Another year, Another goal

Well if you are still here with me I thank you for sticking in there! I know I lost some readers during my hiatus and I cant say I blame them for leaving. It's been pretty boring here for the last few months... nothing new... except the fact that I gained 14 pounds since my birthday!

No, Im dead serious. Fourteen fucking pounds.

Im not bitter, Im not angry. Im just motivated. I know what I have to do and I am fairly confident that I can do it.

I have a great system all set in place and I am ready to fight this thing head on. I am back to Weight Watchers, and a new season of Biggest Loser is on... it's a NEW YEAR! Of course!!! It's time to set new goals.

This time I am prepared to be more aggressive with my weigh loss battle. Kicking it up a notch. Working out harder. And getting more diligent about my diet. No more half-assing it.

Two Sundays ago I went back to Weight Watchers and weighed in at... 174 pounds. There I said it- 174 points. I decided right there and then that I would lose more weight that next week, then I had in any other "starting week" on Weight Watchers (and I have started many times!) The most I had ever lost in a week was 5 pounds.

The leader told us a funny little quote at last weeks meeting, "The plan works a little if you do it a little, The plan works a lot if you do it a lot." That is my mantra, and all that chanting it really helped- I LOST 5.6 POUNDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What helped?
My leader told us if we did the following things we WOULD lose weight last week:
1. Write everything down that you eat and drink.
2. track your hunger through out the day
3. Mark your 35 points if you use them.
4. calculate all your portion sizes.
5. Eat fruit and vegetables 5x a day.

I really tried to do all those things last week, plus I worked out a shit-ton.

So, I feel like I'm back and I have some motivation to share- so if you are still hanging in there- I promise to update more often!

See ya lighter!

  3. Great job--just know you're not the only one out there who is "starting over". I gained about 15 lbs since July, and now I'm down five after a great kick start from the new year. New year, new goals & motivation! Good luck & you still have loyal readers!! Happy to see you back :)

  4. YAYYYYYYY!!!!! You're still my favorite, hiatus or not. Con-freaking-gratulations on the HUGE weight loss! (I'm watching BL right now) I'm so excited about this rampage we're on right now. I only lost one pound last week, but this week I'm determined to be better! If you can lose 5.6 (DAMN), I can lose more than 1!!!! LET'S DO THIS. Welcome back. This is your year, girl. This. Is. Your. Year.
