Back At It!

After a five month hiatus I'm back. Mostly because I want to chronicle weight loss journey #3642. 

What changed ? 

I gained another 10 pounds over the past year. I had to take a hard look at myself. And realize that eating my feelings wasn't helping anyone. Especially me. I want to be able to enjoy my life. To walk without losing my breath to not have to shop in stores specifically designed for fat people. 

I got frustrated with my husband for not taking care of himself when I was doing no better. So. I'm doing better. 

Starting Over 

I started my weight loss journey at 255.5 pounds. And a 52 inch belly. That's not a typo. I hold all of that weight  in my middle as shown in this terrifying before shot 
What I'm doing

Thanks to some great motivation (and shame) from my friends and family I'm moving. I got a Fitbit and am walking with the intent of doing 5Ks. I'm back on Weight Watchers a program that I know works for me. I'm giving me a chance to live the life I deserve. 


Week 1 - 1.7 lb loss, 3.5 inches disappeared.

That Time I Ate A Salad

Alternate title... Remember to hit save 

I had a salad for lunch today. Mostly because I forgot my lunch in a box. Partially because it's four(4!!!!!!!) degrees outside and who wants to be bothered. But also because I'm capable of making good food choices.....sometimes.. 

For this, I deserve a cookie shaped sticker. 

Admittedly, this would've been much harder if today is nacho day. But nacho day was eliminated from the cafeteria (whhhhhyyyyyyyyyyy?!?!?!) which is probably a good thing. 

The hardest thing about eating better is getting past the initial week or so of cravings. When your body wonders where all the pizza grease went. Staying full is the key. Starving yourself or doing something weird like only eating pears is a giant set up for failure. That's how you and up at White Castles at 2 a.m. Inhaling the left side of the menu. I don't want to be that person. Lol. 

Lunch day 1 - accomplished. Next up, pushing past the 2 p.m. "If I don't have a cookie I'm going to fall asleep at my desk" wall.

I Do Exist!

Happy New Year!!!! 

And Merry Christmas, happy Thanksgiving and hope your Halloween was awesome! 

Where'd I go? I was on my hustle aka writing lots of words that weren't written here. Keeping up with my writing is definitely on my list for 2015. However, I have to do a better job of balancing regular me with hustle me. I don't really have resolutions but I do have an artisticish representation of my goals for the year. 

Miss Ladybug is doing great. I swear she talks more than any other person in the history of man, but it's kind of awesome. She's super imaginative and there's always a song, a dance or a complete act of a play in action. 

Jethro is back at work which gives me some much needed breathing room. It also eliminates my biggest reason for why I just couldn't let go of the stress eating. Soooooooo I need to get my shit together. I've tightened up in so many areas of my life, now it's time to really get the physical aspect in line. Not because it's 2015 but because I deserve physical health as much as financial health. 

Completely unrelated, I'm currently obsessed with Myers Briggs and understanding my personality and how I need to interact with others. Especially because I'm a thinking personality and Jethro is a feelings one...and feelings make me tired. Lol.  2015 is 10 years of marriage for us and marriage is all about communication and hard work. If someon tells you different they're a dirty liar. 

Expect to see a lot more of me this year. 

What are your goals for the coming year?

About Me

I'm a 30-something wife, mom and pet parent. I've been blogging since 2004, at first solely on a blog for my friends and family. I love to write about everything. I can't say that A Bacon Flavored Life is about any one thing. If it occurs to me, it'll get posted. I write about life, love, infertility and a lot of "random".
