Weigh-In Wednesday…It’s Been a Long Time Comin’


I cannot BELIEVE how long it has been since I’ve typed a single word here on this blog.
It’s amazing how quickly time can pass when life gets in the way.
I think it’s way past time to show my poor little blog some long overdue love and attention.

2016 was a rough year for me.
Dealing with my mother’s passing…
Starting a new business in direct sales
Being diagnosed with PCOS…
Having unexpected emergency surgery due to that PCOS diagnosis…
Gaining 60+ lbs thanks to that surgery/recovery and the hormone pills I have to take…

Yeah- it’s been difficult to say the least.

I want to send a BIG thanks to all my readers and followers who have reached out during this time…making sure I’m still alive.
I am still kickin’…just not always very high!



I am back and determined to make this year better than ever!!

My first step, of course, is to begin winning this weight war.

So, I made my first pilgrimage of the new year back to see my friends at Weight Watchers.
I was so nervous to step on the scale.
When the numbers finally flashed up, it was easy to see why…


Yep, you read that right…424.2 lbs.
This is the absolute BIGGEST I have ever been.

The numbers alone are enough to make you want to quit before you even begin.
Not to mention the physical challenges in the way.

Ironically though, this wasn’t how I immediately felt.
Instead, I felt empowered to do something about it!
Seems my daily devotional calendar agrees!


I know I have a long road ahead of me.
And I know that I have a lot of roadblocks in my way.
The hormone pills I have to take for the rest of my life?
The first side effect listed is weight gain!

It’s going to be a struggle…but the end result will be so worth it!


So, wish me luck, send up a prayer, and let’s get this party started!

Until next time…chew the right thing!
