Am I Really Fat? by Shannon Bradley-Colleary →
Something to read and re-read as I lose weight. Is your goal a six pack or healthy?
Weight Watchers Convo
WW Leader: I'm so excited for you!
Me: Really? I'm not excited.
WW Leader: I'm not sure if you ever eat fast food.
Me: *trying not to laugh*
WW Leader: We have a great set of e-tools and you can always get a chicken breast at Pollo Loco and take the skin off.
Me: I like the skin.
WW Leader: And, if you go to the movies you can use your toaster oven (if I was 90 years old), slice apples and turn them into chips! You can even add Splenda and cinnamon!!!
Me: I'm really not excited.
A Fry That Is French
Someone said, “You become what you think about.” That makes me french fries.
Did You Hear That?
That’s the weight finally coming off. Do and the scale will follow.

Your Two Cents: Soda and Potatoes
One of the leading contributing factors to gaining pounds, according to those studies always coming out. Never heard anything good about soda, except that maybe Coke can shine chrome. Seriously? Luckily, I don’t have an affection for it. However, potatoes….well, they’re my arch nemesis. We all have one. I’m cheering you on!
Your Two Cents: H2O
Cannot underestimate the importance of drinking water. You will loathe the amount of trips to the restroom at first, but your body adjusts after a week and less trips are needed. A nutritionist once said to me, “Imagine each time you pee, you’re flushing away fat cells and toxins.” ;-)
What Motivates Me Today
I want to be the hot wife. I want to be the pretty mama. I want to look pregnant not questionable one day. I want to sleep well and dream sweetly. I don’t want to think every ache and pain is a pending heart attack and keep baby aspirin close by. I want to live without burden. This motivates me today. This is why I’m going to keep moving tonight.
Boot camp in one hour. If I die it was a real pleasure knowing you.
Guest Post: Miss Taylor Cast Runs A Marathon
Today I took a cab to the gym…that I live walking distance from. Yes, I took a $5 cab ride to the gym. Does that defeat the purpose? Probably. Do I care? Not really. But I did feel a little embarrassed getting out of the cab. Next time I’ll make him drop me at the corner. It was 15 degrees out at 6am stop judging me.

Two Apple Pies
So I went thru McDonalds thinking I could transition slowly by ordering something healthy. My order? Two packs of apple slices. They heard two packs of apple pies. Pure attempted corporate sabotage. ;)
my best tip at the moment: Stay away from TV. This country eats way too much, and advertises way too much about it. Love, d

Reasons to Stop Drinking Soda
I know you can send me to a site with the evils of soda but I would have watched it if I wanted to. I didn’t. The reasons I make changes have to be mine or else they will feel forced as if there is a diet gun to my head. I don’t like diets. I don’t like guns. I really don’t like them at my head. My reasons have to be MY reasons just like your reasons have to...

Expert Advice from PayanX →
Marc Payan followed up on my 16 habits with the following great bit of advice… Instead of wasting your time with 40 min of cardio daily alone try combining #s 3 &4: Example- Run 2 minutes, squats 2 minutes, push ups 2 minutes, lunges 2 minutes, sit ups 2 minutes and then rest for a minute and do it 3X. BAM! You’re done in 33 minutes!

Goal One is to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday in June.
Do you want me to be honest with you? It really is about the cigarette. I saw it coming a couple years ago. Overweight people, including me, were beginning to get those looks of disgust like cigarette smokers always get. The problem is they can’t send you out on the patio if you’re too fat. Or can they? Is the time coming where obesity will be looked at like the cigarette and...
