New year - New me?
Sunday, December 29, 2013      2 comments

I have to be the most undisciplined person I know. I want nothing more than to lose weight and in the next moment I'm like sure I'll have dessert. ... Read more
One More Time
Monday, November 11, 2013      3 comments

I can't believe it's been over a year and I'm still as heavy as ever. Will I ever learn? If being thin was easy - everyone would be thin. I just can't seem to focus on the goal. I need some motivation and drive, not to mention will power. I hope... Read more
Not focusing on the scale
Sunday, June 03, 2012      1 comments

It is so hard to not focus on the number at my feet as I step on the scale. I know I shouldn't weigh everyday, but it is nearly impossible for me not to get hung up and almost obsessed with getting out of bed and weighing in the morning. It's li... Read more
Falling and Getting Back UP
Monday, May 28, 2012      1 comments

I sad to say I have fallen off the healthy wagon and have allowed myself to gain 11 pounds. Ugh!! You would think that I would remember how hard I have worked to take off those 11 pounds, but obviously that is not the case. I tend to find it eas... Read more
Accountability
Monday, November 21, 2011      2 comments

As much as I hate the word...accountability is what is keeping me on track. I knew the scale was not going to be kind this week, even though I followed WW every day. I weigh each day (I just can't help myself) and it has been a battle this week.... Read more
Busy Schedule Ups and Downs
Wednesday, November 16, 2011      1 comments

I own two weekly newspapers that my husband and I run by ourselves. We cover 5 high schools and 5 junior highs which means we are busy all the time. Our schedules were easier during football and volleyball season but basketball season has starte... Read more
Things I Want Back (weigh in)
Monday, November 14, 2011      4 comments

Once again, I barely missed my goal of averaging 3 pounds per week. I lost 2.4 pounds this week. emoticon I'm not d... Read more
Holidays and Life
Sunday, November 13, 2011      4 comments

I absolutely LOVE Christmas. It's never been about the food, which is great for me. It is however all about family and decorating the house. I really look forward to our three (now four as one got married) come home for a couple of weeks at Chri... Read more
To Apple Pie or Not to Apple Pie
Tuesday, November 08, 2011      3 comments

I have some amazing friends and I so enjoy being surprised by them. However, a freshly baked, still warm apple pie is not the kind of surprise I need right now. I could smell the cinnamon and apples and the steam was still coming off the beautif... Read more
Rainy day and weigh in
Monday, November 07, 2011      2 comments

I live in southwest Kansas and it has been a desert here but today the skies have opened up and it is pouring down rain. It's gotta be a great day!! I was once again traveling for business this past weekend but surprisingly not only stuck to my ... Read more
Thankful for second, third and ### second chances
Friday, November 04, 2011      6 comments

Sometimes it is hard to remember that weight does not make you who you are, what's inside does. The exterior and interior of a person does not always match. Inside of me is a healthy person screaming to get out. I find that I have taken mirrors,... Read more
End of Week 2....Start of Week 3 of the rest of my life
Monday, October 31, 2011      3 comments

Weigh in was not a great experience this week but on the upside I didn't gain weight. Staying even when traveling and eating at family functions is somewhat of a victory for me. (It helped my attitude when my husband gained 2 pounds) ... Read more
Weekends
Sunday, October 30, 2011      2 comments

Why are weekends so hard? Even when I spend the weekend working I find it hard not to fill up on garbage. I know it is going to take some retraining of my habits but I find myself wishing for weekdays only. Monday through Friday is so structured... Read more
Weigh-In Day #1
Monday, October 24, 2011      3 comments

I know it is going to sound like sour grapes but I always have hopes of more loss on weigh-in day. I lost 6.6 pounds. I know in my head that that is a great weight loss for a week, and I'm happy but at the same time I'm a little disappointed. Do... Read more
Surviving weekends
Sunday, October 23, 2011      1 comments

I work a ton and am normally busy in the evening, which helps a lot with cutting out snacking. The problem I have is when the sports I cover for work come to a close and my weekends are free. Being stuck in the 'house' (I live in my business) fo... Read more
