Day one of our “dreaming of a light Christmas” challenge and I am ready. My goals are in place and my skinny jeans are waiting for me. I can hear them rooting for me already. (they are tired of being way back in the closet!) So if you check tout my numbers page here, you can see that since this site … [Read more…]

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…]

The holidays have kicked my butt. Having friends over and cooking and cleaning (non-stop) and running errands have taken their toll on me. And my butt. I’m so ready for the challenge, which starts tomorrow! So ready. I’m ready to take control of what goes into my mouth and I’m ready for some … [Read more…]

So, how did everyone do over the holiday weekend? I did not do so hot myself. I had a little bit of every dish for dinner, but I also had a few more beers than necessary. And my self-control this weekend was all downhill from there. We went to stay with Justin at the rig for a few days, and I’m … [Read more…]

Lets see, if I do the math correctly (yes i’m counting on my hand…sheesh)today is the 6th day of my new weight loss journey. 6 days already? really? wow. Most importantly, I still feel really good about it. Although I haven’t recorded every meal for each day, I did plan out my breakfast, snacks … [Read more…]

The day is here, Thanksgiving, the day where families sit around and eat. Then a few hours later after our naps we go and eat again. Well I just want to remind everyone that you hold the power. The power of self control. Before you set out for the day make a plan. Plan your attack on Thanksgiving … [Read more…]

I wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving! Enjoy your time with your families and loved ones. Enjoy the food… in MODERATION. Portion control is so, so tough on holidays, but so important if we want to stay on our path to thinness!! Don’t forget our first weight loss challenge is approaching … [Read more…]

On Monday, I weighed 157. Today I weighed 155.8! YES! It’s a step in the right direction. Of course tomorrow is Turkey day and I’m a little concerned, but you know what? This loss is EXACTLY what I needed. Isn’t it funny how a loss can really put you in the right frame of mind? It makes you want to … [Read more…]

When people hope to lose weight, there is usually a big motivator right?  A wedding, to lose baby weight or even a vacation. I have had every single one of those reasons, but yet it for some reason or another I never made it work for me. Now??? I want to change that. I need to change that. After … [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…]

It’s been 24 hours since I started to monitor what I eat and how I eat.  You know what the hardest part for me was today? The office at work. Yes, that room where everyone brings donuts and cookies each Monday. Those evil so and so’s. Don’t they know I’m trying to be good here? Nope. So while … [Read more…]
