My New Addiction: Mini Cucumbers

Where have mini cucumbers been my entire life? Why are mini cucumbers so much better than a regular sized cucumber? The answer to those questions are difficult to articulate but I can tell you one thing mini cucumbers are GREAT. Everyday for at least a solid week now I’ve been having mini cucumbers with a…

Health Update

Well, we made it to the halfway point. July is here. This 2020 Weight Loss graphic pretty much explains everything. January I started at 272 lbs and as of June 30th I’m 234 lbs. March and May taught me that diet is so, SO very important. I mean I ‘knew’ this but now I KNOW…

Calories In, Calories Out

Dieting, lifestyle, healthy eating, whatever you want to call it doesn’t have to be hard. Over the last 15 years I’ve tried so many different ‘diets’ or lifestyles with a membership fee, a catchy name, or claims of fast results. All of them left poorer, still fat, and sad. Weight Watchers Keto Plant Based Low…

Accountability

I started something new! I’m not quite ready to share all the details but it’s weight loss related, of course. If you’d like to follow along you can follow me on Instagram: thatslindsaywithana I post what I eat everyday along with the calories and Macros. I plan to write about it more very soon.  Trying…

Quarantine: Week One.

The Lose It Weight Loss Challenge was supposed to end TODAY. I obviously don’t have to explain why it was ended early, but here we are. On March 16th gyms in Iowa were ordered to close. As of that date I was at my lowest weight of 241.8. With no gym, social distancing, and the…

My Favorite at Home Workouts.

*This is not a TED talk, I’m not that smart*   Well I’m officially tired of talking about, reading about, and thinking about Coronavirus. We’re all feeling a certain way. As of today (Iowa) we our tentatively out of school for 4 weeks, businesses have adjusted their hours of operation, and social distancing is in…

First Goal Achieved! Plateau Broken!

After a 1 lb loss at my last weigh in on 2/28 I knew I needed to change up my diet and gym routine to push through my plateau. Any time that I’ve had weight to lose I plateau around month 3 which is usually the time I start heavy lifting. I drop a large…

Lose It Weight Loss Challenge: 5th Weigh In 2/28/20

Today was weigh in number 5! I knew going into this weigh in I would not see much movement on the scale. I started lifting over the last month and just like I predicted a 1 lbs loss. I’m down to 246 lbs. Not a huge movement. The number that made me feel better was…

How I Hit 300 lbs

Thankfully I haven’t seen the 300’s on the scale for quite a few years but in 2016 I was there. Actually I was over 300, quickly approaching the 330’s… I was a first time mom, but way past the ‘baby weight’ excuse. I had an active 6 year old, a full time job, and two…

My Current Sweet Obsession

I’ve been doing a fantastic job of sticking to healthy eating. I’ve avoided fast food 99% of the time, drinking almost all water, and avoiding junk. Lately though, I’ve had a bit of a sweet tooth. Chocolate doesn’t sound right, and anything super sugary just does not look appealing. It’s amazing how your cravings change…
