Time to recommit

Saturday, January 08, 2011

So, I admit I have been struggling a lot this past year and the only real barrier is myself. Its extremely frustrating because I know where I used to be and there are times that it gets me down. But I'm trying not to look back and just move forward. I went to my WW meeting this morning (hadn't been since before christmas), I am a lifetime member (25 years ago) and have come close but never achieved my goal weight again. I am changing that this year. I have to admit I always get energized from my meetings, so I have always been going even though the scale hasn't moved much for me. If I didn't have my meetings, I would have given up a long time ago. But I need to start over. WW just rolled out a new plan about a month ago and I am adjusting to it. I like it. I do need to plan my meals better and really work on the exercise again. There was a point about 3 years ago when I was so active and I loved to exercise. I want to feel that again. I haven't done much walking for almost two months, but the last 3 days I made a point of walking and got in over 10,000 steps every day - it felt so good.

I don't believe in New Year's resolutions because I believe they are way too easy to break, but I am setting goals for myself. Starting with getting back into exercise, which I started this week. I already journal my food every day, so good with that. And then, just working on small weight goals - first one is losing 10 lbs. Then I will set my next weight loss goal. The big final goal - be at my personal goal weight by the end of the year - it is not impossible and I will achieve it!

Always a work in progress - I'm taking care of myself.

Why is the 2nd or 3rd time around, so much harder. we both know what to do and how to achieve it. So let's get busy! Yeah! kim
