I have rejoined the gym for 90 days. I wasn't able to afford a 3-year membership, but hopefully will in 2008. I have been going and it has been helping with my energy and mood swings! I am much happier and I love my hip hop class on Tuesday nights! I went to Zumba last night, but we had a sub and she was not a fun teacher. I hope we get the regular instructor back next week.
I want this weight to finally come off for once and for all. I need to go to the grocery store as well tonight because I have no food in the house! I need to start drinking my water also.
On an emotional note, I am still very committed to the fact that I am much happier when I am on a healthy eating plan. I think it might be because I am striving for something. I like to have goals and I like to have accomplishments so this works well for me. I am aiming to hit my 20 lbs by the end of this month. I have about 4 lbs to go. I know that might not seem like a lot, but it is hard to keep things up during the holidays and work has been hectic. However, I am not going to let that deter me from my path. I cannot and I will not. Determination is on my side!
Good luck to you all! I know you don't need it, but just in case!

I just thought about my whole issue with weight loss and it seems that it is this never ending battle. But, when I actually thought about it...It is a battle that I "start" to fight and then for some reason I raise the white flag and surrender. I read something today, it was a story about surrendering the negativity in your life. By doing so, the author states that the positive energy will be allowed to flow back into your life. It's funny because that's what I was feeling as I started to lose weight.
The last two weeks have been pivotal for me. I have been on my own plan, not Core. I have been eating, not eating, counting points, choosing Core foods. It has been a mess. I have to weigh in tomorrow and I know that I am going to gain at least 4 pounds. I allowed myself to go out, have drinks and eat at 2am in the morning twice since my last weigh in. Unless I have been strict and exercising the heck out of myself, then I would have had a chance at maintaining. But, wasn't doing this and I know better.
I got on the scale this morning and it read 209. My scale is under by about 2 lbs. So that means that I am at roughly 211. My last weigh-in was at 206.6. If you are doing the math with me, I have gained 4.4. So, I know this but I want to stay positive. I will go to my meeting tomorrow and use my No-weigh pass. If I get the courage up, I will face the scale.
I digress. I was saying that my armor is back on. I don't mean this in a bad way. What I am simply saying is that my so called armor is really my resources (my Core plan, Core foods, knowledge of activity, healthy planning and actually exercising). I wear my armor when I am on track. It's off when I fall back into my old habits and I end up losing all that I was striving for. The good thing is this armor can be put on again. With that said...
It's time. And I am suited up once again ladies and gentleman!
Good luck to you all!

I went to a wedding reception on Friday, a day before my weigh-in. I had fruit and a taco. I skipped the cake, but I did have a few cocktails. I also danced and danced and danced! It was so much fun, I felt like I was 16 again.
I got on the scale on Saturday morning feeling a little guilty about my choice in alcohol the previous night. However, I LOST 3 lbs! I was so excited and I have not been at 206.6 for about a year or so. I am so close to hitting below the 200 mark, I can taste it! I just had to share my little experience because it meant so much to me!
Have a great week!

I was doing so well and somehow, this weekend took me off my new path of healthiness. I am back on track, but I still feel bad about it. I suppose that is a good think in retrospect. At least I know the value of what I was doing for myself. I am working on making this body better and changing my attitude. I know I will hit bumps along the road and I am just a little fearful that I will allow myself to fall into my old habits.
It's very tough when you feel like you are on the edge of disaster. I am at about 15 pounds. This is always where I seem to sabotage myself on WW. I have not made it past the 15 pound mark in my life. I want to now. I just need to stay focused and start exercising.
I will make this promise to me -- No matter what happens, I am required to go to my meetings until January 1, 2008. This will make me accountable for all of my choices. I also MUST weigh-in. No using those "free passes."
Good luck to you all as we struggle in the challenge together!
