It's been almost 2 years since I posted to this blog. SHAME ON ME!

Well, after hitting a high weight of 285 pounds at my physical before moving to Alaska, I am glad to say I have lost some. I had lost 25 pounds by Christmas, but put 12 of them back on during Christmas Break. I couldn't seem to lose them, so right after Spring Break me and the school's counselor, Kristen, began to do T-25. That first week was awful! I didn't think I would ever be able move again! We finished the 5 weeks of the Alpha round last week! I do the modified version right now, but at least I'm doing something! I have lost 6.8 pounds so far, but far more important is that I feel better and have more energy.

So why start blogging again? I need the accountability over the summer! I won't have Kristen banging on my door ready to work out! It's all on me! YIKES! Plus, the Lower 48 will bring all sorts of temptations that I don't have up here, like restaurants! And, I mean, I desperately want to eat out....I go without for so long! I am going to have to find a balance!

One of my main summer goals is to do my fall semester grocery shopping so that I will be stocked with "clean" foods. I need to cut back on the processed foods and really focus on my meals here.

If I stop posting again, start bugging me!


  1. Welcome back!!! Honestly I did not realize it had been two years since your last blog. So shame on us as well! From what I hear, T25 is no joke! Great job! What is your blogging goal? Are you going to continue T25 in the Lower 48 or something else? As far as the temptation of restaurants, set yourself "crap food" days in writing on a calendar. Then those are the only times you can eat at restaurants you really really enjoy. For example, mine are when I know we are going out of town for the weekend or someone's birthday. All the other days are when you eat to "fuel" your body. Do not feel guilty about your set crap food days!!!! You will feel "bad" enough as the delicious crap food makes it way through you after all the clean eating. That is usually enough motivation for me to get back to my clean eating. ;) I am so proud of you! Please let us know what we can do to help you! Laurie

  2. My goal is to continue the T-25 while I am in the lower 48, but with my knees I may have to find an alternate activity till I get some weight off. I feel like I will be out of town for 2 months!
