March Mindset

Over the past few weeks, I’ve realized I’ll be turning 35 this year – in less than 8 months. Something about that just kind of hit me. 35 is the official midpoint of my thirties, and before I know it, 40 will be around the corner. In thinking about it, I realized that much of […]

I Wish I had Weight Watchers as a Teenager.

On Saturday in my Weight Watchers meeting, my leader mentioned in passing the news that Weight Watchers was going to start offering free memberships to teens 13-17. I didn’t think much of it other than an “oh, that’s a cool idea.” That is, until tonight when I started seeing the backlash – specifically, this article. […]

I want better for my girls. I do not want a number to define their self-worth. They are more than that.

Where I’m At {A Weight Loss Update}

It’s been a while since I talked about my weight loss journey around here. Honestly, it’s because I’ve been stuck. And being stuck is not exactly fun to write about. If you’re new around here, you may want to catch up on when I’ve previously written about my weight (here). Basically, the short story is […]
