My indulgent weekend.

It’s not about food, calories, limits, restrictions or stringent workouts, sweating or sore feet… not this weekend. I had a very indulgent weekend and it had nothing to do with food really, but everything to do with consuming the life I am working hard to live. Yesterday I took the day off from working out, […]

!!! FINALLY !!!

The hard work of the last two weeks has paid off, I am down another 4lbs and I have broken through the 50lb mark! Lord, I felt like a stalled car, whose engine just wouldn’t turn over! Lindsey kept telling me to just keep pushing through, that my body would adjust and figure it out.  […]

The heat is on…

In the gym, on the treadmills next to me many times there are girls who look perfect, they run perfect and many of them have their hair up, stylish headband on and I am amazed at how put together they look. It all matches, their shoes, clothes, heart monitor watch, headphones all pastel pink or […]

Crawling and Scratching.

I feel like I am pulling myself toward the 50lb  mark with all my might, but not quite there. Today’s weigh in was not bad, I managed to lose the 4 lbs I gained and 2 additional pounds for a 6 lbs loss this weigh in bringing me to 343.  It seems like breaking through […]

When Pigs Fly!

“When pigs fly” is an adynaton, a way of saying that something will never happen. Up until a month ago I never, ever thought I would be writing this but then again I never thought I would be running on a treadmill for 10 minuets at a time, that I would find the courage to […]

And this one belongs to…

My Dad. This post is about my Dad and baseball. The best memories I have of him, the memories that comfort me the most are the ones that send me back with the smell of a hot dog, the cheer of the crowd and sharing a box of cracker jacks after the seventh inning stretch […]

run a mile in my shoes…

I have been wanting to get new shoes to run in for awhile now, but have been putting it off because of my own fears. If I go into a store for runners would they laugh at me? Would they treat me differently? Would they think what in the world is this morbidly obese woman […]
