, can't breath - but I was determined to go walk with my walking buddy who has been patiently waiting for me. Even though…Continue
Another week down. Another 0.2 pounds gone. Nothing to write home about, but considering that I thought I might gain this week, I'll take it. I had way more important things than the scale going on this week :)
Things I am proud of this week:
1. I ran my first ever 5k!
2. I saw several pictures of myself this week with no double chin! I have always had (and will probably always have) a…Continue
Day three of blogtolose.
Went for a walk with my sister this morning before it got too hot outside. We went to starbucks and picked up some ice tea and had a nice chat on the way back home. Gym tonight after work! Yay upper body day! Also, had to put new posts up on Rachel Rebelling. 2 blogs are a lot to keep up with. It's a good thing that I have a sassy mouth and a lot to say.
I'm seriously struggling with the eating part of this. All I want is some mother…Continue
This weekend was CRAZY! It was good, but busy and this is the first time I'm getting to get on the computer since Friday. Friday night I went to A.J.'s, then we headed to my parent's house for my sister's birthday. Sunday morning we went on a 5 mile hike on a trail near us. Very tiring! Good exercise though. :) Later that afternoon we went to the winery my sister wanted to go to for her birthday. I love winery atmospheres. It's like the world just slows down a little. So peaceful! After the…Continue

I am going to try to make this far from dramatic and tearful as I do not seek pity nor will I sit here and play the victim. Growing up I was extremely athletic attending competitive cheerleading and gymnastic practices literally 6 days a week for about 2-3 hours each day. Having been able to eat literally whatever I wanted and constantly saying “I don’t understand why people struggle with weight. I eat how I please and stay fit” I found myself in that youthful teenage girl state where my one…Continue
Good morning! Today my husband Scott and I celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary!!! We also like to celebrate the fact that we've been together for 16 years this month! We actually had a date Friday night so tonight we are just going to make dinner at home. Wednesday we both have the day off so we will do something special together. I'm very grateful for him, he is a great role model when it comes to fitness. I wish I had the dedication and the motivation that he has! He is in the…Continue
I am new here and am hoping to meet others with the same weightloss fitness goals. I am a 40 something year old working mom of 3/wife with a desk job living trying to keep my head above water most days and not collapse in this rat race also know as the DMV area. My day starts at 4:15 a.m. with a 1 hour and 20 minute average each way commute into the DC Metro area. I am desperately trying to find the time to maintain my health physical/mental and balance everything else life…Continue
So I had surgery last week and it threw me into a funk. But now Im ready to begin. I currently weigh 172 lbs but Im thinking about throwing my scale away...Ive been so obsessed with the number and not really how Im doing it so I want to change that now!! I have been binging and that definatly not the way to go. I was feeling really down and then I logged on here from my desktop not my phone and I was my pics. I have done an amazing job since June 2011 when this all began and I plan to…Continue
Wow... 2.5 years since I blogged on here... time flies!! Update: I have lost about 30 pounds over the last year and am feeling good, but losing some motivation. Saturday was the anniversary of my final decision to lose weight or die trying, so I am embarking on year 2 with a new goal. I want to lose 45lbs this year, by May 2014. TOTALLY ACHIEVABLE!! For all those of my blog friends who are reading this... you can do it to!! Let's cheer each other on! I know I need all the support I can get.…Continue
You know what that stands for - something someone would only say at the end of the day on Sunday.....
This weekend was fun! I brought a bunch of work home to grade and didn't touch any of it. Proud of myself but I'm sure I'll pay for it this week trying to get caught up!
Friday night we stayed home. I was beat from the week and husband wanted to go out and do something but I ended up crashing at like 11pm. Lame but well rested.
Saturday I finished a book in the morning…Continue
Ran another half marathon. 2 hours 12 min. 2 min slower than my PR. Oh well. At least I was 10 min faster than the last run I did.
I don't know how I did, but I did Insanity today. Now my body hurts a lot!
I ate horribly all of last week starting Monday. I did eat extra badly 2 days before the race. Anyways, thankfully I feel much less bloated after the run and am back to eating healthily.
I don't really have any serious races to train up for so I'm gonna be a little…Continue
This time around the weight loss has been slow and steady. I'm okay with 2 pounds a week as long as I know I am making the right choices for myself to get to a healthier weight. I know this week I could've been more diligent with my food choices, but I did what I was comfortable with. Being overwhelmed with a drastic life change produces results, but as I have proven to myself, they are temporary results. We always go back to the place of comfort. The place where we feel at home.…Continue
It's only 1030am and its hotter than the devil's balls here in California. All I want to do is lay around with no pants on and be a bum, however, that will do nothing for my actual bum and thighs so I guess I have to get up and go out into the sauna. Does just going outside in the heat count as a workout? I think it should.
I had a green smoothie for breakyfast this morning and it was dalish. I think it will be part of the new morning routine..yay for my nutribullet. Gawd I…Continue
Turns out, brunch today wasn't the best idea ever, and for the wrong reasons... We were there at 10:30, and I've not eaten that much (mostly pasta salad and couscous, but also fruit and cake, because, well, cake!) I was full afterwards, but not like I was going to explode, which would have been "normal" for me. It was still early when we've left, 11:45 or so, not that late, so we've gone for a walk at the park.
Now, we've been home for a few hours and I've been hungry for what feels…Continue
I have gained weight over the last year. Not to state my diet is perfect but most days I do eat well and I exercise 6 days a week. After a road trip to Florida in March, I got home and was horrified. I had "swelled" from the waist down. My husband described it as "looking like the Michelin Tire Man" and was concerned. I have experienced swelling in my ankles for some time but attributed it sodium and old age. After 3 or 4 days I was back to…Continue
Check a 5k off my list of lifetime goals. It is complete! We had a great girls weekend and really enjoyed ourselves. Us three girls drove 2 hours to Columbus last night and stayed in a hotel. Unfortunately, I slept horribly. I just don't do well in hotel rooms, I was excited about the race, and worried I was keeping the other girls up. I remember looking at the clock and just wishing it would be 6:30 so we could get up.
Here we are before the race began (I'm in the middle,…Continue
Hi! I'm new to this and looking for some buddies to support and motivate on this crazy journey to a rockin body. I have struggled with my weight my whole life and at my heaviest i weighed 205 lbs.

I have been recently diagnosed with depression and anxiety and am trying to turn my life around and be a happier healthier person! 21 years young, just graduated from beauty school..waxing and makeup are my passions. I also suffer from a severe case…Continue
