I stepped on the scale this morning and was pleasantly surprised with the number that stared back at me. 155.2! I did not gain a single ounce over the holidays. Can I just tell you that’s NEVER happened. Except maybe when I was 7, or something like that. One-fifty-five-point-two. Goodbye forever. My … [Read more…]

So I took my own advice and had a small serving of only the dishes I really wanted. All 10 of them. … [Read more…]

Why do we over eat around the holidays? That’s simple! There’s an abundance of tasty treats and delicious dishes just hanging around begging to sampled, tasted, tested, and gobbled up. I remember when I worked in an office. Good gracious, the conference room, the break room, the kitchen, they were … [Read more…]

I just logged into Weight Watchers online for the first time since October 9, 2008. Sheesh. Talk about embarrassing. It’s a good thing Weight Watchers can’t nudge me like people on Twitter.

Hi, I’m Christy, and I’m no stranger to this whole weight loss thing. As an adult, I’ve always struggled with my weight. It was never completely out of control, but it seemed like I always had an extra 20 pounds on my frame. When I got pregnant with my son in December of 2002, I was at an all time … [Read more…]
