Time to recommit

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.
