Weekly Weigh-in {December 28, 2012}

I tracked every bite I took for three days this week. I drank plenty of water five days. I ate far too many Christmas treats six days. Despite not being 100% dedicated, I just weighed myself at home and lost two pounds this week! I'll take it! Next week my son will be back in school and I'll attend a Weight Watchers meeting for the first time in a very long time. I'm looking forward to it! How was your week?

It's the end of the world as I know it!

This morning I woke up and saw many posts on facebook about it being the end of the world. According to the Mayan calendar, today was supposed to be the day that the world ends. I guess they figured out that the sun was going to explode or a meteor would crush us or something like that. I'm a Christian and believe what the Bible says, that no one knows the day except for God! I think it's a little funny, though, that today of all days is the day that I chose to restart my weight-loss journey. Today, is the end of the world as I know it (go ahead, sing know you want to.... ♫ I feel fine! ♫).

  • Today, ends the bad habits that have lead me to where I am today.
  • Today ends the excessive intake of sweets.
  • Today ends the lazy all-day couch sitting marathons.
  • Today ends the choice of diet soda over water.
  • Today ends the carb overloads.

There are many things that need to end in order for me to get on track and stay there. When I lost 90+ pounds before, I was fooling myself and I'm pretty sure I was fooling many people around me. I didn't really change my habits, which was why it was so easy for me to gain it back. I wasn't exercising nearly enough, I was still eating whatever I wanted just in reduced quantities, and I wasn't building healthy habits. That ends today. Today I am beginning to build healthy habits that I'll be able to continue for the rest of my life, which hopefully will be longer than today! ;)

New Beginnings

Well, here I am again. Starting over. No looking back at my failures, but only at my successes to move forward and be inspired and reminded that I can do this! I'm weighing in tomorrow (yes, I'm starting the week of Christmas) and will be back to blogging. I had started a new blog once before, but this one feels like home, so this is where I'll be posting.
