martina is losing it # 26

How is it that it’s been over a month since my last general post and even longer since my last weight loss post? I could say I’ve been busy, which, if you don’t look at what I’m doing Monday- Friday from 9a-5p () and only at the weekends, it’s an accurate statement. But it’s not an excuse. I didn’t have…

to martina on her (32nd) birthday

I turn 32 today. I feel like I’m 8. I act like I’m 12. I’ve talked about this before, but it’s my birthday so I make the rules. When I was in first grade, we had journals that we were given a prompt to write about every day. Usually just a sentence or two and a small illustration. I remember…

Here I am again and this time I’m prepared. I checked my last post to see where I left off. I usually just guess and hope I’m not repeating myself, which would be nothing new. When we last spoke, I had briefly hit the 80-pound mark. Last Thursweigh brought a 1.5-pound loss so we’re back in the 80-pound range and…

It’s been over a month since I last updated. Cool. Totally on top of things over here. Well, I hit the 80 pound mark. That was last week. This week I gained 1.4 back. (edit: I re-weighed myself this morning, just in case it was a fluke. i was up AGAIN. so, i’m going to try my hardest to reign…

martina is losing it #22

I’m writing this on Easter Sunday, about 3ish weeks since my last update. I’d say that’s nothing short of a miracle. April has not been the best month, it’s been pretty shitty, frankly. I had two very little losses and one big 1.3 lbs – which is big for me) gain. A loss is a loss, as I find myself…

one year down

A year ago today I embarked on what I could only describe as a whirlwind journey. Which feels weird to say because I didn’t get married or become a mom and everyone says those are the big ones. Those are the whirlwinds. Those people must not have lost almost 80 pounds in a year. BUT I DIGRESS. I’ve learned more…

….aaand we’re back. Hello? Is this thing on? It’s been so long I’ve almost forgotten how to do any of this. But we’re here and we are thriving. I know that when blogs that aren’t weight loss blogs (or that are, whatever) don’t give an update in a while, it usually means the writer/loser had fallen off the wagon or…

martina is losing it #21

I checked and the last time I posted an(ything) update was February 8th. How do the weeks go so fast? The concept of time is fascinating when you think about it. So I try not to think about it. February wasn’t a terrible month. It could have been muuuuch better but, as we all know, it could have been muuuuch…

martina is losing it #20

I know, it’s been forever since I last updated everyone. Unless you saw my latest instagram post. If you did, then just act surprised. Three weigh-ins ago, I lost 4.1 pounds, which at the time put me at 70 pounds down. Like, 70 on the nose. I know, crazy. I was guardedly optimistic. I’m still in awe of it all…
