I want to start off by thanking everyone for their support and encouragement on my last blog! I haven't publicly talked about some of my journey before, and the responses were more than reassuring that I did the right thing by reaching out. ... Read more

I haven't blogged in a really LONG time, but it was time to share some of my success. I found this site in 2011 after weighing in at the doctor's office and realizing how out of control my weight had gotten. After lots of reading and finding e... Read more

Wednesday, October 12, 2011      11 comments

It's been a while since I've blogged. However, I have officially passed the 50 pounds lost mark! It's exciting! I haven't been working out like I should, which means the weight loss is slower, but I'm happy as long as the pounds keep dropping... Read more
N.E.W. Challenge for BLC
Friday, August 26, 2011      3 comments

So it's mid training-week for BLC and it's been a little crazy on that team. I'm still not 100% sure this is the challenge for me (so far it seems overwhelming with the way it's organized) and I normally have weekends off for exercise to spend ... Read more

I've been thinking about this blog for the last week, but I wanted to make sure I was serious before I wrote this out! As you may have noticed, I have been less active here on SP. I've still logged in, checked a few blogs, halfheartedly tracked... Read more

As of today it's been 2 weeks since I have really worked out. Fortunately even with my bad eating on the trip I've lost about 3 pounds in the last 2 weeks, so that's good! The eating healthy had come back pretty easily since being in civilizat... Read more

Holy cow did I just have the most incredible week. It started extra stressful because although I had planned everything down to a "t" MY flight was delayed. This meant that we had less time on the road and my friends had to pick up all the foo... Read more

I flopped on week 4 D1. Ok, maybe that's an overstatement, but that's how it feels. Thanks to everyone's great support (and the decision not to go to the pool at my MIL's) I got my get up on and got to the gym. First 3 minute segment went fin... Read more

Monday, July 18, 2011      13 comments

So I finished C25K week 3 on Friday which means today is the day to start week 4. It's entirely too hot outside, so I need to go to the new gym/indoor track if I'm going to do it. The problem is that I just don't want to! I don't know if it's... Read more
Take that, heat! (A victory blog)
Monday, July 11, 2011      8 comments

I knew I was in trouble yesterday when at 10 pm it was still super hot and muggy outside. I could either get up at 5am, or figure out something else for my run today. Well... not only did I not get up early, but I slept in! I woke to my phone... Read more
