Need to get unstuck..


You have failed only when you quit trying. Until then, you're still in the act of progression. So, never quit trying and you'll never be a failure.---Tommy Kelley

This week has been a little tough for me. I am feeling stuck and I don't know how to get unstuck. I have been watching what i've been eating and doing the 2week mamavation challenge and adding EA Sports Active Game on Wii. What am i doing wrong?? My scale has not moved an inch. Not gaining any is a plus but not losing any is quite defeating. I am irritated a little but i'm trying not to let it get me down. Hearing my kids tell me that i'm getting skinnier and my "pouch" of a tummy is getting smaller is a plus. Though I am a little discourage this week again I am going to "Suck it up" and keep forging ahead.


How does your family support your weight loss efforts?

My family is very supportive. They tell me positive things about how I am looking. My kids have learned from school the good and the bad habits of what to eat so that helps around the house. They actually have a system. It's Called a stop light. GO (Green) Whoa (Yellow) and Slow (Red) Foods. GO foods are foods we eat almost anytime. SLOW foods are foods we eat sometimes or less often. WHOA foods are foods we eat on special occasions or once in awhile. It does help for them to know what i should and shouldn't eat and it helps them to so that they can eat healthy.

 I’m writing this to be entered into a giveaway hosted by Mamavation – a community dedicated to obesity prevention & weight loss for women”.


  1. I love that stop light idea. I need that on my fridge. Not having the scale go anywhere is frustrating. I find, for myself, that eating ice cream and stuff from the red section a few days can get me past a plateau. Kind of shaking my system up. The other thing I noticed that helped was my first week as mamavation mom was pushing to get 4 miles in every single day on top of my 2 week challenge. Good luck, keep your chin up, you are doing awesome!

  2. 4 miles a day on top of the challenge would do it, I think!
    Keep up the good work, Sista. It will all come together.

  3. thanks guys i'll keep the 4miles in mind. I do also the daily goal of 10,000 steps each day. crossing my fingers i get unstuck. :)

  4. Family is a big motivator (if they want to be one) And I am very happy to hear that your kids got a system with food. Love it

  5. I love that your kiddos are in on this journey with you, and the stop light system is adorable! Maybe if you're plateauing, try something different. Maybe squeeze in some Zumba or some interval training (jog 1 min, walk 1 min, repeat for 20 mins)?

  6. So proud of the kids for knowing which foods they can have!!

    I know you will get over this plateau:)
