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 […]

The Creep

Is everyone else as busy as I have been lately? I’m sure you are. The weeks are ticking by so quickly I can hardly keep up. We are less than a week from Christmas and less than two weeks from the end of the year! I only realized today just how long it has been […]

Playing Catch Up

I cannot believe I have allowed so much time to go by without doing a post.  If I have any readers left out there, I apologize.  Everything is going well and I am enjoying my new job very much but I am still working on my time management as far as fitting in the job, […]

100

When I was typing the title of this post, I could not believe that I was actually typing “100th.”  It doesn’t seem possible that I have written 100 posts for my blog.  I certainly enjoy sharing my story although time constraints have kept me from updating as regularly as I would like to lately.  When […]

Two for One

Well, I suppose you were all wondering if I dropped off the face of the earth.  I have to admit, I’ve been wondering the same thing.  Things have been very hectic, in a good way, getting started with my new job and I have not been doing a good job of juggling my time.  So […]

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 […]

Happy Anniversary

It is hard for me to believe, but this week marks the three-year anniversary of starting my weight loss journey.  In some ways it feels like it has only been a few months and in other ways it seems like a lifetime ago.  When I look at all that has happened in my life in […]

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 […]

Happy Dance

What a difference a week makes!  This is why I say “Quitting Is Never an Option!”  You are going to have a bad week here and there throughout your weight loss journey but if you let one bad week ruin all of your efforts, you will never know what might have been.  I was feeling […]

Honesty IS the Best Policy

I know I preached about being honest with yourself in my last post but I wanted to let you know that I am living my own advice and it really is working.  I cannot say for sure what the scale will say tomorrow but regardless of the number, I will be able to look at […]
