Right steps, slow results

Hello, hello, hello. It’s been such a stressful week. It’s been good stress mixed with bad stress, but, unfortunately, there has been more bad stress. A couple people were laid off at work. And guess who gets to do their jobs? The copy desk. And guess who is also getting laid off sometime soon? TheContinue reading “Right steps, slow results”

Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited

Hello! I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow with my primary care physician. And for the first time ever, I am actually looking forward to it. I can’t wait for her to see how much weight I’ve lost. I’m still at 34 pounds, but it’s way less than what I weighed when I saw her inContinue reading “Heading to the doctor, and I’m actually excited”

Discouraged and encouraged, and then encouraged some more

Hello! I am feeling pretty good today. I am bruised from moving the freezer, but I am not really sore. I thought for sure I would be unable to move today after spending a few hours yesterday pushing and pulling a 50-million ton freezer. My knees, though, seem to have suffered the brunt of theContinue reading “Discouraged and encouraged, and then encouraged some more”

Finding the right balance

Howdy, folks. Guess what? I’m stuck on another weight loss plateau. I think that I need to readjust my routine yet again. When I started this in June, I decided to forego lunch and only eat dinner. That worked great for weight loss (and saving money), but apparently it affected my health otherwise. I hadContinue reading “Finding the right balance”

So many benefits of weight loss

Hey, all. I’ve lost more than 30 pounds with diet and exercise over a few months, and I have to say: I feel really great. When I weighed 230 pounds, I had a lot of problems: high blood pressure, my knees were making terrible noises, I had problems sleeping, I felt gross, I got windedContinue reading “So many benefits of weight loss”

Coincidences can be bizarre

Hello! First a quick update: I can’t remember the last weight I announced here, so if I’m repeating myself, I apologize. I have lost 32 pounds now. Also, yesterday I did yard work again, and I was not tired at all. It actually involved bending over quite a bit, which would have absolutely killed myContinue reading “Coincidences can be bizarre”

Food frustrations

Hey, everyone! I am having a fairly good day, though I’m a bit tired because it took me forever to fall asleep last night. My mind was going a mile a minute, likely because yesterday was my first day back at work after a nice, long vacation. So, I did gain two pounds over myContinue reading “Food frustrations”

Ready for a staycation

Howdy, folks. I’m wicked excited today! After my shift today, I have nine days off from work! Yayyyyyy! I have lots of plans, pretty much all of which involve being at home, of course. Well, I’ll start off by saying that I hit 29 pounds today. I am now 11 pounds away from my firstContinue reading “Ready for a staycation”

Finally, some progress

Hi! I’m really excited today. For the first time, I have finally noticed some progress with exercising. So, yesterday afternoon, I did some yard work. I trimmed a bunch of trees and took all of the branches from the bottom of the back yard up the hill to the road. I took about eight tripsContinue reading “Finally, some progress”

What a long weight wait

Finally. Finally finally finally. After TWO WEEKS at a weight-loss plateau, I FINALLY lost another pound. I am now at 26 pounds of weight lost. That was the most frustrating two weeks, I swear. So, after my skip day Monday due to getting bloodwork done then having a fever later, I got back into dieting/exerciseContinue reading “What a long weight wait”
