Fall is my favorite season

And with it comes being busy! The last month has been pretty crazy with work and friends and family, and it seems like it won't be letting up until after the holidays.

It's so hard to eat and be healthy this time of year. I want all my favorite comfort foods, and all the family favorites, along with work potlucks and parties. It seems like it never stops.

I haven't weighed myself in a week because I know the number will be going up. Haven't been eating right, or exercising like I should. Although the romp around the corn maze last night was some good exercise, and fun too! Too bad one of the people we went with was such a

I'm supposed to go to a party today that I really just don't feel like going to. I'm wondering if I can think up a good enough excuse, or maybe I'll just stop by for 10-15 minutes and say I have somewhere else to go.

I gave myself a french manicure today, it didn't turn out half bad, but I do need some practice! I really need to start cleaning my apartment, it's seriously nasty. I think if I kept the place cleaner, it would be easier for me to eat healthy and exercise because I wouldn't feel like a slob.

Thanks again for the encouraging words. :)

Finally getting better!

Wow, so I was sick for like an entire week! No fun, no fun at all, although I did loose a few pounds! I guess that's what barely eating will do, of course that's not healthy. But when you're sick, about all you can handle is tea and egg drop soup.

I'm feeling good enough I might treat myself to a Lush bath tonight, maybe something cocktailed with the butterball I have. I need to resist the temptation I have to go to taco bell.

And thanks for the comments/emails, I appreciate them and the encouragement!

Being sick sucks

So being sick and having a cold sucks. But at least I got to leave work early. Bad eating though. Made some healthy soup, which means I can eat good food for the next few days. Bed soon, hope I can sleep better than last night.

"I just need to start caring about myself"

So here I am, watching 'The Biggest Loser' and the quote above just caught me. It's what I need to be doing. I'm fat. I'M FAT. Not chubby, not chunky, but fat. 317 pounds of it. I remember crying when I went over 200 pounds, swearing I would get below and never go over it again. Now here I am.

My goal is simple. And incredibly difficult. Lose the weight, get to a healthy body shape. Over the last nine months, I lost 13 pounds. I paid almost $3,000 to lost 20, and gained seven of them back already. I know why, I quit exercising, and I quit eating healthy. I don't want to slide back and gain even more weight.

I know I can do it, but I know it will be hard. Today wasn't the best food day. But tomorrow will be better. It has to be. For me and my body and my mind.

Here goes, posting this out on the big bad world wide web. Even if no one reads it, I know it's there.
