Weight-loss Wednesday – The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

This weight-loss thing has been a journey. Each and everyday is a new challenge and some I don’t even know how it all played out. It is definitely easier to grab a Big Mac or bag of chips then to make something healthy. The prep work and thought that goes into each and everyday can be daunting. This past week I have kind of said FX&% it! I was away and I was just tired of thinking about everything I put into my mouth. I tend to have some days like this and usually need a little  ...

I Looked In The Mirror And I Liked What I Saw

Yesterday I went out with some girlfriends to see a movie. It has been awhile where I have left the kids at home and took some me time. I figured I would take this opportunity to put on a little make up, a dress and let my hair down. It is funny because for the first time in a really long time I looked in the mirror and thought to myself, I like the person looking back at me. I have never “hated” myself or looked in the mirror and thought man your ugly….but I have looked  ...

Weight Watchers Wednesday – Weeks 10 – 13

Oh my goodness, it has been so busy around here that I realized I had not updated my blog about my weight loss journey! So much has been happening, lots of ups and downs and so much in between. I have learned that this journey is a lot easier when I am at work. Everything so much more controlled and I don’t have unlimited access to food. The last couple weeks have been a challenge as I have had MANY events, my sister and her family arrived and I am home with the boys all day. My  ...

Weight Watchers Wednesday – Weeks 7 through 9

OH MY GOODNESS! I just realized I have been doing updates about Weight Watchers on Facebook but haven’t wrote my post in awhile so I will kind of do a run down:) I am entering my 9th week with Weight Watchers and I must say it is still working for me! That makes me excited for many reasons as I am getting healthy and sticking with it. You see I have come to notice that this process is infectious. I have received so many comments and messages telling me how I am inspiring them with  ...

Weight Watchers Wednesday – Week Four

So this week I decided that I would allow myself Sushi. You see it would of been fine if I stopped after a couple but I really felt like I owed myself All-You-Can-Eat! That’s right this girl right here stuffed her face like I had not ate in weeks. Do you want to know a secret? I would totally freaking do it again. You see I took this new lifestyle on so I could feel better about myself, get healthy and be around a long time to enjoy my kids. I didn’t do it so I could not eat  ...

Weight Watchers Wednesday – Week Three

Week three? WHAT!?!?! I don’t even know where the time has gone. (read about week two on Weight Watchers here)  When I first started this journey I was excited to push forward and start eating better and making healthier choices for me. Some days I questioned what I was doing as this was a HUGE change for me. Actually looking at what I was eating, measuring it so I knew I was having a serving and then just eating that was hard. But time is flying by and the weight well has been coming  ...

Weight Watchers Wednesday – Week Two #WeightWatchers

Phew it has been two weeks (read about week one here)  and I must say some days I am in total control where other days I still feel like I am just getting through the day. Food is not my enemy I tell myself that everyday and I really don’t need all the junk food to survive….I repeat I do not need all that junk food to survive! This week my goal was to get outside and do stuff. Winter is hard for me as it is really cold and I lack the motivation. So easy to get into the habit of  ...

Weight Watchers Wednesday: Week One

So my first week on Weight Watchers went well. Each week I attend a meeting with others that helps motivate me and encourage success for the upcoming week.  At our meeting our discussion was about “Glamoments”. These are the moments that are not from the scale. For me one of those moments was joining Weight Watchers. Finally I decided I needed to do something for me and get as healthy as I can be. I owe it to my boys to be around for awhile, my husband and most importantly  ...

Weight Watchers Wednesday – The Beginning

So I guess by reading the title you get that I took the jump and joined Weight Watchers. Yes I know it is possible to do it on my own but at this point I cant, I need the support, I need the accountability, did I mention I need the support? I have struggled with my weight since high school. It is not that I was not active as I wrestled, played rugby and was on the ball diamond 3 – 4 days a week most weeks and heck I was running every night. My problem? Eating within my limits,  ...
