April Weigh-In Results and Workout Progress Report – And March Too!

April 5, 2017

March came and went and I never published my weigh-in results. I’m not exactly sure what happened – I updated my chart and prepped the post, I just never got around to writing it. Between my travels and race recaps, it must have slipped between the cracks.

Oh well, I’ll catch up with this post, and do the reports for both months. First, let’s take a look at my weight loss chart: Read the rest of this entry »


3WAYS2 Rethink Your New Year’s Weight Loss Resolutions… So You Stick With ‘Em All Year Long!

January 9, 2017

New Year’s resolutions are a big deal, and so many of them involve losing weight. Self-improvement is always something I can get behind!

It’s the ninth day of the year, and unfortunately, studies have shown that by the end of two weeks (only five days from now!), nearly one-third of all New Year’s resolutions will have already been abandoned. And GUESS WHAT? I don’t want you to give up on your resolutions!

With that in mind, I put together three ways you can rethink or reframe your weight loss resolutions.  Read the rest of this entry »

It’s the final month of the year! There’ll be lots of updates in this post, but first, a couple photos from this weekend. On Sunday, I found myself in one of my all-time favorite places… on the roof of a skyscraper!

October 9, 2016

My recent race and trip to New York made for exciting blog posts, but it also delayed my monthly weigh-in update. And I’m going to delay it a few paragraphs longer, so I can share a couple photos from Six Flags!

September Weigh-In and Workout Progress Report

September 1, 2016

Before I start with the scale, charts, data and all that, here’s how I’ve been spending 30-minute chunks of time, two or three times a day:

I mentioned at the end of my last post that my foot was starting to bother me, and what I really should’ve said was that it was bothering me a whole lot. It’s painful all the time and it hurts to Read the rest of this entry »


Memories, Memories: The Tale of a Suit

August 24, 2016

Facebook reminded me the other day that it’s been six years since I first cleaned out my closet of clothes I could no longer wear. Clothes are a wonderful signifier of weight loss success: it’s an awesome feeling when clothes start feeling looser, or you can start using a new hole in your belt, or fit into something you couldn’t before. Six years ago, I was well into my weight loss, having shed a little over 100 pounds, and you can imagine how good it felt to set aside all the clothes that I had shrunk out of. They covered my entire bed!
