    Wednesday Weigh In – Week 8

    I felt better this week going into my weigh in. I wasn't sure if I had lost or gained, and to be honest I thought I had gained but mentally, I was accepting of it. I have been non-stop for a few days, and I'm finally getting my mindset in a better place for the coming weeks. My plans this weekend include picking up a pumpkin, visiting my mom, inventory at work, and starting to piece together my life for NYC! My trip is coming up so quickly, and I feel like I have so much I want to do before then.

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 5

    This blog, this website, this forum - it's for me to be open and honest. There's nothing I'm holding back, so that's why I'll be fully honest when I say: I've never been good at diets. Or at least never been good at maintaining diets. I can diet. I can research the hell out of a diet, and get my mentality in the right place. But then I'm a sucker. And I love sweets. I didn't get to where I am without loving sweets. The weight on my hips? Sweets. Thighs? Sweets. Present me with a cookie and I'll be your best friend.

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 4

    I’ve gained a lot of weight over the last few years. To be honest, my weight has always fluctuated. When I was a kid (and I’m talking like, a youngin), I was small. Probably from running around like nobody’s business. Going into middle school, and into high school, I started gaining more weight. That was aroun the peak of my anxiety issues, and I’m not surprised that I gained the weight that I did. I wasn’t doing anything. For part of middle school I was homeschooled, and going into high school the thought of gym glass made me so damn nervous that they were able to sub out that required credit…

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 2

    I am happy to say that I’m no longer afraid of the scale. I was – for a long, long time. I’m sure many people can relate to that feeling. I was always afraid of the number. I was always afraid of the idea of “Oh shit, did I gain more weight?” or “Man, I’m a lot heavier than I thought.” But now, I have a different feeling about it. I look forward to my weigh in. I’m curious to know how well I’ve done, or how poorly I’ve done. I’m interested to see how my choice to be active or not, and eat healthy or not, effects the weight…

    Wednesday Weigh In: Week 1

    HAPPY HUMP DAY! Last night/this morning marked the end of the first week of my Wednesday Weigh In challenge. Despite thinking that it wasn’t going to go very well, I’d like to think it was a bit of a success. It’s a bit daunting to be revealing my weight on the internet – but I’ve gotten some great positive feedback saying how brave I am, and how courageous I am. I’m holding onto that and pushing any overwhelming feelings to the side and just embracing it. I’m not ashamed of my body. I’m not ashamed of my weight. I’m ashamed that I’m out of shape. Should I be at the weight…

    Wednesday Weigh In: The Beginning

    August has been a lot busier than I intended for it to be. I feel like I left all of my summer for the last month, and have been busy every weekend. And, not to mention, even busy during the week. I took a week off from work, went away for a weekend, celebrated birthdays, and spent some time with friends. It’s been crazy busy, and now it’s time to get my head on straight. On Monday I got an e-mail – from my personal trainer (shout out to Colin if he ever reads this!) – which made me feel quite… disappointed in myself. I haven’t been being hard enough…
