I am frustrated this morning. I am still not getting enough calories. It’s the first time in my life I have been through this particular problem. Going low-carb is great until you can’t figure out how to get enough calories without adding dairy or eating extra meat! My meals yesterday: Breakfast – egg & veggie … More Frustrations
One thing I wanted to do with this blog is review the diet plans that did and didn’t work for me in the past.

I wasn’t going to post this photo but what good is sharing my experience without being totally honest. So here I am, in all my out-of-shape glory. My starting weight yesterday was 185.6 lbs. My biggest ever. I am really looking forward to my next progress pic!
Total Weight Loss: 2 pounds I have to admit I am sore today from yesterday’s challenge workout, just not in the places I was expecting. It used to be that my muscles felt it the most, but this time it’s my joints and oddly, the back of my hands and the tops of my feet. … More Day 2 – Sore But Good

Today’s Weight: 179.4 I tried to write a post yesterday but it just didn’t seem organic; it felt forced. I guess it’s not important that I write everyday but instead when I feel the need. I have actually been doing fairly well, eating right and walking 10,000 steps a day with 30 minutes of that … More Getting Healthy – Mother’s Day
Today’s Weight: 179.4 Yesterday presented something that I have run into a lot when I start a diet – I feel so damn hungry! I do well in the mornings; it’s the afternoons that kill me. I got home from work yesterday, around 3:00 pm and I had an afternoon snack – veggies and hummus. … More Getting Healthy – Day 3 – Does Food=Science??
Today’s Weight: 180.6 So yesterday was my first full day of trying to get healthy and it actually went pretty well.

Honestly, this time around I think my weight gain … More Getting Healthy – Day 2
I am a 44-year-old woman that has fought with my weight my entire life. Since I was 18 years old, I have run anywhere between 138 and 183 pounds (I am 5’6″).
