In January 2013 I finally woke up and started watching my diet. I didn’t lose more than 5-10 pounds, but the biggest thing was that for the first time in forever…I maintained. And then in May 2013 I got serious and joined Weight Watchers. The next 30 pounds seemed to melt off and I was so frustrated with myself for not having done something before that point.
With WW it was so easy for me. And then (we all knew that was coming, didn’t we?), we went on vacation in October of 2013 and well, I just had to finish all of those snacks that we took on our trip because if I didn’t it would be a waste of money, right? And then Thanksgiving, my husbands birthday, Christmas, New Years, and our anniversary in March came…and went.
Now here I am in February 2015. Yes, I am 40 pounds lighter, but still overweight. I still have about 70-80 pounds to go. And it’s time to take this seriously. I have low back pain, migraines, and other medical problems that would resolve or improve greatly with weight loss.
So, I’m LOSING IT. I am determined and hope to track my progress on here. I am tired of not liking what I see in the mirror. Tired of feeling guilty for enjoying an ice cream cone or a second helping at dinner. I’m also tired all of the excuses that I feed myself (pun intended ;).
Time to start tracking my points. Weigh in weekly. Clean out the junk food in my cupboards and get serious!
