The BLC is ending this week. I will miss my daily check ins, but since school starts for me tomorrow it's probably really good timing.
My plan to stay on track during the in between time is to simply follow my plan, one day at a time, one ... Read more
I've been at a standstill with my weight loss lately. I've been consistently on plan, yet still no loss or any decrease in inches. Oh, I'll lose a few pounds but then they'll come right back on, so the overall change this month is essentially ze... Read more
I was looking back on my goal tracking charts and I see a HUGE need for consistency. I am allowing way too many off plan days into my life. If this is to be a lifestyle change, and I really really want it to be that, I must work on making follow... Read more
A friend asked me what my motivation is to lose weight this time around, I've been regaining for over a year and am having a hard time getting and staying on track. Since this friend could see that I clearly am not sufficiently motivated by the ... Read more

I have struggled with bingeing for as long as I can recall. The first time I remember bingeing I was about 8 years old. I was left alone for long hours while my mom, a single parent, worked. I was very, very lonely. I remember finding a crock of... Read more

Thanksgiving is speeding towards us! I have nothing ready but the menu is pretty much set in stone by my daughter so that will be easy!
Turkey: simply cannot go without that! Simply roasted with garlic, lemon, and rosemary.

Yes, I know, the month is 1/3 over already, but that's the way things have been going lately!
October was not a fabulous month for me as far as putting my healthy habits in the forefront. I ended up gaining 0.3 pounds which isn't bad consid... Read more
I am going the wrong direction. I have been in a slump for most of September. I have gained to the point of being 200.5 yesterday morning. I really don't want to stay above that number! BUT, I know what to do and I'm not doing it. What's up with... Read more
For the past year or so I've been gaining and losing the same 5-10 pounds. I'll get serious, then get down to the low 180s and decide I "deserve" to try this or I want to eat that. As a result, I'm where I was a year ago. I look at it as practic... Read more
I've been struggling with staying on any food program lately and my weight and psyche both show it. I've been binging regularly, and not on cucumbers and celery sticks. I do know my spirit feels wounded. My relationship with food definitely need... Read more
