Another Fresh Start

I am OH! so tired of saying, "I'm back, and starting over", but it's the truth, so I guess I just said it.

Friday night I took a trip to Dallas with my dear friend, Ashley for the Biggest Loser Season 14 auditions.  What an incredible experience.  We knew the chances of being selected were near impossible, but we had a wonderful time and met some amazing people - including season 13's Mark and Chism, and season 12's Becky! What an inspiration.

It's really hard to admit that since the last time I posted I've gained weight and am now up to 311 lbs.  Most of that gain has been a result of bad habits caused by my stint working night shift in a high stress environment,   but I can't lay blame on circumstances. I knew what to do, and just chose not to.  So there I am, second from the right.... a whopping 311 lbs.  Just insane. I NEVER dreamed I'd ever get this big.  

I've decided to do things a little different this time.  I cancelled my weight watchers subscription, and purchased a Body Bugg with a 12 month subscription.  I'm hoping that counting calories and keeping track of actual calories in and calories out will make things more realistic for me.  I can't wait for my body bugg to get here! I'll let you know when that happens.  

So today will be spent planning for the week.  Hopefully I can come up with a decent plan and begin the journey on a good note!  


  1. Hey Amy! I am going to follow your blog! Regarding your calorie counting, get a food scale. I actually have The Biggest Loser food scale. Weigh everything. Don't guess, and don't use measuring cups or spoons - we food addicts have a way of stuffing cups and spoons and deceiving ourselves. Weighing the food keeps it accurate and simple.

    You can do this! I will be cheering you on while taking my own journey. I am 252 pounds, down from 260 and I never thought I'd be there either!


  2. You know it. I use my weight watchers scale. It's hard to cheat when you weigh everything lol. It's always great having the support of friends who are fighting the same battle! Thanks for coming!
