Remember me?

 Wow! It has been a LONG time. Almost 3 years actually! How is that possible?

I let my domain expire and thought this part of my life was gone forever, but found myself trying to remember things from the past, or to find pictures, and this is where everything was documented so well for so many years. I finally figured out how to resurrect the blog at the original address. 

Some greedy person took over my domain and wants to sell it for over $4,000-- so that's not happening! But I've been thinking about blogging again. I want to keep all of this history, but begin something new. 

So much has happened over the last couple of years, or 6 1/2 years-- which seems to be when everything changed with the birth of our daughter! Some things remain constant-- my hubby and I are still married, we still live in Iowa (but at a new home!), and I still struggle with my weight (big surprise there huh?). 2020 has been a struggle, but overall we have more to be thankful for than anything else.

I'm curious to see if there's anyone out there who will see this post! Let me know you're here!

On my own

I'm giving the IIFYM thing a try on my own today. I had planned to go off on my own last week until the super-nice coach offered me a free month. But I've been reminded again this week why I wanted to go on my own.

I have this issue with accountability-- I get too stressed out about it and it messes with my head! It's better if I can just follow a plan on my own and I'm the only one who knows if I've messed up or not. Maybe I care too much about what other people think? Oh well.

The good news is that I feel excited to track and pick out my foods today, so that's good! 

Tracking my coffee creamer has once again reminded me of how many carbs I'm drinking in it! It's just one of those things that I don't want to give up because I enjoy it so much and miss it a lot when I don't have it. I'll just have to go easy on it. My coach actually told me that I can go ahead and enjoy my coffee and a latte or two each week, so that was working well. I don't think it's the coffee creamer and latte or two each week that has made me fat anyways-- maybe if I was only 10 lbs. overweight I'd believe that.

But anyways, wish me luck!
