Getting Comfortable in My Own Skin

For the past couple weeks and even more so this week I have found myself super self conscious about my extra skin. It’s so frustrating to know I am making gains at the gym, I know I am – I see it, but I have been so dragged down with negative thoughts about how IContinue reading “Getting Comfortable in My Own Skin”

Final Check Up Done!

Today was my final check up with my surgeon that did my tummy tuck. I have had mixed feelings about going this appointment because I still have weight to lose to get to my lowest weight again post surgery.  After my appointment, I felt so good again.  It’s always a good reminder for me ofContinue reading “Final Check Up Done!”

Identity Crisis – Who am I?

Identity Crisis – Who am I? It’s so scary that you can lose 205lbs and still forget that you are not that obese person anymore.

It’sContinue reading “Identity Crisis – Who am I?”

#WeightWatchers – Making it Official!

Find your Super Woman – Nothing is Impossible!

  Nothing like a morning Moksha yoga class to reset your mind and allow you to think a little clearer, process thoughts and get grounded.

YesterdayContinue reading “Find your Super Woman – Nothing is Impossible!”

Challenging Times – But Fun Times!

  The past several weeks my weigh ins have been a bit of a yo-yo. I had had my first gain in early June which I handled well considering it was my first since I started weight watchers 18 months ago. I think it was almost a relief to not have that pressure to sustainContinue reading “Challenging Times – But Fun Times!”

141 lbs in 12 months!

Today I had my one year weigh in since I started Weight Watchers Online. What a year it has been for me. I couldn’t be happier with my one year results. I lost weight at a healthy rate, I had a ton of fun along the way and changed my life forever. My life today doesn’tContinue reading “141 lbs in 12 months!”

Getting excited!

Well, only 5 more sleeps until the Goodlife 8K Road Race. I am getting so excited. I have been visualizing how the day is going to go.

100 lbs to celebrate!

Yippy! Today I finally hit a 100 lbs weight loss! I seriously can’t believe how far I have come in 7 short months. I am a completely different person than I was on Jan 12th when my journey began.
