In my last blog post I talked my struggle with emotional eating and self control. Over the weekend I was talking to my husband about my food addiction. He looked at me slack-jawed and said that he didn't know I had such a problem with food... Read more

I just finished reading a WW blog about self control and I thought I'd share a quick story about my own experience. Amy and self-control have never been put in the same sentence. I would stop at the convenience store to get something sweet ... Read more

My gym got bought out and the women's only location I used to use is no longer open. My membership transferred over to the larger mixed gym but I have yet to go. I've never been one to exercise in front of other people. If my husband walks in ... Read more

Yesterday was a successful day on the fitness front but not so much on the food front. Actually, I shouldn't say that. My day was great, it was only my night that wasn't so hot. We went to Ben's aunt's house for his birthday dinner and she had m... Read more
