Busting Through Those Plateaus.

Monday, August 04, 2014      2 comments

My weightloss progress was steady for the first weeks. And then I hit a plateau. It took over a week to bust through (not too bad).... and then I hit another. Almost 3 weeks later, I finally saw a loss of 2 lbs and some inches. And now, here I a... Read more

Picking Myself Up, and Brushing Off the Disappointment

Thursday, January 02, 2014      7 comments

*exhales* I have fallen so hard off of the wagon, it's amazing I am still here. The last year has been such a hard and stressful one. And apparently I turned to food to cope. In May, I was down to 150. And I ended the year at 171.6... Read more

What the HE** is wrong with me?

Monday, December 16, 2013      9 comments

I have pretty much avoided the scale since my last weigh in at the end of October. I had a lot of issues that I was trying to deal with that did not involve weight loss and so it became the FURTHEST thing from my mind. Plus, DH and I also starte... Read more

My weigh in day was Monday. I was hoping to hit my goal of 10 pounds down before my birthday (which was Tuesday). I didn't have a loss this week. Just .2, which is a bathroom visit for all I am concerned lol. But I didn't gain anything, so I wil... Read more

Going Low Carb?

Tuesday, October 15, 2013      5 comments

My Birthday Goal.

Wednesday, October 09, 2013      4 comments

So I have lost 4 lbs since I restarted last week. Yay! My birthday is in 12 days. I was hoping to lose 10 lbs before I turned 27. So, that leaves 6 more to go. It always seems like the first pounds fall off easier, so I am optimistic... Read more

Weigh in Day.

Monday, October 07, 2013      2 comments

I spent the last week suffering from sinus congestion and what I suspect was bronchitis (it's still lingering). It pretty much wiped me out, energy wise. Not to mention, I slept very little because I would cough myself awake all night. But... Read more

Why I need to put ME first.

Friday, October 04, 2013      5 comments

I know the title of this blog may come off a little selfish/self-centered. But if you know me, you know that I NEVER put myself first. My priorities are my child and my husband. Their needs are always before mine. Always. I stay up l... Read more

Monday, August 19, 2013      6 comments

As with every other attempt I have made, this re-start has been rough. I KNOW what I need to do, I am just not making myself do it. Zero willpower. Zero motivation. But, now my husband is feeling the "yuck" I have been dealing with for mon... Read more

If You're Tired of Starting Over..Stop Giving Up!

Monday, June 24, 2013      4 comments

This is my new motto. Because I feel like I have done nothing but start over since I hit my goal weight 2 years ago and then gained it ALL back. I am tired of posting the "I am ready to try this again" blogs. I am tired of yo-yo'ing on the scale... Read more
