I get a GOLD STAR for yesterday!

Derailment last night....
I veered off the road a little last night. I had a binge...it is something I have not done in a long time. Surprised I even could, given the fact that I can't eat much anymore. However, I realized that it was because I was feeling negative emoti... Read more
The Light Switch of Weight Loss
This week, my WW leader had a very good point and I think I just lived it this Sunday! He was talking about getting "unstuck" with weight loss. Sometimes we lose motivation, are stressed, etc and derail ourselves from our goals. There comes a po... Read more
86 Days Until My HS Reunion...Wow!

Very Important Life Realization....
The more you do something you don't want to do, the more unhappy you make your life. The more unhappy you make you life, the more you rely on your vices. The more you rely on your vices, in my case, the more you weigh!
Well...I think I mad... Read more
My own little saboteur is a micro-suede love seat! And his sidekick is my beautiful flat screen!
I am convinced of this! This morning I had every intention of having gone to the grocery store, Target and pay my bills by 11am so I can go to the beach and relax. Well, I made a healthy breakfast this morning and thought I would turn on the tub... Read more

Really? I wasn't eating enough? That's a first!
So...I have realized that I was not eating enough, based on my daily needs and accounting for the gym time. I was staying within my calories (1200-1550), but I think my count needs to be higher. I lost a little more this week when I realized I w... Read more

Scale Addiction...yes, time for a 4 day challenge!
So...I am addicted to weighing myself. I weigh myself every morning and it provides me with some sort of control. However, it can be very misguiding too. If I did well, but the scale shows something else, I get upset and usually end up eating no... Read more
Interesting realization...Food, time and TV
So, when I am eating healthy...I have more time on my hands because I am not spending my time constantly preparing food or eating in front of the TV. I have also noticed over the last few days, that TV has been a very different experience when y... Read more
I always thought reading labels meant looking at the nutritional values...
I am on day 3 of my Detox, no processed foods, no dairy and no gluten type foods. A diet of lean protein and veggies was recommended by my doctor and I tried for 2 weeks, but was only able to limit my carbs to 2 servings a day. I was still havin... Read more
