Following My Passion By Letting Go

  As I prepare to start the next incredible chapter in my journey, I have begun the process of “minimizing” my possessions.  I started studying the concept of minimalism six or eight months ago when my Dad told me about a TedX talk he had listened to by The Minimalists (www.theminimalists.com) and I immediately became […]

Relax

I am learning, after being on this journey of health and wellness for over four and half years that the line between diligence and obsession is extremely thin.  I have been extremely diligent in the pursuit of my goals and part of that diligence has included learning as much as I possibly could about health, […]

Three Signs You’re Ready to Start the Journey

The number one question I get is, “How did you lose the weight?”  I think a lot of people are hoping I will be the one to give them the “magic bullet” answer; the one where you don’t have to do any work, make any sacrifices, etc.…  The one where you just declare you want […]

The Definition of Insanity

This was the most appropriate quote I could think of to describe my weight loss efforts over the last several months.  We all know how long I have been stuck at the same point but the last few weeks put “the fear” into me as I was up more than 3 pounds each week.  My […]

Marching on Through

I’m not even sure how long it has been since I had time to sit down and write but I do know one thing; it’s been way too long!  I hope this post finds all of you doing well.  Spring is in the air here in Georgia and I couldn’t be happier!  I love the […]

The Truth Will Set You Free

It is certainly no secret that I am struggling with my weight loss efforts these days.  I don’t understand why I have hit this wall but I have and I am doing my best to work through it.  The simple solution is to not eat foods that you know you shouldn’t eat.  As those of […]

Still In the Game

So I’m sure that you were all beginning to wonder if I had decided that quitting was indeed an option.  I can assure you, I definitely have NOT!  I am struggling though and because of that, I have been feeling like I’m not really qualified to be doling out weight loss advice when I haven’t […]

Clean Slate

There is something refreshing about the start of a new year.  For me, it’s like a fresh beginning, a clean slate if you will.  It’s that point in the year where we have a very visible marker between past and future and it can be a great time for a fresh start.  However, it is […]

The Creep

Is everyone else as busy as I have been lately? I’m sure you are. The weeks are ticking by so quickly I can hardly keep up. We are less than a week from Christmas and less than two weeks from the end of the year! I only realized today just how long it has been […]

Balancing Act

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family and that you were all able to avoid disaster while being tempted by delicious comfort foods.  I was lucky in the sense that we ate out so there were no opportunities for second helpings and there are no tempting leftovers lurking in my refrigerator.  […]
