Where have I been?

I know I haven't been blogging as much lately. I have been doing my Biggest Loser reviews, but I haven't posted a more personal post in a couple of weeks.

Mostly I have been on my effort plateau, not letting my lifestyle changes totally go but not focusing as intently on them either. My weight is actually up a bit on the scale today -- I will weigh in officially on Wednesday and make sure to post. It will probably be Thursday before the TBL post goes up.  I have been getting compliments on my weight loss lately, and I see differences in my legs and face. I think if I can get into a routine where I can eat most meals at home again, things will really move in the right direction.

I ended my first 7-week term at school, which was very busy. There have been a lot of other things going on at work that have been stressful.  Then, I made the mistake of saying yes to a request that seemed reasonable at first, but turned out to be just too much for me, especially at a busy time in the semester. Luckily it resolved itself, and it's a good reminder to be careful about what I say yes to.  Jesse has also been busy at work so we have barely been home at the same time.

Anyway, I didn't want you to take my silence as a sign that I have given up.  
The thing about really making this a lifestyle change is that even when I am busy and feeling frustrated, I do okay.


  1. Glad to hear from you.

  2. great pic of you in the green jacket! I think it's OK to slow down on goal obsessions. sounds like you are making it work for you. getting compliments is a nice affirmation.
