I'm Back!

Hey again everybody.  I know a lot of you have been wondering where I am, but I assure you that I am back.  I have something to finally write about.  The last couple of weeks have been tough for me.  I hit the perverbial wall.  I wasn't losing the weight and I was having a few health issues that I had to go to the doctor for.  I was starting to feel bummed and that I wouldn't be able to get the weight off.  I was starting to feel like I was going to be like this forever.  But I'm back!  I'm ready to do this again.  I'm going to be doing things a lot differently now. 

I just joined Weight Watchers tonight with my father-in-law.  We are going together to help be each others support system.  Weight Watchers has changed immensly since the last time I went there.  The new Points Plus program really sounds like it's going to be a lot easier to do.  I have to remind myself though that I am not going to the meetings to just lose the weight.  I'm going to keep going to the meetings to keep off the weight and completely change my life for good!  I weighed in at 311.4 lbs.  That pretty much sucks, but I'm not going to let it get me down.  I'm going to really try to do this.  Wait...Scratch that.... I AM going to do this.  I have to take baby steps.  I need to find what works for me and I really hope this will work.  I'm glad to be back on my blod and I hope you all follow my progress.  My blog most likely won't be everyday, but it will be at the very least once a week after my meeting.  Meeting...ha...that kind of sounds like I'm in foody rehab!  I guess in a way I am.  I am addicted to eating.  Not necessarily over-eating, but just food in general.  I don't really know how to eat and I'm hoping that going to Weight Watchers will help me find that niche I've been looking for.

It sounds like the group that goes to the meeting we will be going to is a great group.  Krys, our meeting leader said that this week that group lost a total of 134 lbs!  That really lit a spark in me.  I think I'm going to like this group!  Like Krys says, "Success Breeds Success!" 


  1. Yeah!! I was getting ready to call you and check up on ya. Glad to see you have the fire again! Try to add the small workouts every week as well. You got this!

  2. That is fantastic :) I have always thought about weight watchers myself.... Is it terribly expensive?

    I think I told you before, but due to reading this blog (combined with the fact that the current person I am seeing is extremely thin) I, myself, have been hitting the gym. I lost quite a bit suddenly but damnit, the last 2 weeks I have lost nothing!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. @Chris: I know... Lol... I was feeling pretty down about a lot of things but I really feel like this will work for me. It's really easy to follow and I'm going to go the meetings every week to help keep me in check!

    @Miranda: I understand that feeling. Weight watchers isn't too bad. You can do a few options to pay. I am doing the monthly fee which is 39.99 a month but you get all the eTools as well wight that or you can pay 12 dollars a week. You should check it out. It's a great place to get support!
