I have been struggling with food a lot for the past couple of weeks. It probably has something to do with being completely stressed out. At one point, I even thought about just quitting Weight Watchers. I felt like everything was out of contr... Read more

It is possible that I may have been just a tiny bit hard on myself for my poor food dalliances while Ms. Bean was visiting. For weeks, I had been reading tales from other Weight Watcher’s members where they went on vacation, did not stick to pl... Read more

All I have to say about my decision to stay on plan while my niece was visiting is: The best laid plans and all that jazz. The dirty truth is, it all started off well enough. For the first 10 days or so, I was SOLID with my eating plan. Some... Read more

Can I just start by singing, Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah? This week, I lost another 2.2 pounds. That makes my total lost 27 pounds thus far! I will so take that!! I was really unsure that I would lose again this week. I have been doing a lot of d... Read more

Today is just one of those days where there is a really dark cloud hanging over my head. It is the kind of day where, not so long ago, I would have let my emotions get the best of me and I would have gone on a day-long binge. I have always bee... Read more
Reward System Breakdown

I wrote before about my reward system. I am certainly not the only person who self-rewards pounds lost with a charm bracelet. Around the time I joined Weight Watchers, I decided that for each 5 pounds I lose, I will buy a charm for a Pandora s... Read more

For a long, long time (at least as long as I can remember), I have been a night person. Even before I gained all of the weight and decided that I felt more comfortable going out at night because there are fewer people about, I preferred to be u... Read more

I found out recently that my niece is coming for a visit at the beginning of August. When she was young and I still lived in Michigan, the two of us were best buds. I spent nearly every weekend at my sister’s house and we took a lot of small ... Read more

I love my husband. Most of the time, he is very supportive of my decisions. Like any married couple, though, we have occasional little spats. Yesterday, I had planned to cook a nice healthy dinner but as the temperatures soared, my resol... Read more
Out of the Shadows

A number of years ago, I had this acquaintance that I would have lunch with about once a week. I use the word acquaintance because no friend would make statements to a person like those she made to me. It was a song I had heard many times befo... Read more

I can’t really put my finger on exactly what it is but I feel like something is different since I started Weight Watchers. Maybe I just had to get to a certain point in my life before everything clicked into place and flipped the switch. Maybe... Read more

I was born into a family that was no stranger to weight issues. Both my parents were always overweight and many of my siblings have dealt with weight issues. I never remember a time in my life when I wasn't over weight. I never remember a tim... Read more
