BLC 13 - The Beginning
Saturday, May 08, 2010      1 comments

I joined the biggest loser for two main reasons: accountability, and companionship. SP is a big place, and without small groups of people, it really feels like you may as well be typing to no one. I have been away from SP for so long because of ... Read more
A Flury of Things
Tuesday, April 27, 2010      2 comments

I have been wandering aimlessly in the weight-loss race for a while now. Before I started Biggest Loser at my school, I was just sorta maintaining, not keeping an eye on what I ate, not exercising, just trying to spend some of my winter break re... Read more

Thursday, April 22, 2010      1 comments

Since August, when I moved back home from my stint on campus over the summer, until January 1st, I gained 8 pounds. It doesn't seem like a lot, but that was only 4 months. That means I might have gained as much as 24 pounds last year if I h... Read more
The final few
Monday, August 03, 2009      0 comments

So apparently my plateau has not passed. This is a little frustrating, but not entirely unexpected. I went so long with steady results that it was bound to happen. Because I have been eating out, it has been hard for me to track my calories... Read more
Today is a big day
Tuesday, July 07, 2009      2 comments

Today, I am 50 pounds lighter than where I started this year. I am trying to reflect on what 50 pounds really means, and I've got to tell you that I'm drawing a blank. Sure I feel different, but do I feel different because I have adopted a ... Read more
The first plateu

Today I posted my first week of just maintaining my weight loss. I suppose I knew this would happen, but it is still kinda upsetting. I knew the scale wasn't moving this week, and yet I was still hopeful about this morning. My stomach has been... Read more
Chinese Food is the Devil
Tuesday, June 16, 2009      3 comments

So, I ate over my calories today. This is the first time this has happened (to the best of my knowledge) since I started tracking in February. This upsets me. I was faced with mountains of chinese food and I just couldn't resist. I ate very... Read more
W1D3 finished, but...
Monday, June 15, 2009      0 comments

So today I successfully completed my first week of the couch to 5k program. I am happy that I didn't give up. I don't know why the thought of giving up never entered my brain on the first day, but ever since then it has been hard to keep going... Read more
Engagement Pitures, Spanish, and c25k
Sunday, June 14, 2009      1 comments

Today, I spent a long time going through engagement photos. It was really awesome to see us having so much fun together, but it was also very depressing to see how large we really are. I know FH was feeling this way, too, because he kept mention... Read more

I joined the President's Challenge on May 5th, 2009. Today, June 13th I logged my activity from yesterday, which completed this challenge. I joined the challenge in order to motivate myself to be physically active at least 30 minutes each day, 5... Read more
Sometimes things are strange

Today is the first day in a long while that I cannot get full. I ate at Chipotle for lunch. I admit that I usually get a burrito instead of a bowl, but even when I was eating way more I left feeling like I was going to explode without fail.... Read more
Transition to Stage 3
Friday, May 22, 2009      3 comments

Last night I decided that enough is enough with stage 2. I was in the 5 week stage for 13 weeks! That's not the sign of someone who is serious about her weight loss. Initially, I was so overwhelmed with the whole program that I was going to wait... Read more

What a week
Friday, April 03, 2009      1 comments

This week has been full of ups and downs in my personal life and my weight-loss efforts. I spent most of the week feeling like a failure. I had not weighed myself properly--in the morning, with light clothing, as all of my other recorded we... Read more

I was adding my breakfast to my nutritional tracker today and up pops this! Can you believe it?! What a horrible thing to put on a site for people trying to lose weight. I ... Read more
