I keep starting an entry and then stopping. I keep typing and then deleting. Let’s face it – it’s hard to write in a healthy living blog when your current idea of exercise is getting up to go to the fridge. I bought up in sizes. Something I vowed to never do again. A promise … Continue reading

I remember hitting 200.2lbs on the scale and the fear being immobilizing. I couldn’t remember ever seeing a 1 in front. For months this paralyzed me. I would teeter right at 200lbs, never once seeing that elusive 1. 200.2, 202, 201.6, always close but never quite there. I was so frustrated. So angry. So desperately … Continue reading
The Calm Before the Storm
It’s an addiction. I know I have an addictive personality. I know I have to be careful. I know I think in black and white terms. And yet I still think about it. Dieting. Weight loss. The control. The restriction. The beauty of it all. I miss my spreadsheets. I miss the scale going down. … Continue reading
Not Always Pounds
I got insanely frustrated while I was training for the half marathon because the pounds weren’t dropping like I had expected them too. Hell, I was averaging 30+ miles some weeks.

What I didn’t say.
I haven’t had a scale in exactly 6 weeks. My weigh in will be the moment of truth when I see if I can successfully do this without the obsession of my scale. Already, in my head, I’ve been doing the math on what numbers would be acceptable to see. What numbers would upset me. What … Continue reading
How Do I Meal Prep?
“I want to eat more clean but that shit takes forever during the busy week without prep.” A good friend of mine asked for some tips in the form of a post, so I’m a kind enough soul to oblige. I honestly think people try and get too fancy when they start eating clean and over … Continue reading
What is healthy?
I’ve read that some 95% of people regain their lost weight and many gain even more than what they originally lost. Weight loss has two sides: mental and physical. Most people *think* they have the mental aspect down, but when shit hits the fan there is no telling what happens. Weight loss is probably more … Continue reading
Taking Control Back
I’ve never understood how someone can weigh in just once a week. Scales are meant to weigh yourself with multiple times. Multiple times a day. Hi, my name is Danielle and I’m a scale addict. My obsession with the scale has impacted me negatively in the following ways: it dictates my mood for the day. A huge loss … Continue reading
The Space Between Us
I weighed 325lbs and never once thought I was unattractive. In fact, I thought I was hot. Smoking hot. Curvy, thick, and juicy. If you tried to tell me otherwise I would have laughed in your face. My confidence attracted people. I had boyfriends and heart breaks. People either hated me or loved me, but either way I still always had … Continue reading
