Weigh In….

weigh in




The Scale.

Maaaaan, after eating like I lost my damn mind last week at Blogalcious, I came home and bravely stepped on the scale to weigh in and see what the damage was.

Now, keep in mind that I hadn’t really stepped on the scale all month anyway, so I had a number from a month ago in my head and was thinking about the addition of maybe 2-5 pounds from the  Whataburger-red velvet cupcake-tex mex -alcohol induced coma that I was coming out of.


The number of the scale was so horrendous that I got off, took Pookah to school, and then went directly to the gym for a run.

And then went directly to Waffle House for a meal afterwards.

I’m giving myself the side eye don’t worry.

But see, this is the problem:


I could blame it on hormones( but all month tho?)

But I think the real culprit is stress.


Unfortunately, the stress is not going away.

But if I don’t watch it, my backside is going to keep spreading and I will not be able to fit into my largest pair of jeans( which are already tight).


I say all of this to say…


That I need to loose 30 pounds?

Yes I do.

That I need to exercise regularly?

Yes I do.

That I need to gain some self control and stop stuffing my face?


Easier said than done.

It seems that the closer I get to that magical age of 40, the more my body decides to rebel and hold on to whatever unwanted padding that I gain.

I used to be able to loose 10 pounds in a month, just by eating right and exercising.

Now, I could eat salad all day everyday and loose 1 pound.


I need a new game plan, but I feel like, me, the professional weight loss girl, can’t loose weight!


I’m ready for something drastic, but don’t know what.

No green smoothie challenge( didn’t work)

No low carb( didn’t work)

No calorie counting( I manage to cheat, so THAT DIDN’T WORK!)

See a pattern?

Now I haven’t tried it in years, but I’m so desperate that I’m considering going back to Weight Watchers.

Because…it’s the only thing I haven’t tried again.

Wish me luck.

Cause I’m not buying a whole new wardrobe.

The first step is always the hardest.

Any advice?

    None. I can eat right and so far I have only went over my calories by about 50 or 60 everyday so I am good on the food part. My problem is I don’t move. I don’t exercise or nothing. I sit at a computer all day and only move when its time to get the kids or in the evenings. I tried to walk 30 min a day up and down my hallway that lasted about 3 days. The kids have been on me to do it to but I make up an excuse. I think I am going to just accept my weight in the new year buy better bras and buy some undergarments to help on special occasions.

    I don’t have any advice for you. I struggle too.

    I’ve lost 20 pounds since June. I joined My Fitness Pal and I try to log my food everyday. I also have a Fit Bit that tracks my steps and communicates with MFP.

    Good luck to you! <3

    can I tell you a secret? I got back on WW a week ago. My eating was crazy because I was getting the rungries. Lost 1.7 last week so I am praying this will work. My issue is that I workout so much that I never eat all of my allotted points–which would SEEM like a good thing but its just another way to stall weight loss. ugh.

    Don’t even get me started! I actually did good and didn’t gain any weight. I must have had every damn Dasani water bottle so I’m sure that helped. Now my problem is stuff like coffee…you know with all the extra ish ie. calories! Starbucks takes my money then has the nerve to be high in calories too…smh! I don’t have any advice other than moderation. I gave up drinking Cokes so start with a few things and after a while you won’t even crave it. We’ve got a soda stream so if I want something carbornated I’ve been making my own little drinks with lime or lemon. Good luck!
