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…

When did I last post an update? Yea, I can’t remember either. And yea, I’m too lazy to check. I’m still here, still eating and tracking. I vaguely remember mentioning that I had gained .7 pounds and that it was fine. So we’ll go from there. The following week I lost 1.1 pounds. Back in the saddle, right? WRONG. As…

If there’s one thing I have enjoyed during this weight loss journey, it’s comparing the weight I’ve lost to actual things in the real world. Short of piling pounds of fat into a Radio Flyer wagon and pulling it around with me, a la Oprah, this gives me a way to almost make my weight loss tangible. It also puts…

Ok, this is going to be a quick update because I’m at work & on my phone, with my boss right next to me and I don’t want to go on the computer because he’s the type to ask questions and if I don’t do this now, I probably won’t later… How’s that for a run on sentence? Anyway, last…

With another Thursweigh on the horizon, I thought I should come on here and quickly update on last week’s results. As of last week, I’m down 29.5 pounds! This week, I cheated and hopped on the scale. I don’t really like to do that because if the number is higher, then I’ll stress until Thursday and be all mopey about…

As I’m writing this, it’s still Thursweigh so it still counts. It’s been three weeks since my last update; my middle name is OnTheBall. I’m going to make this pretty quick (3582 words later…) and painless. The long and short of it is I am officially down 26.5 pounds! lolwut. It’s very surreal and hard to accept. I still feel…

If you’re reading this as soon as it went up (as you should), it’s Monday, but as I write it, it’s Thursday, or Thursweigh, as I’ve renamed it. So let’s keep that in mind as I ramble on. This whole week leading up to my weigh-in, I felt like nothing was happening. I had convinced myself that I didn’t lose…

I know I insinuated that I’d be back soon with my favorite food/recipe blogs and weight loss updates. I also know that I said that going on three weeks ago. Either way, here I am, ready to share and update. No recipes though; I’m still tweaking the list. As of last Thursday, I am down 18.5 pounds! Two weigh-ins ago…
