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…

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…

Part of the issue of me not getting a routine post up is that, as I said in my last post, I fall into a YouTube hole, or I’m catching up on my other stories and since I only have one screen, I could only focus on one thing at a time. My stories usually win out and my adoring…

As with the past few of these posts, you’d be amazed at how many times I’ve tried to start a post and then fell into a Youtube hole and wind up closing the tab without writing a word. I’ve been hacking up a lung for two days now and seeing as it’s the weekend, what a better time to lock…

I’m going to be real with you guys. Part of my absence was because time just got away from me and all of a sudden it’s like 3 weeks and I haven’t put up an update. The other part was that October was not the greatest month on this journey for me. In total, I’ve lost 5.2 pounds for the…

In a small turn of events, I actually planned to not write a post for the week before last. I knew it wasn’t going to be the greatest weigh in and I really didn’t want to over exert myself. This is basically my only hobby and I haven’t done a GD thing this summer, obviously, I need a break. Anyway,…

If I’m being honest, I didn’t realize I missed last week’s update until this afternoon when my legion of fan (hey Libby!) asked for one and I was like wow, this is what Kim Kardashian must feel like. Anyway, my block party* was two weeks ago. *i’m not sure if this is regional and/or if i’ve explained this before, but…

I know I just posted an update, but here’s another one. After my point heavy birthday weekend, I am pleased to report that I was able to lose a half of a pound. Was I disappointed when I weighed myself? Yea, I was hoping for one of those freak 3 pound weight losses that sometimes come with eating a little…

Now that my birthday has come and gone, I could tell you that I didn’t hit 31 for 31. Instead, I hit 32 pounds! I’m being kind of cavalier with my finger guns and semantics, especially since I weighed in before my birthday weekend. My birthday was very nice, thanks for asking. Anyway, 32 pounds. My mind is constantly blown.…
