I lost 2.4lbs this week!!!!!  Huge WTF!  I feel like one of those kids who didn’t do their homework and got away with it.  I’m grateful for it this week, but I know I can’t hope for it two weeks in a row.  Happy Happy Happy Monday!  Only 1.8 lbs away from my first 5% (10lbs).

In addition to struggling with my weight, I also struggle with gum disease.  It’s not horrible where I’m losing teeth (yet) or anything but I do have to go to the dentist more frequently for cleanings and have to be pretty diligent about flossing.  (I had to have root scaling and planing a year or so ago [at 23!!] and it was painful enough that I vowed to floss every day for the rest of my life.  Haha.)

It never ever occurred to me that the gum disease and weight problems could be connected.  I know I know, another thing that obesity increases your risk of having but this one can cause some pretty serious stuff! Continue Reading a few words about gum disease….

“Will you be my bridesmaid?”

A simple enough question.  One meant to show love and affection and sometimes even slavery (why, yes I would love to hold up your dress as take a sh!t during your reception).  As a much thinner woman, I never batted an eye.  As a self-proclaimed fat girl, this question creates the same sweaty palms and light-headedness that dances in middle school once did.  Would you like to take a guess as to why?

February was a hard month.  No.  February was an impossible month.  Between the blizzard in the DC Metro area, work trips, illness, dental work, and on and on and on.  February was rough for me.  But you know what?  I lost 3.6lbs!!!  I could have used all those things as excuses.  I could have ended February heavier than when I started (which has been the trend as of late), but I didn’t!  More importantly, I learned that I can lose weight.  I learned that my body does work and I learned to trust it to do it’s thing when I am fueling it adequately.  So what contributed to my success?   Continue Reading saying adios to february!…
