About Me

I am a proud wife and mother of 3 girls, 2 dogs, & 3 cats. I lost my job last year, due to budget cuts in education. I feel sick over the loss. I have decided to overcome my depression and weight gain, by turning my life around. First item - weight loss. I want to feel better, have more energy, see my kids grow up and meet my grand-kids. I don't want to be embarrassed about my size, if I don't get the job, I don't want to wonder - Is it because I am fat? I want to find me.


I'm glad you stopped by, and hope you find some connection or a bit of enjoyment in my musings of uncovering my true self; a lighter, happier, mother and wife. Leave a comment, support the sponsors, follow my blog, but most of all, be inspired and know you are not alone!

Day 64 - Weigh In

250 lbs ... Well actually 249.5, but I like to follow the mathematical laws when rounding...  lol...

That was an awesome feeling!  Our scale is one of those doctor's office ones, with the height bracket and the sliding weights at the top.  I slid it over to 250, ready to add more pounds with the smaller slide...but it sunk.  I didn't weigh enough to start with 250!  WOO - HOO!!!  I dropped it to 200, then added the pounds with the top row...Yes, I had to go almost the whole way to 50...but I got to stop it at 49.5...I was thrilled, and it motivated me to get my a$$ on the treadmill!  I walked for 35 minutes and did 15 minutes of weights/abs.  I feel good.


  1. Awesome victory! Congrats! I remember when I broke out of the 190's, I was so excited! But now I have been stuck hovering around 188 for some time. Luckily, I am finding my motivation again! Keep up the hard work, it's paying off! :o)

  2. Thanks for your kind words! I am doing great with my food choices, which I thought was going to be the hard part...but I lack the motivation to exercise...I gotta figure something out. I know I'm dropping weight now, due to my food choices, but that will eventually taper off and I'm going to have to start burning more calories! So frustrated with myself right now...

  3. Isn't that a great feeling when you don't have to slide the slider UP! haha. Thanks for joining my blog hop, I hope to see you next week!
