Well, here I am again. Starting over for the umpteenth time. Just can't seem to stay motivated long enough to see a difference in my measurements. I really don't pay too much attention to the scale because if I have a gain, I get frustrated a... Read more

I know that Rome wasn't built in a day and my body did not become fat just overnight. It took 5 pregnancies and 3 failed marriages for me to lose all self-esteem and let myself go down the tubes. I am really paying for all that "comfort food" ... Read more

Remove it, Don't Lose It
Friday, February 06, 2009      0 comments

I like what I read in one of the team pages that you should think of your weight loss as removing it instead of losing it. I find that if I lose something (pounds) and I find it (pounds) then I haven't progressed any and get frustrated and depr... Read more

My day went by real fast because I was so busy at work. I had my lunch bag with my daily tracked snacks right next to me to I wasn't tempted to go to the cafeteria and buy something out of the vending machine that is not good for me. I had a p... Read more

As I read the article, "confessions of a Reformed Procrastinator", I felt like I had written it because what it says is exactly how I feel. It states in the article, "We're stressed when we procrastinate. But then we also procrastinate when we... Read more
