Oh, powerful scale, you have the power to make or break my day. Today is "weigh-in" day. I only weigh myself once a week. I can't wait to see the results from my hard work. Could it be as much as 5 pounds? (giddy with excitement) Coul... Read more

I'm going to McDonald's for breakfast today. I can hear you all sighing, but it's okay. In the past, I went to McDonald's probably 5 times a week. I haven't been there in 16 days. It's a planned meal. Not a treat or a reward. I'm... Read more

Tripped Myself Up

Silencing My Negative Voice
Wednesday, July 18, 2018      12 comments

I woke up with a migraine headache. My first thought was, I should go to McDonald's for a sausage egg McMuffin and a Large Diet Coke. It always makes me feel better. My second thought... food is not medicine. I have prescription medicin... Read more

Last night, I over ate Lay's Sea Salt Poppables. Next time, I will count out one portion rather than eat out of the bag. I will slow down and think "is this worth what it will do to my weight loss effort?" Mulling over... did the D... Read more
