I'm now back on the Weight Watcher Wagon

I rejoined WW today.  UGh, I've been in such a bad place, I just had to do something to try and regain control.  It bums me out that I'm not able to do it on my own...for free.  But I'm needing help right now.  I fell off the weight loss/fitness wagon in the summer and never could get back on.  I tried to get the gained weight off...but it didn't come off and other pounds have crept back on.  So here I am....a Weight Watcher once again.

The last 6 months have been stressful and challenging.  I've not made a lot of time for myself....which is never a good thing.  Put that with a hubby gone most days of the week and dealing with some issues with my little was just easier for me to not do anything.  Well, anything except EAT!  and I did!

So, Tuesday a.m. is  my meeting day.  I think that time will be perfect and MY time.  My meeting looks like a nice group of people. Nearly all of the 2 dozen people were over 60.  I participated in the discussion a bit and they were very supportive.  The leader seemed wonderful, too.  We spoke at length to go over the new program and she really seemed like she wanted to see me succeed.  I opened up with her about my stress and even cried. Dammit I'm such a blubber-er . lol

Day 1 in the books....I tracked my food AND rode the bike for a bit.

checking in from "out of the zone"

I'm so out of my program, in vacation much the opposite of "in the zone".  I need bringing back....back to healthful eating, back to intentional exercise every day, back to well just taking care of me and taking time for myself to do the RIGHT things for a healthier life.  I am the only one that can do this.  Need to tune the positive self-talk that carried me through the past year without fail.  I've lost it.....can't find it....NEED IT DESPERATELY!!!!

Damn Blogger

So, I'm supposed to be converting my blog or it's going to be GONE...poof...deleted.  I really don't want to start over.  Waiting to hear back from the Google/Blogger gods to see how to do this.

Friggin Cake....grrr

Okay so I  had a house party last night....Demarle @ Home.  Love the products and of course we had food.  This incredible cake was made....yellow cake, my fave.  Then we topped it with a chocolate ganache.  Well my guests enjoyed it and there was some left.  Well....not anymore.  I ate it.  Now last night after the guests left, I thought "hmm, I should toss this...."  but I  hate to waste food.  No....apparently I would much rather WAIST it.

WTH am I doing?  It is scary to lose control like that.  I told myself, hey you're not going to gain back those 55 lbs you lost, don't worry about it....move on.  But, that's  not the best attitude.  Sweets are a big time Red Light food for me. "you can't eat just one" for sure

I got in over an hour of stat I'm feeling better about it, but still.  UGH!!!

2nd Paleo weigh-in

...and I'm down 3.8 !!!!  I normally intend to weigh in on Mondays, but with ham-fest on Sunday, I wanted to get the sodium out of my system.  I'm thrilled that my hard work and dedication is paying off.  1.4 lbs til my 20% goal....very do-able!  Oh and I've lost 11 lbs in 3 weeks.  This is just the jump (re) start I needed!

Phew, glad Easter has past!

I love EASTER, but let me tell you the yummy temptations that come with the holiday pain me.  I did super all last week...filling dozens of eggs without a nibble.  Then, when I came to doing the boys' baskets, I started in with the jelly beans.  WHY???  You know once you start you cannot stop. I finally told myself, hey, you have 24 hrs, enjoy the food, but don't go crazy.  So I did.  I had my first sweets, starches, sugar in over 2 weeks.  It all was delicious, but you know what... I felt like a slug.  We still have candy in the house, but I'm back in the zone. I portioned out the last of the chocolate pie for my boys....and didn't even lick the knife or grab a crumb of homemade cookie crust.  Yes, I am back!

I'm on a mission.  I am rarin' to go....on down the scale.  So excited about my next goals....reaching 20% of weight loss (a WW milestone that I love), getting to lower than I remember being recently, and then finally.....under 200.  I'm a planner....these mini-goals are my plan.  It's like I've got the GPS programmed for my weight loss journey.  I really want to be to ONEDERLAND by my birthday in Sept.  Buuuut, first things, first.  My new ticker is counting down to my next mini-goal....20% off. (no, not a sale, lmao)
