Well that escalated quickly

So, here's my weight: I am disappointed, but also happy to have ammunition to use when people pressure me into doing things that I don't necessarily want to do like drinking, staying out super late, having a piece of pie, etc. I'm not blaming anyone, because my choices are┬ámy choices, but the next time someone … Continue reading Well that escalated quickly

175.5?! Let’s reflect on where it went sideways

I am determined to keep up this downward trend. I'll post my progress once per week when I officially weigh … Continue reading 2 pounds down: slowly chipping away at my plateau
