Yes, I can do this, and no, I am not about to give up at this point in my life. Better to keep trying than allowing myself to give up and gain back all the weight I have lost - plus more.
I can do this, and I will do this. Back to Weight Watchers, and this time, no goofing off, and tracking. That's the way to do it. I am determined to lose at least 20 pounds by summer.

It sounds like an admonition, but it isn't. It is actually a realization that I need to be on the path, no matter how many times I fall off. It is not about fitting in those skinny jeans (though that would be nice), it is about being healthy and able to do all I want to do in this life.
So, I am one month in to my commitment to myself. I joined Curves, and found my niche. I enjoy exercising there. The trainers really encourage me, and everyone there seems to be in this same place as I am-- giving it there all.
I also decided to open my mind and give Weight Watchers another shot. So, far so good, I found a session with a leader who is a good motivator.
All this makes me feel I am once again doing things that are in my own best interest. As Willie Nelson sings, "I am on the road again!"

It is July 4th and, yes, I am planning to go to gym and work with trainer this morning. I signed up for program three weeks ago, and I keep pushing off returning to the place. Everything else that is going on in life gives me an excuse to cancel my appointment.
I need to not talk myself out of taking care of myself. Why do we do that? In the end It causes more regrets than getting myself in gear and doing it.
Nothing like being out of shape to make you feel bizillion years old. Must put an end to that feeling!

So once again what took me almost a year to lose has crept back on in a matter of five months. Losing weight is difficult, yes, but the struggle is keeping it off. Millions of dieters out there, millions of books are available, but the ultimate goal is keeping the weight off.
I am so disillusioned with diets and the struggle. I haven't given up, but want I really want is to be healthy, eat reasonably well and keep the weight off. I literally started Weight Watchers in December, and packed on 30 pounds. That point system does not work for me -- may work for Jennifer Hudson, but calculating points is an added chore. Jenny Craig is an easy way to lose weight (no chores), however, I cannot eat boxed meals for the rest of my life.
My new plan is to follow the old Weight Watcher plan of so many proteins, so many breads, so many fats, and start exercising again (I wish I loved exercise but I don't).
It's a struggle but I am determined to figure it out.
