Slip Sliding Away...In The WRONG Direction!

Yes, the roads are icy after the rain/snow mix we just got, but thankfully, this is NOT a story about sliding into the ditch. The truth is, I had been going down that slippery slope of gaining a few pounds back again, over the past 4 weeks.

I went back to Weight Watcher's tonight to "face the music"and weighed in. I knew I had gained a few pounds, but I kept hoping I'd be able to take those pounds back off, before I went and officially weighed in again. Unfortunately, HOPING doesn't do much for weight loss, believe it or not. You actually have to WORK at it. I weighed myself at home, and was less than thrilled to find out that I'd gained somewhere in the vicinity of 5 lbs! I weighed in at WW, and their scale concurred. Exactly 5 pounds.

I have no one to blame but myself. I know what I'm supposed to be doing, and what I'm NOT supposed to be doing, but I haven't been doing those things. You know, like NOT eating anything and everything that looks good (and there's a lot of that kind of thing around this time of year), and writing down EVERYTHING I eat, and um...actually counting my points and keeping track of them. You know, basic Weight Watcher's stuff.

The good new is, 1) I went back tonight and stayed for the meeting, and 2) Weight Watchers just unveiled a BRAND NEW PROGRAM called last week, unbeknownst to me, since I had been MIA from the meetings for the past 3 weeks. The new program is called, "Momentum". Hopefully, that will be enough to get me motivated to get back on track, so I can lose this extra 5 lbs...and get me started in back in the right direction at the start of a brand new year. And as our leader put it tonight, I'll have a jump on all of those people that will start on January 1st, because they've made a new year's resolution.

I like food too much...doesn't help that I have become addicted to this computer thanks to Lisa :) (Love you Lisa!!) I just have to get the energy to get up and do something...If I didn't have the little ones with hubby gone all the time I might join you on Monday nights...gotta do something soon!

You can get back on track Jeannie! Don't give up! Just let it be an encouragement to work a bit harder~ and yes, write everything down!

I am so needing to get back in shape, lose pounds, and get back on the program! Cheryl told me they came up with a new program which combines the Flex and Core...interesting. I am anxious to see how it works.

Yes! I'm really glad they came out with a new program right now. I didn't even have to mark my weight as a +, just because they have a new pocket guide that is also your weight record. It has a handy points calculator attatched to it too. It's like a brand new start for me this way.

Holidays will be over soon. That will make it a lot easier. I too had trouble buttoning my pants Sunday.I have to stay away from Jodie's yummy food. Next party when we are both standing over the table, you can remind me about my pants. That will keep me away. LOL
Lord bless,

You can get back on track! 5lbs is water weight, it'll come off fast!

I'm still hovering at the 5lb mark, only at 4.5 tonight. I call it water weight, makes me feel better.
