Oh Glorious Day

A.M. weigh in: 159.4
I’m back in the 150s baby!! And it feels sooooo good. Not as good as being back in the 140s, or when I one day hit goal weight (notice I said when, not if!) but still it’s an accomplishment and I’m embracing it.
Especially since last night’s weigh in at WW was disappointing. [...]

Happy Hump Day

I feel like I’m finally maybe just really finally getting back on track. The past two days have been a test. Between birthday cake on Monday (of which I did NOT partake. Yay Me! Huge pat on the back!) and a movie last night (NO CANDY at the movies, no snacks of any [...]

Just 30 days

A.M. weigh-in: 168.2
I am giving myself 30 days of rock hard commitment. I am almost at 170. I swore I’d never see the 150s again and here I am nearly 20 lbs higher than that. I feel like I’m just spinning out of control and I’ve got to set the breaks NOW! My mojo, I [...]

Today I feel blah. Maybe later tonite I’ll write more about it in depth. The sum of [...]

Mama Done Lost Her Mojo
