Let's get real here for a hot minute

Those of you who follow me on Facebook may have noticed something.

I have not been keeping up with my weekly Friday weigh-ins.

My last Friday weigh-in on Facebook was February 5, 2016.   146.6 lbs.  Here's the official photo of that weigh-in:
I've been telling myself these tall tales in my head and thinking that I could do this weight loss maintenance thing without stepping on the scale.  

You know, that thing called "accountability."

I've been joking with myself into thinking I could do weight maintenance using the "how I feel" and "see how my clothes fit" methods.

But no.

No way, Jose.

I have learned these past few months that I cannot do that. 

Those non-scale methods of accountability do not work for me.
I could tell you that I have not been doing my weekly weigh-ins for all kind of  excuses  reasons.  

But it doesn't matter what those reasons are because here's what's gone down these past few months:

Food choices that were not always protein-focused. 

Food choices that were too large of portions.

Food choices that were ridiculous and it's time for me to slow my roll.

It is all about my food choices.

It ends here.

I am owning this.

So I stepped on the scale this morning.
Yep, 153.4 lbs.

That's 8.4 lbs above my goal weight of 145 lbs.

I am catching this slippery slope now.

Here's what I am doing to stop this ridiculous weight-gain:

Tracking my food choices by WRITING THEM DOWN

Stay tuned for Friday's weigh-in.

It'll be off the hook.


  1. Good luck! You've got this!

  2. Marriage does that to you! Just joking! Congrats on your gorgeous wedding and the pics are gorgeous!
