It is amazing what difference a week can make. I made all the right decisions this week and I got the reward yesterday when I stepped on the scale and lost 4 lbs. Now to just keep it going. That's the hardest part. I set myself a goal last... Read more

Friday, October 14, 2011      1 comments

It has been a long couple of months. A year ago I was 3 weeks away from my wedding and I wasn't nearly as "skinny" as I wanted to be for a bride (far away from goal weight) but I knew I felt good in my dress and felt beautiful. A year later I fe... Read more

Ok when I say I can see the light at the end of the tunnel I don't mean my end goal is near, I am talking about the sun and the spring and leaving all the winter depression behind. I always knew that I had a mild form of seasonal depression. It ... Read more

I set my first mini goal. I wanted to lose about 5% of my weight by March 1st. Over the last 2 weeks I was concerned that might not happen. With the gain last week I just felt so blah with myself, but I got back on track and managed to get back ... Read more

Ok I was doing so good up until Thursday. I had a good day and then went to the gym and worked my tail off. Went out to dinner that night with my cousin and figured you know what - one meal, I'll eat what I want and just live it up. That's why I... Read more

I survived my first week of 2010 back on track with healthy eating. I drank a lot of water (something I was really lacking for a while there), kept track of portions and the types of food I was eating. I became more aware of balancing my diet an... Read more

Ok I feel like I just wrote this same blog a year ago and I have no idea where the 12 months went between the last one. 2009 went by in a blur and I feel like I accomplished nothing as far as my weight. I'm heavier today than I ever was and I fe... Read more

I do believe you have to hit rock bottom before a spiral out of control ever ends. At least for me. Sunday night was just that. After a 9 hour road trip from Norfolk, VA back home to NJ with a pit stop in Maryland I got home to realize my whole ... Read more
