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 ( and I immediately became […]


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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Attitude: Mind Power

When we are in pursuit of a specific goal, it is very easy to get so focused on the end result we are striving for that we lose sight of all of the other great things going on in our lives. I had a conversation with someone over the weekend that has exactly this mind-set […]

Take Me Out to The Ballgame

Tuesday night was a perfect reminder of the rewards I get to enjoy after all of my weight loss efforts.  If you have never had a weight problem, there are a lot of simple, day-to-day activities that you take for granted.  One that I had never thought twice about until I gained all of the […]

Success Indeed

I blinked my eyes and Friday is here again.  My goodness the weeks go by so quickly!  It rained all night last night (literally) and started out misty and gloomy this morning but turned into a beautiful afternoon; the kind that lets you know that spring is right around the corner. I headed off to […]

I Love Surprises

It’s Friday AND its Valentine’s Day, so I want to wish you all a very Happy Valentine’s Day and I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! As you all know, I had a setback last week (as in…a gain), but I vowed I was setup for a comeback and indeed, I was.  I am […]

Customize Your Weight Loss Plan

I know in our culture it is very easy and often encouraged to follow the pack; do what everyone else is doing.  The older I have gotten, the more I realize how ridiculous this thinking is.  My personal opinion is that we all need to strive to be the unique individuals God created us to […]
