When I began my weight loss journey, I never thought it would be so noticeable. I didn't see myself as overweight or obese. Now, I get constant compliments and praise from friends and family. One aunt even asked where I left the rest of me. I'm ... Read more

Finally got out for a nice long walk with the boys. Four miles around my neighborhood. I did it in 60 min! Last fall it took at least 80 min. and I was exhausted afterwards. One of the non-weight related rewards to getting healthy again. Then, I... Read more

I can't make good choices when I go out to eat. I'm fine for lunch..i.e. will make a good choice at subway and skip McDonald's. Put me in a real restaurant with GOOD food and I crumble. I can't resist the fish fry with french fries, the juicy mu... Read more

I hate the bad days. It is so hard to not get swallowed up by the regret. Forget the blown day and move on. It's easy to think it, but hard to let go. I had a bad snack attack last night. Haven't done that in a long time. My calories went well o... Read more
