Before After

day 2

I'm feeling horribly sick today.  I threw up my breakfast. 
Down .2lbs this morning. 

First Days Results

Down 3.8lbs in just one day.  Now I know I was completely out of control with my eating.  I ate healthy all day yesterday but I did go over my points.  But I had a little more self control than before and my snacking was healthy. 
My menu is planned tonight.  It's steak stroganoff made with top sirloin that I've trimmed all the fat off, whole wheat noodles, lipton onion soup mix, mushrooms, onions, and smart balance sour cream.  I will probably have green beans for a veggie. 

completely floored

Here I am... the HEAVIEST I've ever been.  I guess stress is taking it's toll on me.  I've got to get this under control.  186 freaking pounds.  AND I've done this in just 3 short months.

Checking In

We are going on almost a year since I left my husband.  I haven't weighed in about a month but I posted my last weight.  Obviously I've gone back up on the scale.  I really wish I could afford to go back to WW meetings but there is no way right now.  I'm living on less than $500/month.  I'm going to use the food tracker on here and see how that goes.  I've stalked the cupboards with pretty decent food.  I've missed you all so much.


I can't go into detail but I've been been under so much stress and turmoil in my life.  Good news is I'm down to 139.2.  I haven't been in the 130's for at least 6 years. 

Love you all.  I miss you all a ton.


I'm the lowest I've been in probably 6 years.  I've now passed my WW low from August 2007!  142.4 lbs!!!! 

I promise I'll be back soon.  lots of luv, B

Down again...

So I think I just have one more pound to go to get where I was at my lowest at WeightWatcher's.  Woot!  I promise to check in soon.  I really love you all and miss you tons.  I just have so much going on right now.  It's crazy. 

Down, Down...

Down another 3.2lbs from last time I weighed.  I'm at my highschool weight now.  I promise soon i will be back on here checking on all my good friends. Things are so difficult right now.  I'm truly living out hell.  I hope it's over soon.  Love you all!


hey guys.  I will update you soon but I don't have much time.  I'm down to 148 even without WW's.  I know it's stress but I'm only 3lbs from my highschool weight and 6lbs from my low last summer. 

I love you all and you mean so much.  So much is going on I haven't had time to blog or check on my wonderful friends.  I promise I'll be back soon.  Love you!

July UPDATE....

I MISS YOU ALL TERRIBLY.  I can't even remember what I wrote in my last update but last month I filed for divorce.  Things have got real nasty and this is going to be a very rough journey.  I havne't asked for anything other than I have full custody of our baby and he gets plenty of visitation. 

I had to stop WW's because I have no money at all.  I did find a job that I can walk to in our little town.  It's going to be a humbling experience as I have always been able to use my brain and now it's going to be using my brawn. (sp?).  I'm just thankful I found something. 

I'm sure that I've put on about 4lbs.  I thought I would lose but I completely gave up alcohol altogether until this whole mess is over.  I think I'm replacing the alcohol with food.  It used to make me feel full and I wouldn't eat as much.  I think I'm eating more now.  How is that?  lol. 

I will post a newer pic of myself.  I do look happy in it.  Some sense of freedom is finally creeping into my life and my heart.  Love you all!
