My goal is to fit in an airplane seat comfortably.

I have never been so mortified in my life. About a month ago I was flying home to visit family. They upgraded me to an exit row seat. The exit row seats are single seats that have hard sides. I could barely fit and I struggled for 10 minutes trying to get my seatbelt done up. I asked for an extender but that meant I had to move and swap seats with someone. I have anxiety so […]

My story (from 335ish to 180 lbs. and everywhere in between) plus the tips that worked for me

I’ve been wanting to share my story and tips, but I’ve been fairly shy about it because, really, who am I? I’m no nutritionist or personal trainer or medical professional of any kind. However, I am someone who has weighed in at more than 330 pounds at one point and have lost large amounts of weight more than once. I hope that sharing can help someone stay on track or finally start living a better, happier life […]

I had a standoff with a King Size chocolate bar. And I won.

This is irredeemably stupid and possibly pathetic, but I have to get this out. I’ve been making steady progress with my weight loss, and even though I’ve had a few slip ups, I’m still on a healthy track to my goal. I have a major sweet tooth, always had one, always will, and instead of depriving myself I’ve made sure to leave space in my calorie count for a treat should I ever want one. Usually they’ll […]

Been working out and dieting for 9 weeks now. Was feeling discouraged until this happened…

I’m currently 5’7″ and 180 lbs (since 2 weeks ago. I haven’t checked since. You’ll see why.) I’ve been working out since June 19. I keep weighing myself and looking at the mirror and seeing zero change. I was feeling so discouraged. Yesterday, I went to the mall to help a friend shop for wedding clothes. We ended up stepping into Express. One of the cute cashiers there comes up to me and he says, “You’ve lost […]

SV/Made it to One-derland finally! And a surprise….

Finally made it to one-derland today. It’s been 18 years since I was in this territory, since I was in my mid 20s. It’s 82 lbs down and gone and 8 months of the hardest damn work I’ve ever done in my life. Miles and miles of riding my bike to and from work, walking day after day in the sun at lunch, swimming hours laps on weekends. Dog knows I’ve put in the sweat and tears […]

Under 300 for the first time in over 5 years!

I did it!!!! I hit my first goal on the way to a healthy body! Its been almost two years of battling with myself but I finally hunkered down and just did it! This post is a bit disjointed as most of this is just what’s going through my head about the last few months. Sorry if it’s hard to follow lol. It’s more a collection of thoughts than anything else. A lot of people will tell […]

What an Amazing Feeling

I thought I felt really good when I took my daughter to her doctor’s appointment and the nurse that hadn’t seen me in over a year called out all excitedly, ‘HEY SKINNY MINNIE!’ and proceeded to gush over how good I was looking. And, like, that really did feel really good. Amazing, actually. But then I had to go to renew my license today. I was already excited, because it’s been saying 200 for years…even when I […]

I went to the gym today for the first time in 3 years.

About 3 years ago, I started dating my SO. Before then, I was walking about 6 miles per day, worked as a server/bartender (lifting ~25lbs per day) and weighed ~130lbs. As most couples do, you stay in, binge Netflix, order in pizza. SO had a car, so I no longer walked to work. I’m also a huge gamer so I spent my off days gaming in front of the tv. About a year ago, I got an […]
