I'm not talking about fitting in with the crowd...I'm talking about fitting into airplane seats! Took my daughter down to Disney last week. We took a flight down to Orlando, and then 2 flights to Pensacola...and each flight, the seats seemed t... Read more

Breaking through a plateau - FINALLY!

Wednesday, September 16, 2015      4 comments

For the past several weeks, I've hovered at the 30lb mark. The scale has fluctuated up and down, but never below 30lbs...UNTIL TODAY!! Finally! It took a little more consciousness on my part to break through. I'd gotten a little off track wi... Read more

The new me!

Wow, it's amazing the difference a few months can make. I'm just kind of rock'n and roll'n. Seems that I've kicked my emotional eating habits. I wont' say I am 100% over it, but I definitely have more control. I'm officially down 25lbs! My... Read more

Pushing myself

Wednesday, May 20, 2015      1 comments

I've reached this point with my fitness where I really enjoy pushing myself a little harder each time. On Saturday night, it was pushing my yoga poses a little further. Today, it was speeding up the treadmill and sticking with it to the end. ... Read more

A new lifestyle

Monday, May 18, 2015      1 comments

We had the typical game, Girl Scouts, cleaning and shopping. As I tried to wrangle the kids into bed last night, I realized I never had time to get any fitness in, and it was bothering me. Now, I did run around with the kids,... Read more

I'm down 13lbs today! I can't believe it! One of these days I'll start taking my other measurements because I know my body is changing more than the scale is showing. Clothes are fitting better, and my belly just doesn't seem quite so bumpy. ... Read more

It's being noticed!

Wednesday, April 22, 2015      5 comments

The scale and I have a love/hate relationship. Ok, mostly hate. I get on the scale and it's up or the same. So on days when I don't see the scale moving, it's really gratifying to hear..."Wow, you look great! How much have you lost?". ... Read more

Tuesday, November 04, 2014      0 comments

It's November 4, 2014, and I'm forcing myself to face the music. I gave up. I quit. I have used lots of excuses to avoid dealing with my weight. Now, here I am, weighing 241lbs and feeling terrible. Not just emotionally terrible, but physi... Read more

There are many reasons why today is a good day. For one, it's my Husband's birthday. Yay! I have to brag on him for a minute because I think he's AWESOME. He's kind, loving, a great dad, and takes really good care of us all. He's my ... Read more
