Weekly Weigh In ~ 04/05/16

In Weekly Weigh Ins by Tanya0 Comments

Current Weight: 220.6 Since July 2015: +65.8 Total: -25.2 My fear was that I would gain all my weight back since I couldn’t attend Weight Watchers while I was pregnant.  So, at least I didn’t gain back ALL of it.  SIGH.  This was not where I wanted to be after giving birth, but it’s time to face reality!   WHAT I ATE: Carbs and more carbs….bread and bagels and pasta…and burgers and doughnuts… HOW I …

Not Really Tanya…

In Healthy Living by Michelle1 Comment

Hello all you Not Really Hungry followers out there!  As you know, our dear Tanya is busy cooking a cute lil peanut, and so I had the brainiac notion that perhaps I could “ghost write” a bit while she’s otherwise occupied with where life has taken her at the moment.  Since Tanya’s leave of absence from WW, and with the changes to the WW plan, I’ve had the urge to journal, and I figured what …

We’re Pregnant!

In My Weight Loss Journey, Pregnancy by Tanya3 Comments

I apologize that I haven’t posted in 3 weeks! My last post was July 15.  On the evening of July 15, my life got turned completely upside down after a simple trip to Walgreens! We were told 2 1/2 years ago that we wouldn’t be able to get pregnant on our own.  They did give us a 1% chance, but to me that meant 0%.  If we didn’t get pregnant when we were really trying and …

Current Weight: 154.8 This Week: +1.2 Total: -91.0 Not only did I not lose the 3 pounds I gained last week, but I gained even more.  I know it was deserved but it’s still annoying.  I will admit that I did TERRIBLE on Saturday and Sunday.  Saturday was expected because of a birthday party, but Sunday was just a slip.  I didn’t feel well and I think I was comfort eating.  SIGH.  It just goes to …

BOD POD ~ Part 1

In Healthy Living, My Progress by Tanya4 Comments

If you read my blog, you know that I have been struggling to get to my goal for a long time now. Numerous people have told me that maybe I’m where my body wants to be and maybe I should accept myself as I am. I agree with this to a point but also feel like it would be giving up or quitting to stop with only five pounds to go. In an effort to …

Weekly Weigh In ~ 07/07/15

In Weekly Weigh Ins by Tanya1 Comment

Current Weight: 153.6 This Week: +2.8 Total: -92.2 I was expecting a gain, but I wasn’t expecting that much. Since 3500 calories = 1 pound, that would mean I ate 10,500 EXTRA calories? NO WAY. That’s just not possible. I am frustrated that I’m back to where I was 3 weeks ago, especially because I am the only one to blame. I am in control of what I’m eating, and I ate terribly a couple …

You hold the key

In Inspiration by Tanya0 Comments

It’s July.  It’s hard to believe that 2015 is half over.  Are you where you wanted to be on your goals?  I’m not. That’s okay. We still have 6 whole months left this year.  We should NOT want until January to start over.  We should not even wait until tomorrow to start over.  We can start right now. I know that it might sound easier said than done.  I know that it can seem overwhelming to …

In Weekly Weigh Ins by Tanya4 Comments

Current Weight: 150.8 This Week: -0.0 Total: -95.0 Well I didn’t lose anything this week, but I didn’t gain either!  After losing 3 pounds over the past two weeks, I can’t be too upset about this.  I didn’t meet my goals from last week. If I had, maybe this number would have been different.  That’s something for me to keep in mind moving forward this week. Oddly enough, I didn’t feel out of control or …

Weekly Meal Plan ~ 06/29/15

In Weekly Meal Plans by Tanya1 Comment

I didn’t share a meal plan last week because I felt like they were getting repetitive.  It turns out that if I don’t post it, I procrastinate getting it done!  This week I had it done Sunday morning, but just didn’t get it posted on time.  I intended to post this yesterday on my lunch breach but things were hectic and I couldn’t get to it.  So here it is, a couple days late! I …

Habits of a Loser ~ Be Active

In Habits of a Loser, Healthy Habits by Tanya0 Comments

Before I joined Weight Watchers in 2009, I was the poster child for a sedentary lifestyle. I would sit for 8 hours a day at work and then come home and sit on the couch for another 3-5 hours. The only time I would get off the couch was for food and to use the restroom. When I first joined WW, I was not active at all. I was too embarrassed to be seen working …

Current Weight: 150.8 This Week: -1.4 Total: -95.0 WOW!  I lost 2 weeks in a row!  It’s been awhile since I’ve done that.  I also lost more than I was hoping for – yay!  Maybe I got some of the snacking out of my system or maybe I just remembered why I’m really doing this.  I have been feeling very positive the past two weeks, and obviously that helps! I’m not quite back to my …

Before and After ~ Tanya

In My Progress, Success Stories by Tanya2 Comments

After my mother’s stroke, I fell into depression and gained a significant amount of weight. I carried that weight for over 6 years before I found the strength to make a change. I finally decided I was done feeling terrible all the time. I was scared to make a change but I was even more scared to stay the same. I lost 88 pounds in 15 months, and I’m still working on my last 12 …

Simply Snackin Gourmet Jerky

In Food Finds by Tanya1 Comment

I’ve never been a big beef jerky person, but I had been wanting to try this since Hungry Girl has recommended it several times. I finally had my first taste because Hungry Girl gave away free samples on her book tour – yay! I liked it so much that I bought the assortment pack so we could try all the flavors. Seriously, this stuff is amazing. We liked every single flavor. We have our favorites …
