I feel guilty, though, lately when I pull o... Read more
I'm going to float away...
I was told by the doctor to drink half of my weight in water everyday in order to lose weight. As she said this, I thought to myself "man am I glad I'm in the 2's and to the 3's". But with that being said, I'm beginning to feel like a boat saili... Read more

Learning to eat what I want
So, last night we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. Thankfully, I looked up the nutritional information before we went and had a loose plan in mind. Well, when we get there my hubby orders a drink, so I ordered a Mich. Ultra. Then, since he w... Read more
I did horrible Friday night, but so far I have stayed on track today and yesterday. One day at a time. I am not beating myself up, but am trying to stay positive and do the best that I can do for the moment. And realize I did not put all this w... Read more
I knew I was going out of town, but I was unprepared about the mentality I would have for my week away from home. Some surprises: I made sure to eat off the salad bar every meal and a fruit at every meal, I watched for carbs and most importantly... Read more
Starving one day...Full the next
Some days I feel as though I cannot get enough to eat and the calories for my diet just seem to not be enough. Then, some days I feel like the bare minimum is too many and I'm scrambling to eat my days worth of calories.

Summer is coming...Hide the swimsuit?
It happens every year: Summer comes and I stress about what I am going to look like in my swimsuit this year. Am I going to stress out this year? Absolutely, but I'll do it knowing that I am working on how I look and feel about myself. I don't t... Read more

Okay, it's official, the Biggest Loser class at RockSolid kicked my out of shape butt. I came home coughing and hacking. What a great workout.... Read more
Today, I was able to find my scale and weigh in for my weekly weigh in, which I missed last week. Well, my scale was packed and it made weighing a difficult thing. I was elated as I looked down and after returning to my diet I had lost 4.6 lbs i... Read more
