    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 11

    So, I’ve been off from my weigh in for two weeks. We missed Week 9 and Week 10, but I’m back it with my Week 11 weigh in! I don’t have an excuse for my week leading up to vacation, but on vacation I definitely didn’t have a scale. I did so much walking over my vacation, so I’m curious to see if that makes any difference when it comes to my weigh-in. We are about to find out… WEDNESDAY WEIGH IN: WEEK ELEVEN Starting weight at end of Week 8 244lbs — Current weight 249lbs — Weight loss or gain +5lbs…. ouch. — What attributed to my loss or gain?…

    So Fresh and So Clean!

    WELCOME TO THE NEW (& IMPROVED) OH MY SAMCAKE! I am coming at your from my brand new domain, ohmysamcake.com. I wanted to do something that would really solidify who I am, and what I want to produce for you. Having the “.wordpress.com” on my name wasn’t the worst thing in the world, but I really love the way it looks without it. Don’t you agree? As stated in my “Ch-ch-changes” post, I have been working with a really great graphic designer named Lindsay to help put something together to represent the vibe I want to give off. A couple of back-and-forths between us, and suddenly, there it was. That was…
