YORKVILLE's CalorieKing Blog

Onto the next chapter...

This is my second time on Calorie King. I closed my account about a year ago after a very successful year losing 110 pounds. It was the most transformative and challenging year of my entire life.

Loving life

Tuesday, February 5th 2013

I have been feeling really great this past week or two - I get this overwhelming feeling of being happy and content in my body... feeling joyful and excited to be living in this healthy body that gets stronger every day.

Although I am technically finished my month of raw food, I don't want to give it up. I am loving all the food I am eating. I find myself getting really excited for my big bowl salads for lunch... with blueberries and alfalfa sprouts and sunflower seeds and tomato, and cel...

Stronger by the day

Friday, January 25th 2013

I wish I could be jumping up and down talking about all the weight I'm losing but alas, that is still not the case. I just can't seem to break under 178, but I do know I am on a downward trend. I have been doing a lot of strengthening activities lately so I am happy to focus on other wins.. like how much stronger I am getting!


I have never been someone with a strong core... nuh uh, I mean NEVER. :nono2:

Anytime I have attempted core exercises like curls or leg raises I have done th...

Getting my weight loss mojo back

Wednesday, January 16th 2013

I have had no problem with motivation these past 6 months... lots of exercise, healthy eating, and I have been logging really consistently (especially since starting the Queens challenge) - but the scale hasn't budged.

In previous blog posts I've already talked about a lot of the reasons behind the stalled scale so I won't repeat myself...

But I wanted to stop in and post to say I think I've got my mojo back! I'm losing weight again (finally)!!! :rock1:

Something in the past few week...

I feel amazing!

I feel amazing...

I am approaching the most fit I have ever been in my life and interesting to note that I am about 30 pounds larger than when I was this fit before. It just goes to show that your size does not accurately predict your fitness.

I am really strong right now, incredibly flexible, and my cardio is great.

I have been doing a lot of cross training - I run once a week, swim once a week, play soccer twice a week, practice yoga 3 or 4 times a week and weight training/cal...

New Year

Thursday, January 3rd 2013

In some ways I am really disappointed in myself for not having lost any weight in the last 6 months on CK. I think about how successful I was before - when I lost 110 pounds and was so dedicated and saw the pounds literally melting off week by week. What's different now?

I got used to being thin. I got complacent. I think I felt a little invicible... that this new thin, fit, healthy, and active me couldn't possibly gain the weight back.

I would notice 5 pounds... then another 5. I...
