Lazy Weight Gain – Weekly Weigh In

Weekly Weigh In April 6, 2015

I ate fast food last week…a lot!  I can’t really tell you why except I was lazy. I didn’t walk last week…at all.  I can’t really tell you why except I was lazy. I didn’t track last week…maybe a little.  I can’t really tell you why except I was lazy. Moral of the story…you be […]

A Loss is a Loss, No Matter How Small – Weekly Weigh In

Weekly Weigh In March 23, 2015

Ya’ll…it just keeps happening.  I keep losing.  And I keep being surprised some weeks.  I mean, I ate Sonic for goodness sakes!  How does that happen?!?  Oh yeah, I track!  That’s right.  I track and I try to eat within my calorie range on most days.  That is the big secret.  Amazing, isn’t it!? So, […]

In Case of Emergency – TRACK YOUR FOOD – Weekly Weigh In

My Fitness Pal Under Calorie Goal

I was headed into emergency mode.  My emergency was not being able to fit into any of my summer clothes…when I say ANY, I mean ANY!  Even my workout clothes were tight.  If that doesn’t yell EMERGENCY, I don’t know what does! My mom, sensing my emergency state of living, challenged me to a Tracking […]

One “NO” at a Time

Keep Calm and Just Say No

I told you guys last week that I decided to do a 10 day tracking.  Well, here is the text that started it all: Notice the time…7:03 a.m.  Yes, we text early. Here is my response back to her: Sounds like a good plan right?  My mom and I both have severe sweet tooths that […]

If your Tracker Could Talk – Weekly Weigh In

Weight Watchers Weekly Weigh In September 23

This week, I NEEDED to go to my meeting.  I told you all about the frustrations I was having, I had a horrible day on Monday (lots of stress) and I literally NEEDED to go to my meeting.  I NEEDED to weigh in and I NEEDED to listen to Jacynta.  I NEEDED support from others […]

Day at a Time December

Happy Birthday Jason and Hampton!

I have decided I am going to take December a day at a time. It might even be necessary to take it a minute or an hour at a time. Weight loss is hard. It is so difficult that many people who try, fail. Then they try again and fail again. And for those people […]

Bite It Write It – Weekly Weigh In

Weight Watchers Lose for Good Shirt

I am so glad I went to my Weight Watchers meeting tonight.  I wonder if there are ever times when someone leaves a Weight Watchers meeting and wishes they had not gone?  I am sure there are some out there but no one walking out of my leader Jacynta’s meeting ever says that!  She rocks. […]

Measure It – Weekly Weigh In

Weight Watchers Food Scale

I have been a little lax lately with my weekly weigh ins.  Probably because it has been such a constant up, down, up, down, up, down. Who wants to hear about that?  Well…I realized maybe YOU do.  Maybe you are experiencing the same thing and you need to hear that you are not alone.  Guess […]

Track and Succeed – Weekly Weigh In

Your body keeps an accurate journal regardless of what you write down

I had a good week last week.  Do you want to know why?!?  It’s a big secret…a big trick.  I don’t know if I should tell you all because it is so profound. I tracked. Yep, that’s it.  I tracked all week long. I tracked, I stayed on plan, and I lost. I didn’t just […]

Focus on the Positive

This morning, when I stepped on the scale for my Monday morning weigh in, I was mortified.  Not shocked, just mortified.  How can I be on this downward spiral.  I had pretty much already decided last night that I was going to use a No Weigh In pass tonight at Weight Watchers.  Lately there have […]
