Better March

It’s March! I’m so happy that February is finally over. I don’t know about you, but it felt like February lasted forever. February was not kind to me either. I got sick in the final days of the month and I’m only now starting to feel better. Thank you for all the well wishes. They meant a lot to me. I’m glad it’s all going away. It’s all in good timing too. I have a lot going on these first couple of weeks in March and then some more stuff in the final weeks. I know that I’m going to be faced with several challenges this month, but I believe that I’m capable of handling them. In fact, I look forward to them. This month we’ll finally start to see some warmer weather, well, once this Titan passes us. sigh

So Fitting

These past few days I’ve been doing a lot of shopping. No, let me rephrase that — these past few days I’ve been doing a lot of gauging. I’d go into a store, pick up several jeans and sheepishly walk over to the fitting rooms. Slowly, I’d attempt to fit into them. I kept testing the waters, waiting for my bubble to burst and suddenly find myself back where I was almost 50 pounds ago. At the very least I expected this:

…but that never happened! I picked the size lower than my current one and each time I would expect them not to fit. I did this several times over the course of several hours and several stores. They kept fitting quite nicely! I was starting to feel a little giddy. 😉 Anyway, I ended up not buying anything. I didn’t want to shell out money for clothes that I plan to not fit into within a matter of months. It just felt nice to comfortably fit into the size lower and I got a great confidence boost from the whole experience. I can’t wait to return to those stores once I’m maintaining. Heck, I may go before then! 😀

Speaking of confidence, my overall confidence has been on the rise lately. I find that I’m generally more positive and self-assured now. The changes that have occurred in the last few months is startling, but I’ve taken to all of them and I welcome them with open arms. It’s fun to discover who I am “outside” of the weight — it’s almost like unwrapping a gift. Thankfully, I like this Carolina that’s coming out. 🙂


Until next time,



Weigh-In Wednesday Week 11

Before we get to the fun stuff, I just want to clarify the confusion I seem to have created with yesterday’s post. I’m not depressed, but I did go through one last year. I’m very happy and relaxed and this has been the case for a while now. The only remarkable thing about yesterday was that I finally felt completely free of my depression. I wasn’t feeling any sadness or negativity. That being said, I want to thank you for your concern, though. It means so much to me that you care. 🙂 In terms of my posting, I’m going to be busy in the coming weeks. Don’t worry, it’s a good kind of busy. I’ll share everything that’s happening with you all.

Let’s go weigh me in!… Read the rest of this entry


A lot has been happening for me lately and rather than being stressed out, I’m feeling quite hopeful. I’m looking forward to the future for the first time in a while. One of the characteristics of depression is not being hopeful. There’s not much positive thinking when it comes to the future and for a while I struggled with that. I’d lost my positive outlook. Regaining my hope didn’t happen overnight, but sudden realization that you’re not focusing on anything negative feels like the light has finally been turned on. It’s an amazing feeling. 🙂

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’ve been a little off with the commenting and supporting and I hope you can forgive me if I’ve made you feel slighted. I’ve been busy lately, and unfortunately, that’s not going to let up just yet. I’m going to be even more busy in the coming months so my posts are going to be at the bare minimum. Believe me, that is not something that I want to do, but it’s something that I understand I must do. I will be sure to share my experiences whenever I can.

Tomorrow is the end of another week for me. If I’m to be honest, I never expected to last this long. I thought I’d be done. I’m happily surprised and I’m thankful that I didn’t get what I expected. 🙂 Well, I’ll let you go. I hope you have a terrific Tuesday! Enjoy your day!


Until next time,


State of My Union

Hi guys! Today is an especially meaningful day for me. I’m celebrating a special anniversary. 🙂 Woot!

In other news, this is going to be a relatively exciting (I use that term loosely) week for this blog. I’m expected to get my first Bulu Box tomorrow. I would’ve gotten it today, but due to there being no mail delivery services today, I’m forced to wait another day. Oh well. I’ll start posting reviews about the products as soon as possible. I also have a new recipe in the works that is low carb friendly for my sweethearts that adhere to that lifestyle. I’m looking forward to sharing that with you all.

As if we haven’t already been pummeled with enough snow, we’re expected to get more tonight. In the beginning of the winter I was excited because the snow allowed for extra exercise, but I’m officially tired of it. I’ll take a cue from Rob and think of summer and gardening. This year, I plan to build a garden bed for the extra veggies I want to grow. I look forward to berry picking again this year. I had so much fun doing that last year and I get to enjoy delicious berries in the dead of winter without having to pay the ridiculous winter prices. Here are some pictures of the fruit that I picked:

Don’t they look good?! 🙂

In the past few weeks, I’ve slacked with the support. You guys have written excellent posts and shared some deep feelings and thoughts on your blogs. I’ve read all your posts and I’m so incredibly proud of all of you. You guys never cease to amaze me. I will do better in the coming weeks.

Until next time,
