The Halloween Candy Conundrum

So far in 2012, I’ve lost 114 pounds. I’ve been really happy with my success, I’ve made a lot of changes in my lifestyle and eating habits. Now it’s October. And I’m struggling. It’s Halloween candy season. There is something about Halloween candy that’s insatiable for me. The variety, the nostalgia, the candies that you […]

Review: Fresh Produce Clothes

I was recently contacted by a representative for Fresh Produce Clothes, a California fashion retailer. Having lost some weight, I’ve been excited to have new things to wear in my wardrobe. I was told to go on the website and pick anything I wanted. How cool is that? The Fresh Produce site was full of unique […]

Beauty and the Bypass

I’m excited to announce two things: I’ve been approved for weight loss surgery, and will be undergoing laparoscopic roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery on February 7th. I’ve decided to share my weight loss journey publicly, and have launched a dedicated blog to document the process. It is called “Beauty and the Bypass.” If you’re curious to […]

I’ve been threatening to do it for year. And now is the time. Today is my 5th day completely soda/carbonation free. It’s actually day 8 in the process, but I caved to a can of Diet Mtn Dew when I had a headache on day 2. There are a lot of reasons why I needed […]

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about my sleep issues, so what better time to write about it than in the middle of the night? Since my mid-teenage years, I’ve had such irregular sleep patterns. Or “poor sleep hygiene” as a sleep […]

Putting the CUTE back into CuteCultureChick

I may not be everyone’s ideal of beauty, but I am beautiful. At least, I believe I am most of the time. The last 24 hours have really rocked my world. An article by Maura Kelly was posted yesterday, via the Marie Claire website, entitled “Should Fatties Get A Room (Even on TV?).” In this […]

Momentum

Three weeks ago, Taylor and I signed up for a gym membership. My health’s been better recently and I’m feeling motivated to lose weight again (especially looking at myself in all those London pictures). In the past 11 days, I’ve had 7 cardio workouts. I started out barely being able to hang on for 25 […]

Weight Loss Blog

I decided to pick up the posting again on my private weight loss blog that I started almost a year ago. The funny thing is that I weigh about the same as I did when I started the blog in February, even though I’ve been up at least 12 pounds higher, and down 9 pounds […]

Work and Weight Loss Update

Update at work…my alpha changed again from Q-S. Much easier I must say, about oh….1000 less accounts. Big relief. I complained to my team coordinator that I felt overwhelmed, and she split the alpha again. Stats may not suck so much this month after all. So many movies and shows I want to see. I’m […]
