I lost quite a bit of weight early in 2010 and three years later I have gained it all back plus some. I did good for a few months after I stopped counting calories but then life got in the way and I stopped working out as well. I am getting back on the train and working towards changing some very unhealthy habits I have picked back up. Other than trying to lose weight, I enjoy a LOT of hobbies including sewing, reading, knitting, quilting and blogging. You can read my sewing blog Musings of a Seamstress at

Since I am starting over with my weight loss journey I am also starting over with my mini goals. I am going to keep my original completed dates as a reminder of how far I had previously come in hopes that it will keep me motivated. I have also added a few other goals since I am now heavier than I have ever been.

Mini Goals:
206 lbs = New sewing magazine
199 lbs = New jeans***Completed on 4/28/10***
185 lbs = New craft book***Completed on 7/21/10***
175 lbs = New shoes
165 lbs = New tattoo

Will someone please come kick me in the BUTT?!
You know I read the thread title and was all ready to provide some butt kicking motivation. And then I read your post! That changed everything! I eat pizza all the time! It is one of my favs! I just make sure I account for what I eat in my other food choices and exercise for the day! Don't beat yourself up over 2 slices. You are more likely to stick to your healthier lifestyle if you don't deny yourself everything all the time!

foods you had no idea where THAT bad!
My husband's Subway sandwich! It is almost, if not over 2000 calories. He gets the footlong meatball on Italian herb & cheese bread. Loads it with American, Provolon & Parmesan Cheeses. I love cheese like any sane human, but I do not need 4 different cheeses on my sandwich! He also adds the full fat mayo! He does load it with lots of veggies though, but it doesn't do him much good with all that freaking cheese.

Ranch Dressing
I like the idea of salsa and low fat. That sounds great. I will have to try that. For the time being I am eating regular ranch in lower quantity.

Ranch Dressing
The Kraft is what I have and I am not to fond of it. It's ok, but a little to tangy and thin for my taste.
