Ok, so it's been almost a month since I blogged last and I said I was getting on track then, but sadly it didn't happen yet so here we go again...
I have two older sisters, one that is about 3 years older than me, another that is about 6 years older than me. The one who is 3 yrs older joined Weight Watchers in March and is now down about 25 pounds. She started her journey approximately where I am now, around 170. My sis that is 6 yrs older than me is using my other sisters books/guides for the program and has also lost some weight... probably about 15-20 pounds which puts her around 170 currently. This means I have to get my butt in gear! Growing up, I was always the fat sister, then I lost weight and was the skinny sister for a while (even in the beginning of this year!) but now I'm rapidly almost the fattest again! So no more. If her and I are the same weight, it is DEFINITELY time for me to get going! I've been "trying" since the beginning of September and am having some success but my problem is this: I am only about 80% committed. I know this. And as we all know, if you aren't at 100%, you have a tendency to do the yo-yo thing and I am tired of that! So as of today, I'm down from 181.0 on 9/7/11 to 171.6, which is 9.4 pounds in about 4 weeks. Not too shabby but I know it hasn't been with fully healthy habits (some days I still binge, others I eat way too little and I have yet to incorporate exercise) so today I am pledging to get myself to get on track with ALL of my goals. It's been a work in progress he last 2 months trying to get myself back on the wagon and it's time to take the plunge. I can and WILL do this! (of course anyone who would like to offer me extra words of support and motivation would be MUCH appreciated!) Thanks for reading my blog! :)

Ok, so I've technically been a member of SP since October 23, 2006. In that time, I've gone way down and then up a bit, then down again and up again. I now know all the tricks and tools to get me to where I need to be, my problem is just doing it. I know I need to stay in my calorie range. I know I need to drink plenty of water. I know I need to get in at least 3 workouts a week. I know I need to get to work on time. I know all these things... yet I continue to fail. I'm never on time to work. I never drink enough water. I rarely stay in my calorie range. What is this thing called a workout? Ha. I may joke about this, but it's not really funny. It's time to change. It's time to stick with "my program" and make myself over! Just since December 2010, I have gained about 15-20 pounds. No bueno. I am ridiculously depressed over what I accomplished and then let slip so easily through my fingers.
Time to get out of the funk! Time to really get on the wagon! I've been working on fully finding that wagon again and it's just not quite there. I tried eating "organic" for a week (kept out carbs, cheese and meat), meanwhile trying to drink more water. Day after day ends in total chaos. I do well during the day with most things... then get home and it all just flies right out the window! What is wrong with me? Why do I do so well throughout the day and then just give in at night? I honestly have no answer to this, but I do know I want to change and I am the only person responsible for that!
Today is September 7, 2011 and it is the first day of the rest of my life! I am currently on track with my food and my water. The only way to start a streak is to do it a day at a time. So here's to DAY ONE! I can and WILL do this!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So today is my three year anniversary with SP!!! I may not have met my goal quite yet, but I am STILL working toward it! To date, I have lost 68 lbs and only REALLY have another 9 or so to go! Honestly, my motto for this year is "139 in 2009!" and I Still plan on making that happen!!! It's only 5 lbs for me to get there! Anyway, I just LOVE SP and without it I KNOW I wouldn't have had this much success. I am a MUCH happier person now!! Thank you SP!!!!!

Well, after a LONG weekend in San Diego, I'm finally below 160! This is due to a few things... first we walked everywhere since we stayed downtown and that was AWESOME! Second, I've been having a hard time with WANTING food at all. Most thought of eating just kinda turns my stomach, plus, my stomach itself has been quite finicky as of late. I'm still force feeding myself, but I'm thinking it's time to see a doctor... I'm tired of feeling this way! Although, if it's keeping me from over consumption, I have a hard time thinking it's ALL bad. HAHA!
