Weight Loss Wednesday


High blood pressure.

Sleeping poorly.

Gaining weight.


Time to get serious

REALLY serious.

To that end, I've gone back to Weight Watchers.

I did the program years ago, and had great success, but then I let life get in the way of being faithful to the program, and I ate with abandon, and surprise, I gained the weight back and then some. And THEN some.

Recently I tried to cut back on my own, but I wasn't really taking it seriously enough, and wasn't getting anywhere.

I think I was afraid to make any kind of real commitment because I thought it would just be one more source of stress and that was the last thing I needed in my life right now.

But I finally decided to just do it.

And I am so glad.

I've been doing well with the weight loss (about 15 pounds so far), but more importantly, I'm at a place in my head where I feel like food doesn't control me. Like it just doesn't matter if I can eat the whatever-it-is-that's-in-front-of-me-at-the-moment.

I don't know if that feeling is with me to stay or if it's temporary since I'm all eager-beaver right now and all.

All I know is that getting fit and healthy right now is important to me.

Very important.

So I thought I'd do a weekly thing on my blog that shares thoughts, tips, progress, set backs, etc.

And I have a before picture, but I'm not ready to share it yet. Maybe in a few months when I have a decent after  in progress picture to put up.

If anyone else is going through something similar, I'd love to hear from you. Maybe we can form our own little support group.
