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 […]

Back to Basics Works

I think it’s safe to say that the world we live in today is anything but “basic.”  Modern technology allows us to have voluminous amounts of information literally at our fingertips twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty-five days a year.  While I think it’s wonderful that we have all […]

Making Myself Proud

When you are making choices throughout your day, do you ever think in terms of making choices that you can be proud of?  I think this a concept we really try to reinforce in our children but as adults, I’m not so sure that we are always thinking in terms of making decisions we can […]

Declaring Success

As you know, Thursdays mark the last day of my week as my weeks run Friday through Thursday based on my weigh-in being on Friday.  I realize that I am still about eighteen hours from stepping on the Weight Watchers scale, but I am already declaring this week a victory! Over the course of my […]

Refreshing Friday

I’m always amazed at how quickly Fridays roll around.  Weeks seemed so long when I was a kid and now it seems I blink my eyes and another one has passed.  I love Fridays for lots of reasons, but weigh in and my Weight Watchers meeting is big ones.  I’m always ready for a good […]

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 […]

If Hunger Is Not the Question

Do you ever find yourself trying to solve a problem, besides hunger, with food?  I certainly struggled with emotional eating in the past and honestly, I still battle the problem today.  Because I am “aware” now, I am able to control the emotional eating whereas I seemingly had no control in the past but make […]

Confessions Of A Closet Eater

There are so many different facets to having a weight problem and unless you’ve been there, some of them may be difficult to understand.  One that was a tremendous struggle for me was closet eating. As I have said before, I self-medicated with food to deal with sadness and unhappiness.  That did not always mean […]
