Swimsuit issues...Definitely not Sports Illustrated!!

Low sodium/low fat-how do you balance it out?
I started off soooo strong with eating extremely low sodium to avoid kidney stones. The problem is that I have "burned out". I wonder if I tried to cut too much at once or just too much in general on some days. I don't know how to balance bet... Read more
Have any low sodium ideas? Please HELP!!
Does anyone have good ideas of what to eat that is low sodium? I think that part of not losing much weight this week is because I'm not eating enough (I know not right, huh?), and not the right things. I look at labels and get very discouraged... Read more
Taking the slow road to a better me!!

Why do I do this to myself??
Well, I am slowly (yes, extremely slowly) trying to get back on track. Then, I wonder why I do this to myself...why not keep going in the right direction all of the time??

Just a quick note on my progress...there was none...the scales didn't move at all:( Oh well, onto another week. I think I'll try more cardio and more fruits and veggies. I'm usually within my nutritional ranges, but I know that I could do bet... Read more
Why is it such a slow road?!?
I thought that I had done so well this week, exercising more, more strength training, staying on the low side of my calories ALL week and such. I was really looking for a bigger loss this week:( I know, don't get discouraged atleast I'm still ... Read more
Early Valentine's Day...The Best Ever!!
My husband decided that today would be a better day to celebrate Valentine's Day than Sunday, so he took his "sweethearts" out to lunch today (my 3 year old daughter and me:). It was great, and I made good choices...veggies instead of fries, a ... Read more
Could have been better...
Today was weigh in day, after a not so great week. I hurt my back on Monday morning and couldn't even breathe without agonizing pain. Needless to say, my back slowly got better, but my fitness went down the tubes:( I'm sure that I could have ... Read more
