The secret revealed. For me, anyway.

I've mentioned before how my commitment now is to my health and not to my weight anymore.  I'm working out on average 5 out of 7 days and I commit to sweating and walking at least 3.5 miles at an incline.  That's it, end of story.  The scale hates me, even now.  I am discouraged by the lack of number change on that damn thing but am encouraged that today I fit into pants I haven't worn since, well, I don't know?  Right after William was born and I lost some weight I think.  Anyway, it's been a while and although the number on the pants is still too embarrassing to mention here, it's an accomplishment for me.  Just better food choices, still some old horrible ones, working out as often as possible to balance those out, and no more scale.  Maybe that's the secret.  Finally. Jesus.  I've only been looking for it for the last 15 years.


  1. I found out I was at risk for diabetes and had to change my diet a few years ago. I did add exercise to the routine, but as you say, better food choices helps tremendously. I weened myself down from 2% milk to fat free, started taking my coffee black, ate more chicken and less red meat, added fish (blech) into the diet, and of course had to "sugar free" just about everything I could. I trained my tongue to do without as much sweetness, but Splenda definitely has helped. As a result I dropped 20 pounds in about 3 months and now I can fit into that hot little number I've been dying to wear!...seriously though, my jeans finally stopped cutting off the blood-flow below my waist and now I can even fit my hand down my pants for any necessary scratchings!

  2. that's awesome, ashley. always such a great feeling to fit into clothes you haven't fit into for a long while. keep it up!!!!
