Small Victories

June 19, 2014

Sometimes it’s all about the small victories. Such as: Ordering a Greek Salad when out to dinner with a friend, when I REALLY wanted a burger and fries Packing leftover turkey burgers for 3 days worth of lunches (when going out of town) to avoid grabbing fast food Only eating 3-4 fries when Chick-Fil-A gives […]

Weight Loss and Sticking to a Budget Go Hand in Hand

June 18, 2014

Whew! We are 4 weeks in to summer, and so far we are doing a pretty good job of keeping busy. I’m trying really hard to be more active, which isn’t something that comes naturally to me. I would be happy to sit on the patio with coffee or iced tea and read all day […]

End of the Week Ramblings + Weight Watchers Update

June 6, 2014

I came across the image above when I was trolling Facebook earlier, and my first thought to fill in the blank was HUNGRY! I thought it might be inappropriate to leave a comment saying that, so instead I thought I would write over here instead. ;-) The truth is, my stomach is still adjusting to […]

Back at it…AGAIN

June 4, 2014

I have been quiet for awhile. There really hasn’t been much to say. I have been eating terribly, exercising sporadically and somehow maintaining my weight. And while this is some sort of a victory for me, it doesn’t really feel like it, because I’m not making any progress. I have been attending Weight Watchers meetings – […]

Trigger Foods: My Biggest Vacation Tempations

April 6, 2014

Trigger Foods: Anything made of  food. Ha! I saw that on Pinterest this morning and it made me laugh. So. We just got back from a 9 day trip to Florida late last night. It was fabulous and warm and sometimes relaxing. (As relaxing as it can be with 2 young kids – although as […]

Weight Watchers Weigh In – Week 4

March 27, 2014

Well so far I haven’t been as consistent in reporting my progress with Weight Watchers as much as I would like, but I’m going to keep hacking away at it. In the past 3 weeks I missed one meeting and went to two meetings – one of which I only weighed in. I haven’t been tracking […]

Weight Watchers Weigh In – Week 1

March 7, 2014

Thursday is my weigh in day. I’m still trying to decide how (IF) I want to report this info on a regular basis on the blog. I technically started Weight Watchers on 11/7/13, but I have not fully followed the program since the week before Christmas. I guess what I’ll do to catch you up is […]

Baby Steps

March 5, 2014

The past week has seen a little progress. I am back to tracking off and on, and I’m trying really hard to write it all down even if I am hopelessly over my points for the day. My oldest daughter turned 8 last week, so the last 7 days have been filled with cake, ice […]

My Reasons for Wanting to Lose the Weight

March 4, 2014

There are good and bad, right and wrong reasons to lose weight. As a teen I lost weight for the wrong reasons. Now that I’m in my mid-thirties, I’m trying to lose weight for the right ones. First and foremost, I know that I have to want to lose the weight for ME, and not […]

You Can’t Out-Exercise a Bad Diet

February 21, 2014

You can’t out exercise a bad diet. I am the poster child for this statement. In 2011 I made the decision to get my butt in the gym and start taking my health seriously again. It had been years since I had followed a regular fitness routine, and after the birth of my 2 girls […]
