I haven't blogged since early May. Lots has happened in that time. Let's recap.
Got married in June in Key West. (yes you were missed Lizzie!)
After the wedding we jumped straight into "for sickness and for worse". My husband had to have a stent put in his heart. We were no sooner home from the hospital when my step mama called and asked me to come as my dad was having a heart attack. Three days at their house, and home to find my husband was once again back in the hospital with his heart.
Thus my summer became a round robin of hospitals, staying at my parents' home and eating horrid hospital food, gaining weight - make no mistake.
Finally got everybody under control (oh - did I mention that my step mom fell and she was in a wheel chair all summer, after breaking a wrist, ribs and a knee?) Then I had foot surgery - to take care of a bunion - no emergency, but well needed. Two weeks in a cast, four weeks in a boot. About half way through the boot part of that program, I caught sight of myself. Fat, fat, fat. Not happy about it. I knew that SP wasn't working as I needed it to, or I wasn't using it as I needed it to.
So I joined Weight Watchers. Except, that I miss SP, so I would sneak back to track things and spin the wheel. Every Saturday I go to my WW meeting to weigh in and I am better at tracking my food on WW than I was on SP, perhaps because there are points involved, perhaps because I pay for it, not sure. What I do know is that since Oct. 19 I have lost 30 pounds! I am 20 pounds from my goal weight.
And I feel good. Really good. I don't snore anymore, I sleep better, I just feel good. But I miss my peeps here on SP. So I am going to use both sites, why not? Nothing to lose have lots of support right?
Keep fighting the good fight my peeps! We can do this using all the tools we have at hand! Happy New Year to all!
