Struggling with the decision to maintain
Tuesday, May 31, 2016      5 comments

I've never gotten to this point before. I got to my goal weight and then some. Would I love to lose more...absolutely! But I'm so scared I'll fall off the wagon before I try my hand at maintaining. That's what's always happened before. I lose a ... Read more

Superbowl recovery
Monday, February 08, 2016      2 comments

Days like Superbowl Sunday tend to be my downfall. I like consistency and I can rarely give into to temptation without getting derailed but at the same time I do not have the willpower to say no to all the tasty goodies. So, like always, I convi... Read more
