Binge of All Binges....
I am feeling like a bloated, out of control alien tonight! I am so disappointed in myself. For the last several months I have managed to control myself and not give in to my desire to binge eat. I have maintained control and relied on my willpow... Read more
Pep Talk With Myself...
It would seem I have hit a plateau... 22lbs down and a knee injury has stalled my weightloss. I am not going to do what I normally do and give up. I have worked too hard and have earned those 22 lbs I lost. I will keep up the work... I was able ... Read more
Yesterdays Blah is Todays Backup Plan!!

My Support Team
This time is different for me than any other time I have tried to get healthy and fit. I have struggled with my weigh throughout my adult life. I have been on the roller coaster of "up,up,up, down" for years. I topped out at almost 280lbs about ... Read more
Dancing with the Babies
I had not realized just how little energy I had until recently. Every day this week I have turned on Pandora radio to the Toddler station and danced with my 3 and 2 year olds. My 14 year old even got into it with us on Tuesday when he was home f... Read more
Hanging In There =)

The Great Gym Debate
OK, I work out at home 5-6 days a week. Alone. With no one watching. Except maybe my kids, from their bedroom if they have woken up from their naps before I am done. I am finding it difficult to stay motivated & on track while doing this by myse... Read more

So far so goo! I have cheated a little bit on my scale goal, but everything else is going very well. I have noticed (sorry if TMI, Men) that for a few days leading up to my period I put on 4lbs. Anyone else notice a slight increase on the scale... Read more
Living By the Scale & Denise Austin
Enough already!! I jump on my scale at least 10 times a day!!! I know, rationally, that weight fluctuates & I should only weigh in once a week. But I am more an OCD type personalty, so I find it hard not to obsess with the #s!!!!!! So, and I am ... Read more
Well, my body is now in a state of ketosis. I feel pretty good- no huge energy bursts to report. I will say the funny taste in my mouth is something to get used to. ... Read more

I am an Addict- Food is my Drug
OK, I am admitting it. My name is Daisha and I am an addict. A FOOD addict. I LOVE food. It is not only yummy & tasty, or full of nutritious and necessary vitamins & minerals. It is also my bff, my confidant, my sickly obsession. Yes, I obsess o... Read more
