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…

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…

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…

Christmas is the season of miracles. If it wasn’t, Hallmark wouldn’t be able to crank out the canon of movies it does every year. Maybe it was one of those Christmas miracles or some Santa magic or someone upstairs was looking out for me when I stepped on the scale this Thursweigh because I lost 4.2 pounds. I LOST 4.2…

When we last spoke, I said that I was 1.9 pounds away from 60 pounds down. That Thursweigh, I lost 3.3 pounds, making my total amount lost 61.4. The following week, I had a teeny tiny gain (.2lbs), but still leaving me in the 61 range. As of my last weigh in, which was a tiny loss, I’m down 61.9…

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…

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…

I have some good news and I have some “bad” news. The good news is that I lost another 1.1 lbs this week, which makes my total lost 47.6 lbs. So that’s good. The “bad” news is that I didn’t make it into the next decade. I’m so close that I would bet if I weighed myself tomorrow morning, I’d…

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…
