The battle inside my head.
It starts the minute I wake up... the conversations in my head. What day is it? Do I have to work? What appointments do I have? Then breakfast is really easy... I eat a few different options for breakfast, always reasonable. Then I’m busy. Until... Read more
Then and now
7 years ago today, I celebrated losing 50 pounds by going Kayaking. I’ll never forget that day... the weather was perfect, I felt happy and proud of myself, my husband was proud of me and we paddled around Monterey Bay then had champagne and wat... Read more
I want something!
Today was 8 days of eating right and tracking. I had a crummy day. I let stress get to me, I hated my lunch even though there’s nothing wrong with a tuna sandwich. I wanted fast food. A burger, pizza, fries, cookies, something! Some excuse to e... Read more
Why is it so hard?
Why do we fight it so hard??? It feels good when we track and succeed! It feels good when we complete a goal It feels good to get that next size down instead of the next size up! Why do we fight it so hard? Why is food such an addiction and why ... Read more

Hello junk food, my old friend
If you're all just joining me, this is my first official blog since I returned. I have tracked for the last three weeks, even when I wasn't stellar. I quit drinking diet soda in the morning too and have felt pretty good.
Monday morning my... Read more
Oh, And another thing!
Today, I went to a graduation party. I ate a handful of pub mix ( pretzels etc), had 2 bottles of water, then had a Taco Bell burrito with beans and steak, no cheese, on the way home. NO SODA!
I was really happy with myself.
Tomorrow i... Read more
I'm still not blogging I just wanted to tell you something
Ok I'm still not blogging because I said I wouldn't. 11 days of being "back on my program" that helped me lose 70 pounds (and being off it which helped me gain 60 back).
I remember when I started 5 years ago. I found spark people and it was... Read more

Stop start stop start.
