A Motivating Tool|Or Exercise

Yes, making lists is a form of exercise - mental/brain and physical. For me, rarely if ever do I follow the list. It's the making of one that motivates me to get going again.

Update On Big Foot

I couldn't get in to see my doctor till Tuesday, so took pictures in case I was healed by then.

Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) Shots

Everybody’s writing about them and basically writing the same thing. Don’t drink the shot undiluted. Dilute in 8 oz. of water or other beverage. Take it on an empty stomach before you eat.

Eat wiser today. You know how to do it. All humans instinctively know what's good for them to eat and what is not good for them to eat. How many times do you think to yourself or say out loud, 'I really shouldn't be eating this?' That goes for amounts too. Why do you think... Continue Reading →

28 Day Alcohol-Free Challenge

Although I don't drink much, I drink consistently and I'm wondering if it's adversely effecting my metabolic rate and increasing my triglycerides. I'm looking for something to jumpstart my weight loss, since I've plateaued at 157 pounds. Okay, so I'm 5' 7" tall and work my core muscles a lot, so that could account for... Continue Reading →

A Time To Be Careful

I lost a pound today. Well, I was one pound lighter when I weighed myself this morning than I was yesterday morning. This is the time to be careful.

Do it while you're... Continue Reading →

WEIGH SELF FULLY CLOTHED

New rule: Weigh myself fully clothed with shoes on after shower and breakfast.

Still, I refuse to fear the scales with... Continue Reading →

WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHERE’S MY FACE?

My face isn't fat. Everything else is. This is me at 160 lbs. Today I'm 157 lbs. Yet my measurements are larger.
