I Don’t Want To Be A Weight Loss Blogger

I don’t want to be defined as a weight loss blogger anymore.

Do I still want to lose weight? Yes. Do I know I will? Yes. I’m determined to see that final, goal weight, awesome number on the scale, and I know I will get there.

As much as I want all of that, I know that blogging about it is putting too much pressure on myself. The pressure is not motivating to me, it’s paralyzing.

LWI on Life

I know that this isn’t the case for some people, but I know myself well enough to know that this is the case for me.

Does that mean I want to stop blogging? Heck to the no. Did you see the beautiful new face lift that Lindsay Weighs In just got?! Yeah, I’m not going anywhere.

I thought about changing the name of this blog, but I love the name. I love the history that the name and I have, and I love all of my life that is stored in this little space.

So from now on, it’s still Lindsay Weighs In, but it’s no longer going to be about weighing in on the scale. Instead, it’s going to be weighing in about life. About finding a balance between healthy living and living, and sharing with you all what I found out along the way.

Is anything going to change around here? Not really! I’ve never felt that I fit into any specific niche and that used to bother me, but not anymore. I’m still going to be blabbing on this space about whatever comes to mind, same as I always have. I’m just taking the pressure off of myself to lose weight “for the blog.” That’s just silly. I’ve been thinking about this for some time now, and I’m ready to share this with you all.

Instead, I want to lose weight for myself. For my future children. For my future self. Not so that I can document my journey on the blog. I’ll save that for my memoir some day. 😉

Weekend Happenings

Hello and Happy Monday! How was your weekend?

weekend happenings

It took me a solid 10 minutes of writing this post to figure out what the heck I did on Friday. If that’s not a sure sign that it’s a Monday (and I need a weekend to recover from my weekend!) I don’t know what is.

J & I watched my Mama’s dog this weekend, so we headed over there after having dinner at J’s parent’s house.


She was just a little excited to see us!

We took her to the baseball game on Saturday, and she was obsessed with all the new smells and people to play with. We were laughing so hard at all the stuff we packed to take with us in case she needed anything. We are so going to be those parents some day. I kept thinking about that scene in Full House after the twins are born and Jesse and Becky take everything they own with them on their first trip out with the kids. I can’t find an image for you all, so you’ll just have to trust me on this one!


How stinkin’ cute does he look with a puppy? Imma need you all to leave comments in that respect so I can talk him into getting a dog. Kidding…. maybe. 😉

Puppachino Aftermath

She LOVED that puppachino… holy guacamole. Haha!

I tried to stay up for the Target + Lilly launch Saturday into Sunday online, but was unsuccessful. I woke up at 6:30 to broken website and unable to put anything in my cart.

So, I did what any sane, college educated girl would do and woke J up and asked him if he would go to Target with me. #thatmanisasaint

I picked up a few things that I wanted (yay for my birthday coinciding with the launch!) and am rocking the headband today.


My thoughts on the launch? People are crazy and I have never seen so many people in such a small area reaching for stuff and being ruthless. I’m too nice for such events and kept apologizing and saying excuse me. Also, I wish they would have put the plus size items in the store (seriously… why would you make it an online exclusive when you’ve seen how the public has reacted previously to such events!?) and thought it was kind of bizarre that they didn’t. Oh well, more motivation to lose weight and fit into a dress from a Lilly store.


I’m obsessed with that Pineapple bowl (and it was the one item I really really wanted), and J scored the very last one in our store. I’ll say it again, that man is a saint.

It was a fabulous, busy weekend where I got barely any of the house chores done I wanted to, but it’s all good. The mess will always still be there, right?! I’d rather be out spending time with my boo and living my life. <– life lessons.

What did you all do this weekend? If you need me, I’ll be stalking the Lilly returns at my local Target this week. 😉
