Not sure what the heck is wrong with me, I cannot seem to stop eating! Is it emotional? Stress? Who knows? All I know is I cant breathe in any of my clothes anymore, and I have ripped my winter jacket because it was too tight! Its been a... Read more

I got off to a great start in my weight loss journey for the first 3 months of the year, but kinda fell off the wagon. My eating became willy-nilly, higgly-piggly. Lucky for me I didn't gain anything back! As I am struggling to regain my ... Read more

Oh yeah, I remember when I used to "blog" and post and be active on here! Who knows what happened these last 6-8 weeks. I seemed to just drop off somewhere. I feel like the last month or two I have not focused on me at all, in any way. I... Read more

I feel like I had a "good day" today. I took over 15, 000 steps, stayed within my calorie limit, worked very hard at work and even squeezed in a 30 minute workout when I got home! Change takes time. Time and consistency. When I first bega... Read more

I love food. I love the taste, the texture, I just enjoy eating. I do suffer from emotional eating like the rest of us when I'm bored, lonely, depressed, etc. I ate too much at dinner yesterday simply because it tasted great and I was enjoyin... Read more

I finally found a fairly recent photograph of myself and uploaded it to my page. There is a reason of course that pictures of me are hard to find, I dont like what I see! I mean no offence to anyone that is larger than me, merely that I am alw... Read more

As I finish week 6 on my program and start week 7, I have learned that this is when most people fall off the wagon, and get off track. I certainly did that this past weekend, and have struggled with my eating this week. Not giving up though, I... Read more

I am so keen to trim down, it seems its all I think about these days. The scales are not favouring my efforts it seems though, 2 weeks straight with no loss. Dont get me wrong, I'm glad there is no gain, but would be nice to see it move a litt... Read more
This week's weigh in
Thursday, February 10, 2011      2 comments
