I had my monthly weigh it today and I lost 12 lbs the month of October! This puts me at 27 lbs lost with 53 more to go. I was very happy this morning. However, after battling my weight for the past 12 yrs I recognize that this is the point where... Read more

Saturday, October 31, 2009      7 comments

I get asked a lot about how I can stand to only weigh myself once a month. For me, it is not difficult, not a struggle, not even a challenge. I have been between 175 and 210 pounds for the past 11 years and I have tried countless times to lose t... Read more

I am not eating enough. This is the number one trap I wanted to avoid. This has happened to me so many times in my past attempts at losing weight and it always leads to failure. I know that it will be huge contributor to any future plateaus I ma... Read more

I put on a blouse this morning that the last time I wore was very tight... I was actually afraid I was going to lose a button, lol. Today I put it on and WOW! It draped on me like a tent. I had to wear it because I wasn't used to it feeling so b... Read more

I have been thinking a lot about my 13 yr old son and starting to worry. He is at the very top of normal for his weight. A pound or two more and he will be considered overweight. When he has his shirt off he has the little "man boobs" and has q... Read more

The day was going pretty good. I had my frozen, VANS Belgian waffles with my natural PB and jelly (light on both the PB & J) and my 2 cups of coffee with cream and Splenda for breakfast (0600). Did my hour of cardio at the gym. For lunch (1130) ... Read more

Well, one of these days I am going to get to see a personal trainer! I already took the first step and left my number for someone to call me. That was HUGE for me. I kept having all of these stupid messages run through my mind like: "they are g... Read more

This made my day today...

I have blogged before about being scared to begin weight/strength training because I felt intimidated by the young boys (airmen) who over run the gym on the military base and just overwhelmed by all of the equipment in there. I really didn't kno... Read more
Old Habits- NOT this time!!!
Monday, October 19, 2009      0 comments

Not really a whole lot going on today. I was deeply offended last night by a comment that was made to me by someone who I love and respect and I felt those old instincts of turning to overeating surface. My mind was trying to tell me that I coul... Read more
