No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Introduction: I have finally found my weight loss momentum again! *Cue the choir- Hallelujah*
I used Atkins in the past, and my family just about disowned my ass. I used WW Momentum, and lost roughly 35 pounds. I was on cloud nine, and then WW switched the program on me. I didn't attempt trying to…Continue

I had a rough week last week. Rough as in, I went way over my WW points and was even in the "red zone" - meaning I ate much more than my points allowed for the week, including all weeklies and activity points. I started my week off on the wrong foot and clearly paid for it towards the end. However, once you are so far gone it's not like you cannot eat for the rest of the week. That is unreasonable. So rather than beat myself up over it, I just tried to better my choices towards…Continue

Well, it's been 3 days since "the breakup", I've lost 10 lbs...by basically not being able to eat. I've been making sure to get in some peanut butter for energy. My desire is to allow this time to transfer into an overall healthier lifestyle. I've cut out sweets completely and carbs are way down. I'm hoping to lose quite a bit by June. I'll update weekly about my progress and the changes I have made. I'm trying to stay positive, but still struggling with the hurt...trying to allow it…Continue

I'm not sure if any of you out there are Cougar Town fans. I just recently started watching and I can't get enough of it. Anyway, one of the catch phrases they use in that show is "Change Approved". It always makes me laugh when they say it, but I found myself saying it out loud earlier this week.
I had my much anticipated follow up appointment with the specialist this week. It went as well as possible. My blood sugars are back down in normal range but they are still…Continue
Breakfast: eggs, banana and peanut butter, coffee, any fruits, leftovers,
I WANT PALEO Panckaes this week***
Lunch/dinner: sweet potatoes, mediteranean "pizza," cauliflower rice, shrimp, spaghetti squash spaghetti!, avocado, almond chicken fingers,!
I need to get creative in the kitchen so I can make good food that is Paelo and not just eat carrot sticks, becuase that's gross.
I'm giving up sweets for lent.. we'll see how that goes. I want to see how "addicted" I really am to sugar.
This past week I ate paleo, with a focus on fruits and veggies. Yesterday I snacked a bit on peanut butter with saltine crackers.. not the worst thing in the world but still processed junk food. Today I ate a lot of tostitos. Those are paleo, though, right? haha. I'm keeping track on my phone of how well I'm doing, like checking off the days I eat paleo and go for a run, which…Continue
So at my last weigh in I was surprised to see a loss, right? Well, the gain was just a few days late. It was on the scale in full force 194 lbs... ugh ... up 2.8. No use dwelling on it. There's a ton of factors and you will always just have to keep pressing on.
Be it that you ate bad OFTEN that week, ran…
I'm sure you are probably tired of hearing about my back problems. I am tired of dealing with them. It has pretty much consumed my days since Wednesday. I've been to the chiropractor for the past 3 days, as well as applying ice, stretching, and walking. My poor husband has had to stay home from work because I can't lift the boy. I am still in quite a bit of pain, but I at least can see that it is possible that I will feel normal again sometime soon. I go back for my next appointment on…Continue
Just cause you can get it on does not mean that it fits! A hard lesson for me to learn. But today I am tired of pretending something fits whilst looking in the mirror and being disappointed. When its so tight that it forces the fat to spill over and makes your stomach look larger than it is .... it does not fit. When you wear it and you feel worse about yourself even though its a smaller size it does not fit. If you are not comfortable and the item leaves abusive marks on you ... it…Continue
Unfortunately, I woke up this morning with my back feeling worse. Much worse. I had assured my husband that I would be fine to take care of our son today and he could go to work, but after getting out of bed I quickly realized that wasn't going to happen. In fact, it was quite scary when I got him out of his crib and felt like I was going to pass out while changing his diaper. Super hot flash, ears ringing, vision black. I was so scared because all I could think about was what would happen…Continue
I compiled a list of why I need to reduce my size and want I want to get from it. (You can check it out on my blog - http://myfuturepicture.wordpress.com/).
So you may wonder why I would do that.
A nutrionist friend told me to make a pro and con list since it will serve as a reminder when I want to start giving up. (which I have Olympic colours in since I can’t tell you how many eating plans and diets I have started to…Continue

I have been pushing myself off to the back burner since, well, the fall, and I have decided (along with the help of my therapist) that I need to do more things for myself, that give me joy. One thing I get a lot of joy from is taking care of myself- and exercising and eating well impact my self image in a big way. I have been following another mom on instagram who joined WW online in early January and has lost 20lbs. Well this is a huge motivator for me and when I found out she was using WW…Continue
Injuries are never fun. Awhile back I hurt my back while working out. Actually, turns out I didn't really hurt it so much, as I just had super tight hamstrings and needed a few adjustments at the chiropractor. Since that time I have been careful to stretch well and anytime my back starts to hurt, I do extra stretches and use the foam roller. I haven't had any major pain since then--until yesterday. My back was a little tight from some intense workouts last week, but not too bad. I rolled and…Continue
