About Me:
Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again while expecting a different result. That pretty much sums up my life. I have been at this weight loss thing for a very long time and I have pretty much tried it all. I have had great success losing weight several times, but I never stick to it long enough to reach goal or maintain my weight loss. I have gotten very good at outsmarting the scale. I know how much I can eat and how much I have to exercise to keep the number the same at the end of the week. Truth is, that is such a big head game and I just don't have the bearings to keep it up any more. At least for right now. So I am taking a break from worrying about it. I am still going to try to make the best choices possible one choice at a time. But for now my story is to be continued....

See you in the sequel.

We all know that insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.  For the past year I have tried over and over again to get back on the happy and healthy train by blogging, tracking, working out.  I just haven't been able to do it.  In fact, it really stresses me out.  So I'm taking a break.  From here.  For now.  Any one who wants to stay in touch outside of BTL let me know.


LindaB, you know how to reach me. 


Play To My Strengths

It's been a year since I've worked.  Financially I have to but due to the complicated dynamic of our family it works out better for everyone if I don't.  I am thinking if I can find something when the kids go back to school that would be about as perfect timing as possible so I have started looking to see what's out there and researching the really promising leads.  I have also been thinking about my resume and interviewing.  Ugh.  Those are the worst parts of looking for a job!  I am pretty…


Freedom From

Posted on July 5, 2014 at 11:20am 2 Comments

I have been having some pretty deep thoughts regarding life, love, and the pursuit of happiness since the death of my dear friend.  I often find myself thinking through the past year and all that I've been through and wondering what would I have done differently if I knew then what I know now.  I'm not going to lie.  I would change everything.  That takes a lot of honesty to put in writing.  I know I can't change the past and that my only hope now is to focus on making the future the…

I recently joined a gym that had day care and I got a free one hour consultation with their trainers with the membership.  Clearly the intention is to get you to buy their services as well, but they also do an overall health assessment and I was curious about that.  No surprises.  I'm overweight.  I need to eat less and move more.  SIGH.  Why do I always think I am going to get some surprise miracle answer?  There is no other way to go about it.  Diet and exercise.  No matter how you cut…

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!

Lynn, thanks for the welcome! I'm a perfectionist's a horrible disease, isn't it?? If I could only just give myself a break sometimes, sigh... I'm trying to figure out this BlogToLose thing; hopefully I can get more info up in the coming days...
