We all want to feel and look our best, but it’s not always easy when temptation is lurking around every corner. Emotional eating is real and it’s difficult to break the patterns. While eating a balanced diet and exercising helps reduce blood pressure and weight, so can meditation....more

Lose It! #MyDayMyWay: In the Beginning I was 278 Pounds…

I had my 6 month check up on Monday, July 27 and I weighed in at a whopping 278 pounds. This is the largest I’ve ever been and I’m not going to stand for it anymore. At the end of this check up, I learned, not only do I still have high blood pressure and high cholesterol, but I also have type 2 diabetes. I’ve been teetering on the edge for quite some time but I never thought I’d fall. Well, it looks like I was wrong....more

Sometimes You Don't Know What to Feel After You Lose Weight

Why am I going from elated about my progress and proud of myself to looking in the mirror and knowing I'll never meet those goals I set for myself? Why are there days when I look at my boyfriend and think I must look really good to him, and other days when I wonder if he is only with me because meeting people is hard? Why do I let the words of my ex-husband, "Fat. Ugly. Disgusting" crawl across the face of my mirror when I am getting dressed in the morning? Aren't change and meeting goals supposed to be fun? I'm in the process of having great days and horrible days. I'm stuck in an emotional purgatory of weight loss. ...more

Keep me Accountable!

Hi All! I am currently on a mission to lose weight... the right way! I have always been slim, a skinny child, who developed into an athletic teen, who then lost the muscle and shrunk down to a skinny 20 something in college when I was too busy working and studying to work out. ...more

Friday Weigh-in: 30.3 Pounds Down!

230.2 pounds for today’s weigh-in! I jogged (or rather, walked briskly) right past that 30 pound mark – woohoo! That’s 2.6 pounds lost in the 3 days I’ve been back on induction-level carbs and SO CLOSE to the 220s! But the bigger milestone with 230.2? My lowest weight in 8 or 9 YEARS was 230.8, back in 2012. I haven’t weighed this low since 2007 or 2008. That’s when I put on 50 something pounds from the undertreated Hashimoto’s… Except for that low in 2012, I’ve mostly been stuck in the 250s since 2009....more

Friday Weigh-in: 29.5 Pounds Down

A new low on the scale again today: 231 pounds! I’m so close to the 30 pound mark, and so close to the 220s! My lowest since early 2009 was 230.8, so I’ll cross that major benchmark very soon. I’ve tried to get healthy and lose weight dozens of times over the years. Never have I lost this much though. And never have I stuck to something this longbefore. My most concerted efforts in the past have netted maybe 20-25 pounds tops....more
