Hi friends! I'm so glad to say that I lost one whole pound at my WW meeting on Saturday morning! I was actually quite surprised because I had pretty much thrown in the towel by Thursday. I knew my weigh-in was only two days away, and fear... Read more
My progress (or lack thereof) while on Weight Watchers so far
Sunday, August 23, 2015      11 comments

Hi SparkFriends! First, I feel so bad about not being as active on here as I used to be. I absolutely LOVE SP but sometimes it can be SO time-consuming! I definitely stay busy and don't always have time to reply to blog post comments, send go... Read more
Sorry I took a hiatus from SP but I'm back again! :)

Hi friends! I've received such sweet messages from all of you about missing me being away from SP for a few months. Honestly, it wasn't intentional. I joined Weight Watchers at the end of March, and I got so engrossed in the program that I di... Read more

Last night my husband and I had a heart-to-heart. He'd come home from work around 8:30 pm (he's a CPA and works insane hours during tax season), and I felt horrible because the house was a wreck. I usually spend my free time when Dylan's occup... Read more

I've been in such a weight loss rut for the last two weeks, so I'm VERY happy to say that yesterday I broke the streak of failing to track all my calories, failing to work out, and failing to make healthy choices with my eating. Here's what... Read more

Wednesday, February 18, 2015      7 comments

I learned another important lesson tonight about perseverance, and I think this will continue to be a HUGE one for me! I need to ignore the little excuse voices in my head, the ones that have held me back over and over for so many years, and ju... Read more
Lesson Learned #1 - I need to make changes I can live with for the rest of my life.
Tuesday, February 17, 2015      6 comments

The longer I've been trying to lose weight, the more I seem to learn about myself and the process. I keep having these little "ah-ha" moments (Oprah!) that really make me mentally stop in my tracks and say to myself, "Girl, you need to remember... Read more

Friday, February 13, 2015      13 comments

Hi friends! Here we go again... I've been off of SparkPeople for a few weeks, and for the same reason that I usually am - because I've NOT been doing well at losing weight. Honestly, I'm almost ashamed to log back in when I've gone several day... Read more

I'm a firm believer that everything happens for a reason. I'm not super religious, but I'm Christian and trying to reconnect with God and leaning on him more as I struggle with my weight... But anyway... So yesterday, a couple of fun... Read more

Let's be honest. A new year isn't really all that different than the few days before it, but it sure FEELS new! I was so, so excited for a new year because I've continued to gain and gain and gain weight through 2014. And yesterday, I weighed... Read more
I haven't been on track the last few days! UGH. 'Tis the season!

I'm so disappointed that I haven't been on track the last few days. I haven't been tracking my food or working out. I've pretty much given myself permission every day since Friday to eat whatever I want, and I haven't been to the gym since las... Read more
