Favorite healthy recipes?
So eating lean cuisines and other things are really getting old. I want to start cooking/preparing my meals for the week... I also live alone.. I don't mind making a big batch of something and portioning it out for a week. I thought I would see ... Read more
So weird: I'm just not hungry...
I know it is mainly an emotional thing right now, and stress related as well. But what I don't understand is it is the exact opposite.. normally I would be wanting to eat everything I could get my hands on, but instead I just don't want to eat. ... Read more
Today I had to pick a side... the good... or the bad...
Last week, I started off SO WELL. I was exercising, eating right, I was on a roll. Towards the end of the week, I just stopped, for no reason. I started eating fast food again, and 1 "cheat day" turned into 4. Now I am back at work ready to star... Read more
Anyone else have trouble eating healthy at work?
It seems that I can do fine, but work always ends up getting to me. I work 12 hour graveyard shifts... I have no problem bringing my food and enough snacks to last throughout the night. I would say it's 50/50 at my work.. 1/2 of my coworkers are... Read more
Determined to make March *my* month!
This comes a few days late, as I just got back from a trip to Vegas to see my Grandma. I had a blast, and over 4 days we ate out for 2 meals, as opposed to the normal 4-7 meals out. I know weight takes a little while to show up... so I'm not pos... Read more
Time are a changin...;)
Went out to dinner with the family tonight... for appetizers they had buffalo wings.. I ate a celery stick and two of the carrot sticks that were on the side. I ordered a chicken salad... the kicker though? I didn't even eat half my salad before... Read more
The Scale Says What?
This is by no means any great accomplishment... but it comes down to this. I would say for the entire month of February, while partially dragging my feet, I could not get under 255 pounds. I think that is part of the reason I started to lose so ... Read more
All Talk And No Action...
I'd say that pretty much sums up how I've been for most of the month of February. No excuses, just pure laziness. I know I've been in a funk since my birthday... and I think it was just one of those things where I was wondering what life has in ... Read more
I'm In Such A Funk LOL
I'm so far beyond funk, that funk isn't even the right word. It's all been downhill since my birthday. I turned 24, and I know that to most people (as I've heard from pretty much everyone) that is not a big deal at all. For whatever reason, I to... Read more
Gee Mom, Way To Kick Me When I'm Down
So my earlier BLOG contained the comments of the skinny girls. Well it's just not my day. So the fine part is: my friend (the one I mentioned before that I went to Vegas with) said this to me: "The boys that like me actually like YOU, they just ... Read more
Not In The Mood For Skinny Girl Talk & New Routine
So as I sit at work, there are 3 computer in each "pod" as we call them. I am sitting with two girls, who I really enjoy. I even went to Vegas with one of them. Neither of them have weight issues, although one is pregnant. So the one I went to V... Read more
I don't know why I drag my feet...
I fall off the wagon, but I hop back on. It just seems like I'm dragging my feet at this point, and I don't know why lol. I've lost about 18-19 pounds, but I had already lost 15 probably by the beginning of December. I gained some back, lost it ... Read more
Being dragged behind the wagon...
I am the most inconsistent person over the past two weeks. Everything from my eating to my exercising. One day I'm perfect, the next I'm eating junk. I also have come to realize that I am one of those people who is OBSESSED with the scale, and i... Read more
New shoes, new dvd, new attitude!
So I really wanted those Shape Up shoes, but there was no way I was going to pay 100 bucks for them. Well my mom had 30 percent off at Kohl's, so they ended up being 70. I got ones that are just like black work shoes, so I can also wear them to ... Read more
I Am My Own Worst Enemy
I have tried to lose weight many times before... each time I always have some form of success. Whether that is 5 pounds or 40 pounds before I throw in the towel, I do have initial success. I read a BLOG on here it was talking about being afraid ... Read more
