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 […]

Still In the Game

So I’m sure that you were all beginning to wonder if I had decided that quitting was indeed an option.  I can assure you, I definitely have NOT!  I am struggling though and because of that, I have been feeling like I’m not really qualified to be doling out weight loss advice when I haven’t […]

Round and Round

I enjoy a good amusement park ride as much as the next person but I have to be honest and tell you I am not enjoying the merry-go-round I have been on for so long!  I guess in some ways it is more like a roller coaster ride but somehow the merry-go-round analogy seems more […]

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 […]

Admitting You Have A Problem

They say the first step to solving a problem is admitting you have one, right?  In that case, since I have identified a REAL problem in the last three days, its best I admit it to all of you now and start taking the necessary measures to undo the damage.  “Hello.  My name is Kassie […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Frustrating Friday

It’s Friday and that means it’s my Weight Watchers meeting day and weekly weigh-in.  I always look forward to Fridays, even if I don’t think I’ve had a great week, because it’s my day for my accountability check and it’s my day to see so many friends at my meeting. I was holding out high […]

Pushing Past The Plateau

This week I am focused on trying to push past the plateau that I seem to have been at for the last year.  Given that I lost 150 lbs in sixteen months and in the last year I’ve only lost 12 lbs, you can imagine how frustrated I am. I am trying to take an […]
