Weigh in day 9/13/13 -.2 lbs, 58.8lbs down 31.2 lbs to go

I am once again thrilled with this weigh in….not because I lost a stellar amount of weight but because I got my monthly visitor on Thursday which means that despite the typical weight gain( usually 2+lbs) with my monthly visitor I still managed to drop a very little bit of weight.   A great accomplishmentContinue reading “Weigh in day 9/13/13 -.2 lbs, 58.8lbs down 31.2 lbs to go”

Weigh in Day 9/6/13 -1.2 lbs, 58.6 lbs down 31.4lbs to go

I am both surprised and thrilled with this loss… the week was surprisingly hard but I think that the extra hike on Monday really helped me balance all the weirdness that happened throughout the rest of the week.  Tuesday Morning I couldn’t get up early and work out, not for lack of desire but IContinue reading “Weigh in Day 9/6/13 -1.2 lbs, 58.6 lbs down 31.4lbs to go”

Weigh in Day 8/30/13 – No Change

I guess after losing that weight I gained back, I can’t be too surprised by not losing anything this week.  I am also not all that concerned, it was a crazy week at work and I am just glad I didn’t eat my stress which I normally would do.  I kept to working out onContinue reading “Weigh in Day 8/30/13 – No Change”

Catching up – 2 posts in 1. Weigh in and my 8/17/13 hike

It has been a weird and crazy couple of weeks, as a result I have been very neglectful to my blog so I am going to catch it up with this combined post. I have been fighting really hard to not give in to my bad eating habits and it paid off….I managed to takeContinue reading “Catching up – 2 posts in 1. Weigh in and my 8/17/13 hike”

To confess or not to confess…. The stress of the weigh in….UGH

I have been decidedly not talking about my weight loss journey and as you can probably guess, for all the bad reasons no one ever wants to talk about it. ….It is not going well. I want to say that I have been hard-core, and kinda I have been but at the same time IContinue reading “To confess or not to confess…. The stress of the weigh in….UGH”

Weigh in day 7/26/13 +.6, 56.8lbs down 33.2 left to go

This small gain is not a surprise to me and I am not overly concerned about it.  With my inability to exercise for almost two weeks and break from counting calories last week, I am surprised it wasn’t more.  I will take this little gift and turn it into a challenge for my weigh inContinue reading “Weigh in day 7/26/13 +.6, 56.8lbs down 33.2 left to go”

Healing Hike – Deer Creek Canyon, my home away from home 7/20/13

I have learned so many big lessons these past 2 weeks, most I don’t ever want to talk about.  The big word I want to focus on is I LEARNED a lot last week…. outside of those things I never want to talk about here, I did learn that while Aaron and I can sitContinue reading “Healing Hike – Deer Creek Canyon, my home away from home 7/20/13”

Weigh in Day 6/28/13 -1.8lbs, 57lbs down 33 to go.

I am THRILLED.  I was just hoping for a maintain but to get this type of loss, well I can say it was so much more than I could have imagined. As it is probably obvious, I am late in posting my weigh in and that’s because we are on vacation.  This is our favoriteContinue reading “Weigh in Day 6/28/13 -1.8lbs, 57lbs down 33 to go.”

Weigh in Day 6/21/13 -1lb, 55.2 lbs down- 34.8 left to go

I was pretty thrilled with my loss this week especially since I was so sore from Saturday’s hike that I was essentially a slug on Sunday. This has been a transformative week for me as our hike this past weekend really made me break through a wall I have let creep up over time.  TheContinue reading “Weigh in Day 6/21/13 -1lb, 55.2 lbs down- 34.8 left to go”

Weigh in day 6/14/13 No Change….

I am OK with this no change.  It was a tough week in terms of staying on track so in and of itself, not gaining is a win. Colorado has again been racked by wildfires and the devastation is staggering.  There is so much beauty here and seeing it lost in a matter of daysContinue reading “Weigh in day 6/14/13 No Change….”
