I heard a couple of commercials yesterday that set my mind spinning and wondering what have we become? The first was for a laser clinic suggesting you should get mom some treatments for mother's day. So how would that go? Thanks for rai... Read more

I have really put a lot of focus on non-scale life events that have come along with losing weight. This weekend it was the rediscovery of taste buds. I was craving sweet and I thought I wanted something decadent instead of fruit so when the s... Read more

This morning my daughter called me at 7AM to see if to see if I wanted to go walk around town and look for garage sales. I love that my kids call me that early, they know I don't sleep in and it's a great way to start my day. It was a b... Read more
Loving the changes that are happening

Something happened last night and I loved it. My husband offered to pick up a few groceries and I didn't have to explain to him that he had to pick up fruits and veggies. He came home with nothing but fresh veggies and healthy snacks. I laugh... Read more

Easter weekend was amazing. Sunday brought all of the kids and grand kids over for dinner which was interesting. Both my husband and I made sure to use our points wisely and planned to allow for a big dinner. We all know how plans go right? ... Read more

This morning I woke up feeling in control and excited. It took me awhile to figure out what was causing that. I get up at 4:30. No one is excited and in control at 4:30. I felt lighter, I felt that I was making good choices. Then I looked at ... Read more

Happy butt wiggle dances the plateau is done! I am thrilled that after two weeks I saw movement on the scale...and even in the right direction! I'm giving my husband and myself a pat on the back for how we handled the last two weeks... Read more
Battle of the sweet tooth...errrr...teeth

Take away the fast food, greasy foods, salty foods and chips. That really doesn't bother me at all, but if you ask me to pass you a butter tart I can't promise it won't arrive without a big bite out of it. Baked goods are my downfall. I... Read more
It's the little things

It's being able to stand on one foot to put a sock on and not having to sit on the bed anymore to do that. It's being able to do up a seat belt and not having to see if it stretches out just a little bit further. It's going grocer... Read more
Hello plateau, we meet again.

It was bound to happen, after week after week of wonderful losses I'm stuck. Last week I attributed the zero weight loss to making unwise choices, even though I stayed in my points range I didn't lose. This week I ate amazing, I was the epito... Read more

This week was the first week since January that I didn't lose weight, I didn't gain, I just stayed the same. That's fine, this is going to happen and I was willing to accept that but then that little voice deep inside me of me asked that nagg... Read more
What breakfast can trigger
Tuesday, April 01, 2014      2 comments

I'm not sure about other people but with me my breakfast really sets the tone for the day on eating. If I get up in the morning and start my day with fresh fruit and oatmeal or multigrain toast I know this will lead to a healthy snack of some... Read more

Yesterday I was having a moment. I pulled a sweater that I really like out of the drawer and popped it over my head. Ugh, it's stretched. I turned to my husband and asked him what he did to my sweater, it's all out of shape. (Yes, he does the... Read more

This week I reached just over 35 pounds lost and it was time to try on some clothes I had put aside for this milestone. The first pair of pants fit so well that I wore them to my grand daughter's first birthday. I couldn't believe that they w... Read more
Being able to taste food
Thursday, March 13, 2014      3 comments

For me one of the advantages of healthy eating that I'm really enjoying is the ability to really taste food again. When I eat unhealthy only the sweetest food, the greasiest foods seem to have flavour but by ridding my system of those things ... Read more
