I re-started my weight loss attempts again on 3/4/13. I'm down 16 lbs so far---hooray! But, I feel this emotional pull trying to drag me backwards today. I am so psyched and proud of how far I've come in approx. 5 weeks but it takes so very lit... Read more

Goodbye Health-o-meter...Hello Weight Watchers!

Friday, March 22, 2013      1 comments

Okay, let me begin by saying I've always enjoyed a little chuckle at the expense of those people who make such a big production about "the weigh-in". Should I be naked? Should I weigh in at night or the morning? Should my hair be wet or dry? S... Read more

I have just a little over 4 months to go till our wedding day and lots of weight to lose. I've decided to tackle this from a different angle since the "big picture" view of wanting to lose 40+ pounds by July has just been too overwhelming and t... Read more

I've always been the girl who said I wouldn't run if somebody was chasing me but I gave it a try this week and I'm determined to keep going! I've been walking a song, running a song, and switching back and forth. I've never had to shower after... Read more

I would've bet every dollar I'll earn in my life that I didn't eat a lot of calories in a day. Afterall, I eat SO HEALTHY so why won't my scale budge??? Since I started my journal, I'm shocked at how many calories I was eating in a day and way... Read more
