LYNNABEL's CalorieKing Blog

In childhood and high school I was always a healthy weight. After graduating from college, my weight fluctuated (mostly in the up-direction). I got to an all time high of 158 in 2000, and joined weight watchers (the in-home version - I've always been private about my weight) and lost about 28 pounds. I was able to maintain that loss through several major live challenges, but at the 28th major issue to hit me in the space of 1 year (a slight exaggeration), the pounds came back along with loneline...

Hey CK Peeps!

Its been way too long. I read your blogs, and think about you often.

Doing fine. I just took one part of the bar - the ethic/professional responsibility piece, and we'll see if I passed. Fingers crossed. I won't finish law school until next fall, but we can take this part of the bar before then, TYJ.

Kids are great - getting so big. Will and Ellie are in my sister's wedding at Thanksgiving, as am I. Work is fine. Steve is doing all the 'mazing stuff he always does.

I hate this about myself - hate it: When someone judges me (negatively), or has a less than positive opinion on how I've acted or behaved, my gut says they're right.

I am hostage to this. And I'm exhausted from trying to fight it. I've been trying to fight it for fifteen years, trying to find a sense of se...

Saturday morning. I have classes this semester on Sunday and Monday, a reduced load. But a monster paper for one of the classes. It makes for nice Saturdays, although I usually spend 4-8 hours of it studying. I meant to workout when I got up this morning, but ended up taking the dog out, turning up the heat and going back to bed for 2 hours. I'll workout tomorrow morning. I am trying to do workout once per weekend since I figure that with a reduced class load I should be able to make myself do ...

Hi Friends!!!

I read blogs almost every day, but never make time to write my own. I'll get overwhelmed if I try to write too much, so I'll just say that I'm glad its 2015. I turned 40 a few months ago and have mixed feelings about that. Some health/body related, others more emotional/spiritual. I probably wouldn't be thinking about it much at all without the mile-marker that 40 is. I think I may be in perimenopause (hormone fluctuations that can occur 10-15 years before actual menopause). I...

I know you all have been waiting - Eyeliner dream last night! :eyebrows: Except, wasn't an eyeliner. It was a very small-screened phone that required a very small pen to tap in my 4 digit passcode.
