So far so good

I have been away a while. August is going along fine. Slow and steady wins the race. Got that from a biggest loser. Forgot what season or who.

I have used a lot of mental helpers lately. All been working.

Cravings- “it’s only temporary”. I wrote it on my steering wheel. My cravings happen in certain parts of the city where I have to drive by.

For August- down 6 I think so far. A total of 25 since July 8.

Slow and steady.

A plateau. Broke it by carb loading.

I’m zumba queen! Go almost every night. Even with a bad knee.


Susan powter- “modify. Modify. Modify”. And I do. But I work it when i don’t have to modify! Sweat!!!

Inches going. Everything but my spandex is loose! Lol.

How are you?

What mental quotes or self talk do you use?


About Violet

I am a dreadlocked mom of a teen and a tot, originally from the east coast, now living in the really hot- most of the time- desert. I am a "used to be" story. I used to be happy, a cyclist, a 100lb loser, a 30-something, a practicing Buddhist, and an all aorund smart ass and go getter. I gained 70 pounds back, my knee issues caught up with me, I relished in fast food, stress, lost my enthusiasm, and became jaded. I hated everything. Grump, grump. Well... I woke up from this coma and decided to take control and share that journey with you. So, here's to my next 40 years... come along, and feel free to dish it and keep me in check. I can take it! :)
