"Thank you, Becky. That is really sweet. I lost about 70 lbs after having my son, but what really changed things with my body was the exercise (specifically lifting). I was only about 8 lbs different than my previous lowest weight before I got…"

"It will come back. You worked very hard for that and can do it again!! How much did u lose again? You look amazing. Not sure I will ever see a body like that. It's hard when u have little ones to get "me" time. Keep up the good work"

My Y just added a new class and I'm loving it. It is half cardio spin (which I have never tried before) and half strength (tabata type) workout. The spin part is definitely something I am going to have to work on. It is a completely different kind…See More

Hotel Cooking Meal 1: Turkey Sausage and Vegetables Over Rice

Hello from Beavercreek, Ohio! I’m camping out here for a couple of weeks helping my mom train my niece’s service dog. We’ve got a hotel room with a small kitchen and have committed to cooking more instead of eating out so much. It’s cheaper, healthier and easy! Well, at least that’s what I want to show. (Notice I didn’t say easIER but it is easy.) This afternoon we stopped at Aldi and picked up enough food for 3 complete meals. Total cost: $26.21 On [...]

Steel-Cut Oat Breakfast Recovery Smoothie

Steel Cut Breakfast Recovery Smoothie
Every morning, bright and early you can find me at the gym. I lift heavy, hang out with the morning crew and get my sweat on. It’s ingrained now. I can’t imagine starting my day any other way. I used to have time to make breakfast for myself when I got home. Then as the kids got older and time got tighter, I was forced to give one of those powdered recovery shakes a try. It was OK, but I’d rather get my [...]

Simple Quinoa With Strawberries

Quinoa with Strawberries
A few days before I left for vacation — click here if you want to see the adventure I took with the boys! — I spatchcocked a whole chicken and cooked it on the grill. Cleaning up I couldn’t throw away the bones. I just couldn’t. So I grabbed a pot, pulled out some frozen celery hearts (I freeze scraps now specifically for this) and decided to make stock. The only problem: my [...]

Single-Serve Chocolate-Avocado Pudding

Bowl of Single-Serve Chocolate Avocado Pudding
I made avocado pudding for the first time a few years ago and was absolutely shocked. The texture of whipped avocado is creamy deliciousness and makes a wonderful frosting-like texture. It was something Evan loved as a baby simply blended with frozen blueberries and banana. Now I make it as a snack for myself and have finally figured out the perfect combination to whip up a single serving of avocado pudding! I decided to [...]

Blueberry Salad with Northern Beans and Corn

Bowl of Blueberry Salad with Northern Beans and Corn
I shared the story of this dish a little on my weight-loss blog — click here. Basically it was my answer to a crappy morning. I’ve really gotten good at medicating my mood by getting creative in the kitchen and blasting angry music. I know. I’m weird. Anyway, this salad came out AMAZING!  I’m starting to realize that happens a lot when you simply put fresh, in season, yummy ingredients together which is basically all I did. It may sound like [...]

My Y just added a new class and I'm loving it. It is half cardio spin (which I have never tried before) and half strength (tabata type) workout. The spin part is definitely something I am going to have to work on. It is a completely different kind of workout than I have ever done before. My quads are burning the whole time and I have a hard time when we have to stand for extended periods. The strength portion is a lot more what I am used to. We use resistance bands, agility ladder, and body…

I have a plan

Posted by Paula on August 26, 2015 at 11:49pm 1 Comment

I have been floundering. I am sick & tired of where I am at. A good friend recommended OA. It is simple & doable. Frankly I have an eating issue and I want to get over it. It starts with a 30 day program. I want to do a bit more preparing & I like to have a starting line. It is almost the 1st of August so I am going to start then. I am going to try to post for each of those 30 days. Has anyone here followed this diet? Feed back please if you have.

Beginning again

Posted by Ana on August 25, 2015 at 2:49pm 1 Comment

I have always been struggling with my weight. It's been an item on my list of things to take care of for quite some time not but I don't seem to get to it. In 2013 I Decided to join a dieting program which worked, I lost 40 lbs. the problem was that it wasn't practical. It was one of those that said you didn't have to work out and it restricted my food enormously that when I started eating again and on my own I gained most of it back.

So here I am trying to start over but in a more… Continue

Sacrifice Is a Necessary Evil

Posted by Flipper B on August 25, 2015 at 11:20am 3 Comments

I have been thinking a lot about sacrifice.  In order to accomplish this monumental feat (and all weight loss is a monumental feat) you have to be willing to accept some degree of sacrifice.  Everyone's sacrifice is different.  I think it used to be easier for me to sacrifice.  My kids are older and demand more of my attention (I homeschool). My husband's job is more demanding and he is home  less to help.  So now I sacrifice my time, my sleep, my cleanliness of my home. (this one drives me…


Lesson #3: Hard Work Pays Off

Posted by Lynn on August 24, 2015 at 11:45am 1 Comment

But it is so stinking HARD!!!

It's been about a month and I am down 15 pounds  I have given up soda and it is been HARD but worth it.  I really need to focus on the next step of this journey ~ whatever that may be.  It feels great to have that weight off me, and I want to lose even more but I want to make sure that I do things the right way this time so I can make changes that will last me a lifetime.

Gratitude Time

Posted by Paula on August 23, 2015 at 10:50am 1 Comment

I was reading my past posts. Ugh, are they negative. I really need to focus on the positive. So here are some good things that have happened to me lately.

1. My medical insurance kicked in 2/3 of my recent root-canal bill. (I figured it would be zero)

2. My check engine light came on. Took it in & it was a sensor of some sort. It fell under the warranty.

3. I have kept 8 pounds off for over 2 months.

I really want to focus on the good rather than the bad. I… Continue

Weekly Check in - 8/22

Posted by Paula on August 22, 2015 at 4:04pm 2 Comments

Weight - 0 pounds lost. At least I did not gain.

Exercise - jogged 2 times & walked 2 times. It rained 2 days so I misses 2 days, but it doesn't hurt to take a break.

Food - not the best week for sure. Ate too much snacks & not enough greens.

Mood - So tired of not getting anywhere with this damn weight loss. No loss erodes desire to keep going.

A Picture Surprise

Posted by Christy on August 21, 2015 at 9:56pm 3 Comments

Ever seen a picture of yourself and been surprised by what you see? Happened to me all the time at my highest weight. Don't get me wrong, I knew I was overweight and that I didn't like what I saw in the mirror--but it seemed like pictures were even worse. Seeing myself in pictures was one of the first motivators for me to let me know that I had to do something. For example, this picture taken after I had my son in 2012.…


I think this helps

It would be fantastic if BTL had an app. I think thats why its to hard to blog. But blogging helps!  I need to just suck it up and get it done!  I still havent reached my goal.  I am up and down emotionally and physically.  I have been lazy this year. But I want to finish this year.  I am on a running streak today is day 234 I already ran 1 mile this AM. Today I commit to myself to be better to do better.  I have already lost 90lbs I CAN do the rest.  I can be MY BEST. I don't know how many…
