Begin Again

April 13, 2017 – April 19, 2017 After last week’s disappointment from my weigh in, this week was completely different. A complete shift in my mindset. I spent the majority of my week making sure I got my food in on budget. I knew that lunch on Sunday, which was Easter, was going to be […]

Truly, I can say that this has been a very smooth transition into losing weight. No frustration. Zero hunger issues. In the first 5 weeks, I’ve lost just under 8 pounds. I […]

Back in 2011, I had a goal to work towards. On January 6, 2011, I woke up and told Angela that I wanted to lose weight. I told her that I would track my food. I would go to the gym 5-6 times a week. That was it. That was my whole plan. I didn’t […]

Full Disclosure: This post was a hard one for me to write and even publish. I actually wrote another draft of it almost a year ago but immediately deleted it. I didn’t want anyone to read it or even know about it. I’ve been asking myself should I even release it. But you know what, […]
