So I was totally off track for a few months there and my weight creeped up to 185.2. A friend of mine rejoined weight watchers and I since I love spend time with her, I joined up again too.
And I LOST 4 pounds in the first week!
I am now into my second week and will let you all know how it goes. My goal is to lose at least 10 pounds by Dec. 8 and another 3 - 5 by Christmas.
At our WW meeting we talked about making good choice and setting realistic goals over Christmas. In addition to Christmas, my husband and I are going to visit my inlaws over new years. So my goal is to maintain my weight from Dec. 23 - January 4. I will want to lose another 10 pounds by February 16 when I am going on a sunshine and beach vacation. I am so motivated to get back to my wedding weight by that vacation. So in total, I want to lose 20 - 25 pounds by mid-February.
Wish me luck!

Okay, so this monthly report will not be as detailed as the last two - mainly due to the fact that I only tracked my calories about about...ohhh...2 days in August. Yep - that's it. So let's just suffice it to say that I GAINED 3 pounds this month - and let me just say that I'm glad it wasn't 7! At least I don't have to start ALL over again.
However, I am getting back on track and I started a 10K training program and already I feel motivated, challenged and re-energized by having a fitness goal. This will take my activity level up a notch and I hope it will accelerate my weight loss through September and October.
I am leaving on vacation tomorrow where my husband and I are going to conquer as many roller coasters as we can in 6 days. That will be a blast. My plan for the week is to ask the hotel to clear out our mini-bar so I can stock it with things for breakfast and brown-bag lunches to bring to the theme parks. This will help us to stay on budget and will cut out many, many calories. We do plan to go out for dinner almost every night and I will make efforts to order calorie-friendly meals, but I will probably give myself a little leeway since I'm on vacation and I don't want to feel deprived everytime I have to stare down a menu. I figure playing it safe on breakfast and lunch, I'll probably be okay - especially with all the walking and rollercoasters.
Also, we booked a hotel with a gym and a pool. I will work out or swim every morning before we head out to the rollercoasters :o). I made a pledge to myself that I will stick to my training schedule, which means running 6K three times while in Florida. I will report back to stay accountable. I will also be breaking my weigh-in once a month rule. I will weigh in when I get back from vacation to create a baseline for September's weightloss - also I wan't to be accountable for my performance on vacation. My goal is to maintain my current weight.

Crazy!!! So I played in a Ball Tournament for the August long weekend and it was totally fun. Because I was away with no internet, I couldn't track calories. Also, since I was staying with other people, I didn't always have control over food - plus there was the beer gardens - oh the alcohol. But I don't regret the weekend - there were some good choices, and some of holding myself back.
But since I've been back, I have had the toughest time getting back on track! There is temptation at every turn, and since I was away all weekend, planning my grocery list and all went out the window. Sigh. All excuses, I know. I need to make a plan and stick to it. I need to track my calories in and I need to exercise. Unfortunately, I am going away this weekend again and again there will be many landmines eating around family. I will get some water skiing in, and now I think about it, there is nothing stopping me from going for a jog on both Saturday and Sunday since my sister and brother-in-law sleep in on weekends. Okay, there's some control. Let's see if I can pull this trainwreak back on track.
