Lily and I did a 4k walk on 4th of July for the Seattle Humane Society! I can't tell you how amazing it feels to start participating in activities like this now that I've lost weight and can move much better. It feels really good! The day started early at 6 am on a...read more
I had a tearful moment this last week. It was tears of joy. I desperately needed clothes and I own one shorts, one capri pants (that are falling off of my hips...speaking of hips I can see my hip bone now when I lay down...lol) and needed just a few shorts for the...read more
This last weekend, I went to a wedding where there was food all around and specifically two wedding cakes. I won't go into specifics, but let's just say people's faces showed how amazing it was when they would take a bite and then close their eyes and purr like a...read more
I lost 2.4 lbs for a total of 75.8 lbs gone! I'm 4.4 lbs away from losing 80 lbs which means a mini goal completed to get my next charm for my necklace. I'm 11.4 lbs away from my mini goal of being at my lowest weight in years - 170 lbs. Then I'm 24.4 lbs away from...read more

It's hard to believe I've been on the Ideal Protein Diet for 28 weeks now! It seems like only a short time has passed since I started on the program. Has it been difficult at times? Yes. Do I sometimes think about how I wish I were done and could eat "normally"...read more
Daily Food Journal: I'm following the Ideal Protein Diet protocol using alternative (non-Ideal Protein) foods. It was a bit hot this afternoon so I opted for an already prepared Italian Shepherd Pie (shown below in my daily food journal under "dinner") that I made...read more
Wow - this week I saw some incredible numbers on the scale, inches lost, and some other cool stats on my weekly weight loss weigh-in. This was a bit of a test week. I decided I would lay off the fitness which included cycling and walking and see how the numbers...read more
Another funky week when I weighed in this Saturday. I gained overall weight, but lost in my total fat loss, gained lean muscle mass, and gained TBW%. So all the numbers are good, just looks a little odd on the scale. Obviously I'm not really going for lean muscle...read more
