A "Come to Jesus" Moment
Thursday, July 10, 2014      7 comments

Urban dictionary defines it as "An epiphany in which one realizes the truth of a matter." After years of running from the truth of the matter, it has finally dawned on me: I need to eat a low-calorie diet. Pretty much every day. For the r... Read more
Small streak, small reward
Wednesday, July 09, 2014      1 comments

I have an incredibly tiny streak going right now -- 3 days of proper nutrition. I love streaking. And I love rewards. But when rewards are tied to weight loss, you can go along time without getting one. That sort of defeats the purpose o... Read more

Expecting Immediate Results
Friday, June 27, 2014      5 comments

One way in which I have been setting myself up for failure is by expecting immediate results. When I weighed much more, I could make relatively small changes and get moderate results instantaneously. If I made large changes, I got HUGE res... Read more

Higher Standards

For the longest time I just wanted to be under 200 pounds. It does not fill me with pride to admit that I weighed over 200 pounds for nearly seven years. Then, through a lot of hard work and determination and above all CONSISTENCY, I got b... Read more
Ditching the FitBit
Friday, June 20, 2014      6 comments

I've really enjoyed having my Fitbit over the past few months -- but I won't be using it moving forward. My main issue with the FitBit -- and I'd imagine this would be true of any activity tracker -- is that it makes me feel like I'm more a... Read more
Unintentional break from the scale
Wednesday, June 18, 2014      4 comments

My scale ran out of batteries so I haven't weighed myself since last week -- maybe Thursday? It is pretty weird given that I have seldom missed a day of weighing myself in about two years. I rely on the scale to let me know how I'm doing. Wit... Read more
