Holy shit, I like pie!

One year later…..

If anyone is still reading this blog, you’ve probably come to the correct conclusion that I basically stopped doing Weight Watchers. You’d be correct and I’m not feeling good about that decision. A lifestyle change has to be just that…life changing. For awhile it was good, I was incredibly successful on Weight Watchers and my husband and I became slim and looked awesome……..

Then we thought, “Weight Watchers? HA! Who needs Weight Watchers when we have the tools and the know how to get this done ourselves?!?!”

If you thought that plan would fail in the most epic way possible, you are correct. Weight Watchers works..it’s a fantastic plan, but you have to commit to fully changing and not doing it half assed. If you do, you’ll find yourself where I am now…with the scale creeping back and a deep sense of panic that I will go back to where I was.  I cancelled my membership and have not followed the plan the way it was intended. I still work out three to four times a week which is a lot better than what I used to do and I try and make better choices about food, but when faced with the decision of veggies versus fries, french fries will win EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.

This blog kept me honest. It made me accountable as did going to the meetings. For now, I’m going to start with the blog and try desperately to win back the love of me again. Remember the rap on how my self esteem hurt me? Yeah well it’s time to let that shit go and get to work. I have way too many skinny clothes that are super cute for the spring and my brother is getting married which means…bridesmaid dress. Possibly strapless. With cameras aimed at me in every angle imaginable. I don’t want to look on those photos and think, “why didn’t I do better?” I know I can..I have before and I will do this again. I just need a little push. Some words of encouragement and some motivation. So I’m setting a goal…..a goal of forty pounds by May. I can do this. I will do this.

There’s too much at stake and there are too many people counting on me. Tomorrow will be a true testament to my commitment. It’s the annual cookie extravaganza at work. And oh my Lord and Taylor do I love the snickerdoodles that are made. All great rewards include making a sacrifice…so in order to reduce the size of my ass, I’m going to avoid the cookies.

Here’s to success.

    Weight loss isn’t about self-control it’s about getting off the carbohydrate wheel. Try Barry Sears, The Zone…I’ve lost weight really slowly, but I’ve never felt healthier, and have heaps more energy.

    Hi, Julia. I recently stumbled upon your blog. I feel like I could have written the words you wrote myself. I lose and re-gain and lose the same stinking pounds again and again before I finally lose and move on to the next five. I wish you well in your quest. I hope to be able to zip my skirt all the way up for my cousin’s wedding this may.
