Welcome!! A little background . . . I have struggled with my weight for 14 years now and I don't want to do it anymore. I have gained and lost 75 pounds twice and I'd like to lose it one more time and never gain it again. I'm trying a blog to help me stay on track with my goals, accountability, and my life along the way.
Because I need to get back on. I fell off the wagon, hit my head, and had amnesia so I forgot I was on Weight Watchers and going to the gym and stuff. It came rushing back to me like a bad dream when I stepped on the scale yesterday morning. I was up 2 pounds. Sigh. I do have a list of excuses. But they are just that, excuses. It was like the perfect storm. PMS (which seems to be worse every third month), I struggle with depression more than I'm willing to admit, everyone around me at work was so sick I was tempted to call in healthy, and then I had 36 hour flu bug. All of that made me feel pretty entitled to stay home from the gym. Honestly, as I type this, the boot camp class I did not go to is just finishing up. The day I lost the tracking battle was on day 38. I had successfully tracked every bite for 37 consecutive days, then on the 38th day, I was just dozing off the sleep for the night and remembered that I hadn't put in the supper that I didn't weigh and measure or the handful of graham crackers that I didn't count. Because I didn't actually know how many points I had consumed, I decided not to get out of bed to attempt tracking it. I SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN OUT OF BED. Breaking my streak lead me to not track for the next six days. So tomorrow is day one.
Hopefully the Biggest Loser has some motivation for me tonight!
