Smooth Sailing

When I think of delicious summertime treats, milkshakes are right up there at the top of my list.  As all of us on weight loss journeys know, a milkshake has the power to completely derail your efforts in the few short moments it takes to enjoy it. Fast food chocolate milkshakes range anywhere between 12 […]

The Weigh to Success

What is more motivating than seeing results?  I can’t think of anything that inspires me more than seeing some rewards for all of my efforts.  Like most other people in our society, I prefer instant gratification, but I am really working on becoming a more patient person.  My weight loss journey has been a great […]

Feel Good Friday

Today was a “feel good” kind of day, for a lot of reasons.  I guess the main reason was it is Friday, and I always seem to feel better on Fridays.  It was also an absolutely perfect weather day here in Atlanta; sunny with a high of 68 degrees and a nice breeze.  It’s also […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse…For Breakfast

I bet you never thought you would be reading an article about peanut butter chocolate mousse for breakfast on this blog.  Honestly, I never thought I would be writing such an article let alone actually eating such a thing for breakfast, but here I am.  In my quest to become wheat free and remove processed […]

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 […]

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 […]

Out of My Comfort Zone

I know I have been talking about needing to change-up my workout routine, and I have been making small strides in that direction.  Last night, I stepped a little further out of my comfort zone and attended a Zumba class.  I have done Zumba before but it has been about two years so I am […]

Remember To Love Yourself

As we enter the month of February we are surrounded by reminders of Valentine’s Day and thoughts of love at every turn.  While most of us consider it important to love others and to have someone special in our lives to love us, we often forget how important it is to love ourselves.  I know […]

And The Verdict Is…

Well, as you all know I just completed my week of the Weight Watchers Simple Start plan and I have been anxious about weigh in all week.  I need to start off by saying that all of the meals were delicious and I experienced a variety of foods this past week that I have considered […]

Keeping My Word

Well, it’s Tuesday and so far, so good.  I am keeping the promise I made to myself on Friday to not only switch up my eating plan but my exercise plan as well.  I have to admit that shaking up my exercise routine is just as scary to me as changing the foods I eat.  Why?  […]
