Gratitude and My Ultimate Why: March 15, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

This week I have done hard things in regards to my weight loss and overall health journey. On Monday, I once again weighed in at the heaviest I have ever been: 262.5 lbs.  On Tuesday, I told my therapist I couldn't stop binge eating and we worked through coping mechanisms that could help.  On Wednesday, … Continue reading Gratitude and My Ultimate Why: March 15, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

Current Feels: March 5, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

I've gained every single damn pound back plus one. And all it took was two days of overeating and binge eating. IT'S THAT BAD, Y'ALL. I feel like blogging and yet I don't have anything I really want to talk about tonight. I've saved a bunch of Noom articles I wanted to talk about at … Continue reading Current Feels: March 5, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

Getting Caught Up: February 20, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

The last day I checked in on my Noom app... *sigh*... was Feb 9. What am I doing? What am I waiting for? I enjoy my Noom app. I am enjoying reading the articles and chatting with my goal coach and learning about my body and metabolism and all the things. I'm enjoying reaching my … Continue reading Getting Caught Up: February 20, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

Good Choices, Bad Calorie Count: January 24, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

So today was a "meh" kind of day. I was running late (as always) and skipped breakfast (as always). Instead of stopping for McDonald's (my usual habit), I grabbed two cereal bars from the pantry - one for me, one for the kiddo. Good choice. Well, kiddo loved his so much, he also ate mine, … Continue reading Good Choices, Bad Calorie Count: January 24, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

And With Every High Comes a Low: January 21, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

I want to make this blog a real thing, so to do that, I've gotta be as transparent as I can be without disappearing into thin air. 😉 This weekend has been a LOW. Low, low, low. Gained two pounds back, stopped logging into Noom, and have eaten (I can't believe I'm about to admit … Continue reading And With Every High Comes a Low: January 21, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

Just Another Blog Post: Archive from July 12, 2017: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

Alright everyone, I've put this off long enough. It's time for another blog post. I've got my Josh Garrels playing in the background, my coffee is hot, and my water bottle is full. Confession time. Since my last post, I've GAINED 15 lbs. 15. That's quite a lot in only 3 months time. I've tossed … Continue reading Just Another Blog Post: Archive from July 12, 2017: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

The Micro-Changes that Didn’t: Archive from January 30, 2017: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

So I'm not sure where I went wrong. My first three weeks of micro-changes went fairly well. New habits established. Healthy attitudes. Consistent positivity. Then Week 4 hit, with new challenges. I really didn't change all that much. 10 jumping jacks to 15. Set my alarm for 15 minutes earlier and change the snooze amount. … Continue reading The Micro-Changes that Didn’t: Archive from January 30, 2017: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com
