I just need to complain and throw a pity party for myself. I'm not usually one to complain so loudly but I'm losing it! Well we have had our pup for 10 days now. I feel like I have no idea what I'm doing and some days were good and others were ... Read more

Had a rough few days. My partner and I decided to go on a date on Saturday. There aren't many options in a small town so we went to the Chinese restaurant. I didn't go crazy but I wasn't counting. I didn't even make it home before I started gett... Read more

I'm 10 days without fast food/anything highly processed. I know that really sounds like nothing but I admit I find myself in line for cheeseburgers far more often than a person should be. I'm very proud and the other day the only thing that stop... Read more

No big deal. I can sleep in tomorrow, and I will :) I really set myself up for success this week and I feel good about it. Instead of just thinking about what meals I'll be eating for the week ahead, I wrote it all out. Bought my groceries acco... Read more

Can't believe I'm a non smoker. And I can't believe I've lost 13 lbs in the 6.5 weeks since not smoking. I have just been maintaining the weight loss for the last 2 weeks, but that's enough to make me proud. I feel like I have a new lease on l... Read more
