One part of this journey... and Yes, I continue to be on this journey... that is good for me is journaling. Getting it down in writing. I do most of this on paper, but here, I need to own some of this too. I see other people's success as obstacl... Read more

I have not been logging in and tracking as much as I should be. I'm sure if I did the weight would be coming off more quickly. I'm trying not to overwhelm myself though because I've noticed a trend where in the past when I start something and I ... Read more

One of my biggest obstacles to overcome on this journey is my negativity and negative self-talk. How on earth do I overcome this? I saw some pictures posted tonight of myself. This was shocking for two reasons. First, we don't have any full leng... Read more

After an "Ah-ha" moment last night in the dressing room at the store I thought long and hard about what has been going on for me over the last year. Two years. Three years. A loooong time. It just sort of made sense last night in a way it hasn't... Read more

I want to write this down so I can re-read this and keep reminding myself not to overdo things. Getting "back on track" for me has come to mean starting back out too hard and going too fast. Even with just walking. On Friday I walked 3.5 miles a... Read more

Well. I thought by just logging activity and "paying more attention" to what I was eating I would get myself on track and start losing. Obviously that's not happening. I was out playing in the snow with my son today and my husband snapped a few ... Read more

Looking back over my week's meals I noticed a trend. When I eat a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast (which I usually add a tsp of brown sugar to and 2-3 tablespoons of homemade applesauce to) I tend to have no snacks in the morning and with a nice... Read more

Well, I emotionally ate today. First, today begins that "lovely" TOM for me. :{ Second, was at MIL's house this afternoon and the stress/anxiety led me to eat 2 chocolate graham crackers. Now, 130 calories/serving, not the end of the world, but ... Read more

I was thinking about when to do my weigh ins, should I do it weekly or monthly or just go by clothes? I was leaning towards monthly because as I read today on someone's page I like to see big numbers too or I tend to feel defeated. I realized I... Read more
