Drop it like it’s Hot! The Quest to Lose 20 Pounds in Three Months

I need to drop 20 pounds.  I am getting married on June 15 and I was worried about my dress fitting since my ten pound weight gain, and sure enough I couldn’t zip it up.  I bought myself a sample size dress from a bridal convention last year in 2018 and there is no ability to let […]

When You Gain Back Weight You Worked Your Butt Off to Lose

Probably one of the greatest frustrations one can experience is “waking up” and realizing you cannot go back to old habits and if you want to continue to lose or maintain, you need to stick to the healthy lifestyle change.

I am Screaming about a New Ice Cream Discovery!!!

One of the greatest challenges for me in sticking with Weight Watchers & their Freestyle Smart Points program has been the sugar factor.  Like many men & women out there, my Achilles heel is my sweet tooth!   My absolute greatest weakness is ice cream and gelato!  Nothing soothes my sweet tooth like a nice […]

The Similarities Between Dieting & Budgeting

Last night I snacked on celery & carrot sticks with salsa because I had no points left for the day. Earlier I had an English Muffin (four points) and two tablespoons of cream cheese (five points), which was the bulk of my supper. I had a peach for dessert (zero points). If you haven’t already […]

Shopping Ban & Weight Gain = Muffin Top

Some of my followers know that between December and early April, I was recovering from an invasive foot surgery. I was in a hard cast for six weeks and then a walking boot for seven weeks.   It was a hard time for me not being able to hit the gym and pump those happy endorphins […]

Oh Sugar! 

Oh Sugar!  A recent purchase after a hard day at work I am an addict, but my addiction isn’t to an illegal substance, or to something which involves 12 steps or a weekly meeting, no, I am addicted to sugar. I have always considered myself to be a healthy person. I work out at the […]
