Living a placeholder existence…walking in someone else’s shoes.

Welcome 2018, Bye 2017, oh what a year you were. I’m up a few pounds over the holiday season, I’m down eleven inches on my waist since I started in April 2017 and down 80+ lbs since starting this journey. On a whim, I went to my favorite shoe store and asked to...

Freestyle and Focus

I went completely off the rails from the Friday before Christmas through Christmas Day.  I didn’t track, ate whatever I wanted and ate too much. The scale reflects it. The upside is that I didn’t eat nearly as much as in the past and I did actually take a bite of a...

From a Lifetime of Failing to Succeeding!

I started Weight Watchers again 8 ½ months ago and I was 99% sure it would NOT work.  I have just about always been overweight and have lost weight a few times, but always gained it back and then more.   I was on weight watchers many times and have previously...
