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 […]

Moving In the Right Direction

Experience has taught me that it’s best to not go into my Weight Watchers meetings with specific expectations.  I always go in feeling confident and that doesn’t change whether I am up or down, but I don’t go in feeling dead set that I am going to be down that week because then I feel […]

It Was Definitely Worth It

What a busy week this has been!  I can’t believe this is only my second post this week.  Time flies! It was good that I had so much to do this week as it made cutting the grapes out of my diet a little bit easier as I had other things to focus my attention […]

Progress Report

I hope everyone is having a successful start to their week.  I feel good about mine so far but I thought now might be a good time to give you progress report on a few things. I am finishing my third full day with no grapes and I have to admit, I am struggling!  I’m […]

Move It To Lose It

Even if it’s not something you enjoy doing, I think it goes without saying that we all know there are overwhelming benefits to exercise.  In addition to aiding in our weight loss efforts, there are a whole host of other benefits including decreasing our risk of certain diseases, elevating our mood, and improving our overall […]

It’s A New Week

It’s Friday and I am ready to embark on another week.  I am feeling very successful and very motivated.  As I reflect on this past week, I see many good things I did that will help me to reach my goal.  As promised, I started my journal, though I have to be honest and say […]

Successful Weekend

It’s a beautiful Monday morning here in Atlanta and I am feeling great about my week so far.  As you know, I consider Fridays the “official” start of my week, so I am already three days in, and so far, it feels like a successful one. I stayed on plan all weekend, which I normally […]

Maintaining Your Motivation

Does anyone else ever reach that point where they feel like they are spinning their wheels on their weight loss journey but not really getting anywhere?  I think if you stick with it long enough, that feeling is inevitable.  I am at that point and I have really spent the last few weeks looking for […]

Weathering the Storm

Well, here we are in Atlanta, two weeks after our last snow storm, and we are awaiting an ice storm of “historic” proportions.  I guess our saving grace this time is that we have had plenty of warnings and time to prepare.  By now, most of us are safe and secure wherever we plan to […]

Seize Any Opportunity

As many of you may know, we have been “Snowed Out” today in Atlanta.  I am thankful to say that I was not one of the unfortunate people who spent the night stranded at a hotel or worse yet, in the car on the interstate.  I spent a total of four hours in the car […]
