So Close to My Goal Weight | Kelley | 10 Years Ago


I am so freaking proud of the work I have done over the past three weeks. I started working out with Jillian Michaels Slimdown Program and am now almost to my goal weight. The last time I weighed in at this amount was May 30th. That was back when I was living by myself and taking care of the house being sold while DJ was in training school in Texas. And just two weeks before that, I weighed in at just a little above my goal weight. I know I can do this. I can achieve this goal. It feels so good!

The Game of Weight Loss | Kelley | 10 Years Ago


You have lost 15.9lbs since joining CalorieKing in January 2009. In the past three months you have lost 6.2lbs which equals, on average, 2.1lbs per month. If you can keep losing weight at this rate, you can reach your goal weight by February 2010.

It is so encouraging that the month listed when it says I could reach my goal keeps getting sooner and sooner. I have weighed in at my goal weight once before last year. I know this goal is attainable. The key is how do I keep it that way. I am n

Never Give Up | Kelley | 10 Years Ago


I just completed reading the book titled, Never Give Up! by Joyce Meyer. This book was certainly motivational. Times get hard and you need to have someone encourage you to not quit. You don't gain anything by starting or quitting only if you finish your goal. I am determined in life to never give up.

Times are a bit rough for our family right now. It seems that we keep facing one struggle after another. Despite the facts, DJ and I are still here. We are getting stronger as we stand in the

House Divided | Kelley | 10 Years Ago


It is the time again. It is time for the rivalry game between Michigan and THE Ohio State University. Despite how the season has gone for our teams this is still a big game. DJ hopes that the Buckeyes will come out flat. I know my team will not take this lightly. We want an outright Big 10 Championship. I believe our defense will show up. The Buckeye offense just needs to not make big mistakes. Saturday will be fun. Let's go Bucks!

Jillian Michaels | Kelley | 11 Years Ago


I am so glad that I lost .4 lbs this past week. It is mainly due to Jillian Michaels kicking my butt. She is a professional trainer from the Biggest Loser. ( I started watching that show this season. I enjoy it. I find it motivating and inspirational let alone being informative.)

I have felt in a rut regarding my exercise routine. I am certainly proud of my running, but I wanted some more guidance. I wanted a personal trainer. I went online and started reading reviews about Jillian Michael

New challenges | DJ | 11 Years Ago


Life is always throwing new challenges at you. Kelley's car broke down 1.5 miles from our house on a rainy night. We walked home, got it towed, and are looking at $1800 bill for a broken transmission. Our tenants are going to be 3 weeks late on rent as well. Combine that with working midnight shifts (9pm to 7am) and sleeping through much of the day - that makes daytime errands much more difficult to complete. We are surviving, however, and trying to look at the positive. Kelley has another job i

Must Raise My Standards | Kelley | 11 Years Ago


I keep setting my weight goals and saying I want to be down to 130, but I am not doing what it takes to get there. I am not that far away. That is when things get more challenging. The body does not want to give up those last few pounds.

I must use this website for what it is meant for. I need to keep track of my calories for more than just half a day. I need to limit myself to a certain amount each day. It is the only way I am going to lose this weight.

I am glad that I have been

DJ Working Midnight Shift | Kelley | 11 Years Ago


We are faced with our next challenge. DJ must work the midnight shift for the next nine weeks. It was only supposed to be six weeks after his three week class, but the class was pushed back. DJ has never worked these hours before. We are uncertain as to how this will play out. All I know right now is that is a challenge to sleep at night. I toss and turn constantly.

Happy Birthday to me! | DJ | 11 Years Ago


Another year goes by and I am even older now. I had a supremely delicious lunch at a local pizza place (Mellow Mushroom), and will be having some pumpkin peanut butter cheesecake for dessert tonight. I don't feel as old as I am and I think that is a good thing. I am getting in better shape and losing weight. I am working on this site frequently and hope to restart on The Awesome Theory site by the end of the year. I am in a class the next three weeks an

Struggles | Kelley | 11 Years Ago


God wants, deserves, and demands our best. Why do we keep offering Him our leftovers?

I cannot see God, but I believe that He is real. I can say that so easily, but does my life show that I believe that? Why am I so selfish? I wake up and stretch. I am thankful that my dog is so hyper that he strongly encourages me to get out of bed so I can meet his needs. I open the door and let the cats come in the room. They let their needs be known. I love my animals. I love to take care of them. <

    RIP, Dad
    A few weeks ago I received a call telling me that my dad had passed away. A couple of days ago I got back from my trip home to be with family, attended the memorial service, and take care of things. It was a nice trip - I stayed with my sister and her family for most of it at a rental house and then
