Weight Loss: Day 18

Day 18: And there it is again… That dreaded 175.5. Why can’t I seem to shake it? What else can I do to start losing weight again? I’m eating healthy, I’m exercising. Is it that I’m eating too much, eating too little? Should I cut out more sugars, more fats, more carbs? What should I […]

Weight Loss: Day 17

Day 17: Right back on it So yesterday I decided that I wanted to enjoy my day with friends, and not pay attention to how many calories I ate. Today- I’m back on my diet. Just because I didn’t want to count calories, doesn’t meant that I want to completely sabotage my whole diet plan. […]

Weight Loss: Day 16

Day 16: I’m not giving up I had a fairly easy day today. Nothing too out of the ordinary. There was a slower day at work. I didn’t have anything that was too difficult to handle, and we got off an hour earlier than normal. I’d say today was a pretty regular day. I also […]

Weight Loss: Day 15

Day 15: These ups and downs are killing me This whole weight loss journey- only about two weeks worth so far- has almost felt like torture!

Weight Loss: Day 12

Day 12: So much pain! So after that 7 mile walk yesterday, and not allowing my muscles to take a break yet, I decided that I needed to take a complete day off from exercise. After all, your body needs time to rest. The rest you take between workouts is what helps to repair your […]

Weight Loss: Day 11

Day 11: Holy Cow! Have you ever walked 7 miles for exercise? It sounds like a lot of miles, a lot of time, a lot of effort. Anyone out there ever tried it? I just finished a 6.5 mile walk. My feet are KILLING me! I can hardly move my legs from the exercise I […]

Weight Loss: Day 10

Day 10: Is this over yet? I woke up this morning feeling a little tired. I had told myself last night that I needed to get more sleep and so I got more sleep. Either I had gotten too much sleep, or I had woken up too many times during the middle of the night that […]

Weight Loss: Day 9

Day 9: Learning to Accept it I had a really good day today. I was happy. I was smiling. I solved problems at work. I made investments in myself. And I learned to accept things the way they are. When I weighed myself this morning, I wasn’t expecting any changes on the scale. I did […]
