I guess 2008 was not a total loss as far as weight loss went. I overall lost 17 pounds and only gained back 12 so I am still 5 pounds lighter than I was at this time last year. At this rate, it will take over 10 years to reach my goal but I am... Read more

Four weeks have gone by and I am happy to say that I have lost almost 12lbs. Unfortunately most of that weight was lost in the first two weeks as expected. I did let myself get a little off track but I did add exercise into my daily routine dur... Read more

I love, love, love going out to eat but now that I am dieting, I find it rather difficult. Actually, I think now that I am dieting, I am realizing where I may have put on most of my weight. When I cook at home, the process starts when I gro... Read more

Seven pounds in nine days! Talk about having something to keep me motivated! I love seeing the progress on the scale but what I found almost as exciting today is that my pants felt looser. Now for my bad news. I had a brief weak moment to... Read more

I cheated today but I do not feel bad about it. I told myself that I would only weigh weekly but I couldn't wait. So this morning, I woke up and (sound the horns) I showed a loss of 4lbs in 3 days. I have been eating 3 meals a day and have ha... Read more

Last night before I left work I searched through my desk drawers and threw out and gave away any snacks and lunches that I knew that would not fit into my new lifestyle. What I found in there amazed me when I read the labels and saw how many ca... Read more
