Tuesday Truths

Well, I guess today is the day.  Most of you probably don't know my "whole truth and nothing but the truth" story and if you want to know all about my struggle/obsession/history with food/weight/body image click here - that was the very first post I ever wrote on this blog.  The details are dirty, but I'm not ashamed of my past and I'm trying to just move forward with the here and now.  I don't want pitty or judgements, only encouragement - so here goes!

My first official weekly weigh in...ugh! I've dreaded it, but I've been super off track with my eating and I knew I had gained a few pounds.  Before I reveal the actual tonage poundage, I want to lay out some goals out for myself!

1. Lose 20 Pounds Before Norah Turns ONE - Norah's birthday is January 30th and my 30th birthday is on January 25th so I figured double whamy on this one!

2. Focus On Portion Control - Portion Control is most definitely my biggest struggle and I truly believe it stems from my eating disorder history.  From restricting, then binging and purging, now I feel I'm an overeater because my brain is still wired all effed up and thinks this may be the last meal it gets for 3 days so you better shovel it in...

3. Exercise Consistently - I decided not to put a number of days/week I'm going to "require" myself to exercise.  I'd like to shoot for 4-5 times a week, but sometimes life and work just doesn't allow for that.  This goal is to make a concious effort to MOVE.EVERY.SINGLE.DAY in some shape or form!

Week 1 Poundage - 179.4

There is it in black and white, wowza!  Let's get this show on the road! 


  1. Yes, let's get this damn show on the road. I have a similar post tomorrow. I quit Ripped in 30 and I have been eating my way into oblivion... gotta get back on track!

    Cheers to some fat leaving us!!

  2. I'm in this too ladies! You can do this Darci!Let's all start tomorrow and get hot by Christmas!

  3. I totally agree that the years spent binging and purge probably screwed us up mentally as to what portion control is. On Weight Watchers everything HAS to be portion controlled. It's been a good tool for me. You have some awesome goals. I know you'll reach them!
