You know you have to let it go when . . .

Okay, I’ve lost approximately 70 pounds since 2009 and have kept it off despite physical therapy, Kettle chip & Chick Fil A fries addictions, as well as not working out consistently for most of 2011.  I have donated boxes of clothes as well as shoes as I have lost 10 dress sizes and my feet … Continue reading

Hasta la vista my dear old friend . . . sniff, kettle chips!

After ending the 1 week fast from snacks e.g. chips, cookies, desserts, and other foods, I realized that I cannot eat my kettle chips.  Not too long after I finished munching on a handful of Dijon Kettle Brand kettle chips, I felt my eyelids start to droop.  The chips sent me into fat and carb … Continue reading
