I'm back on the wagon

So we all know how the weight "wagon" goes.  I think I've spent more time in the dirt than actually riding on it, but I think that's pretty typical.  As long as I don't decide that it's better in the dust and mud.  Well after taking a nice long shower, I've decided to hop back on.  Again.  I know that my determination will only last as long as I "feel" like it.  So, as long as I keep moving in the right direction, I'm moving ahead.  I don't know if any of that made sense, but I'm going with it!


Willpower and determination only get you so far.  It actually takes work too.  Ya know, I spent about 4 months in those Weight Watcher's meetings.  I was totally excited and paid my money every month.  The thing I didn't get was that you have to do more than that!  You actually have to like eat right and exercise.  Who knew? 


I hadn't been to Jenny Craig in a month due to some financial workings on my part.  With gas so stinking high, I was having a hard time justifying the cost.  But I went in yesterday and do you know what???  I actually lost over 2 pounds.  I also had my councilor take my measurements again.  I was down another 7 inches for a total of 12.  OK, that's some motivation right there!


So, now I'm back on.  I can do this.  I will do this.  It's hard.  But what in life that's worth anything, isn't?  I know that I'm gonna quit.  A lot.  But as long as I get up and decided to start again, then progress will be made.  So, here I go again!

That is great Becki! For me it has always been about consistency. I am not good every day or even every week, but i figure as long as I want it and am good most of the time i'll get there. I just started really working out again. It will be a while before i can run a few miles at once, or really push myself like i use to, but my goal is to be fit. so i'll make it even if it takes me a year or more. I am proud of you for continuing and you look great! keep it up. mary
