Weigh In 1

in Weight Loss

Since I came clean last week, I thought I would keep the transparency going.

This week I tracked my food (most of the time).  I drank less pop.  I chose to make food at home rather than pick up fast food or order in.

This week I took responsibility and took back control of my eating.  Yes, it’s for the umpteenth time.  That is far better than continuing to ignore it.  One of these times it’ll stick.  I’ll be mentally ready to tackle this in the long-term.  Maybe it’s this time.  Hopefully.  I’d rather keep trying that give up though.

Here are this week’s results:


It feels good to be back in control.

What is your best piece of advice for staying on track?



Thoughts and Things

by Stephanie November 19, 2014

I feel like I have a lot of random thoughts in my head and no attention span to write a focused post.  So this is just going to be me chatting about what’s been going on with me.  Pull up a couch, a blanket, and some hot cocoa because it’s cold here in the Midwest! […]

Coming Clean: A New Baseline

by Stephanie November 13, 2014

Part of my commitment to consistency is blogging a minimum of three days each week.  That means I have to come clean. I’ve been hiding.  I’ve been quiet, not blogging, not wanting to admit something.  And it’s not easy. I’m far from where I used to be. I’ve been bouncing around my heaviest weight for nearly […]

Here are just a few of them: I’m transitioning to a new job in my company, which basically means working two jobs for the next […]

Fear Less (Or It’s OK to be OK)

by Stephanie October 22, 2014

I’ve been thinking a lot these last few weeks about fear.  I put together vision boards and hung them in my bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen so I would have a visual reminder of my goals.  The board in my bedroom has this on it: I looked at this every day for while and it just […]

Catching Up: Fear, Family Time, & Feeling Sick

by Stephanie October 9, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve written (2 weeks) so I thought I’d do some catching up.  Did you miss me?  I missed you! The first week off from writing was time for me to do some thinking.  I’ve been struggling with my eating, my exercise routine, and my motivation.  Mostly I’ve been struggling with […]
