Week 7: What does success really look like?

For most people on a weight loss program, success is defined solely by the number on the scale. That’s how it used to be for me, too. But is that really fair to ourselves? I’m counting this past week as a success, even though I gained a little bit. Here’s why: This was the second […]

Week 6: Back in the saddle again

I feel like you should all prepare for this trend. Week A: So great, yay! Week B: Not great, boo! Week C: Great again, yay! And so on and so forth. So here we are for a yay! week.

Week 5: So. Many. Excuses.

Last Sunday, I went to urgent care because I was reasonably certain I had a sinus infection. Last time that happened, I ignored it until it became walking pneumonia. Seemed like that would be less than intelligent to let that happen again. Excuse No. 1. The meal plan this week was really not my cup […]

Week 4: Hello, motivation

After a rocky Week 3, I made it up to myself and found my motivation again. And it paid off. I lost about 7.5lbs. I know that’s a lot for one week, but that’s not entirely abnormal for the beginning of a weight loss journey. So yay me!

Week 1: Ouch.

This week was the first week of pre-training. I opted not to get started on the nutrition program until the first week of the regular fitness program so that it would all line up. The result? I gained 1.8 pounds. But that’s ok. Not an excuse, but a dose of reality: My starting weight was […]

Time to be the boss of my body again

OK, so I wrote before that I was going to start Weight Watchers again and everything was going to get back to working for my body! The weight loss would magically start to happen and I’d be in pre-babies shape again in no time! Guess what. That was bullshit. It didn’t work because I just […]
