  • I Keep Forgetting

    I had a plumber working in my house the other day. Young guy, mid-20s, mentioned he's a single dad, sounded like there is plenty of drama in his life. Nice, funny, hard working. Boy, was that poor kid fat. I felt so bad because it was a physical job ...

  • It's The Great Pumpkin Butt Charlie Brown!

    I joined MFP in Fall of 2014.  It was the FIRST time that I had successfully lost weight.  I didn’t use any  supplements, weight loss programs or  gimmicks.  It was just me, hard work, exercise and determination.   I had a stable job with a decent sa...

  • 50 pounds lost, no one cares, no one notices - Does it even Matter?

    I am half way towards my weight loss goal. The sad part is I am still morbidly obese and even when I make my goal weight, I will still be in the overweight range.  In fact, I am so big that people can't even tell that I have lost weight.  50 pounds a...

  • In his Eyes

    I often wonder why my husband never said anything about my weight gain. I doubled in weight and size over the years. Of course, he noticed so why didn't he say anything? The other night I watched him doze off. He looked tired - work had been crazy l...

  • Set Backs are Never the End

    Have you ever felt defeated on this journey? The scale talking back, your favorite pants popped a button and took out a migrating sparrow, or worse, you have an injury and can't exercise!? Most of that has happened to me.I started my fitness journey ...

  • Man in the Mirror

    I promised myself when I decided to start... ahem ...‘blogging’, that I would be a 100% honest with myself, and you. I guess that’s the luxury anonymity affords you. You’re able to put more of yourself out there. So at least in my alter ego, I’m goin...

  • Take Five

    I've lost five out of the hundred or more pounds I need to lose. Such a small percentage!  But... --I wouldn't leave a nickel on the street--my kids would be thrilled if their teacher added five points to a test --having five of something is consider...

  • In the year 2525

    So I think I originally 'discovered' MyFitnessPal in 2006, and used it on our only computer, the family desktop. I couldn't conceive of a simpler way of logging food--in the 90s my girlfriends and I had been writing everything we ate in steno pads, a...

  • 291 Days - 70 Pounds gone - It's Halftime!

    70 1/2 pounds are gone. I can't believe it, it still feels so surreal. I have dreamed of losing weight, I have planned it numerous times in my mind, but I never succeeded until now. Could someone please pinch me? I just want to make sure it's not a d...

  • The Over-Thinking Woes

    So there I was, sitting alone and I could not get that food out of my mind.You see, a few Sundays ago we had a BBQ at church. I did really well and never had a single bite off of my food program. When it was over, there was so very much food left ove...

  • The Look

    I'm not completely sure, but I think I got "The Look" at the grocery store this morning! I saw someone I know casually, for the first time in months. She got a little squinty-eyed. Out loud, we talked only about our children and their school adventur...

  • Reality Hits You Hard, Bro

    I haven't had to crawl through my minivan for a few weeks now! 🎉See, when we got a new van in 2014, it was a few inches wider than our old one, enough to make it impossible to get in the driver's door if my husband parked his car too close to it (if ...

  • Liftiversary

    A year ago today I stepped into a gym for the first time in over 15 years. I was deadset on getting strong. Not losing weight, not getting fit, getting strong. I'd been inpsired by the badass women on my FL who routinely lifted, who lifted amazing we...

  • Standing tall and letting go

    Standing on my own is hard on me. It makes me feel uneasy, and I feel uncomfortable. If sitting is the new smoking as they say, then I am a chain smoker. I sit all the time. At home, in the car, at work and then back at home. Sitting down eases my pa...

  • longer Obese!

    With this morning's weigh in, I have moved from the obese category on the BMI charts to the overweight category. I am thrilled! I would like to say normal, here I come, but to be honest, I don't know if that is realistic for me. I am enjoying exercis...

  • Converting the Heathen

    In the beginning of your fitness journey (Come on, we all mean weight loss, who are we fooling.), there is a lot of self-doubt and insecurity surrounding your ability to make this whole thing happen. Two days in you get mugged by a donut in the break...

  • Trick or Treat

    I haven't had chocolate and candy bars for months and I didn't really miss it. "Perhaps I have lost my sweet tooth", that's what I thought until I saw all the Halloween candy.  It's everywhere. In the office, in the stores, it seems I can't get a br...
