Believing I can...

Yesterday I woke up feeling very positive about this journey. I am liking the way I look in the mirror. I have more energy and my skin is clear. After thinking back on vacation and the good choices I was able to make regarding food and exercise, I had an overwhelming feeling.

Success. I actually looked in the mirror and felt it.

I can and will reach my goal weight. I will actually get there this time. 

I feel like I am re-learning how to eat. Low carb is working for me. I still struggle with WANTING sweets and processed food. But I can say no... It's not compulsive anymore. 

I know I am a food addict. It's something I will always have to deal with. My relationship with food is very dysfunctional and I will always have to be careful with my choices.

But it's possible. I can see that now. I just have to say consistent and make this a lifestyle change.

I am still enjoying my Personal Trainer Food. A few have been hating on my choice to do that plan... But it's working for ME. And I am VERY happy with the convenience it offers. Yes, it's totally possible for me to cook the same healthy meals. But FOR RIGHT NOW, it's worth it for me to go with this option. 

My best friend and several others have also decided to order and are also loving the food. It's definitely worth the investment if you need meal options that are quick and healthy, and you don't have the time to meal prep.

And let me also say this... I don't get paid to endorse this plan. EVERYONE who orders gets a link for a $50 off referral coupon. Yes, if you order through the website, I would LOVE for you to use my link. It's $50 off for both of us.

But you can also get an even better deal through Groupon and Amazon Local. Just search for 'personal trainer food'.

I always blog about MY experiences on MY journey. And right now, this food is part of my journey and it's been great for me. Why wouldn't I share about something that might potentially help someone else who is struggling like me?

I appreciate every single person who reads my blog and supports me on my journey. I've been on a very public rollercoaster ride on here since 2008 and I have learned so much. I may not be at my goal weight, but I will get there one day because I refuse to stop trying.



  1. Hey Hollie. I follow a lot of blogs and kind of write one as well. It's for me to be able to get out what I'm thinking and feeling and put it into words. Sometimes readers need to remember that bloggers are not there for our entertainment or criticism but for their own journey. Keep up the good work and do what ever works for you.

  2. Your making awesome progress with the low carb. It's people like you and me who crave sugar and carbs who benefit the most from low carb. I agree that convenience is key in weight loss and if you can afford it then wonderful! I wish I could afford it. I started Atkins Induction Oct 8th after seeing your progress in so little time on the low carb foods. Good job! We will get there no matter how long it takes. The time will pass no matter what so why not continue to improve yourself along the way?

  3. You are doing great, dear.. Must appreciate your efforts. Taking low carb diet help in weight loss as well as reduce risk factors related to metabolic syndrome.
