I feel like it’s time to move to the next phase of my journey. I’m getting a little complacent. I’ve found I’m eating low-carb snacks here and there. I resolved to stick to the 2-3 meals and no-snacking plan, but that’s slipping a bit. However, I feel like I’m coasting and coasting is going to […]

When you’re on a lifelong weight loss journey, it is amazing how fast you can get upset with yourself over perceived failures. I struggle with this, but I’m getting better. Why? I’m doing everything I can to be kind to myself and not beat myself up when I’m not losing as fast as I want […]
