This week I have done hard things in regards to my weight loss and overall health journey.

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

Marking the Real Rewards: February 26, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

If you’ve been reading my blog since the beginning, you’ll remember that those first few posts concentrated heavily on rewards systems, but that I haven’t concentrated on it much this year. Simply put, my rewards stopped being motivating after a while. “Who cares if I haven’t lost five pounds yet? There’s really nothing stopping me … Continue reading Marking the Real Rewards: February 26, 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

It’s That Time Again!: January 2, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

Okay, folks. It's been over a year since my last update. In that time, I have gained 25 pounds, completely given up on my day planner, and forgot that vitamins even exist. New Year's always provides a fresh start. It's like that "reset button" for life.  There will be a lot of changes this year … Continue reading It’s That Time Again!: January 2, 2019: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

Here I Am Again, Singing the Same Old Tune: Archive from December 5, 2017: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

No one got the song lyric from my post in March, so I'm making it the title to see if anyone can guess. 😉 I know, I know, long-time-no-post.  Well here's the update. I gained 12 more lbs since my last blog post. I hit 237, caught sight of myself in a dressing room mirror, … Continue reading Here I Am Again, Singing the Same Old Tune: Archive from December 5, 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.

I Just Don’t Want To: Archive from May 8, 2017: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com

There comes a point when you're just happy with yourself because you're a "good person." I don't know what else to do or think about to make me motivated to lose all this weight. I started out really goal-centered, really positive, really motivated. I made lists and goals and plans and rewards and here it … Continue reading I Just Don’t Want To: Archive from May 8, 2017: Cross-Posted from SparkPeople.com
