I'm at a new all-time high weight. Yes, even higher than the previous two from a few weeks ago. Just a couple of pounds higher, but still. I've been doing a lot of thinking over the past few weeks...few months, really. I've been thinking about things I need to either let go of or hold on to...thinking about things that are either working or not working for me. I've been meeting every other week with my SIL...we started a little weight-loss group, just the two of us...it's just a little support group. Anyway, tomorrow is our final meeting of the year, and we're going to be talking about changes we want to make in the coming year. One thing I have decided to change, is that I have decided to stop being a vegetarian. I've been a vegetarian/vegan for two years now, and it's just not working for me. I plan to still eat lots of vegetarian foods, however, but I no longer want to be solely vegetarian. For one thing, I've gained about 25 pounds since becoming vegetarian...Husband has, too. I am also incredibly bored with my food options, what I cook, etc. My whole family is just bored with it. The most success I ever had was a few years ago when I was doing South Beach Diet. In fact, I had GREAT success with that! The only "problem" I had with it was that I quit. I also NEED to make myself go to the gym. I have a membership to this wonderful gym that I never go to. I've got to make that a priority. I make my bed every day, brush my teeth, keep my hair and clothes clean, etc. Going to the gym needs to be just as much of a priority as those things are. Husband and I can hold ourselves accountable for going to the gym, and SIL and I can hold ourselves accountable for that and everything else, too. I also want to be better at holding myself accountable. I even invited Husband to join us at our meetings. He actually said he'd think about it. I figured he wouldn't want to, but I'm glad I extended an invitation to him. I wouldn't want him to not be getting the support he felt like he needed.
Anyway...that's really all for now. I'm looking forward to a new year and a fresh new start.
