Profile Information

About Me:
I have experienced many ups and downs over the past few years and I have been able to push through all of them except one. My weight. I lost a bunch of weight in 2012. I gained it all back plus some in 2013. In 2014 I maintained. The gain. Nothing worse than that in my book.

Along with the gain came health problems like terrible asthma attacks, anxiety, diabetes, and sleep apnea. All of which can be eliminated or significantly reduced if I lose the weight. So here I am on the verge of a new year needing to get this weight off.

It's a matter of life and death.

It's A Wash

Posted on February 1, 2015 at 7:39am 3 Comments

I decided to take Paula's advice and step on the scale this morning.  Even though I had been off track all week.  Yesterday in particular in a big way.  Turns out the scale stayed the same which is all I was hoping for. 


Plan for today is to focus on all things whole and healthy to start the week and month off on the right foot.


Heading to the gym alone today. 

Husband wasn't interested which usually would have kept me at home as well.

Not today…

HaHa.  If you're a football fan you would get a laugh out of that one.  (GO PATS)  If you're not, google deflate-gate. 


In all seriousness I feel deflated.  It started last Friday and it lasted all last week up to and including take out last night at 9pm.  I think it is from seeing some quick and easy results the first two weeks I was on track combined with some emotional eating of a difficult week at work and home.  Not a recipe for success in my…


Date Night!!!

Posted on January 30, 2015 at 7:10am 1 Comment

The husband surprised me with a mid week date night last night. It was exactly what I needed since I have been a bit down about the whole job situation lately. He gets out of work about a half hour before me so he met me at my work, took me to see The Wedding Ringer and then out to dinner. That is totally unlike us to go out spontaneously in the middle of the week like that! It was fun.

I can't say I am loving how I ate last night but as long as I break even at my weigh in tomorrow I… Continue

Emotional Eating

Posted on January 29, 2015 at 7:00am 3 Comments

This always happens when I start to lose weight.  The first few weeks I have big losses and it makes me nervous that it is too good to be true.  So I eat.  A lot.  Since I have now lost 25 pounds so quickly I have noticed that I am weighing and measuring out my food less often, and willing to go out to eat more often, and allowing the sweets to sneak back in.  Curse you Cadbury Mini Eggs!

Yesterday was a tough day at work.  I learned two different complex procedures and was feeling a…

You can do this! :) I haven't made much friends on here yet, but even with the eleven I have they help me out. Sometimes I just need someone in my corner pushing me when I need it....and picking me up when I fall. I don't have many friends that are supportive in my weight loss. It's refreshing to get on here and blog(vent) about my feelings. I need the support from others and that pat on my back once in awhile feels great. We will get through this journey I know it.

Hi, thanks Lynn. I'm just sitting down this weekend to get my thoughts sorted out. And to find my way around this site.

I am great! I just re-joined Weight Watchers and am really inspired by the new program.  It's REALLY appropriate for the way I like to eat :)

I feel the same as you Lynn, I can not wait to hear about your journey as well, keep your head up and let me know if I can support you in anyway!!!

Hi Lynn, I started on the old program on wednesday. So far so good. I gained back 25 out of 40 pounds and I am mad at myself. But, it's a new day so i'm going forward with a positive attitude. I've already planned out todays meals. I'm looking forward to the support on this blog. Times are tough so i'd rather not spend the money every week, but I do need the extra support.

Hi Lynn. Our stories are very similar! I agree with you about the new plan. I got all the new materials but just couldn't get into it eeither. I'm not sure what my plan is either right now. We can do this though!

Hi Lynn! Thanks for the welcome!
