Stuck for 2 weeks

Monday, November 01, 2010

I'm stuck in the same spot for 2 weeks- even crept up a pound again:-( I know it's time to start working in more exercise, but I'm not looking forward to it. Had a good talk with my best friend and her sister in law who are tackling this too- in fact friend's sister in law has reached her goal!!! Yea for her- she looks just fabulous. She said maybe I'm not eating enough- I'm sticking right to my WW points every day for the most part, and she said that I should try mixing it up a bit- I almost never use my flex points, and she said I should try doing that, because maybe my body is getting too used to what I'm doing, and I need to fool it. It's worth a try I guess, so as of 2 days ago, I'm giving that a try. We'll see how it goes.

    Well, maybe my friends had something with the whole "eat all your points and all your flex points too" theory, because I got on the scale this morning, and I had finally lost the next stubborn pound! Here I thought I was being so good- sticking exactly to my daily points and only using some of my 35 flex points every week. It was way awesome to eat more...and then lose again. Gotta love the advice and experience of other successful people. I only had a chance to go on 2 short walks since then too. I know it's just one pound, but it was one pound that has been haunting me for 3 weeks altogether now.

New Picture

Wednesday, October 20, 2010

Finally posting a recent picture. This is September 2010- had my son's senior pictures taken this day along with some new family shots:) This was also 7 pounds heavier ago.


Another 5 pounds!

Monday, October 18, 2010

Down 25 pounds! Had lunch with a girlfriend over the weekend who is on this journey with me, and we had the best time. She looks so great; we are both plugging along cheering for each other all the way. It makes it so much easier when you have someone to be accountable to.....and someone who supports you all the way! I realized I am halfway to my first BIG goal too. I try not to focus too much on the bigger goals though, because I'm afraid it will seem too daunting when I'm having a not so strong day or a super stressful day. I still haven't had time to post a new picture. That's still on my to do list:)


Excited about my weight loss

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

Just a few ounces away from a 20 pound loss! It's slow going, but definitely worth it! I did get involved in a small group mid-July, and we are following Weight Watchers Point system. It's definitely working for me. The new school year has been busy, but I've been having no trouble staying on track. I'm really proud of my hard work. I am looking forward to continued progress:) It feels great to be more comfortable in my own skin. I keep thinking I need some new pictures of me, so I can track the visual changes. I should do that soon.

Starting Over...Again

Tuesday, May 25, 2010

I have been falling further behind for almost two years now. I just read my last blog (from two years ago) , and I was so proud of myself for falling under 200 pounds.....and here I am...almost 250 again. One of my friends approached me about joining Weight Watchers with her and another friend, and I really need the support, so I'm thinking about doing it. In the meantime, here's a good place to start holding myself accountable for turning that corner to being kinder to myself again. Here we go. This picture was taken on Mother's Day 2010.

    Thank you.....I don't know how many times I have done this to myself. It gets so frustrating and depressing. Thanks for the support.
