Decide. Commit. Succeed.

Being that I recently celebrated the five-year anniversary of embarking on my health and wellness journey, the past few weeks have been a time for some reflection.  In some ways, five years seems like such a long time, but when I think of all that I have accomplished in that time period, I feel extremely […]

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 […]

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 […]

If At First You Don’t Succeed…

I thought since it’s the first day of a new month, it would be a good time to talk about goals again.  I wanted to address the fact that I did not meet my goal for June and share with you what my goal for July is.  The most important thing is to be honest […]

So Close I Can Taste It

I feel like this week I have really experienced the power of writing my goals down.  It’s one thing to say you want to accomplish something, but it seems to take on a whole new meaning and direction once you put it into writing.  There is something about putting the ink to the paper that […]

Are You Wishing or Planning?

I know it might seem like a silly question, but it really is a valid one.  Are you wishing to lose weight this month, or are you planning to lose weight this month?  It is incredible how much power our mind and our thoughts have over us and until you realize the magnitude of that […]

Something I Never Knew I Wanted

I have found in my weight loss journey that setting goals for myself is a sure-fire way to keep myself motivated.  The funny thing I am finding is that the types of goals I am setting are changing over time and as more of the weight comes off.  Sometimes I find myself thinking about goals […]

Renew Your Weight Loss Motivation

You would think that simply losing the weight would be motivation enough to keep driving us on our journeys but unfortunately, I think we all get to the point where we need some renewed motivation.  I have to say that after more than 2 ½ years on my own journey, sometimes just the thought of […]

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 […]

Wanna Bet?

Who among us does not need some extra motivation from time to time?  I know I certainly do.  And what better motivator than money to get us on track and doing what we know we should be doing?  Since I seem to be stuck at the same point (with only some minor fluctuations here and […]
