These Are My Confessions

1. I joined Weight Watchers 7 weeks ago.
2. I hadn't really been following the plan (umm, hello NYC, Thanksgiving, and loads of other excuses).
3. I was sick last week. So sick that I called in two days.
4. I lost 11 pounds last week. I tracked and ate as many points as I could (there was one day I wasn't able to eat all my points), but food just didn't taste good. Diet Coke didn't even taste good. And I drank lots and lots of liquids. And I ate out at multiple restaurants. And I skipped 4 days at the gym. Folks, that is pretty unheard of. I usually go to the gym 6 days a week.
5. I really want the poundage to stay off, but I know that a loss like that is unhealthy and not characteristic.
6. I still really want the weight to stay off.
7. I'm home for Christmas and scared shitless about all the food around that I normally don't eat back in Nashville. So far so good. I did have one piece of my mom's toffee. This in not normal at all. Usually I inhale the entire container no matter the size before I bring my suitcase in.
8. I'm back in the 190's.
9. I still really want the weight to stay off.
10. I am going to the gym tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday while I am home or at least getting some form of exercise.

Wishing you the best holiday with all of your loved ones!

I Needed Some Motivation...

And I realized all of about 5 minutes ago that in less than 4 weeks I will be on a plane to Montana to go skiing with 12+ other people. Only 2 of whom I know. There will be single guys and there will be triathletes. There will be a hot tub. And then there will be me. This led to trying on swimsuits (and maybe a bikini or two) I bought at the end of the summer. I am pleased to say I felt comfortable in all of them.

Must rock the next few weeks hardcore, but I am going to enjoy Christmas like Christmas should be enjoyed :)

Wishing you a Merry Christmas!
