Starting again. Again.

We are both unemployed... entertaining ourselves by watching lots of free DVDs from the library, cooking and eating. I lost almost 30 pounds by last November, so that I could feel fit for our amazing trip to Vietnam. I got back, and ... Read more
If I'm not eating, I'm SHOPPING.

I have convinced myself to return to logging. I haven't been perfect, but at least I am again somewhat motivated to actually LOOK at what all I'm doing. In that spirit, I thought I might share my latest obsessive behavior: buying "quick-dr... Read more
The arrival of the Pump.

Ok, ok, been a little bit lax about SparkPeople lately. I started my new insulin pump! I should have blogged about it right away, so that I would have sounded more excited. Anyway, I'm going to (sort of) blame it for my lack of activity on... Read more

After much run-around, my new insulin PUMP (in blue) is coming on Thursday! Anything new is somehow big and scary. I've been slightly emotional about it, but mostly due to the aforementioned run-around. There were SIX different parties all ... Read more

I've been feeling so tired for the last few days. Yesterday at work I nodded off during my break, and I could barely wake up this morning! I literally could not keep my eyes open. My blood sugar has been all wonky, I know this is a contrib... Read more

I am slowly chipping away at the weight. I only lost one pound this week, but, I LOST ONE POUND! I'm trying to be excited that there is still progress. This is much better than a standstill. I went to the diabetes educator yesterday to lea... Read more

I was really excited last Friday that I'd broken the 200 mark and gone down to 199-point-something, and then I had my period this weekend. I gained weight, of course, over the last few days, but the TOM usually ends on Sunday, so I figured my we... Read more

It's not quite official (because it's not yet weigh-in day), but I just broke the 200 mark!! I am going on the Animas 2020 pump in the next two weeks. According to the Dr's office scale I've only lost 12 pounds, but I figure I was wearing ... Read more

WHY is it, that I can weigh myself every DAY (even though I'm not supposed to do that) but the weight stays the same every morning until WEIGH-IN DAY? Does this make sense? I finally lost 1.4 pounds. I made it past 203! In retrospect, I sup... Read more
No more "free" carrot sticks.

I've decided a few things: I'd rather push myself to exercise more than deny myself the food that I want to eat. I never had a problem with eating healthy. I just ate too much, and didn't exercise. It worked for about 6 weeks to cut m... Read more
Unmotivated and Slow.

I guess I've hit a plateau... and I get so frustrated when I feel like I've been working hard and nothing shows. I still exercised today--more than my tracker said to, in fact, and then I went and messed it up by drinking beer. I just want... Read more

Family in town this week. And I have had to play hostess. I don't like it. My weight keeps fluctuating back up above last week's weigh-in number... I can't seem to stop cheating--meaning that I keep weighing myself, which is only setting m... Read more

Today I did 35 minutes on the elliptical and sort of *tried* to walk on the treadmill for 25. Man, I feel like an IDIOT on the treadmill! I was all over the place. Every time I got distracted--even a little bit--I lost my balance. And then when ... Read more
HELP! (I momentarily fell off the wagon)

Yesterday I missed W6D2 of my running program. My little brother bought a new house, and I was enlisted to do manual labor and help with the move-in. For the last two days I ate kind of badly, didn't keep track of my blood sugar, and didn't go r... Read more

I think i LIKE doing push-ups! Now that I've discovered I can actually do one. I was watching the terrible excuses for push-ups on "The Biggest Loser" and thought, I can do better than that! I forgot to count how many I did last night... ... Read more
