So yesterday went well, despite the fact that my day got side tracked and I had to make a trip out to the office. I stayed OP! That is a huge victory for me right now because it has been (truly) months since I have had a successful day OP. I did have a little bit of a weak moment last night. I had left over Danish Butter Cookies sitting in my house, calling for me. I know that this first week is more about detoxing my body from all the processes and sugared foods, so my craving will be strongest.
It was not a problem though. I had what I wanted and I counted the points. Before I put the first cookie in my mouth, I looked at the label and made a more educated decision. I knew that if I did not eat it right then, allowing for the points, that I may be out of control today.
Happily, I am in full control today. I am awaiting the UPS man and hoping that he comes before 10:30 so I can go to my Turbo Kick Boxing class at 11am. If he does not come by then, I will do laundry (I have to walk down and then up 3 flights of stairs to get to the laundry room). Unfortunately, I am house bound until he gets here.
Here is to another good day!

As you know, I started back at WW today and the scale has given me some. "feedback." I am up about 10 pounds from my lowest weight back in August. In a matter of a mere few months, I have gained half of what I had lost. I know that this is something that I am going to have to focus on daily and I now have proof of the consequences.
So I am back up to 216.2. From a positive perspective, I have kept off about 10 pounds or so. I have a new leader, he is a bit odd but I think that his true intention is to help us get to our goal. He is very focused on helping us and I know that is something that I need. Also, since the meeting is on Friday morning, there are only like 5 people. This may actually be of real value to me because I will have more personalized meetings.
I am excited for this week and I want to do well. I am not going to weigh myself again this week. That is my goal. I have chosen this goal because I tend to judge how my day, my food choices and my attitude will be based upon the number on the scale. So, if I am up a pound, I will do poorly and if I am down a pound I have a tendancy to "reward" myself for being so good.
This year it is really going to be about the emotions driving my eating. I will be in control and I will lose this weight.

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!
