Do you have an anchor?
Throughout my weight loss and fitness journey I had anchors. It was something that I could look at that would remind me of WHY I started this whole transformation in the first place. One of my "big" anchors is my Weight Watchers key chain and all the "tokens" that I earned for a specific amount of weight lost. I earned the key chain for 10% of my body weight lost, and then the disc's are for 25lb, 50lb, 75lb, 100lb, etc...lost.
But wait...there's more
I earned the star when I hit my goal weight. I earned the keys for maintaining my weight loss. I had a LOT more on the key ring, but they've fallen off over the years. Oh and the 16 hand clapping means that I attended 16 consecutive paid meetings. Again, I had a lot more clapping hands, but they fell off. Weight Watchers would replace them at no charge, but I think I have enough stuff on my key ring.
Today I am giving YOU a chance to win your very own ANCHOR!! It's a beautiful bracelet from Fierce Forward. You will win the PURPOSE bracelet, like the one shown here:
Having the ability to wear your anchor on your wrist is so empowering!! I've been wearing the "Less Sugar" bracelet from Fierce Forward (along with my Autism Speaks bracelet) and it's been so nice to see it while I am working out. It's become an anchor for me, and I LOVE it.

I've been talking to a lot of people lately about the choices I had to make when I first started on my weight loss and fitness journey. People are so curious how I managed to lose 212lbs and be able to keep it off for 2 years, and counting!
Here's my trick. I continue to learn, to tweak, to improve. There is NO one way to do something. We all need to keep growing, keep seeking, keep learning.
I can help you, just ask. But realize that what worked for ME, might not be the right choice for YOU.... [More]

Is it already the start of week 4? I was talking to my husband and kids last night and they were shocked to learn that I haven't had ketchup in 20 days. I LOVE ketchup. Seriously. I love it on eggs, chicken, pretty much if anything can be dipped in a condiment, I'm dipping it in ketchup. I've been this way since I was a little girl and without a doubt this has been the longest I've ever gone without my beloved ketchup.
When we were in New York City they had a piece of ketchup artwork and I ha... [More]
