Saturday, July 18, 2009's been a while...

Wow!!! It has been almost TWO weeks since I last posted something. I am on this computer all of the time...why has it been so long??? :0) Keeping busy on Facebook or Weight Watchers, I guess!!! I have found a tremendous amount of support for my weight loss journey on both sites. I have also found support for those dealing with depression or anxiety while trying to lose weight. I have lost 4.8 lbs so far on my journey. Some days, I think...4.8 lbs...that STINKS!!! I need to lose the weight faster...well, I put the breaks on those thoughts. I have slowly gained this weight over the past 7 years...I did not gain it overnight, and I am not going to lose it overnight.

I am slowly trying to take control of many aspects of my health/weight, my shopping, my finances, getting my son on a routine, cleaning/organizing the house, going back to school....whew!!! That is my problem...I want to accomplish SO much...that when I think about them all...I get overwhelmed, decide that if I can't do it all, I am not going to do anything at all...and then do nothing. Nothing.

I think I am going to head to bed early this evening and hit the gym in the morning. We will see. I will keep you all posted!!!

OP ALL Weekend!!! Yeah!!!

I can't believe what a difference a day (or a few days) makes!!! I feel great!!! My outlook is positive...I don't know why, but I feel like I finally got it "right" this time. I am not sure what snapped inside me...I am not going to knock is working!!!

I stayed completely, totally On Plan since Wednesday!!! On Plan!!! I am so happy. I even managed to get a few activity points in!!!

I just had to get it out there. I am so pleased with my progress. We will see how it goes with my next weigh-in on Tuesday.

Things otherwise are going all right. DH is on my back about my housekeeping skills. Yes, I am not a very good housekeeper...but I am working on step at a time is all I can do. Hopefully he is just in a funk about it, and that is why he is picking on me about it. I just feel so overwhelmed sometimes. Oh well, being critical of the housework I can handle...knock my parenting skills...then we have problems!!!

I don't mean to sound so down all of a sudden...because I really am not. I feel great!!! DS had a pretty good day...just one major meltdown...and that makes it a good day!!!

I work on Tuesday and Wednesday. The weather is supposed to be very nice on Tuesday. A day full of possibilities!!! I can't wait!!! :0)

Good Night Friends!!!

Yeah!!! Two Days Down...

It is a small victory, but it is a victory all the same. I have stayed OP (on plan in the Weight Watcher world) for TWO STRAIGHT DAYS!!! I have stayed within my points range, and have even managed to STAY AWAY FROM THE DRIVE-THRU!!! That alone, is the biggest victory!!! I still have a LONG way to go...but I have started to take the right path.

I am so happy. It may not be a big deal to all, but it is a HUGE deal to me!!!

Hope to write more soon.
