This past weekend I attended a Christmas party. I had bought a dress for the event. It was something I had not wanted to wear a dress in a very long time. I took a chance wearing the dress. I was not sure I could pull it off. I doubted... Continue reading

I used to watch the world go by me. My friends will tell you that I am an energetic, enthusiastic, funny, and happy person. I came across as confident and self assured. And it was partly true. I took chances but never physical ones. I let the world go by... Continue reading

I wrote a while back about what size means to me and some of the women I know that are also going through this journey. We talked about our size not the size of clothing. This topic has been on my mind as I searched for clothes this past weekend.... Continue reading

For the first time in this weight loss journey I felt a bit of defeat this weekend. I should probably not feel this way since I have lost over 60 pounds so far on this journey. I should feel good about things all the time. But sometimes I don't feel... Continue reading

Thanksgiving. The Eating Holiday. I really like this holiday because it means that we get to spend time with friends and family most years and it is an opportunity to eat till we want to puke. Well not this year folks. At my Weight Watchers meeting a couple of weeks... Continue reading

I wanted to make sure that I captured all the stages of this journey. I have been focusing on the shots of my face and have not done a full body comparison in a while. I decided to take some photos today and get the camparison created and then to... Continue reading

Before I had a little oops cutting the vegetables that I would eat in my salad for lunch this coming week, I noticed how much care I had taken in preparing them. Before this journey, I rarely thought about taking the time to care for the food that I eat.... Continue reading

This week my weigh in was a lot better then I expected. I had been sick 4 days last week so I was not sure how the weigh in would be affected by this. I stayed on track and kept to my program tracking all my food every day. I... Continue reading

For a few months now I have been trying to pin point the moment that everything changed. The moment that broke me and I decided that I needed to change my life. My fiance' Tim says that our trip to Arkansas over Memorial Day weekend was the turning point. Something... Continue reading

This past weekend I flew to Houston, Texas to watch my fiance give a presentation at a Toastmasters conference. I was excited to fly. I knew that I would not need the seat belt extender because I did not need one back in September. I was thrilled about that. I... Continue reading

I was asked the other day if I hated the way I looked or who I was before I lost some of my weight. The answer is no. I am not ashamed of who I was or what I have done in the past. I was once described as engagingly... Continue reading
