Hi, I'm Ev. I'm training to become a horsewoman. These are my adventures and misadventures. I'm green as hell, but so far, so good. I'm now learning from Bo (and sometimes his wife DeDe) at D&D Ranch in Pope Valley. I am extremely lucky to have this opportunity, I feel quite blessed, and I feel that they, and horses, have really turned my life around.
Solomon is my baby- a big old flea bitten grey Appendix gelding who is very kind and way too smart! I love him so very much. He is a rescue and was meant to be co-owned rehabbed, and maybe rehomed to a good home. He turned out to be over 25 years old with injuries that ultimately do not make him riding sound, so he is retired.

Not really horse related, exactly, but ah well. :)

So I have been working hard to stop starving myself, and I've been doing pretty okay at that. :}
I've also been getting as much exercise as my ankles and back will allow me to get.
I haven't been dieting, heh, my problem is undereating. So I've been eating more. And being as active as I can.
And I can hardly believe it, but I have lost 16 pounds!

If I am very very very lucky, someday maybe I can get down to 180, though I'm not making a goal of it because if I make a weight loss goal I start rationalizing the meal skipping. But that's about as low as my weight ever goes. That would be cool, but this is cool too. I just got new clothes in the mail (hah, I spent money on myself, instead of just on Solly ) and they're cute. I thought they would be a little tight on me, but they're actually not. I thought I was a 3x, but the skirt I bought on clearance is a 1x and it fits loosely, holy crap!

So this time, yay, I'm proud. And now I'm taking my boyfriend out to Outback Steakhouse for dinner. It's his birthday. Yay!

Anyway, I wanted to brag about not starving and getting a little healthier, so I did.

So I lost 16 pounds, mostly because I gained well over 1200 pounds of white spotty silliness.

congrats! I had the same experience of losing weight when I started to eat more. one piece of advice I got from a dietitian (maybe you already know this): she said it helps even more to eat similar foods at the same times every day. In addition to not eating enough, I'd screwed myself up going low-carb by sometimes eating some carbs, and sometimes eating none. I wish I'd known that sooner. anyway good luck!!
