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 […]

What is Your Why for Losing Weight and Staying Fit?

I believe Simon Sinek, author, motivational speaker and organizational consultant is the one who began the buzz phrase “what is your why?” and how defining your why can lead you to success & satisfaction. You can find a plethora of talks on YouTube by Sinek, but with a focus more on careers and helping organizations […]

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 had lost twenty pounds by the time summer arrived last year in 2018.  My […]

The Number One Lesson of 2018 is Health is Everything…

The most important lesson 2018 taught me is nothing is more important than your health.  I have said it many times before, Health is Wealth.  Having a fantastic career is worthless without your health.  Having the financial means to travel, owning the opulent possessions, fancy cars, gorgeous mansions, it all means nothing without your health.  […]

What is Your Diet Kryptonite?

My Achilles heel when it comes to dieting is baked goods.  Specifically homemade chewy chocolate chip cookies.  As an adolescent I didn’t care for chocolate, and I had more of a salty tooth and less of a sweet tooth, but now that I am older my body shivers for sugary treats.  I mentioned previously in […]

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 […]

Weight Watchers – Three Months Later

On October 22, 2017 I joined Weight Watchers online, and the first three weeks were HELL. I ain’t gonna lie! My body went through some mega sugar withdrawals, and if you are already a member, you will know what I mean, and if you are becoming a member, you will know what I mean soon […]

Weight Loss Goals! 

What are my goals for losing weight? I would like to optimally lose 30 lbs., but my goal isn’t to be skinny, I want to be healthy and strong. Muscle weighs more than fat, and I am doing some weight and strength training, so what the scales tell me isn’t necessarily going to dictate my […]

Weeks 3 & 4 on Weight Watchers

I am not sure if the sugar detoxification is over or the worst of it is over, but weeks three & four went much better than anticipated.  I wasn’t as hangry & I am discovering new low smart point snacks and treats.   For instance, sugar free Jell-O is zero points and it is one […]

Week Two – Down Two

I completed my second week of Weight Watchers and I am down an additional two pounds which takes me to a grand total of 4.8 lbs.  I can see the numbers going down on the scale, but my clothing doesn’t feel loose yet; this could be because some of my threads were becoming pretty tight, […]
