Don't Give Up

Sunday, December 07, 2014      5 comments

I've been there. I've thought there was no answer. I thought I would never lose another pound. I thought I would never find a plan I could stick to. I thought I would just have to deal with the weight I was. Just when I was ready to quit an... Read more

A New Start

Wednesday, September 03, 2014      5 comments

I have recently had a new start in my weight loss journey and it is all thanks to a friend who was willing to share what she found. My good friend had a good friend that had started following the Trim Healthy Mama book and had great success wit... Read more

I am back where I started weight wise, plus a pound or 2. I haven't been this heavy since I was 9 months pregnant with my daughter who will be 5 on Monday. I have no one to blame but myself. I am done belly aching, crying, hiding, justifying,... Read more

Lately I have been stuck. I haven't done anything about losing the weight because it seemed like everything I tried, I failed at. So it was easier to just avoid it all and not worry about it which isn't true either because I have worried about... Read more

I admit it. I have been avoiding being accountable, being on Spark People, and avoiding doing the things I know I need to do to lose the weight I know I need to lose. I've been fighting it and ignoring it again because it seems easier even tho... Read more

Weight Loss Wednesday

Wednesday, February 06, 2013      4 comments

Not much to report today on the weight loss front. I seem to have hit a plateau and keep bouncing back and forth between two numbers that are one half pound apart. Today I was on the higher side of that number and scale shows a half pound gain... Read more

Weight-Loss Wednesday

Wednesday, January 30, 2013      3 comments

I wish I had better results to post this week, but I don't. I took another step backward and gained another pound this week. This puts my total weight loss at only eight and a half pounds. I am disappointed that I did not have better results ... Read more

When I don't focus, I fall off track

Wednesday, January 23, 2013      1 comments

I didn't focus this past week. I gave in to my sweet tooth. I didn't drink enough water. I didn't make the best food choices. The scale showed that this morning. The scale gave me exactly what I deserved - a big ol' fat plus 3. I got exact... Read more

It is Wednesday again. The weeks lately have just been a blur to me. Ever since Christmas Eve when Buddy Bear got the flu and then on Christmas, I got the flu, time has just all ran together. Last week it was my hubby's turn to get the flu, s... Read more

Changes are working

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      3 comments

I made a lot of changes in December. I fasted from sugar, caffeine, dairy, and meat for most of the month and it helped reset my body. I increased my water intake, started exercising consistently, and made purposeful decisions about my food. ... Read more

Taking it Day by Day

Tuesday, August 21, 2012      4 comments

I thought that I had hit rock bottom before, but I think that I wanted to hit rock bottom so I kept looking for it. Every time that I thought I had hit rock bottom I would change for a couple of days, a couple of weeks, see the scale move a lit... Read more

Just over 10 Miles

Friday, August 03, 2012      2 comments

This week I had joined the virtual 5k for the week. I decided to sign up to walk it because I know that I am not ready to run it yet. I will be eventually, but I am not ready to run the race yet. I had been walking the last few weeks, but I h... Read more

Starting to Run

Friday, July 20, 2012      2 comments

Its getting a little easier to make better choices, to deny my cravings, and I want to exercise. Today I went to the track to walk, but I decided that I would through in a little running. I can't tell you that it was the best running I have ev... Read more

I Made it Through and Turned it Around

Wednesday, July 18, 2012      5 comments

I am not going to first I thought I would never make it through the day. I didn't sleep well last night, I had to be up early for the boys I watch (in addition to my own kids), and I just didn't feel great. I wanted to give up and cra... Read more
