I think there are some reasonable fears: I won't try some of the physical tricks my grandkids show me. But if the fear is of losing something I have or of not getting something I want, I'll try to summon the courage to move ahead.

I think the fear of regaining the weight we lost is common amoung those of us who have done WW dozen's of times. I know I have lost and regained several times, and keep telling myself that I can do it. I get on the scale daily and when I jump in weight I panic and wonder is this the start of my regain. But then I cut back on my portions and start weighting and measuring. Most times its water weight, but then again, I don't want to take any chances its not.

I think in the past I have self destructed for many reasons. This time I really want to see it through and I get scared I won't. That is when I just take a deep breath and say "I'm going to do it today. I will think about tomorrow after today."

I do much better when I focus on one day at a time. They have really added up and since the end of Jan. I have come back down from 230. I am happy with that. I all adds up.

The numbers go up if you are not watching what you are doing but if you are doing right, the numbers go down!

Joan again you have gotten into my head. I have been wrestling with myself all weekend. Should I give up, should I keep going, what am I doing to myself, why, all of it and yet most is the same as always. I want to be comfortable in my own skin but yet i'm not. So If I give up now I will never be. So i'm continuing on. I just need to follow the plan and see where that takes me. After all that is why i'm here right?

:Hello all have a wonderful Monday.

Michelle

It all begins with me.

Blanche, I have to admit, ''I am a knitter drop out." I made the one scarf and got so frustrated that I turned my knitting needles in and gave my yarn to my Niece who made scarf's for me. Ruthann did one scarf with the same type of weave that I had done and she wrestled with it as well. No, I am never going to be a knitter, but Ruthann is loving her new found hobby. I am back to my quilt pieces, I know how to thread a needle. :)

I think that is how I feel at the moment is when I lose this weight will I put it on again but I will just have to figure that out when I come to it, one step at a time and at the moment I need to lose the weight.
I am so proud of you Joan you are doing so well. Big Hugs to everyone

Never stop because you are afraid - you are never so likely to be wrong.

We may not want to admit it, but at times we are all afraid. On our journey to better health I have had several fearful moments, some happening not too many weeks ago. As all of you know that stop by each day to ready my ramblings, you know all too well of my struggles, one week I maybe on a high the next I maybe eating everything I can get my hands on. The thing you may or may not have read was what I had not written and that was the ''fear'' I was feeling, am I going to gain back all that weight I worked so hard to lose? Am I ever going to be able to gain control of myself? Am I going to have to tell my Weight Watcher Friend Forever, that I just can't do this anymore? Oh there was a lot of fear going on inside of me, plus I had the surgery to think about, and dealing with a family member that is still causing problems. But, maybe fear is a good thing from time to time. I needed to be scared, when I went into the hospital for my surgery I had several days of being SF under my belt, and being in the hospital and rehab just kept me in check. I was very fearful about coming to my sister's as well due to her DH believes he needs dessert each day. I have to say I have been very proud of myself due to my first Sunday here there was birthday cake, I took a piece only to have it dropped on the floor and the three little dogs cleaned up that mess, so that was my Omen that I was not to eat cake. So as of today I am still SF but I have lost count how many weeks its been. I have been making things for my sister and I to eat especially at supper time, and I am NOT going back for seconds no matter how good it is. When I return home on Thursday of this week, I won't be able to run off to the store to buy something on the impulse so again not being able to drive is a good thing.
I guess what I am getting at is this, ''sometimes what seems like a real pain is actually something we can benefit from." I am making the most of the things I cannot do.

Hugs,
Joan
