27th April 2015 | 0 Comments

I am committed to making this work. But I am afraid that my knee pain will kick in and make this activity a living Hell. My new relationship with fitness is a month old. If this was a love affair I would be cautious. I wouldn’t call it a “real relationship” yet. I would wait [...]

312.2 LBS How could this be? I weighed 324.8 pounds three weeks ago. I sat on the floor and looked at my weight scale. I turned it over, checked the new battery, calibrated it per the instructions. I cautiously step back on the scale and there it is again. Like Magic. I am shocked, pleased [...]

Good morning! I have to go to the gym. I have no choice, I have an appointment and someone who believes in me is paying for it. This is a good thing or I sure would be keeping my sorry ass in the bed this morning. It was a late night. No, I wasn’t partying! [...]

I’m calling him “No-More-Mister-Nice-Guy” Jeremy because he is making me work my patootie off. He’s always smiling and ever so gentle as he pushes me to go further than I thought possible. And I’m [...]

8th November 2010 | 5 Comments

It was a good day. I did okay food wise. But my real accomplishment was the exercise. Funny thing, right after I wrote last night’s post I went into the kitchen and was about to finish off some left over quesadillas from the fridge… Oops!


The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Backsliding & Baby-steps.

26th September 2010 | 4 Comments

September has not been a stellar month for my permanent lifestyle change efforts. In one aspect it has been a good month because I have been very busy performing – which translates to physical activity – dancing and movement onstage, walking up and down stairs to and from my apartment to go to work.
