Getting Back on the Wagon

Hello - My name is Karen. I have been struggling with my weight all my life. I loved fast food, watching television & movies and sleeping - and this is how I ended up weighing 336 pounds.

In November of 2005 I joined Weight Watchers and in the spring of 2008 I was down to 180 pounds. A loss of 150 pounds !!!!

Then in October of 2008 I moved cities and starting living with my boyfriend. My new job had different hours - and I was no longer at the gym every morning. ...
Hello - My name is Karen. I have been struggling with my weight all my life. I loved fast food, watching television & movies and sleeping - and this is how I ended up weighing 336 pounds.

In November of 2005 I joined Weight Watchers and in the spring of 2008 I was down to 180 pounds. A loss of 150 pounds !!!!

Then in October of 2008 I moved cities and starting living with my boyfriend. My new job had different hours - and I was no longer at the gym every morning. I stopped attending WW meetings, and just ate whatever I wanted. Slowly - I managed to gain back almost all of the weight. I weighed 323 pounds at my highest, only 13 pounds less than my original weight.

I got engaged, then married, and then in the summer of 2012 everything in my relationship started to fall apart.

In November 2012 I started back with WW, for good this time. I weighed in at 314 pounds.

I separated from my husband, moved back to Edmonton, and am on my way to being a better me - including losing weight and getting healthy.

Determination and perseverance will result in my reaching my goals !!

Every day is a new beginning: A day to say 'yes' instead of 'no'. A day to choose a smile, to choose light, to choose love. Every day is a new beginning, a new gift we get to do what we want with. What will you do with your day?

“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year.
He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

Finish every day and be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanks! It seems that writing down my food really helped me spot this. I still track on here, especialy since I have so much already saved and it will do the math for me. In my paper journal I've been writing down each meal's calories, carbs, fat and protein. Breaking it up and writing it down like that reinforced the disparity more so than just plugging everything into a computer. Isn't it interesting what works and doesn't for all of us. Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!
