My story

Years of yo-yo diets.

I have been up and down with my weight since high school. Having some success for a while but always ended up gaining the weight back. At my highest weight I weighed 230 lbs and was wearing a size 20/22.

I got introduced to the keto diet and started changing the way I ate. I lost 50 lbs in about 6 months and was feeling so good!

And then I stalled… here we go. Back to the yo-yo cycle again.

What changed?

I started listening to some podcasts that focused on mindset. Some were pretty woo-woo out there. But the overall message started to sink in..

Want better results? Change the way you fucking think!!

The aha moment I needed. I tried all these crazy diets and exercise routines but never once tried to change my thoughts around food. WTH? So flipping obvious!

Over the last 6 months, I’ve lost an additional 25 lbs and have been working on my thoughts that lead me to overeating. I’m so close to goal…only 5 to go. And guess what? I’m stalling again.

I’ve been journaling, drinking my water, getting exercise and food prepping but that last 5 lbs….ooh that last 5 lbs. Still out of reach. Why? Self sabotage.

Eating off plan, eating pass satisfied, eating when I’m tired. All the same ol bullshit creeping it’s way back in.

That’s why I decided to start blogging. I need to do something bold and out of my comfort zone to keep me motivated and accountable.

And as y’all can already guess, I’m new to this blogging thing. So be patient as I figure out what I’m doing.

Ultimately I would love to share tricks and tips, recipes, my fav reads etc. to help you if you also struggle.

Until next time kids, I hope you have a marvelous fucking day. Go kick some ass!

I’m the go to friend and family member if you need something done. But I don’t give myself the same commitment. I say no more! This is the end of my life long yo-yo dieting. No more quitting projects halfway through. No more giving up on myself. Period!
