Coming "Clean"

Two eighty-five. That is the number that appeared on my scale this morning. There. I said it. Well, I typed it. Same difference. I have been too ashamed to say it to anyone. I'm telling it here because I want to make this the first step in my new clean lifestyle. My thinking is if I see it on my blog I'll be more motivated to get and stay serious. This is more important to me right now than anything. It's time I realized I am important enough to take care of like I take care of the other people in my life that are important to me.

I've been reading my books and planning my menu and am ready to step up to the mirror and get my life back.

Today I'll be going shopping for groceries. Good food. Lots of fresh veggies and fruit. I am excited to get back to losing. Seriously!
And now for something completely different!! I was reading Cara's blog and found out about this really cool contest. I do love a contest!

I entered the Mary Lou's Weigh Platform Giveaway!

Check out Roni’s Weight Loss Blog for more information. This thing is just what a scale junkie needs!!


  1. Be sure and keep us posted on how the eating clean goes. I'm trying to move toward that concept/goal, but I'm not ready to go cold turkey.

  2. Hi Tena, thanks for popping by my blog. And I must say, a beautiful 285lbs you are!!! I started out at pretty fine 254.6lbs and am a pretty fine but healthier 176.2lbs now.

    With patience and persistence, you can do it. Celebrate ever loss - no matter how much, celebrate every maintain - no matter for how many weeks, and move on from every gain - no matter how large. I'll add your blog to my list so I can keep up with your updates. :)

  3. Hi Tena, I started at 286 lbs. You're NOT alone or being judged :)
    We love you NOW!
    You know that I LUV, LUV, LUV eating clean & I truly believe you'll find the success you're looking for with this eating plan.
    BTW, I stopped looking for dating opportunities for now...better to focus on improving myself first :)
