Uh, is this thing on?

So yea, I've been pretty much missing in action for 2 months now.  I don't know if blogging has lost its luster or what.  Between my accountability groups on facebook and posting regularly on instagram, the desire to blog just has not been there.

I'm still around though!  And things are moving in the right direction again (finally!).  Chris and I joined a new gym and we have been going together and apart but also keeping each other accountable (if I go before work, I'll check in with him and make sure he goes after he gets off and vice versa).  We are working on coming up with healthier food options too and eventually (hopefully) that will all fall back into place.

I'm trying to get back to regularly logging my food in MFP as well.  I feel like all the pieces are hopefully going to start fitting together again.  And they need to be because damn.   All the hard work I did for 2 years is slowly but surely sliding away.  I've gained 40 (well close enough to 40.) pounds back in the last year and 3 months.  Top left, was my all time high, 244.  Bottom left, my all time adult low 186.2 and the right is me currently at 224.

It's definitely time to get back heading in the right direction.

If you are so inclined, I'm on instagram as geauxgirl74 (went back to my old name since I haven't been blogging as much lately.)

Not sure how regularly I will post but I will try to come back at least once a month or so to see what progress I've made.  I'm also trying to be a minimalist with the scale also.  I want to focus on food and exercise and not obsess about the number.

Hope you all are still doing well out there in blog land! 


  1. I am so glad to see this post. When people go silent it so often means that they have fallen off the rails and are not even trying anymore! I am so glad that this is not the case with you!

  2. I am excited to see the progress you make in the next month :)

  3. It's great that you and Chris are both hitting the gym. It is so much easier with a partner!

    1. Thanks yes, it really really is. I hope we can keep the momentum going!

  4. So glad to see your post! I know I've seen you comment on other blogs, and I'm always curious about your progress.

  5. Good to see you back :) It gets so hard to keep up with all the social media. I use to be very active on my Lose it app, but haven't checked on folks there in few months because blogging squeezes it out.
    Hang in there and take one day at time!! You can get back in that losing rhythm again :)
