Tailgating is my Demise...

This weekend was a whole lot of hot dogs, fried chicken, pizza, Dairy Queen, McDonald's, and plain old junk food.

Tailgating, why do you hate me so??

This past week, I was doing pretty decent. I was eating somewhat healthy, or at least not crappy, and I was moving around a bit more.

Then came the weekend....

It started out alright, when I went to walk the Race for the Cure with the lovely Anna Kurns.... We bailed at the 1 mile mark. Hangovers and a lack of water make for a terrible start to working out.

This is where it gets ugly. 

For breakfast, I had powdered doughnuts and a WHOLE LOT of water. Then, we went to our friend John's parents' tailgate. They had gourmet hot dogs (delish) and the most incredible cake I have ever tasted. Then we walked over to the Kurns' tailgate and had fried chicken and cookies... and a big bowl of candy. After tailgating, we went home to sleep. (Great way to burn calories, right??) For dinner, we went to Dairy Queen where I had a corn dog and a chocolate shake.

For breakfast the next morning, I had 1 and 1/2 McDonald's breakfast sandwiches. For lunch I had pizza. For dinner I had a leg of fried chicken from KFC.

In short.......

I am not near a scale, so I can't weigh myself today, thank goodness. (Its probably for the best... I'll weigh myself at the end of the week this week.)

Maybe we should have a salad this week.......

Small Triumph


I lost .4 lbs! Insignificant? You may think so, but its .4 lbs closer to 130 than I was last week!!

I received a text from my cousin, Aly, today telling me her weight (which I will not disclose on here), which reassured me that I wasn't alone in the weight loss journey.

From here on out, I will post my weight every Monday. (A little thing Aly suggested) That way, I'm held accountable for what I'm failing to do, or I can share my little triumphs with all of you!

Please keep the feedback coming- its helping more than you all know!!

A Lady Doesn't Reveal Her Weight


That is my current weight. I have been fluctuating back and froth between 135 and 140. Obviously, I am at the peak of that fluctuation at the moment, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let myself go over that 140 mark.

I weighed myself yesterday (and again about 30 seconds ago) "just to see."

I am so unhappy with my weight.

Right now is the time to do something about it. I can go for a jog, I can cut back the junk in my diet, but I can't seem to figure out how to motivate myself.

Enter all of you.

I need all of your help to keep me on track, and I will do the same for you.

As we approach the dreaded season of eating fatty foods and sweets "just because," we are all going to need to have a network of people who are going through similar struggles.

So here is my new resolution: I will lose 9.8 pounds. I will keep those 9.8 pounds off. I refuse to let food ruin my 20's by letting it take over my body and hijack my weight.
Any and all support any of you are willing to give will be returned 10 fold!

I know I can count on you ladies!! Happy start of this Dreaded Season of Food!! ;)
