My Personal Weight Loss Journey (Twenty-sixth in a Series)

It’s nice to be finally getting back on track. With being in Myrtle Beach two weeks ago and dealing with my parent’s health issues last week, this week is seeing a return to a more comfortable pace and routine for me. I try to be flexible…

My Personal Weight Loss Journey (Twenty-fifth in a Series)

I spent last week in Myrtle Beach helping to open our newest clinic, so we didn’t have a blog or weigh-in last week. To answer the most important question people have asked me, Yes, I did see the beach but spent no time on it. I can confirm…

My Personal Weight Loss Journey (Nineteenth in a Series)

Last week did not go as well as I had hoped. The week before I weighed in at 201 pounds. In theory, I should have met my goal of 200 or below last Tuesday. Instead, I went up a pound. I have felt myself being under great pressure in this last…

My Personal Weight Loss Journey (Eighteenth in a Series)

I am exactly one week away from my 48th birthday. I had set myself a personal goal to be either at 200 pounds or (preferably) below by then. Last Tuesday I weighed in at 201. I feel like I have been doing well on my diet. With the warmer weather…
