Tuesday, June 27, 2017 - not sure what happened, but that is the day a switch flipped in me and I got back on plan. I had weighed in the previous saturday. I just started tracking my food that morning. It wasn't planned, I was already at work, drinking my coffee, listening to a recording of a session I had last year with a psychic, yes, a psychic. She is really good, I listen to it at least once a month, I get something different from it every time. She was talking about my health, etc and that was the moment, I just started tracking. I have had a loss every week since then.
I am a lifetime member of WW, reached my goal over 30 years ago, had been going consistently (mostly) for the last 12 years. Previously, I lost over 50 lbs in 2007. Maintained for about a year, then slowly gained most of it back. I have tried (half-heartedly) over the years, but really struggled. I was unhappy in my relationship, family issues, etc etc. BUT, I still kept going to meetings. Would weigh in once a month and just sat there, knowing I was doing nothing, but felt it was better than not going at all - could only imagine how much I would have gained if I had completely stopped. And I made some really good friends and they were my support system, never judged me and inspired me as well.
So, since the end of June, I have tracked every single day, can't remember the last time I did that - probably over 12 years ago,when I last was successful. I have been walking and started doing yoga about 6 weeks ago, I go 3 days a week. This is a huge deal for me, I had tried yoga in the past, but never stuck with it. Now, I love it! What a difference in how I feel - gaining muscle and strength - I am so excited to see how much better I will be in 6 months.
I have been training for a big hike at the end of October. Actually, we have been trying to doing it for the last 3 years, but I always had excuses, mainly because I was in no physical condition to do it, now I am!!! It is one of the hardest trails in our Sandia Mountains. And for once, I feel confident to do it - it will be hard, but so worth it.
I am down 26 lbs, heading to wonderland and so excited! I am feeling great, have learned so many things about myself this past year and look forward to my future.
