A NEW BEGINNING
Monday, October 20, 2008      2 comments

Now that I'm well on the road to recovering from my surgery I think it's time to get my act together. Enough of eating everything in sight. I can't exercise yet other than walking, but I can watch what I eat. So I talked to my sister last night... Read more
RECOVERING
Saturday, October 04, 2008      1 comments

I feel like I'm living in some kind of surreal world. After all the years of pain that I've gone through, I can't believe I've finally had a hysterectomy. I don't think the full impact of what has happened to me will hit for a while, right now I... Read more

This is the stage I have been at for so long. I have been stuck between 155 and 150 since June. Can you believe it???I have been exercising and maintaining my weight, but not losing. I am trying to just break through that 150 lb barrier. Hopefu... Read more
DELICIOUS!
Thursday, April 17, 2008      2 comments

I started eating clean (no added sauces, sugars and simple carbs) a couple of weeks ago. I am really hoping this will be just what I need in order to reach my goal weight. I was getting very lazy about what I ate and just couldn't seem to drop a... Read more

Wow, it's been a really long time since I posted anything. March was a tough month for me - too many injuries and illnesses. I am really hoping that April will be a huge improvement. I have had to stop running due to my plantar fasciitis. ... Read more
DOG ATTACK!
Tuesday, February 19, 2008      4 comments

I finally got out for a run today. I decided to run outside and discovered that my foot doesn't hurt when I run outside, I guess because I am not pushing myself as hard as I do on the treadmill. My regular route has always been down to the river... Read more

Today marks the one year anniversary of when I discovered Spark People. I am sitting here 38 pounds lighter and feeling fabulous. In the last year I have changed from being a couch potato to being an active person who actually looks forward to a... Read more
SHARES IN THE COMPANY
Friday, January 25, 2008      2 comments

I am seriously thinking that after all the money I put into this product, Tylenol really should just offer me shares in their company. These little pink pills are what gets me through these days each month. So, thank you Tylenol - you've saved ... Read more

HONESTLY - IT'S BEEN A STRUGGLE
Sunday, January 13, 2008      7 comments

Okay, so the last few days have been horrendous for me. I came home from work on Friday and just started eating. I didn't care what I ate, I just wanted to eat. Not such a great way to start off the weekend. Saturday I did fine until the afterno... Read more
WORKING ON MY TIME
Friday, January 04, 2008      5 comments

I ran another 10k this morning and knocked 3 minutes off my original time, coming in at 62:50. I will probably run 10k just on weekends now, it is too much to do on a work day. But I will be running 5k's including doing hill work on weekdays. I ... Read more
