You Can't Teach an Old Dog New Tricks, But You Can Buy Her New Snow Pants

We broke with tradition this holiday season and spent the week in Utah with family and friends.  It was a little unsettling leaving a week earlier than I had planned.  I didn't get neighbor gifts delivered, or presents wrapped.  We didn't have Christmas Eve clam chowder or decorate gingerbread houses.  It was all out of whack.    ...more

Getting over the recovery hump

Most of the other employees are in the break room right now enjoying cake, cookies and punch.  Not me.  I’m at my desk eating edamame because I can’t handle life.  They are laughing and having a good time.  I can’t have a good time when I see a cake that I’d like to wolf down in one huge bite.  But I wouldn’t want to do it there.  Not where any...more

I will scream if women do not stop call each other FAT!!!!

This weekend I was at the mall shopping with a "friend" and all she could talk about was how fat the women in the mall were. She just lost 25 pounds and I remember when she would get angry when people would comment on her weight. Personally, I did too.  Weight is just one of those things that just does never mattered to me. She ruined my entire afternoon (no to mention my Haagen Daz Carmel malt that I was enjoying, I threw it away) and I just walked away and I ACTUALLY CAUGHT THE BUS HOME, because I was dumb enough to let her drive....more

I can hear the Food calling my Name!

Every Thursday morning, faithfully, for weeks now I've gone to weight watchers. Its part of my life now and I enjoy it. I like being accountable, learning about eating healthy at the meetings, and losing weight. I watch what I eat, I write down everything, I calculate. It's the way my life has to be in order to be healthy, ITS NOT A DIET. ...more

It does feel good to have a plan and understand healthy eating, but WW can consume you and I ...more

Get Skinny by Brown-Bagging It!

You can find this post and others like it at http://liveitouteveryday.blogspot.com. My coworkers drive me insane.  Everyone complains about their holiday weight gain; yet, everyday at lunch, everyone is asking what restaurant we want to go to.  Every day it is “Who else wants Mexican?” or “Does anyone want Jimmy John’s?” or “Where are you going for lunch?”  I swear I’m just going to start packing them all a lunch every day because I’m tired of it! It’s tough being that one person brown-bagging it....more

My husband usually takes leftovers in his lunch and people frequently comment on how good they ...more

Thoughts on Being A "Pretty Fat Girl"

Now, this isn’t the first time that this has happened to me. The “but you’ve got such a pretty face” write-off. As if my face discounts the size of my body, or my life-long struggle with weight. As if we are existing in some sort of hierarchy of fatness, where pretty faces sit at the top and everyone else has more of a right to hate their bodies than, let's say, I do. ...more
sooooooo true.  There feels like there is a perceived beauty hierarchy on many levels. I lost a ...more
