1. FIVE pounds in three weeks is SO awesome!! When I started my weight loss journey I NEEDED food logs! It really helped me to understand what I was putting in my body. Now after a year I am comfortable with making wise choices!! Keep up the awesome work!!


  2. How DO you know every Friday exactly what I need to read?!?!!?

    Congrats on how well you are doing. And that is such great perspective on mild hunger pangs/giving into the flesh/being thankful for all the good food already eaten….I needed that tough love.

    Blessings to you today…thanks again!

  3. I totally agree with you! I think that just eating more healthy foods, cutting out sugar and knowing where your ingredients came from is important. AND exercise, of course! Keep on doing what you're doing! You are doing great!

  4. eating healthy is definitely the way to go when trying to loose weight but exercise helps just as much, if not more…plus exercise puts anyone in a better mood. I too struggle with eating and feeling hungry all the time…so i carry snacks with me and just snack all day long. veggies, fruits, laughing cow cheeses, almonds,etc…its totally makes a difference!

    anyways…sounds like your on the right track! keep it up! 🙂 have a lovely weekend!

  5. Nice job figuring out what works for your body! I agree, nutrition is key to a healthy weight, and knowing what is enough. It's hard! Especially in our culture, where we have an abundance, and can snack whenever we want… I agree that it is okay to be a little hungry, but I am terrible at believing it for myself! Great tips. Visiting from fitness friday!

  6. I love fitness Friday 🙂

    I just bought my first container of Greek yogurt….I feel so hip and healthy with it in my frig. Ha 🙂

    Those recipes you mentioned from
    P90X2 sound awesome. Hmmm….I just might have to check into this!

    Your knowledge and well-thought out words and wisdom – bless me! Thanks Sandy!

    Kate 🙂

  7. I was having a blond moment or just a over tired moment-I had to share. I was reading "what I eat" part and began to think. WOW you eat a lot at breakfast. How can you eat all of that on one day!!!!!

    I had to reread to see that you listed several options. 🙂

    Thanks for the helpful info as I am currently in the process of recovering from a bout of chronic fatigue (I think-waiting on blood work) and have been reading and researching healthy/clean eating and different natural things to help with my energy and stress levels.

  8. I think you are absolutely amazing and hilarious (I just love reading your writing!). Thanks for the great food suggestions–my husband and I just started trying to lose weight today. Ugh. I'm a terrible dieter. But your suggestions were great. Thanks, Sandy!

  9. Heya! I understand this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does running a well-established blog such as yours take a massive amount work?
    I’m completely new to running a blog however I do write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips
    for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

  10. Hi Sandy, great post and I love your honesty. I strongly believe that we are all unique and the worst possible mistake one can make is to give up when it gets hard. You should always stay focused on your goal and take your time, nothing good happens over night. Keep the good work!

  11. I agree with most of your techniques for losing weight, although I recommend you do keep a food diary. Several studies have shown that people who keep food journals are more likely to be successful in losing weight and keeping it off. People keeping a food diary six days a week lost about twice as much weight as those who kept food records one day a week or less.

  12. I Love your blog – always inspiring and informative,looking forward to read more articles from this blog.

  13. Thanks for sharing your journey with us, Sandy. I agree all of us are created unique so what works for some, may not work for others. Loving ourselves, enjoying what we do and focusing on health instead of weight are my formula. Congratulations on your transformation, you’re such an inspiration.
