Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

Roni's Blog (71)

Long Time No Blog (toLose)

I need to start this post with an apology. I literally fell off the planet and I'm sorry. I'm not making any excuses for myself, I've simply spread myself too thin. 

Anyway, I'm back and I'm going to continue with some of the plans we made earlier this year to make the community more supportive. So a few things.. 

  1. I'm hearing the spam issue is on the rise again. I'm on and will be banning members left and right. Spam is not tolerated here. This…

Changes Underway!

Hello fellow BlogToLosers! I wanted to take a moment to let you know I have NOT forgotten about you! I can't believe how much BlogToLose has grow from all the support you give one another. THAT is why I started it. "We" get "us" and now there's a spot for us to fine one another. 


Anyway, life has been crazy with a new baby, but I'm getting into a groove and ready to make BlogToLose a priority again. I have so many ideas and just never buckled down to implement them. It's…

CHALLENGE: Night Time Snacking.

I'm revisiting this old challenge because I'm DESPERATE. I just can't stop snacking after the kids go to bed!

Some of us do it out of boredom some out of pure exhaustion. We mindlessly munch while watching evening TV or grab something from the fridge while heading to bed (I just did that last night.) I don't think all night time eating is bad and I don't think we need to make some ridiculous unachievable goal like.. "I'm never going to eat after 7PM again,…

A New Challenge: Let's Walk!

I'm not sure anyone has missed me but either way, I'm so sorry I've been MIA!


As you may know, I gave birth just a few weeks ago on St. Patrick's Day. I gained about 50lbs with the pregnancy and now have about 30 to shed. Of course I'll be using my blog to help me along the way and one of my goals is to start at least 1 challenge a month here on…

Challenge: Self-Exploration on the Blog

Ok, so I can't called this a "Weekly" Challenge as I'm completely failing at the weekly part but it's still a challenge and that's the important thing.

This week I want you to BLOG! That's why we are here after all, no? And I know some of you have been doing a fabulous job of it but as I say on the BlogToLose "Plan", weight loss blogging has to be about facing your feelings. My challenge this week is get you to…

Thanksgiving Challenge!

Holidays ARE challenging. Especially one that completely revolves around FOOD. It's unescapable.

You may have the attitude that it's one day and it's not going to "kill" you. I TOTALLY agree. I remember my first Thanksgiving on Weight Watchers and it hit me like a ton of bricks...

"One meal cannot make you fat. One meal will not cause you to gain all the weight back."

I kept repeating that to myself over and over again.…

BlogToLose Challenge: Find a Class

Hey guys! It's about time for a new challenge, don't you think?

This one is totally inspired by a step class I took this morning. Now I haven't taken step in over 2 years but it was one of the first classes I ever braved when I joined a gym 3 years ago. I was scared out of mind. All these thoughts started swimming though my head...…
