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.  […]

Unspeakable Joy

I have to admit that while the name of the blog is “Quitting Is Never An Option,” there are days when the battle seems like it’s just too much and I wonder if I can really muster the strength the keep pushing.  Those thoughts are fleeting and I don’t allow them to occupy more than […]

What’s Your Plan?

It’s hard for me to believe that we are within mere weeks of yet another holiday season.  While I love this time of year and Thanksgiving and Christmas very much it feels like the older I get, the quicker this time of year keeps rolling around! Everyone’s situation is different.  For some of us, the […]

Playing Catch Up

I cannot believe I have allowed so much time to go by without doing a post.  If I have any readers left out there, I apologize.  Everything is going well and I am enjoying my new job very much but I am still working on my time management as far as fitting in the job, […]

100

When I was typing the title of this post, I could not believe that I was actually typing “100th.”  It doesn’t seem possible that I have written 100 posts for my blog.  I certainly enjoy sharing my story although time constraints have kept me from updating as regularly as I would like to lately.  When […]

Two for One

Well, I suppose you were all wondering if I dropped off the face of the earth.  I have to admit, I’ve been wondering the same thing.  Things have been very hectic, in a good way, getting started with my new job and I have not been doing a good job of juggling my time.  So […]

Round and Round

I enjoy a good amusement park ride as much as the next person but I have to be honest and tell you I am not enjoying the merry-go-round I have been on for so long!  I guess in some ways it is more like a roller coaster ride but somehow the merry-go-round analogy seems more […]

Weigh Late

I cannot believe that I am almost an entire week late in reporting my weigh-in to you.  Time flies when you are busy and for the last six days, I have planned to get my post done and then life has happened and I haven’t gotten it done.  I’m here now though! You know what’s […]

Happy Anniversary

It is hard for me to believe, but this week marks the three-year anniversary of starting my weight loss journey.  In some ways it feels like it has only been a few months and in other ways it seems like a lifetime ago.  When I look at all that has happened in my life in […]

Ride the Wave

I hope everyone had a great week.  I am working on getting back to a more regular posting schedule and hopefully you will see that in the next few weeks.  I have had so much going on lately, but it has all been good.  Now things are starting to settle down a bit and I […]
