A Week of Ups and Downs

Last week I had a rough go when it came to working out as my shifts at work were not the norm and thus I wasn’t able to attend boot camp the way I wanted to. This week was much better for that, I have been 4 times so far, which is great! I also … Continue reading


I knew this day was coming…the day when I would need to measure everything that goes into my mouth. I started it slowly, when I moved to Houston, by measuring the amount of chicken, beef and fish I was eating. I will admit that when it came to snacking, I was lax. When it came … Continue reading


I have almost been at an epic weight for almost 8 weeks. My weight has not budged for the entire time to get me to this weight, the lowest I will have been since I was a teen. So I made a decision–I broke up with the scale. It’s not going to be for forever, I … Continue reading

Then the next day at work my boss said that it was getting noticeable that I was losing weight, that I was looking different. Then … Continue reading

Weight Gain = Sadness

It wasn’t a tremendous gain, but a gain none-the-less. It’s sad. It’s demoralizing. I am working very hard to lose weight and get in shape, so to see a gain is disheartening. I have just recently written about my struggles with food and I know that Easter weekend didn’t help matters (eating mini eggs) nor … Continue reading

Eating Out Tricks

The latest Weight Watchers meeting discussed tricks when you eat out. This was a great topic considering that the week before I ate out three times and ordered from the menu without really thinking too much. I made sure I was ordering chicken and somewhat healthy food but I still ate the bread when it … Continue reading
